Those numbers are all about the lens (and are pretty standard for all the basic webcams) but don't help much with identifying the make/model of the device.  

Is there a model or brand name?  Is it built-in or USB?  

Best of all if you look in Device Manager in Windows 7 (Type 'Device Manager' into the Search box and hit Enter) find the Unknown device entry where the driver is missing, double-click on it and in the window that opens click on the Details tab, use the drop drown menu there to find the Hardware ID of the device and either Google it or post here - that will identify which driver will work for that camera.

It's a USB. It says Gear head on the base. Device manager says Vimicro web cam.

In Device Manager you should be able to find an entry that looks like ""USB\VID_0A86""
It's that code that identifies the matching driver.



vmicro who make the camera components for Gear have detection software that might help you find the model
Direct download here  but their drivers only support up to Vista.

Let's see if there's a Device ID to work with first or alternatively see if you can spot it in this line-up of suspects ...
