    Ok, I found this old web cam laying around a few months ago but I couldnt find a compatible windows 7 driver (64-bit). I gave up on it but I though I'd post here in case someone has the same web cam.

    This is the cam:

    The model: PG088AA

    Alright now, this is what I found.
    The hp Webcam Model PG088AA is made by Micro Innovations\Digital Innovations and has the same model number. Also, it is the same as Digital Innovations model DC-4120.

    I will give some links below:
    Digital Innovations & Micro Innovations Forums
    Can't find drivers for PG088AA webcam
    Digital Innovations KB Database\forum
    PG088AA and DC-4120 HP Webcam Driver (for what I don't know)
    PG0088AA#ABA User's Manual
    HP VGA Webcamera webpage, seems to be the same, but with a different stand.
    An HP VGA Webcam Driver for Windows 7 64 bit (may work)

    Goodluck.
    :)

    You are welcome.
    Did any work? As, I had no way to test the drivers.

    Here is the driver for HP PG088A for Vista and win7:

    In win7 you have to install it manually (device manager -> VGA camera -> right mouse button -> install driver -> manually -> choose the unzipped folder

    Wow, you have me perplexed...:confused:

    However!
    Try some of these at Microsoft update catalog. You will, probably, have to use MS Internet Explorer to access this MS site, as, it is finicky about the browser used to access it, sometimes.
    I just did the search for HP usb webcam, but, if you want, you can do the search for "webcam" and there are a lot of them(Logitech, Phillips, Ace, etc.)
    If you do a search for Digital Innovations; nothing comes up, but Micro Innovations does, however, it says Service and Quality Technology Co(just an XP driver).

    :)
