Cross post from the m57ru thread. Not sure if anyone visits frequently anymore. I bought this computer mid-2008, and installed win7 about 4 years ago. It was a huge pain to find compatible drivers back then but I found enough to meet my needs, albeit some of the more insignificant hardware hasn't been used.

I tried all webcam drivers on the clevo site for this model but none have worked for me.
