    You didn't describe that webcam, so no one here can determine if a Windows Vista software driver package is available for it.

    A Logitech brand webcam is what I recommend, but I'm not sure if any models are still available that support Windows Vista SP2 32-bit.
    You will need to do some on-line searching.

    I went on Logitech site and the affordable webcam there is not compatible with Vista.

    Depending on where you live and what's available, you may have difficulty finding a webcam that's compatible with Windows Vista.

    That's what I realize, somebody told me to transfer to Windows 7 but this system doesn't receive updates anymore.

    if you can send another picture from another angle or plug the camera to a computer and see what says as an identifier, also if the camera has some serial number or something similar it would be very helpful to have

    For what i see, the camera could be a Klip Xtreme, but i cannot find a specific model

    Maybe this will work,, an universal Windows driver for cameras: (Its designed for Windows XP but maybe it works)

    https://es.pcdrivers.guru/all-web-cams-driver/download-2917.html

    Also you can try by downloading Driver Booster 8, the program is officialy supported and it works with XP and Vista, the program updates and installs all sort of drivers, so maybe the program can find the driver and install it

    Thanks to reply
    I have downloaded that booster but it didn't help, my computer is still searching for a driver but doesn't find anyone. Here more photos of my webcam. All the inscriptions are in the front of the camera but there's no brand.

    i couldnt find any specific drivers but i found some USB 2.0 Universal drivers, maybe some of theese drivers will work, i reccomend starting with the Realtek ones:

    https://www.driverscape.com/download/usb2.0-uvc-vga-webcam

    The first download option is an AD, so dont click in it

    im running out of ideas, maybe this program of Acer can detect the brand, run it with the camera plugged in

    https://global-download.acer.com/SupportFiles/Files/HWID/APP/HWVendorDetection.exe

    Also you can try this program: Drivers Cloud

    https://www.driverscloud.com/en/start

    Happy to help, Greetings from Uruguay :)

    You dont have to change your computer, you can upgrade to Windows 7 or 8.1 that works fine and Windows Update can find the drivers, but if you want to buy one, its in your hands.

    Thank you!, very beautiful place you sent, here we do not have many trees that turn red in autumn.

    Thank you too, it has been a privilege to talk with you.

    P.D. She is not my girlfriend yet XD
