X201 is my main laptop, at home and away.

I have searched time and time again for webcam drivers, but they are nowhere to be found. The best advice found online is to install Communications Utility and then supposedly you will see the camera option in there when you press Fn+F6. There isn't any, only audio setings.

Supposedly the drivers are baked into Windows 8, but I really do not want to install Windows 8 over my current 7 install just to see if the camera will work since I am not so enthusiatic about upgrading to 8.

I know the camera isn't broken or disconnected, I have gotten it to work once in Linux and never in windows before or since then.

I guess I'm asking if anyone knows if Win 8 provides the necessary drivers?
