Hi my name is Todd and I will assist you today.

Here are some generic fixes without knowing your camera and computer model:

To see if your camera software has a option to flip/adjust camera frames, and do as the following: Choose: options point right video Capture Filter. Check the settings for "Vertical Flip" and change it.2. Download a Webcam DriverAsusYou can download the latest Webcam Driver to solve webcam upside down problem. Go to the ASUS support site and download the Webcam Driver corresponding to your hardware PID and install it.

Windows 7 32 or 64 bit?
i don't know
go to start, right click on Computer, select properties
Should tell you on that screen Windows 7 and if it's 32 or 64 bit
just said internet explorer
Can you also Right click on Computer and select Manage. Then go to Device Manager and find imaging devices and tell me what camera (web cam) it has
you didn't do the last thing correct. Go to the start button in the bottom left corner of your screen (looks like a circle with the windows logo), then Right click on the right column where it says Computer. Select Properties. This will bring you to a screen with lots of info...on it is System Type: it will say 32 or 64 here
Lenovo easy cam
ok I found someone else with this problem and they posted a solution. You may have to get the Vista 64 bit drivers for this to work, but otherwise let me know.
1. Go to the Lenovo website and download either the Windows Vista 32 bit or XP drivers. I don’t know why I chose the Vista drivers over XP version except for that I chose the Vista version and it worked. I downloaded the Y510 Lenovo Easy Camera Vista drivers at:
Driver Name: Lenovo Easy Camera Driver Family: IdeaPad Y510 File Size: 16.9M Driver Version: 22.214.171.124 File Format: exe Release Date: 2008-08-21 Description: Applicable OS: Windows Vista 32bit Manufacturer: Lenovo Last modified date: 2011-01-12 Download Here: IN1CAM22WW3.exe
2. Double click to open the file and it will extract the files. My files went to the folder:
In this folder was: Lenovo Easy Camera(Bison) folder Lenovo Easy Camera(Logitech) folder DEV Setup
3. I opened the Lenovo Easy Camera(Bison) folder for no other reason but when I tried it with the Logitech folder, it didn’t work. I guess this means my camera is Bison brand.
4. Select and right click the Setup.exe file for Properties a. Choose the Compatibility tab b. Check the “Run this program in compatibility mode for:” and choose Windows XP (Service Pack 3) c. On this same tab, under the Privilege Level heading, check the box for “Run this program as an administrator” d. Click Apply > OK
5. Now double click this Setup.exe file to install the driver.
6. Restart your computer when prompted.
Voila! Your webcam will be right side up now!

are you saying it won't work with Windows 7?
No I'm saying use the Vista drivers with windows 7. Many devices use the Vista drivers for Windows 7 devices
Unless you see windows 7 drivers there
This link has the windows 7 64 bit drivers
just go to that and click download on the middle left side of the page
There is a possibility that the camera chip was installed wrong at the factory.
The ways that you can test this are:
1. Through another application
2. Through another computer
3. Through another camera
