Unhappy lost my lightscribe and webcam software

I did a clean install of windows 7 on compaq presario cq61 220sa as there was little on it worth saving but its wiped out the software for the webcam and the lightscribe. this is my first computer and the searches for help using google or the hp website are just baffling to a beginner. any help or guidance would be appreciated

Not sure if you're 32 or 64bit, so just select it, then scroll down to the cam and dvd

Select your operating system Compaq Presario CQ61-220SA Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

It's most likely too late now considering that you formatted. However HP / Compaq laptops normally have a folder called SWSETUP. It's normally in your C: Drive under C:\SWSetup

Copy all the files from that. This folder has both your software and your drivers.

Main Rig - AMD FX-8350x8 4.0Ghz CPU, 4x 8Gb (32Gb) DDR3 Ram, Gigabyte GA-970A-D3, GeForce GT 970 4Gb, 1x 256Gb SSD\8Tb (3+2+2+1) SATA HDD, DVDRW, SB X-Fi, Win 10 (64-bit)
Asus N61JV-JX231V - Intel Core i5 3437u (1.9 - 2.4 GHz), 12GB, 640GB, 16" Display, nVidia 325M 1Gb, DVD-RW, Win 10 (64-bit)
