HP WEBCAM INSTALLATION

I WANT TO INSTALL THE HP WEBCAM

  • mgarcia7707 May 03, 2009

    I just bought an HP Webcam today and I have an HP laptop. Whenever I insert the webcam's install disk, it pops up asking for permission and I press 'continue'. After that nothing happens. I've tried several times and the same thing happens. What do I do? I even tried plugging in the webcam and having my computer search online for the files and automatically install it, but it can't find anything.

How to Install a Webcam


Purchase a camera. Webcams can range from a basic model for around $30 to ones that contain a motion sensor for around $350 or so. Most mid-priced models come with a microphone install. Decide on what this camera will be used for and choose accordingly.

Read the installation instructions completely before attempting to install the camera. Although this may seem tedious and unnecessary, it can save time and headaches in the long run.

  • 3 Back up the computer's hard drive just to be safe. This will allow for a speedy recovery should the installation mess up the computer.
  • 4 Install the webcam software. Before deciding to install the disc that came with the camera, check the Internet for an updated version of the software and download that if available.
  • 5 Plug in the webcam. The software should give a prompt at the appropriate time. they are usually installed with a USB cable. If installed correctly, the computer will acknowledge so by popping up a message saying it can see the new device.

    Download an instant message program if using the web camera for chatting. Some free IM download programs include Yahoo Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger and Apple iChat.

    How can i install windows xp on hp compac dc 7900. blue screen error shown during installation


    Restart the process again...insert the cd in to the cd rom..restart the computer then you will see a screen which says press ant key to boot from cd...press space bar..the installation will start from the point where it was left when you received the blue screen...

    If the blue screen is coming again and again then contact any local tech there might be some hardware issue.

    Also make sure while installatng the windows there is no extra peripheral attached with the computer like printer,webcam,mass storage device etc.

    How to set the webcam


    Hi,

    Follow the below steps to set up a webcam on your PC
    1. Before connecting the webcam to the PC USB, install the driver CD that came along with the Webcam.
    2. Once installation is complete, insert the Webcam cable into the USB port.
    3. You will find some drivers getting installed at the lower right corner of your screen.
    4. Wait until you see the message "Device is now ready to be used"

    Here you go. Your webcam is now ready to be used. Test the webcam with some video chat software or else
    1. Press Window+Pause keys or right click my computer and select Properties.
    2. Under hardware tab, click Device manager
    3. Expand the imaging devices and you should find the webcam name listed there. Else the installation of your webcam was not proper.

    Hope this helps. Feel free to ask any questions

    I installed a4tech pk-35n webcam but upon opening it through hamcap message is saying no video capture hardware. please help


    It is because your computer can't detect the a4tech webcam, the proper way of installing is first don't plug in the a4tech device, install the driver first then plug-in the a4tech device, wait for the computer to detect your webcam. Make sure that the installation is complete. If the installation ask you to restart your computer, do it right away.

    did you install the drivercd that came with your webcam?

    when installing make sure that your webcam is not plugin into your pc...let the driver installation finish and connect your webcam when promted by the installation wizard....some some installation need your PC to reboot or restart for the installation to take effect..

    I just purchased a webcam >model#spc620nc. When I opened the box to install it I noticed that the disc had a fairly big nick in it. Is there anyway I can download the installation on line? When trying...


    Yes, you should be able to download it online. You're probably getting the installation error due to the nicked CD. Can you give the make and model of you webcam and i can find you a link where you can download it..

    Cheers!
