Web cam trouble

I have an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC, with a built in webcam, but i have no idea how to use it. I can't find the program anywhere on my computer to access it. I got on facebook recently, and facebook asked if it could access my web cam to take a live picture, I said yes, and it automatically turned it on! So I know it works I just don't know how to get to it myself. HELP!

I cant find where I go to turn on my built in web cam for my hp pavilion dv9000?


that depends on your usage, application or software.
for example, if you are using skype, select the menu choice for settings and choose video.
what program do you want to use your webcam for?
you may have to get software to use your webcam.
that software will have the webcam controls.

Cant turn my built in webcam on??


Hi,

This is known Webcam issue in DV6000 notebooks. To resolve or narrow down the issue, we have to check few things.

First open Device Manager.

Please follow these steps to open Device Manager:

1. Right Click on 'My Computer' icon on Desktop and choose Properties.
2. The System properties Window opens.
3. Click Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button.

Expand + Imagining Devices and check if the HP Webcam is listed under it.

If Webcam is not listed there, then you have to contact HP to get the BIOS update.

If it is listed there, right click on it and select Disable. Again right click on it and select Enable.

Now open any applications like Quickplay and check if Webcam is working or not.

Please reply me if that won't resolve the issue, I can provide more work arounds
