Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
Hp pavilion dv 2000, webcam is dark, need to be brighten
I have the same problem on an HP Pavilion dv1000.
This is what I have discovered. The properties of the webcam (contrast/brightness etc) are not available via Windows anywhere that I can find.
However if you install Skype you can access these properties, its free, its a good voip client and you can turn off the autoload at startup. Go to Tools > Options > Video Settings and you will see a button marked "Webcam Settings" under the "Select webcam:" dropdown. Click on this and you have access to the webcam properties, I found checking the Low Light option on the Advanced tab makes the webcam image much brighter, you can play with the other settings but I didnt bother.
If you then go to My Computer > HP Webcam you will see that the webcam is also brighter there, this seems to be the case even if you exit Skype. Haven't tested it in other apps but it should work ok.
Hope this helps

When in converstation for example msn. press the webcam and go to the arrow that is to the right of your profile picture. There go to webcam settings and put more in the brightness. Problem solved.
