Web cam don't work


Hi, welcome to FixYa.

have you tried installing the webcam driver yet? If you haven't so, please install the correct driver for your webcam. You get the drivers from here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3224052

Remember to pick the correct operating system. If you use Windows 7, you can safely pick Windows Vista.

If you have so, and the webcam is still doesn't work, try this to see whether your webcam is still working or not. I assume you are using Microsoft Windows as your operating system and have already installed .NET Framework in your Windows. If haven't so, please install the .NET Framework first from this site:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=0a391abd-25c1-4fc0-919f-b21f31ab88b7

1. Go to http://touchless.codeplex.com/

2. Go to Download page. Or use this link directly: http://touchless.codeplex.com/releases/view/17986#DownloadId=45363

3. Extract file touchless.zip to your computer.

4. Try to run TouchlessDemo.exe

If this program appears showing you on your webcam, that means your webcam is still working. But if it don't then most probably your webcam is broken.

I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

If you upgrade your operating system like from windows xp to windows vista, you need to install new hardware driver for your computer like for LAN, webcam, WAN and others because the old driver is only compatible with the old operating system and not with VISTA operating system. Solution would are, download webcam and WAN driver for Windows Vista and install it into your computer. Don't just upgrade your computer because the configuration is not the same with the old operating system. If problem still exist, just upgrade the service pack from 2 to 3. There is available install for upgrading the service pack of each operating system. and surely all your hardwares will function.

Need drivers webcam for windows 7


Currently there aren't any drivers for your computer with Windows 7. Dell only offers drivers for your computer with Windows XP or Windows Vista. I would try using the Creative Labs Webcam Driver they have for Vista. Since many things about Vista & 7 are similar, often the drivers for Vista will work with Windows 7. Go to dell.com, enter the model of your computer, choose Vista as your operating system, then go to Input Devices, choose the Creative Webcam and download the driver to your desktop (I suggest against using Dell's Download Manager, just download via your browser like you usually would). Then install the driver. With any luck your will be up and running with your webcam.

My webcam is not working .


I 'm not sure what operating system you installed, so i'm giving you the webcam driver download link for Windows Vista.

Windows Vista :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software11/COL24260/mp-62602-3/setup.exe

If you are running Windows XP then I'm sorry to let you know that,your notebook manufacturer (HP) doesn't have support for your Webcam Driver.It won't work in windows XP.

Good Luck.

Did not have Webcam driver for Compaq C773TU model for Vista


You didnt say whether this worked before or if you are doing a new OS install but the web camera driver is part of the vista operating system. See below info from HP....

Microsoft provides an automated Windows update function that examines your computer and installs the appropriate drivers and programs for Service Pack 2. One of the updated drivers, Microsoft USB Video driver , is required for proper operation of the webcam on your HP or Compaq notebook PC.
If you have updated to SP2 but the webcam is not working, see HP Notebook PCs - Webcam Does Not Work with Vista or After Upgrading to Vista , for detailed instructions on manually installing the latest webcam driver (usbvideo.sys) from Microsoft.
