HP USB Webcam Problem

Ok so, I've been having some dificulties with my HP USB Webcam. For some reason, everytime I try to start it in any kind of way, I get a message that says that it is being used by something else. I have reinstalled the drivers about 10 times, and everytime I do it seems to work, until I log out of my account, or shut down my PC. So I'm guessing this is a startup program that is somehow using my webcam on startup until I force it to not use it by unistalling the webcam? I would really like a fix for his, as I am really tired of having to unistall and reinstall my webcam over and over. Does anyone know what kind of application would be using my webcam on startup? If so, could you please tell me?

    At least you can get it to work at some point in the process. The mic works, but nothing else for me.

Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web, do this.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

NIce day Sir! I''ve a problem with my usb web


Mohamed,
If it is a USB webcam, you need to find the drivers. If the webcam is made by HP, you should be able to find the necessary drivers on their site. If not contact the manufacturer of the cam; they can tell you what to do.

Hi, I have a TRUST WB-3400T 14383 and after I upgrade my OS to Win7 unfortunately this webcam is not recognized anymore by the OS. I downloaded specific driver from the TRUST support site (14383-02_02)....


please download the drivers for that webcam and it will start working some devices are pre-installed and thats the reason you don't have to install them by installing the new drivers your web cam will start working fine.

Before you can use your webcam in any chat program you have to configure it to that program

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.(webcam not found or webcam in use elsewhere error messages)
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

Device not Available?


I would suggest, that the camera driver may have duplicate instances for some reason, so remove cam, uninstall the software and start again to see if this cures the problem. Also try using a different usb port.
