Re: reinstall web cam
Just go to the company's website that made your web cam and download a new driver(the program that makes your webcam work with your computer). You can usually download this program free of charge straight to your computer. My suggestion to you would be to also save this download to a disk so that you will have the disk once again and can use your webcam on other computers, good luck!
Make sure you get the exact download for you webcam i.e. model no. and so on because if you don't your webcam may not work properly.

did you look in device manager , what OS windoz 7? see the devices, see web cam? if not unplug the device that has said web cam, the monitor? the replugging re awakens the web cam, usb cam. and must show up in device manager, and also in run box. type devices. and click that. see all the devices there, no matter what , you will need to force and update on the device. ever do that before? if the device web cam shows up in device manager. you right click it and do update driver. that is it, but you must be connected to the web or all is lost.
connect internet then right click on my computer then click on properties then click on device maneger then right click on monitor then click on properties then select drivers and click on update driver it will automatically install the driver by searching web
first install the driver software plug the usb to your pc... then after that goto device manager click the (!) right click it goto properties and auto detect driver the pc will find the dll of you webcam then when he finds there were pop-up window you see if you see the highlight choose by your pc just click next it is only done. then you will not see again the (!). ok just follow my instruction
This problem is *NOT* related to the 'HP VS17' monitor.
Instead, find the "original" Windows CD-ROM that came with your computer, and reinstall Windows from that media, rather than reinstalling from some other copy of Windows.
The "original" CD-ROM will have the correct audio-device drivers.
If you need, contact the manufacturer of your computer, and order a replacement "System Recovery" set of CD-ROM disks.
Or, find the web-site for the manufacturer of your computer, and enter your series (e.g., "Optiplex" or "Dimension") and model-number, and search for downloadable device-drivers for your "audio" device.
You would have got a CD with this moniter..
we ahve install that cd..
and its better to check the cables first which would be the
VGA CORD that is blue in colour which connects your moniter with the tower.
We can check the connections with the moniter for the Tower and then install the cd.
Sounds like the web cam software may have changed a .dll or some other system file that the video chip is using. I would try uninstalling any software from the cam and removing and reinstalling the video drivers.
Have your windows CD or the CD that came with the PC handy we might need it.
Open Device Manager
Control Panel > System > (or hit Windows key + Break key) and if you're using XP switch to the Hardware tab and click Device Manager.
Double click Display Adapters. Right click the video adapter listed
and click Uninstall.
Click yes you're sure to whatever warning message comes up.
Now reboot your PC. Windows should auto-detect the video and re-install the correct drivers.
There IS a possibility that the first re-install could use the same bad files...so if while re-installing you DON'T get asked for the windows CD and you still have the problem after rebooting, go to the manufacturers web site and download the drivers for your system and force windows to install those files.
If you don't know how and it comes down to needing to try that let me know I'll walk you through.
