1. Check if the webcam driver is installed. go to Device Manager, if your computr have Vista/7 you can type "Device Manager" in the start search box in the start menu and click on Device Manager in the results list at the top. If you have XP, right click on the "My Computer" icon then Properties, from the System Properties windows go to the "Hardware" tab then from there click on the Device Manager button.
2. Once Device Manager is open, look for "Imaging Devices" click on the small + sign to expand the view and check if your webcam is listed there, if it doesn't come up or if it does and have a red "X" on it, we will need to reinstall the driver to fix it.
3. Most HP/Compaq notebook computers have a "Recovery" partition. We can reinstall all bundled programs and drivers from there. For Vista/7, type "Recovery Manager" in the search box, for XP look for the Recovery Manager in the Programs Menu.
4. When the Recovery Manager program loads, select "Hardware/Driver Reinstallation". A list of all drivers will be listed, look for the webcam driver. Follow the on screen instructions for installation.
5. When installation finishes, the computer might restart automatically or if it doesn't restart the computer.
Go to the Device Manager, and locate either a question mark, or an "X" mark on one component. Double click on it, another window will come up.
At the bottom change the option for something like: "use this device"...or something like that.
Plug the USB again, and this time let it complete the installation.
Most computers having XP programme don't require usb drivers, because the are already installed. Go to the my computer, click on view system infomation, click on device manager, check in the list for usb. double click on the usb, and a smal window opens, click driver on it, and on the same window click reinstall the drivers. These should work. Thanks
The USB controller driver for Windows XP is a Native XP driver. If you have a problem with it, boot to the safe mode, go to device manager, remove the controller from list, make sure all USB devices are disconnected (Keyboard and Mouse excepted) reboot and let the controller re-detect.
If that doesn't work, then try a repair install of XP
