hi susan...( by the way my surname is Morris to lol ) anyhow...well you are right, web cams on laptops are no way near as good as the external ones and also with laptops they are not as good at handling web related images as well as home pc's, i think the best solution would be to purchase an external web cam and use that, if i may sugest a nice web cam that i personally use on my laptop when i am away it the logitech web-cam 250, this is an excellent web-cam to use for laptops and are very cheap to purchase....hope this helps happy new year

I have a built in web cam in my lap top but I don't know how to turn it on


You need to download a program that utilises webcams like yahoo for example and then go to drop down menu and start webcam. Otherwise you should have software installed on your laptop for example AMCAP which will let you see what images are being captured and if it is working.

The WEB cam (camera) is normally a USB device, it can send and capture video images as well as still images. You can talk and see people over the Internet with a WEB cam.
You need to install WEBcam software for that particular model WEBcam on your computer and configure it to run with Skype, or any other VOIP (voice over IP) software. The WEBcam software will allow you to create a video (movie) and take still photos, it will allow you to store these images on your computer.

Cant turn my built in webcam on??


Hi,

This is known Webcam issue in DV6000 notebooks. To resolve or narrow down the issue, we have to check few things.

First open Device Manager.

Please follow these steps to open Device Manager:

1. Right Click on 'My Computer' icon on Desktop and choose Properties.
2. The System properties Window opens.
3. Click Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button.

Expand + Imagining Devices and check if the HP Webcam is listed under it.

If Webcam is not listed there, then you have to contact HP to get the BIOS update.

If it is listed there, right click on it and select Disable. Again right click on it and select Enable.

Now open any applications like Quickplay and check if Webcam is working or not.

Please reply me if that won't resolve the issue, I can provide more work arounds
