Try copying the link and paste it in the address bar of a new Internet Explorer window and press Enter to open....
By the way I had already checked the links before providing.
If you are unable to do so, I will provide you the terms which you need to enter in HP.com website and open the required links as per the instructions I had provide above:
HP Webcam Drivers/Preview window: sp35414.exe
Reinstalling Quick Play using Recovery Manager : c00834921
Downloading Cyberlink YouCam applicationsp39372.exe
Using Cyberlink YouCam application : c01414839
Knowing more about Cyberlink YouCam application : c01415015
Hope this helps...

If your Notebook is installed with Vista, there is no option to start the Webcam directly without using any application.
However, you can try using the HP Webcam drivers which are for XP with which you will get a Preview window to use the webcam without using any application like Messengers etc..:
Download the above mentioned driver from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35001-35500/sp35414.exe

Save the file in the Notebook and double click once the file is saved to install the drivers.
However, if you are unable to access the webcam using Quickplay application, I recommend you to try reinstalling the application by following the instructions below if the Recovery Partition is available and you are able to use the Recovery Manager application :
Click on Start and then on Control Panel in the window that appears, click on Classic View in the left pane.
Now, among the icons that are displayed, double click on Programs and Features icon and among the list that is displayed, click on HP Quickplay and click on Uninstall button on the top.
Now, follow the instructions available in the link below to reinstall Quickplay using Recovery Manager :

You can also try downloading Cyberlink YouCam application which is provided for all latest Notebooks to access Webcam from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp39001-39500/sp39372.exe

Save the file into the Notebook and double click the file to install the application.
You can find the required instructions to use Cyberlink YouCam application to access the webcam of your notebook from the link below :
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01414839&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

Additionally, you can find the details about YouCam application from the link below :

Hi happeewander...
You will need to have Yahoo messenger,MSN messenger, Net Meeting, or some other program installed that has a webcam service to it in order to use the webcam to transmit.
Once you have one of the programs installed, then you will open that program and you will see something that says webcam, or something similar..

How should i turn on webcam


There No Button as such to turn on webcam on the notebook but if would like to use it then you have to use the default application like quickplay provided by HP to use and record video using the webcam

and also you can use third party messenger like yahoo, MSN, Skype etc

Note : if the webcam is not working in these applications then make sure the drivers are installed correctly and also try updating it if required and still unable to use webcam then you need to contact manufacturer

First uninstall the drivers and then download the latest bios update for your notebook from hp.com and then restart the computer.... then install the latest updated drivers for webcam from hp.com and check this will surely work.
If not then check for quickplay driver update too.
Another thing open task manager and then go to processes and check wethere you can find the webcam running or not if yes then right click and end the task , also check for the programs that might use webcam like if you have installed yahoo or skype messenger end the program task too.

I'm not exactly sure what application came with this, but you don't need it to use it in msn messenger or yahoo messenger, etc.

Good luck!

HP dv2000 laptop webcam


i would try to uninstall and reinstall your messenger software. restart after uninstall.

If it still fails, try to download the newest drivers for your webcam.

and also check if your webcam works with another messenging program like skype or msn messenger... your firewall on your PC could be blocking the webcam data stream

it depend on the webcam software if it is available or not

if it is available then you can go to c:\program files\{the webcam program name}

if its not available then it will need a program to use something like (yahoo messenger or msn messenger).

HP WEBCAM DOESN'T WORK WITH INSTANT MESSENGER


Are you using Flash Player on MSN? This sounds like you need to turn on access from the flash player setting menu. This sounds like another issue with the latest update of flash player. Also, you might try 'unchecking' the box for 'use hardware acceleration' in the flash player settings.
