I'm willing to help you out here, I just need to know if you have Vista or XP? This seems to be a driver related issue? unless you have like dropped it? that may have corrupt something inside. Else than that i really think its a driver issue or a glitch maybe HP have identified and released in their latest drivers. In the mean time, here is a link to the Webcam drivers off HP's site:



These are both for 32Bit OS's.
Here is the link to the page with ALL of your laptops drivers, simply select the OS (operating system) and away you go. The links above are just for the webcam.

Just to finish, ALL of these are straight off the HP website. Under software and support.

Please stay posted and tell me how this has gone. Thanks!

Have you tried examining the list of hardware to see if it has been recognised?

If it's missing, the device may have failed.

If it's visible, there may be a driver problem. Try removing the device from device manager and redetecting it (easy way is to reboot the PC).

How do I turn on my internal Webcam?

there may be chances of ur internal web cm may get problem but before before that u can also try this. This may solve ur problems

go to
Start - Control Panel - Classic view - Administrative tools - Computer Management - Device Manager
and look to see if it shows up on the right, if you see "unknown devices" regarding ur webcam and it's not showing, guess doesn't recogize it.
So, simply go download the driver for it (find it on google or on motherboard site), then go to device manager, and uninstall the device, or simply restart the computer, and it should auto attempt to install it. :) install the drivers properly and u will find it working.

if not solved then problem with ur camera if u want to download drivers than pls follow the foolowing steps

1. you can get your drivers .
just go to ur webcam manufacturing site, click on download section click on drivers, enter its model number and download the camera drivers .
2. If you don't know the webcam drivers cd then connect to internet, uninstall all the old webcam drivers if any. then when pop up window says that new hard driver is found then click it and it will automatically install drivers from net

3. If you want to know about your webcam drivers, then go to desktop
a. right click on my_computer,

b.then select properties, in properties tab click on the HARDWARE tab,

c.then click on the device manager tab, then select and expand the drivers like sound or video which you want to know.

d. right click on the selected sound or display drivers and select its properties.

e. select driver tab and the driver name and version will be before you

for further assistance pls call me:- Thanks & Regard

Using new Satallite P200-1EE, webcam is not connected message with Yahoo Messenger

I'm using a Toshiba satellite notebook A200, which I faced the same problem like you saying my built- in webcam cannot operate after I clicked on the drop down list from the windows live messenger to have a webcam conversation. Another program is running the webcam at startup. That program is called Camera Assistant Software which is the conflicting software. Therefore I closed this software and I'm able to use my webcam again in my webcam conversation in windows live messenger. I hope this information will help you.Good Luck!
