Why dont the webcam wanna work on my compaq presario cq62


Most HP laptops come equipped with a built-in webcam. However, many casual users have difficulty accessing the webcam. Whether, you have deleted the HP Webcam icon from your Desktop, or you are a first time user, there is an easy way of accessing the Webcam. The only requirement is that you have the HP QuickPlay software and latest driver for the webcam installed on your computer.

Download the latest driver for the Webcam:

1. Go to the HP Support and Drivers website for the most update-to-date HP Drivers. Enter laptop's model number, which can be found on the front of the laptop screen as well as the product sticker on the bottom. Choose the exact model from the list that shows up. Then select your operating system. Download the webcam driver from the list of available driver and software programs. Install the driver and reboot the computer at the end of the installation process.

2. Launch the HP QuickPlay application. Almost all HP laptops have the program pre-installed, but if for some reason you don't have the program, it can be downloaded from the HP website (link provided in Resources section).

3. Click on the "Music Videos Pictures" icon in HP Quickplay. HP Webcam will be available among the list of devices. Click on the HP Webcam button to turn it on(you will see a light next to webcam lens and an image will show up on the screen).

4. Double-click the active webcam image to enlarge it to full-screen.

5. Scroll down to the lower left corner of the screen and click on the "Snapshot Image" icon to take a picture. Click the "Record" icon to record a video.

6. Click the "Info/More Settings" icon denoted with a lowercase "i" to change settings such as the aspect ratio (4:3 or 16:9), or recording quality.

7. Use adequate lighting for the webcam considering its limited image quality and low light capabilities.

8. Now that you have installed the driver for the webcam, most 3rd party programs should also be able to detect and access the webcam. It can even be used it with messenger applications for video chatting/conferencing.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

    You use, Quickplay, To access QuickPlay, just press the "blue QuickPlay button" next to the power button. If it doesn't load QuickPlay, just do "Start" - "All Programs" - then you will see QuickPlay listed there. If you still can't find it just do a search, you will find the short-cut.

    Once launched QuickPlay, click on the 2nd icon from left (between DVD and TV icon), then double-click on "HP Pavilion WebCam" from the left side panel, then you will see the blue LED light lit and you should see yourself on the screen. (Double-click "yourself" to enlarge image)

    To take a picture or record video, just press the corresponding buttons on the top. (the red circle icon is for recording video (press "Stop" icon to stop recording), the camera icon is for, well, camera)
    Videos and pictures are saved at:
    Pictures -- C:\Users\Public\Pictures\My Snapshots
    Videos -- C:\Users\Public\Videos\HP Webcam

    Just go to:

    C:\Program Files\HP\QuickPlay

    and see if you have QuickPlay installed or not.

    If yes, then double click on "QP.exe", and that should bring up QuickPlay. And later you can make a shortcut to it.

    First is a good sign that if you click the Icon form the webcam software, and you see your picture. This indicates that the webcam drivers were installed correctly.

    You will need a software that support the webcam to be able to use it. You can Try Skype (http://www.skype.com/), or MSN Messenger (http://im.live.com/).

    Those programs will detect your webcam and will enable video chat, that way you can use your cam to communicate with others.

    Hope this helps..

    Webcam


    Vista does not have a stand-alone feature for Compaq Presario c700 webcam. You need to have another application to use the webcam. Fortunately, I found an application, YouCam, that allows you to take snapshots (and even videos) using the built-in webcam of the laptop.
