Just un-install it by going to control panel and then re-install it and hence you won't such problems.

Go to control panel-device admin-video/camera devices.
If no camera listed, then the camera is not working anymore, needs replacing, if listed but with an exclamation sign, try updating the cam driver.

Hope this helps.

Dont know how to turn on the web cam or where to find the controls


Most laptops from major manufacturers (HP, Compaq, Sony, Asus, Acer, Dell, Samsung, etc) that come with web cameras will usually have software to control them.
The cameras are off by default unless a program is accessing them. You can use programs like Skype or video / picture capture software or the webcam control software to access the images. You can also use websites like youtube (you need an account, but select upload video, then live web cam) to test the camera.
The web cam software can be found by searching for "cam" usually, but is often in the folder of the manufacturer's name in the start menu. This will have about all the controls there really is for the web camera. Most just come with some novelty filters to change colors or add "artistic" effects to the video / pictures.
Hope this was helpful. Please leave feedback.

You can use web cam Drivers CD to restore the cam drivers. In case you dont have the drivers CD, you may download the drivers from the internet. Restoring/ downloading the web cam drivers depends upon the make/ model of web cam and the Operating System you have on your PC. Let me know the make/ model and Operating System Detail and I'll try to search for the drivers.
Secondly, almost any good quality USB cam compatible with you Operating System (e.g. Windows XP) can be used.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!

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

Web cam use with skype


if you are using the usb web cam. Then you can insert into the usb port on your laptop. But before you insert the usb cable first install the web camera driver software . Then insert the web camera usb cable into the usb port and go to the web camera software and check the display which you can see the face . After that we can go the skype online and go to the file menu then press chat with your friend as you know .If you dont have any driver software with you then you can download the software through the internet.
