Hi,

Perform the following steps on the notebook:

1. Right click on the webcam entry in the device manager and choose uninstall.

2. While uninstalling select the option to delete the driver software for the device.

3. Restart the notebook and try to use the webcam.

Even if the issue is same then download youcam software from the following link and install it on the notebook. You will get the you cam icon on the desktop and startmenu from where you can access the webcam.

Webcam software:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp37501-38000/sp37849.exe

or

You have to have the program/Application, to launch the web-cam.

Go To The Manufacturers website, to download and Install The Web-Cam Applet.

Or check to see if it,s device/Driver is missing or Corrupt. ( My Computer/Control Panel/System/Device Manager ) Any Yellow Marks ?

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
