The inbuilt webcam of my laptop dv6365ud is not working, after checking in device manager i understand the Imaging devices is not at all mentioned anywhere in the complete list.
I tried the following:
- Adding webcam from control panel from scanners and cameras where i installed xerox after which i can see Imaging devices in device manager but under it only xerox is mentioned.
-went to hp.com from there i updated my pc which is vista home premium 32 bit and downloaded drivers and tried running them but still problem exist.
- Quickplay also doesnt show up so i test webcam in muvee auto producer.
-Tried installing drivers for webcam.
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.

Hi Pls go to Device Manager and expand Imaging Devices. Check if your webcam is detected under Imaging Devices. If it is not listed under Imaging Devices, Then check if there is any other category 'Other Devices'. If you find the webcam under Other Devices, uninstall the webcam and restart, the computer. If that doesnt work, then you can try a System Restore or else format the computer. If you dont find the webcam anywhere in the Device Manager, then there is a hardware failure with the webcam.
Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there if you are have trouble with your webcam Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark? right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7 http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hourshttp://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8 It might take some time being a freeware driver solution note: it will find all of your outdated drivers this is a free driver solutions This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktimesoftware are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c- Windows Vista: DirectX 10). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer Hope this helps.

Open the control panel on the start menu and click hardware and sound, choose devices and printers and see if the webcam shows up there. If it does right click and click troubleshoot. Windows will scan the device for errors. If the device is not visible in the device manager, then you need to install a driver for it. If you let me know the model of your PC I may be able to point you to the right place to download a new driver or you can try the Advent support website.
this isn't a webcam, it's an ambient light sensor, I'm afraid. Just to make sure: assuming that you're running a Windows-system, please open the device manager and have a look at "Audio, Video..." whether there is an entry regarding a webcam. I'm pretty sure, there isn't one...
