Laptop Inbuilt Webcam Problem (Compaq C791TU)

I have been using Windows Vista for a long time now and my webcam was also working perfectly. I recently installed Ubuntu 8.10 and tried to make my webcam work there by installing a driver. But it seemed to have messed up everything. Now even when I am using Windows Vista, my webcam gives higly saturated pink pictures. The video capture filter option is also messed up. What do I do?

    In my case I didnt install any driver specifically for webcam, but it worked in ubuntu when tried in Skype. But my problem is that video is black and white. Is there a way to configure video outside skype through some other tool? Do I need to install any driver?

Log on to your laptop as an administrator, create a new user account and log on using that new user account and see if you have the same problem. If you have the same problem, uninstall the new driver, which you have installed first and then create a new user account and log on.

Thanks,

Check out the manual on your computer regarding the webcam controls
Sometimes the webcam start procedure can be found under the keyboard heading

Start > Computer >> Local disk (C) >> Documentation >> EN(glish)

Try the Sony Support website for drivers

My webcam for compaq presario c700 is not working


im not sute that im getting this right, do you need graphicdrivers and drivers for your webcam?

Go to HP:s homepage, there you can find all the drivers you need, for your webcam, if it is an Creative one, go here:
http://support.creative.com/Products/Products.aspx?catid=1&catName=Sound+Blaster

If you want to take pictures you will need not only the rdrivers but creativs program too, you will find it if you follow the link too.

Good luck

Compaq c791tu webcam is got getting...in windows vista


If you've recently installed vista, compaq says the webcam will cease to function.
Here's the link to the driver to fix the problem.
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34501-35000/sp34746.exe

To find the driver yourself goto compaq's website and search for Soft pak sp34746.
