Possible that the web cam is not installed properly . so uninstall the webcam from the PC, shut down and restart. now download the driver software from the free download center of HP. once the program is run, connecct the web cam to be detected and installed. check the properties. if this wont open then there can be problems in the webcam- suspected hardware issues. to confirm try the cam with another PC.

The webcam turns on whenever you launch a video chat program or a webcam software program. Debut and Photo Booth are two good programs for taking webcam pictures and videos. You can get the free download links in this article.
Ensure the web cam is secured to your personal computer (PC). Most web cams use a "plug and play" principle. You plug the web cam in; it operates.

Always reboot the computer after installing new software.
