If you go the the HP website and under the support tab click download the latest software and drivers, you should be able to search for your computer model. there you will find the drivers for your computer, look for the webcam driver, download and install them and it should be working fine.

SOURCE: built in webcam wont turn on

Check the Device Manager - Sound, video and game controllers
Is you WEB cam device listed?
If not the driver for the WEB cam was not installed and needs to be installed.
If it is listed, is the device working and enabled? If not then the driver needs to be installed again.

I have a compaq and the model is the Presario CQ56. this model is equppied with a webcam. i went on youcam and it said that it cannot detect my webcam and i need to plug one it. i dont understand why it...


Sounds like the camera was accidently disabled to fix this simply push the Function key which is marked Fn in the bottom left of your keyboard while at the same time push the key that is just above the number 3 key looks like an image of a camera. See if that works out for you.

How to use webcam for my hp compaq CQ40


Since you did not give the specification of your laptop, I assume it came in with built-in webcam. First go to start and browse through All Programs for YouCam. If it is there, launch the program. If you do not have it on your program list, go to

www.cyberlink.com/products/youcam/overview_en_US.html

and download either the trial or the full version of the webcam software YouCam and install on your laptop. This should be able to activate your webcam.

Webcam for Presario C700 not working


Hi v_tahseen,

There is a couple reasons this could happen.
1. You might have another program that's using the camera and it is conflicting.
2. The software is not turning on the camera in which point try to turn it on manually.
Just for the heck of it try to use the camera without the youcam software if it still don't work.
Then uninstall youcam and see if it works.
Sometimes software is not compatible with all computers and it does some funky things.

Youcam 1.0


Here you go; http://download.cyberlink.com/ftpdload/trial/CyberLink.1023_generic_YUC071008-01.exe Bear in mind, the download is 46MB I'm rather curious however, as the only Youcam I could find (Cyberlink), is a program, rather than an actual webcam. Are you sure the webcams model is a Youcam? or did you infact mean the program? If you did mean the webcam, you can find the drivers for your laptops webcam on the HP website; http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/pfinder?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=uk&query=presario%20700&dest_page=softwareCategory&tool=softwareCategory

Webcam


Vista does not have a stand-alone feature for Compaq Presario c700 webcam. You need to have another application to use the webcam. Fortunately, I found an application, YouCam, that allows you to take snapshots (and even videos) using the built-in webcam of the laptop.
