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 hours
http://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note: it will find all of your outdated drivers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 Quicktime software 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
If you still have no webcam installed
Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device."
The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed.
Click on the webcam name that shows in the search box and then click "Next."
Choose whether you want Windows to search for the webcam device driver using Windows Update over the Internet, or if you'd prefer to have the device manager search for the driver using a disc supplied by your laptop manufacturer.
Most drivers can be found on the system recovery disc included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the provided disc.
Place a check in the box next to your choice and then click "Next" to continue.
Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows Update, if this was your choice.
An active Internet connection is required for Windows to successfully do this. Allow the computer to install the driver and then reboot the system for the webcam to become recognized by the system.
Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disc or a driver downloaded directly from your laptop manufacturer to install the driver without using the Windows Update search feature.
Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the system recovery disc, or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in an easily accessed file directory on your PC, such as on the desktop, or in your "My Documents" folder.
Choose the option "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" in the "Add a device" application, and press "Next" to begin searching for your webcam driver.
The hardware wizard will search the system recovery disc and install the driver automatically. Press "Finish" to close the wizard and then reboot the computer to allow recognition of the webcam.
Choose the option "Install the software manually" in order to browse to the driver location where you saved the driver and install it from there.
Use the opened file manager and locate the driver.
Click the "Next" button to install the driver, then reboot the computer to add webcam functionality.

How to begin using webcam


On Windows 7 and Windows 8 you can usually just plug in the webcam and wait a few seconds for Windows to automatically install basic/generic "driver" software which allows the webcam to work. You can check if the webcam is recognised and installed by going to Control Panel/Device Manager. In the Device Manager window locate and click on "Imaging Devices" to see your webcam listed. If there's a yellow exclamation point (!) or nothing listed under Imaging Devices then the webcam is not installed. In this case unplug the webcam, wait a few seconds, then plug it back in and see what happens.
With some webcams you must install software and drivers BEFORE you plug the webcam in. In that case, unplug the webcam then install drivers from a CD included with the webcam or download the drivers from the maker's website and install them. Make sure to choose the driver version specified as compatible with your version of Windows. After installing the drivers, restart the computer and wait for it to boot up fully, then plug in the webcam and see if it works.
One last possibility is that your webcam is too old to work with newer Windows versions. For example, we have an old Kodak DVC325 webcam which worked OK in Windows 98, ME, and Windows XP with SP1 and SP2, but it does NOT work in Windows XP with SP3 or any newer Windows version. Too bad, really, because it's a darn good little webcam!

Cam was working now says no webcam detected or not working properly


This could be due to updates on your computer, faulty webcam or driver.

Check the properties in devices in control panel. Troubleshoot to see if the drivers need updating and if the webcam appears as working properly.

Then you can check if the webcam is working on another machine? Does it power up?

Webcam is not operating


Do you know for sure your webcam is working? Have a look at this webcam problem fixing article.

At least check:
- the Device Manager to make sure the webcam drivers are installed
- a different program, like SplitCam, to see if the webcam really works
- your webcam settings in the chat program

Lenovo 3000 v200 XP Restart problem!


Hi Latvia,

It seems that your laptop is holding webcam loading problems. Check whether the webcam driver is compatible for the OS which you use.
You can also try re-installing the webcam driver once again. This should do.

I hope this helps., if so, rate me..

Thanks - billa

Webcam


Hello

I understand that your Notebook webcam is not working.

To isolate the issue please test webcam in quick play. If it do not work and shows black screen. Please perform the following steps.

Click start and in the start search box type Device Manager and press enter. Then click on + sign next to imaging devices and right click on HP Webcam and select disable. If it prompts you to restart the Notebook . Then restart the Notebook and check whether Webcam is working. If it wont prompt to restart the notebook then right click on the HP webcam again and enable it.

Then check whether the webcam is working.

When prompted to restart the Notebook after disabling the webcam . Even after restarting if webcam doesn't work. Then install the Webcam drivers from the following weblink.

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35001-35500/sp35414.exe

Please do not click on the link. Copy and paste it in a new Internet Explorer window.

After installing the webcam drivers restart the Notebook to get the changes effect.

I hope this will resolve the issue.

Thanks
