Right-click on my computer, choose properties, hardware, device manager and see if the webcam is displayed anywhere.
If not, you need to go to HP.com and get the webcam software/drivers.
If it is, try downloading skype and seeing if it can power up your webcam. You may be able to do the same with MSN, but the msn webcam software is slow and ****.
You can use it for msn. it is optimised for msn messenger. Click Here on the link and select your product download the software and install. then restart your computer and make sure cam is connected.
it should work!!
Please rate my response!!!
If the webcam works normally otherwise then the problem is compatibility between your webcam and MSN messenger. I'd contact MSN and ask them if/whem they support the webcam or get a cheap generic USB cam that will work.
Okay MSN only support so many camera first you want to check is your camera on there list?
If so check the following:
reinstall operating system if those two does not work.
If the problem is not resolved with the solutions above consider another alternitve camera such as logitech or the lifecame 3000 from microsoft. I am sure there might be something fouled up wit h the messanger or the OS.

as ive told others, make sure u actually turn off the software program that came with the computer before using with msn! u should be able to have it on while using it but for some reason some computers wont allow it! it "tells itself" that there are 2 programs trying to run the web cam when really only one is. but because the program is on, it sees it as being used in 2 places at 2 different times!
try turning off and exiting the software (dell webcam manager) and then go onto msn and try using ur web cam!! make sure the dell manager is exited, then when u have a msn window open, turn the cam on and see if ur friends can see u then..
good luck.. if this doesnt work ill check back and see what i can do for you!
Are you using Flash Player on MSN? This sounds like you need to turn on access from the flash player setting menu. This sounds like another issue with the latest update of flash player. Also, you might try 'unchecking' the box for 'use hardware acceleration' in the flash player settings.
