Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

2 Answers

I have a HP dv9030us on Vista 32bit and my webcam does not work

I have a similar issu as I am running Vista and my web cam just stopped and shows not to be installed. New drivers installed, uninstalled and reinstalled. Camera does not show up in Quickplay, MSN Messenger, Skype. It does show up on the Device Manager Tree under the USB connections. Tried everything to get it to work.

How can i install my webcam driver i lost my driver of windows vista now im windows 7 home basic


It depends on the manufacturer and model-identifier of the webcam?

For example, if you have a HP web-cam, access http://support.hp.com
and do a search, after entering the model-number.
Select the downloadable device-drivers for Windows Vista.

Or, do something similar for a Logitech web-cam -- by accessing Logitech's web-site.

HP Deluxe Webcam w/ Vista Home Premium 32Bit - Has Sound No Video


Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

No luck ? download this diagnostic tool and run it through

http://www.download32.com/webcam-diagnostics-d35065.html

Don't worry about the first alert - I always get that.

Webcams run on support software some on flashplayer some shockwave player and some Activex - so make sure these are in place and up to date - check the support software against the machine the webcam works in.

The USB port you are using needs to be checked out as well

Webcam software is notorious for getting locked on to programs that you have been using - I often have to reboot my software by unplugging the cam for a couple of seconds when changing from Skype to Yahoo for example

If the software in the Imaging folder is not being used you could uninstall it in case you have a conflict.

Have you tried to update the driver from the Device Manager ? expand the folder and click on the webcam text - update driver using internet option.
Please post any feedback that may be useful to other users

If you did not have Vista with the new laptop then you will certainly need to go to HP's site which is very user friendly and download the Vista drivers for that webcam.

I have a similar issue with the webcam of DV6707US


Unplug you cam, reinsert in another usb port, the system should recognize new device, then install it automatically. It may ask for location of drivers, insert cd that came with your cam & direct wizard towards it.
If you need drivers follow this link, is free to register http://www.driverguide.com/
Have a nice day.

Cant turn my built in webcam on??


Hi,

This is known Webcam issue in DV6000 notebooks. To resolve or narrow down the issue, we have to check few things.

First open Device Manager.

Please follow these steps to open Device Manager:

1. Right Click on 'My Computer' icon on Desktop and choose Properties.
2. The System properties Window opens.
3. Click Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button.

Expand + Imagining Devices and check if the HP Webcam is listed under it.

If Webcam is not listed there, then you have to contact HP to get the BIOS update.

If it is listed there, right click on it and select Disable. Again right click on it and select Enable.

Now open any applications like Quickplay and check if Webcam is working or not.

Please reply me if that won't resolve the issue, I can provide more work arounds

Before we trouble shoot this issue let me explain the reason for this issue, HP has released new driver for webcam and the driver update process can’t be done automatically and as long as the old driver exists the webcam does not work, To resolve this issue First we need to uninstall the existing webcam from device manager. Then restart the notebook and install the latest driver to resolve this issue
