Follow the instructions below and it will work.

Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program.

When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the
camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function
properly.


A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) set it up as follows:

1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and
Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
2. Then click on the Video Settings.
3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to
see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

(http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html )

set it up as follows:

1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the
computer Audio Card.
4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call
setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on
top left next to the red X.
2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.”
And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or
friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger

1. On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
2. Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
3. Next click on Enhanced IM.
4. Then click on Audio Video.
5. The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and
video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera

Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window.
If you are currently participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display:
You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM conversation before running setup. Would you
like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers
and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
· The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to
first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button. The Audio and Video Tuning
Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
· images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may
appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.

After you get your camera installed properly, DO NOT unplug it from the USB port as it will
cause the drivers to be corrupt and render the camera unusable till reinstalled it properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

I just bought an HP notebook and I don't know how to hot to 'register' or 'turn on' my webcam.


Your computer may include an integrated webcam, located at the top of the display. The webcam is an input device that allows you to capture and share video. Preinstalled CyberLink YouCam software provides new features that expand the webcam experience.

To use the webcam and CyberLink YouCam software, select Start > All Programs > CyberLink YouCam > CyberLink YouCam.
note.png NOTE: The first time you access the YouCam software, you may experience a brief delay as the software loads.

Using YouCam as your default webcam software enables you to experiment with the following features:
? Video-Record and play back webcam video. You can also e-mail or upload video to YouTube, using the icon on the software interface. ? Streaming video-When you open your instant message program, YouCam displays a floating toolbar that lets you add graphic effects. ? Special effects-Add frames, filters, and emoticons to your snapshots and video. ? Snapshots-Take single frame or "burst" webcam shots in rapid succession. ? Connect-E-mail photos and video using the icon on the software interface. note.png NOTE: For details about using webcam software, refer to the software manufacturer's instructions, which may be provided with the software, on disc, or on the manufacturer's Web site.

If your Notebook is installed with Vista, there is no option to start the Webcam directly without using any application.
However, you can try using the HP Webcam drivers which are for XP with which you will get a Preview window to use the webcam without using any application like Messengers etc..:
Download the above mentioned driver from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35001-35500/sp35414.exe

Save the file in the Notebook and double click once the file is saved to install the drivers.
However, if you are unable to access the webcam using Quickplay application, I recommend you to try reinstalling the application by following the instructions below if the Recovery Partition is available and you are able to use the Recovery Manager application :
Click on Start and then on Control Panel in the window that appears, click on Classic View in the left pane.
Now, among the icons that are displayed, double click on Programs and Features icon and among the list that is displayed, click on HP Quickplay and click on Uninstall button on the top.
Now, follow the instructions available in the link below to reinstall Quickplay using Recovery Manager :
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&docname=c00834921&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

You can also try downloading Cyberlink YouCam application which is provided for all latest Notebooks to access Webcam from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp39001-39500/sp39372.exe

Save the file into the Notebook and double click the file to install the application.
You can find the required instructions to use Cyberlink YouCam application to access the webcam of your notebook from the link below :
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01414839&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

Additionally, you can find the details about YouCam application from the link below :

Hope the information helps...
