I want you to physically remove your DVD rom for your unit - locking screw located in the belly area with a sort of clock symbol - under power hit ejest to open the dvd drawer - then with the screw removed & unit powered off gently pull the dvd unit out then power the unit on - you'll most likely find the webcam will be ok. It's called and ECD502 device access error. there is a firmware and bios fix for your unit on the HP.COM website.
