If you're using it in webchat and other programs, they'll be able to detect it themselves. I have a built in webcam on my laptop too and I can't seem to access it unless I go through Photoshop or MSN messenger.

Hope this helps

Cam is locked by another application


Its not unusual for webcam software to remain hooked up to a previous program even if you have exited that program correctly.
Before opening your chat program unplug the cam from the USB port for a couple of seconds to re-boot the webcam software.
If its built-in you will have to re-start the computer - use a keyboard shortcut or disable/enable the cam from the Imaging Folder in the Device Manager.
Check the camera source as well - you may have other imaging software loaded that can cause conflicts

Hp web cam


Normally, If you are running Windows XP, the Built-In Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) maybe enable without your knowledge. This is the default setting of Windows to protect your PC from hacking. However, of course, this default setting may block you from running some applications you might need to use like Viewing WebCam in Yahoo! Messenger. Anyway, there is always a way to solve the problem.

Below are the steps to enable you to veiw WebCam by instructing you to ensure that the correct ports are opened.

1. Click Start, Settings, and select Control Panel.
2. Double click on the Network Connections icon.
3. Right click the connection that you use to connect to the Internet, and then click on Properties.
4. On the Advanced tab, uncheck the box Protect my computer… if you would like to disable the firewall. If you like to only open the webcam ports, check the box and continue with the remaining steps.
5. Click the Settings button.
6. Click the Add button.
7. Under Description… fill in Yahoo! Webcam. Under Name or IP… fill in 127.0.0.1. Under both External Port and Internal Port fill in 5100. Check the button TCP.
8. Click OK to close all opened dialog boxes.
Work done! I guess now You can view webcam in Yahoo! Messenger

That will resolve the issue.

However, if the issue persists, you can try below thing. By disabeling and enabling the webcam feature.



Disabling Webcam application:
Disabling Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service will disable the webcam.

1. Click Start, and select Run.
2. In the Open box, type SERVICES.MSC
3. Press Enter on the keyboard. Services box will pop up.
4. In the Services window, scroll down to Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service. 5. Right-click "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)" and select Properties.
6. In the General tab, under Service status, click the "Stop" button.
7. Click Apply and OK.
8. Restart the notebook. This will disable the webcam on the notebook

Enabling the web cam application :

1. Click Start, and select Run.
2. In the Open box, type SERVICES.MSC
3. Press Enter on the keyboard. Services box will pop up.
4. In the Services window, scroll down to Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service. 5. Right-click "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)" and select Properties.
6. In the General tab, under Service status, click the "Start" button.
7. Click Apply and OK.
8. Restart the notebook. This will enable the webcam on the notebook.

That will resolve the issue.

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
