    Sorry. Checked the BIOS and reinstalled the Driver and my computer will still not recognize the Webcam. It just disapeared! Would like to get it back even though I only use it on rare occasions.

Dear gentlemen,

Please check BIOS setup if there are choices there to enable or disable built-in webcam devices. Also you need to reinstall the device driver if necessary using the compliment CD driver or installer. Hope this gives you hint.

Best regards,

I have an HP notebook w/ built-in webcam, it doesn't turn on.

If it does not show on the accessories of the start menu, check the Programs and Features of the Control Panel and see if it has not been uninstalled mistakenly. But if it is there, may be it has hidden some where.

But to put everything back in order, you need to do a system restore using the Recovery Manager, so that all the setting on your laptop would go back to its default.

You will find Recovery Manager in All Programs of the Start Menu.

Take care.
