How can I get my webcam working on HP laptop


if you have driver no problem IF not go webside HP download web cam driver >model no

1. Downloaded the file.
2. Unzipped it to a folder on my desktop.
3. Ran the "Setup.exe" file in the folder that got unzipped.
4. Went through the installer until it got to the end and then let it restart my computer.
5. Waited for my computer to restart.
6. It popped up something saying it was installing the drivers for my webcam. Waited until it was done.
7. Opened the Control Panel.
8. Opened the Device Manager.
9. Find my webcam under "Imaging Devices". I noticed it was listed as "HP Pavilion Webcam" despite having just installed the Acer drivers.
10. Right-clicked on my webcam and chose "Update Driver Software..."
11. Chose "Browse my computer for driver software"
12. Chose "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
13. Unchecked the "Show compatible hardware" checkbox.
14. Scrolled down to the Chicony manufacturer.
15. Chose the "Acer Crystal Eye webcam.
16. Told it to install anyway when it asked me a question about installing that driver.
17. Waited for the driver to be installed.
18. Noted that my webcam was now listed as an Acer Crystal Eye webcam in Device Manager.

And that was it. It appears to work totally fine now! Again, I have my fingers crossed that it won't suddenly break again, but so far so good.

Forgot to note: This is on a DV6000T running Windows Vista 32-Bit Home Premium.

I have a youcam entregated webcam but i can not get it turned on? It was working fine when i purscahes my computer but it got shut off somehow?


Hi,

To fix the issue uninstall the you cam software from the computer and reinstall it again. You can unsinstall Youcam from the Programs and features in control panel.

If you are using Windows Vista in the computer, you can download and install the Cyberlink webcam software from the following link:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp42501-43000/sp42568.exe

After installing the Youcam software you will get the webcam shortcut on the desktop.

Using youcam:

I can't install my logitech pro9000


Remove the driver from device manager and uninstall the software. I would also check in the registry for any files and delete them. Then reboot and try to install again. Make sure not to plug in the webcam until the software prompts you to.

Vx-7000 webcam will not connect on msn messenger


Hi iainrusk,
what operating system are you using (following Microsoft, this webcam will work with Windows Vista™ or Windows® XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2) only)? Are you using one of them?
If yes, please disconnect the camera from your computer, open the device manager of your computer and maximize that window. Now connect the camera to the computer (preferably to one the the USB-ports of the computer, not to a USB-hub!) and watch what is going on at the device manager. Normally the cam should be installed without problems and then you can see the respective entry under "Audio, Video and Gamecontroller". If not, the entry "Unknown device" should appear within the "USB-controller" section. In case this is happening, you should disconnect the cam. install the software which came with the cam and - after you did so - reconnect the cam again. Now everything should work fine...
If not, please come back here and let us know!
Good luck and greetings from Germany,

No sound


You will have to set the logitech webcam up to the medium you are using yahoo...msn. This is done after the software is installed.I don't use yahoo but on msn open it up then go to tools on the msn page at the top above all your contacts.Open the tools and go to webcam setup,click on it and follow the steps.This will get the mic working.It took me awhile to realize you had to do it twice once for the software setup and again to set it up to mate to MSN.
