Ok the problem lies within the software. You may need to update the driver. Yes drivers tell this device added what to do. So log onto HPs website, download the updated version. This should help, if this does not help it then becomes hardware, which is better off leaving alone do to the expense.

How do i turn on my web cam on my new windows 7 compaq laptop?

You use, Quickplay, To access QuickPlay, just press the "blue QuickPlay button" next to the power button. If it doesn't load QuickPlay, just do "Start" - "All Programs" - then you will see QuickPlay listed there. If you still can't find it just do a search, you will find the short-cut.

Once launched QuickPlay, click on the 2nd icon from left (between DVD and TV icon), then double-click on "HP Pavilion WebCam" from the left side panel, then you will see the blue LED light lit and you should see yourself on the screen. (Double-click "yourself" to enlarge image)

To take a picture or record video, just press the corresponding buttons on the top. (the red circle icon is for recording video (press "Stop" icon to stop recording), the camera icon is for, well, camera)
Videos and pictures are saved at:
Pictures -- C:\Users\Public\Pictures\My Snapshots
Videos -- C:\Users\Public\Videos\HP Webcam

Just go to:

C:\Program Files\HP\QuickPlay

and see if you have QuickPlay installed or not.

If yes, then double click on "QP.exe", and that should bring up QuickPlay. And later you can make a shortcut to it.

Quickplay movie clips

You probably simply need the correct "Codecs" you need to find out the Movies extn... ie some are whatevername.MOV or whatevername.WMV etc. Once you know this then you can get the "Codec" that will allow player to work with it. Simply Google for it.

I have an HP DV9000 that I'm having an issue with on power up. When I plug the AC adapter into the laptop I have the blue light on insert so I know the laptop is getting power. When I depress the power on...

Unplug your battery and leave it off for about 10 minutes. depress the power button(with the battery off) to get rid of excess power. reconnect the battery and try again. If no luck, try with power cable only(no battery) if no luck, sounds like a motherboard issue.

Can't run a quick play

Quick play is a funny animal, first go to add and remove programs.
Remove quickplay. Reboot unit.
Next, google quickplay 3.7 and download the program.
Next open the quickplay program and allow it to my a new folder.
After quickplay has finished you will have a updated quickplay 3.7 or better and should run with no problems.
Hope this has helped you.

HP dv9000 won't play Blu ray DVDs

The problem is QuickPlay. Some discs work, but those that didn't, played just fine on my PS3. I had to buy Cyberlink PowerDVD 9 Ultra (10 Ultra also plays Blu Ray), and now, they all play on my HP dv4 laptop. Updates won't matter. Don't use QuickPlay, it's very "fical". Hope this saves you time & frustration. It's not you, it's not your Blu Ray drive, or drivers, it's simply the software/program (QuickPlay) that is the problem.
