My hp mini web camera does not work

HP 2133 is a mini-computer (netbook) that comes with a built-in webcam you can use to take photos, record videos or video chat in messaging programs such as Skype or Yahoo Messenger. The built-in webcam generally fails to work if the driver is corrupt or damaged. Repair the webcam quickly and safely by reinstalling the driver from the HP website.

Restart your computer to reset the webcam driver. Go to the HP Support page (see Link Below). - 7831 Click the "Download" button next to "HP Webcam" to download the webcam driver. When prompted, click "Save" and save the driver installation file to your desktop. Double-click the webcam installation driver and click "Run" to launch the installation wizard. Follow the guided prompts on the wizard to complete the installation. Restart your computer. Launch your messenger, media or photo application and test the webcam.

I have an HP Laptop with built in webcam do I use i

Make sure you have the driver installed for it (you should be able to see it under Device Manager (right click on 'My Computer' -> 'Properties' choose then choose the 'Hardware' tab and click on 'Device Manager'). If you can't see it then then visit the HP support website and download the drivers for your particular laptop model and operating system (XP, Vist or Win7). The drivers should also install a program for configuring and viewing the picture from your webcam.

You can also check from the Windows Messenger program. Th?s allows video chat so if you go to the options in Messenger and configure 'Video and Mic' then if Video cannot be configured you do not have the driver installed.

Sorry if it's not wholly clear as I'm at work and don't have access to a webcam and messenger to properly give you full instructions but I hope you get the idea.

When i try to use my webcam on skype, it comes up being used on another application, the cam is built in to my hp pavillion dv9000, how do you get it off and on to skype?

Sometimes the webcam software can 'hang on' to another program if you have been using it elsewhere. Even if you you have exited that program correctly it can still happen.
With my webcam I can reboot it by unplugging it from the USB and plugging it back in after a few seconds.
As yours is built-in you will have to reboot the whole computer, use a keyboard shortcut, (if the machine has one) or 'disable' and then 'enable' the webcam from the Device Manager.

Built in Web Camera for HP Pavillion DV9000

Normal 0 Install the software with the camera disconnected from the USB port and install the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.

Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

First, be sure to have the latest software from logitech's website, and the latest MSN.

Then perform the following:

Execute the audio and video setup procedure within MSN Messenger 7.5. This procedure will allow you to assign an audio input and audio output device, as well as assign the video device of your choice to work with MSN Messenger.
1. Launch MSN Messenger and select the “Audio and Vide Setup” option from the “Tools” menu.
Figure 1

2. Click “Next to begin the setup process
Figure 2

3. In the “Speaker Setup” window, select the output device you would like to use with MSN Messenger. This step is specific to speakers or headphones. If your speakers or headphone device is connected to your computer, select the device by using the drop down menu provided. You can also set the desired volume level and click “Play Sound” for an audio sample. Once you are comfortable with the your selected options, Click “Next”
Figure 3

4. In the “Microphone Setup” window, select your desired input device from the drop down menu provided. This selection will be specific to a microphone connected to your computer. If your Logitech video camera has a built-in microphone, this option will be presented as “Logitech Mic” with your camera model name in parentheses as shown below. If you have an external headset device connected to your computer which hosts a microphone, select the devices name or model number in the drop down menu. Once your device is selected, adjust the microphone volume level to your preference and click next.
Note: the microphone volume level may need to be tested in order to find a comfortable listening level for you contacts. As a starting point, try setting the level midway and adjust when necessary by re-executing this procedure.
Figure 4

5. In the “Webcam Setup” window, select the video device you would like to use with MSN Messenger. Once selected you should see a display sample in the window provided. You can also click the “Options” button to make camera specific adjustments. Once completed, click the “Finish” button to apply your changes.
Figure 5
6. Once you have completed this process, MSN Messenger should now know the audio input (microphone) audio output (speakers or headphones) and video device (webcam) to use when engaging in an audio and or video conversation.
