If the webcam is not working then at first we need to check whether its an issue with the webcam driver or the Medismart Software.

1>Click on Start and in start search type devmgmt.msc and then hit enter.
2>It would open the device manager window,Now locate an option which reads as Imaging devices.
3>There would be a + sign next to it, click on it and then right click on the driver which comes below the same..
4>If you don't find Imaging devices in the device manager page then,
5>Click on Start, in start search type appwiz.cpl and then hit enter.
6>This would bring up the Programs and features window.
7>Now locate the HP mediasmart webcam software, right click on it and then click on uninstall.
8>You can reinstall the same back from the link mentioned below.
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp48001-48500/sp48236.exe

Restart the computer after uninstallation and reinstallation of the software.

Hope it Works.
Regards
Ken

Where can I find the drivers for the HP truevision Web cam in my HP Pavilion dv7-4117ez


To use the webcam you need the HP MediaSmart Webcam Software installed.
If it is not functioning well anymore, re-install it. In most cases the installed HP
software packages are saved in the C:\SWSETUP folder on your harddisk.

Check the version of the installed HP MediaSmart Webcam Software, and if you
need it you can find v3.0 here:

I recently just bought a new laptop (compaq presario cq56) it has a webcam and all but its says please turn on the webcam, how do i turn on the camera?


This document pertains to HP Notebook PCs with Windows 7 . A webcam is built into the frame above the display screen on some HP notebooks. Since there is no power button or desktop icon for the webcam, the only way to test and use the webcam is to open a webcam application. Many of the applications used in Vista, such as CyberLink YouCam and QuickPlay, are incompatible with Windows 7. However, HP offers the MediaSmart suite for Windows 7 which includes a webcam application. HP MediaSmart Webcam can record videos, take snapshot photos, add text and animations to the image, track your movements with an avatar, and allow you to adjust the settings of the webcam. Many people use their webcam in a video chat. You can use HP MediaSmart Webcam with most third party video chat programs. To learn more, see HP Notebook PCs - How to Set Up the HP Webcam in Your Favorite Messenger for Windows 7 .

I can't open HP MediaSmart Webcam


w2558hc
what PC?
what OS? stated,
nobody can help you , unless the whole system is stated,
in details.
guess :1:
it wont work as supposed to because you have added other non HP software related to CAM, and they are in conflict.
remove that conflicting software
or do a HP OS refresh. using HP restore.
