You need to go into the system BIOS, and disable the USB camera in there save the settings and reboot, That will stop, any hardware detection and also any drivers from loading. Now you can add a camera of your choice.
It also would be beneficial to FIRST un-install any and all software to do with the camera, then do the BIOS thing.

Sony vaio tz21wn built in camera not working my operating system windows 7,can u help:}



Once you have your camera, you then have a choice to make; whether to install the software and drivers that comes with the camera or not. A driver is a special piece of software that allows your computer to communicate with the camera. Many of the newer cameras are UVC, (Universal Video Class) compatible. This means the camera can use standard drivers which are built-in to your operating system (Windows, Mac OS, and Linux) and you don't have to install the drivers that come with the camera. However, some features of the camera may not work without the drivers that come with it. Which features work, depends on the camera. For example, some of my auto focuses cameras won't auto focus using the UVC driver, others will. Some cameras have various resolutions that aren't available without installing the drivers that come with it.


Some time it would be work or not. So install your web cam driver is the best way to get all the features.


Thanks

Web cam says to close other video streaming application before it can proceed but there are no applications open that I know of.


try and install the right driver for this device ...that's why it says this ...it sees all wrong ...the issue with windows 7 is that does not have drivers for cameras or elder devices....if it is a built in camera ....just try to get in touch with the manufacturer and see if there is any drivers for the camera ...also ...you can try the driver for vista on 64 ...usually works ..but this is not a rule...
if there is no other chance ..until the driver will appear on the internet ...just get another camera with driver compatible with this operating system ...or roll back to vista or xp ...cause this oS is not that great anyway ...its slow...hard t use...and strange...

I can't get my webcam to activate


Disable the built-in laptop by going into the Device Manager, expanding the Imaging Devices folder, right clicking on the webcam text and hitting 'Disable'
You should now connect and test the HP Cam here

If it broadcasts ok you can configure it to a chat program of your choice. If not I suggest you uninstall the current software and download it again from the HP support website.
