Hello

I understand that your Notebook webcam is not working.

To isolate the issue please test webcam in quick play. If it do not work and shows black screen. Please perform the following steps.

Click start and in the start search box type Device Manager and press enter. Then click on + sign next to imaging devices and right click on HP Webcam and select disable. If it prompts you to restart the Notebook . Then restart the Notebook and check whether Webcam is working. If it wont prompt to restart the notebook then right click on the HP webcam again and enable it.

Then check whether the webcam is working.

When prompted to restart the Notebook after disabling the webcam . Even after restarting if webcam doesn't work. Then install the Webcam drivers from the following weblink.

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35001-35500/sp35414.exe

Please do not click on the link. Copy and paste it in a new Internet Explorer window.

After installing the webcam drivers restart the Notebook to get the changes effect.

I hope this will resolve the issue.

Thanks

Tell me how to activate the camera ,because i can see people am talking to,but they cant see me,this is what they tell me.


Hi,

I am presenting below solution by keeping in mind that the webcam software is installed on your laptop.

Compaq laptops come with QuickPlay features that allow you to conveniently access your built-in webcam. Use the QuickPlay software to activate the webcam in your Compaq laptop and record videos and photos right onto your hard drive. The software is straightforward and simple to understand for both novice and experienced computer users.
Step 1 Click the "Start" icon and type "quickplay" into the search field. Click the "QuickPlay" entry that appears in the results. Alternately, press the "QuickPlay" button located near the laptop's display.
Step 2 Click the "Video" icon in the QuickPlay interface that opens, then double-click the "HP Webcam" option in the "Source" window. The image from your webcam appears on the screen.

Do post if you still find problems in accessing the webcam.

Thanks,
Amar

I have a problem in using my webcam,its indicated that i need to turn it on.


You need a program like QuickPlay or Muvee Autoproducer to activate the webcam. When in Quickplay, go to the bottom of the screen, select the icon with a camera, and then choose the device from the left-hand menu.

Press the QuickPlay button (normally located near the display) on the notebook PC to open the QuickPlay application.

Alternately, click Start , type QuickPlay in the search field, and select QuickPlay when it becomes available to open the QuickPlay application.

Click the Video icon, and double-click HP webcam in the Source column.

The input from the webcam displays on the screen

How should i turn on webcam


There No Button as such to turn on webcam on the notebook but if would like to use it then you have to use the default application like quickplay provided by HP to use and record video using the webcam

and also you can use third party messenger like yahoo, MSN, Skype etc

Note : if the webcam is not working in these applications then make sure the drivers are installed correctly and also try updating it if required and still unable to use webcam then you need to contact manufacturer

How to get my webcam works


  1. Press the QuickPlayc00865937.jpg button (normally located near the display) on the notebook PC to open the QuickPlay application. NOTE: If this takes you to DVDPlay instead of QuickPlay, then you are probably not using an HP Pavilion notebook and you do not have QuickPlay installed. You should skip this test and go to Test the webcam using YouCam instead. Alternately, click Startc00814574.gif , type QuickPlay in the search field, and select QuickPlay when it becomes available to open the QuickPlay application.
  2. Click c00865938.jpg icon, and double-click HP webcam in the Source column. The input from the webcam displays on the screen.
  3. Click Record in the QuickPlay window to record a short webcam file, and then press Stop .
    • By default, the file is saved in a public folder, and the date is used as the name of the video file. For example: C:\Users\Public\Videos\HP Webcam\webcam_20070228_1540.mpg .
    • The saved file can be renamed and moved for use by QuickPlay or other media programs.
  4. Double-click the name of the file in the playlist in the QuickPlay window to view the short Webcam file.
  5. If you can view this file, this concludes this test. You should now test with YouCam.
If you have a third-part webcam, see HP Notebook PCs - Testing a Webcam in Vista with QuickPlay for additional information. Test the webcam using YouCam To verify that the webcam on an HP or Compaq computer that shipped with Microsoft Vista with Service Pack 1 installed is operating properly, perform the following YouCam test. This test verifies that the Webcam is working and can record or play video files.
  1. Click Startc00814574.gif , type you in the search field, and select Cyberlink YouCam from the resulting list. After a few seconds the program starts and the webcam image should be visible in the main viewing window.
  2. Click c01475672.jpg in the main control bar to record a short webcam file, and then press Stop .
    • By default, the file is saved in the Documents folder, in a subfolder named YouCam, with a generic name based on the date. For example: Capture_20080327.wmv
    • To navigate to this folder, click Startc00814574.gif , Computer , and then select Documents under Favorites, and then open the YouCam folder.
    • The saved file can be renamed and moved for use by YouCam or other media programs.
  3. Double-click the name of the file in the playlist in the YouCam window to view the short webcam file.
  4. This test verifies that the webcam is working and can record or play video files.

I hope this helps you, I don't have the same operating system. You can find all the information you are looking for at http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01560721&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3795310&lang=en#N565
