Re: hp built-in webcam
Go to add/remove hardware from control panel and try and detect it. Or check your systems Device Manager to see if the the webcam is there and the drive properly installed. Install the correct drive for the webcam and try using the webcam again.

go to all program from START, and then HP media, and you will see the WEB CAM. However if your web cam doesnot appear use the manager recovery HP and install the software for web diagram. Otherwise go to www8.hp.com and donwload the software.God bless you
you have to be in a software that uses the webcam. You can't just turn it on without something using it. Test it out by going to youtube.com and recording a video using their recording function through website.
have a Dell 1545 with Dell web cam central & I've had this issue.
The problem is that Dell web cam central installs it's own microphone
settings onto your laptop called something like Dell web cam Live!. This
isn't the built in microphone in my laptop & maybe not yours
either. You have to change the settings for your computer system &
Dell web cam central. Go to start> control panel> sound>
recording .. on mine there is an option for Microphone "High Definition
Audio Device" ... that is the built in mic. You want that for your
default & apply it. Also .. as a side note .. I disabled the web cam central Live! microphone completely from this window. Then open Dell web cam central & go to the
"Record Video's" option. In the middle of this is an orange button with a
video camera icon. Next to this on the same button is a little arrow
pointing down .. click that. Under microphone .. choose Microphone "High
Definition Audio Device" just like the sound option in control panel.
I've done this & it's completely fixed. I can record videos with
sound & use my built in mic in voice/video chat.
