No webcam detected laptop

Try re-installing the webcam driver from here:
(Click the "Drivers & Downloads" tab).

If that doesn't fix it, and there are no driver errors showing in Device Manager (ie no question marks or exclamation marks) then it's very likely that the internal webcam has broken and Windows can no longer detect it.

You can buy an external webcam to overcome that problem.

My inbuilt cam is not located and working

Pls go to Device Manager and expand Imaging Devices.
Check if your webcam is detected under Imaging Devices.
If it is not listed under Imaging Devices, Then check if there is any other category 'Other Devices'.
If you find the webcam under Other Devices, uninstall the webcam and restart, the computer.
If that doesnt work, then you can try a System Restore or else format the computer.
If you dont find the webcam anywhere in the Device Manager, then there is a hardware failure with the webcam.

Cannot detect webcam


Thank you for choosing FixYa. I think it would be better to isolate the problem first if its a Hardware or Software. First check the Device Manager if there is any Imaging Device on it. Click on Start->Control Panel->Device Manager. If there is no imaging device try to reinstall the driver for the webcam and if that doesn't work, I suggest try to reinstall the whole Operating System(OS), by reinstalling the OS it will tell if the webcam is detected, if not it means there is a problem with the Hardware.

Hope it helps you somehow.

My notebook is saying i no longer have a webcam what should i do?

ok i want to confirm its not detecting or is it not you the shortcut or icon the nb. what you can do is that you can run " scan for hardware changes" from device manager. Right click on my computer and then choose properties and then choose hardware there you can find device manager. or you can open control panel and then type in search " add hardware". it will automatically detect your webcam and then it will ask you for the driver cd for the application that you must have on your nb when you have purchased the nb or it will preinstalled in your nb.

Dell inspiron's USB ports can't detect webcam

Try a different USB device...see if the PC detects it.
If other devices, like a flash drive run, then your web cam is dead. You can try the web cam on a friends computer to see if it's ok.

If the web cam is good, and no USB devices work in your USB slot, You can check the USB controllers in the "Device manager"

right click "My Computer"
select "Manage"
select "Device Manager"

Click the + sign for "Universal Serial Bus controllers"
Do you have any errors?

I hope this points you in the right direction...Good Luck!

I cant load or start up my HPwebcam that is built in to my laptop

1. Check whether you are able to see the webcam entry in device manager ( under imaging devices)
2. If the device is not detected perform the following:

Step 1 : Disconnect the power cable and external devices form the notebook.
Step 2 :Turn off the notebook.
Step 3 : Now turn the notebook upside down. You will see a latch. Move the latch to the extreme right and left.
Step 4 : Now you please remove the battery .
Step 5 : Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
This will drain out the static electricity from the notebook.
Step 6 : Now connect the Ac Adapter to the notebook (please do not insert the battery), and turn on the notebook

Even if the device is not detected, reinstall the operaitng system.

If the device is detected, uninstall the drivers and reinstall them from recovery manager.

Here is the link where you can get the instructions to reinstall the drivers from recovery manager in vista:

For windows 7:

I hope the issue will be resolved. Good Luck
