This can be a right pain some times the cam does not load up when you start the computer up only thing you can do is to shut it down and start up again do not restart though it must be shut down If that doesnt work and it doesnt always work you might want to consider getting a usb cam that u can simply plug in

Hi i have hp pavilion dm4-1165dx the web cam not working and i don't know haw can i make it


Hi,

I suggest try to check if the webcam is turned on and also check the device manager if the imaging device is installed, if not there could be a problem on the hardware.

Here's how you can check the webcam.

Start->Control Panel->Device Manager

Under Device Manager look for Imaging Device.

How to download or detect my webcam


1. Connect your web cam
  • Attach all power cords (e.g. laptop and/or web cam).
  • Plug your USB cam directly into your computer (do not use any external USB hubs). Turn your cam on
  • As long as your web cam and computer hardware are working, Windows should detect it!
2. Open Device Manager
  • For Vista
    => Click Control Panel. If you have Control Panel Classic View, click Device Manager
    => Click Control Panel. If you have Control Panel Home View, click System and Maintenance->Device Manager
  • For XP
    => Click Control Panel->System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager button
3. Find your web cam in Device Manager
  • Understanding Device Names
    => Windows provides user-friendly device names to accomodate us humans. As far as Windows is concerned, the device name is simply a comment!
    => It's those cryptic Device Identification strings that really identify a device
    => Device Manager displays whatever device name it happens to find in the device driver
    ...==> If Windows finds NO device driver, your web cam may be named "Unknown" or "Other" device
    ...==> If Windows finds the WRONG device driver you may see your web cam with the WRONG device name
  • How to find your web cam
    => While your web cam is connected, look through all of Device Manager for devices with a yellow icon (probably a yellow question mark)
    => Be certain to expand the USB category to check all devices listed under it. Also, be sure to also check if category Other Devices appears in Device Manager and look under it as well
    => Your web cam will appear as a device with a yellow icon (probably a question mark)
    => Click on thumbnail to see the full sized image
    usb2.th.jpg
  • How to verify the device you found is your web cam
    => Your web cam device will only appear in Device Manager when the web cam is powered on and connected
    => Disconnect your web cam. Verify the device you had found is no longer displayed in Device Manager
4. Find your web cam's Hardware Ids
  • In Device Manager, select your web cam device, rt click Properties. Click Details tab
  • Select Hardware Ids from the pull-down. You'll see a list of one or more Hardware Id strings
5. Search for a driver based on Hardware Id
> Update 1/26/2011: To avoid a common mistake, don't confuse the number zero with the letter "O". IDs may contain zero but NOT the letter "O"

The best driver will match the Hardware Id at the top of the list. The next best driver match will match the next Hardware Id on the list, etc
  • Start by searching for the Id at the top of the Hardware Id list
  • If only due to how different search engines work, recommend you cut USB\ from the search string
    => Example: If the Hardware Id is USB\VID_093A&PID_2468&REV_0001 search for VID_093A&PID_2468&REV_0001
  • You can start by clicking Search at the top of your TechSpot window to search TechSpot first

  • For more help on how to search for a driver using the webcam's Hardware IDs see this post

Webcam isint working


Click Start > All programs > Windows Update.

When the update completes:
Click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager > Imaging Devices > uninstall Webcam driver > restart computer >wait for the computer to reinstall the driver.

If Imaging Devices is not in Device Manager, the web cam is not plugged in and in need of repair.
If there is a yellow question mark or triangle on Imaging Devices, you need to download the driver from the manufacturer website.
