Go to control panel - system - hardware - device manager. If it's not there as a video device, it may be an unknown device. which means that the driver for it is not installed. Make sure the webcam is compatible to U'r operating system. Vista is limited.

Webcam is not found on computer


The webcam is usually built in on the LCD monitor display. Does your monitor have a webcam integrated in it? If you purchased this from Dell or other retailer as a bundle ( computer-monitor printer, etc) most likely there is no webcam. You will have to purchase a webcam.

How can I get my webcam working on HP laptop


if you have driver no problem IF not go webside HP download web cam driver >model no

1. Downloaded the file.
2. Unzipped it to a folder on my desktop.
3. Ran the "Setup.exe" file in the folder that got unzipped.
4. Went through the installer until it got to the end and then let it restart my computer.
5. Waited for my computer to restart.
6. It popped up something saying it was installing the drivers for my webcam. Waited until it was done.
7. Opened the Control Panel.
8. Opened the Device Manager.
9. Find my webcam under "Imaging Devices". I noticed it was listed as "HP Pavilion Webcam" despite having just installed the Acer drivers.
10. Right-clicked on my webcam and chose "Update Driver Software..."
11. Chose "Browse my computer for driver software"
12. Chose "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
13. Unchecked the "Show compatible hardware" checkbox.
14. Scrolled down to the Chicony manufacturer.
15. Chose the "Acer Crystal Eye webcam.
16. Told it to install anyway when it asked me a question about installing that driver.
17. Waited for the driver to be installed.
18. Noted that my webcam was now listed as an Acer Crystal Eye webcam in Device Manager.

And that was it. It appears to work totally fine now! Again, I have my fingers crossed that it won't suddenly break again, but so far so good.

Forgot to note: This is on a DV6000T running Windows Vista 32-Bit Home Premium.

3. If the webcam is listed under Imaging Devices but there is a red X on the icon, the webcam is disabled.

To enable the webcam, right-click the HP Webcam for XP icon and click Enable . The webcam icon should now display on the Desktop or the My Computer window.

Hi,

Try to login to windows messanger if you have else some chat programs like yahoo,skype or google, followed by try making a video call and it'll let you know whether your webcam works or not.

But if you want to see your webcam programs,
click start - all programs - search for the name(Web cam manufacturer)
or
open my computer - open c:\ - program files - search for the webcam manfacturer.. It should be there..

If you still dont find, let me know.

Hope this helps !
Thanks !
