Without being long winded, you might want to try HP's homepage and go to their Supports & Downloads link. In the top option box, type in your exact model (this can be found on the bottom of the computer, in your case it could read something like A916VR or something like that), that way you'll cut to the chase and get right to your exact model.

Look under the Software - Multimedia header and open that puppy up. In THERE you'll probably find the right driver(s). If there are multiple drivers then you'll have to do the trial and error approach to getting the right one. 400 laptop repairs later I'm still subject to having to do the same. Unless your comfortable peeling the fascia off of the screen and investigating the pc board for the correct nomenclature (and even with that it isn't always there either. Stuff just keeps getting smaller).

Hopefully that cures your woes with the web cam...

My laptop (compaq presario qc56) has a built in webcam, but everytime I try to use it; it says that it doesn't work. I'm confused and I would like some help on how to solve this. Or mabey I'm doing...


It is possible that you may not even have a webcam actually installed even tho the hole is there
for it

apparently some are sold without the webcam fitted ( I hope yours is not one of them )

i believe you can find out by doing this
type into search bar device manager
scroll down to imaging devices
now look for HP webcam 101
and click it to see if a properties box comes up
and see if all is well

then close the device manager

now this is what i have read
type into search bar
you cam then in the top of that search bar click on you cam
hopefully you should then get a page to register both your camera and your self
then your camera should come on

i have never put this to the test
so i hope it helps you
my apologies if it does not

I have an hp pavilion dv6...i know how to open my webcam and it usually works just fine when i take pix or when i use it to video chat on skype. today it stopped working. when i open my webcam it says that...

Windows Vista and 7 ( can't remember about XP ) come with native drivers for the webcam so it may be a problem with these. You could try running a system file check by browsing to all programs, accessories, right click on the Command Prompt and select 'Run as Administrator'. Type in the following command and hit return. sfc / scannow
If that doesnt work download and install the software driver for your webcam on the link below. i hope this works for you.
