Hp elitebook 6930p webcam not working


LOL, yeah it's plugged in, but probably not compatible with Windows 7. You need to search HP's website for a windows 7 webcam driver for your model computer or you need to try getting it from Chicony's website.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "HPSupport" or "Chicony Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the drivers.You might also try Driver Guide for a Chicony Windows 7 driver at:http://www.driverguide.com

How to activate my webcam on HP COMPAQ 8510p? It has Windows 7, 32-bit operating system. And it doesn't have any quickplay or mediasmart as far as I have researched. Where can download a program...


Hi

Follow the instructions below to use your webcam
Click on Start then >Control panel>hardware and sound >device manager>imaging devices>web cam....enable it
Another way is to use a IM application like:
Yahoo messenger,MSN Messenger,NetMeeting,etc.
They will have video capabilities that will work with your webcam.
If this doesn't work, then reinstall your drivers.

Why dont the webcam wanna work on my compaq presario cq62


Most HP laptops come equipped with a built-in webcam. However, many casual users have difficulty accessing the webcam. Whether, you have deleted the HP Webcam icon from your Desktop, or you are a first time user, there is an easy way of accessing the Webcam. The only requirement is that you have the HP QuickPlay software and latest driver for the webcam installed on your computer.

Download the latest driver for the Webcam:

1. Go to the HP Support and Drivers website for the most update-to-date HP Drivers. Enter laptop's model number, which can be found on the front of the laptop screen as well as the product sticker on the bottom. Choose the exact model from the list that shows up. Then select your operating system. Download the webcam driver from the list of available driver and software programs. Install the driver and reboot the computer at the end of the installation process.

2. Launch the HP QuickPlay application. Almost all HP laptops have the program pre-installed, but if for some reason you don't have the program, it can be downloaded from the HP website (link provided in Resources section).

3. Click on the "Music Videos Pictures" icon in HP Quickplay. HP Webcam will be available among the list of devices. Click on the HP Webcam button to turn it on(you will see a light next to webcam lens and an image will show up on the screen).

4. Double-click the active webcam image to enlarge it to full-screen.

5. Scroll down to the lower left corner of the screen and click on the "Snapshot Image" icon to take a picture. Click the "Record" icon to record a video.

6. Click the "Info/More Settings" icon denoted with a lowercase "i" to change settings such as the aspect ratio (4:3 or 16:9), or recording quality.

7. Use adequate lighting for the webcam considering its limited image quality and low light capabilities.

8. Now that you have installed the driver for the webcam, most 3rd party programs should also be able to detect and access the webcam. It can even be used it with messenger applications for video chatting/conferencing.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Based on the information you have provided, the issue might be due to the Webcam Driver or the settings.

When i try to use my webcam on skype, it comes up being used on another application, the cam is built in to my hp pavillion dv9000, how do you get it off and on to skype?


Sometimes the webcam software can 'hang on' to another program if you have been using it elsewhere. Even if you you have exited that program correctly it can still happen.
With my webcam I can reboot it by unplugging it from the USB and plugging it back in after a few seconds.
As yours is built-in you will have to reboot the whole computer, use a keyboard shortcut, (if the machine has one) or 'disable' and then 'enable' the webcam from the Device Manager.
