    Can you install the webcam without the disk


    Good day. If you have problem installing your webcam because you don't have the disc, no need to worry. You can always download it online. Open a search engine like google or yahoo then just type the name and model of the webcam driver your looking for then automatically it will give you links where you can download it. For example " download HP webcam driver" . Hope this information will help you in resolving your issue. Thanks for using Fixya and have a wonderful day.

    I recently just bought a new laptop (compaq presario cq56) it has a webcam and all but its says please turn on the webcam, how do i turn on the camera?

    This document pertains to HP Notebook PCs with Windows 7 . A webcam is built into the frame above the display screen on some HP notebooks. Since there is no power button or desktop icon for the webcam, the only way to test and use the webcam is to open a webcam application. Many of the applications used in Vista, such as CyberLink YouCam and QuickPlay, are incompatible with Windows 7. However, HP offers the MediaSmart suite for Windows 7 which includes a webcam application. HP MediaSmart Webcam can record videos, take snapshot photos, add text and animations to the image, track your movements with an avatar, and allow you to adjust the settings of the webcam. Many people use their webcam in a video chat. You can use HP MediaSmart Webcam with most third party video chat programs.

    You can try the HP support site, it might have the right drivers.
    Another option is to use a driver finder program to locate the HP drivers or compatible drivers based on the hardware id of the webcam.
