Question about HP Webcam

Hp webcam's microphone not transmitting sound.

Hi, my Hp webcam's microphone not transmitting sound. I changed harddrives and installed updates for windows and hp drivers provided with web camera. The camera works fine with old harddrive so the drivers are what I suspect. I try to down load and install many drivers without success. This has to have happened before to someone else. My computer operating system is windows xp. Nice dell, 8300, is my computer.

I can't access built-in hp webcam. need help when i upgraded to windows 7


This is most likely a Driver problem. If HP supports the Windows 7 upgrade for your particular computer they will have updated drivers for it and all your devices on the HP web site. www.HP.com You will need to check HP for updated Drivers and download them to install.

The microphone on my HP pro webcam won't work. When I test it, it just buzzes. I tried changing the sound on my computer control panel and on skype but neither work


This could be caused by many things including that the microphone itself has either stopped working or if you just purchased the unit it may be defective. but it can also be caused by a improper installation in windows itself.
to reinstall the camera please follow the steps outlined below.

First step i would unplug the camera and uninstall the current drivers.
2nd i would follow this link to Hp's website where you can download the latest HP pro webcam driver/software. 3rd after downloading the software do not plug the camera in and restart your computer. 4th. After your computer has restarted and all the normal startup processes are running. Open the newly downloaded drivers for the HP pro camera. install the camera. After the installation is done then you can proceed to plugin the camera. Unless you were prompted to at a specific time during the installation.
After that you should be done and it should be installed and working.
If the microphone on the webcam is still not working it is most likely that the microphone itself has stopped working. If you just bought the unit you should return it for an exchange. If the product is still under warranty you should contact Hp and get it fixed under warranty.
If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the solution. thanks and have a great day.

I am new at using Skype. I have had a logitrech Communicate stx Web Cam installed. I notice there appears to be what one would think are microphone holes at the base of the lens as well as the writing...


You are correct.
For Logitech to work with Skype you need to install the Logitech driver for your model WEBcab. Then you need to configure Skype to use the Logitech WEBcam and microphone.

To test if the Logitech QuickCam is functioning, check the USB cable; make sure it is connected properly. Then click on Start - All Program - Logitech - Logitech QuickCam and see if you can get the camera to capture your image/video.
If this works then configure Skype. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the Logitech QuickCam
Also check the Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.
Avoid connecting the WEBcam to an USB hub, connect it directly to the computer's USB port.

My PC (running Vista) does not see my HP Webcam Deluxe. Why?


Fully, uninstall your drivers from Device Manager...then connect to internet and let the Vista detect the drivers automatically. Normally this is caused by Windows updates.
