Try downloading Advanced System Care FREE version. It corrects errors and has many other features too. If you run it once a week it repairs most of your problems.
If that don't work for ya, you may have to get into you bios settings and make sure USB capabilities are enabled.
You can also try going to hardware and uninstall it, the reinstall it again.
It doesnt sound like any kind of Malware problem, but you can also download Malwarebytes.org and scan your system. If nothing else it helps keep Malware out of your computer.

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. http://www.downloadsource.net/d16952/HP-Pavilion-Webcam-Driver-Windows-Vista-x32-x64/ i hope this works for you.

Did not have Webcam driver for Compaq C773TU model for Vista


You didnt say whether this worked before or if you are doing a new OS install but the web camera driver is part of the vista operating system. See below info from HP....

Microsoft provides an automated Windows update function that examines your computer and installs the appropriate drivers and programs for Service Pack 2. One of the updated drivers, Microsoft USB Video driver , is required for proper operation of the webcam on your HP or Compaq notebook PC.
If you have updated to SP2 but the webcam is not working, see HP Notebook PCs - Webcam Does Not Work with Vista or After Upgrading to Vista , for detailed instructions on manually installing the latest webcam driver (usbvideo.sys) from Microsoft.

Acer webcam USB probelm


Is the webcam USB? Try rebooting the computer with no other USB devices connected. If you're still having the problem try it through a separate mains powered hub. Webcams can often overload the USB ports on laptops.

USB devices (not recognized)


Hi Hanna,

You may try to uninstall and reinstall the driver of your webcam. You may need to check also if the driver application is compatible with the operating you are using. Most of the new system we have now are operating in 2.0 USB port drivers.

If your webcam driver is compatible only with windows XP, then it won't help you resolve the problem if your system is operating in Windows Vista (new operating system for most new system).

Please clarify also the type and model of the webcam you are using. keep me posted.

Thanks.

If the webcam drivers are installed, you should be able to find it listed under Imaging Devices.

If not, you should find it listed as USB Webcam under Universal Serial Bus Controllers in the Device Manager.

However, first of all, you can try installing the webcam preview application which can be downloaded from the link below :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35001-35500/sp35414.exe

Download and install the application after which you should get a icon to access and find if the webcam of the Notebook is working or not..

Please be informed that if you install a retail version of Operating System in your Notebook, you will loose the Preinstalled Quick Play application with which you should be able to use the webcam.

However, you can try using Cyberlink Youcam application that is provided with all the latest HP Notebooks for using the Webcam with and can be downloaded from the link below :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp39001-39500/sp39372.exe

Save and double click the file to install the application.

Try the instructions available in the link below to test the webcam using youcam application :

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01414839&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

Additionally, if you are using the webcam with any Messengers, you can try the instructions in the links below :

However, I personally recommend you to save this email and if any time the webcam does not work or if it shows blank screen please perform the below steps.
Before we trouble shoot this issue let me explain the reason for this issue, HP has released new driver for webcam and the driver update process can’t be done automatically and as long as the old driver exists the webcam does not work, To resolve this issue First we need to uninstall the existing webcam from device manager. Then restart the notebook and install the latest driver to resolve this issue

2. Click on "the Classic View" on the top left side of the control panel.
3. Double click on the "Device Manager" icon in the list.
4. Click on + next to the Imaging devices. Now you would see one HP Pavilion webcam or more then one web cam listings under the Imaging devices.
4. Right click on each HP Pavilion web cam and click on uninstall. And confirm un installation if it prompts. (Click on Yes.)
5. Now the Imaging devices option should not appear on the device manager.
Note: If the HP pavilion webcam is not listed or Imaging device is not listed, in device manager you need to reset the Bios to enable the webcam. Once you reset the Bios the webcam will listed in device manager. Here are the steps to reset the Bios.
1. Restart the notebook.
2. Tap the F10 key as soon as the HP logo appears.

Step 5: Installing downloaded web cam driver (sp34746).
1. Double click on the downloaded file (sp34746) and follow the on screen instructions to install the file.
Step 6: Once the installation prompts you that the installation has been successfully completed. Now you need to restart the notebook.

Step 7: Enable the Imaging services on the notebook.
1. Tap Window key(flag key on the keyboard) and R key on the keyboard, at once.
2. You would see the Run window on the screen.

7. Click on Apply and Ok.

Step 8: Now check the webcam in quickplay or Muvee software. verify the step 1 to know about how to use the webcam in quickplay or muvee.
If the still issue persists, Please check webcam name in device manager. If you see USB 2 Video device under the Imaging devices the webcam works properly (it means latest drivers have been loaded successfully). If you see the HP Pavilion webcam under the imaging devices, it means still the notebook is using old webcam drivers and you need to repeat the steps from Step 2:
Follow theses steps should help ya get back on line with your cam .
