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.

No webcam icon for my HP dv 1603 tn laptop and no audio after upgrade to wndows 7. please help me.. thanks


If you did a retail or OEM upgrade to Win7, you are likely missing the drivers necessary to run your webcam and audio. Click on the Start pearl on the bottom left corner, then right-click on Computer. In the context menu, choose Manage. A window should appear. On the left side of that window, click Device Manager. Information should populate in the right hand pane. If you see any devices with a yellow icon, you are missing drivers for these devices. In order to download those drivers, first go to HP's Support Page for the Mini 1000 and choose your specific model number. Then, make sure you choose Win 7 as your Operating System. Look for the webcam and audio drivers, as well as any other missing drivers you've found in Device Manager, and download and install them.

XP is a dead OS for 3 years, getting help is not easy, due to that.
why not reload, the OS, fresh (F11 key), i bet its infected with viruses., as most XP system all are.
the HP manuals tell you how to use that, my guess lost.

what are you wanting to do with said cameara"
use skype or just do selfie, or just what?
the usage factors dictate what software one uses.

the hp pages are below.
see those books there, called guides?

here is the offical hp page (for guides)
https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-mini-110-1000-pc-series/3943764/manuals

mini users guide, XP, read that? bet not.

How do you enable a webcam on a laptop


Check along the keys from f1 to f12, the picture above one of these keys should resemble a camera icon.
You need to hold the "fn" key found at the bottom left of your keyboard then click the corresponding f(1-12) key at the top. This should turn on your webcam

I have a problem with my webcam sound. I recorded my assignment speech and when i try to listen to the speech, there was no sound coming out from the webcam. i tried everything and nothing worked. Can you...


Hi chinonsobeau,

First off, you to list the model number of your HP web Cam, as well as your OS, and the software you using to record your sound. I will assume that you have Quickplay which HP ususally send out with their web cams.

To access QuickPlay, just press the "blue QuickPlay button" next to the power button. If it doesn't load QuickPlay, just do "Start" - "All Programs" - then you will see QuickPlay listed there. If you still can't find it just do a search, you will find the short-cut. If you still don't find it, then HERE is a place you can download it and use it. It also has instruction on how to use it.

Or sometimes HP sends out Cheese, another camera software. You can download that HERE.

These are the instructions for QuickPlay:

Once launched QuickPlay, click on the 2nd icon from left (between DVD and TV icon), then double-click on "HP Pavilion WebCam" from the left side panel, then you will see the blue LED light lit and you should see yourself on the screen. (Double-click "yourself" to enlarge image)

To take a picture or record video, just press the corresponding buttons on the top. (the red circle icon is for recording video (press "Stop" icon to stop recording), the camera icon is for, well, camera)
Videos and pictures are saved at:
Pictures -- C:\Users\Public\Pictures\My Snapshots
Videos -- C:\Users\Public\Videos\HP Webcam


I'm less familiar with Cheese, so I'll give you their website HERE to go to their support and they can guide you through their program.

Anyway, I hope this helps,

Don't forget to leave a raing,

Thanks

Mark
