Make sure you have the updated webcam driver installed which you can download from the HP web site. Then to test the webcam, try going to http://testmycam.com and click Accept to let it access your camera and see if it works.

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.

Hp G42-415x running window ultimate 7 need hp webcam software to install to make the built in camera to work. Please help I format the hard drive and there is no recovery disk so I reinstall new vers


415DX (corrected) windows 7 32bit or 64?
first off there are only 3 ways (besides 2 day google searches and gettng infected 10 time)
what are the, in order. of easy and safe.
step are you connected to the internet.? yes/no..
if no ,there will be now drivers...
i see you formatted the HDD. that kills dead the free windows from HP doing that. its gone now.
so what w7 disk is that FROM WHOM? MS?, hacker? whom?
media used matters.
  1. go to Device manager and see if cam is there, click update.
  2. go to HP, see link below, get the drivers you deleted.
  3. run scan tools to learn what camera is there and get driver from the maker of cam. ask.


what you need is the HP driver.
load all these, cept BIOS.

i guessed 64bit

this is your support page, get them while still there (be savvy)

I upgraded my HP dv5-1150 us to Win 7 and since then wireless switch is not getting on. I am able to access wired internet though. Please help


The issue might be with the wireless drivers. As you have upgraded the operating system of your notebook to windows 7, the drivers might not be compatible with it. You may have to install the wireless drivers for windows 7
