If you upgrade your operating system like from windows xp to windows vista, you need to install new hardware driver for your computer like for LAN, webcam, WAN and others because the old driver is only compatible with the old operating system and not with VISTA operating system. Solution would are, download webcam and WAN driver for Windows Vista and install it into your computer. Don't just upgrade your computer because the configuration is not the same with the old operating system. If problem still exist, just upgrade the service pack from 2 to 3. There is available install for upgrading the service pack of each operating system. and surely all your hardwares will function.

I have a windows 7HP and have a problem with the web cam what should i do to reinstalle the inbuilt web cam?


Hello,

If the webcam is not working, it may be a driver issue.

I recommend you download the latest driver available from the HP support website.

Then uninstall the one which is actually installed and replace it by the new drivers.

Click here to download the webcam driver. You will notice that this driver is designed for Windows Vista, but it should work on Windows 7.

Hope this helps.

In device manager look for something like imaging devices.
Please click on the + sign beside it .
Then right click on the web cam driver > and uninstall it .
then go to the following url and download the web cam driver from there.
http:\\hp.com > software and drivers.

Install the web cam driver . Restart the notebook .

Webcam problem


i hv HP dv6000 and facing same promlem. B.coz its my field, so I tried myself to solve it.

Then I found that: If I try to use cam after using it in QuickPlay then it will not work.

So to work with web cam in yahoo messanger, just re-boot your lap and then (don't try to use it with any another software like QuickPlay etc), just goto Yahoo Messanger and use it, atleast it will work first time after boot.

If any problem just Ask me
Thanks
