Ok so heres the problem. Im trying to talk to my girlfriend on the webcam. She went out and bought the HP VGA series web cam. Now everything works ok on it except for the fact the picture that I get is unclear and out of focus to where I can barely see her. She says that its clear on her end. Its kinda hard for me to fix it myself when i cant see it personally.
I have not got my webcam to work yet. It is out of focus and I can barley make out what it is showing. I have went to settings and played with it but there is no focus setting. What do I do now????

Re: HP VGA Webcam problem.
If you go to the front of the webcam, their is the camera surrounded by a dial. Turn the dial until the picture comes in clearly, and when you get it perfect, don't touch it. Just leave it the way it is and your all set. Hope this Helped -CA

The entire installation cd here: http://d01.megashares.com/index.php?d01=6b830bb. It‘s an image file that you‘ll have to burn to a cd. You can use a program like Nero, Imgburn, Roxio, or any other program that deals with iso images. Burn the cd, install the driver, and then start using your webcam!
When you installed the drivers, did you do so after loggin in as ADMINISTRATOR?? This is vital otherwise it will not work. Also a quote from the manual goes like this quote -"Exit the “Found New Hardware Wizard” by hitting the cancel button. Unplug the VGA webcam from the USB. Insert the software CD into the drive tray. Follow the software installation instructions. Once all software is installed (direct X, HP Web Cam drivers, ArcSoft VideoImpression, ArcSoft Photo Impression), close the HP Webcam window and RESTART the PC. After restarting the PC, plug in the VGA Webcam and run ArcSoft Video Impression to capture a new video." unquote. Hope this helps..................sodeep
Here is the link to the software for your web cam. All you have to do is click on which operating system you are using, then click save the file and save it to your desktop so you know where it is. Then just run the software before you plug in the web cam. During the install it will tell you when the program wants you to plug in the camera.
Don't forget to rate this a fixya when your all done, If you need more help feel free to contact me any time. I will even call and provide free phone support. Hope this Fix's Ya!
