Is your WEB cam driver is properly install? to check it go to your device manager and see if the cam is properly updated. if not then you can get the driver for it from HP website. if you don't have web cam application tehn you can download youcam software from the net.
try and install the right driver for this device ...that's why it says this ...it sees all wrong ...the issue with windows 7 is that does not have drivers for cameras or elder devices....if it is a built in camera ....just try to get in touch with the manufacturer and see if there is any drivers for the camera ...also ...you can try the driver for vista on 64 ...usually works ..but this is not a rule... if there is no other chance ..until the driver will appear on the internet ...just get another camera with driver compatible with this operating system ...or roll back to vista or xp ...cause this oS is not that great anyway ...its slow...hard t use...and strange...
According to what you've told so far it's gong to be software problem. I had such thing with my dv6000 when webcam and microphone stopped working for no reason. So to solve the problem CLICK HERE, select your operating system, download the webcam drivers and reinstall them.
your webcam is external or built-in in your laptop? just plug your webcam and it will automatically detect by wyour windows and will be ask a driver for installation of your webcam....if you have a cd driver of your cam insert it to cd-drive and follow the instructions on your screen...
did you downgrade from vista
the cam will need to be setup with yahoo and msn
if your having problems installing the cam then try
some vista programs will not work with xp and the same with some xp programs will not work with vista
so let me know if cam is downloaded and you just need setup on msn and yahoo
