USB/Installation problem. I have this problem with this brand new webcam I bought the HP Elite Autofocus Webcam. I thought maybe the webcam was broken when I tried installing it I even went back to bestbuy to get another ne... and that wasn't it.. there must be some setting on my computer that won't let me install it... I turn on my computer and the Magic-i program comes up and says to re-install it cause it wasn't installed correctly, so I do that but still the same problem then I try out my webcam on the Webcam companion 2 that came free in the installation cd.. and it says my webcam isn't installed or its in use by another computer.. but I only have one computer I really need some help on installing it I think i've tried almost everything to get this webcam to work. driver for webcam topsun

Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

I am running Windows XP and I am using a webcam, and using yahoo messenger to video call a friend. They can hear me but I cant hear them. Why


Must be a issue with the compatibility between yahoo messenger versions. It happens to me quite often with some contacts and the only workaround I could find to this was to open a Conference and invite the other person to join. This way they can hear me and I can hear them as well (You have to tick hands free in the conference window).

Cant open my HP webcam after installation


you should go to hp and make sure you get the driver and the program for the camera and uninstall what you put in and try the new versions.
pay attention to the path where it installs to and go to that folder and look for the .exe that starts the prog.
