Try a system restore from the point closest to the time before the last successful use of the web cam. Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore>(enter). This will bring up a window/wizard. You may have to check the box close to the bottom left, "Show more restore points" to find the date you need. I hope this helps you in finding why this problem occurs.

Three options you can try:

1) Did you do a System Restore to an earlier date? Start- Accessories- System Tools- System Restore

2) Hit F8 while the unit is booting. On the menu select "Last Known Good configuration"

3) are you OK to do a system restore? I believe you can access recovery partition with F11 or F10 at startup (Compaq logo splash).

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Built in webcam won't start up?

Hi Jonathan If your Miller and I am Mirza I am totally wandering if we are related lol.

Anyway to your problem. Try scanning for Hardware Changes if none are detected, try updating the drivers for the webcam. You might also want to try the longer alternative.

Go to device manger, Disable the webcam, Uninstall it, Reinstall it, Update the drivers, and update windows. This should fix the problem.

Bear in mind that Software names for webcams do not always include the brand name that the webcam was built by. This is because the software for webcams is usualy written in japan wear as the webcam was built by a diffrent company in america.

check your device manager to see if there's any conflict in your visual devices usually marked by a yellow triangle. You should also update the driver of your webcam, most times that's all that's needed.

Averatec 2500 Series Webcam Not Working

Try uninstalling the webcam restart your computer,reinstall the webcam with the single original driver WITHOUT any updates.If that does'nt fix it, the webcam may have went out or a sevice may have been turned off somehow.Sounds like the webcam went out or has become disconnected in some way or a corrupted driver.Also remember to, VISTA sucks
