I have asus k53s series and my built in webcam does not appear or shown on devices and printers..but when i use yahoo messanger and skype there's a image view on webcam but it is flip vertically u


Your webcam would be listed under Imaging Devices in the device manager. If it is showing you an image when you use skype or yahoo messenger then it is installed. Go into the webcam software to change the settings on how it is projecting the image.

You have to open the webcam software to activate or start the webcam. There is no button to push or switch to turn on. The webcam software is somewhere in the program list. Click Start/Programs then search for any reference to webcam or camera. Sometimes the webcam might be inside one of the manufacturers folders in the program list so search the folders for it. Some manufacturers have something like Entertainment Experience that will open and show all the entertainment devices such as the dvd drive, webcam, media player, etc. if you see it click it to launch it then click on the webcam or camera icon.

Try using ManyCam

You can always download Manycam and install it. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When the site opens look down on the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type "Manycam" (without the quotes) in the white search area then hit the search mirror. When it brings back your results look for the one that says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it and install it. Make sure you remove the check box on any junky programs it would like to install. You only want to install ManyCam, no additions whatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use, and you will always know where your webcam software is.

This is the link to the HP site wher you can download the webcam and bluetooth driver for your laptop. Or you can turn on your automatic update and as time goes on it will give you the update for those devices automatically.

I have an hp pavilion dv6...i know how to open my webcam and it usually works just fine when i take pix or when i use it to video chat on skype. today it stopped working. when i open my webcam it says that...


Windows Vista and 7 ( can't remember about XP ) come with native drivers for the webcam so it may be a problem with these. You could try running a system file check by browsing to all programs, accessories, right click on the Command Prompt and select 'Run as Administrator'. Type in the following command and hit return. sfc / scannow
If that doesnt work download and install the software driver for your webcam on the link below. http://www.downloadsource.net/d16952/HP-Pavilion-Webcam-Driver-Windows-Vista-x32-x64/ i hope this works for you.

The person i am calling on skype cant see or hear me


You can only use the webcam with one device at a time? If you are sure the webcam is working properly shut down the software specifically for your webcam.

Log into Skype as normal.

Do you see the video call options in Skype?
In Skype you can check what you see in the following path?
Tools/ Options/ Video Settings/ Camera
Is you webcam listed if not link it using the option here.

If the webcam drivers are installed, you should be able to find it listed under Imaging Devices.

If not, you should find it listed as USB Webcam under Universal Serial Bus Controllers in the Device Manager.

However, first of all, you can try installing the webcam preview application which can be downloaded from the link below :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35001-35500/sp35414.exe

Download and install the application after which you should get a icon to access and find if the webcam of the Notebook is working or not..

Please be informed that if you install a retail version of Operating System in your Notebook, you will loose the Preinstalled Quick Play application with which you should be able to use the webcam.

However, you can try using Cyberlink Youcam application that is provided with all the latest HP Notebooks for using the Webcam with and can be downloaded from the link below :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp39001-39500/sp39372.exe

Save and double click the file to install the application.

Try the instructions available in the link below to test the webcam using youcam application :
