Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Built in webcam on HP pavilion dv 6000 laptop will not work seems to be no driver in device manager have downloaded firmware and driver from HP, but on installing it it says already on computer where? and how do I get it to work. my pc is hp pavilion dv 6000, it is imported from USA. I lost my driver softwares when I odne formating my software, is it possible to get drivers which are very important to me . And mainly my cam is not working with out drivers
i shall quote from him "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." MOST helpful finding but al i did to fix was uninstall it for the USB Controllers
and ALSO CHECKED the DELETE DRIVER and it auto installed to IMAGE DEVICES automatically upon the search for hardware changes! ..And after MONTHS of whatever caused it to stop working and trying EVERY possible NON format procedure you sir, proved MOST USEFUL AND HELPFUL so thankyou may my quote and improvied methood be useful to anyoen else that has this issue

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 :
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 :
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 :
Additionally, if you are using the webcam with any Messengers, you can try the instructions in the links below :
