I installed YouCam 4.1 in my HP laptop boot after installing it showing you dont have the compatible VGA hardware or drive to run you cam what can i do?


maybe the problem is in your laptops hardware, maybe the you video cards memory is not compatible on the webcam that you buy,or maybe try to check if your webcam has a driver installed on your laptop. to check right- click on my computers icon the select properties, then choose hardware tab and choose device manger this will show all the hardware installed on your computer and all the hardware that needs a driver, usually the hardware that needs a driver is in color yellow and has a question mark sign.. hope this may help you

HP VGA Webcam problem.


If you go to the front of the webcam, their is the camera surrounded by a dial. Turn the dial until the picture comes in clearly, and when you get it perfect, don't touch it. Just leave it the way it is and your all set. Hope this Helped -CA

The microphone on my HP pro webcam won't work. When I test it, it just buzzes. I tried changing the sound on my computer control panel and on skype but neither work


This could be caused by many things including that the microphone itself has either stopped working or if you just purchased the unit it may be defective. but it can also be caused by a improper installation in windows itself.
to reinstall the camera please follow the steps outlined below.

First step i would unplug the camera and uninstall the current drivers.
2nd i would follow this link to Hp's website where you can download the latest HP pro webcam driver/software. 3rd after downloading the software do not plug the camera in and restart your computer. 4th. After your computer has restarted and all the normal startup processes are running. Open the newly downloaded drivers for the HP pro camera. install the camera. After the installation is done then you can proceed to plugin the camera. Unless you were prompted to at a specific time during the installation.
After that you should be done and it should be installed and working.
If the microphone on the webcam is still not working it is most likely that the microphone itself has stopped working. If you just bought the unit you should return it for an exchange. If the product is still under warranty you should contact Hp and get it fixed under warranty.
If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the solution. thanks and have a great day.

It is not connecting to the computer


your computer should always acknowledge the fact that a device is hooked up to the computer via usb or otherwise I would say your webcam is proably dead and in need of a replacement

Not able to install webcam Hp EW193AA


Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web do this.
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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
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
