I am having the same problem with my new mini 1030nr... when I try to use the built-in webcam the camera capture is very dark... if I have a light directly behind me you can start to see an outline... but the captured image is still mostly black.
Is there a way to configure the web cam? I couldn't find any way to make it any better...
Any answers HP???

Thanks for the find but it didn't work for my computer (HP mini 1000). I tried both the driver by itself and also the installation software from HP. Am I missing something? The errors I'm getting are "The system is not supported" and "The specified location does not contain information about your hardware" from the installation software and the individual driver respectively.
Can anyone help?

Same problem as everyone. I can confirm that this fix doesn't work on my 1035NR. On a manual driver update I get the message "The specified location does not contain information about your hardware." I should note that I'm trying to update the "USB Imaging Device" in case this is the wrong thing.
Tech support couldn't even figure out where to route my call for my mini. I was on the phone for 40 minutes and spoke to five different people who kept telling me I was in the wrong department. Award winning? I'm taking it back.

As i know, i'm fixing that problem, by using OS Vista but you are using XP. Because in Vista that device will appear as a normal webcam device, however, in XP it appears as USB device. I will try to find and then solve it, while that you just wait..and I will upadate it soon for the solution in XP.
as a prove i did send a pictures on this link http://www.speaking-up.com/blog/?p=662
So to all the users of the new HP products, I will put the update in http://speaking-up.com about the problem that can be solved, I will try to give the best solution that you have.
