Youcam software is just a fancy software, there is no driver in it.
You have a clasic issue with pavilion webcam driver, try running all Vista update, one of them is a pacth for usb devices.
Pavilion DV2922TX, XP-SP3 32bit, Intel T5750 2.0Ghz, Nvidia Geforce 8400M GS with 128MB, 4GB 667 DDR2, 250GB HDD

Me being a guy with some slight anger issues...i got so frustrated I hit the top where your webcam sits...and suddenly what do you know? it started working.
This is how I found out that it has absolutely nothing to do with your computer itself, it's the web cam. actually no I take that back, it's not even the web cam because the webcam works fine...it's a loose wire or it's not seated in there very well. if you go through HP's forums you'll see a lot of people have this problem. HP SHOULD recall all these recall all these laptops, or atleast offer to fix the webcams...but that'd be money outta their pocket

the simpliest way why the webcam is not detected: there are too many dust inside the laptop, and the motherboard is dusty and sometimes webcam works, sometimes something else...
First you can check if the dust is the problem: just blow some air where you can find the fan and after you check the webcam is working better...
if you use to blow the dust with a spray or to clean with a hoover maybe good solution. So, somehow try to clean your PC from dust.
Please reply if the dust was the problem!

My laptop started doing the same thing. The webcam worked and then it just started saying it was no longer detected. Hp is crap. I've had 2 and finally got smart and bought a Sony Vaio. Love it. My HP's never lasted more than a year. I searched all over this web looking for an answer but there is none except find a new laptop!
