I just reinstalled my HP Elitebook 8560p with the recovery cd but the webcam isn't working properly.
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional (64bit) installs the webcam as "SPCA2080 PC Camera" but if I uninstal it and try to instal the firmware from HP website nothing happends and on reboot its still "SPCA2080 PC Camera" in device manager.
Anyone know how this is possible ?

Still no reply.
I'll describe a bit more:
Webcam after installing Windows 7 Professional 64bit
When testing it in Skype: I get black screen and it keeps loading the webcam. Screen stays black.
Reinstalled drivers: Windows installs it as unknown device
Testing in YouCam: No Webcam has been found
Reinstalled drivers again: USB Video Device
Testing Youcam: keeps loading again with black screen
Hope Someone knows what to do

Installed windows vista 64bit
Vista doesn't detect the webcam in device manager now -__-
All internal connections look fine tho I don't think the problem is in there..
EDIT: Disabled and enabled webcam in BIOS.
Vista installs it first as SPCA2080
Then Vista installed it as USB Composite device
Uninstalled that also
Gets installed as unknown device
HP Drivers aren't working in install
