INTEGRATED WEBCAM and MIC NOT WORKING

I bought a new HP Pavilion DV6 Notebook with windows 7 home premium pre-installed,the problem is that  the integrated webcam "HP true vision HD"  is not working with YOU cam or any other software such as Skype ,though the webcam physically is present on the LCD ; it does not appear on the device manager ...infact no imaging device is available on the device manager.Also the built in microphone also not working.No changes were made to the system ,the system is brand new as it is.

 

Please suggest a solution.

You can try a System Recovery since that is it just a new notebook.

 

This would basically isolate if it is a SW to a HW problem.

I have a Pavillion dv7 with the same issue. I have too much info for a system recovery. Is there a way to switch it on? Thats what it says to do, but i cant find it anywhere either.

Re: INTEGRATED WEBCAM and MIC NOT WORKING

I have the same problem. I think this is a fault with HP design and how these things are made. 

 

I spoke with HP and they told me to do a system restore. Done that and the mic and camera still done work. This is really a poor computer. To spend all this money on a DV 7 .. Never would I buy a HP again
