Go into Control Panel-->Device Manager. click on the triangle next to the Imaging devices to expand the section. Right click HP Truevision HD and then verify that the device is enabled. The following image is courtesy of HP.

What's made me really worried now is there is no Imaging devices or whatsoever, it's not listed !!

I will have to wait to see what your Device Manager shows as installed. Has the webcam ever worked?

The HP TrueVision HD camera in my dv6 was working, but recently has become intermittent.

With the panel open, the device comes and goes as the screen moves back and forth on the

hinges. This is accompanied by the O/S connect/disconnect event sounds. :I

This is hilarious.

 

**NOTE** I am a video editor who makes a lot of custom sports movies.

 

I bought my Dv6 back in March. I tried the HD Cam once. It worked and I was amazed at how clear and crisp the video was.

 

Fast Forward 2 months. For no particular reason. I go to skype my parents. But my camera won't work. I look all over the laptop for a reason it's no working. In two months I've managed to install custom programs for my A/V production with all kinds of add ons. Various other programs for viewing and testing. I've made several productions utilizing about 650GB of my 1TB harddrive.

 

After checking out the web for a driver, I find HP doesn't have a driver on their support site for this model. So I check the forums and find this isn't an isolated issue. I call up technical support and after all the same troubleshooting I did, their fix is. Close all open programs, reboot, and restore back to manufacturer. That's it. No care about anything I've got installed or saved. The support person tells me this is the only fix. As HP has no known driver to resolve the issue.

 

{Content Removed: Language Filter Evasion} kind of shady support is that? HP Distributes a high end personal laptop with no known support for a pretty well known existing issue?
