Re: Using Webcam in Hp probook 4540s

I believe your Webcam software is "Arcsoft".

 

You might find your webcam by looking in

Start > type / search "arcsoft" and then Clicking on the item to start up the Webcam software.

 

======================================================================================

 

Generally speaking, the HP version of the webcam software provided for "free" with our systems is a stripped down version of the same type of that software that is available for purchase. 

 

For example, there is a paid version of Arcsoft software that provides video and 3D -- does your webcam software do that?  It may have the video, it may not have the 3D...

 

======================================================================================

Can you use the webcam software for other than Skype?

  • What you can do with the software depends on the level of sophistication of your webcam software package... You might at least be able to use the webcam software with other social media tools and programs: Instant Messenger, Live Messenger...
  • You can always opt to purchase a program that does what you want -- it costs money, of course, but you do get more features with the paid products.

Re: Using Webcam in Hp probook 4540s

by searching "arcsoft" it aint coming any thing!

 

Sir i have bought the laptop HP probook 4540s recently of  $645.8 with a dos!

and downloaded the drivers from your website.

 

If i wanted to use webcam by snapping own picture or for other use then there should be an option in my computer or control panel. 

 

As in device manager there is a hp webcam by seeing the property there is written your device is working properly.

 

Is it a specific software for hp laptop 4540s to use webcam without any social messenger?

if there is then please mention the name and the link as well so that i can download

I was able to find that information in the manual for your computer.

 

From Hp probook 4540s User Guide :


Start > All Programs > ArcSoft
TotalMedia Suite > WebCam Companion

 

 

I do not find that software in your Driver list for your computer for Windows 8.

At the moment, I do not have another source for this driver.

 

The following Arcsoft software package is available for Windows 7:

ArcSoft Webcam Sharing Manager

 

Please direct your inquiry to HP for your new computer. 

Be sure to indicate your Operating System -  Windows 8 or Windows 7.

 

Contact HP – USA and Worldwide
