Re: webcam on CQ56 Compaq Presario

As the previous post stated, several CQ56 models are listed as webcam-ready but require an external webcam to use the mediasmart software since they were not shipped with an internal webcam.

 

Webcams @ hp.com 

 

Also, you can view the specs for your individual laptop by going to www.hp.com/support, typing in your unit's product number in the search bar, and clicking on "Product Information". This will tell you what all came with your laptop.

 

Hope this helps!

Re: webcam on CQ56 Compaq Presario

It appears that I have a place on the top of my laptop screen, in the middle, that looks like a camera, except it has a plastic shaded shield over what looks like the eye. I have tried to turn on the webcam but the YouCam greeting window displayed backward, like I am looking at the mirror image of what should be there. Am I making sense or connecting to anyone? My issue is that I don't know what this means, and I don't understand how to make the camera work, or if the thing on top of the screen is just a worthless design to confuse me.

Re: webcam on CQ56 Compaq Presario

My model of this laptop, precisely, compaq presario cq56-192sa came shipped with an internal webcam. After formatting and upgrading to windows 7 ultimate, the webcam stopped functioning. I have been looking everywhere online for a driver, and it is this search that brought me to this forum, still no solution.

Just wondering what HP is up to.
