Have you tried running the: HP Support Assistant | HP® Canada

 

to see if it will find, download, and install the missing software?

 

Or, open the Windows "Device Manager", and double-click on the icon for the device, and try to update the device-driver.

I tried hp support but they couldn't help me . I searched in the device manager for my integrated camera driver but it didn't show up . I also tried scan for hardware changes hoping it would install. And that also didn't work out

windows 10 compatible systems use the "generic" camera driver that comes with win 10 as such there will not be any 3rd party drivers

 

a clean reinstall of the OS usually restores the camera (backup user data!)

i recommend you "READ   [ how to do a clean windows 10 OS instal}l by entering that into a search engine like google

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03430151

 

Try the steps recommended below.

 

In Windows, search for and open Device Manager.
Double-click Imaging Devices to expand the list of webcam drivers.
If there is no Imaging devices category listed in Device Manager, stop using these steps and see the section Webcam is not listed in Device Manager in this document.
If more than one webcam driver is listed, right-click the driver and select uninstall for any driver that is not the HP Webcam-101 or Microsoft USB Video Device driver. Once the other drivers have been removed, restart your computer and open your software. If problems persist, continue using these steps.
Right-click the name of the webcam in the Images Devices category (HP Webcam-101 or Microsoft USB Video Device), and select Update Driver Software.
Click Browse the computer to select a specific USB Video Device driver.
Double-click Imaging Devices to expand the list of webcam drivers, right-click the webcam driver, and then select Properties.
Make a note of the existing name of the webcam driver (Example: HP Webcam), as it might change after the update.
On the Webcam Properties window, select Update Driver.
Select to Browse the computer for the desired driver.
Click Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
Remove the selection from Show compatible hardware.
Select Microsoft in the Manufacturer field, and select USB Video Device in the Model field.
Click Next to install the webcam driver.
Allow the installation of the USB Video Device, and then click Close.
After the device has been updated to USB Video Device in Device Manager, restart your computer and open your software.

 

 

the HP HP PAVILION G6 line came in many different submodels a example would be: HP Pavilion g6-1a52nr 

 

look on the bottom and post the "FULL" laptop model number some models came with win 7 through 8.x

 

was your laptop upgraded to windows 10 using the MS free win 7 to 10 period several years ago?

 

or was the win 10 a clean install?

 

you laptop used the microsoft USB video class driver (no driver required)

 

 https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/stream/usb-video-class-driver-overview

 

or a HP-101 webcam made by realtek
