I've had his HP All In One  for close to 4 years now. It's been a couple of years since I used the internal webcam for it. According to the device manager, there are no cameras in this computer, even though I see one in the top center of the monitor and I remember using it back when the computer was new. I've tried Image devices in the device manager and nothing is there either. I've pretty much tried all that I can think of. Just wondering if it's common for the cameras to become unplugged inside of the computer. Thanks for your help.

@Davids442 The drivers for the Imaging devices, which include the webcam, are not displayed in the Device Manager.
To resolve this problem, use the following steps.
Restart your computer.
If the problem persists, continue using these steps.
In Windows, search for and open Device Manager.
If there is no Imaging devices category listed, select Action, then Scan for hardware changes.
If Device Manager does not recognize the webcam after the scan, use Microsoft System Restore to go back to a time when the webcam was working properly.
If problems persist, the webcam might have become unplugged internally, and the computer might require service to correct the issue.

I have tried everything I can find on-line to get the webcam working on my new all-in-one. I have updated drivers, restarted, checked everything in camera settings, gone to HP support, etc. There is a circle with a line through it in the webcam and it will not work. How do I get it working?
