My integrated Camera and mic don't work. After searching the Device Administrator I find them as "not connected".
I think re-installing old drivers might work, but I don't know how old they should be. Maybe something to do with windows update?
I'm kinda lost at the moment on how to solve this without having to open the computer and see if it's actually connected or not.
Thanks in advance!

@SebaSN Welcome to HP Community!
I understand that Integrated Camera-Mic not working.
Do not worry. I will try to fix the issue.
I suggest you download and run the HP Support Assistant from this Link: https://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/hpsupportassistant/hpsupport.html?jumpid=va_r602_us/en/any/psg/p...
HPSA will automatically search for all the latest drivers for your Notebook
- Click My devices in the top menu, and then click Updates in the My PC or My notebook pane.
- Click Check for updates and messages to scan for new updates.
- Review the list of updates. Updates with a yellow information icon are recommended. Updates with a blue information icon are optional.
- Click the update name for a description, version number, and file size.
- Select the box next to any updates you want to install, and then click Download and install.
Also ensure Windows is up to date
Select the Start button, and then go to Settings > Update & security > Windows Update , and select Check for updates. If Windows Update says your device is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available
