Camera was working then suddenly doesn't work anymore. Camera driver wasn't present in device manager to perform a reinstall on the cameras driver. Manually installed the universal camera driver from HP's site and same issue. Ran a firmware update as well, no luck. Anything helps!
Never mind I found the simple solution! Hopefully it helps everyone else too!
In the apps and feature settings, under camera's advance settings I reset the camera. Performed a reboot which did not fix it. Under device manager, I scanned for hardware changes then select "show hidden devices." The camera showed up, I uninstalled the driver then scanned for hardware changes.
The driver reinstalled, performed a reboot and issue resolved.
If this doesn't work for you try checking your system Bios for disabled hardware, or restoring your device to a previous stage.
