Re: Brand new Pavilion dv7, HP TrueVision HD webcam not detected

Wow, thank you for the picture.  I had no idea where to look for the loose connection.  Once I popped the bezel open, I used a small screw driver (not the best choice cause I saw some tiny sparks when I pressed up on connector) my computer dinged and the installing new hardware bubble popped up.  Once done, I checked Device Manager and there it was.  After that, I launched YouCam and everything is working perfectly.  Thanks a bunch.

What if there is no "Imaging Devices"  in Device Manager? I also have an HP Pavilion dv7

It is indeed one of the symptoms. When the connector is loose and you get the webcam not detected message, it will also be missing in Device Manger. Reference M-Wilson above where after reconnecting, it appeared in the Device Manager list (under Imaging Devices).
