HP webcam not working on skype

Elitebook 840 G3

I am having problems with the inbuilt webcam on my laptop. 


I cannot use it in the Skype program. Works fine in windows. 


I have tried to rool back the HP HD camera driver and install and older version of Skype. 


No luck

Hi! @Luxol11, Thanks for stopping by the HP Support Forums!


I understand that webcam is not working during Skype on your laptop.


The issue may be in the Skype Options -- if you have not already done so, open Skype and check:
Skype > Tools > Options > Video
Your own video screen should just pop up -- if it does not, make sure that it is set to "Automatically receive video and share screens with" >> People in my contact list only.


Please update the camera driver from the link below.

Please let me know the outcome.

Cheers! :-)
