My Webcam is Blurry (Out of Focus) on my Hp Mini

My webcam is blurry on my HP mini Laptop. Actually it is out of focus. I can place something within 1/2 inch away from the camera and it is clear as can be. So the lens is not dirty, nor is there anything covering it.


When I first got the netbook, the webcam was in Focus using Skype or just opening the camera. Is there a utility to focus the camera? I am going to try and re-load the drivers and see if this will help.


Does anyone know the fix for this?

I cannot reload the drivers for my HP Mini 5102. HP seems to not have provided them. See my whirpool post. Which model is yours?


There is a standalone app mentioend there which is downloadable from HP.


My camera is in focus but sends blurry image in Skype - this implies the image is being downgraded to lower resolution due to low bandwidth however I am connecting to another computer in my house and it is fine.
