On HP notebook, that application that uses webcam are HP MediaSmart Webcam on Pavilions or Cyberlink Youcam on Preasrio.

If you have issue locating them or any error than as suggested alt_164, check of the exact model number of the notebook and post back...

How do I turn on my internal webcam?!

I have this problem - my webcam used to work, but all of a sudden it disappeared. I did have my computer cleaned recently, maybe something switched it off then?

 

I tried installing HP Quickplay from here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=3255934&x=0&y.... I have Windows Vista (though I'm not sure if it's the 64-bit or not), but I tried both HP QuickPlay Web Updates (Software > Multimedia) to no avail.

 

I've tried a few other things, but nothing is working. It's a built in webcam that used to work perfectly and it is not physically damaged, but my laptop will not even recognize its existence - it does not appear at all in the control panel anywhere.

How can I get it back?

 

I have an HP Pavilion dv9500, and have had it for a few short years. On the underside beside "service" is says dv9620us.

 

Help meee
