How do I turn on my internal webcam?!

Hello @rebeccamuncy,

 

Thank you for providing your computer information.

 

If you use Skype, yahoo messenger, or MSN messenger those programs have the ability to let you use your webcam. Just simply open up a program that uses a webcam.

 

There also should be a program called HP Mediasmart that should let you use your webcam. If that is not installed you can install it from here.

 

Please respond back at your earliest convenience.

Thanks

@Tex9311,

 

Your webcam should automatically activate once you open a program that utilizes the webcam. Try testing your webcam using this site.

 

Please respond back at your earliest convenience.

Thanks

How do I turn on my internal webcam?!

I have just had a work colleague bring in her laptop as she had exactly the same problem as most people on here, her webcam would not activate even when using the YouCam software.

 

I followed the advice in this link...

 

http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02452221

 

In her case it was the webcam that was not visible in Device Manager (Imaging Device) and we had to reset the laptop by taking the battery out and then holding in the power button for ten seconds before putting the battery back in and restarting the laptop, then suddenly the webcam was back in Device Manager and is now working as before.

 

Good luck!

Hi, I tried doing this and it did not show up. However when I go into my device manager my camera does show up. I also was wondering how do I go and make my camera work on online sights such as webcamtoy.com? Because it only works with devices that I download into the computer, which is honestly a hassle to work with.
