Web camera not working

My web cam not working during i run a HP smart media web cam, so i need help, give any driver for web cam for HP Pavilion g6 series laptops.

Hi!

can u send me the model of your hp and the OS u are used.

Code 10 error is nothing but issue with the Drivers.  To resolve this issue, download and install the webcam drivers from the below link.





Install the Webcam drivers from the link given below 


ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34501-35000/sp34746.exe


This will resolve the issue.


All the best

whatever camera you are using go to any search engine and type the camera model and brand and after that say vista driver

Basically I had the same problem but gotit fixed today...All you need to do is to look on the back of your laptop and check out the model no. as sometimes the model no. thats being displayed on the screen may not be correct..In my case it was written as HP Pavillion dv1000 but in reality it was HP Pavillion dv1520..

Go to HP's website and download the drivers for the webcam. Did you recently upgrade your OS system. That could be why it's not working currently.

If the webcam drivers are installed, you should be able to find it listed under Imaging Devices.



If not, you should find it listed as USB Webcam under Universal Serial Bus Controllers in the Device Manager.



However, first of all, you can try installing the webcam preview application which can be downloaded from the link below :



ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35001-35500/sp35414.exe



Download and install the application after which you should get a icon to access and find if the webcam of the Notebook is working or not..



Please be informed that if you install a retail version of Operating System in your Notebook, you will loose the Preinstalled Quick Play application with which you should be able to use the webcam.



However, you can try using Cyberlink Youcam application that is provided with all the latest HP Notebooks for using the Webcam with and can be downloaded from the link below :



ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp39001-39500/sp39372.exe



Save and double click the file to install the application.



Try the instructions available in the link below to test the webcam using youcam application :

I wish the infomrmation helps.

If it's an internal webcam,the one on the top of the LCD monitor,look for a key on the keyboard which has a webcam picture on it,usually between F1-F12,but not always
If it's an external webcam,that connected to USB ports,open the device manager
Right click on My Computer and select properties,then click on the Hardware tab and click Device Manager, expand the Universal Serial Bus Controllers by clicking on it,and see if there are any USB device that has "?" sign on it. If there are one,right click on the device and select uninstall,uninstall it and then restart your computer,when the computer turned on,the driver will reinstall automatically

or if you need a driver,you can download it here
