webcam issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • ok so my hard drive broke awhile back on my hp pavilion 6636nr so i got a new one and had to install xp ((i had vista))
    so later on i got my dad to get me vista ultimate but since i updated my webcam doesnt work i tested it with quickplay and only got a logo that says hp when i clicked on it then i tested it on a game at newgrounds and instead of it recording me it just flickers red and white in a fast pace i need this webcam to record my videos due to lack of cash for a real camera

    ... anyone got any help??

  • Hi,

    Did you install the proper driver for your webcam after upgrading the Operating System? To make sure the driver is properly installed, you can open the Device Manager to check if there is a yellow mark on the icon of the webcam. You can download the driver from HP website.

    If you are sure the drver is OK, I think you should ask HP for further help to check if there's hardware problem.
