Built In Webcam not detected in Windows 7


  • I am running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit on an HP laptop.  It has a built-in webcam.  It has been working just fine until recently.  Today, we tried to Skype and the camera did not work.   It is not listed in device manager.  I have done some research and read about driver problems, but the camera does not show up anywhere to look at the drivers.  Does anyone have any ideas?


    Thank you so much!  I greatly appreciate your advice.

  • I would go to the HP website and download the drivers for the cam and install them again.

  • I did that and it is a no go.  I guess I am going to invest in a new camera!

    Thank you anyway!
