My webcam stopped working all of a sudden. I have HP ENVY dv6-7258nr Notebook PC with Windows 8. The camera app says "Connect a camera." and the device manager does not show "Imaging Devices". Instead there is "Other Devices" which has a subcategory of "Unknown Devices" with a yellow mark.
I have updated, reinstalled cyberlink youcam drivers, tried system restore (which does not complete saying i have an anti virus open when i don't have any antivirus on my notebook) but nothing works. Scanning for hardware does not bring up any thing. I have also followed the instructions given on hp site and opened the youcam software but it does not detect the camera.
Recently I bought a Y500. After installing the Windows 7 X64 and start a conversation on Skype fot the first time webcam worked without problem. After two days I tried to make a video call but the camera does not start ... Circle rotates the camera LED lights up but the screen is black.
I tried the site. Testmycam.com has image but blurred. Reinstalling drivers, i installed an old version of Skype version 4.2 but problem not resolved...
I am running Win 8.1 x64 (up-to-date) on HP Pavilion 1322TX laptop. There are Intel HD Graphics 3000 and ATM Radeon HD 7450M two graphic cards as the device manager window. Recently I am getting blue screens and later message appear saying the ATM driver stopped working. I found many problems with this driver in the past as well. When I check the relevent page for my laptop model, there is no update since 2012..
Can I update these two drivers seperately by getting updates from Intel and AMD sites?
Is there any update for catalyst control system (CCC) ?
When I try to update through the CCC or HP Support Assist, it is always no updates..
It seems like multiple people in the 1640 thread are having this issue and we seem to be unable to figure this out. Would anyone be able to give us guidance to get the facial recognition software onto our computers after a clean install and also the dell webcam software?
The brightness control keys (f2 & f3) on my pavilion dm4 stopped working all of a sudden. I'm operating windows 7 64bit. I've tried reverting to previous system restore points. I've also installed the BIOS, Intel chipset, and graphics drivers. All the other function keys are working properly, just can't change the brightness. Right now it's stuck on the brightest setting. I'm getting terrible eye strain from the screen.
Laptop is only 9 months old. I did all of the updates and then my touchscreen stopped working - that was 4 days ago. Today I did a system restore to the point before the 1st critical update (9/24/14). It still does not work. Did it corrupt my driver? And if so, what is the name of the driver? How can I restore the touch screen...

I've had my laptop for about one and half years now, and so far the webcam has been working fine. Today though, it stopped functioning. At first I thought it was the microphone and webcam, but I tested the microphone and that's working. The only thing not working is the webcam.
I tried restarting. I tried looking up the driver and making sure it was all set. At that point, I realized I didn't even have a webcam installed (which is what my programs were telling me but I didn't believe).
I then searched on this forum to find a solution and another member posted that removing the bevel and sticking the little plug back in should work. I tried it and it didn't. (I'm also concerned that I did this with my computer on... Have I done any serious damage?)

Webcam doesn't work for YouCam or Skype, haven't tried anything else because that's all I need it for. YouCam says "CyberLink YouCam coult not capture the content." and skype just buffers a black screen when I go to video settings. Both have "HP Truvevision HD" selected as the webcam and in device manager under imaging devices "HP Truvevision HD" is there and updated. The laptop was restored to factory setting, I installed Windows updates along with making sure the drivers are updated. Nothing has been unistalled and not much has been installed.
I am an HP DV6-6c38TX running Windows 7 x64. I also have VMWare Workstation 10 installed.
Drivers installed for the webcam are :
1) running in normal Windows 7 x64 base machine (not VMWare)
a) after booting the laptop I can use the webcam b) I run an app to capture an image and it works fine. I then close the app. c) I open Skype and use the webcam and then Exit Skype. d) I open the app again and it says - could not detect webcam device (assuming this comes from the app) f) I open Skype and check the webcam and it works. I stop the webcam (Skype still running) g) I start the app again and now the webcam works h) I Quit Skype, runthe app again, and it now says - could not detect webcam device
That is just for the Laptop running as is.
now in VMWare, this is worse.
a) I attach the Webcam b) I run the same app, but it says - could not detect webcam device c) I close VWMare d) Now no app detects the webcam, not the app, not Skype. e) I check the Device Manager and in fact the webcam now does not even appear in the Dedvice Manager...
I am pretty sure this is the laptop I am going to buy (it will be my first)... The specs meet what I need it for, but I was just looking for a review from someone who owned one, besides the few short ones I have found on sites selling this model
A friend ask me to upgrade her G70-460US Notebook PC to Win 8.1 from Vista. The bios doesn't have a secure boot option and when checking HP the update for this machine doesn't show it either. It this notebook to old to update to Win 8.1? If not where do I find the Bios upgrade with the Secure Boot option?

I have been having several instances where the computer would seem to 'lag' then after some flickering rendering on my monitor, Windows would give the error: "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered."
There are still effects after this message is displayed. When dragging windows, scrolling up and down etc. graphics continue to flicker.
This is not while hardcore gaming, the GPU was not working in high temperatures. Interestingly, I do not have this problem when I am in the midst of hardcore gaming. The CPU was not under heavy load, the CPU was not working in high temperatures either. I checked the temperature with thermal monitoring (HWiNFO32).
I have plenty of resources, 1223MB of RAM to spare. I also have plenty of HDD space too. I have installed the latest graphic driver for my product: AMD High-Definition Graphics Driver, but the problem persists.
Firstly the dvd rom stopped working about 6 months ago.Can live without it but now after getting a blue screen it wont boot or the screen is black.Connected it to a monitor and when it does choose to boot there is no display on the laptop screen until the login screen appears.Ran some tests on the HDD drive when its running but comes up ok.Is it likely to be a failing MB or some corruption on my OP system.
