Re: Built in Webcam HELP
Like Erin, I also have a Pavilion dv2000. After installing Vista and all the
MS updates and installing all the lastest and greatest updates from HP's
website, my webcam still does not work. As a matter of fact, Vista does not
even think there is a webcam, it does not eshow up in Device Manager and like
Erin, I have an option to unistall the webcam, but nothing else.
For what ever reason, Vista is not loading the drivers for the built-in
webcam. Even if I choose legacy hardware or do a manual search.
Any other ideas??
