my webcam is not working, it is built in. it does not appear in my device manager at all. i thought my service pack 1 was out of date and that was why my webcam had stopped working. well i updated to service pack 2 and i am still having this problem. when i close and reopen my laptop i get a message saying "usb device not recognized" meaning my computer doesnt remember i have a built in webcam. what can i do so i can fix this on going problem?

Did you try looking at the HP website

by The Scummy One In reply to HP Pavillion dv6000

and downloading the drivers for it? Maybe an updated version is needed.

Also, you can try uninstalling it, and then re-installing it.
Is there a setting in the BIOS to disable it (or a disable button)? Try turning it on.

Did you turn on the Web Cam first?

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to HP Pavillion dv6000

These have a switch on them to save power when not in use and thus extend Battery Life.

You'll need to Read the Manual to see where the switch is to toggle the Web Cam On & Off.

You should also check here to see if your NB is one of those that has had a Recall Issued here

Goto download drivers.
Select your mmodel and download chipset drivers for motherboard.
This should solve your problem.
Make sure you are downloading for right Operating system.
