Solved: Built-in Webcam not working
hey, i have an hp g42 laptop with windows 7 and the webcam wont work. when i start up cyberlink youcam, it says: "Warning, No webcam detected. Try plugging in a webcam into your computer now. If you are using an integrated camera, make sure that it is turned on". It worked when i first got my computer for a few months, then it stopped. I havent used it for a few months because of this problem. Please help me! Any help is appreciated, thanks!

There should be more to that model number.

If you can't find it, can you find the product number on the PC?

It should look like this:

What are you doing posting the install key for the world to see? Delete it right away.

TheShooter93, you should know better then to ask danny21 to post the product key!

That's the one Danny21. Just for an example, say that this controller in the image is the problem. Double click it and the properties box will open. Highlight whats in the Device Status and past it here.

I misunderstood the OP and used the wrong term, my apologies. I needed the information like that represented in the screenshot I posted.

Of course I wouldn't want them to post the validation key for their OS.

Again, sorry for the trouble danny21 and Lance1.
