HP Pavillion Notebook, Vista.
Webcam was working fine till last week. On skype, red diagnal line accross camera icon. When I click it, my picture flashed on my friend's computer then goes out.

Across the screen is. Video settings webcam: cyberlink webcam file Can't start video. Try closing other programsthat might be using your webcam. (No other programs on) Also, cannot find webcam in control panel.

Thanks Madmin.
I don't have any software. The webcam is built in and came with all the programs loaded. Everything worked fine for over 3 years and something happened over the past week or so.

I checked Device Manager. Unless I missed something, there is nothing in the directory that even resembles a term for a webcam.

I think it would be under "Image Devices" if it was installed.
I did a quick search. HP webcam drivers.. I don't know if they're the correct drivers or not, but try installing and see if it does anything.
