Hp webcam error on installing


Hello Aabel,

Have you tried using Microsoft system restore to go back to the a previous state before you started experiencing that issue? If you haven't tried that I will highly suggest that you try for the cause of the issue may be some changes that were made to the system.

Another workaround is as follows;

  • On your computer, go to the device manager and  then expand "universal serial bus controllers" .
  • In case see a driver called "Sonix  T50500 WEBCAM"  a webcam driver  you will need to right click on it and then choose  "update driver software" .
  • After that  select "browse my computer for driver software" and then choose "let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" .
  • After that choose the "USB Composite Device" and then click next.

Hope this helps.

I think it is not a hardware problem. Hardware problem only can be possible when the built-in camera broken. Think it’s a problem with webcam configuration or a device driver problem. You can check the setting of the webcam. If it’s a device driver problem you can download the latest version and install it to your laptop. At first you have to uninstall your older one from your device driver.

As you are using Windows Vista operating system you can follow the following instructions:

  • Firstly you have to have an internet connection.
  • Then you know the model number of the laptop.
  • Go to the HP website
  • Select your laptop model and then click on the software and driver downloads.
  • Choose your operating system.
  • Select the software update file what you need and follow the instructions.
