Press on start then type hp mediasmart webcam or simply webcam then double click to activate and start the webcam .If you need to download and reinstall the driver then you can have it for free download on its official manufacturer website,follow this link:
I have, yes. HP mediasmart webcam opens a search window that gets no result, and just 'webcam' open the 'Devices and Printers' window, which doesn't show it as a device. A coleague of mine has the 6530b, and his HP driver download page has a web cam app that works, mine doesn't. I don't want to have to install the facial recognition software just to use the webcam, as I had to do with the protectools app and the fingerprint sensor. mmMmm, I just noticed this is for 4420s, and mine is actually a 4520s. Am I in the right place then?
Hi guys, I haven't done anything on the machine since last post, because I have another little problem - the screen is cracked (I got it like that, in fact it's the reason I got it...), so I don't use it often (sleeps in a bag beneath my desk).
As to H.Ammar's suggestion, I don't have anything in Device Manager or Programs and Features with the name Arcsoft. So I don't know what to remove.
I may be re-installing with Win7 Ult x64 anyway, coz I want to add buckets full of RAM.
Will see how it goes then...
Thanx for all the input!
