Q: pavilion webcam linux

Hi I just installed Ubuntu 16 on a HP Pavilion dv1000. Everything works well, except my webcam. I have spent countless hours searching for and installing linux drivers, but no luck. Starting to think that it may be a hardware issue? Can anyone help me try to troubleshoot this? Thanks...

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


I have just bought this lkaptop and the hardware is nice, but I do not want to run Windows. Simple, I thought, as it's a PC, I'll just install Ubuntu. Well, the boot from USB is UEFI and that is a bit of a pain to set up, and I can't get it to work. The Ubuntu 14 install disk I burnt is an EFI boot CD and it simply fails to boot. Using the F9 option I get aBoot device failed message in white text on a blue screen. When I try to boot through the boot menus I get a missing file at \ubuntu\winboot\. I have just created a Windows recovery disk and that seems to boot fine. It looks like the BIOS/UEFI is set up to only allow Windows to boot. I've bought a USB DVD drive and failed to boot from that, also two memory sticks and a HDD. So, questions, before I put the laptop in the bin: 1. Has anyone else got Linux onto this device and if so what image and procedure did you use to get the install to work? 2 Is there a way to get legacy mode booting set up in the BIOS (The BIOS mentions legacy support in the screens but its not there).  Andrew 

A:Linux on HP Pavilion x2 detachable PC 10

It seems that the hp x2 has a 32 bit uefi. So you'll need a 32bit uefi boot loader. Most distros I've seen just ship the 64 bit bootloader. There's a guy at debian who is trying to support this kind of thing - He's working on a netinst image for deb8. The current image he's published so far boots, but I can't get networking to work. Here's his blog (other good stuff there):http://blog.einval.com/debian/CDs Here's the deb image:http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/efi-development/jessie-upload3.Hth /markus

Hi. I have wondered is my (quite) new laptop suitable for any linux? I did dualboot win10 and ubuntu 16.04 LTS but i have no idea why everything isnt working really well (I never had dualboot before, used only ubuntu). I might even want to have only linux in my computer but I dont know how to fix if something goes wrong, I have no experience in these things. I have tried to find imformation of what I should do, but I have no idea. I dont want to use only windows. If someone knows something or have a little time to help me, or to guide me in right forum or something, I thank you.  

A:HP pavilion notebook 15-ab150no and linux?

What part of Ubuntu is not working well? You have an AMD processor and AMD integrated video which is a bit challenging in Linux but can be made to work. Is wifi working?  I also prefer to have Linux available and on my latest laptop it was problematic to get it installed in a dual boot arrangement so I installed it in a Virtual Machine installation and that is generally enough Linux for my needs.

I have a HP Pavilion m7570n running Media Center. I attempted to install a couple webcams, Logitech Quickcam and Microsoft LifeCam 3000. When I plug into the usb port, places the camerna with a yellow flag in device manager, but software does not recognize the camera. I disabled Mcafee viruscan and firewall. Any ideas?

A:Pavilion does not recognize webcam

Didn't the devices come with an installation CD? AND did you use it before plugging in the Cams? Usually the 'yellow flag' implies that there may be a driver installation problem..wrong or missing.

The Webcam on this laptop has been working fine for some time, but just recently it stopped working and I believe this occurred after one of the automatic upgrades. Following considerable investigation I find that I have 2 drivers under Imaging devices, they are as follows.

A Intel(R) Imaging Signal Processor 2400
B Intel(R) AVStream Camera

When it stopped working B was the driver showing under Imaging devices.

I also discovered that when I "updated" the driver and selected A the webcam worked and I thought problem solved but when I close down and then restart the webcam no longer works. The device listed in Device manager is still A. If I "update " still driver A the webcam works again.

Driver B is still present but only when I get to "Select the device driver to install". I do not select it.

How can I get out of this loop? Will deleting driver B help and if so how do I do this?

Any help appreciated.

I purchased a Pavilion dv9000t recently with Vista Ultimate and decided to run it on XP Pro until Vista becomes more useful. Figured out that I needed to disable the native SATA support in the and BIOS and installed XP Pro. I am going to add a second 100GB 7200 rpm SATA drive to the system shortly.

Everything is working well except for the webcam. It simply doesn't work. In the device manager, it shows up as "USB Video device" instead of "HP Webcam 1000." I see a "USB Video Device" in "My Computer" but when I double click on it, I am told: "Creation of video preview failed. Please check the device connection and make sure that the device is not being used by another application or user." When I try to use the webcam with Skype or other programs, I am told that webcam is not connected. By the way, the webcam did work, sort of, when I tested it with Vista. I say sort of because I made a recording and the recording quality was BAD.

I have tried to install the XP driver for webcam from HP's website (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...n&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3224058&os=228&lang=en) but that didn't do anything.

Thanks for any helpful ideas.

I am assuming (very possibly incorrectly!) that I am dealing with a hardware issue as I have tried all the suggestions in the troubleshooting section. I recently have been unable to use my webcam on my HP Pavillion g6 101-4sa netbook and when I open the software (Cyberlink youcam) I get a message saying " connection to your video device was lost" when I click ok or try to exit the message (the only available options) I receive a further message stating that"  Cannot connect to the video device (USB Video Device). Please select another capture device via the settings or close any applications that may be using video device and retstart Youcam"  When I select ok the first message appears again and it becomes a cycle of when I ok one message the second message reappears. Therefore I am currenlty not even able to go into the settings. I previously was able to do so but after following instrictions on the troubleshooting page I uninstalled the youcam program and reinstalled it when I originally was able to go into the settings there were no other options only webcam 101. I have tried everyother option on the troubleshooting page for the webcam but have failed to come up with any solution. Would really appreciate any advice anybody could give me to help me to resolve this issue.

A:HP 101 webcam not working on HP Pavilion g6 101 4sa

What troubleshooting document were you using? If any of this is a duplication of what you already tried, my apologies. Is the webcam listed in Device Manager?Click Start > type "Device Manager" into search box > click Device Manager from list of results.Look for the Imaging devices category.*If the category isn't listed, or if no webcam device appears when you expand the category, go to Action > click Scan for hardware changes.*If it is listed, expand the category and look for your webcam device. Right-click the webcam and select Uninstall. Then go to Action > click Scan for hardware changes. If the webcam is recognized by Device Manager but the YouCam software still isn't working, try uninstalling/reinstalling the software again. If that doesn't work, uninstall it and then try downloading different software to use your webcam. There are freeware programs available that should work (Google "webcam software" for options and reviews).

Hi there, I am new to this site so hope this is the correct place to post this thread I have a HP Pavilion dv6 & tried to Skype my son last night but the integrated web cam is not working. I have uninstalled, updated river software - already on the latest version, gone in to Device Manager but don't have Imaging Devices so I found the web cam further down under sound, videos, game controllers & checked it was all up to date, it is. It is running a Cyberlink Youcam, other people can see me but I cannot see them. I have Googled until I am blue in the face but they all tell me what I have already done It says that no web cam is detected but the program is there!? I go in to the web cam & try & change the the destination or whatever it is but nothing happens. I have Windows 7. I check on Skype that it is picking it up & it is the only web cam in the drop down list so I am at a loss. Can anyone advise please? Thank You.

A:HP Pavilion dv6 webcam not working :(

If others can see you, then the cam is working. The cam is used to capture your image. It has nothing to do with displaying other images onto your screen.

So it sounds like you have a Skype or display issue, and not a cam issue.

Other than that, I don't generally use cams and have never used Skype.

I think it was a year or so ago now that for some reason my C drive managed to switch drive letters all by itself and I had to reinstall the OS just to get my computer to boot back up again. I don't think the reinstall was 100% successful. A lot of screwy things showed up in the device manager, and I had to manually reinstall lots of drivers in order for my computer to be usable again. I guess I just forgot about certain things because I never used them, but now I'm just trying to get my system back in order a bit.

I've been looking for solutions on this for a while now, but nothing seems to be working. My webcam is not being recognized by anything whatsoever. Facebook won't recognize it, Skype doesn't recognize it, and it doesn't even show up where it should in the device manager. I've tried downloading webcam drivers, new versions of HP QuickPlay, even drivers for 3rd party webcams. I've even gone to HP's website, looked up my exact model, but for some reason, they don't have drivers for a webcam, which is odd considering I'm looking a webcam as I'm typing this.

Any ideas?

Hello people! First of all, I'm a complete beginner when it comes to computers so please bear with me. I bought a used HP PAVILION DV9715NR laptop at an online auction. It supposed to come with all these goodies (17" screen, wi-fi, webcam) but without the hard drive. Using the online video instructions, I manage to put a new hard drive in and install a new Windows Vista operating system!!! So far so good, now comes the fall (lol). When I try to get in to the internet, my computer tells me that there is no network adapter detected, but according to the specs on this laptop it suppose to come with one. There is an amber light that goes on on the lower left hand part of my keyboard area but I can't get it to turn blue. Is it just a switch or do I need a "network adapter" (I don't know EXACTLY know what my laptop means by that)?? I even tried physically connecting my laptop to my router with a cable my router provided, no cigar!!! I tried going to the "device manager" but I just don't know what I'm looking for or to activate it when I find it! If I don't have the "network adapter" hardware (whatever those are) is it something that a neophyte like me can do or would I need to take it to a computer repair store where it will probably cost me an arm and a leg.

After a system restore of my Notebook and an upgrade to windows 10 my webcam had stopped working so I had checked the driver for updates which Device Manager had told me there were none and neither skype or youcam could recognize the integrated webcam despite it saying there were no problems, I tried disabling and re-enabling the webcam as well as restarting the pc and nothing had worked and eventually I had ended up accidently uninstalling the integrated webcam driver altogether and I really don't want to restore my notebook again if it can be avoided. So is there a way to re-install the driver for the webcam that comes integrated with the HP Pavilion 17 Notebook?, I have already tried searching the site for the driver and could not find any drives for my notebook it simply suggests that I update windows (which I already have and the issue was not resolved).

A:Pavilion dv6 webcam and microphone issue

Feel a bit stupid replying to myself, but nobody else has replied and I thought it best to share what I have discovered. The webcam was faulty, straight out of the box.And the microphone is connected to that functionality, but uses a different driver - so if your microphone works it might be a sign that your issue is with cam driver(s). I bought from PC world about a month ago, so took it back there despite it being very busy.  This was the second faulty webcam in an HP they'd had returned today - the earlier was a dv7.  There was no issue with getting it replaced - they took a look at it, considered installing drivers off a disc but when it wasn't shown in device manager and the mic not working either, they knew right away.Really does show very poor quality control from Hewlett Packard.  It is a shame as in the first few weeks I've been really pleased with this model, but realistically now I know this is what their QC is like, when my business needs it's next piece I'll be going with something other than HP.

Hi everyone,

I'm using an HP Pavilion dv2166eu (AMD Turion 64 x2), purchased in JAN 2007. Like a lot of people who bought this laptop I loved the design, but have had endless issues with it.

It functioned perfectly for 8-9 months and then the trouble started. First thing that went was the WIFI. At first it would work sporadically. Now the wireless/bluetooth card manages bluetooth only and doesn't even register it as a wireless card. I switched to an external wifi usb.

Then the BATTERY, which had been slowly 'shrinking' over year one would struggle to manage a couple of minutes without the AC. By the end of year two, I was lucky to get seconds - so I make sure the AC is never at risk of disconnecting mid-sentence!

On its second birthday, the SCREEN packed in, operating in one in five boots, even though everything else concerning a regular boot was working well.

As the laptop fell out of warranty, HP were bugger all help...
I had used the online support chat thingy with them on many occasions previously (mainly regarding wifi), but a succession of 'fixes' (driver updates) had never helped and only served to delay me on taking more drastic action until I crossed the warranty deadline. I told them that I was aware that the Pavilion range was flawed and that they should replace the model, but they could only offer to fix or replace at around the 300 mark. No way!

So I took the laptop to a local engineer...
Given the model, they were unsurprise... Read more

A:HELP: HP Pavilion dv2000 Built-in Webcam Problem

Are the drivers specific to Vista 32 bit? I've found that some drivers are cross compatible between Vista and 7 but not all of them. Also if you had a 64-but version of 7 you cannot use 64-bit drivers. Also is this Vista disk from the same manufacturer? If not you can't use it.

As a side note 1.4 gb of ram is not sufficient for Vista. With that little you would have been better off with 7 since it handles memory slightly better. 2 gb is the absolute minimum with either OS though. Without at least 2 gb more than likely your system will be relying on virtual memory which is really slow.

Hi Guys, I had the same problem with a HP Pavilion dv7-6e22b. I read about a short cable on the inside of the screen.I found the following post about how the screen is connected. this was an older model but i was curious about how to remove the lid of the machine. it contains 2 screws (which I didn't have to unscrew to acces the camera) just be causious not to break the bevel. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-lcd-screen-inverter-board-hp-pavilion-dv7-notebook/ this is a older model in the new model the webcam connector is located directy under the webcam lens itself.I pressed te connector lightly. And all ofa sudden I hear a USB connecting sound. After that my device manager showed a connected "image device" and the software worked directly. I hop this will solve your problems to. I must say reading all the posts and not finding a solution in driver or software and after seeing the connector I think it's a poor deisgn effort using such short cables and tiny connectors. good luck to all !

If it's not listed in Device Manager then it looks like it's not compatible with Windows 7.

If all else fails you can always buy a webcam that is compatible with Windows 7.

This is no guaranteed solution_but one which has worked for some.In Device Manager remove/uninstall all the entries under Universal Serial Bus Controllers.Start with the last and move up,removing each.Reboot to see if any change.

Goal: Dual boot Windows 7 and Linux and have an NTFS partition for both OS.

Problem: When creating Logical Partitions with any Linux partition tool(Gparted, cfdisk) the Linux swap and ext 4 partitions shows up on Windows 7 as primary partitions outside of the Extended partition while the NTFS partition shows up inside the Extended partition as logical drive. Disk management shows 5 primary partitions and 1 logical drive inside an extended partition.(As seen in Disk1.jpg attachment) I'm using MBR.(not UEFI)

I can create the partitions in Windows 7 disk management and choose not to format the two logical partitions used for Linux. I can then use the mkswap and mkfs.ext4 command to format the partitions.(See Disk2.jpg attachment)

Why is Windows 7 disk management not showing my partitions correctly when I use a Linux tool to partition the disk? Will this cause any problems with Windows 7? I'm afraid of making Windows 7 unbootable.(although it booted just fine I do plan on using EasyBCD to add an entry to load the grub bootloader for Linux)

If I partition my disk with Windows 7 disk management(as seen in Disk2.jpg) will that cause any problems for Linux?

What is the recommended way to handle this? What are the downsides to each way?

Note: I'm a bit of a linux noob.

Devices powered by Linux are increasing day by day, and most of these devices are positioned at the entry or key points of any organization?s network. Misconfigurations and easy to exploit vulnerabilities are commonly leveraged by bad actors. Many of these attacks can be studied by configuring low-interactive Honeypots.

Low-interactive Honeypots can capture the malware scripts and binaries, however analyzing these malware samples are also important. Further, keeping such analysis openly available helps independent researchers to search information of their interest and make useful conclusions.

Detux aims at automating the analysis of Linux samples, by supporting multiple CPU architectures (ARM, MIPS, MIPSEL, x86 and x86-64), and making its result openly available for researchers.

My config is HP G6 1075 SA with W7 Home Premium 64 bit pre-installed. It was working well until last week when I decided to install Debian Linux. I am no N00B to Linux and have installed it probably 100s of times. Debian installed and booted well but Windows BSODed with an error 0x0000225 cannot access drive. I formatted C and attempted to reinstall Windows 7 but it is unable to detect the HDD. I accept terms of license and move on to the point of choosing disks but nothing shows up. (There is an option to choose drivers. Where do I locate them? The HP website isn't helpful and I can't even find my product let aside the drivers)

I have already tried :
1. Partitioning an NTFS file system in Debian. Doesnt show.
2. Deleting a partition in Debian and attempt to see the free space in W7 Installer. Didn't work.
3. Try to do the BIOS setting thing (Change SATA option from AHCI to compatible or something). I could find no such setting in BIOS. The BIOS was severely limited with only option of switching on fan.

What do I do ?
The chipset is Intel HM55 if that helps and harddrive is SATA 5400 rpm 500GB.

A:W7 installer doesn't detect SATA after Linux, Linux works smoothly

All Linux code must be deleted using the CLEAN ALL command.As you have had linux on the HD you need do a Clean all & full format.

Do a full clean & full format in command prompt.
1) Boot DVD & Press Shift+F10 (for command prompt)
DISKPART : At PC Startup
2) Boot DVD, & Command Prompt at Startup
(for command prompt)

Type in command line

Hi there

I usually run a LINUX HOST for testing Windows VM's - but I need to test some new releases of various Linux distros so I've created some VM's --easy enough and running them on a Windows Host.

However I can't attach a USB drive with a Linux file system (XFS) to the VM as the Windows HOST rejects the HDD wanting me to format it !!. There's 2.7 TB of media files on it - I want to test running media server in a VM.

Anybody know how to bypass the Windows nag prompt about the HDD and be able to attach it direct to the VM.

(The other way round is no problem -- never a problem loading NTFS HDD's on to Linux machines -- however the NTFS file system is SLOW compared with XFS -- on USB3 device on Native windows transfer rate of 1 TB of files from fast NTFS HDD to NTFS USB3 device is max 82 Mib/s - average for whole transfer. On same machine with Native Linux and XFS to XFS (using same HDD's and USB 3 port avg speed is 350 mib/s !! -- HUGE difference !!!).

Note I have to have a Windows Host for this --I know I could run Linux VM's from a Linux Host but in this case I do have to use a Windows Host as that will be the destination system at the end of testing.

BTW I'm running VMWARE workstation 12.1 on W10 Pro Host.

I have SUSE 9.3 Installed on a 19GB partition of a 40GB hard drive. I heard that it is possible to dual boot with Windows with Linux being the first installed OS, but it's complicated. Can anyone tell me if I can pull this off without having to make Windows the first installed OS? Here is how I have my partitions:
hda1=1GB [swap]
hda2=17.8 / [root]

A:Linux/Windows dualboot machine with Linux first?

The easiest way: Make hda1 bigger and install Windows there.

You will have to restore GRUB later using the SuSE CD and also create the GRUB menu entry for WIndows..
