Try going to HP or using the HP update to get the newest drivers for the laptop.  I've had HP machines and the problem is more than likely on the HP side.

Are the Camera and other USB devices getting detected by Windows?? Or nothing happens at all and the computer just freezes??

Also scan your computer with MalwareBytes Anti-Malware (www.malwarebytes.org) to be sure that its not a malware issue.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Aha, I see. Have a look in BIOS to see if plug-and-play is enabled and universal serial bus (usb) is allowed as well. Secondly, please carry on with the malware scan in the meantime. Its quite possible that updating BIOS has turned off the USB support.
