Hi All

I have a customers laptop with a hp webcam 101. Skype updated and now the webcam doesn't work with it.

I have tried installing an older version 6.16 but it still doesn't recognise the webcam

You are using Windows Vista according to the tag.

Uninstall Skype completely, restart, check the camera and then download and install the newest version of Skype. Restart and check.

HP's website covers some common issues with Windows Vista and HP cameras here - http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01235743&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3351220

Here's a link to a Microsoft and Skype discussion on the issue which may be of some help.

Hi All the issue has been resolved by downgrading to version 6.14 of Skype. The latest versions do not work with inbuilt webcams in laptops

I am glad you got the web cam working for your laptop.

The latest version of Skype DOES work just fine with the web cam on a more modern operating system. I am using it here.
