My built-in webcam on my HP Pavilion TouchSmart desktop computer will not work on all programs, online or offline and will not display on my computer.

My built-in webcam on my HP Pavilion TouchSmart desktop PC, product #: FK935AA-ABG, model #: IQ515a, does not work, that is to say, it does not appear on my computer as a work/usable/functional/real webcam. The green light next to the real webcam above the screen doesn't flash or turn on (there is no light indicating that it is not on). I don't know how to activate it or make it work. On Windows Live Messenger, the name of my webcam does not appear on the drop-down list, and I want to know why it does not appear only on MSN but Skype, HP TouchSmart, YouCam and other online and offline programs.

    I have windows 7, AMD Phenom he's 840t Quad Core with a dvd burner as the top super multi drive on my HP Pavilion p6720f desktop computer. Can I install a Philips DVD R/RW drive (DVD8801/96; 68096 046 9305) as my second drive burner?


    Are you sure of that model #?  I found it listed hereandhere as a PATA/IDE hard drive. Not a good choice!

    That being said, here are my suggestions.

    You need an internal Sata DVD + RW (there be DL mode) and the necessary cabling. Power supply not having a spare power cord Sata, but it wil have the molex 4 pin. You also need a Sata data cable.

    Player $18.99

    cable selection:

    just a data cable, you have found a power cord Sata 15 pin $2.99

    just a power and data in the drop-down list $3.99

  • Upgrade graphics card for HP Pavilion A6720Y desktop computer

    I have the HP Pavilion A670Y desktop computer and was thinking of upgrading the graphics card GeForce 9100 integrated to a Radeon HD5850 and adding a new power which would allow this change. Power side is there a reason that my office would not be able to support the Radeon HD5850?

    It's your motherboard.  Make sure that the slot next to the PCI-E x 16 card is open as 5850 is a wide double card.  Your PC has only a 300 watt PSU so 5850 is only in need of a much larger power supply.  Look at the 12 + rating required by the 5850 and then choose the new modular power supply.  Buy not only on power alone.

    Your PC has a practice of small Tower and the 5850 will consume more power (wattage) compared to your existing integrated video processor which means more heat. Be prepared to deal with this issue.  The 5850 is perhaps too card for your PC.

    Don't forget that your PC system BIOS is up to date.

    Open your Pc and clean all the dust. Then a measure of your current diet and buy one that is modular with almost the same dimensions.  Then measure around the PCI-E x 16 slot to make sure that the card fits.

    Review the specifications of performance ATI and NVIDIA . Look at the specifications of strip memory bandwidth and level of DirectX support.

  • HP Pavilion Touchsmart 23 NO KEYBOARD not WORKING!

    Well, I called HP, Logitech, Microsoft, you name it.  I recently bought a HP Touchsmart Pavilion 23 at our local office depot.  When we started to install everything and realized that a dongle is not included with the keyboard and mouse.  I called Office Depot and they me comped a new mouse and a keyboard WITH a dongle.  After you have everything installed and ensuring that there are fresh batteries, the grand has worked the mouse and the keyboard didn't work at all.  I called Office Depot again and they replaced, this time with a combo keyboard and mouse from Microsoft.  Once again, same problem.  The mouse worked fine, the keyboard... not so much.  After the last call with Office Depot, I went and exchanged to the option of keyboard and Microsoft with a Logitech mouse.  SAME THING.  The keyboard will not work.  I've updated the drivers, I changed the USB ports... You name it, I did EVERYTHING!

    So I call HP... After having been suspended only once, but 5 times... I finally speak with Andraos and it lets me know that it is a real problem of Logitech.

    I don't know what to believe.  Someone please help.  I don't know what to do.  This computer is about to go play in traffic.

    Just been through this scenario with this exact model series. The small USB dongle has not been unpacked. The owner called me and we went through the entire area. He was finally found in clear plastic wrap. It is so small, that it has been neglected.

  • HP Pavilion a6767c desktop computer: WIFI HP Pavilion replacement card

    I have a 2009 HP Pavilion a6767c desktop PC (model name: FQ587AAR), in Windows 7 Home Premium. My problem is that my WIFI signal is weak to 1 or 2 bars on a "good" day. Sometimes, I don't have any signal. Everything on my desk works very well. For comparison, I also have a HP Pavilion dv6t - 6 c 00 CTO Entertainment Notebook which is furthest from the ATT wifi router modem than the office. With the laptop, I still have 4, for the most part 5 bars. My smart phone Samsung S4 also has good Wi - Fi signal in the House. The problem seems to be with the Wi - Fi Office. My device manager says I have an adapter 802. 11 b/g.

    Is simply a new card internal Wi - Fi? If yes what is recommended for my office to the brand and I should get? And it of just a matter of unplugging the Tower, grounded by static electricity, opens the box and try swapping in the slot?

    Any orientation of this novice is appreciated. Thank you.

    Thank you. I have a direction to follow.

  • Pavilion Touchsmart 17-e123cl: reading a VOB file on the disc is pixelated and its so strange, but from the dvd is ok.


    I have a laptop of 17-e123cl Pavilion Touchsmart with installed PowerDVD12.  If I play the videos from the drive VDV plays it very well, but if I copy the DVD to the hard drive and try to play there the image has a lot of large blocks and horizontal bars in the picture and the sound is messed up.  Since the HARD drive is a 1 5400 to disc it should be even faster than the DVD player, but it looks like that is the question.  Is there any other driver that I need to get things working correctly from the hard drive?  When I travel, I can't bring DVD in some countries, but the movies on the hard drive are not a problem (normally).  Same thing happens if copied to a flash drive.  Any suggestions?

    Thank you



    Yes, this is the problem because they are two different file systems/structures. Normally you rip the DVD to a correct video file format and view on your computer. Please try:

    The first is very popular.

    Kind regards.

  • Windows XP Home Edition on HP Pavilion a708n desktop computer stops during power on, reads disc once then powers

    Hewlett-Packard Pavilion a708n with Windows XP Home Edition operating system.  I press the power on switch, HP light lights, then a flash of light yellow for the access to the disk, and then off as if I had pressed the on-off switch.  No display on screen.  Power switch is turned off unless I unplug the power supply cord until the green light on the back of the unit turns off.  If I reconnect the power cord, the computer starts as if I had pressed the button / stop playing a disc made, then turns off.  Only change I made before, was that I plugged the power cord directly to wall outlet instead of a surge protector. Maybe a power surge corrupted a file?  The computer is running daily since 2003 without incident, then, of course, that I don't remember what I did with my Wincows XP Recovery disk.  Is it possible that I can make a recovery CD, or do I have to take my computer in a store?

    Hi windbill,

    It seems that there is a power supply for the computer problem.

    I suggest that you wake the computer to the local computer store and check if all cables are connected properly and the computer power supply is correct.

    I hope this helps!

  • HP Pavilion s5570t desktop computer: single SATA hard drive configured as RAID in BIOS

    Our small computer lab has two offices of Pavilion Slimline s5570t that we have recently upgraded to Windows 10. I noticed that in the configuration of the BIOS for the SATA hard drive, it is defined as RAID. I don't know why. The thing that brought this to my attention, is that the software Intel Rapid storage technology constantly shows about 25% CPU use and there high usage of the disk when computers start first which makes them unusable until the software installs.

    My question is can I change the setting of the BIOS SATA AHCI with no problems and that will solve the problem? The Intel rapid storage technology software version is v9.5.7.1002. It is obviously old and I could update, but I wonder if the real issue is the BIOS setting.

    Thank you


    Thank you for the additional information.

    I'm not sure it tells you, but I changed these settings without having to reinstall the operating system.  I suppose it could be correct.

  • How to set the resolution of the Viewsonic VX2235wm monitor with Pavilion a420n desktop computer?

    1 HP Pavilion A420N

    2 Win XP

    3 Control Panel-> display, does not have the optimal screen resolution, 1680 x 1050 at 60 Hz. The selections available only for a lower resolution without the proportions appropriate for this monitor and the screen image is severely distorted.

    4. installed latest version of the BIOS, video drivers, drivers latest installed monitor, the monitor is a Viewsonic VX2235WM

    Can someone help me out?

    Thank you

    Here are the specifications of your HP a420n desktop and its card mother A7V8X - LA Kamet2-GL6E. The edge VIA Unichrome graphics adapter is old and does not support the extensions on the big screen. 800 x 600, 1024 x 768 and 1280 x 1024 resolutions are more likely that will support the computer, which are all the 4:3 aspect ratios. Based on the above specifications, I would say that after buying and installing a AGP 8 X / 4 X (1.5V) graphics card, your system must manage a 16:10 ratio width / Monitor wide screen without problem.
