Hey I'm new here and I don't know much about computers and all. My Pavilion dv3 is only about a year old and my webcam was working perfectly fine until recently, it stopped working. It doesn't work on msn, skype, blogtv etc as those programs mentioned will crash. So I tried opening HP MediaSmart Webcam and it says it has stopped responding. Sometimes when the webcam DOES work, it will only work for a couple of seconds before the entire computer crashes. I don't know what the problem is and I tried to reinstall HP Mediasmart. The installation won't even start.
I did a full virus scan and there's nothing wrong with it. I'm at loss and I don't know what to do. Help?
