  1. "I have tried almost all drivers available at HP website"

    You need the HP Webcam Software for that laptop model.
    It's not listed under the Drivers category. Go here:

    Go here and select your Windows version: http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/public/psi/swdHome/?sp4ts.oid=4095873&ac.admitted=1382117641728.876444892.492883150

    From the "Download index", click the first "Software" link.
    You should now see HP Webcam Software (International)

    There are two versions, top one is the latest so try that first (1.0.26.3
    9 May 2011)

    Any problems with it, uninstall and try the older version (1.0.17.4
    18 Dec 2009)
  2. Thank you very much...

    I tried this software and while installing, it crashes with an error "setup has determined that your configuration doesn't support any of the included product". I have made sure that camera is enabled from BIOS and a yellow unknown device icon is still present. Please help me as I am running out of ideas

    I missed this driver first time round, maybe you did too?: HP Universal Camera Driver (International)

    Go back to the page where you select your OS version:
    http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/public/psi/swdHome/?sp4ts.oid=4095873&ac.admitted=1382194477974.876444892.199480143

    Click on your Windows version (make sure you click 64-bit or 32-bit as appropriate).

    In the "Download index" click "Driver - Keyboard, Mouse and Input Devices"

    The first driver in that category is "HP Universal Camera Driver (International)". Click "Download" for that item.

    Install it.

    After installing that driver, you may have to re-install the software item you installed yesterday HP Webcam Software (International) but I'm guessing there, just trying to cover all possible avenues of fixing your problem.
