Considering that you are using the factory shipped software I.E. Quick play / Hp media Smart webcam...
Try the following steps :-
First lets reinstall the webcam driver...
go to device manager > under imaging devices or HID devices you will find the webcam driver > right click and uninstall it.
Reinstall it from the recovery manager > advance options > Hardware driver installation.
you can also download the drivers from
Go to Device manager > click on the + sign beside Universal serial host controllers > right click and uninstall all SB root hubs.
Go to HP.com >> in the search bar type > sp42568
download and install the you cam software. It should resolve the issue.
However if you are using a messenger then try out with yahoo messenger. There are some messengers that do not work. For example : windows live messenger
Hope this helps..
