The link I provided in my earlier for the Logitech Quick Cam 9000 pro is to software that works for all Logitech cams. Below is a link to the Logitech C 250 it is the same software. Webcam C250 <---------------------- link to software Select full installer from the dropdown box where is says select file. This software will include the latest drivers as well as the software you want. It will also install Logitech Vid a, Logitech video messaging program similar to MS's Live Messenger. All Logitech C series cams use this software, software version 2.10.1224.0. Again this software works with all Logitech cams including builtin . There is a strong possibility that all your builtin cams are Logitech products despite being called HP webcam. Logitech supplies builtin cams for the notebook\netbook industry. The above software works with my Acer Orbicam made by Logitech. It can't hurt to install this software to try it. It is free and you can uninstall it if it doesn't work. What you describe in your last paragraph is Win 7 detecting the plug in cam and loading drivers for it. You absolutely can download the software direct from Logitech. See the link above. BTW, if you right click the webcam entry under imaging devices in Device Manager and choose properties you can determine the manufacturer of your builtin cameras. It is most likely a Logitech product.
