So I have an HP desktop and am using a HP Webcam 3110 plugged in by USB. The camera worked perfectly before I upgraded my PC to Windows 8. I tried using Skype (in new windows 8 full-screen mode) and the camera didn't work. I then tried the old version of Skype that I had installed on the desktop interface and it worked fine. Then I went back to the new start screen and clicked on the "Camera" icon and it does not recognize the camera as being connected.
This leads me to believe:
- My camera still works.
- The camera works in desktop mode of Windows 8.
- The camera is not recognized in new style of Windows 8.
Any idea how to fix this? I am currently using the most recent driver for the webcam. Just downloaded it today, but no dice.
Anyone else have this issue?
