    We need some more details, please.

    When you open the camera, do you see yourself or the view in front of the screen? Is it built in or an add on camera?

    What are you doing to take a picture? Specific button presses on the keyboard or the capture button in the Camera App?

    When I open the camera I see the front of the screen and it is a built in camera. My computer is a HP ProBook 6550b. And I havent actually taken a picture yet cuz I dont need a picture of my computer screen lol but I would use the capture button in the app.

    That is super odd... I never heard of a webcam being used for screenshots.

    I would suggest in the search box on task bar, type in "Device Manager" > open device manager (control panel) from the results > find Imaging devices on the list and expand that category. Uninstall all devices marked "webcam."

    Reboot. See if it installs new devices. If not, open device manager again > click Action, then scan for new hardware > scroll to Imaging devices and expand. Then search for drivers for the newly found devices if they still don't install.

    I have searched around and it is hard for me to find out on HO what actual webcam device they built into that notebook.
