Hi,

By default you will get a webcam software on your computer preinstalled. If you are unable to find the software, then you can instal HP provided free sopftware Cyberlink Youcam on the computer.

If you are using Windows Vista in the computer, you can download and install the Cyberlink webcam software from the following link:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp42501-43000/sp42568.exe
\015\012
\015\012After installing the Youcam software you will get the webcam shortcut on the desktop.

Using youcam:
