Dont know how to turn on the web cam or where to find the controls
Most laptops from major manufacturers (HP, Compaq, Sony, Asus, Acer, Dell, Samsung, etc) that come with web cameras will usually have software to control them.
The cameras are off by default unless a program is accessing them. You can use programs like Skype or video / picture capture software or the webcam control software to access the images. You can also use websites like youtube (you need an account, but select upload video, then live web cam) to test the camera.
The web cam software can be found by searching for "cam" usually, but is often in the folder of the manufacturer's name in the start menu. This will have about all the controls there really is for the web camera. Most just come with some novelty filters to change colors or add "artistic" effects to the video / pictures.
Hope this was helpful. Please leave feedback.
