Mine is right in the center above the monitor. Assuming you are running VISTA, I think if you go to Control Panel, you'll get some guidance. You can always go to the Microsoft Help or the HP Help guides.

I turned mine on quite by accident while learning "Skype". I'm setting up my account, and all of a sudden I'm looking at this odd looking creature staring back at me. Then I realized it was ME. VERY SCARY!!!!!!

If you have Yahoo, you can turn your cam on if you are in Yahoo Messenger.

You can also type in "webcam" in the search box that comes up when you click on the windows logo in the lower left of your tray at the bottom of the moniitor.

Hope this all helps!

P.S. Let me know if you succeeded!!

Mycompaq presario c769 us get hot so much

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

I have a compaq f730us laptop with nvidia graphics card, I thought the card was nvidia 6100 but the nvidia 6100 drivers refused to install. How can i find the card type and card drivers for windows 7.

To find the complete hardware specs of your pc just install and run PC Wizard -
For the drivers it will be a lot trickier :normally you should use only the drivers supplied by your manufacturer. Since there aren't ready yet for you model you could try googling for similar laptops and try their  drivers.
