Hi scottie_dorn,
this isn't a webcam, it's an ambient light sensor, I'm afraid. Just to make sure: assuming that you're running a Windows-system, please open the device manager and have a look at "Audio, Video..." whether there is an entry regarding a webcam. I'm pretty sure, there isn't one... Greetings from Germany,
PS: Please don't forget to rate this solution after you've tested it out! Thanks in advance and have a nice day!

I'm trying to connect to internet via wifi and it's asking for a device password. what is that? this is a d430 dell.

I suspect the device that is asking for a password will be your wireless router. Normally, the password, or key, is printed on a label on the side or bottom of the router.
