Since there is no power button or desktop icon for the webcam, the only way to test and use the webcam is to open a webcam application.

You can use the HP MediaSmart suite for Windows 7 which includes a webcam application. HP MediaSmart Webcam can record videos, take photos, etc.

For more details and step by step instructions to use HP MediaSmart, click this link.

Also, you can set up and use the HP Webcam in messenger programs like Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AOL Messenger, Skype, etc. For set up and usage instructions for messenger programs, click here.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: cant access webcam on my hp 625

If it is an internal webcam (the one on the top of the monitor) look for a key on your keyboard,which has a webcam picture on it,then press the key and Fn (function) key at the same time when you're on the desktop
If it is an external webcam (which connected to the USB ports) go to Device Manager by right clicking on My Computer,select Properties,on the Properties window click on Hardware tab,then click Device Manager. Or if you are using windows Vista or windows 7,you can type "device" on the start menu and select Device Manager
On device manager window,expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers and see if there are an USB which has "?" sign on it (or any sign)
Then right click on the signed device (if there are one) and select uninstall,follow the uninstall process and restart your computer
The computer will reinstall the driver automatically
Please let me know if it's working

MY built in webcam doesnt work for my lenovo y430 laptop

Well depending on the model of your laptop I'm assuming, since you said it was a built in webcam, you may want to visit the manufactures website and see if they offer a driver download for your particular model on their support page. If there is not a download there contact me with the make and model of your computer and I will assist you in finding and installing the correct driver in order to get the device functioning.
