LOL, yeah it's plugged in, but probably not compatible with Windows 7. You need to search HP's website for a windows 7 webcam driver for your model computer or you need to try getting it from Chicony's website.

Get onlineand got to In the google search box type: "HPSupport" or "Chicony Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the drivers.You might also try Driver Guide for a Chicony Windows 7 driver at:

How to install PP136AA HP Webcam

  1. Step 1:
    Unplug the webcam from your computer.
  2. Step 2 Install the driver. If you do not have the installation CD, you must download it form the Internet.
  3. Step 3 Step 3:
    Restart your computer, and while restarting plug your webcam back in. Then let your computer install the new hardware automatically.
  4. Step 4 Under you programs you will not have a program to run your webcam, and only have an option to uninstall it. The webcam will work with programs that use a webcam, such as Yahoo Chat. Just have it plugged into your computer and initiate the webcam in that program.
