You use, Quickplay, To access QuickPlay, just press the "blue QuickPlay button" next to the power button. If it doesn't load QuickPlay, just do "Start" - "All Programs" - then you will see QuickPlay listed there. If you still can't find it just do a search, you will find the short-cut.

Once launched QuickPlay, click on the 2nd icon from left (between DVD and TV icon), then double-click on "HP Pavilion WebCam" from the left side panel, then you will see the blue LED light lit and you should see yourself on the screen. (Double-click "yourself" to enlarge image)

To take a picture or record video, just press the corresponding buttons on the top. (the red circle icon is for recording video (press "Stop" icon to stop recording), the camera icon is for, well, camera)
Videos and pictures are saved at:
Pictures -- C:\Users\Public\Pictures\My Snapshots
Videos -- C:\Users\Public\Videos\HP Webcam

Just go to:

C:\Program Files\HP\QuickPlay

and see if you have QuickPlay installed or not.

If yes, then double click on "QP.exe", and that should bring up QuickPlay. And later you can make a shortcut to it.

How can i turn on my webcam of my compaq


Hello Angie,

If you are using Win XP on Compaq laptop then you can access the webcam from my computer. In Win Vista or Win 7 you have to install the software for web cam then you are able to use the web cam. Please download the web cam software from hp web site for particular Compaq model you are using.
