Hello sklim 123:

           Open up HP Touch Smart software program. On the carousel swirl it until you see the web-cam icon tap it .Version 3 software will be in the on bottom row of icons slide icons until you see web-cam icon drag web-cam up and in center of screen and tap it. Or you can do a program search Just type in webcam in program search box.You will see it above listed clickf it.

Re: can't access integrated webcam

i have tried to open up HP Touch Smart program and swirl it until the web-cam icon. After i tap it, i receive the following message:

 

no video device detected. Please plug in a video device in your computer. if you are using an integrated camera please make sure that it is turned on. 
How we ensure the webcam is turned on? For my understanding, it should be always on.
