Webcam "Not ON" for Compaq Presario CQ62 215DX.

I got YouCam 4 as the upgrade and it says:

 

No Webcam detected. Try plugging in a webcam into your computer now. If you are using an intergrated camera, make sure that it is turned on.

 

My thing is is that I don't know how to turn it on. Also, in Device Manager, there is no Imaging Devices if that helps. I've had this computer for almost a month and had this problem since day one. I called Tech Support and he did not help me at all solving my problem.He said it's a "manufatcuring issue that cannot be fixed." I am willing to fix this so can somebody help me?

 

* Yes this product has a microphone & and webcamera too.

Not really sure but i think it doesnt have a webcam since there is no imaging device on device manager nor your product details. here. It might be one of those models that has a dummy webcam lens, you might need to get that webcam seperately.

Well, if its a fake or not there at all, why is there a little glass like thing in the middle? It makes it look like a web camera.

As what the HP tech said its a "manufacturing defect that cant be fixed". I gues what they mean is its built that way. They cant send  you a webcam hardware because it didnt come with the computer in the first place. The glass like thing you see on top is really a hole for the webcam. But you dont have the hardware for it. You have to buy the built in webcam to fit there.

 

If you wanna make sure its not a hardware issue, consider reformatting windows. It there isnt an imaging device after reformat, theres really no webcam built in.

Thank you. I'll ask my uncle to help me look at that, and I never thought of reformatting everything.
