Well this is the site for your laptop and they don't even list a web cam??http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...roduct=3873043 I looked under the original OS Vista I guessed. Does it show up in device manager? If so please click on it>properties>details tab>drop down menu>hardware id>Copy and Paste the string and we'll see about finding a driver for it. Page 7 in the online manual clearly shows an integrated web camera So I don't know why they don't list a driver for it http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01626023.pdf

The imaging device would be a scanner I would guess. Why it isn't picking up your web camera, I don't know was it working before you installed Win 7?
