Windows 7: Cannot Setup Built-in Camera

Cannot Setup Built-in Camera

Hello Masters. I already upgraded my laptop so I could play Counter Strike: Source just like what you have told me on my previous post hehe

Now, I noticed that this laptop has a built-in camera. However, I checked add new scanner or camera device and was not able to locate this webcam. I checked Device Manager and seen something under 'Imaging Device' which is an HP Truevision HD. I was wondering if this is the build-in camera already? If it is, then how could I make it work? Do I need to install another program? I was trying to ask Google to no avail, unless I'm just quite noob with wholesome search techniques. Pardon me.

Or if it is not the HP Truevision, how could I know that this thing is still working or a display and needed to be ignored already? Moreover, I would like to thank you all in advance for checking this post and letting me know what to do. Sorry for this thing, just feeding my curiosity //humbly bows//

Does it work here,

If it does you just need a program to interact with it.
