    Hiya morgansssss,

    Right mate do you have all the Quickplay software. If so all you need to do is goto Start, Computer, Devices, Hardware. At the top of the page you will see System Devices. Click it.

    You will then see a window just like XP. Hit the hardware tab then scroll down to the USB line.

    Once there you should see "USB composite device". Right click on it and choose Enable.
    There will be a pause as the device is enabled.

    You will then need to scroll up a little and find "imaging devices". Right click on "HP Webcam" and enable it.

    That should sort it out. If not let us know.... Hope that helps. Peace(y)
