On it's site, HP doesn't appear to support Win* for this model or have the drivers. Generally, Windows 8 will find or have the drivers it needs to run any reasonably new system. But occasionally non critical hardware, like Cameras, Win8 will not have the correct driver for it. Go to HP forums on their web site to see if someone else had done the same & found a solution - or if you can find out who actually makes the camera, goto that companies website.
