Question about Computers & Internet
If the Web cam was Generic, or even Brand name, and it came with a Drivers disc (this would mean that it is not plug and play), try completely uninstalling the Driver software for the web cam. After the uninstall has finished, reinstall the drivers, taking extra care to follow ALL on screen instructions to the T. If at some point there were other web cams, and the drivers that belonged to those cams installed on the computer, be sure to fully uninstall all of them. Only use the cam and the drivers that you are attempting to install. After all of that, the cam should work just fine.
If for some reason the cam does not work after reinstalling the drivers, try a different brand of web cam. The computer that the drivers are attempting to operate on may not be adequate to support those drivers. If that's the case, try a generic, cheaper web cam as I said.
Also: While powering up the cam, don't run anything unnecessary.
Hope this helps.

the driver software from the web. As you have not mentioned your Webcam make
and Operating System you are using, I am unable to give you the direct download
link. However you can download the same by visiting the website of the company
that manufactured the PC.
Even here you need to be careful
to download the correct software for your PC. You need to be exact with the
Webcam Model number and the OS that you are using.
After you have downloaded the driver, to install just plug in the webcam on to your PC and then Double click on the driver setup.exe file and go on clicking 'Next' until you get the 'Finish' option and restart the PC.
