My e525 does not recognise it has an intergrated webcam nothing appears under devices and is not detected by Messenger.

I own the same make and model, while there is a faceplate for a cam the e525 does not have one installed, it is available for aftermarket installation however.

Cannot find out if my laptop v50s1 has built in webcam

That model should have an integrated webcam. You should be able to access the cam by clicking your start button, then go to the control panel and look for devices. The camera should be listed as one of your devices, double click the camera.
