First install a missing driver, you can download it from the laptop manufacturer website if you don't have the software for it!
for Example if the webcam is from Dell/Toshiba/Acer then visit Dell/Toshiba/Acer/Lenovo website...
First uninstall the older device drivers and then install the latest device drivers. You can also download the latest webcam drivers from the internet and install the new device drivers.
Now go to manufacture site & in the download option, select your model number.
After selecting the laptop model number from site, click on 'Software & Drivers Downloads'.
Now you need to choose your operating system & select the given updates & follow all instructions to download it.
After complete download, install supported driver for your laptop webcam. After install driver, reboot your laptop again and check that your webcam is working properly or not.
I hope it will fix your webcam not working issue if laptop is not facing any hardware issue.
