"Lost" is lil confusing, lost physically, stopped working or rather not spinning or data lost?

If data appears 'lost' and if you have not formatted the drive, by connecting to another working drive as a slave, you can recover the data. If the disk stopped spiining there are h/disk speacialists, who can help you in retrieving the data. Try this beofre anything, press F8 at the tme of booting, select option, "safe mode with command prompt", run scandisk. Most of the normal problems get resolved this way.

The problem you are having seems that the driver for your webcam has become corrupt and therefore unresponsive. What you can do is that you should reinstall the webcam driver and it will fix the problem, This drivers are usually provided with the webcams in the form of a disk or a mini disk. If you have lost the disk then no worries, you can download the driver software from the internet.

Good Luck!

Error: ''Disk Defragmenter can't start''

I think there's a problem with ur hard disk file allocation/sectors. What you'll do is
  1. Press "Ctrl+R" --> type "cmd" --> hit Enter
  2. Now type "chkdsk /f"
  3. It will tell you that it will run the chkdsk the next time you restart your computer.
  4. Then do a restart. This will fix your problem.
For more detailed inforamtion about chdsk(Check Disk) will be at Chope
But then, windows defragger is not fast and not clean too.

I'll suggest you to use some free disk defragmenters like Auslogics.
It is way better than windows Defragger ;)
