Normally the webcams come with a round sound port along with the USB port .. so in case if that is the case you will have to plug the round port in the pink/reddish port at the back of the system. and if you did not recieve the round port on the webcam then if the drivers are installed properly for your webcam go to control panel -> sounds-> go to Audio tab and under recording devices change the audio from what you have to the USB webcam if there is one.
That is what I have got for you.

Most of the Web cams dont have build in mic, but if you had it with your cam, try to plug in the red plug at the back of your CPU in the red plug in beside the green plug in. use plug and play wizard that helps you to try the mic of your cam if it really works.

When I try to start my web cam I keep getting this message about web cam driver did not work restart camera or computer. I have restart my computer too many time and still does not work.

It sounds like you need to update your driver for the web cam.
Step 1: Go to device manager
Step2: Find the web cam in the device list
Step3: Open Properties
Step4: Have the device manager search for driver.

Other option:
with the web cam unplugged from computer, in device manager uninstall the web cam, restart computer, then plug web cam into computer and let OS find and install drivers.
