Tina,
goto to Device manager and see if there is any yellow marked or red marked icon.

  1. If there is red-marked then that device made disabled and so you can't access it. To make it enable just right click on it and select Enable from pop-up appeared.
  2. If there is a yellow-marked icon, that means you have some missing driver, so making re-install that driver will fix the problem.
Fin out in control panel if there is any settings for your device i.e. for cam if yes then check it out.

You can also check in Task Manager that if there is any program which might use cam, if yes then you can close that program.

If still problem just Ask me
Thanks
Iqbal
