Re: the camera on my laptop does not work
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.

GOOD luck
Try this, 1. Check your Windows Device Manager and see if all hardware is recognized and installed properly. 2. It might be that the hardware is recognized as a camera, but the right drivers are not installed. The yellow explanation mark will indicate a problem. 3. In that case you can try to update the drivers. Right-click the device, and in the popup menu select Update Driver Software. Then follow the instructions on screen, but make sure you allow Windows to search the web for updated drivers.
Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
