    Try re-installing the drivers

    it should be flahsed for a momint when open your PC if it is ok as hardware.
    check this point first

    Do you try to open a software that came with your laptop for handling that webcam and it’s not opening? You may try to reinstall it,if you are sure that any of the drivers are updated and is working fine.

    If you use multitude of software that try to access your webcam,then you might had setup one software as default to access it.

    have you checked the cam in the device manager? Have you tried to check it on something like Skype setup to see if that can encourage it to fire? What softward are you using with it?

    if you think your drivers and software are working perfectly, then there might be a fault with your directX or DotNet Frameworks.
    try these two steps.

    Update DirectX ( link guessed that you are using windows 7 )

    check whether you have all the software components installed such as .Net Frameworks.

    if all the above doesn’t work, get a utility which uninstalls software ( try revo uninstaller ) and uninstall both driver and the software. reboot the PC and try to install the software again. carefully go through the installation steps, because you might have skipped a thing or two.
