Why isn’t my built-in webcam working?

How do I get my built in webcam to work? I have an eMachines E340 series. Please help!

    If you're on a Windows OS, check that the device is enabled in (should be classified as an imaging device) in your Control Panel's Device Manager.
    If so, try searching on Google for updated drivers for your webcam.

    Hello, was it working properly before?  Did it just stop working?  Have you checked device manager to see if there is a problem with your drivers/device?

    It helps if you specify your operating system, since the procedure for windows is different to linux etc..
