Check to see if the wires are all plugged in (If it's not built in)
Check if it's on :pi:
Check your webcam settings, if you're on a website that you're trying to use this on, try right clicking, click on setting, and got to the webcam tab at the bottom of the little box, and check the mic tab too. If none of that works, sorry, that's all I can do for help.
OH! One more thing, check to see if it has a protective cover/film over it.

I think I had this problem with mine, (same make of laptop) the webcam just needed an updated driver. I think you can get those online easily.
