What kind of webcam is it?
Try running lspci in a terminal and post the results in code tags.

Is it a built in webcam?
In which program did you exactly try this webcam? Did you use CHEESE? It is a Photobooth like program. Install Cheese from the software center and run it. Then check out whether your webcam is detected or not.

Like the previous poster says, the easiest thing to do first is install Cheese and see if your webcam is recognized/working


sudo apt-get install cheese

If your webcam isn't working, then try what Quackers said and post the output of


lspci

so we can take a look
