it should already be installed, the drivers in such.
Go to Control Panel>System>Device Manager and see if it's in the the list. If it is then it's installed.

Also try going to Control Panel>Devices to try to turn the cam on.

You can also open up the Webcam Program that came pre-installed on your computer, in order to turn the Webcam on.

For example, I have an HP G72 laptop and it came with a Program called Cyberlink YouCam. Through that program, I can play around with my Webcam.

If there was no included program, it will still work with Skype and suchlike. Have you tried that?
