Answers :

I agree, a dummy cam would almost be a hassle to put in compared to a real one. Here is how to check, Use a strong light and look for a flash of red in the very center of the lens. If you see a reddish flare at certain angles then what your seeing is the reflection of the light off the IR filter. This means you have a physical camera and not a dummy. Then you might want to check out " Device Manage" This can be found in the computer properties tab under hardware. If you cannot locate device manager you can go to Control Panel - Administrative Tool - Computer Management - Device Manager, once there look for anything that as a notification indicator, usually a "?" and check to see if it is your webcam that does not have the correct drivers. You may need to go online to find camera drivers for your laptop if this is the case. If you do not see any reddish flare or there is no "?"ed items in Device Manager then you do not have a webcam.
