I can't see anything about it in the BIOS and as far as I'm aware there isn't a physical switch to turn it on.
The things I've downloaded from the Packard Bell site seem to be applications rather than drivers, there's no webcam drivers listed for my model, and as I've said the drivers for a similar model failed and said the camera wasn't recognised and told me to connect a camera and try again.
