The information regarding the webcam is not in the lspci output.   As
Beta pointed out it should show up in 'lsusb' output.

Share the output for 'lsusb'

A quick compare with similar lines for my laptop shows


uvcvideo               72627  0
videodev               98259  1 uvcvideo
v4l2_compat_ioctl32    17128  1 videodev


I don't know if "v4l2_compat_ioctl32" module.

Alternately, you should be able to see /dev/video0 if your webcam
driver is functioning properly.   Absence of this device suggest the
hardware is not well supported even though lsmod shows modules loaded
for it.
