I have windows 8 installed on dell Inspiron 15 3521. I did not find any drivers for windows 8 webcam. Do I need some drivers for it or not? I have windows 8 pro 9200 build.

Check device manager if the driver is already installed. Also what you can try, a lot of times drivers from Vista/7 suit Windows 8 just as good – Ashtray Aug 28 '13 at 10:59
Have you tried the drivers you could find? Some Windows 7 drivers can work on Windows 8. If those don't work then your likely going to need different hardware, hardware that supports Windows 8, if you want to use a webcam. – Ramhound Aug 28 '13 at 12:43

Dell offer a diagnostic tool which will automatically scan your machine and either fix or recommend fixes etc

Follow this link to the Dell PC Diagnostics page and see if this detects and fixes the issue.
