m3800 webcam not working

Hello I am running Ubuntu 14.04 and my webcam is not recognized. It used to work fine but recently it is not working. I got my screen replaced by dell and also the motherboard and heatsinks for a different issue.

Here is my lsusb output:

RE: m3800 webcam not working

For some reason I am not able to edit my question so here is some more info.

I ran: 

sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`

and this is my result:

Examining /etc/kernel/header_postinst.d.
run-parts: executing /etc/kernel/header_postinst.d/dkms 3.16.0-53-generic /boot/vmlinuz-3.16.0-53-generic
Error! The dkms.conf for this module includes a BUILD_EXCLUSIVE directive which
does not match this kernel/arch. This indicates that it should not be built.
