As far as i know CQ56 doesnt have a webcam. but you could try to check it in device manager. if you see any imaging device then you have a webcam. if you don't see one then you don't have it. most of the CQ56 units seems to have a webcam on the display panel on top of the LCD but it really doesn't exist. please let me know what happened in device manager.

You can't put a webcam if the product line doesn't have a webcam. No easy way around it. Either the product line had webcam option or not. Your only other option is to check eBay and see if they have a bezel with webcam and buy that and the webcam and attach it to your current laptop. But you need to make sure your board also has the connections for the webcam as some might not come with the connection so that would eliminate your options to place a matching aftermarket webcam for the laptop. So if your not sure of the webcam connection on the board you need to take apart the laptop and look for it before trying to add webcam option should it turn out the board doesn't have that connection.
