Thanks a lot Herve. Finally, I can make my webcam work
although it doesn't exactly come from your solution.
Now I have another question. I tried to follow the
instruction that you gave me with pwc driver but it
didn't work. In the instruction, the final step was
"sudo depmod -a". I didn't do "sudo modprobe pwc".
Without doing that, Is pwc installed in my laptop? The
problem is I want to uninstall pwc from my laptop. So
I did "sudo modprobe -r pwc", but when I checked the
files /lib/modules/`uname
-r`/kernel/drivers/media/video/pwc, hey are still the
same. How can I check if pwc is really uninstalled
from my laptop? I just want to make my laptop clean.

BTW, for the solution that I get my webcam worked is
to download gspca driver from
and follow the instruction of installing at 
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Spca5xx but just
changed spca5xx by gspca. It's so great, isn't it?
