Read this article on disabling the automatic restart option on system failure:

In this case, the error codes will likely say to update drivers for the webcam, as mostafaz said. I think it's a good idea to disable this option anyway if a future problem arises.

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.

There's also a remote possibility (which I've come across only once before) that your power supply is on it's way out.

When you connect your webcam, it pulls a bit more power from the system and it trips.

If you have (or can borrow) another PSU - preferably with a higher wattage than your current one - try swapping them and trying again.
