My integrated webcam isnt working. Everytime i open it it says we cant find your camera .The error code says 0xA00F4244<NoCamerasAreAttached>. I cant find the camera listed in the device manager.

Is the camera listed within device manager? If not then check further under View>Show hidden devices.
Some suggestions:
Have you allowed apps to access the camera (& microphone) under Settings>Privacy?
Is there a key which if clicked will disable the camera?
What’s the make & model of the laptop?

Just double check that it hasn't been disabled in the BIOS. I routinely do this for the cameras on netbooks. (That was before 2020 and all the Zoom meetings!)

Try this, switch the laptop off, disconnect the power cable, hold down the power button for 30 seconds, then switch it on again.
