First of all, is this webcam installed inside your monitor or an external one?
Internal webcam: go to the manufacturer's website for your laptop and download the driver for your webcam
External webcam: download the driver that came with the cd, or go to the manufacturer's website for an updated driver.

Webcam not working


Which application are you using?

Make sure you have the video turned on in the webcam software or the application software that you are using. For example if you are using Yahoo Messenger, then you have to tell it to turn the video on.

How do i use webcam


You just click on the webcam application to launch it and you'll see yourself on the lcd screen. Is your problem that you can't find the application program? Some manufacturers make it hard to find. If it's not on the desktop look inside your program list. Click Start/Programs and then look for any reference to camera or webcam. Also look inside the manufacturer folders in the program list, it might be hidden there. Sometimes they put it into something like a folder or Application called Entertainment Experience or similar.

You can always download Manycam and install it. Go towww.google.com and in the search box type: "download.cnet.com"(without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When thesite opens look down on the left and you will see a gray area that says FindSoftware. Type "Manycam" (without the quotes) in the whitesearch area then hit the search mirror. When it brings back your resultslook for the one that says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it andinstall it. Make sure you remove the check box on any junky programs itwould like to install. You only want to install ManyCam, no additionswhatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use,and you will always know where your webcam software is.

My webcam does not work properly. it turns on, but when viewing it the screen is just black.


There could be multiple causes to this. I'll start off with the basics.

1) The software code for your webcam has somehow misaligned itself and you need to reinstall your webcam drivers. Go to the manufacturer's website and update the drivers.
2) Some webcams have a cover on them. It's hard to notice, but it's basically there to protect the lens. Open up this cover and it should work again.
3) It could be completely software-related. If neither of the above steps are working, then try reinstalling the application.
4) If your webcam is an internal one, the best thing you can do is uninstall the webcam through the Device Manager (Imaging Devices), then reinstall it
Hope some of these steps solve your problem. If they don't, post a response here. I'll be happy to assist you further.

How to turn on webcam in my dell inspiron 1525. but i have default cam driver installed in os. tell me the solution.


Is the webcam being recognized in Control Panel/Device Manager - under 'Imaging Devices'?
Have you tried reinstalling the webcam drivers/software you might have received with the laptop?
You can download the latest versions from the Inspiron 1525 from this link Drivers and Downloads

The Dell 'Webcam Manager' software is listed under 'Applications', and the drivers are listed under 'Input Device Drivers' (integrated webcam).
Select the appropriate OS version (i.e. Vista 32bit), download and install those two (drivers first)

Note: When you click the respective download links, don't use the Dell Download Manager!! It's known to cause various problems. Use the 'download in internet browser' option instead.

You have an application that is grabbing the webcam on bootup, so the best way is to disable this program from runnning. To do this, click Start - Run and type "msconfig" and press enter.

Click on the Startup tab and this will bring up a list of all the things you have booting. Look for webcam manager, and remove the checkmark beside it. Click Ok and then reboot. Problem should be solverd
