MSDN chat has a section that once clicked would recognise any available cameras on the computer. Explore through the msn chat setting area to enable the features of video conferencing let chat features achievable.
Windows Vista and 7 ( can't remember about XP ) come with native drivers for the webcam so it may be a problem with these.
You could try running a system file check by browsing to all programs, accessories, right click on the Command Prompt and select 'Run as Administrator'. Type in the following command and hit return.
sfc / scannow
If that doesnt work download and install the software driver for your webcam on the link below.

Here are the steps to use web cam on MSM:-
Log in to your account at the MSN Web site.
Locate the "Webcam" icon underneath your display picture.
Click the "Webcam" icon.
Select "Send My Webcam" to the person that you want to send your video to.
Wait for your chat partner to accept your Webcam invitation. Once he or she accepts it, your live video feed will begin.
Finish sending the video feed by clicking the "Webcam" icon once again.
Open the MSN Messenger program on your computer.
Show or Hide Your Webcam
Open MSN Messenger on your computer.
Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Options" from the drop-down list.
Locate the "Personal" link and click it with your mouse.
Find the "My Webcam" area and either select or de-select next to where it says "Allow Others to See That I Have a Webcam." This is handy for letting those in your chat list know whether you can have a video chat with them--whether or not they have Webcams.
Good luck, do rate the solution if got help
Once you have your webcam working outside of MSN you can then proceed to configure it to the MSN software
Its good practice to disconnect / re-connect the camera to the USB port before you start. Sometimes the camera remains hooked up to a previous program and the MSN software cannot find it.
Connect webcam Open MSN - Windows Live Messenger Click ( > ) Open Menu > Tools > Audio & video set-up - run through Audio > Next - set your camera default - assess webcam quality and use the Webcam Settings to make any refinements > Finish

Hope this helps
as ive told others, make sure u actually turn off the software program that came with the computer before using with msn! u should be able to have it on while using it but for some reason some computers wont allow it! it "tells itself" that there are 2 programs trying to run the web cam when really only one is. but because the program is on, it sees it as being used in 2 places at 2 different times!
try turning off and exiting the software (dell webcam manager) and then go onto msn and try using ur web cam!! make sure the dell manager is exited, then when u have a msn window open, turn the cam on and see if ur friends can see u then..
good luck.. if this doesnt work ill check back and see what i can do for you!
Did you install the software with the camera connected to
the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the
software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it
should work. Hope this is of some help.Bud
