I had the same problem, work around is easy - Power managment option enable powering all USB port at all times. That should bring your webcam back to life again. You thank you me later. ;-) As i mentioned this is just workaround, I solved this problem installing drivers in correct order, so Dell Vostro USA chipset all 5 then i have instaled program called slim drivers and fund good drivers for USB Ports (most recent) then i aplied all crap from windows update. The driver itself for webcam has nothing to with the problem i believe (its all driver from 2006) the problem is more about system percepction of webcam as exyternal device hooked up to usb port thats why power management interfere with it. And last thing if you mess up already with original driver and cannot install it then remove not working driver using device manager. Deatach laptop from power supply remove battery, and try switch it on; hold the button for 30 second up to 1 minute. then plug everything or just power cord switch on windows automatically detect device and will instal the driver from 2006.
Try to rotate the web camera lens adjustment knob. It controls the images quality of the camera. It is located in the front face of the cam. But if nothing happens right then take your camera back from the store you bought it.
With your webcam plugged in get to the Device Manager. Make sure your View is set to ?Devices by type? this may vary according to your operating system. Locate any device with a YELLOW exclamation point or question mark next to it. Right click and choose Update Driver. At the next prompt click "No, not this time". At the next prompt click on "Install from a list or specific location". Finally with your installation CD in the CD ROM drive at the next prompt click on "Search removable media" and click Next. Once the driver is installed you can try to use the webcam again.
