Question about Dell VOSTRO SLIM TOWER and , MONITOR 19 inch Widescreen E198WFP Analog Flat Panel - Intel?® CoreTM2 ... PC Desktop

1 Answer

I don't know where or how to hook up a web cam to this monitor.

I can't find anyplace on the monitor to attach a web cam. I am not very computer savvy but it seems other monitors have a place on the top of the monitor to install a web cam. This one does not.
Could you tell me where it is and suggest a good, inexpensive web cam. The monitor number is, Dell 19 inch E198WFP
Thank you for you help

That model of the dell monitor you have is very skinny, you need something that can sit on top comfortably.

I suggest the Logitech Communications Deluxe as shown here courtesy of Logitech:

Its a webcam that has good quality video and one that I've used in the past. You'll notice the way its shaped that it will sit and conform to the natural shape of your monitor.

Hook up to home pc


Today's laptops and desktop computers are more user-friendly. As more people start use computers, operating systems, software and hardware accessories are coming with better instruction manuals and streamlined interfaces. Here are a few basic steps to hook up your computer no matter which brand you bought.

Connect the power cable to the back of the computer tower. The male end of this plug is often on the computer, but it is recessed into the casing. Once this power plug is connected, you don't want to plug it into an outlet until the entire computer is set up. Attach the monitor cables to the back of the monitor and then to the back of the computer tower. This cable will probably be the VGA type, which has a wide set of prongs in the middle and two screws on the outside. Be sure to twist the screws in to ensure the cable has a solid connection. Secure the monitor's power cable to the back of the monitor and then plug it into an outlet or power strip. Attach the mouse to the USB port on the back of your keyboard. The keyboard then plugs into another USB port on the back of the computer tower. Turn on the computer and the monitor.

If the computer powers up but the monitor doesn't display anything, make sure the VGA monitor cable is secured. If the status light on your monitor doesn't turn on, check the power cable connection. Check that the mouse and keyboard work once the computer turns on. Now you can hook up other devices, such as a printer or a web cam. A printer often can connect to a USB port and also may have its own power cable; a web cam usually just plugs into a USB or firewire port.

Try copying the files on the disc to a folder and run them from there. Open the folder you saved the files in then double click the setup.exe icon and see if it completes the installation. If that does not work then try downloading the files from the radio shack web site.
