When you go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers, do you see an webcam icon? It probably won't say HP Webcam but more likely "USB Composite Device". If it isn't there, you'll need to install driver software for the webcam to function. If it is there then right click the icon, click on Properties and look at the General and Hardware tabs to make sure you see HP Webcam in there. You may also want to check to see if it states that the "device is working properly".
Your Dell Latitude E6400 laptop comes with a built-in webcam at the top of the LCD screen. This camera can take still pictures and record video for use with video messaging. You can access the camera via a software program already installed on the computer. This program can be accessed right from the desktop screen.
1.Turn on your Dell Latitude and click on the "Start" tab on the main desktop screen. A list of options will appear in a drop-down window. 2.Click "Dell Webcam" from the list of options in the window. 3.Click on "Dell Webcam Center" and the program will open. A capture window will appear on screen. Beneath the capture window will be a control panel. 4.Click on the camera icon to take a still photo. 5.Click on the "Record" button to record video with the webcam. I hope you find it helpful. Best regards.
Click the "Start" button. Click on "All Programs" and then click "Quick Play." The Quick Play main menu will appear.
Click the "Music, Video,
Pictures" application icon. This button looks like a headset, film and
photos. The "Music Video Pictures" page will appear.
Double-click "HP Webcam" from the "Source" list. The webcam application will open.
Double-click the webcam screen
and it will open to full page view. Press the "Esc" key on the keyboard
to restore the webcam screen to smaller view. Click the "Record" button
at the bottom of the screen to record video using your webcam.
Click the camera icon at the bottom of the screen to take a snapshot. Find your pictures in a folder named "My Snapshots."

You'll survive this one, I daresay. How's it going as far as the USB plug? Maybe the power fell out of the USB hub or the webcam and you get to reconnect that as well as the USB connection? If things aren't perfect then, try going into control panels and seeing if the OS lists the webcam among the A/V devices.
Sometimes USB ports go bad, sometimes the power thing falls out and throws me for a loop, sometimes it's just a virus and you need to stop deferring the antivirus scans and such (or run one; just pick a trusted source, or for example refer to articles etc. at theregister.co.uk or MaximumPC.com) so your system can heal up and recognize the USB ports the virus was thinking of commandeering. Sorry about that run-on sentence.
For that you have to uninstall all usb drivers from computer then it automatic installed. Right click on my computer icon then click on property then click on hardware then device manager. In
device manager you can see all driver list.Go to usb controllers then
uninstall all usb driver 1 by 1 when you right click on usb driver
click on uninstall. Then restart computer then check. If still face same issue then right click on my computer icon then click on manage then go to disk management Then removable storage check you find there your drive if you find then explorer it. Also check in bios that USB Legacy 2.0 is enabled.
Webcams are usually just plug into a usb port on your computer, older ones prior to usb used a serial port. It's the software that needs instalation, if you didn't get software with it, you can use it with msn mesenger Icq, or any of the popular messenger services, or myspace, any application that uses video will seek out our cam. Also most photo programs and some email programs like comcast have video email, it just finds your cam and you click on the icons.
If your webcam has a USB interface, there may be issues with the port. Try all your USB ports. Some USB terminals do not fit well with the USB ports. You may also try installing your hardware in other computers if you have access and find out if it works.
