No webcam detected laptop


Try re-installing the webcam driver from here: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/uk/en/ukdhs1/Produc...
(Click the "Drivers & Downloads" tab).

If that doesn't fix it, and there are no driver errors showing in Device Manager (ie no question marks or exclamation marks) then it's very likely that the internal webcam has broken and Windows can no longer detect it.

You can buy an external webcam to overcome that problem.

No webcam detected error on laptop


If it's an external Webcam,please look for Universal Serial Bus controllers in the device manager,are there any device with '?' sign?
and if it's internal please look for a key on the keyboard which has webcam picture on it,usually F1-F12,and then press that key with Fn(function) key at the same time while the computer is on,and try to use the webcam

do a cam/mic test in the audio/video settings in the tools tab in yahoo. Then you need to minimise the yahoo screen and right click on the cam icon in the taskbar and check that the mic and cam are enabled and that it is set to allow other programes to take control of this device
