Windows can't find any hard drives...when installing xp

It sounds possible that your Windows XP install CD does not contain the necessary hard disk device drivers for the drive used in your Dell Vostro laptop and you would need to load these drivers separately during the XP install when the option is given to use third-party device drivers.

Some laptops may provide options in their BIOS settings to use a compatibility mode of operation for newer SATA hard drives that will make them visible to bootable utilities such as disk imaging software and older OS install CD's.

If your HDD will not recognized during installation you need to check if your HDD is detected. Try to look at your BIOS if it is detected. IF the HDD will not detected you need to replace the cable, try to use the other slot of your SATA or IDE ports.

Is the Web cam driver properly installed?

If no, go to windows start button, point to computer, right click computer, clice manage, click device manager.

If you see an exclamation point or X mark sign you need to re-install the driver for your webcam. If you have a cd-installer, just put the cd on the dvd rom drive then run it. If you dont have an installer cd you can download the driver from the Dell site.
