Check in your Device Manager from the Control Panel. Look for the WebCam under Imaging Devices. Delete it and allow the system to reinstall it by using Scan For New Hardware. If it's detected, open a browser and go to TestMyCam.com (yes, it's safe). If you have video there and not in Skype, remove and reinstall Skype. If it's not redetected in the Device Manager, it's likely broken (yep, they do break).
I think the reason it wont let you install original drivers because they are probably just for Vista OS. You can try going to dell's web site and see is there driver download for it or who ever manufacturer is of your web cam. When you ran upgrade advisor it would have told you that web cam probably would have not worked and would have told you where to go for the driver if available.
Hi. Click Here to download the drivers that you need for your Dell Inspiron 1545. This is for Windows 7 32-bit Operating system, if you have a 64-bit Windows 7 then just change the operating system selection on top area on the dell support website that I provided you. Just download those drivers and install it on your computer and for free. Hope this Helps
1. Double click my computer then double click USB Video Device. You
can see your self then. If the USB Video Device not showing there then
you have to install the cam first.
2. Power On the laptop & after ready your OS for work just put your Dell driver DVD in DVD RW/ROM. when its open, that time just select webcam driver and install it as per your operating system. Usually Dell user's are install Broadcom driver for webcam.
So do it and after finish restart the laptop. Your will see your cam is ready for use. Then follow the first instruction.
Check the device manager and see if the drivers for your webcam is properly installed, you will see a yellow triangle exclamation mark beside the webcam if the driver is not installed properly. You can check the updated drivers at the support website www.support.dell.com. Hope this helps
open your my computer, click on "c" the system will tell you the information is hidden, click on the link and open up the operating system and look in the drivers or there in C and se if you can find you web cam driver, when you find it you might have to force the opening of the driver to install, and once you do that plug your web cam in and see if the system see's it and installs the drivers for the cam, if you installed the driver origanally witht he web cam installed you will have to remove the web cam and unistall the driver and re install it and then plug the web cam back in, and that should help correct the problem.
