There may be chances of ur internal web cm may get problem but before before that u can also try this. This may solve ur problems


go to
Start - Control Panel - Classic view - Administrative tools - Computer Management - Device Manager
and look to see if it shows up on the right, if you see "unknown devices" regarding ur webcam and it's not showing, guess what...it doesn't recogize it.
So, simply go download the driver for it (find it on google or on motherboard site), then go to device manager, and uninstall the device, or simply restart the computer, and it should auto attempt to install it. :) install the drivers properly and u will find it working.

if not solved then problem with ur camera if u want to download drivers than pls follow the foolowing steps

1. you can get your drivers .
just go to ur webcam manufacturing site, click on download section click on drivers, enter its model number and download the camera drivers .
2. If you don't know the webcam drivers cd then connect to internet, uninstall all the old webcam drivers if any. then when pop up window says that new hard driver is found then click it and it will automatically install drivers from net

3. If you want to know about your webcam drivers, then go to desktop
a. right click on my_computer,

b.then select properties, in properties tab click on the HARDWARE tab,

c.then click on the device manager tab, then select and expand the drivers like sound or video which you want to know.

d. right click on the selected sound or display drivers and select its properties.

e. select driver tab and the driver name and version will be before you

for further assistance pls call me:- Thanks & Regard

USB devise not recognized pop up on Inspiron 1525 laptop. I formated the hard drive and reinstalled vista and still pops up. Any help is appreciated.


What device is it? normally it refers to a USB device or sometimes the webcam. go to the device website and download the drivers.
if it is the inbuilt webcam or another internal device the dell website will have all the drivers for your laptop.

Hi , I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and the camera doesn't work ,says reconnect camera ,have tried updating all drivers and software , the diagnostics says 'Fail' and an external camera doesn't work either...


you must have to install the DELL WEBCAM MANAGER along with drivers to use the webcam
make sure you have both the things installed :

1. webcam manager : http://ftp.us.dell.com/app/R168730.EXE
2. driver : ftp://ftp.us.dell.com/input/R165116.EXE

How to turn on webcam in my dell inspiron 1525. but i have default cam driver installed in os. tell me the solution.


Is the webcam being recognized in Control Panel/Device Manager - under 'Imaging Devices'?
Have you tried reinstalling the webcam drivers/software you might have received with the laptop?
You can download the latest versions from the Inspiron 1525 from this link Drivers and Downloads

The Dell 'Webcam Manager' software is listed under 'Applications', and the drivers are listed under 'Input Device Drivers' (integrated webcam).
Select the appropriate OS version (i.e. Vista 32bit), download and install those two (drivers first)

Note: When you click the respective download links, don't use the Dell Download Manager!! It's known to cause various problems. Use the 'download in internet browser' option instead.
