Try using the Webcam Manager. If you are not able to fix the problem using the Webcam Manager that already installed in your Laptop, you need to uninstall it and reinstall again. To do so, try the following.

To install the correct Webcam software, you need to first update the drivers. Go to Control Panel, select “Devise Manager”, choose “Imaging Devices”, double click “Integrated Webcam”, select the “Driver” tab on the top and click on “Update Driver” option. Once you double click on this option, it runs and bring all that devices installed in your laptop. You can see the message “Application already installed in your computer”. In the bottom, you can find a message as “For Reinstalling Dell Webcam Central Software”. Click on this option to reinstall that, you will be required to reboot again. After this, you can find the option “Dell Webcam Central” in your “Start” button. Click this option and wait, it will bring the icon in the right hand side of the system tray screen. That’s it, you can double click on the icon and open it.

Hope this helps.

You are simply missing a driver, you should download it from the manufacturer website if you don't have the software for it!

For example if the webcam is from Dell then visit Dell website...

First uninstall the older device drivers and then install the latest device drivers. You can also download the latest webcam drivers from the internet and install the new device drivers.

Now go to Dell website and click download option, select your model number.

After selecting the laptop model number from site, click on 'Software & Drivers Downloads'.

Now you need to choose your operating system & select the given updates & follow all instructions to download it.

After complete download, install supported driver for your Dell laptop webcam. After install driver, reboot your laptop again and check that your webcam is working properly or not.

I hope it will fix your webcam not working issue if your Dell laptop is not facing any hardware issue.

Dell insiprion 1545 audio driver for xp not installing. 1545 is designed for vista and am trying to load xp


Try installing the driver from the Dell WEB site.
You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, thesupport download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operatingsystem. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Upgraded my dell inspiron 1545 from vista to windows 7, now my web cam doesn't work nor will it let me install the original drivers? I've tried the root clean up and connecting a usb cable, no luck


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.

Web cam problems


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

Dell inspiron 1545 laptop and the same webcam problem.


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.

Driver for webcam


If you haven't reinstalled vista then the web cam should be listed in the control panel under scanners and cameras. If vista has been reinstalled here is a link to the web cam driver

Web cam does not work


People will give you many solutions like Re-installing your web-cam driver or repair it using its CD.

But I recommend you to RESTORE your system to factory settings by using Dell's Restore Wizard.

It will eliminate all such problems from your laptop.
Have a good day.
