I have problem with my DELL Inspiron N5030 - i cant use my webcamera - dell webcam center reports .*set up could not detect any Dell Webcam central on your system* I have updated drivers, new webcam...


Just for the purpose of isolation, try to download other application that has a webcam application like yahoo messenger or skype. If it still does not work, most probably there might be a loose connection or simply the webcam itself is defective. You might need to contact Dell to have it serviced.
On the other hand if yahoo messenger or skype works, you can either just used these applications or try to reinstall the software (dell webcam manager).

I have a dell laptop and i have a bulit in webcam, i go on msn and my cam wont show when i'm trying to have a video call with someone...i need my cam to work on msn, how do i show it on msn ?


Open the MSN messenger program and click Tools and Options and there should be an option somewhere on there that allows you to choose your webcam.

If that doesn't work, check Start--> and right click on My computer, then click Manage.

Under there click Device manager and verify there is nothing that has a Yellow exclamation point next to it. If so that means that the drivers are not installed and we will have to reinstall them to make the computer recognize the webcam

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


if you have the webcam center opened along with with msn then it wont work on either one of them.
you can try these steps tp check if it works for you or not.

1)look for the web cam center system tray icon and right click on it if its there and select exit

and as u said u cant see you self in web cam console --- in webcam console you can only see your self under the doodling tab and only of your webcam is working at that i.e

either you have the webcam center opened or any other messenger or software which turns on your cam then only ull be able to view your cam in webcam console alongside.

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


as ive told others, make sure u actually turn off the software program that came with the computer before using with msn! u should be able to have it on while using it but for some reason some computers wont allow it! it "tells itself" that there are 2 programs trying to run the web cam when really only one is.
but because the program is on, it sees it as being used in 2 places at 2 different times!

try turning off and exiting the software (dell webcam manager) and then go onto msn and try using ur web cam!! make sure the dell manager is exited, then when u have a msn window open, turn the cam on and see if ur friends can see u then..

good luck..
if this doesnt work ill check back and see what i can do for you!
