Try doing a system restore... this will allow you to restore the computer to a time when you know the device was functional. click on help and support type system restore in the search box. select restore my computer to an earlier time. it will open up a calendar pick a day you know your computer was optimal. Don't worry your computer is not being reset to factory config. you are not loosing any work, however if you've installed any third party software or applied any microsoft updates those will be deleted. Not to worry just re-install your software and let windows take its normal course. It will self update.

Hope this helps

My inbuilt cam is not located and working


Hi
Pls go to Device Manager and expand Imaging Devices.
Check if your webcam is detected under Imaging Devices.
If it is not listed under Imaging Devices, Then check if there is any other category 'Other Devices'.
If you find the webcam under Other Devices, uninstall the webcam and restart, the computer.
If that doesnt work, then you can try a System Restore or else format the computer.
If you dont find the webcam anywhere in the Device Manager, then there is a hardware failure with the webcam.

Hi, I could not locate where to update my webcam driver on my LG laptop and secondly,it will indicate that USB Device is not recognised and one of the USB devices attached to this computer has...


If it's an internal webcam,the one on the top of the LCD monitor,look for a key on the keyboard which has a webcam picture on it,usually between F1-F12,but no always
If it's an external webcam,that connected to USB ports,it might be that the problem is the USB,open the device manager
Right click on My Computer and select properties,then click on the Hardware tab and click Device Manager, expand the Universal Serial Bus Controllers by clicking on it,and see if there are any USB device that has "?" sign on it. If there are one,right click on the device and select uninstall,uninstall it and then restart your computer,when the computer turned on,the driver will reinstall automatically
Please let me know if it's works or not

Download the software that worked with your previous OS
Right click on the webcam icon and click 'Properties'
Click the Compatibility tab
Check the box to run in CM and enter the OS in the dropbox
Click Apply and OK
You may need to check additional boxes under 'Settings' but that will be trial and error
Any feedback will be useful.

Usb device not recognize


You mentioned that you uninstalled the unknown device from the Device manager. If you uninstall it then connected your usb flash drive you will see an error again on your device manager. This means that the driver for your usb port is not properly installed.

To install it, visit dell website, look for the model of your machine and locate the driver, download it then install from your machine.

I know this sounds a bit obscure but try following these excact steps.


shut down the computer.
remove battery and ac
reinsert ac
turn on computer and imediatly press F2 several times to access BIOS.
go furthest right in the menu and choose to "set default valuse"
save and exit.
boot up computer completly
shut it down again
insert battery

try the YouCam software wich should now activate the camera and make the led light up orange.
