Re: web cam on latitude e6500

I have same problem. I downloaded the latest webcam driver, installed it. Everything is fine, in the device manager the device are present. But when i try to load the webcam application from dell the device is not present or not installed appear.
Notice: if I try the YM webcam, the device work properly - that's mean the device driver is OK.
So the E6500 is a beautiful great notebook, with poor software.

Possible that the drivers aren't installed. Go to this page for your laptop courtesy of Dell:

Choose the operating system you have then choose input device drivers and choose integrated webcam and install the drivers for it.

Then go into the applications and choose Webcam Software.

After you install the driver and the webcam software then open up the webcam software and it should see the webcam and you'll see yourself in the picture.

Presentation mode disabled on a E6500

When using latitude E6500 try hitting fn+f8 to cycle between presentation modes, duplicate extend, projector only. If using Windows 7 also try win+P.
If these do not work; Right click on the desktop, or go into the control panel and look at the NVidia Control panel settings. There should be an external monitor setup tool.

The Audio in my webcam central won't seem to work can anyone help me fix this problem when i first got my dell it seemed to work but now it doesn't and i want to record a video but the audio won't seem to...

I have a Dell 1545 with Dell web cam central & I've had this issue. The problem is that Dell web cam central installs it's own microphone settings onto your laptop called something like Dell web cam Live!. This isn't the built in microphone in my laptop & maybe not yours either. You have to change the settings for your computer system & Dell web cam central. Go to start> control panel> sound> recording .. on mine there is an option for Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" ... that is the built in mic. You want that for your default & apply it. Then open Dell web cam central & go to the "Record Video's" option. In the middle of this is an orange button with a video camera icon. Next to this on the same button is a little arrow pointing down .. click that. Under microphone .. choose Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" just like the sound option in control panel. I've done this & it's completely fixed. I can record videos with sound & use my built in mic in voice/video chat.
