The Dell Creative WebCam software should be installed on your machine. to find click on start and type webcam or dell webcam in start search and it will populate the result or else you may find it in the all programs.
if you dont have it there, you may need to install it using the cd which you must have recieved with the computer.

This software can also launch by clicking Start >Programs Files > Dell Webcam > Dell Webcam Central.

to remove it from the computer.
click on start/control pannel (click on the classic view on the upper left hand corner) / programs and features / dell webcam central and then click on uninstall. and then restart the computer and then put the cd in the drive and start the installation. just follow the onscreen instructions and keep clicking next and agree to terms and next and then finish and then restart the computer. it should be up and running.

How to switch on my built in dell web cam... i'm using dell studio lap top.. my OS is windows 7


Hello sir, hi, you definitely need your CD with driver which came with your Dell laptop, Use the CD to install the webcam software driver and application. If you cant find the CD, go to DELL website www.dell.com and download the driver for your webcam, and hopefully the laptop/webcam supports windows 7. If not you may need to wait for the driver.

I cnt detect integrated webcam on dell vostro 1016


check first if the drivers for the webcam are installed. you can do this by:

1. click start and open control panel
2..(if you're using win vista/7), open device manager and click on the plus sign/arrow beside imaging devices. OR (if you're using windows xp, right click on my computer and select properties. under system properties, go to hardware tab and click on device manager)
3. highlight the device under imaging devices and uninstall. restart the computer after.
4. if that does not work or there is nothing showing under imaging devices, you may download the drivers from the dell website: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd&ServiceTag=&SystemID=VOS_N_1015&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=

just make sure you're downloading the driver that is compatible with your operating system

Need drivers webcam for windows 7


Currently there aren't any drivers for your computer with Windows 7. Dell only offers drivers for your computer with Windows XP or Windows Vista. I would try using the Creative Labs Webcam Driver they have for Vista. Since many things about Vista & 7 are similar, often the drivers for Vista will work with Windows 7. Go to dell.com, enter the model of your computer, choose Vista as your operating system, then go to Input Devices, choose the Creative Webcam and download the driver to your desktop (I suggest against using Dell's Download Manager, just download via your browser like you usually would). Then install the driver. With any luck your will be up and running with your webcam.

My webcam is not working. It did work when I first received the computer but for only a short time. I don't even know where to start in order to troubleshoot. I have a Dell Studio laptop


make sure all the latest drivers are installed and you have updated your windows operating system. If this doesn't work then you can try uninstalling the device from computer manager and reinstall it using manufacturers .exe.
