Dell inspiron 17" webcam not found by computer

Hello! My mom has a dell laptop, about two years old, with no prior problems. When we're on skype she can't turn her webcam on, and when she does a search for it the computer can't locate it. The first time she used it it worked fine and since then there's absolutely no luck. Other forums mention this one-time success. Anyone know how to turn it on or is it a hardware malfunction on dell's part? Thanks in advance!

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).
