Try updating the drivers to your web cam device. If that does not work out try finding more information, if you find error numbers or error messages you can identify the problem a little better. If you are using the software that came pre-installed for the web cam you can also try to download a different program that is integrated for all different webcams, such as ManyCam.

Check the device manager and see if the drivers for your webcam is properly installed, you will see a yellow triangle exclamation mark beside the webcam if the driver is not installed properly. You can check the updated drivers at the support website www.support.dell.com. Hope this helps

MY DELL INTEGRATED WEBCAM HAS BEEN WORKING BEAUTIFULLY. BUT NOW, WHEN I'M FILMING, I NOTICE THE FILM SEEMS TO BE SLOWING AND SPEEDING UP SO THAT THE FINAL FILM HAS JUMPS IN IT. IT'S VERY FRUSTRATING.


This can happen for several reasons :
1 - Multiple applications running in the backgroud (Antivirus / Spyware etc...)
2 - Internet activity, slowing the processor.
3 - Lack of space / Poor fragmented drive.
4 - Drivers may be corrupted
Corrective Actions
1 - Close any 'unwanted / redundant applications when playing with videos.
2 - Disconnect ethernet or wireless when creating videos.
3 - Make space on the Harddrive (you will need 'double' the space of the video, as atemprary version is normally created first - A 30minute video ideally will require a minimum of 500meg to 1gig of space just to start with.
4 - Re-install your web-cam drivers

You need to check the settings and configurations relating to your cam. Better to install windows again and reinstall all the drivers. Hopefully it will work

WEBCAM


Start,settings,control panel,system,hardware,device manager.
If the device is listed with no problems (no yellow exclamation or red /) Then you might want to try this web chat software.

If the device does have a ! or / it needs updated drivers or firmware.
