Follow the instructions below and it will work.

Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program.

When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the
camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype

http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/

set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on "Open the call setup assistant" and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.
Hope this helps. Bud

Do u mean your web cam doesn't even get recognized or it doesn't work properly? Like what message you are getting when you try to access your web cam through your application.If it says no web cam detected,then make sure you have installed the proper drivers for your web cam model.

Just bought my laptop in December of 2009. Now my light for my video camera won't turn on.


Go to device manager uninstall the driver for the web cam then after that download the latest driver for your web cam in the support website of dell.
Then, install it if that doesn't work. Access BIOS of your laptop that will be f2 on the start up of your computer check if the web cam is detected.
If it is reinstalling the application of the web cam can help,
If it is not detected and after you've tried the all the things that I've told you it's either you end up erasing everything on your computer or replacing the web cam which is integrated in your LCD.

Dell inspiron's USB ports can't detect webcam


Try a different USB device...see if the PC detects it.
If other devices, like a flash drive run, then your web cam is dead. You can try the web cam on a friends computer to see if it's ok.

If the web cam is good, and no USB devices work in your USB slot, You can check the USB controllers in the "Device manager"

right click "My Computer"
select "Manage"
select "Device Manager"

Click the + sign for "Universal Serial Bus controllers"
Do you have any errors?

I hope this points you in the right direction...Good Luck!

Hey Rolando,

Having some trouble with your computer recognizing your web cam huh? well first of all if its a new web cam usually they all come with an installation CD. All you have to do is use that CD before you plug in your web cam. If you don't have the CD of course takes a little more effort but its not impossible to find the Drivers for you web cam. I don't know what kind of web cam it is therefore I can't provide you with an exact website where you can find the drivers and most of the time you can download them for little or or no cost at all. So if you need me to find out where you can get a hold of sites where you can download the drivers for your web cam all the info i need is the maker of the web cam and the model. Thanks for using FixYa.
