Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook

2 Answers

Ok i've had my Dell Inspiron 1470 for about a year now...i never really used my webcam thats installed in it because i never really needed to use it but now that i want to use it,its not letting me do anything with it. When i go to Devices and Printers it says that my computer needs a troubleshoot and when i do it, it says that there is a problem with the driver of USB webcam.When i click on the "fix it now" button it says that it cannot be fixed and ive also tried to reinstall it with the disc that came with the laptop and it STILL says the same thing. I've also gone to the Dell.com website and downloaded all the things i was able to download(and also the drivers) and it still says the exact same thing i dont know whats going on with it.

1. First install the USB driver and Webcam driver the reboot it 2. Press the Fn + ECS to open the webcam.
If this also can not work maybe you webcam failed just contact with the Customer service to repair it.

I have this same laptop with the same problem. The only way i got the webcam to work is when you have Webcam Central open and then plug in a USB device in your laptop like a USB mouse. When the laptop detects the USB device the webcam gets dectected by Webcam Central. *** me off because I tried other people's reasonable solutions for hours with no luck. This was the only way I got it to work. Funny thing is the webcam is still detected by other programs like Yahoo Messenger while Webcam Central does not.

If the drivers won't help you try installing a webcam program on your laptop such as "Youcam" that will make your webcam work.

make sure you have both the things installed :

1. webcam manager : http://ftp.us.dell.com/app/R168730.EXE
2. driver : ftp://ftp.us.dell.com/input/R165116.EXE

Webcam 1440 not working


Hi,

yup in windows7 it will really show it is ok but it still may not be the correct drivers for your devices.

In windows 7 it can detect and install a generic driver to any device, but it may not work, the best thing to do is to install the drivers of your system from the Dell website that will specific to your Inspiron Model, Trust me reinstalling all your drivers wont hurt ^_^.

Dell Inspiron 1470 won't come on.


check you power supply, that's the first thing i would check, if you have a spare charged battery try that one to see if it works, using a volt meter check from the outside jacket of your plug to the center there should be voltage there, check on the power supply there will be an indication of how much voltage should be present

My dell inspiron 1525 webcam wont work with yahoo messenger


This is happening because the Dell webcam central is accessing the webcam at the same time as yahoo messenger. Click on start and click on Run(XP), Type MSCONFIG in start search (Vista) and you'll get the system configuration utility. Open it and go to the startup tab. Uncheck anything related to Dell webcam. Click on Apply and OK and restart the computer. If yahoo messenger shows a black screen uninstall Yahoo messenger and reinstall with the more recent version.
