Step 1: Click the bottom left corner of your screen, start menu icon. No program is open, you do so. This will eliminate clutter, and make it easier to find what you need.

Step Two: Right click "My Computer" in your Start menu. (Vista users should right-click "Computer" from the pop-up menu, select "Properties.")

The third step: find the Hardware tab, click "Device Manager." (Vista users can click the left menu in the "Device Manager" Properties window. You do not have to click on a tab. Click "Continue" when prompted.)

Step 4: Select the type of item you want to find an updated driver. For example, if you select "Display Adapters", it will expand and show all of your computer display adapters. If you check for updates on all your equipment, start at the top and work all the way down.

Step Five: Right-click the specific device to update your PC drivers. Select "Update Driver" from the pop-up menu. This will open the Hardware Update Wizard.

Step Six: Choose the button next to "Yes, this is just" let the wizard connect to the Internet, and update your device drivers search. Click "Next."

Step Seven: stay in the "Install the software automatically" setting selected (if not selected, select it to switch). Click "Next." The wizard will now search for new drivers and install automatically if we find any. If your device is up to date, it will tell you it can not find a better driver for your device.

Step Eight: Click "Finish." Repeat steps 4 through 7 for each device on each extension option to update your PC on all the drivers.
Hope it helps and maybe you need a tool to do the update go to

You can go to the Dell Support site @
but you have to make your selection to update your drivers because there is no automatic updates for drivers at Dell.


You can also use the Microsoft Updates, "Custom" selection to update your Dell Laptop drivers.

**note:- If the Laptop is having problems with any device drivers then you update them, if it is running it is not necessary to update your drivers.

Hope it helps.

Dell web cam says please plug in a supported device

If this just started in the last few days, try doing a system restore prior to the incident. Its likely driver file corruption. Doing a system restore will often resolve driver issues caused by system updates. Microsoft is notorious for dumping updates on a computer, replacing system drivers with "microsoft updated" generic versions that are not compatible with every system.

If this does not work, you may have to try restoring the original drivers from the CD's Dell provided you with your laptop. If you do not have these, you can download the drivers for your system directly from Dell's support page after entering your Express Service Code for your Laptop (located on the bottom). This will bring up a list of all available drivers based on your operating system and category of drivers needed.
