I have had the same problem in the past too. Here is what I did, first disconnect the web cam from your computer. Then go to the manufactures website and download the latest drivers they have for the model webcam you have. Install the drivers first, then hook up the web cam. You should then get a pop up window at the bottom of the screen saying a new device or drivers are being installed. Once this finish's reboot (restart) your computer and your web cam should now work. You may have to adjust the settings for sound or brightness but those are minor things. If you install it the way I suggest it should work, either that or you have a bad web cam.

I hope this helps you out.

No webcam detected laptop


Try re-installing the webcam driver from here: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/uk/en/ukdhs1/Produc...
(Click the "Drivers & Downloads" tab).

If that doesn't fix it, and there are no driver errors showing in Device Manager (ie no question marks or exclamation marks) then it's very likely that the internal webcam has broken and Windows can no longer detect it.

You can buy an external webcam to overcome that problem.

My computer cannot detect my web cam


Have you tried installing the proper driver for your webcam? You might have got a cd along with it when you brought it. Insert this cd into your pc and connect the webcam. If its not detecting the webcam, just restart your system without removing the webcam. If detection still does not occur, check the connection and make sure you have connected it right. after the found new hardware, click it and select automatically search for drivers,which will search the driver in your system and will be installed from the cd. I hope this fixes your problem.

Can not use my webcam


Go to CONTROL PANEL-SYSTEM, check if the Webcam device is detected, if detected and has Yellow Mark meaning it needs driver. Try download your driver, Google search for it or maybe you have your CD Driver you can use.
