You will need to get the proper drivers for the camera to work. You can get them easily by visiting www.dell.com and go to support, select your computer model and on the left side of the screen there should be a tab for Drivers. Find the one for your computer, download and run it. This should enable the camera.

let me know if you need help, I can help further and even possibly help by logging into your computer and fixing it for you.

Microsoft webcam driver


Make sure you've installed the disc properly. Check on the manual that it works on the formal your computer/laptop is e.g. vista, xp ect. If it supports it then check all your properties are working if all properties appear to be correct try going on "My computer" then on the cam and then trying to view your cam. If that works then go onto the top options until you find a button that says options then check to find what your formats in. By clicking on options you should be able to change your format.

On msn, my webcam shuts off before someone is able to view it. out of msn it works fine, i have a dell inspiron laptop with an inbuilt webcam, anyone know how to solve my issue?


you need to uninstall all the drivers that the built in camera has in your computer... then try re installing the drivers back again... you should have the cd from the time you bought your laptop...

hope it helped you... tnx

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


if you have the webcam center opened along with with msn then it wont work on either one of them.
you can try these steps tp check if it works for you or not.

1)look for the web cam center system tray icon and right click on it if its there and select exit

and as u said u cant see you self in web cam console --- in webcam console you can only see your self under the doodling tab and only of your webcam is working at that i.e

either you have the webcam center opened or any other messenger or software which turns on your cam then only ull be able to view your cam in webcam console alongside.

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!

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


as ive told others, make sure u actually turn off the software program that came with the computer before using with msn! u should be able to have it on while using it but for some reason some computers wont allow it! it "tells itself" that there are 2 programs trying to run the web cam when really only one is.
but because the program is on, it sees it as being used in 2 places at 2 different times!

try turning off and exiting the software (dell webcam manager) and then go onto msn and try using ur web cam!! make sure the dell manager is exited, then when u have a msn window open, turn the cam on and see if ur friends can see u then..

good luck..
if this doesnt work ill check back and see what i can do for you!
