There is no Windows 7 driver available yet for your webcam from Dell but the Vista driver might work. Try downloading the driver from here http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R198114&SystemID=INSPIRON1545&servicetag=&os=WLH&osl=en&deviceid=19297&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=1&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=17&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&fileid=273878

And then install the software. Before running it you can right-click on the icon and run the software in"Vista compatibility mode" under the properties tab. The driver should work on Windows 7. If not you will need to wait for an updated driver from Dell.

My dell inspiron 1545 laptop web cam isnt working with skype anymore


Check in your Device Manager from the Control Panel. Look for the WebCam under Imaging Devices. Delete it and allow the system to reinstall it by using Scan For New Hardware. If it's detected, open a browser and go to TestMyCam.com (yes, it's safe). If you have video there and not in Skype, remove and reinstall Skype. If it's not redetected in the Device Manager, it's likely broken (yep, they do break).

Web cam of inspiron 1545 is not working with windows 7 what shall i do?


Go to www.dell.com and at the bottom of teh page select "Drivers & Downloads" under "Support".
Once in the support section select "Support for home users"
In the next page select laptops > Inspiron laptops > Inpsiron 1545
Then it will ask for an OS, select the windows 7 and when you find your driver it will give both 32 bit and 64 bit versions. This should fix your issue.

In windows7 there is not any problem with the drivers. so don't worry about drivers. in windows7 with dell notebooks there is not any problem with web cams in rear case.

and if u are getting problem than uninstall the drivers which you have installed and download the latest dell web cam drivers by visiting

Upgraded my dell inspiron 1545 from vista to windows 7, now my web cam doesn't work nor will it let me install the original drivers? I've tried the root clean up and connecting a usb cable, no luck


I think the reason it wont let you install original drivers because they are probably just for Vista OS. You can try going to dell's web site and see is there driver download for it or who ever manufacturer is of your web cam. When you ran upgrade advisor it would have told you that web cam probably would have not worked and would have told you where to go for the driver if available.

Web cam problems


Check the device manager and see if the drivers for your webcam is properly installed, you will see a yellow triangle exclamation mark beside the webcam if the driver is not installed properly. You can check the updated drivers at the support website www.support.dell.com. Hope this helps

Dell inspiron 1545 laptop and the same webcam problem.


open your my computer, click on "c" the system will tell you the information is hidden, click on the link and open up the operating system and look in the drivers or there in C and se if you can find you web cam driver, when you find it you might have to force the opening of the driver to install, and once you do that plug your web cam in and see if the system see's it and installs the drivers for the cam, if you installed the driver origanally witht he web cam installed you will have to remove the web cam and unistall the driver and re install it and then plug the web cam back in, and that should help correct the problem.

Driver for webcam


If you haven't reinstalled vista then the web cam should be listed in the control panel under scanners and cameras. If vista has been reinstalled here is a link to the web cam driver

Web cam does not work


People will give you many solutions like Re-installing your web-cam driver or repair it using its CD.

But I recommend you to RESTORE your system to factory settings by using Dell's Restore Wizard.

It will eliminate all such problems from your laptop.
Have a good day.
