Check first if the drivers for the webcam are installed. you can do this by:

1. click start and open control panel
2..(if you're using win vista/7), open device manager and click on the plus sign/arrow beside imaging devices. OR (if you're using windows xp, right click on my computer and select properties. under system properties, go to hardware tab and click on device manager)
3. highlight the device under imaging devices and uninstall. restart the computer after.
4. if that does not work or there is nothing showing under imaging devices, you may download the drivers from the dell website:

just make sure you're downloading the driver that is compatible with your operating system

Make sure that your laptop actually has a camera built in. Some models don't have a webcam. Other than that, you may need to turn it on via a switch (but I doubt there is such a thing) or last resort is to see in BIOS if there is a setting to turn on the webcam (doubt it also).

Hello ,

Did you try using the software that is built into the computer to use your webcam? If not just search webcame in the start menu. I tried looking for the drivers but seems that there aren't any. Sorry if this wasn't much help.

Sometimes the driver that comes with windows is better than the one from the manufacturer's cd. I would try both and whichever one functions better is the one to use.Good luck to you.
