i recently upgraded from xp to windows 7 on my dell.
please instruct me on. How to get my webcam working again.
The first thing you need to check is the dell's model number. You can do this by checking the back of your computer or you can open up the command window. To open the command window click on the start menu and type 'cmd'(without the quotes) and then click on the first and result.
Once you are in the command prompt type the following command 'wmic csproduct get name' (without the quotes). T he model number will then be displayed. Once you get the product number log into the dell official page and click on the support tab.
Then go to software and drivers where they will ask you to identify your product. Do so and select your operating system as windows 7. A list of drivers will appear. Select 'input devices' and there you will find the specific driver for your dell webcam.
Simply download it and install it then restart your computer. You are done.
Window 7 has your webcam drivers but if it is not working then I am mentioning two methods, hope these helps you.
If you still get an error then proceed to the second step
To reinstall the webcam driver, perform the following steps.
Hope it works....
