  • What model Inspiron do you have, and what OS are you using?


    You should've received the Webcam Manager software on a disc with the system?

    But it's also available on the 'Drivers & Downloads page (link at the bottom of this page - under 'Support') for your system, on the Dell website.


    The webcam should be listed under 'Scanners and Cameras' in Vista?

    From experience, I've found that:   “Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder”!!
