  • Hi karthik_cool94,

    Welcome to the Community,

    Just had few questions to help you resolve the issue.

    Did you reinstall the Windows on your system?  If yes,after installing the windows did you install the drivers in the correct order as mentioned in this link below ?


    Are you running Windows 7 or Vista (32 or 64 bit)?

    Try this link to download the webcam software and see if it works:

    For the WLAN it could be Intel or Dell wireless card driver you need.

    Private message me your system service tag number, i will check the wireless card on your system and give you the direct link to download the driver.To private message accept my friend request,click on my user name and click start conversation.

    Let me know if the Webcam application gets installed.

    Thank You

  • rogen60,


    Did you read what Roshan suggested?


    Did you recently install/reinstall the operating system? If yes, did you install the drivers in the correct order? How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order

    Windows 7/8 is supposed to provide the webcam drivers for most Dell computers. If you system needs webcam drivers, go to Drivers & Downloads enter your service tag, then select your operating system. If your system needs webcam drivers, they'll be listed under Input.

    Troubleshooting the Dell Webcam and Dell Webcam Central Software

    You can try this file, also known as Dell Webcam Central.

    Create a new unrestricted user account and try the webcam. Did the webcam work?

    If yes, log out and log back in to your account and try the webcam. Did the webcam work?

    If no, then the webcam became detached from the motherboard, usually near the webcam

    IS your computer is under warranty?
