E6410 built in webcam?

This question is answered

I just received a company issued e6410 laptop and noticed what appears to be a camera - just above the screen.  How can I tell if it is operational?

Thanks!

  • Open the scanners and cameras in the control panel -- assuming the OS is as shipped from Dell, there'll be a driver and software there to control the camera.

    If the system came through an IT department and was re-imaged, they would have had to include the drivers in the image for the camera to function.

  • Thanks so much.  It was just as you noted.  The system came from I.T.

    The Scanners and Cameras folder under the Control Panel has no contents.

    Mystery solved.

    Thanks again!
