From where I can download windows 7 compatible webcam driver and application for my Inspiron 1545. Pls help
People have had sucess with the drivers located at...
Installing Dell Webcam Central
If those drivers do not work, then try the drivers at...
Dell Webcam Central v2.00.39
What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?

Welcome to Dell Community!
webcam central is just some dipsy program.
i need either a driver or a new computer.
Drivers are in the software.
then why did downloading and installing that nonsense waste of cpu program not make my webcam work?
ive had the program before. it starts running on startup and drains cpu like mad.
Why, do you mean that Dell supplies you with second grade software for your hardware?! No way!!
ahaha i wonder when dell's going to realise windows 7 came out
i mean really, how longs it been now? October 22, 2009 was when it came out in retail.
all of the drivers i have to put in vista compatibility mode, and then they still dont work
i mean, after a good year and a half, don't they know?
should we let them know about firefox surpassing internet explorer in usage by people who actually use laptops?
do they even know who the president of the US is at the moment?
they seem just a bit uninformed

excuse me, sir, but copy and pasting doesnt mean you have knowledge and experience in this matter.
i've read through entirely too many threads concerning my problem with my webcam that is specific to my laptop; i don't think your "help" is necessary.
i'm waiting on an actual dell worker who may know what they're doing.
notice webcam centrals latest version is sept. 2009?
windows 7 came out in october.
perhaps you also have not gone into task manager and seen the cpu usage over time spent on computer that ~*~dell webcam central~*~* takes up.
its an unnecessary program and a dell integrated webcam works fine without it on any dell machine.
can i download the wabcam drive and applicationfor my 1545 inspiron please
having problem to install web cam driver after upgraded to win 7. when i install driver (R198114) it giving error message like 'An error occurred while setting up the driver' device manager also not showing webcam in list.
First you must have the CD "Dell Application Already Installed on Your Computer" (for Reinstalling Dell Webcam Central Software)
Then locate the ctclsflt.sys file on your computer
Open Device Manager
Double Click on "Imaging devices" then double click on "intergrated Webcam"
Select "Driver Tab"
Select "Driver Details"
This will tell you where the ctclsflt.sys file is located
(usually located c:\windows\system32\drivers\ctclsflt.sys)
Once located delete it. Then use the "Dell Application Already Installed on Your Computer" (for Reinstalling Dell Webcam Central Software) and reinstall the software with the original drivers.

Hi! I started this forum-topic, because I was really sore about the problem.
I solved it when I installed Windows 7. Vista was really a sickness! With 7 works the webcam very well -only with Dell Webcam central you have to plug a USB-device and it starts.
Did you try the different things listed at...
