Welcome to Dell Community!

i must to make my camera work!! i'm sitting hours trying to figure what can i do...
Even I have the same problem, One question , Did you ever try to install/unsintall any external web cam on the same laptop ?
If your computer has Fast Access Facial Recognition Software, then...
Start Skype. Click on tools, options, video settings. From the drop down menu select FA Virtual Cam.
i have dell inspiron n4010 with windows 7 64bit...i tried installing webcam central 3 and also tried to upgrade my cam driver but nothing has worked so far...in my device manager there are no bangs against integrated webcam it seems to be installed correctly but wen i open web cam central the cam blinks on and of again...this keeps happening...web cam central detects the cam it switches on and then off again..please tell me if this is a hardware problem or can it be fixed through some driver...
I am having the same issue with my n4010 as well, I honestly think its some type of fault with the computer and the new software dell had us download, my laptop is brand new as of this year, so its the company's fault. I still have warrenty I will be contacting them today since none of these post have helped.
After update my camera has no been detected, now im unable to do anything since I was told to remove the program.
I have exactly the same problem with my Dell Inspiron N4010 i5 equiped with Window 7 Professional 64bits and Integrated Dell Webcam Central 1.3M, 14/15/1764.
I tried to follow the procedure you described but imaging devices never show in device manager. Even when i tried to use "Add lagacy hadware" procedure after the search integrated webcam does not appear in the list of manufacturer and model.
Is there any procedure to follow to bring back Imagine device with integrated webcam into device manager drop down list.
Plaese your help will be highly appreciated.
I have the same on an XPS 17 - started a thread on here that no one has bothered to respond to yet.
How many people have to say they have this problem beffore Dell recognise there is an issue with either hardware failure or compatibility - mine stopped working after a Windows update. An external webcam works fine.
Updating webcam central wont fix it
Updating/reinstalling the driver wont fix it
I did as what you told but this is what is coming on my skype :
What should be done?Should I take the laptop to the store shop?
It was working till today when I tried to use webcame but ws not working..The above is been shown when I try to connect to skype webcam..Keeps flickering on & off..
Try restarting the computer first and see if it comes back.
You said it was working, then try a system restore point to see if it works, again.
Can you still login with your Fast Access Facial Recognition Software?
I uninstalled & installed the latest s/w but still shows as the above..
How to login to my Fast Access Facial Recognition Software?
It is written that Skype could not find webcam..
I don't know why Dell won't publish any Webcam driver/software for the integrated webcam used in laptop.
I found the following Dell Webcam Central software (full version). My laptop is not listed int the "Compatibility" section but it works like a charm to me. But I am not sure if it will work for you. You may give it a try.
Sorry for the delay, work. If the laptop is under warranty, contact Dell Tech Support.
