  • Hi Deepu0787,

    There are few steps I would suggest which would help us in fixing the issue. 

    -- Run the 
    Dell PC Diagnostics for Webcam
    -- Update the 
    Bios to the latest version.  

    **NOTE: Few things to ensure before updating the Bios is, the Ac Adapter should be plugged in and the battery should have minimum of 15% charge. No other external peripherals should be connected to the computer. Please ensure that the Bios update should not be interrupted else it would damage the motherboard. 

    -- Please follow the article to 
    Uninstall and Re-install the Webcam Central Software.
    -- You may also refer the article on 
    Troubleshooting Webcam Issues for more details. 
     
    Please try the steps and write back with results, would be glad to assist further. 

    Thanks & Regards
