Go to computer press [Windows] and [ e ] and go to uninstall or change a program, look for any webcam software and uninstall it.

Next uninstall your web camera in the device manager..

Press the [Windows] and [Pause|Break] or [Windows] and [ e ] (to open computer) and then select properties.

On this screen next select Device manager.


Hopefully it should look something like mine. Expand Imaging Devices, right click the integrated webcam and select uninstall.

 

Restart your computer. Windows 8 should reinstall the webcamera. The webcamera should now work.

For systems with access to My Dell Downloads, Dell Webcam Central should be downloaded from my Dell Downloads. Otherwise use R230103.exe.
