Alienware m17 Windows Hello

Just setup my Alienware M17 and I cannot use "windows hello" anymore. It says it cannot find a compatible web cam. Webcam seems to be working using camera on windows 10. Are there specific drivers for this laptop as I could not find any?

 

Thanks

Re: Alienware m17 Windows Hello

New computer?  You say you can't use it anymore-- not a new one? You need a special camera for Hello. I don't see it listed in the specs for the new m17 R2. MS lists only 3 dell XPS laptops that have it.
