I have a Dell Integrated Webcam for my Studio 1558, and recently it has been disconnecting for no apparent reason. A message will pop up at random stating that a USB has disconnected. Also when the webcam does work, the quality is low and in black and white. I go into USB devices and it gives an Error 43 message.

Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)
One of the drivers controlling the device notified the operating system that the device failed in some manner.
If you have already run the Troubleshooting Wizard, you might want to check the hardware
documentation for more information about diagnosing the problem.
I would suggest you to run the hot fix and see if that helps.
If your high-speed USB 2.0 ports don't work, you might not have the correct driver installed for the ports in your computer, or the ports might be defective. If you are using an external USB hub plugged into your computer, this might also be defective or lack the proper drivers. Check Device Manager to see if your USB ports or hubs are working properly.
1. Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
2. Double-click Universal Serial Bus controllers and check to see if all your USB ports, hubs, and controllers are functioning correctly. Any devices not functioning will have a yellow exclamation mark in front of them.
3. If Device Manager shows any USB ports, hubs, or controllers are not functioning, check for updated drivers. For more information, see Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly.
