Hi  Faisal Dilbagh,

Welcome to the Community,

First try to restore  BIOS to default.Tap F2 on start up,on BIOS page press F9 to setup defaults,than press F10 to save and exit.After system restarts and loads to Windows check if Webcam shows up in Device Manager.

If it does not show up in device manager,run the Webcam Diagnostics,refer to this link below :

en.community.dell.com/.../3557.webcam-diagnostics.aspx

Did the webcam show in the symptom tree?

Any error messages?

Thank You

Thanks for the update.

I restored BIOS to default but still there is no Webcam option in Device Manager. However while installing the drivers it failed to get any driver for USB2.0-CRW. Furthermore the layout of my diagnostics is different from the one shown in the link. I can't find the symptom tree.

Please Help.

Hi Faisal,

Since you've reinstalled Windows 7 make sure you install the drivers in the order given in the link posted by Rick.I've checked on your system model and it has  ePSA Diagnostics loaded on it,so you may not be able run the Webcam diagnostics.However access the diagnostics again.It will start running the Quick test automatically,press Esc key and run test on Cables.This should tell us if the Webcam is not getting detected in Device Manager due to loose cable connection.

Also you can download Dell Support Center  and run Custom Scan on PC Checkup for Video device which includes camera :

Refer to this link below for steps to download and run PC Checkup :

RockSt☆r-Rick K,

            Yes I installed Windows 7 myself as my pc is ubuntu version. Genuine windows 7 wasn't pre-installed. Yes i also installed the drivers in correct order.

I also installed Dell Webcam Central but it says " Please plug in the supported device."

The layout of my webcam diagnostics is different from the one shown in your link. Though i ran the test and all tests were successful. I can't find the symptom tree.

While running a drivers scan from Drivers Detective i found an error

USB2.0-CRW = Drivers not found.

Yes my Dell 15R 5520 is under warranty.

Thanks.

Hi Roshan,

               Yes the Drivers are installed in the correct order. I ran the tests on Cables and all test passed.

I also installed Dell Support Center as you said. Is Custom Scan under the Video devices there are:

1. AVI - AVI Test

2. Video Card - Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000

3. Monitor - Generic PNP Monitor

4. Video Port - Video Ports

There isn't any option of Webcam. Though all above 4 tests have passed. I have also updated my windows but webcam is still not working.

Thanks.
