Re: Dell Webcam driver

I am not going to accept that i bought a laptop with a onboard web camera and I can't use it.Dell should pay more attention to the needs of  those who buy their products. The lack of a driver shows a lack of interest from them.Buying an external web camera is not a solution.

Re: Dell Webcam driver

Bought yesterday, a Logitech cam c-300 for Inspiron 6000, I've installed the software but the system doesn't recognize the cam which is connected to usb ports. I use these ports with the mouse and pendrives and ther'e s no poblem.

Can anyone tell me wha's going on? it seems that it's quite of a nuisance

Re: Dell Webcam driver

Did the laptop have Windows 7 pre-installed, or Vista?

If it had Vista pre-installed, and Windows 7 drivers for the webcam aren't offered on the Drivers & Downloads page for your laptop, you took a gamble - simple as that

 

If that's the case - you have four options: 

 

1.  Try the equivalent Vista drivers - i.e. 32bit or 64bit, depending on what version of Windows 7 you're using.  They've worked for many of us.

2.  Try and find suitable Windows 7 drivers elsewhere.

3. Buy an external USB webcam which supports Windows 7.

4.  Go back to Vista.

Welcome to the forums

 

 

You really ought to have started your own thread for this, but anyway... in the words of a famous UK quiz-master... "I've started - so I'll finish"

 

What OS/version are you using - i.e. Vista Home Premium 32bit?

 

I use an external Logitech webcam myself (C905), and I had no problems installing the drivers and software for it, nor configuring it in WLM (Windows Live Messenger).

Did you install the drivers and software before connecting the webcam?  That's often quite important.

Try the latest drivers/software available for the C300 on the Logitech website

I always prefer to get the latest drivers/software off the manufacturer's website, rather than using the CD supplied with the product, simply because the supplied disc is the same one which was included when the product was first released, and the drivers/software have almost always been updated since then.

 

And it's the same software used for all their webcams, so if mine's working OK, it should be OK with yours too

Re: Dell Webcam driver

Hi, thanks, i agree about beauty and the beer holde and the beauty; the machine is a Laptop Inspirons 6000, it's about five years old roughly speaking; it does work with Windows- XP. As I said the sofware of the Logitech c-300 has been properly installed but the laptop doesn't recognize the web cam, the web cam is to be connected through usb ports. I believe that Logitech is one of the brands that are sold by Dell. The USB ports work perfectly with mouse and pendrives, but they don't seem, none of them recognize that the cam is actually plugged-in. And by the way, I plugged in the camera when I was requested by the cd, I think is the step number 2, where it  gives you the options: "cancel" or "skip"

Re: Dell Webcam driver

My point was, my time is worth something. If Dell can't fix it, I'm not going to keep putting hours into the elusive fix. It's clear they aren't the company they were five years ago, at least as far as support is concerned. I'll give my money to Logitech or someone else and re-think my decision to buy Dell next time. They obviously didn't understand what Windows 7 was going to mean. Sad, I've been buying Dells for personal and business use for 20 years.
