Welcome ot the forums Asif

 

 

You're fortunate to own a laptop model Dell provide Windows 7 specific drivers for!

Select the appropriate OS version (32bit or 64bit) on the main Inspiron 1545 'Drivers & Downloads' page.

The (Creative) webcam drivers are listed under 'Input Device Drivers'

 

BTW:  You should've received a 'Webcam Manager' disc with the laptop?  Be sure to install that as well

From experience, I've found that:   “Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder”!!

In the page 'Drivers & Downloads' there are not any windows 7 drivers for The (Creative) webcam drivers, please someone knows where I can download them?

I can not believe that dell add a webcam in a notebook with windows 7 without drivers for make it work.

If you select vista as the OS there are both 32 and 64bit drivers available these should work depending on which version of w7 you're using,

Re: Inspiron 1545 webcam driver and application for win 7

Hello,  The drivers posted in this link are for Windows Vista.  Unfortunately, this driver is not compatible with Windows 7.  When I attempt to install, it gives the the following error message:

An error occurred while setting up the driver.

Is there a Windows 7 driver for the 1541?  Again, Windows Vista's driver for the webcam does not function and gives an error.  I have been looking for this driver since Windows 7 was released and have not been able to locate it.

 

Thanks

* Right click the Vista driver

* Click the Compatibilty tab
* Under Compatibility Mode, insert the check, down arrow to Windows Vista
* Click Apply- OK
* Now double-click the driver. Does it now install?

Jus followup, even though Dell supplied the windows 7 32 bit upgrade, there does not seem to be any support for the webcam by Dell. Has anyone resolved this issue?  Shows a driver for Creative Labs 1.3MP Camera under Vista!

Re: Inspiron 1545 webcam driver and application for win 7

If you are having webcam problems on the 1545 then download Amcap and install, it works just fine. For those with touchpad problems, do not use the Alps or Synaptics drivers from dell, just uninstall the touchpad using the Device Manager and reinstall using Microsoft update, click update driver and select search the web for the driver. Everything works fine. Another tip, always remove the battery when running off the mains power or the battery will be dead within a year, it only lasts 300 charges/discharges.
