Did you recently install/reinstall the operating system? If yes, did you install the drivers in the correct order? How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order
Windows 7/8 is supposed to provide the webcam drivers for most Dell computers. If you system needs webcam drivers, go to Drivers & Downloads enter your service tag, then select your operating system. If your system needs webcam drivers, they'll be listed under Input.
You can try this file, also known as Dell Webcam Central.
Create a new unrestricted user account and try the webcam. Did the webcam work?
If yes, log out and log back in to your account and try the webcam. Did the webcam work?
If no, then the webcam became detached from the motherboard, usually near the webcam
If your computer is under warranty, contact Dell Tech Support
If I remmeber correctly, Dell-Terry B sent you a private message.

pls i need a direct link to install my dell webcam can any one help me pls ? my model is inpiron N5010
my inspiron 14z came with dell webcam central 2.00.46 and when I check for update there is a new version 2.01.18
released directly from "Creative technology", 221.35MB the file name is DWSS_V_2_0_PCAPP_WEBUP_6.exe
dont have a direct link though..
an updating program opens up and starts to download it realllllly slowly and saves it to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Creative\Software Update\cache\Dell Webcam Central 2.01.18__ folder on the laptop.
the old version 2.00.46 software file from creative was DWSS_V_2_0_PCAPP_WEBUP_4.exe
hope this helps someone out there ...
After trying this link - All I Get Is - Details for this driver are Currently Unavailable - Please Try Again Later - What Good Does This Do When I Can't Link-Up ???
vez, I do appreciate your concern & yet your message got lost- I have a 2year old Inspiron One 2305, I had a working webcam, long ago, but it's gone- It not in my Device Manager profile- I run Windows 7 Premium Home Edition 64bit- I've Tried Many Different Things & Nothing Helps, So Please, Jump-Right-in & See What U Can Do - Please Reply & We'll Go From There ... Thanks
