After a hard drive crash and new install, my integrated WebCam on my Dell Studio 1749 thinks it is a usb video device when it is actually built into the top of the laptop.  Does anybody know how I can get it to stop thinking it is usb and built in?

RE: WebCam

Hi Lcpbear,

Did you install all drivers after re-installing the operating system? Click on the link below for steps on how to use the Dell Drivers & Downloads Website to download drivers:

Since the hard drive crashed and you have re-installed the operating system, you may have to re-install the Webcam drivers from My Dell Downloads Software link.

If you still face issues, please click on the link below to troubleshoot issues with the webcam:


When these steps do not resolve the issue, a diagnostic test is available for the webcam. Run the Dell PC Diagnostics for Webcam Issues.
