Hi Yj131,

Please uninstall the Webcam central software using this uninstaller software from the link: http://revouninstallerpro.com/

Install the software and uninstall the webcam central using the Advanced Uninstall option from the software. It is third party uninstaller software used to uninstall the drivers/programs from the computer.

The software prompts asking you to delete the Registry keys corresponding to the Webcam driver. Select all and delete them. Restart the computer to remove any traces of the webcam software.

1)       Visit http://bit.ly/OXFXhj

3)       The website will prompt you for running a plugin which will analyze your computer system service tag and list the applications which can be installed.

4)      Locate “Dell Webcam Central”, select it and click “Download”.

5)      Download Manager will prompt for installation, follow the on-screen instructions to download the software using the download manager.

Re: Dell Web cam Central not functioning

Hi Yj131,

I would like to know if you have checked the box beside the option to delete the registry keys when the uninstaller software prompted.

Looks like the traces of older webcam drivers still remain the system.

Please reply to the below questions for further help:

Are you able to use the webcam?

When exactly is the message been displayed and what happens after you close the message?

Is it an integrated webcam in the laptop or external webcam?

Awaiting your response.

Thanks & Regards,
Nikhil D

Re: Dell Web cam Central not functioning

Hi,

Yes i have checked the box to delete the registry keys when prompted.

And to answer your question:

I am able to use my webcam for skype and etc etc, but when using webcam central I can`t use the video recording function but i am able to capture images.

The message is shown after i clicked the setup.

It is a integrated webcam in the laptop.

Hi Yj131,

I would like to know what happens when you open the Webcam Central software to record the video.

Is the video option grayed out or is it displaying any error messages when you click on video recording?

Please reply for further help.

Re: Dell Web cam Central not functioning

Hi,

When i open webcam central, at the right hand side, there is already a message saying "Some of the software files are missing. Please try to reinstall the software."

I am still able to take picture despite the message but when i switch to video mode and press start videoing, a message pop up saying " Failed to start video recording. There may be a problem with the video capture device or the audio recording device."
