Dell Webcam Doesn't Work?

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545, and i've had it for about 2 years now. For some reason, the integrated webcam doesn't work anymore! It just recently stopped working. Can anyone tell me how to fix it? Also, Dell Webcam Central didn't open whenever I clicked it, but that had been happening for a while. When I try to redownload it, it won't download. It says something like my system is too complex or, i don't know, something like that. PLEASE HELP?! emoticon.Crying.title

What about Windows 8?  The instructions I found for Windows 8 don't work.
