Optiplex 9020 - Video Camera Disconnect


I've got a Dell Optiplex 9020 with a built-in WebCam. The problem I have is that, often, when i try to use software that utilizes the web-cam, it shows up as blank. It doesn't show that a video capture device is not available, but it shows that it is blank.

The solution, although seemingly silly, is that you have to disconnect and re-connect the USB keyboard and then open the on-board camera. Then, the camera will start to work in the software.

Has anyone had issues like this?
