Dell webcam central reference works do not.

I have a computer dell laptop with a built-in webcam that doesn't work anymore. I have Windows 7. Everytime I open Dell Webcam Central it says "please connect a device supported", I don't know what the problem is and I can't find the webcam on device manager on my computer. It is not under what it is. Under USB controllers, but there was something that said device unknown and I uninstalled it to see if that would do anything, but no change. Please help, thanks.


No, you can either get the only fixed internal and if this cannot be done so using an Add - on camera.

  • Dell Webcam integrated reference works do not for Windows Vista in Inspiron 1525

    The Dell Inspiron 1525, I bought new 2.5 years ago.  When I got the laptop, I tried to use the webcam, but it did not work.  It shows only a screen black when the webcam running rather than capture images.  I try once more to use the webcam, and it still does not work.  Any ideas?


    ·         Do you have a CD of the software with the laptop when you bought it new?

    You may need to install the updated release of the request for the webcam and check if that helps you to use the webcam.

    Download utilities system for the portable computer from the link below and check if that helps.

    Hope this information is useful.

  • Webcam error. Dell Webcam Central reference.

    I just got my new laptop last week. It came with a built-in webcam. I used it once and had no problem. Now, I try to open it and it opens with a reading window "webcamdell2.exe has stopped working" and then he goes to seek to fix but comes up with nothing and told me to warn me if it finds a solution. He found no one after one week.

    Additional notes... I am the administrator. However, it works on the nickname of comments. Just not mine.


    Log in as admin.

    Device - Imaging configuration-management panel - right-click on the camera and the UNINSTALL - REBOOT
    This updates the driver stack.

    Then go to Dell support and get the latest drivers of the camera AND software from the camera to your system.

    Looking for WebCam Applications and Input Device Drivers here:

    Dell support - go to your model and the version of Vista

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put a CLICK RIGHT top - RUN AS ADMIN

  • Reference Dell Webcam Central & Windows 7 (Version Windows 7 of the Dell Webcam Central program)

    In other words, could someone please post a link to the Dell Webcam Central GENUINE for Windows 7 software, wherever it is on the website of drivers Dell?

    I do not mean some 3rd hokey, rate of Vista (or earlier) version of the program, but rather the version of OEM Windows 7 32-bit true Creative Labs developed specifically for Dell laptops and netbooks (and please don't refer me to the CD 'Application' that came with the computer, because it is not found).

    Dell sells laptops with the built-in Webcam Creative Labs and the Windows 7 operating system for a few months now, and I know they would not have understood the old Vista (or even XP) drivers for use with its newest operating system.

    I looked high & low and read about all the posts I can get my eyeballs on, but everyone seems to advise loading of old, obsolete Vista or XP drivers rather than the new Windows 7 ones, which were obviously having your computer, because it had Windows 7 top from departure (and it's not the scenario of "upgrade after the fact" or the other).

    So just a link, please, to Creative Labs Webcam Central program for Windows 7 Dell OEM.

    It may be that big a deal...

    P.S. I also need the tuner drivers TV Hauppauge of Windows 7 (the bunch of them) for a Mini Inspiron; they must be there somewhere, as well.

    I obviously prefer the OEM Dell version, but I DO NOT want (and not use) the older versions of Vista or XP, which seem to be available in all directions on this site; I want only the things real 'fact-for-Windows 7'

    Thank you.

    There is no Dell Webcam Central for Win7.

    When you check on the Dell / Win7 page under software compatibility, it is not there. For not to mention it is just not going to work. The webcam is fine, the software is not. Until Creative Labs cough one up. Can display on the page then Dell drivers & downloads.

    Regarding your comment about the drivers, Dell Webcam Central is an application, not a pilot. The webcam has native driver support in Windows and works on a number of machines (mine is a Latitude E6400 and a Precision M6400, Win7 64 bit for both). The issue is not the webcam itself... it's that Creative Labs has not yet re - build the application for Windows 7.

    For "True is for Windows 7 tips, Dell is not just the drivers or applications." They get the provider of OEM apps / hardware, so until that companies should meet and create it, it isn't there.

  • 'Not supported webcam' reference Dell Webcam Central?


    I have a Dell Inspiron M5030. I don't remember how long I got it, but I think it's less than a year. I had problems with my webcam. I tried to cam with my friend, but he said that I didn't have a webcam (when I really one). Then I open Dell Webcam Central and he said that it has not detected webcam and I had to plug a. I uninstalled the program and reinstalled it but nothing happened. I tried to look online, but I found results for the other models of Dell. Can someone help me out here? I'd be happy. Thank you in advance.


    Start, Panel, programs and features, Dell Webcam Central, uninstall.

    Also delete Skype and and Skype plug-ins.

    Restart your computer.

    Install Dell Webcam Central

    See if the webcam works, then download and install the latest version of Skype


  • How can I fix my Dell Webcam Central to say "no supported webcam not connected"?

    I'm not sure how it happened exactly, but one day, all of a sudden, my webcam does not work! I've never had this problem before considering that I took of many photos & videos on this subject. I have a Dell Vostro laptop and when I got it, the Dell Webcam Central was already installed and integrated with the PC and I've used it since then. But one day, when I tried to open the webcam, it wouldn't let me take pictures or record video. It's just a black screen and at the bottom it says "no supported webcam not connected."

    I don't know what the problem is and I really need help!
    Thank you! :)

    Check the Dell website to see if there are any software update of the devices on your computer.

    In Device Manager, under any category you saw an ad for Dell webcam?
    If this isn't the case, I suggest that contact Dell because the material has been incorporated into the laptop.

    I hope this helps.

  • Reference Dell Webcam Central and Windows XP (also Windows 7)

    For all the frustrated Dell customers out there who bought Dell computers delivered with Dell Webcam Central, only to have the application stops working with the built-in webcam ("Please plug in a supported webcam"), here is the link to a recent version of the Dell Webcam Central application:

    It is version 1.40.05.  This is the full installation, not an upgrade and includes the "Live!" Cam Avatar Creator software.  I have installed this package on my Inspiron 1012 running Windows XP Home Edition, and it works perfectly.  It is also the same version that shipped with my Studio 1558 running under Windows 7 64-bit.

    I'm not absolutely sure, but I think that the problem is caused when Windows Automatic Updates installs a new integrated version of the webcam driver (this is a Microsoft driver).  The old version of Webcam Central (such as 1.06 or earlier version) does not recognize the updated driver level.

    Don't bother download the 'DellWebcamSW' that Support Dell continues to try to direct me to via "" ( - it is a version older that that delivered with my Inspiron 1012 and therefore will not even install.

    Dell really needs to pull together their support, at least when it comes to software.  They had download me Dell Webcam Central (at least three or four times), they sent me a CD to install the Dell Webcam Central, they even sent me a new hard drive previously imaged.  Downloads and CD always contains the same version that came bundled with my 1012, or even older, even though I told them I needed a newer version, and the new hard drive do not even have the application installed (I sent the new rear drive and kept my old drive).

    And don't bother looking on the site drivers and downloads (whether through the service tag or computer model).  He is not here, for my Inspiron 1012 or my Studio 1558, or for any other model of computer, I looked.  (The Inspiron 1012 list includes even not all the same drivers that requires my computer.)

  • 1545 Dell Webcam Central no audio Solution

    I have a Dell 1545 running with Vista 64 and Dell Webcam Central for the web cam. I experienced a lot of problems with the web cam. The web cam would not work & then wouldn not audio. I would like to record a video & there is no sound. My microphone does not work in the voice, or the cat. If everyone knows this problem... I found a solution that worked for me. The problem is that Dell Webcam Central installs it's own microphone settings on your portable computer called something like Webcam Dell Live!. (the exact name I'm not sure because I removed from my system... but if you follow these steps you will find. Look for something with Live! in the title under MIC) this is not built into the microphone in my laptop, & perhaps not yours. You must change the settings of your computer system & Dell Webcam Central. Go to start > Control Panel > sound > recording... on mine, there is an option for Microphone "High Definition Audio Device"... which is built into the microphone. You who want your default & apply. Then open Webcam Central Dell & option go to the "video recording". In the middle of this is a button orange with a video camera icon. Next to it on the same button is a little arrow pointing down... Click on that. Under micro... Select Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" like the sound option in the Panel. I did & it's completely fixed. I can use my built in mic in the audio/video chat & record videos with sound.

    I hope this can help if anyone has this problem!

  • Dell Webcam Central settings

    Hello, I have a Dell Inspiron N1150 with a built-in webcam. When I run the Dell Webcam Central program, the webcam works fine and shows the video and audio. However, after update today to version 2.01.18 tab 'Settings' in Capture Mode displays all the options like gray and I can't click on any one of them to change the settings of the camera. The drop-down window flicker control is clickable, but none of these options seem to change the image of the camera. In addition, the video effects tab does not work: thumbnails occasional sparkle but none of these options can be clicked or the scroll bars can be used.

    All drivers are updated with audio and video appear to work, but I can't change the appearance of the image in the settings.
