'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

  • "Host does not support configuring passthrough"--Dell PE 1950

    I was wondering if anyone can shed some light on how I can be able to configure this server to support a passthrough configuration.

    Basically, what I'm going to implement is a server to allow a single customer to use serial port physical on this server, there is no need for other customers would use the serial port so it can be dedicated to this customer, but currently my Dell Power Edge 1950, who has the last patched ESXi 4.0 running on it displays "host does support not configuring passthrough".

    Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    This KB article is for ESX (i) 3.5, but you can see that ESX supports the use of a physical serial port in a VM and ESXi don't.   If you wish to stay with ESXi and must support a serial port, you can consider a series to the IP for this device.

  • 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.

    My videos with the extension Bup, IFO and VOB does not play

    My computer came with Windows XP and Dell sent me the CD of Vista to install Vista. With XP my Webcam would now work with vista my Webcam Central will recognize not my built in webcam. My web cam works simply with Webcam Central. I uninstalled the Webcam Central software and reinstalled it but nothing has worked so far.


    Step 1: Try the steps outlined in the article below and check out them.

    Step 2: If you still face the same problem then, I would recommend you contact Dell support team to check if the webcam is compatible with windows vista.

  • 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 "tinyurl.com" (http://ftp.us.dell.com/app/DellWebcamSW.exe) - 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.)


    The new link for Dell Webcam Central


  • 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.

  • Reference Dell inspiron n4050 integrated webcam not working do not.

    I'm already installed Dell Webcam Manager. But when I tried to capture an image, he said "no webcam driver supported detected. Please install the webcam driver using the dell Resource CD, and then restart the webcam Center. "

    My unit model is DELL INSPIRON N-4050 and installed 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate edition. I did not come with drivers CD and I do not know where to download the driver for the webcam it is. I also make troubleshooting and checked the Windows Device Manager, it shows that the built-in Webcam is installed under imaging devices, and the driver is up-to-date.

    Hello irfan mir.

    Welcome to the community,

    With Windows 7 webcam driver should get installed automatically. It might be the Webcam Application that does not work properly. Try to uninstall the Webcam of the System Manager (Control Panel, programs and features, select Manager of Webcam, click on uninstall).

    Most often when a device does not work, it is because the driver is damaged. Re-install a new copy should help

    When I upgraded to windows 7 ultimate SP1 whenever I opened the web cam Central it completely crashes my computer. Trying to fix it I inadverdantly removed the dell webcam central from my programs. I tried restoring but files were corrupted and it opened eith no functionality.
