Question about Dell Studio 1737 Laptop
I have an answer! I've tried many times to fix this problem on my laptop, even talking to two dell reps in the process(which was worthless). Finally I found the problem(for me, at least)- my webcam's driver was not compatible. If you haven't tried this already, go to your Device Manager, click the plus sign next to Imaging Devices, and select Integrated Webcam. Right click that and select Update Driver Software. I downloaded the latest driver it found and restarted my computer, and miraculously my webcam central was back to normal. I hope this helps you too!

I had the same problem on two computers and finally tracked it down to the following. I was running a face recognition program for logging in to Windows and this app was always running in the background to be ready to accept a face when the computer locked. So what I do now is right-click on the app (FastAccess Face Recognition) and temporarily disable it - the Dell Webcam Central works fine. Afterwards I just re-enable the face recognition app.
Hope this helps.

Uninstall web cam central , it is just a software for you to take your own pictures and effects. But due to close other vedio streaming problem , the other applications in your pc like yahoo or skype which have vedio chat option do not detect your webcam. However if you uninstall your software , other applications will detect your webcam and work well and good. :)

Three possibilities of what might be going on
1- When you installed the web cam, windows found and loaded the drivers for it while you were putting in the install cd for the web cam and after you installed the software for the cam it tried to overwrite the windows install but didn't.
2- Are you using the same usb port that you installed the web cam into originally? if not then what happens sometimes is that windows looks for the drivers for this device under that usb finds the drivers for the original install and then opens them both up at the same time, giving you the illusion of two cams but only one actual cam.
3- Does your computer have a built in cam? if this is the case then when you open up your cam, you will have two cams trying to feed off one line, causing a problem, but only one cam will be showing up on your error.
Hope this helps.
