How to switch on my built in dell web cam... i'm using dell studio lap top.. my OS is windows 7

Hello sir, hi, you definitely need your CD with driver which came with your Dell laptop, Use the CD to install the webcam software driver and application. If you cant find the CD, go to DELL website and download the driver for your webcam, and hopefully the laptop/webcam supports windows 7. If not you may need to wait for the driver.

The Audio in my webcam central won't seem to work can anyone help me fix this problem when i first got my dell it seemed to work but now it doesn't and i want to record a video but the audio won't seem to...

I have a Dell 1545 with Dell web cam central & I've had this issue. The problem is that Dell web cam central installs it's own microphone settings onto your laptop called something like Dell web cam Live!. This isn't the built in microphone in my laptop & maybe not yours either. You have to change the settings for your computer system & Dell web cam central. Go to start> control panel> sound> recording .. on mine there is an option for Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" ... that is the built in mic. You want that for your default & apply it. Then open Dell web cam central & go to the "Record Video's" option. In the middle of this is an orange button with a video camera icon. Next to this on the same button is a little arrow pointing down .. click that. Under microphone .. choose Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" just like the sound option in control panel. I've done this & it's completely fixed. I can record videos with sound & use my built in mic in voice/video chat.

My web camera on dell labtop does not work i've tried everything

Locate your Cam in "Device Manager" and update or roll back the driver, whichever fixes it. Try one and if it doesn't do it try the other. You may also do a "Custom" Microsoft update if you are running windows and look under additional hardware updates to see if your Cam is listed, if so select the update and install them. Should get your Cam going again.
