What webcam are you trying to install. Most of the time it will be a USB connect webcam and you can follow the directions that cam with the webcam. If you do not have the directions or software to the webcam, do a search on the particular cam (Name, Model Number) to find the software so it can install the supported drivers.
Hope this helps-

Is the hard drive working? Probably infected. Can you plug in an external monitor to rule out hardware issues? If its not hardware, then you need to get a windows "pre-existing environment" or PE disk such as "hirens boot disk" to run minimal programs and clean the system of its infection. an infection has hidden the pathway to the operating system. You can rewrite the pathway in safe mode command prompt. You can do this only after the system is clean of infections. Its commonly called Black screen of death. You will need to use reset the winsock cache.

open command prompt

type "netsh" then press enter

type "winsock" then press enter

type "reset" then press enter

Computer will then restart to finish cleaning cache.

To get best quality sound you don't need software but a good audio output. The sound quality of digital audio files is excellent. your cheapest option might be a good Bluetooth speaker (30 USD), you need a USB Bluetooth card but they are dirt cheap. Most expensive option is to connect output to a stereo amplifier with professonal speakers. I have thissolution and sounds great.

You should start up your computer from WinPE, a CD residen simplified Windows operating system. It might help you to make some diagnostics. Get it from
It's only 121 Mb; burn ISO to CD and boot it . Probably you should change startup sequence on BIOS to boot from CD-ROM

If you have a Windows password reset disk, you can easily reset your Windows password with it. If not, you can follow the steps to create one. You just need an available computer linked to the Internet.

Step 1: Download and install Windows Password Breaker with the available computer.

Step 2: Run the program and burn a Windows password reset disk. It could be burned onto a CD/DVD.

Step 3: Turn to your locked computer, insert the newly created CD/DVD to your drive. Reboot the Computer and reset the Windows password.

It is easy and safe to use.

Please let me know whether you can able to done it or not.

First of, your question is a tricky question.
There are many anti-virus programmes on the net. Free and pay. Things to keep in mind is virus come first than the anti-virus comes out. Virus programmers are always looking for weakness in a system and they write a virus for many purposes. Other annoying facts is even if the virus was killed or out of the programme, it is very hard to fix anything they have damaged. So, you have to keep in mind even though you successfully killed a virus you still need to fix damage it has cause. That is why IT people always recommend to back up your data, format your HDD and reinstall windows and the programmes you are using.
Said that, now let's get to the virus problem.
Free anti-viruses:
1. AVG
3. Avira
4. McFee

1. Norton
2. Microsoft - ForeFront, Security Essential (comes with Windows license version.)
3. Kespersky

The above anti-viruses are good in their own ways. As said before you need fixes, patches to fix the damage. They also have fixes once the virus has been identified. Check out their websites by google searching.

Good luck mate.

This does happen on some of the chargers. Most times if you unplug power can let the battery drain all the way and plug back in it will fix its self. If this does not work it can be motherboard issue or adapter. See if you can try another one and if not it would be motherboard. When you try another adapter make sure it is at least 90 W. Hope this helps

Although I can't tell you how to get your laptop back up and running I can advice you of how to try to get the files from your old hard drive. This will involve small screwdrivers as you have to get your hard disk out of your Dell. There's a guide at http://youtu.be/CMyrVa3qihM. Once your hard disk is out you can fit it into an external hard disk caddy and attach it, via usb, to another computer. Caddies are available for around $20 from many electronics stores both on the street and online.

Is it actually stopped or does it return to a default time when the laptop is unplugged for a while?
I assume you have already reset the clock, it's located in control panel under Date & Time. You can also set the clock in the BIOS.
If the time does not advance at all, your motherboard will have to be replaced as the clock chip is not replaceable.
If the clock just needs to be reset every time you use the laptop, you might try leaving it plugged in overnight to recharge the clock battery. If that doesn't help, the clock battery is bad.

Try tapping F8 at boot, select Safe Mode Command Prompt at the menu, type "CHKDSK C: /F/R". May take quite awhile, so be patient.
