Hello Vett and welcome.

Click Start | Search for 'devmgmt.msc' | Expand all the dropdowns
| Look for

If there's a triangle, you might be missing the driver. Have you updated everything in Windows Update? The driver might be there, as it usually does.

Did you find anything in Windows Update? Also you might want to insert the CD that the webcam came with.

You should go to the Dell website, fill in your model number etc., and then it should be there as far as I'm concerned.

I've never heard of the webcam for a laptop not working. Did you reinstall using the recovery cd or recovery partition that it came with?
