Solar....Thanks for the great effort on your part to help me. Unfortunately the drivers you found actually unzsip to be the same driver Alienware supplied me with that didn't correct the problem. I still installed them just in case but it didn't invert the image.
Having done a pretty exhaustive web search I haven't found anywhere where this problem has been resolved short of one person's solution of actually dismantling the screen and physically reversing the webcam orientation which I am not inclined to risk to do.
All the "solutions" that I found out on the web only can invert the image after the live camera stream has been saved into a video file format. Only one webcam application product (not a driver) I found yesterday actually reverses a live session in real time without streaming to a file first.
However the "AlienSense" facial datametrics security screen that comes up at login still shows the upsidedown live video. The application I found that can invert the webcam, being that it is an application and NOT a driver does NOT hook the webcam at bootup prior to the AlienSense login screen executing.
At least that application is a step in the right direction....
Again thanks alot for trying!
