Windows 7: Dell Inspiron 1564 Web Cam Central Malfunction (windows 7)

Dell Inspiron 1564 Web Cam Central Malfunction (windows 7)


Please don't mind guys,this is my repeat complaint about web cam.
since i bought this lappy,web cam doesn't operate as it should,every time i have to
fiddle the lid multiple times until video starts streaming,and every time its shows
unsupported web cam,so i tried to update,uninstalled,installed different types of v ersion like,1.01.05,1.4o. uninstalled driver from device manager,update driver,still no luck.
Right now on 2.00.46 version of web cam,whenever i start web cam,this message appears on screen of web cam on video recording


I'm really tired and worried about this problem,as i cannot video chat in skype.
it would be great if someone knows what causes this to malfunction from it.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
