    Here what i can suggest you is that close all applications that currently use the webcam. Save and close all applications in use because the system will need to restart.

    • Click Start.
    • Right-click on Computer.
    • Click Properties.
    • Click Device Manager on the left side.
    • Click Imaging devices.
    • Click the right mouse button on the integrated webcam.
    • Click Uninstall.
    • Follow the instructions to uninstall the driver.
    • Once the uninstall is complete, restart the computer.

    I think that this issue is somewhere related to the drivers so i would suggest you to get the drivers installed on your system you can do this either by using driver CD which you have received along with the laptop or if you are unable to find the CD then simply you can get the drivers online from the official website of the manufacturer.

    i would suggest you few simple steps in order to get your webcam back to work on your system once again since this situation clearly indicates that the web-cam is not detected by the laptop since you have not initialized the web-cam from the start menu. For initializing the same simply follow the steps which are mentioned below
    • Click Start on the start Menu.
    • Go to All Programs.
    • Click on the webcam Dell.
    • Webcam Central Click to launch the application.
