Dell Latitude XT3 :: Webcam Central Image Rotation Request
Aug 6, 2012
I have an XT3 with the built-in webcam. When I use the tablet in portrait mode, the webcam image stays oriented for landscape mode. Can we get a driver update to correct the image rotation when using the webcam in portrait mode?
my laptop was running extremely slow, so I decided I wanted to wipe it. Where my OS disc and other discs were, so I tried using one from an alienware laptop. It worked for a temporary fix but said it would expire in 30 days. I called Dell and ordered a new OS disc and the other discs that come with my laptop.
I got my laptop up and running again, but before I wiped it I had dell webcam central and now I don't! I'm not sure how to open my webcam and take pictures
Today I found an error in device manager "unknown usb device descriptor request failed" with error code 43. Then I found out webcam doesn't work/disappear. So I try to fix the problem and reset bios setting seem to get it back.
But in windows when I try to use webcam, at first it seem to work normally but after a few minutes it disappear and reappear immediately. Repeating this a few time it was again disappeared with the same "unknown usb device descriptor request failed" error.
Repeating the same bios thing again and it's back, running normally. Then I leave webcam program on(cyberlink youcam) to observe. It working fine for around ten minutes then it was repeating disappear and reappear again and this time it blinking like in this video [URL] .... so I turn off webcam, leave it for minutes and running youcam again and it's back to normal(Still working normally when I post this (working for around 25 minute now)).
What cause this. Does this mean my webcam is failing?
Also my webcam LED indicator flickering rapidly like the light bulb when turn webcam on and stop flickering when I point the bright light to the webcam. Is this normal?
Right after I post this it disappear and reappear again but only one time not repeating.
Now "unknown usb device descriptor request failed" is back and webcam disappear again.
Why can"t I get the Dell Webcam Central to load on my inspiron 1545? I have downloaded it twice from the support site for my service tag and each time i attempt t install it and it shows a coorupt or incomplete download
I'm starting customising my new Latitude E5550 laptop.
After turning on Bitlocker I noticed that when I shut down the laptop, it goes to sleep. Even if I logoff first then request a shutdown it still just goes to sleep. I can request a restart which does work - it restarts, but a shutdown still makes it go to sleep. I can hold the power button to force it off. Doing that or when requesting a restart, the laptop starts back up but I find that the laptop goes into Flight mode. The Flight mode symbol is visible even before you logon.
I turned off Bitlocker, and the problem has gone away. Is there a solution for this?
Should I use the Dell DDP Encryption product instead?
I have had my Y510 for 5 weeks. Last week I began getting a message that said:Failed to get data from camera.The camera may have been unplugged or busy whenever I starting my computer.
At the time no program was running that was using the webcam and I hadn't disable it. I uninstalled and reinstalled several times and it didn't fix the problem so, I downloaded and installed Veriface III. Now the webcam image is upside down and doesn't work in the VideoChat program that I used it in previously. My OS is Vista.
my laptop is HP 6107 TX and i have an integrated webcam, which worked the first few days after I bought it, but after that the webcam screen just shows plain black. But the strange thing is if I bring a luminous object, like a phone screen near it it shows a green image of the phone on the screen :
The 720p webcam in my new Edge E430 (I just got it last Thursday) is not working properly. When I use the Communications Utility or Skype, the green light next to the webcam turns on, but the image window only shows a completely black image. Also, when I increase the brightness or contrast settings of the webcam, the image becomes completely gray or completely white.
The Device Manager shows two devices - the "Integrated Camera" and the "Virtual Camera." I have already tried uninstalling/reinstalling the webcam drivers, but that hasn't worked. What else can I do?
The integrated webcam on my E4310 is not being recognised anywhere. This is a topic which already has several previous discussions, but without any solution for me. The webcam doesn't appear in device manager:
and is not recognised on skype, or the Dell Webcam Central. When put through the Dell diagnostics test it says no camera is installed. Is it possible that there is no webcam on this laptop and what I see above the screen is something else?
i bought my dell laptop from the website (malaysia), and after a couple of month using the touchpad seems to be not working. Called them and they sent a technician to repair it on site, only to see him bringing 2 parts that were not related to the problem (motherboard & keyboard), which was he replaced mine with the new one anyway.
But that still did not fix the touchpad (in his defense, he said "they" only gave him those parts and he has no clue why), so he said he will get back to me about the touchpad and meet up another day to replace the correct part.
Now im writing not to complaint about the touchpad, but the screen rotation. After the temporary "fix" it seems that whenever i tilt my screen sideways or upside down, screen rotates as normal. Problem is, it wont rotate back to the original orientation when i tilt it back.
Eventually after he left, did some tinkering around and found 3 methods that worked:
1. pressing ctrl + alt + up arrow
2. change the orientation settings in Intel HD graphic properties
3. this one is weird a bit, i had to open up the laptop screen so its flat with the keyboard, THEN only the screen rotation works like normal if i tilt the whole thing upright.
But these methods did not fix the orientation problem, its more of a temporary solution as it wont tilt back to the original position in the "laptop mode".
Grand Central Dispatch may not exactly be a household name to the average Apple user, but it's certainly a hot topic among developers, who may know it better as "libdispatch," and are no doubt thrilled that Apple has now made the whole thing open source. Among other things, that means developers are now able to take full advantage of multi-core processors in Snow Leopard, which obviously has some fairly big implications for applications as soon as those developers are able to get a handle on things.

i have a sony vaio notebook with the os vista home premium.
It came with only one partition which i am plannig to resize to add another couple.
My question is the following, if in the future i will want to recover my computer, using the recovery tool, will i lose all the new partitions and the data included in them or it will only revert the windows partition? (at the moment there is only a C: partition, where windows is installed)
I've come to just about my wits end with the Yoga 2 Pro transitions. The sensors are just far too touchy for my liking.
For example, If I lean forward at all with it or lay the screen flat, the keyboard and touchpad disables and/or the screen rotates 180 degrees because it thinks I'm in a different mode. Sometimes I lay on my side and rotate the computer 90 degrees with me and the screen rotates, which is not what I want.
I am having extreme difficulty discovering where to disable the rotation and keyboard/mouse disabling. Where I can find the option to either alter this feature to my liking or shut it off completely?
I installed a new video driver today (updated to newest), and all of a sudden my screen is flashing before it rotates when i flip it to tent mode or tablet mode. to be specific, when i flip the screen over, the screen flashes off and back on, before rotating. this has never happened before.
Us VAIO users will most likely have (and still do) experienced the common and annoying battery drain issue, which Sony has dubbed a 'feature'.
Sure, Lithium ion batteries do suffer some degrading when charged near 100% or fully discharged at 0%, but many here will have experienced the battery draining from 80% (Battery Care on) to 30% (a few days later), which, to everyone here, is NOT beneficial to the battery in any way............
I have installed a clean Windows 8.1 on the Helix and have several issues. Putting them into several threads so they can be answered independently. The first thing I did after installing the system (and critical Windows Updates) was running the Lenovo System Update tool and downloading everything.
Screen rotation does not work. In “Device Manager” I can see “C5621 gw Mobile Broadband Geolocation Sensor” and “Hid Sensor Collection”. The HID one has an exclamation mark next to it. Are there some drivers I need to download to make this work. I did of course check if screen rotation is not locked – it is not (I did turn it on/off a couple of times, without any effect). Manual rotation (using display settings) works fine.
