Dell :: Studio 15 Webcam Center "No Supported Webcam Driver Detected" SOLVED
May 18, 2009
A few days before I was going to shipping my Studio 15 off. I looked in the box and low and behold I found the Dell Webcam Center disk that I originally thought that Dell had forgotten to include.
Upon installation I found that the specific version of Dell WC that came with my Studio 15 is not the same one that you find at the downloads center on support.dell.com.
I could never get the downloaded Dell WC to work, even after numerous chats with technical support. No matter how many times I contacted Dell about this, they claimed there is only one version of Dell Webcam Center. Clearly that isn't true .....
I have a DELL Studio 1555 with Windows 7 32 bit Professional OS .It's been pretty great.Only problem is that today I clicked on my webcam as I wanted to use it,and it gives me the above error message.I have NO clue what to do. I really wanna use Skype.
I tried to see the webcam driver updates but i cant find any on the website for the Windows 7 32 bit version .I also reinstalled my OS but the problem remained the same.
i know this might not be that important but i have W7 installed on my m1530 and when i had vista i can run audio effects and video effects and control the color of my cam...but now i am not able to do that but the cam still works
Okay, so all was working fine until today, my webcam has stopped working, When i boot Dell Webcam Central i get a message at the bottom stating "No supported webcam connected".
Video chats on MSN and facebook do not work, it's like the webcam no longer exists.
I think it was caused by some other webcam software, which i've since uninstalled.
I've tried reinstalling the "Quanta H.264 Integrate Webcam Rev: A00" driver from the resource disk - it did not work.
I've tried to use system restore to restore to a time i KNOW the webcam was working, it did not work.
I was trying to find the executable to reinstall Webcam Central to see if that had any effect, Went to the "Download Factory Installed Software (My Dell Downloads)" section of the website, and i get this message:
Register Your System
Please proceed to register your system by clicking "Register New System". Registration will allow us to display the software entitled for download. You will be automatically registered after your click "allow" on the service tag scanning utility.
I tick the box and click Register System - Nothing happens. It just stays on the same page. I thought this was because i was in Firefox so i tried IE... same problem. Except this time IE has an error on page.
So... i tried emailing dell support... yet ANOTHER error:
Error determining system information. Please try again later.

Just purchased my new Pavilion dv7, and when I run the You Cam software, it tells me my HP TrueVision HD webcam is not detected. I have tried at this for several days now, at one point when I was trying to fiddle with the You Cam settings, the webcam light turned on for aprox. 2 seconds and then went dead again, since then it won't even let me into the YouCam settings. Right now I'm becoming more and more convinced that this is due to my laptop being assembled outside the US. Need a fix for this immediately.
i have brought this HP 15-r007tx Notebook PC & installed windows 8.1. i got all the drivers for it except webcam driver.i installed cyberlink youcam driver it shows "no webcam detected".
imaging device is not listed in device manager,i think there is a software or driver for hp truevision hd webcam as i have seen in another same laptop since its not installed in my laptop maybe webcam is not detected.
I have a dv6-7010us hp laptop and every time I try to use the webcam it says that no device is detected and I need to turn it on. I am pretty sure I have the latest software for youcam. I can not find the webcam anywhere in my programs or devices. I need turning it on and finding it?
I have an integrated webcam and my HP Pavilion dv6 now shows this message with a yellow triangle "no webcam installed". How do I fix? My HP Pavilion is really starting to fail. Cyberlink won't let me update software because it claims I don't have the full version. Didn't HP install the full version with my laptop?
I have not used my webcam for a while, but recently updated Skype. When I went to use the web cam it was not detected. When I try Cyberlink Ucam it says no webcam detected. I checked the driver in Device Manager and it is ok. I used HP Recovery Manager and reinstalled the Cyberlink software but it is still undetected. Is there some keyboard switch for the camera or something simple that I am missing??
I installed dell webcam central in the hopes that would update the driver, but although the webcam central SW works, the driver has not been updated in device manager. It still says the MS Integrated Webcam 6.1.7600.16385.
What do other people who have no problems with their webcam see under device manager for their imaging device, and where did you find the driver?
a new 6730b and the one serious remaining problem I have is that the battery, even though plugged in on AC, displays as 'plugged in not charging'.
I've discovered - by endless hours of hard slog - that the webcam driver is actually the issue here. I've uninstalled the chicony software and, on the few occasions that I've succeeded in uninstalling the driver & kept it uninstalled for the next start-up, the battery recommences charging. But in recent days it's reverted to reinstalling the driver on start-up, and stopping the battery recharging.
I can't seem to permanently remove the driver, no matter how hard I try. And I really, really want to! The driver uninstall or disable in Device Manager only gets rid of it until the next start up (and unless I can restart without it reinstalling, the battery doesn't get kicked into recharge).
I've even tried deleting the driver from WindowsSystem32drivers - I changed all the permissions to enable me to delete and... deleted it! Even double checked that it had gone to the recycle bin. Yes, it's there.
But I restart after all this and the damn thing has magically put itself back in the same file.
To all of you who have had or still having problem in getting your webcam to work or get detected by your laptop try this.
Almost everyone who has formatted their hard drives and/or done a clean install of the OS has come into contact with this problem from what I have read... Uninstall all Dell webcam software and download and install ManyCam webcam software, by all accounts the Dell webcam software is the villain here.
Once this is installed your webcam should now be detected by the system and now work. ManyCam is a freeware program I have no means of testing this due to the fact all my systems are M1330 XPS.
I bought new Dell studio 1535. with 4gb ram, 2Gcore2due etc. My webcam setting isnt right. (i am in my room's bright environment) see this is the picture takken with default settingz with this default settingz. even if i increase gamma and brightness,, then quality is shaky. anybody tell me the exact settingz.
This looked like a knowledgeable and friendly place to share my experiences with so I decided to join. =)
Bear with me, my laptop has quite a history for the 4 weeks I've had it. I bought this laptop from DELL outlet and I really like it. It originally had an AMD board and processor with the HD3200 graphics. To make a long story short the AMD board got too hot for my comfort so I sold it and bought an Intel board so here I am.
Onto the webcam. The first day I got the laptop the webcam worked great with the DELL Webcam Center .....
I have reinstalled my original Vista Home Premium 32bit using the recovery partition. All is well, except I can't make the webcam recognizable to the system. Therefore, I can't use my Skype video call function. When I had the factory installed OS, Skype video call worked perfectly.
I have been all over the Internet trying to find software - YouCam, Quickplay, SP37849, SP46565, SP38361 and SP 45866 - all to no avail. None of the software would install, except Quickplay (SP38361).
In the Device Manager, under Imaging Devices, there is no webcam driver listed, only my HP 6700 All-in-One printer/scanner. Is there a possibility that only one imaging device can be installed at one time?
My problem goes as following:One day I realised I cannot use my built in camera anymore. Tried reinstalling original preinstalled Cyberlink Youcam software, but as you can assume if that worked - I wouldn't be here. Then I tried troubleshooting according to HP guide. The problem is there is no category called "Imaging devices" at all.
I can place two bets on what could actually happen:
a) somehow I managed to delete basic HP webcam 101 driver.
The exact name of the device is: USBVID_05C8&PID_021E&MI_00
b) internal camera itself broke down (it's not unplugged cord issue - made sure myself)
I believe I could try installing basic separate driver for the camera, the problem is I cannot find one/cannot find reliable source. Could you send me/upload it for me?
