I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Please could someone explain how to use my integrated webcam? I see that I have it installed, but I don't actually understand how I can use it.
Sorry for being such a novice.
 

A:Integrated webcam Vostro 1015 DELL

There must be some preinstalled webcam software in there supplied by Dell.
I would check in your Programs. It might be Dell Webcam Central. The Inspirons had that, can only assume it would be similar to the Vostros.

I've owned this laptop for quite a while and had been using Webcam Central to control the Integrated Webcam on my Alienware M17x R4.   I never had any issues using Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or even Windows 10 until my system updated on 8/20/2016 with a scheduled Windows 10 update.
After the windows 10 update my system restarted and the next time I went to use my webcam I noticed that I couldn't control the pan / zoom / or tilt or alter any of the settings in webcam central.  If I attempt to change anything it automatically changes back instantly.  For example of I move the slider to zoom, or attempt to change the pan, it auto goes back to where it was and will not allow me to change the settings.
I also notice that my mouse pointer flickers over the webcam central GUI, meaning, there seems to be some issue with the GUI after the windows 10 update, I assume is also whats causing the settings not to be changed.
I have tried uninstalling both the drivers and software and reinstalling to no avail, same problem is present after reinstallation of both drivers and the webcam central software.
Wondering if anyone else has run into this and whether there was some type of resolution.
I was able to get the pan / zoom / tilt working with 3rd party webcam software, however I would prefer to go back to using webcam central.

Not exactly a good solution, is it?It was clear though MS updates messed up with the webcam driver - I checked myself at Devices/Imaging there was an update for the driver done exactly when MS updates were done.

Recently my webcam has just stopped functioning. This laptop is brand new however and I just got it on the 14th.
I have no clue why it wont' work anymore. I checked under device manager and under Imaging devices its called "facap, FastAccess Video Capture".
I enabled it, for some reason it had become disabled, and it wouldn't work. And it seems no Driver updates are available. Also have tried reinstalling the driver but it didn't work. I then uninstalled the old driver and tried to install the driver and it failed. So I used Windows Restore Point feature thing. Now its just disabled.
Any ideas on how to fix it?

A:Webcam Not Working. Alienware M17X, Intergrated Webcam.

I found my solution!    Though... it kinda is a "Doh!" kinda thing.
Apparently FN+F9 will enable or disable the webcam!
It seems that I had done this inadvertently at some point and turned it off, and while messing around for a solution the other day, II tried the combo it turned back on the webcam!
Quite a powerful key combination I have to say if manually enabling the web cam and reinstalling the web cam driver don't do anything.

Hi all,So, as the username hopefully indicates - a newbie to the x200s, which I bought recently, though I've been using thinkpad products for a few years now (a devoted fan!)My x200s did not come with a webcam and, since I am thousands of miles from home, I reckoned I would try and install one manually. Note that I have swaped its HDD for an SD & changed keyboard in the past with no problem, so I was assuming (foolishly, perhaps!) that vaguely knew what I was doing.I followed the instructions and user experiences on this thread, I purchased this camera - and got off to work.Even though everything seemed fine when adding the camera to the system, a strange thing happened after I rebooted (I run Linux Mint 16): neither the webcam, nor the thinklight were now working. After lots of testing, I assumed I must have just destroyed part of the cable during installation, and so I purchased this cable (Lenovo ThinkPad X200 LCD Video Cable 44C9909) and tried again. Same result! The only difference is that the first time round, an "lsusb" command on linux would return a Ricoh product (and I assume that's the webcam), but it would still not be recognised by Mint, while now, there's nothing. In both cases, the Thinklight didn't work.Since both the thinklight and the webcam come out at the same end (see the right end of the cable on this picture) I am assuming, of course, that the two are related.Would anyone know which of the clips on the left end of the cable on the same picture, abov...

I am using a video surveillance program (webcamXP), and I would like to use both my integrated webcam (laptop) AND my logitech webcam (C310) as sources; however, it looks like my integrated webcam is not accessible when I plug in the UBS webcam. From the program's perspective, there is only one source which corresponds to whatever webcam is available (integrated webcam when USB is unplugged, and vise versa).

I would expect both sources to be available. I'm thinking somehow the computer is seeing the USB webcam and just overriding the integrated webcam. Is there anything I can do to verify this and/or change it to make both available?

It's totally possible that it could be the program, but I was unable to find any settings to get it working.

I'm running Windows 7.

I apologize in advance for my fevered nature I'm just a little bit frustrated over this.

My boyfriend bought me a Microsoft LifeCam vx-5000 today. After the initial frustration of getting my webcam to actually broadcast video via the internet I became increasingly angry over the fact that everything, even the music player I was using on a different tab froze or lagged severely after only a few seconds of my broadcasting. People would freeze or there would be a lapse in messages and then the video would start up again and/or the messages would come in droves.

My Internet works fine and is quite fast when my webcam is not on. My computer, while about 4 years old works relatively quickly and I am able to use that quickly when the webcam is on. Also, this problem only happens when the webcam is being used with the internet and nothing freezes or slows when the webcam and the internet are not connected (just using the webcam program and not utilizing say chatroulette or tinychat.)

Everyone I chat with says that they can see me clearly and I do not lag or freeze at all. Also, on my computer my webcam does not freeze or lag at all. I am incredibly frustrated because internet searches have proven to be useless because everyone complains about their webcam freezing when my problem is the complete opposite.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.

A:Webcam freezes everything BUT my webcam

Hi and welcome to the forums .

Please could you fill in your System Specs under User CP, this will give us a better idea of what the problem could be.

According to Microsoft for this to work with Vista you have to download something from there website (Windows Vista Compatibility Microsoft LifeCam VX-5000 1.3MP Webcam USB 2.0).

If you haven't already installed this please do.

If you use your webcam normally with no internet connection, to say record a video, does the machine still lag?

Hi, as stated I have a Vostro 200 Slim, I bought an Asus EAH3450 PCI-e low profile, card works ok on another computer, in the Vostro I don't get any video, if I change the VGA conector to the onboard video with the computer on there's a screen saying that I must disconnect that cable and connect it to the new card, which is what I already did, its like the onboard video keeps detecting the monitor even if it isn't plugged in anymore, any ideas??? TIA

A:Vostro 200 PCI-e Problem

I found  a solution. Well, for the Vostro 220, but I think it will work for your issue. Go to my computer and right-click - select manager. Expand display adapters and then right click on the first one and select disable. Mine is an Intel (not sure on the specofoc model). Then reboot the PC with your VGA or DVI cable connected to the Nvidia card. You might want to check the BIOS to see if you have the PCI-express card enabled on boot. This was under my advance chipset options. Then install the Nvidia drivers if they have not been installed. I have an Nvidia Quad 290 PCI-e and have done this with a 280 PCI. I only have this issue with Vostros as I have done this with HP's and was easy plug and play, install driver. After the reboot alter your graphics options through Nvidia control panel. Hope this helps.

hello, can someone check out my hijack this log and see what my next step should be: I'm cautiously trying to get my son's laptop (vostro 1510 with win XP) back from a state where only safe mode would work, it froze up at the log-in page. Once I removed the password in safe mode, I got to the desktop but it froze up. By starting in diagnostic start-up, I gradually moved up to selective start-up where I am now (unchecked all programs except for bitdefender total security and all microsoft services). In between all that, I got numerous blue screens (they all had different tech info i.e. 0x0000007a or 8e or f4 or 77 or 7f; a couple had "kernel data inpage error" or "kernel stack inpage error" and the last couple didn't refer to any kernel error), and frozen state always happened when the power shut down after standing idle (I then changed power option to monitor never turning off). I also managed to get it scanned for viruses and spyware using bitdefender, got all that off, I think............ lots of it ! and ran the bitdefender registry cleaner. Right now in the selective startup, nothing is freezing.

I believe it has AUX Power printed above it.   Any help would be greatly appreciated.
This system was recently upgraded to windows 10.  I only have the original system Windows 7 disk.  ugh.., and ugh.,

I'm saying "considering" as I'm not great at taking laptops apart. I found a manual which indicates that it's not all that hard... but my other choice is getting someone to do it and charge me $40.
Has anyone installed a new battery on a Vostro 130 or something similar?

I want to add a 3rd monitor to my Vostro 200.  I currently have an nVidia GeForce 8400 GS video adapter that I have configured for two monitors.  I want to make sure that I can add a second video graphics card for the 3rd (and possibly 4th) monitors.
The OS is Windows 10 Pro.  The CPU is a Core 2 Duo Pentium E2200 at 2.2GHz.
I appreciate any responses.

My Dell Vostro 260 is getting a message on startup saying that Windows failed to start, giving me two options: launch startup repair, or start Windows normally. When you select startup repair, it just goes to a blank screen for all eternity, and when you try to launch Windows normally it freezes at the very beginning of the Windows logo thing. Please help

A:Dell Vostro 260 help

Reboot and immediately press F12. Look for the option to run the Diagnostics. Run the extended hard drive tests. Copy the error message, if any...
If no HDD errors, you may have to repair Windows (what version?) using a bootable USB stick...
Sure hope your personal files are backed up on external media!

I apologise for the length and complexity of my problem. There are a lot of elements to it, and my ignorance shines through all of them. Also, I have a tendency to be a bit verbose.

I bought a second hand Dell Vostro 360 last year. When I got it, it was running windows 7, but I used the free upgrade to windows 10. It worked OK for a while, and then it started having boot problems. It would hang and give me a blank screen. I checked the disk and after a long while it came up with an error on the hard drive.
So I put it to one side for a few months.
My wife suffers from Menier's Disease, which as well as balance problems, has caused her to lose 100% of her hearing in one ear, and over 70% in the other. Her hearing loss is degenerative, in that it gets worse over time. She hasn't been able to listen to music for four or five years, and we haven't had a real conversation for about four years.
We have started using Google Docs Dictation, on a laptop, and it's great. So much better than nothing. There are problems but the improvement in our life is phenomenal. We decided that it would be good if we could use the Dell Vostro 360 all-in-one as a dedicated machine. I would hang it on the wall, (next to the TV), buy a wireless microphone, get it to react to voice commands (sleep, wake) and make the text large enough etc so that she can read it as she does with sub-titles. All of which I should be capable of.

However the first thing I need to do is to get the Vos... Read more

The Dell Vostro 360 All-In-One Desktop appears to originally come with Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
What's the exact 7-character "service tag" number on yours?

Buying a second-hand 2 TB SATA hard drive on eBay wasn't a good idea because you have no way of knowing what condition it's in and how soon it'll fail.

If that Dell was already running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit before you started having issues with it, doing a clean install and getting a fresh start would be a good idea.
If you download and save the Media Creation Tool, then use it to download and save the appropriate Windows 10 .ISO file, then burn it to and create a bootable install DVD, you'll be good to go.

The "Fall Creators Update" Version 1709 Build 162xx upgrade will be released next month, so that means a new updated Media Creation Tool will made available, so you may want to wait until then before doing a clean install of Windows 10.

Hello my name is Dave and im having troubles with my Dell Vostro 1000. Ok Im a computer tech. So atleast i like to think so. But when it comes to laptops not so much! I could build, Fix, Tear apart PC's But im not so good with laptops. My issue is that when i got this laptop the lady said it was working then it just died. So when she said i could have it i ofcourse said yes i never turndown a free computer or laptop. So i took the computer home plugged it in and it turned on. So i felt bad that this lady just gave me a free laptop. So i called her up and said listen i plugged it in and it works fine. She said give it alittle it will shut off. So sure enough it did. So i put in 3 different hard drives formatted the all and put windows xp on them and all 3 of them after I installed everything hard this wierd sound like a high pitch winding down noise then a click. and it shuts down or turns off. Some time it goes to a blue screen that has some codes on it and says memory dump. Now i could type them codes down but i was just wondering if anyone has had this problem or might know what it might be. If you need the error codes ill be more then happy to type them in for ya. thanks in advance. Much help needed cause its a really nice laptop and i wouldnt mind keeping it for myself.

Hello Dave & welcome to the forum!

Is it getting hot? Turn it over, remove the battery, unplug it & spray the vents & cpu fan out with compressed air.
Make sure that the cpu fan is spinning when powered on.

Reseat & test the memory with mem386.
Thats what I would do

System has been working well for ages. A few weekends ago my wife restarted system and it just hanged on a black screen and cursor. Then it ultimately presented a message that it cannot boot from the CD or hard drive. 
 
I disconnected the power and the internet cable and it restarted. 
 
Yesterday I rebooted it before going to bed and found upon waking the same symptoms as before. 
 
I have disconnected the power and internet cable and awaiting some insight on this problem from the message board.

Hi 

I have a question on Dell Vostro all in one 360 desktop RAM upgrade. On user manual it says max memory allowed is 8GB, however I downloaded Dell System Detect which says max memory allowed is 32GB.

Currently it has 6GB in total (1 x 4GB and 1 x 2GB).

Which one should I trust?

Thanks
