Can you please go to device manager, Uninstall the webcam drivers and restart your computer to see if it will recognize and find the drivers by itself.

One thing common you can try, is have device manager open, and move your screen slowly back and forth. Does device manager pick up the camera drivers while you are doing this?

Also try and Check in Setup/Settings (BIOS/CMOS) as you boot - usually F2 so watch screen - see if there
is an enable/disable for your camera.

The webcam may be shot.

Yawcam is an extremely popular free application for webcams. Download and install it on this computer and see if it detects the webcam at all.

When you did the reinstall, did you reinstall all the required drivers for the computer?
One major one is the one found HERE which is the chipset driver for your computer.

You can also find the other drivers HERE .

Typically main drivers for a computer are these (and are usually done in this order):

System Software (usually only unique to DELL)
Chipset
Video
Sound
LAN (be sure you have anti-virus installed first)
Any other drivers at this point.

Do you have a category in Device Manager called "Other Devices"? If not, its safe to say they did.

If you do have something listed there, what is it?

You have all the necessary ones then.

Try downloading Yawcam and see if it will work. It could simply be a flaky issue with the software.

Maybe if i reboot the system again it will come back probably because it is weird if it's built in it should be detected.
