I've browsed several forums with this issue, and cannot get a fix.
I upgraded a Dell Inspiron 1545 from Vista 64 to 7 64. Everything went off without a hitch (boy was I surprised).
Now that I have it all up and running, I cannot get my webcam working.
I have attempted to install the drivers off the Dell CD that came with the laptop. These are Vista 64 drivers, and they don't work. I have downloaded the drivers from the dell website - they are the same drivers as the CD.
Someone told me I could 'run the webcam in compatibility mode', but if the computer isn't even recognizing the webcam, how would that work?
Device Manager says the webcam is working properly.
I'm at my wits end with this. I really don't want to have to downgrade to Vista, but it's pretty important that this camera work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
