webcam woes dell/inspiron 530s

  todd2 03:58 AM 26 Jun 11

I have a dell inspiron 530s and am using a 2208wfp monitor with a built-in camera. It used to work. Now I am getting a "webcam driver not installed" error in the webcam console. When I installed from the disk, it said that I had to connect a USB. I never had to before and I even bought one, but that didn't change the message.

I have searched all over (esp with Dell) for drivers that could help, but to no avail.

Bewildered and bothered. Can anyone help?

Try a System Restore back to a date when it worked OK.

Thank you for the idea. I don't know how to do this to go as far back as I would need (December, most likely)

You don't say what operating system you are using?

Lets see if I can get these links right:
