    Do try the link from learninmypc... but based on the information in the file you attached, it looks to me like your web cam has failed :(

    That's why the information in that file you attached indicates Connected=No.

    Click the link, click the Allow button & if all is ok, you should see yourself or whatever the webcam is focused on. It won't hurt anything & it could help others in here help you .

    Hi! I have a similar problem, slightly. I have an Inspiron that I've had for over a year, and my webcam has always worked for me, my primary use being Skype. When I signed on to skype a few days ago, I was notified that my webcam can not be detected, and isn't being detected by my computer as a whole. I've followed this post and ran the check on the system. Would you mind checking out the report?

    If I understand what you're saying, that link has nothing to do with "knowing your cam detail".

    Hi Grace and welcome to TechSpot!

    I'm afraid it's bad news. Your data also confirms Windows no longer detects your webcam :( Here's what I see (so you can too)

    Run the DevManView tool again. Scroll down to the entry named
    Integrated Webcam. In your case, that name is (was) the device / driver entry for your webcam. If you scroll right to look at the columnar data for this web cam entry, notice column Connected = No.

    The entry exists because your cam was detected and its driver was installed at an earlier point in time. But Connected=No indicates Windows is not currently detecting this hardware entry. :(
