Answers :

Somewhere on your Dell is a program, that if you will run it, which will activate your camera. I don't have a Dell, but I have several Compaq and Acer laptops similarly equipped. I found my software in a folder on the All Programs menu.

\015\012You can alternatively open your control panel and look for a camera related folder. Open the folder and see what is inside. I bet you will find your answer.

\015\012As for running a video chat ... they are everywhere. Find the site you like and it will almost do it itself. In fact, you may have to be careful with this device as it is so simple, it may be running when you don't expect it to be running.
