Poor webcam. very dark and grainy. - PC Laptops


Answers :

Usually this happens when the computer is "well-traveled" or an older model. It's likely that the lens is just dirty. Use a camera cleaning kit (usually less than $10 at Wal-mart) and clean the lens. If you don't have access to a camera cleaning kit, use 99% alcolol and a Q-tip. DON'T USE ISOPROPYL (RUBBING) ALCOHOL. Isopropyl alcohol is only 70% alcohol and will leave a residue on the lens that will be just as bad as the dirt.

The webcam on my Dell Studio 15 worked fine when I first got it. Sure the picture quality was poor unless you have the right lighting (sunlight, I have to be near my window) but the audio was not bad. Now the audio makes a loud buzzing whirring sound/noise that overpowers my voice when I record videos. I've fixed this problem once before, but I can't remember what I did. I tried resetting the webcam settings, but it made the picture quality worse. I wondered if the sound was coming from a machin
