Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook ?

My Dell built in Web cam on my inspiron 1520 says I need a parent control password. I have not set a password so I don't know what it is or how to get it off so I can use my camera again. It worked the first year I had this camera. I have tried to reload the driver and update it but it still asks for a parent control password.


Answers :

The only way around this that I know of is to re-install the OS. This will reset your Dell to factory settings you will need to back up all your files to another harddrive or disk before doing this procedure. You will lose all your custom settings. But it may be worth it to use the cam.Make sure you read carefully on how to do this procedure before attempting it.Check with someone who has done this before or bring it to someone who knows how to do this. Make sure you back up files to another harddrive or disk before attempting to do this procedure.
