Having problems with your Dell Studio 1737 Laptop ?

Web cam says to close other video streaming application before it can proceed but there are no applications open


Answers :

I have an answer! I've tried many times to fix this problem on my\015\012laptop, even talking to two dell reps in the process(which was\015\012worthless). Finally I found the problem(for me, at least)- my webcam's\015\012driver was not compatible. If you haven't tried this already, go to\015\012your Device Manager, click the plus sign next to Imaging Devices, and\015\012select Integrated Webcam. Right click that and select Update Driver\015\012Software. I downloaded the latest driver it found and restarted my\015\012computer, and miraculously my webcam central was back to normal. I hope\015\012this helps you too!
I had the same problem on two computers and finally tracked it down to the following. I was running a face recognition program for logging in to Windows and this app was always running in the background to be ready to accept a face when the computer locked. So what I do now is right-click on the app (FastAccess Face Recognition) and temporarily disable it - the Dell Webcam Central works fine. Afterwards I just re-enable the face recognition app.
