What webcam are you trying to install. Most of the time it will be a USB connect webcam and you can follow the directions that cam with the webcam. If you do not have the directions or software to the webcam, do a search on the particular cam (Name, Model Number) to find the software so it can install the supported drivers.
Hope this helps-

wow the word phone and PC in one posting. wow.
A FORD found on Road Dead. a 9year old PC, 2009 made
not even close to new that.
so what is wrong,well it is "dead Jim", as stated by McCoy so many times. but free is free sure..... and dead is worth $10 for parts,.

sorry for jokes but we love Dead JIM, for sure in this forum ,end to end DEAD things.

Steps are simple. and SERIAL. Ive posted them here 100 times.
1: take out the big huge battery. on AC pack run it only.
try a new pack>?
2: runs now, no? screen dead?no text on screen ever????????
not even (hit xzy to enter setup?) no logos'
or no boot, found messages. (sure dead, if fan is)

3: still makes no sounds , the fan or fans must spin, seen and heard AND FELT to blow air out the exhaust port if fans are dead that means POWER is dead. for sure. DEAD POWER.

4: the coin cell battery is doomed at 9 year old, 2 years past makers spec on battery. 5-7 year life rated,
but most times bad COIN cell does not kill fan dead,(but might?)
BIOS runs the fan.... so............
BIOS is now dead, if screen is blank., and fans dead.
the 2009 made PC or older can have CCLF lamps inside dead. too.

here are the list of things that fail on all 1545s made.
based on staticical facts, (for those not wanting to test a, but guess)
9 years later. (from new)
  • The old large battery is no good,worse shorted, get it out there and keep it out. run on AC only for now or forever.
  • CCFL lamps are dead, no text ever, but does not kill fan,.
  • tiny COIN cell dead, makes BIOS go NUTS.
  • HDD *****. 10 years is 7 dog years on any Laptop HDD, ok?
  • keyboard dead from coffee spills endless.
  • bad ac power pack, or weak or wrong pack used.
  • if you lost the Ac pack well, what can I say.?

CCFL are back lamp tubes on the LCD panel.
the do not last over 20,000 hours or 5 years (par)
the the PC sat in and attic for 5 years dead, the CCFL can be good.
see? how age matters.

Not only that, I expect 2 things bad. (making diagnosis harder)
black screens of *****,

Dell Computers &... | Answered on Dec 05, 2018

seem like display problems get it serviced?
if it has AC power pack, this is the only cheap fix.
8-$15 cost.
if pack fails and is weak, this might happen.
bios blurry means bad display parts, or bad power feed (power pack week)
also a real shop can see your screen but,I cant.

age matters is this 8 years old 2010
mini 10, 1012? page 10 covers coin cell pull, (hard job)

Q1, why ask here and not, they made it and make the rules, here.
there is no generally, sorry, there are 3 generations of PC.
so 3 gens is the answer.
jumper and coin cell pulls
gen2, back door PW.

and the modern by law way , UEFI way. TPM chips and all.

my guess is gen2, due to AGE alone.

why not ask dell how to do this, they designed it,
here I am searching for you in the correct place, at dell.
they will tell you , call DELL.
1: ask the person that set this PW what is the PW.
2: if that is lost you get to prove you own it at (on the phone)
3: if at wits end , hacking. (pulling the coin cell on modern PC is useless) works on Gen1 very old PCs only.
4: google all week for hacks? there are some. and many brick the PC for ever....
