    Default camera on Latitude D830

    We now have Skype on our computer to keep in touch with some family in Balitmore. Once we started using it, the computer said it could not detect the camera. What do I need to do to have the computer 'activate' the camera? I've looked everywhere I can think of. Not that computer savy so any help will be appreciated.

    Is the webcam listed under Imaging Devices in Device Manager? If not, check the BIOS setup to make sure that it is not disabled (assuming that it is a built-in webcam). If Device Manager is listing an unconfigured device then perhaps you need to install the webcam driver.

    Does the D830 have an integrated webcam? Or, are you trying to use an external camera? Does the webcam work with other applications?

    I've never heard of any of the D-series Latitudes having webcams; perhaps the OP is confused with the light sensor (which is used to adjust LCD illumination intensity, but really doesn't work very well!).

    Me neither, but a quick search about the D830 revealed some (questionable) sources claiming that it has an integrated webcam. My gut instinct says no webcam too.

    I agree with the light sensor though, when I first got the D620, I had to check the manual to find out that it was just a light sensor.

    No, there is not webcam on the D series Latitude. Some people do get confused with the light sensor, but after reading a little, they soon find out, well it's only a light sensor. Could OP please verify whether it is an external camera, to lessen our confusion.
