    Default my DELL Vostro 1500 integrated webcam doesn't work...

    ... any more!
    I recently bought a DELL Vostro 1500 with Windows Vista Home Premium preinstalled and the webcam worked fine.
    Yesterday I reinstalled Windows VIsta using the resouce CDs provided by DELL and I cannot find the way to reinstall the Creative Labs Laptop Integrated Webcam driver.
    I tried with both the R155105.EXE included in the resource CD and the R160323.EXE downloaded from the DELL support website. The first returns a generic error, the second does not have any effect... the webcam is not detected.
    I tried to install drivers both before installing webcam software, and after installing it but without success.
    Can anyone help me to solve this problem?

    maybe I have to install something else before installing webcam drivers?
    I've found on the internet some people having the same problem

    I'm havin the same problem too on my 1520... I too tried the driver on my resourced dvd, the one from DELL site and also from Windows Update.... The first two are Creative Drivers and so Webcam Manager opens up and the Camera LED also comes up but no picture on screen but with the Windows Update Driver the application says that no drivers are found for the webcam.... So did anyone who did a reinstall face similar problems ?
