    Hey guys,

    My M4800's webcam is screwed up and I have no idea why.

    When I switch on Dell's webcam central, I can see it's perfectly normal and such. But after some time, I will hear a "usb-disconnect" sound.. and my webcam stops working.

    Is there a way to fix this?

    And when I close the webcam central and re-launch it, same thing - it shows my live webcam and it's working... then moments later, it freezes with the "usb-disconnect" sound.

    I haven't run into this issue, but I don't really ever use the webcam. I fired it up once and it worked fine, although the sensor quality left a lot to be desired.

    Bit late to the party here, but I have been having the same issues. I'll let you know if I find any solutions....the webcam works fine 90% of the time, but this issue has been occurring to me more frequently lately.
