Bought this laptop 3 weeks ago.Formatted it and put linux on.Then decided to put the origional Vista OS back on.Everything ok except there are no drivers for the webcam. Dell want me to return the laptop to them so they can reinstall on a small second partition. Cost 190 pounds. Does anyone know of alternative drivers,or where is it possible to get the drivers.

Have a look here click here

Did you create a recovery disc when you first got the laptop?

THERE IS A RECOVERY DISK BUT IT DOES NOT HAVE THE WEBCAM DRIVERS/SOFTWARE.DELL ONLY PROVIDE A PATCH WHICH IS OF NO USE.Sorry no one can help.

No need to shout! Your problem lies in that formatting you probably over wrote the recovery partition which normally brings the system back to factory condition. If you didn't make a back up of this then you could well be stuck. Dell now seem to want to recreate this partition and unsurprisingly will charge.

Not shouting really just did not realise I had left the caps lock on.Yes Dell require that I send the Laptop back to them at a cost of 25 pounds each way. Which adds another 50 pounds. All for a webcam driver.Definitely will not buy Dell again.
The internet is full of people like me searching for Dell webcam drivers.Why dont Dell just put them on their download page.
Thanks for trying to help.

Thanks pc840 I have been there dozens of times .DELL just will not let you have the drivers and software without paying for them. Which means returning the laptop to them which incurs another £50
