One thing common you can try, is have device manager open, and move your screen slowly back and forth. Does device manager pick up the camera drivers while you are doing this?

The webcam may be shot.

Yawcam is an extremely popular free application for webcams. Download and install it on this computer and see if it detects the webcam at all.

When you did the reinstall, did you reinstall all the required drivers for the computer?
One major one is the one found HERE which is the chipset driver for your computer.

You can also find the other drivers HERE .

Typically main drivers for a computer are these (and are usually done in this order):

System Software (usually only unique to DELL)
Chipset
Video
Sound
LAN (be sure you have anti-virus installed first)
Any other drivers at this point.

Do you have a category in Device Manager called "Other Devices"? If not, its safe to say they did.

If you do have something listed there, what is it?
