Default Web Cam problem - 11-28-2009, 10:37 PM

My mini has a built in web cam that I use to chat with my friends that have moved away. It has worked perfectly up to and beyond my expectations until now.

While I opened via "my computer" to look at how the other person sees it well in full screen (as opposed to usually just opening it on AIM or PalTalk only), apparently I did something to mess up the settings. My cam is much darker and sorta looks like a shadowed version of myself when turned on, on any application.

Does anyone know how to change the settings to fix it back to the way it was?

I appreciate any help anyone can give me on this subject.

Each application that uses the webcam has its own settings it applies, as far as I know. I suppose you could install the Dell Webcam Central application and see if its settings do anything for you.
