Do you remember what was the last thing you did, or that happened to the system that lead to the problem?

Only difference is that I connected to the wireless network. Before that, I was connected through the ethernet connection.

Can you go into your Dell's BIOS, at start-up (usually by pressing F2 a few times until it comes up immediately upon system startup), and ensure that your webcam is enabled?

Also, if this does not work, please take a look at this thread:
