Thanks.  Not found anything useful so far.  BUT I tried plugging in an
old USB webcam and Cheese found that OK.  I think this means that I have
a hardware problem, so I imagine I'm going to have to restore the
supplied system, test and then return to Dell.  Any other thoughts?

that gives me real fresh air.
