I just loaded all drivers for Dell laptop to where I have no exclamations or checkmarks in devmgmt.msc.  How do I check the video camera to make sure it works.

you don't say which OS but under windows there are several options:-

windows 8 has a camera app - type Camera on the Metro interface

dell usually supply their own apps to use the webcam

Download Skype and during setup it will use the camera to try and generate a profile pic

Download any open source camera app

If you only installed the drivers for your devices, the chances are there is no real application installed to use the camera. regmigrant did make some good suggestions of where to get software. Or check the Dell website using your service tag to find applications designed for your camera. Go to support.dell.com and type in your service tag.
