My computer continues to say webcam not found


Receiving an error message when trying to access your webcam can be frustrating, but the problem can often be resolved by doing some basic troubleshooting.



  • If you have an external webcam, check to see if it has become accidentally unplugged from your computer.
  • Perhaps another program is using your webcam. Close other programs and try accessing your webcam again.
  • If another program has crashed for some reason, it might not have released your webcam successfully. Try closing all programs and restarting your computer.
  • If you have an external webcam, it might not have installed correctly. Try reinstalling your webcam software program according to the manufacturer's instructions. For more information, go to How do I reinstall my webcam?
  • Perhaps Yahoo! Messenger is using the incorrect camera device on your computer. Try changing the camera source. For more information, go to How do I change my camera source?
  • Your webcam might not be configured correctly. Try reconfiguring your webcam according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Your camera might not be not compatible with Yahoo! Messenger you can verify this by using the webcam compatibility test. To try the webcam compatibility test, go to How can I tell if my webcam will work withYahoo! Messenger?

Using new Satallite P200-1EE, webcam is not connected message with Yahoo Messenger


I'm using a Toshiba satellite notebook A200, which I faced the same problem like you saying my built- in webcam cannot operate after I clicked on the drop down list from the windows live messenger to have a webcam conversation. Another program is running the webcam at startup. That program is called Camera Assistant Software which is the conflicting software. Therefore I closed this software and I'm able to use my webcam again in my webcam conversation in windows live messenger. I hope this information will help you.Good Luck!
