First of all, is this webcam installed inside your monitor or an external one?
Internal webcam: go to the manufacturer's website for your laptop and download the driver for your webcam
External webcam: download the driver that came with the cd, or go to the manufacturer's website for an updated driver.

Why do not may toshiba webcam work proprly


How can fix my webcam TOSHIBA FORUMS
How can I fix my webcam? Question When I try to use my webcam, it doesn't work properly. How can I fix it?
Answer Skip this and contact a professional
If you'd like to skip this guide and contact a professional, CLICK HERE.
When you attempt to use your camera, you might see an error such as "Connect a camera" or "Web camera initialization failed," or the camera might simply not work correctly.
There are a few easy steps to troubleshooting and fixing a malfunctioning webcam. Each step below might fix the problem. After each step, test the webcam. If it works, stop troubleshooting. If you don't want to go through each troubleshooting step, you can skip to the "System Recovery" section.
Check Device Manager
Open Device Manager. (In Windows 8, hold the Windows key and press the 'x' key to open a menu in the lower-left. Select "Device Manager" from this menu. In Windows 7, search for it in the Start Menu's search field.) There should be an entry titled "Imaging devices" that can be expanded. The webcam should be listed under Imaging devices. If it's listed, continue to the next troubleshooting section. If it isn't there, try slowly closing the laptop while continuing to watch the Device Manager. If it suddenly appears, it indicates a hardware failure and a repair would be needed. If it never appears, continue to the next section.
Reinstall Software
Right-click the camera in the Device Manager and select "Uninstall," then restart your computer. The computer should reinstall its camera driver.
If that doesn't work, check the Toshiba support site for an updated camera driver. For instructions on how to find your downloads from Toshiba, please see the following Knowledge Base article.
Finding downloads and support documents at support.toshiba.com
Look under the "Camera" category, and download the appropriate one for your version of Windows. Some laptops may not have one listed. This is fine, as many models don't use a specific camera driver, allowing Windows to provide the driver.
Check the UEFI or BIOS Settings

Some computers have the option of disabling the webcam in the UEFI or BIOS settings. Ensure that's it's enabled by performing the following steps. Note that some computers might not have this setting.
  1. Turn your computer off. If your computer uses Windows 8, hold SHIFT while seleting "Shut down" to perform a complete shut down.
  2. Start the computer.
  3. Begin tapping F2 when the TOSHIBA splash screen appears to enter the UEFI or BIOS settings. On some models, you might need to hold F2 while booting. If you have trouble entering the UEFI settings, please see the article titled How To: Enter the system BIOS or UEFI in Windows 8
  4. Select Advanced
  5. Select System Configuration
  6. Select Web Camera.
  7. Ensure it's set to Enabled.
  8. Save and exit.
System Restore
Try using the System Restore utility to restore the computer to a working state. Select the most recent restore point from before the issue arose.
How To: Understanding System Restore, Refresh, Reset, and, Recovery options in Windows 8 + Video
How To: Perform a system restore in Windows 7
Uninstall Other Webcam Applications
Uninstall any other applications that use the webcam besides the pre-installed Toshiba camera application. For example, uninstall Skype if it's installed. This is just a temporary troubleshooting procedure. If uninstalling the other applications doesn't fix the problem, reinstall them. If it does fix the problem, try reinstalling them again to check if the webcam continues to work. If it stops working again, the issue is that specific third-party application.
Contact a professional or perform a system reset

Lastly, you might want to return your computer to factory default conditions. This is sometimes called a system reset or a system recovery. Note that this will remove all of your software and data that you added including applications, documents, photos, etc.
How that helps good luck.

Broken digital signature for logitech C110 webcam . how do i fix it ?


With the rise of viruses, adware and spyware in computer systems Microsoft has taken an extra step to improve security in applications. Windows Vista requires a valid digital signature to install programs, but it can be a bother to the advanced computer user. This article will explain how to run downloaded applications that don't have a valid digital signature.

Open "Internet Explorer" and bring up the "Internet Explorer Menu Toolbar" by holding down the "ALT" key. Navigate to the "Tools" menu by pressing "T" on your keyboard or clicking on "Tools." Select "Internet Options" and navigate to the "Advanced" tab. Scroll down and check off "Allow software to run or install even if the signature is invalid." This will allow any downloaded program to run even if there is no valid digital signature.

How to troubleshoot Webcams in Windows Vista?

If you are having difficulty getting the webcam to work, review the tips about using a webcam, and then follow the troubleshooting actions in this article.
Tips:
  • Do not enter standby and then wake the system immediately, before the power light turns yellow. If so, the webcam may not function correctly until the computer is restarted. To avoid this issue, allow the system to fully enter standby before waking up the system.
  • If you installed the webcam separately (it did not come with your Vista PC), make sure the webcam drivers and software are compatible with Windows Vista.
  • If you are using an external webcam, make sure you install any webcam software from the CD before you plug the webcam to your computer. Without the software, the webcam may not be recognized by your computer and this can cause error messages.
  • If the display is blank, the camera may have timed out. Turn the camera on again.
  • If the camera does not display Connected to computer, disconnect and then reconnect your camera.
  • Make sure the camera is set to Digital Camera in USB Configuration when trying to download images through some software.
  • Test your webcam in a different application to confirm if the issue is specific to that application. If the webcam functions properly in a different application, then contact the manufacturer of the video software for the latest drivers and for specific troubleshooting instructions.
  • If you have an external webcam, test it on another computer. If it functions properly on a different computer that has the same operating system, then you may need to install hardware drivers for your computer to work with the webcam.
  • If an external webcam fails to work on several computers, your webcam may be defective. Contact the webcam manufacturer for specific diagnostic information and troubleshooting instructions.
  • Your webcam may not work properly across some network firewalls. If you have trouble viewing or sending video to someone on another LAN or outside the network firewall, refer to the support information for the firewall or contact a network administrator for assistance.
  • Dial-up Internet connections often lack the data transfer capacity to handle both video and voice simultaneously. A broadband Internet connection is highly recommended for video messaging. Performance varies with dial-up connections.
  • For the best webcam experience, close all other applications and background tasks, and limit your Internet browsing or streaming to preserve bandwidth.

Step 1: Close all software before starting a new webcam session
Sometimes after you finish using the webcam in a software program, the program may not properly release the webcam for other activities in other applications, or even the same application. Sometimes you cannot use the webcam because it is being accessed by another program by default. So, if you are having a problem with your webcam, close the program you are using it in and then restart the same program or open a different program.
Step 2: Restart your PC
Sometimes, closing the software application that was using the webcam is not enough. Some webcam software cannot close the webcam for other applications to use later. When this happens, the webcam cannot be used by any other application until the computer is restarted.
Step 3: Select the webcam in your video viewing software list
Make sure USB 2.0 Camera or your Webcam is selected as the video input source in the software you are trying to use. The various software programs that can use the webcam use different terms for describing a video source and the option to select it can vary. Usually, camera, webcam, or video settings can be found in the preferences or properties pages for the software that uses the webcam.
If your PC includes a TV tuner, often the TV tuner is the default video input device. So, for example, if you are using Windows Live Messenger to have a video chat with your webcam, you need to select the your Webcam as the active input device because the TV tuner is the active video input device by default.
Example: Select webcam in Windows Live Messenger
To select the webcam as the default video input device in Windows Live Messenger:
1. Open Windows Live Messenger.
2. Click the arrow icon on the Windows Live Messenger toolbar.
3. Select Tools and then Audio and Video Setup .
4. Click Next, Next, and then Next again.
5. In the "Select a Webcam you would like to use" dropdown list, select the name that corresponds to the webcam that is installed on your PC (such as USB 2.0 Camera)
6. Click Finish.

Step 4: Download the latest drivers and updates for your webcam and your video software
Some webcams may not be recognized by some software programs unless you have the most recent drivers and updates for your webcam hardware and webcam video software. Also, if the video footage from your webcam is in a format not supported by your video software, you may need a third-party plug-in or utility to view or convert the video footage to a format supported by your webcam video software.
  • If you installed the webcam separately, go to the webcam manufacturer's website and download the latest drivers, updates, plug-ins, or conversion utilities for any webcam video software. Make sure the webcam drivers and software are compatible with Windows Vista!
  • If you are having problems getting the webcam to be recognized by video playing or editing software, go the software manufacturer web site to find and install any updates or patches.
  • Check Windows Update for any Vista-related drivers that may affect your webcam and your video software. Click the Start button, All Programs , and then Windows Update
Step 5: Make sure you have the correct Vista drivers installed
If you are having problems hearing sound or using your webcam, try the following steps.
Make sure you have installed the correct Vista drivers and not the generic sound driver in Windows. If you have installed the generic sound driver, uninstall the webcam video software and download and install this Vista sound driver, and then reinstall your webcam video software.
To update Windows Vista drivers:
  • Click the Start button, All Programs , and then click Windows Update . If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  • Click Check for updates .
  • To see if updated drivers are available, click View available updates . Windows Update will list any updated drivers that are available for devices installed in your computer.
  • If updates are available, click the driver that you want to install, and then click Install . Follow any onscreen instructions to finish installing the available drivers.
You may need to set up the sound settings in your instant messaging program or any other video webcam software you are using with your webcam. Refer to the Help information in your webcam software.

Outlook 2007 not product key provide me


Hello there,

We do not provide product keys for Microsoft Outlook 2007 or any other Microsoft license keys. Please try to understand that you need to purchase your own genuine license key to use the application. Using pirated keys is illegal and would take you to software piracy as Microsoft easily detects IP addresses doing it. If you want to use Outlook, you can use "Outlook Express" which is a built in application on your computer upon installing windows; besides, its FREE.
