Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S7476 Notebook
I've tried re-installing drivers, I've tried finding it on the files, but the webcam won't even show up in the device manager... it's obviously there but the computer always tells me it's either not turned on or disabled.
Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours Windows XP/Vista/7/8 It might take some time being a freeware driver solution note: it will find all of your outdated drivers this is a free driver solutions
if you are have trouble with your webcam
Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp
Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7
on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you
want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.
But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.
Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
Hope this helps.

you may want to try and reinstall the driver from the manufacturers website. I had to do that with a brand new notebook as the speakers didn't work when first turned on. I'll see if I can locate a link and post again if I find it.

you need to check and make sure it's on the HCL list .....this stands for hardware compatibility list ....or the laptop should have a sticker saying it's vista ready . let me know

Is your laptop running on an Intel processor, if Yes go to www.intel.com to get the drivers for your laptop.

Looks like you are missing the DVD decoder. If you are using Windows lower than Vista Home Basic (Including) like Windows XP, they do not have the DVD decoder installed natively. Download a decoder and install it. Better still get a Good DVD player like Win DVD Player. You can also try this. Install a trial version of a DVD player. Even after the trial period expires probably your DVD will still work since the decoder is now there. Not checked but it might. In any case, if you like the player you can make it fully licensed on-line.

I think the problem is that the A300 is a discontinued model and if I am not mistaken there is probably no windows7 drivers for the camera istalled on that model, perhaps using an extrnal cam is another solution. good luck
