Question about Computers & Internet
When I try to setup or use the built in camera in Skype or Yahoo I get a message that the camera is occupied by another application, I get the same message when I try to use the Toshiba webcam application. I looked thoroughly over the web and found no useful solutions. I reinstalled webcam driver, I uninstalled all instant messaging software even I uninstalled the pre-installed windows life bundle provided with the original OS (Windows 7 home premium). the funny thing is that I tried to use the web-cam log in feature by Toshiba (which enables to login to windows after configuring the face image), and camera turned on and I was able to complete the configuration (which means that the hardware is OK, and something wrong with the software on the PC). does anyone have any clues?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If you click Start, Right click My Computer (this may also be on your desktop), click properties, Click the Hardware tab (at the top), click Device Manager, then scroll down to your camera, you can double click it and see if it is disabled. It will also tell you if it thinks the device is working properly on the General tab.
I hope that helps, please let me know if you have further questions. Thanks

1. The drivers for this Web camera may not be developed for Windows 7 64 bit by the manufacturer.
You will either have to purchase a new camera to be compatible with Windows 7 or Vista 64.
This is also true for your SD card reader.
