Can not start webcam

I have a Toshiba Satellite P205D and as I try to initiate the web cam
( Chicony usb 2.0 camera) for the first time, a massage comes up telling me the camera is locked by another application. I restarted the computer, but still the same. Any ideas of how to find what application is using the camera and how to unlock it ?

My toshiba web cam is not working,


Windows Vista has compatibility issues with many webcams because the ACPI is different; need to know the make/model of your webcam.

I am assuming you have a Chicony USB 2.0 Webcam made by Toshiba...

here are the steps that you need to do.. First turn off User Account Control (UAC),. That is under control panel. Then download camera assistant software and save it in your desktop desktop. You can get it at support.toshiba.com for US model or toshiba.ca/support for canadian model. Make sure you properly save it on your desktop. Then uninstall camera assistamt software from the add remove programs. Re start your notebook. Then install the camera assistant software. Re start again your notebook. Launch camera assistant software. It will work this time.

you can launch the webcam using yahoo messenger,msn messnger,AOL messenger,skype, etc.. in order for other people to see you, you and the other person should be logged in to ex. yahoo messnger or aol messneger..in that way you will have an option on your end to start your webcam and the other party needs to click something like "view webcam" beside your username..

Toshiba satellite a205 webcam says locked by another application


I don't know what exactly fixed the problem but I managed to fix it. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A215 by the way.

Here's what I did
Control Panel >> System Maintenance >> Device Manager

Go to Imaging Devices and right-click "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera" and choose "Update Driver Software"

First I clicked on "Search automatically for updated driver software" but everything was already up to date. So then I went to "Browse my Computer for Driver Software" and then to "Let Me Pick from a List". I updated the USB Video Device and rebooted but that only made it worse I think. Then I tried updating one of the "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera"'s and that did the trick. Yey. So now my webcam works.
