It is not the problem of your laptop but all over the world people using windows vista are facing this problem. Windows vista has a problem with the installation of new hardware many a times it doesnot recognise harware connected to it. if also you have got the latest updated driver from the net. The result is same so I can suggest for a change in OS and if possible shift to Windows XP Professional. Or you can contact you laptop manufacuring vendor or microsoft itself.

How to turn on my built in ebcam


Many Toshiba laptops, including Satellite, Portege and Qosmio models, feature built-in Chicony-brand webcams. The Chicony webcam can be problematic, especially when running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista. Microsoft has released an update that will correct problems with starting the webcam after terminating "Sleep" mode. Users may also have to install the appropriate driver or webcam software to correct webcam problems.
Dark or Black Webcam Image Problems b> Toshiba laptop owners may have problems with the webcam displaying as dark or completely black a few seconds after the initial image appears or immediately after engaging the webcam. Users should ensure that the webcam indicator light is engaged. If not, users should run the "Camera Assistant Software" to turn on the webcam. Low light can cause the webcam to power off and to display a dark image. Users can tweak the light and contrast by manually increasing the lighting in the room or by turning on "Night Mode." If these steps do not correct the dark image problem, users may have to reset the webcam itself, reinstall the "Camera Assistant" software. b> Webcam Problems After Terminating Sleep Mode b> Toshiba laptop owners with Windows Vista (any 32-bit edition) installed and the Chicony webcam may have problems starting the webcam after restoring the laptop from "Sleep" mode. "Sleep" mode powers down a number of hardware components in the laptop. The webcam is capable of entering a non-operating system-induced sleep mode when it is not used for an extended period of time. After the user engages Windows "Sleep" mode and wakes the laptop, the webcam may give error messages such as "Locked by another application." This webcam problem can be corrected by installing a Windows Hotfix, which is also included in Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1). Webcam Problems After Upgrading Windows Vista
Toshiba Satellite laptop owners may opt to use the Microsoft Anytime Upgrade to upgrade to Vista Ultimate. After doing so, the Chicony webcam may stop working and report a "Please turn on the camera" error message. Users can correct this problem by reinstalling the Chicony driver. b> Webcam Problems on Linux b> Linux users who own Toshiba laptops with the Chicony webcam should install the Linux UVC Driver to make the webcam functional. The webcam may not work without this driver. b> Grainy or Blurry Webcam Image b> The Chicony webcam can produce grainy or blurry images if the user does not remove the protective film that covers the external webcam interface.
http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html 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 software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html 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 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). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer Hope this helps

Did not have Webcam driver for Compaq C773TU model for Vista


You didnt say whether this worked before or if you are doing a new OS install but the web camera driver is part of the vista operating system. See below info from HP....

Microsoft provides an automated Windows update function that examines your computer and installs the appropriate drivers and programs for Service Pack 2. One of the updated drivers, Microsoft USB Video driver , is required for proper operation of the webcam on your HP or Compaq notebook PC.
If you have updated to SP2 but the webcam is not working, see HP Notebook PCs - Webcam Does Not Work with Vista or After Upgrading to Vista , for detailed instructions on manually installing the latest webcam driver (usbvideo.sys) from Microsoft.
