Question about Toshiba Satellite A305D-S6848 Notebook
I know this is an old post, but just in case others are having webcam problems with their a305d webcam... There is a problem with many a305d satellite web cams, the cable/wires that connect the webcam to the motherboard are weak and badly routed. They usually fail due to fatigue at the hinge where it flexes/bends every time the lid is opened/closed. The first symptom usually comes in the form of random Windows USB connected/disconnected sound notifications when the lid/screen is moved. The second is a random USB device not recognized error. Finally, when the cable totally fails, you get a camera driver not loaded error. I've seen bunches of these units with this problem and usually repair it by cutting and removing the section of cable at the aforementioned bend in the hinge area, then soldering and heat shrinking the repair. I then reroute the now shorter cable behind the monitor rather than around it. I do this because it's easier and cheaper than sourcing a new cable and allows a faster turnaround time.
