Re: webcam locked

The webcam capture utility is probably running at the same time as you are trying to use instant messaging. Is the webcam icon in the bottom right hand corner? If so right click and close. Then open messenger or whatever and run audio/ video set up.

    Toshiba satellite a205 webcam says locked by another application

    You have an application that is grabbing the webcam on bootup, so the best way is to disable this program from runnning. To do this, click Start - Run and type "msconfig" and press enter.

    Click on the Startup tab and this will bring up a list of all the things you have booting. Look for webcam manager, and remove the checkmark beside it. Click Ok and then reboot. Problem should be solverd

    Check if you download any new application that makes a conflict with your webcam? just remeber if you did download any program and this makes the problems, if you donot want to do this , just go to start, programms, accessories, system tools, and restore yout pc to the day before this problem happened and you will be fine.

    Best Regards
