You need to reinstall the driver as Administrator, and set it for Compatability Mode for XP SP2, and see how that goes.

Why do not may toshiba webcam work proprly


How can fix my webcam TOSHIBA FORUMS
How can I fix my webcam? Question When I try to use my webcam, it doesn't work properly. How can I fix it?
Answer Skip this and contact a professional
If you'd like to skip this guide and contact a professional, CLICK HERE.
When you attempt to use your camera, you might see an error such as "Connect a camera" or "Web camera initialization failed," or the camera might simply not work correctly.
There are a few easy steps to troubleshooting and fixing a malfunctioning webcam. Each step below might fix the problem. After each step, test the webcam. If it works, stop troubleshooting. If you don't want to go through each troubleshooting step, you can skip to the "System Recovery" section.
Check Device Manager
Open Device Manager. (In Windows 8, hold the Windows key and press the 'x' key to open a menu in the lower-left. Select "Device Manager" from this menu. In Windows 7, search for it in the Start Menu's search field.) There should be an entry titled "Imaging devices" that can be expanded. The webcam should be listed under Imaging devices. If it's listed, continue to the next troubleshooting section. If it isn't there, try slowly closing the laptop while continuing to watch the Device Manager. If it suddenly appears, it indicates a hardware failure and a repair would be needed. If it never appears, continue to the next section.
Reinstall Software
Right-click the camera in the Device Manager and select "Uninstall," then restart your computer. The computer should reinstall its camera driver.
If that doesn't work, check the Toshiba support site for an updated camera driver. For instructions on how to find your downloads from Toshiba, please see the following Knowledge Base article.
Finding downloads and support documents at support.toshiba.com
Look under the "Camera" category, and download the appropriate one for your version of Windows. Some laptops may not have one listed. This is fine, as many models don't use a specific camera driver, allowing Windows to provide the driver.
Check the UEFI or BIOS Settings

Some computers have the option of disabling the webcam in the UEFI or BIOS settings. Ensure that's it's enabled by performing the following steps. Note that some computers might not have this setting.
  1. Turn your computer off. If your computer uses Windows 8, hold SHIFT while seleting "Shut down" to perform a complete shut down.
  2. Start the computer.
  3. Begin tapping F2 when the TOSHIBA splash screen appears to enter the UEFI or BIOS settings. On some models, you might need to hold F2 while booting. If you have trouble entering the UEFI settings, please see the article titled How To: Enter the system BIOS or UEFI in Windows 8
  4. Select Advanced
  5. Select System Configuration
  6. Select Web Camera.
  7. Ensure it's set to Enabled.
  8. Save and exit.
System Restore
Try using the System Restore utility to restore the computer to a working state. Select the most recent restore point from before the issue arose.
How To: Understanding System Restore, Refresh, Reset, and, Recovery options in Windows 8 + Video
How To: Perform a system restore in Windows 7
Uninstall Other Webcam Applications
Uninstall any other applications that use the webcam besides the pre-installed Toshiba camera application. For example, uninstall Skype if it's installed. This is just a temporary troubleshooting procedure. If uninstalling the other applications doesn't fix the problem, reinstall them. If it does fix the problem, try reinstalling them again to check if the webcam continues to work. If it stops working again, the issue is that specific third-party application.
Contact a professional or perform a system reset

Lastly, you might want to return your computer to factory default conditions. This is sometimes called a system reset or a system recovery. Note that this will remove all of your software and data that you added including applications, documents, photos, etc.
How that helps good luck.

Webcam no working


1. Check if the webcam driver is installed. go to Device Manager, if your computr have Vista/7 you can type "Device Manager" in the start search box in the start menu and click on Device Manager in the results list at the top. If you have XP, right click on the "My Computer" icon then Properties, from the System Properties windows go to the "Hardware" tab then from there click on the Device Manager button.

2. Once Device Manager is open, look for "Imaging Devices" click on the small + sign to expand the view and check if your webcam is listed there, if it doesn't come up or if it does and have a red "X" on it, we will need to reinstall the driver to fix it.

3. Most HP/Compaq notebook computers have a "Recovery" partition. We can reinstall all bundled programs and drivers from there. For Vista/7, type "Recovery Manager" in the search box, for XP look for the Recovery Manager in the Programs Menu.

4. When the Recovery Manager program loads, select "Hardware/Driver Reinstallation". A list of all drivers will be listed, look for the webcam driver. Follow the on screen instructions for installation.

5. When installation finishes, the computer might restart automatically or if it doesn't restart the computer.

6. Test the webcam.


Hope this help.

Problem with my eye 312 camera


Assuming you are using Windows, did you check the Device Manager to see if the webcam device is working properly and has the right drivers installed?
Apart from that, try different programs, as not all programs support all devices. MSN and Yahoo messenger are good examples of that problem.
Some more tips on fixing webcam problems could also help.

For some reason, moving all of your photos into a new folder leaving the old one empty can fix the orbicam, heavens knows why. if that doesn't work, try reinstalling the webcam sofware as follows: (actually, first go to control panel, then check out device manager to see if you have any nasty big checks. If imaging devices has a big check, try reinstalling the driver there. If that doesn't fixya, click on Start, thten Acer Empowering Technology, then Acer E-Recovery, and choose Restore Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab. It will extract; then click Install for Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - Camera or CCD - on the right side of the screen for your model which you saw in device manager.
