Close any applications that could be using your Webcam other than the one you want to use it.
Good luck.

My crystal eye progam just stopped working and now i can't use my webcam.


you can still use your webcam, just not with crystal eye. try downloading another webcam viewing program, or even try using programs like skype to see if it is enabled. if it is not, try re-installing drivers for the webcam.

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

Toshiba satellite a205 webcam says locked by another application


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

Toshiba A-200 10W webcam 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.
