That's in the settings in the control panel. Select camera/scanners, and when you find your camera, set default as on..

How do I use the integrated web cam on my Toshiba Satellite laptop?


There are several ways you can use the camera on your toshiba laptop.
1.) Use a program such as Skype or Windows Messenger; these programs will only use your web camera when you video chat with someone else over the internet.
2.) Alternatively, most Toshiba laptops come with a built in program that you can use to activate the web camera, and you may even be able to record videos and take pictures. This program is usually found in a toolbar on the side of your screen. To use it, move your mouse cursor to the left side of your screen, and something should pop out. The camera can be activated from there.
3.) If this does not work, clicking on the start button (the circular windows logo found in the bottom left corner of the screen) and typing in camera should bring up a program called 'camera assistant.' Clicking on this should also start up the camera software.

My webcam is not recognized and I get a message that says that the camera is not turned on. I cannot find the device in my device manager in order to repair it and the driver. I need help! I can be...


You should first verify that the USB port can recognize a USB memory stick i.e. verify that the USB port hardware is working. If its is not, use Device Manager to reload the USB Host Adapter drivers.


If this is an external USB device (laptop or desktop) ...

the Device Manager will always locate the camera, if only as an Other Device or sometimes with the wrong driver in another device class. One possibility, if the host PC is a laptop, is check the Power Scheme. Set this to Always On, as this is supposed to (but not always..) stop Windows from turning off external interfaces (such as USB) to conserve power.

Check if the camera will appear in Device Manager on another PC. This will verify that the camera hardware is functional.

If this is a laptop built-in WebCam, it will usually appear in Device Manager under Imaging Devices. If it does not, I'd suspect that the camera hardware has a problem.

Let's assume that this is an external USB Camera. When the camera driver is loaded, the driver INF file is copied to a new file

C:\Windows\inf\oem.inf where is an arbitrary number.

When you plug in the camera, Windows PlugandPlay looks in C:\Windows\inf for the correct driver to assign to the device.

Windows can get confused about drivers, esspecially if you have attempted to reload the driver, or load a newer version.

If you do a search for all C:\Windows\inf\oem*.inf containing "Toshiba" or "WebCam" you should be able to locate one or more oem*.inf files that is the installed driver for your webcam.

Lets say this file is oem31.inf Delete this file and also oem31.pnf if its present.

This removes the last driver that was installed. Now, run Device Manager, and plug in the camera. If Device Manager can locate the camera (as an Other Device to start with), you should be able to reload the correct driver, either from the installed driver directory (if there is one) or from you camera CD.

Kindly run the setup/exe file in your CD before connecting your webcam to your pc.

Normal 0 Right click on My Computer and click on PROPERTIES.

Next click on the + and then on the camera, right click and then click on DISABLE.
Then click on the Red X in the upper LEFT corner.
Then get out of that and install your new camera.


Make sure to disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

Logiteck Pro webcam on Mac does not want to work


You should be able to select the Logitech webcam in the Settings of the program you are using. Try this free webcam test site. Click on the camera icon and then choose the Logitech from the drop down list. Once you are sure it is loaded and working properly, go into your service and select the Logitech. In Skype it is under Settings, Camera. In MSN click Tools, Audio & Video set up, Next. It should give you the option to choose what camera you want to use.
