Without any more information, the issue could be with driver for the web camera or the bundled software for starts web camera.

Both can be updated from the Toshiba web site...

Make sure you do not have another program trying to access the web camera at the same time - such as MS or Yahoo Messenger.

If this fails, go to Computer Management (Start then search for Computer Management) - go to the Device Manager and make sure you can see the web camera on the right side of the window. If you cannot find the web camera, look for a yellow ? and update the driver using the above link.

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.

How will i activate my built-in web cam in my laptop?


Hi,

As I have suggested for others, if you are using a VAIO computer, it is very easy to access the Camera application. The camera will get activated once you turn ON the computer. To access the camera, you can use the Arc Soft Web Companion Software. Click the Start button and search for the application in the search box.

Ans issues, please get back to me.

Thanks!!!!

I receive a message, "Webcam is not connected."


This is happening because your web cam is not getting properly disconnected after you finish call or you finish self testing.

Possible your skype is set on automatically login when system starts, web cam will not work on 2 different platform at a time.
