This was a common problem on this range of laptops. It generally means the webcam or the webcam cable is faulty and needs to be replaced. The only way to tell which is faulty is to try one, and in rare cases both may be faulty. Before you try replacing the webcam you could try updating the driver, to do this you need to goto the manufacturers website, find their support section and there should be a list of drivers for your specific machine. I have a list of links to most manufacturers drivers on my website. If the driver update fails then look on ebay for a webcam and cable for your laptop. Installing can be tricky as you need to remove your LCD bezel and laptop top cover as the webcam connects to the system board. Hope this helps,

I have a Toshiba Satellite A305D-S6848 For a


I. Reinstall the driver:
Right click on My Computer (XP)/Computer (Vista) icon on the Desktop, click on Properties, the on Devices, then in the devices list look for your camera (you might have to open the branches to see it). You may find it under a branch named ‘Image Processing Devices’ or something similar (I don’t know the exact wording, because my system is not English).
Select your camera entry and then double click on it. Under the Driver tab, select Update driver and choose Reinstall Driver and then the second option ‘Look for Device Software in the Computer”.

II. If that doesn't solve your problem, download and install the most update driver from TOSHIBA support pages:
  1. Start here: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sevenzip/7z465.exe
  2. Click on 'Download'
  3. Select your product Category (Laptops), Family (Satellite) and Model (A305D-S6848) and press GO
  4. Refine your search by selecting your computer system OS and by selecting 'Multimedia' in the Category list box.
  5. Download the camera utility.
  6. Install it

Cannot use webcam that came with my Toshiba L305


Howdy

you should mention the model name of your laptop to find the drivers. For example if you are using a Lenovo notebook 3000 N100, in the google.com you can type Lenovo support and downloads and you will get a site where you can enter your model name and number, operating system you are using and so on and download the drivers freely for your system.

Anyway you can go to device manager and select the webcam; right click on it and select disable option to disable it and stop getting warning messages. You can enable it anytime you want when you get the drivers for it.

Thanks & regards,
