You didnt mention the brand and the model number of the computer.. This issue is related with driver, reinstalling the webcam driver will fix this issue.. But before uninstalling the current driver, u have to make sure that u are having the driver setup file.. If u dont have the webcam driver then u can go to the vendor website and download the driver
Or else if u have the recovery software then we can try installing the webcam driver from recovery partition
To uninstall a driver Click START >CONTROL PANEL>DEVICE MANAGER> right click on the webcam driver and click on uninstall
If u need any clarification, post or add comment... Happy to Help You Varghese Joseph Tech support engg Acer

When i try to start the webcam application a message pops up saying that the webcam initialization failed. please check your camera device and restart application or computer


Hi, Did you try restarting your computer? It may be that something is blocking the application such as firewall or anti-virus. etc... If you are computer savy look in to firewall settings. Then restart and try webcam again. Good luck.

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

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
