Chicony USB 2.0 Camera: NEED HELP!!!!!

I am using a Toshiba Satellite A215-S4747. It has a built in webcam (Chicony USB 2.0 camera) and since I upgraded to vista ultimate it has not worked. I tried what you said to do Control Panel -> System and Maintenance ->Device Manager, and when I got to the folder was under +Other devices and was called Unknown device. When I tried to upgrade it (via internet and browsing) the Computer said "Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device" and explains that Chicony USB 2.0 Camera cannot be installed. If you can help, email me at ezralesser@comcast.net.

Forget the "anytime upgrade"; at least untill you've checked if compatible. Toshiba does not support this upgrade for my A215-S4807, and it's been a month trying to get every thing working right again. Oh do I miss XP....

I've found the camera driver for your notebook, but it is suitable to Windows 7 only. It's here, anyway. Hope it works for you.

Follow these steps to re-install the driver for the webcam. You will need to be logged in as an Administrator or have an Administrator password ready.1. Click the Windows Start button.
2. Click Control Panel, System and Maintenance and then Device Manager.
3. Right-click on Chicony USB 2.0 Camera and select Update Driver Software. A yellow exclamation point indicates that the camera is recognized by Windows but is not working properly, probably because of problem with the device driver
4. Select Browse my computer for the driver software.
5. Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
6. Select USB Video Device from the list, and click Next.
7. If the message “Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device” appears, click Close.
8. Restart Windows.
The webcam should now work properly

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.
