Skype is very picky about webcam drivers -you will have to go to the Toshiba support website to download the latest driver.

Webcam software can remained hooked up to a previous program even if you exit that program correctly. Prior to launching Skype re-boot the webcam software by restarting your computer or disabling / enabling your webcam in The Device Manager.
Expand the 'imaging' folder and right click on the text of your webcam to access the menu

My Chicony USB 2.0 camera on my toshiba vista home premium, intel celeron inside, doesn't work normally. you can use it on Skype hotmail and Facebook but u can take pictures with it normally. Ther


Suggest you go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. Scroll down through the installed programs to see what the camera app is actually called, then search for that name in the "Search" box that pops up after you click on the Start menu (before you click All Programs).

Or try just typing Chicony in the search box.

Windows Vista has compatibility issues with many webcams because the ACPI is different; need to know the make/model of your webcam.
