From the desktop click on start then click on control panel . Once it opens , you should see an icon which resembles a camera or whatever selection is available for your web cam . Double click on your left mouse button after you highlight it and you should be able to open the program which controls the web can . From there , you can set up the device and also create a shortcut to put on your desktop so you can access it easier Next time .

HOW DO I FIND THE WEB CAM ON A TOSHIBA PSL-C8U COMPUTER??


Hi,

Built in webcams are usually located at the very top of the Toshiba laptop. The laptop will have pre-installed webcam software you can use to operate the webcam.

In Windows go to Start > Programs or All Programs and look for any software with webcam in the title. Start it and this will allow you to use the webcam. If you are using Windows 7 you can click Start and in the search box type "webcam"

How to install a logitech webcam to my laptop


Ok. Find the CD you got with the camera, plug in the camera and insert the CD, start installation. After the installation is complete, disconnect the camera and restart your laptop, plug in the camera again after restarting laptop-the device should be automatically recognized.

Well, the driver for the webcam might not be installed properly. Check the back up disc, find the driver for the webcam and install it. Then it will start recognizing the webcam, and it'll start working.

Check out the manual on your computer regarding the webcam controls
Sometimes the webcam start procedure can be found under the keyboard heading

Try the Sony Support website for drivers
