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.

1. Make sure that you are using teh camera only with a single.

3. Restart the computer and try using the camera with the webcam software.

skype can be a pain like this, you can try going into skype options and video settings and making sure your camera is choosen. if fails still try using some thing like many cams its a free webcam software with a tone of effects and so on works nice with skype yahoo or anything.

Toshiba satellite a205 webcam says locked by another application


You need to uninstall first the camera assistant software under control panel, programs and features. Once you've uninstall it, Re-install the software update that you've downloaded. It should allow you to re install it. After installaing and before you restart, go to user accounts and turn off the User Account Control.
I guarantee you that it will work this time and you wont have the error message again.

Hope this helps.

Toshiba satellite a205 webcam says 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.
