    Thanks for your response, but Of course, Im alreday downloaded all WIN 7 drivers, and I Installed them with our any results, webcam doesnt work... I already did the workaround related with unistalling from device manager and using the generic usb video driver who comes with windows 7 but it didnt work.,,, i need something more deep.... this what you were mentioning here its actually the first step, Everything under my Win7 is installed properly based on what Device Manager is showing, There is no conflict with any device installed on the machine and DRIVERS as for windows 7.

Welcome to Fixya.

Make sure that the driver you installed is for Windows 7 32 bit. If you already installed that one then check if you have the webcam installed in the device manager. You should be able to see the webcam in the device manager under the device and images. You may try to delete the device there and restart the computer. Your computer should redetect the device upon booting up.

Just let me know if you still encounter any problems.

All the best!

    Were you able to see the webcam at the device manager? Try to press and hold Fn key Esc key. This will disable/anable your webcam.

If you don't have the motherboard, how can you? The laptop doesn't work!
You can place the hard drive in a caddy and format it with another laptop however.

If that is not what you meant, please explain.

The webcam of my laptop was disabled, how can i resolve it?


More then likely he jarred the cable loose from the camera either behind the bezel or under the keyboard on the motherboard. If the computer is not recognizing the camera or the software won't start because it cannot find the camera, that is probably why.

My toshiba satellite a355-s6925 will not boot up. It will get stuck at the login screen, if it gets that far.


This is likely to be as a result of your processor over-heating, maybe because of your environment, or because the fan is not cooling the processor properly again. Therefore my suggestion would be for you to unscrew your laptop (If you can do it by yourself), and try to clean, or better still replace your processor fan.
If you cant do it by yourself, you can easily get a technician to do it for you.
I have actually had the same case before, and after doing what I've just told you, it stopped behaving like that.
And you are also still very lucky, because after a while, if the case worsens, the system will not just get stuck, but it will power-off automatically.
Then always make sure that your laptop is in a well ventilated, cool environment and that the environment is free from dusts.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!
