Is it possible to fix my laptop webcam?

So I have been having trouble with my gateway M-1624 laptop's built in web cam. It's originally a chicony usb 2.0 webcam with a 1.3 megapixel and maximum resolution of 640x480. So here is the problem my webcam's lighting is fine when it is in night mode but the frame rate is low. the gateway camera assistant claims that it's running at 30fps no matter what resolution it is set at but it seems like it's running at 1.5fps. Also when night mode is deselected the camera runs at a descent frame rate but its too dark I cannot see anything but a light in the background.

I don't know what the deal is with gateway's performance monitor, but the low frame rate is normal for web cams (and digital cameras in general) in low light situations. I would recommend just getting a cheapy desk lamp and forget about the night mode if possible.

My toshiba web cam is not working,


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

I am assuming you have a Chicony USB 2.0 Webcam made by Toshiba...

TECHNICAL PROBLEM WITH MY WEBCAM.


You've got graphic rendering problem bcos, the webcam drivers installed in your laptop don't work correctly. ie) the driver installed forces your webcam to take a snapshot at a resolution that is not supported by the webcam hardware...So, tell me ur laptop model number and I'll let u know abt the drivers....
