Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S6287 Notebook PC
This could be a problem with the driver, unistalling and reinstalling the driver could probably resolve the issue. But if this doesn't help, there's an existing issue with microsoft wherein the webcam stops working or simply doesn't work after a while. They released a hotfix on their website that you might want to try to download and patch your windows with. The problem description might not be the exact same error that you are getting but it's worth a try. I've tried this patch on a number of issues that isn't included on the description. This is also a bit safer than downloading other patches from unknown third-party websites since it is coming from microsoft themselves. Just click on the hyperlink below or copy and paste it on your address bar if it is not available.

I think the problem is the driver of your webcam. maybe there's already an update on it that you missed to intall. Try to uninstall it and reinstall and seek for an update.

Tips for a great answer:
You have to open the webcam software to activate or start
the webcam. There is no button to push or switch to turn on. The
webcam software is somewhere in the program list. Click Start/Programs then
search for any reference to webcam or camera. Sometimes the webcam might
be inside one of the manufacturers folders in the program list so search the
folders for it. Some manufacturers have something like Entertainment
Experience that will open and show all the entertainment devices such as the
dvd drive, webcam, media player, etc. if you see it click it to launch it
then click on the webcam or camera icon.
Try using ManyCam
can always download Manycam and install it. Go to www.google.com and in
the search box type: "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes).
Click on the link to go to the site. When the site opens look down on the
left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type
"Manycam" (without the quotes) in the white search area then hit the
search mirror. When it brings back your results look for the one that
says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it and install it. Make sure
you remove the check box on any junky programs it would like to install. You
only want to install ManyCam, no additions whatsoever during the install.
ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use, and you will always know where your
webcam software is.
