I'm assuming you have the Chicony version of this webcam, since it is a Toshiba. If you can later post the model number of the laptop you are using and what OS is has, that would be helpful.

Here are three things you can try.

1. Go to Start, and type "msconfig" in the search box, and hit enter. Click on the "Startup" tab, and look in the list of things that start up when your computer does. If you see anything to do with "Chicony" or "Toshiba", uncheck them. Restart, and see if Yahoo can access the camera.

2. Go into "Add/Remove Programs" in the Control Panel. Look for Toshiba's Chicony software, and hit 'Change' (Not uninstall!). See if the software can be reset.

3. Go to Toshiba's website, and search for your model laptop. In the support section for driver downloads, check to see if there is an updated version of the software for the camera, or an updated version of a driver for the camera itself. If so, download and install.

Hope one of these three works. If not, get back to me with the model number and I'll see what I can do.

How do I do a video webchat

Step 1:
Which messenger service ???? skype ,yahoo ,msn , google....
Use MSN for Video Chat b> Configure your webcam (see Below for help) if your computer does not have a built-in one. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/windowsmessenger/ballew_video.mspx Launch MSN Messenger. Use your email address and password to sign in. Click on "Actions." Point to "Audio/Video" and select the "Start a video conversation" option. Navigate to your contact list. Highlight the username of the contact with whom you wish to video chat and click "OK." An invitation to begin video chat will be sent to the contact. Once the contact accepts the invitation, you will receive a confirmation message. Once the contact accepts your invitation, Messenger will automatically turn on your webcam and the contact will be able to see you. Chat with the contact by typing text into the text field and clicking "Send." Click on the webcam icon to end the conversation.
Do Video Chat With Yahoo Messenger b> Yahoo! Messenger is an instant messaging application allowing users to communicate with each other in real-time.
It is available for several platforms but only the Windows and Mac versions allow video chats.

Minimum Requirements
Users need to have a webcam and a headset or a microphone and speakers in order to video chat. It is also necessary to have a Yahoo! account. b> System Requirements for Windows Windows users need version 10 or higher of Yahoo! Messenger for Windows, Windows XP or later, a computer with at least a 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM or more in order to video chat. b> System Requirements for Mac Mac users need version 3.0 or higher of Yahoo! Messenger for Mac, Mac OS X 10.4 or later, either a G4 with a 400 MHz processor or a Mac with an Intel processor and at least 512 MB of RAM in order to video chat. b> Webcam Compatibility for Mac Many Macs for home use come preinstalled with a webcam but if yours does not, you can check its compatibility with Messenger with the BTV software program from Ben Software. b> Webcam Compatibility for PC Yahoo! provides a test page for PC users to test their webcams.

Veo stingray not working on msn

It would appear to me either your "Drivers" are not installed correctly OR MSN/AIM aint finding the Input.. Try uninstalling & reinstalling all Drivers and software... after that maybe try a "Repair" of MSN... Are you using Vista? If so then it is imperitive that ya get a Vista driver... I have had great sucess with the "Look123" driver from M$ update site. Else Vista don't ... well won't play nice with others ...
