Welcome to Fixya

Check the camera if you can see it under the device manager. Go to control panel ans click system. Go to device manager and look for your camera under imaging device. If camera is not present there. Try to press and hold the Fn key then tap Esc key. This will toggle the camera off/on. Your camera should be present in the device manager afte doing this.

How do I use the integrated web cam on my Toshiba Satellite laptop?


There are several ways you can use the camera on your toshiba laptop.
1.) Use a program such as Skype or Windows Messenger; these programs will only use your web camera when you video chat with someone else over the internet.
2.) Alternatively, most Toshiba laptops come with a built in program that you can use to activate the web camera, and you may even be able to record videos and take pictures. This program is usually found in a toolbar on the side of your screen. To use it, move your mouse cursor to the left side of your screen, and something should pop out. The camera can be activated from there.
3.) If this does not work, clicking on the start button (the circular windows logo found in the bottom left corner of the screen) and typing in camera should bring up a program called 'camera assistant.' Clicking on this should also start up the camera software.

Built In Webcam


Your camera is automatically enabled at windows startup and get reserved by windows driver itself. That is the reason you can't use your webcam. Try to disable this program from running the startup with windows. You may do this from: Start > All programs > Startup right click the particular program that captures camera, and disable it (delete this). This should solve your problem. Otherwise please let us know.
