Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Cannot use webcam that came with my Toshiba L305

\015 Upon boot up I receive an error message that I must close the webcam. Every time I try to use it I get the same message. \015\012\015\012''Webcam driver open fail. Please restart camera or computer.''\015\012\015\012Every forum says to go to the Device Manager and update the ''Chicony driver,'' but this does not exist on my computer. \015\012\015\012Please help. I would really like to be able to use my webcam. Thanks.\015

\015\012you should mention the model name of your laptop to find the drivers. For example if you are using a Lenovo notebook 3000 N100, in the google.com you can type Lenovo support and downloads and you will get a site where you can enter your model name and number, operating system you are using and so on and download the drivers freely for your system.

\015\012Anyway you can go to device manager and select the webcam; right click on it and select disable option to disable it and stop getting warning messages. You can enable it anytime you want when you get the drivers for it.
