Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A305D-S6848 Notebook ?

Integrated chicony webcam driver seems to be current and installed, but webcam seems to not exist. It used to show and work fine, but once I installed AVG virus blocker it seems as if it does not exist.


Answers :

I know this is an old post, but just in case others are having webcam problems with their a305d webcam... There is a problem with many a305d satellite web cams, the cable/wires that connect the webcam to the motherboard are weak and badly routed. They usually fail due to fatigue at the hinge where it flexes/bends every time the lid is opened/closed. The first symptom usually comes in the form of random Windows USB connected/disconnected sound notifications when the lid/screen is moved. The second is a random USB device not recognized error. Finally, when the cable totally fails, you get a camera driver not loaded error. I've seen bunches of these units with this problem and usually repair it by cutting and removing the section of cable at the aforementioned bend in the hinge area, then soldering and heat shrinking the repair. I then reroute the now shorter cable behind the monitor rather than around it. I do this because it's easier and cheaper than sourcing a new cable and allows a faster turnaround time. \015\012

  • So, even tho the OP attributed their problem to software, it may not be the actual problem at all. You see, most of the time users blame a newly discovered problem on the last major system event (software or hardware installation, removal or failure). It is a good place to start after all and many times they're right, but just as often they only noticed the problem after the event and the event has nothing to do with actual problem at all. As a tech I see this all the time.
