\015 The webcam is locked by another application while there's no other progam ruuning.What can i do?\015

Answers :

I don't know what exactly fixed the problem but I managed to fix it. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A215 by the way.
\015\012
\015\012Here's what I did
\015\012Control Panel >> System Maintenance >> Device Manager
\015\012
\015\012Go to Imaging Devices and right-click "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera" and choose "Update Driver Software"
\015\012
\015\012First I clicked on "Search automatically for updated driver software"\015\012but everything was already up to date. So then I went to "Browse my\015\012Computer for Driver Software" and then to "Let Me Pick from a List". I\015\012updated the USB Video Device and rebooted but that only made it worse I\015\012think. Then I tried updating one of the "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera"'s and\015\012that did the trick. Yey. So now my webcam works.
Try Pesante80's solution.He/She is absolutely correct...it is the webcam software. I un-installed the software that came with the laptop...and voila! My webcam now works...no more irritating messages! I went into add/remove ...removed the offending program, and restarted the laptop...cam works great.

Black Screen Hi, I have a Toshiba Satellite and a problem with the built-in webcam: not the "blocked by another application problem" that everyone else seems to be having. My problem is that the camera works for a few seconds then the screen goes black. The person on the other end can hear me still, they just can't see me. Does anyone have any solutions? I've tried updating the webcam, enabling it, and disabling it but nothing worked! Thanks!
