Why won’t the webcam work on my new Toshiba laptop?

Jake Anderson October 5, 2012

I bought a new Toshiba P845-S4200 laptop and my webcam wont work. I find the application but when i click on it a notice comes up saying webcam initialization failed and to recheck or turn off computer. I also got the companion trial but it says it cant find webcam.

What can i do to fix this?

    Press the windows button, right click "my computer", press properties, locate you webcam and try to install drivers from there.

    there might be a software problem.. try installing the drivers and software components such as dotnet frameworks..

    Check and install all the software that came bundled, usually this would be a DVD that comes along with the machine.
