Windows 7: Webcam Driver Open Fail

Webcam Driver Open Fail

Webcam Driver Open fail. I get this prompt every time I start up my computer with the suggestion to restart driver of computer. Neither of which does any good. I've attempted uninstalling and then installing a new driver from the manufacturers website (Toshiba Satellite A305D-S6914) where there is a driver available. The webcam does work, but only when my laptop is partially closed, which more or less defeats the purpose of a built-in webcam. What's more, the webcam driver won't even show up in the device manager unless it is partially closed.

Any suggestions for a next step? I'll be contacting Toshiba as well but I figured I'd cover my bases as this appears to be a widespread issue with Toshiba, so I don't have much faith in what they may or may not be able to tell me.

Almost sounds like a broken wire running from the motherboard to the webcam. I would definitely send this laptop in for a warranty repair.

Yeah turns out it's actually a common problem with Toshiba computers. Well, I was hoping it was going to be a driver issue, since it turns out Toshiba will repair the problem . . . for around 185 dollars. Thanks again.
