    Have you tried to restart the computer yet? If that doesn't work, try uninstalling the webcam driver then reinstall it.

    I found that by turning the User Account Control off, then going into the device manager, locating Imaging devices>USB imaging device>Updating driver . . (It will give you something like it couldn't install driver) i just click close at that point then restarted the notebook. It worked after that. Oh if it does, be sure to turn the User Account Control back on. Worked for me ! Good Luck ! D

    Go to the Toshiba website, goto drivers and downlaods or something and lookup your lappy, should give you all the software and drivers.

    Hello,
    I'm facing exactly same problem. I bought the M200 and everything was working fine. Then I upgrade the Vista from Home to ultimate and the webcam is not working. Its giving the same message "Webcam driver open fail. Please restart camera or computer".
    I have tried disabling the User Access Control and reinstalling but still nothing happens. Tried searching for the solution and found none.

    Any Idea how i can get this done!!

    Issue: When Vista os loads for the first time the integrated camera is not operational?

    Solution: Camera is operational only when you start ‘Camera Assistant Software. If you can not find this software check small ‘Camera Assistant Software icon’ in task bar - right mouse click - Show toolbar. There you can find option ‘Start webcam’. When you do this the blue led will be ON.

    Issue: Other programs already using the device?

    Solution: There might be some programs that is already attached with the device. To deactivate them, run msconfig by going to accessories and then run. Then under the tab labeled "Services" check the box that says "Hide all Microsoft services" and then click on disable all. Next, under the tab that says "Systems" click on disable all and press ok. You should then be asked to restart so press ok and once the computer is back up try with your messenger software and it should work.

    Check the Blue Led if its 'ON' , this indicates that the camera is working

    Uninstall/Reinstall Instructions;
    -double-click on the camera/imaging device which has a flag under "Other Devices" in device manager
    -go to the "Driver" tab
    -click on the "Update Driver" button
    -click on "Browse my computer for driver software"
    -click on "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
    -choose "Imaging Devices"
    -select "USB Video Device" instead of the "Chicony Imaging Device"
    -complete the wizard
    -restart the system

    Got the same problem with an X205. I've done that.... But only works for a little while, then same thing again... The Vista driver flat out sucks, and they need to fix it.

    Actually its not with the drivers and applications that is having problem. Its actually because of the updates that Microsoft that is giving bugs and problems on the laptop. My suggestion, if you think that your computer is working fine, don't update. Thats it.
