    The integrated Webcam does not work when you run Skype. If I run the Toshiba Web Camera Application the webcam works fine. However, when I test it in Skype, I get a message saying "cannot start video. Try quitting other programs that use the webcam '.

    However, as far as I can tell there no other programs available. I have tried Skype with the Web Camera Application clised & open. I also confirmed that I do run the latest version of the program.

    One of the main reasons we have this laptop is to use Skype video... Help, please.

    Disable webcam application start-up and exit this application before you start Skype.

  • VN7 - 791G webcam does not work with Win10 app

    After the upgrade to Windows 10 in my VN - 791G, webcam does not work in the Windows 10 camera app.

    * The exact error message is in Swedish, but a rough translation is 'something was wrong. Please check that the unit is plugged and it is not used by another application". It was after I closed BTW Skype (see below).

    * The camera works in Skype.

    * Driver version is "Microsoft HD Webcam' 10.0.10240.16384, the last found through Windows update.

    I can't find any driver here in the Acer site.


    My suggestion would be to remove the installed drivers and install again to see if that solves it, this is clearly a driver issue because it works with another application. I also wonder if there may be an update for the application of the camera through the Windows store, maybe.

  • Satellite A300-1NO - webcam does not work, but the LED lights


    I have a laptop Satellite A300-1NO, with Win 7 installed. My problem is that my webcam does not work always, when I want to use it. Sometimes, it works perfectly in Skype, WLM etc... but sometimes I see a white or a black screen with a 'loading circle' in there. Blue is the LED light, I can see it in Device Manager too, but there is no picture, just 'loading '. I tried to uninstall the driver and then reinstall it, I installed the new "camera Assistant for Toshiba", without success.

    Is there any solution for this?

    > Is there any solution for this?
    I put t think there is solution for this. If I understand you right there is a problem with software pre-installed. It is not easy to say why this is happening.

    I have Satellite A300 too and use it with Win7 32 bit. Webcam works fine all the time.

    One more thing: have you noticed this problem in the first moments after installing Win7 or later?
    Have you installed something that may be the reason for this?
