    "Webcan driver open fail. Please restart camera or computer" - This error message appears when I try to open or use my built in webcam.
    I am running windows vista.

    The webcam has worked fine for the last 12 months.
    I have tried installing the driver software again.
    Also doing a system restore and nothing seems to work.

    Anybody got any ideas/solutions

    Hi buddy,

    What Satellite A notebook you have exactly?

    Did you already reading other similar threads? Here in forum you can find a lot of information about this webcam driver open fail error message. In most cases a recovery installation from Toshiba recovery disk can help to get rid of this. :)

    Back up all your important data and install OS again using recovery disc or HDD recovery option. With “factory settings” everything should be OK again.

    I don’t think it is common problem. I use A300 with dual boot (WXP/Win7) and everything works perfectly.
