    Hi

    In the past (Win7) Toshiba has offered Webcam driver and webcam application. Since Win8 Toshiba doesn't offer such drivers and application. Webcam on Win8 uses standard Microsoft driver.

    Do you have some problem with your cam?

    I agree with Liam; the webcam driver for Win 8.1 isn’t available!

    Toshiba does not provide such Win 8.1 webcam driver separately.

    Usually you need to reinstall the Toshiba System driver because this package contains the drivers for such devices for example: internal webcam

    ok so i tried to reinstal the system driver didnt work aswel :/.
    is there like a bios setting you need to turn on?.
    if so how?

    Some BIOS contain an option to turn on/off the internal webcam.

    But in case the webcam would be disabled in BIOS, the webcam would not be listed in device manager.

    Even if there is an yellow exclamation mark, the webcam is still listed in the device manager… therefore I don’t think the webcam is disabled in BIOS… anyway, you can check the BIOS if such option is available there…

    I think in worst case you would need to set the system back to the early time point before this webcam mistake has happened.

    bump so i installed the latest system driver for my notebook, the bios indeed had an option to enable/disable the cam.
    i made sure it was enabled and rebooted my system.

    still no diffrence i was thinking about when this issue started occuring and i came to the conclusion it stopped working once i updated my bios through the official toshiba update service tool.

    so im hoping toshiba knows of this problem and is working out a patch.

    im still not sure if the system driver for windwows 8.1 64bit. covers the webcam driver. can anyone confirm this?

    Yes, the Win 8.1 Toshiba System driver covers also the internal webcam.
    So ensure that the webcam is enabled in BIOS.
    Then perform a complete shut down (notebook must be completely OFF)
    Then power up the unit again and check the windows device manager…
    Here you can also click on “View” and enable the option “show disabled devices”

    I think there is one last option: use the Toshiba recovery medium and recover the notebook back to factory settings…
    After such recovery process the notebook should work properly…

    Of course this would be a drastic procedure but currently it would be the best option…
