Chicony webcam not recongized? (GRAPH RENDER FAIL)

[ Edited ]

I am using the Skype and the webcam suddenly errors with "Unknown error"

I checked with Chicony Camera Asisst Software and it says "Graph Render Fail"

Any suggestions?

 

P.S. Laptop is Satellite L300 (unsure what model)

Satellite L300 (unsure what model)

There is a label on the bottom. What is the part number?

 

What is the service-pack level of your Windows Vista?

All your drivers are here. Bookmark that URL.

 

If you have 32-bit Windows Vista, try reinstalling this camera driver.

Did you succeed installing it? No errors?

 

If so, try removing the driver first. Open Device Manager (devmgmt.msc), expand Imaging devices, right-click the Chicony device, and click Uninstall. Then reboot and reinstall.

 

 

Which version of Windows Vista do you have? What is the service-pack level?

 

Do you keep Windows up-to-date using Windows Update? There are reports that this helps the webcam situation.

Re: Chicony webcam not recognized? (GRAPH RENDER FAIL)

I have the same problem, my Chicony webcam doesn't appear at device manager....I think my lap doesn't know that have a webcam! I tried EVERYTHING! And looked EVERYWHERE!..Also a did the "recovery operation" twice  like the out box and the problem still...When I try to start the webcam appear something like this:" webcam driver open failed. Please restart camera or computer"...It always appear! Even though I reboot my lap!

 

What Can I do???

Thanks in advance.....

Have you tried moving lid toward closed position and seeing if camera goes on?  There is a manufacturing defect with the cable between the lid and the motherboard.  It is not a software or driver problem.
