Toshiba Satellite A505 S6980 Web Cam Problem

After restarting, installing drivers, and googling extensively my web cam has not magically fixed itself. It is a built-in webcam for the Satellite A505-S6980 laptop, and while at one point it worked just fine it now refuses to initialize. "Web camera initialization failed. Please check your camera device and restart application or computer." Is the exact message I get, and I am at my wits end. Please help, I can't even find the webcam on my list of devices so I have no idea what to do. Thanks.

I'm having a similar problem. i got the same message this morning on my satellite a505 s6960 model. I uninstalled the web cam software, and haven't been able to successfully reinstall it. Don't know what to do now...

I am having the same problem on a T135D. It was working fine and updating the driver worked for about a day before it went back to giving me this message. Someone please let me know how to fix it, I use the webcam a lot.
