Was this the driver you installed?

 

Toshiba Web Camera Application(v1.1.1.15; 02-23-2010; 28.78M)

 

If not, try downloading it.

 

Did the camera ever work? If so, maybe something got changed. You could try using System Restore to restore a previous restore point from before this became an issue.

 

If the driver and System Restore don't help, you could try a recovery if you don't have data on it yet that you care about losing.

 

Recovering your laptop to its original, out-of-the-box state is a great way to eliminate software as a possible cause of the problem. Note that doing a system recovery will return the laptop to its default conditions, completely wiping your data. Information on how to perform a system recovery can be found in your user's guide.

 

You might also want to contact support to speak with a tech support agent at (800) 457-7777.

I've seen Skype interfere previously (which I know sounds strange because many people use the webcam primarily with Skype). Try uninstalling Skype, then reinstall the drivers, then reinstall Skype.
