I'm having a problem with my chicony integrated webcam. It doesn't show up at all, although I have installed camera assistant software. My laptop is a satellite a300d - 16w psak8e. Any ideas? I really have downloaded so many drivers but I don't think they are good for me. And the first days of windows 7 the webcam worked fine. Then the microphone didn't and when the microphone worked, the webcam didn't!
Hope it's clear, thank you

I also have a Toshiba A305-S6858 Fusion Finish that was Best Buy's most expensive model for $800 in August 2008.
I installed Windows 7 - 32 bit software a few months ago and now would like to use the webcam for Skype.
I installed many drivers and different Camera Assistance Software for countless hours trying to get my daughters USB chicony webcam working.
After reading the close the lid half way comments I tried it and now the webcam shows up in device manager every time I half close the lid.
The camera also works when I run the Camera Assistance Software.
So if you don't mind tilting the laptop to use Skype it works but is a pain to do.
Thanks Toshiba for using cheap hardware!!!!!!
