    There may be two pissibilities1. The device driver you installed may be only for the webcam so reinstall the exact driver which may fix the problem.2.the microphone may not work.Solution:connect your webcam in your friends lap and check whether it works.if yes you need to find the correct driver. Else repair your mic.

    hi there,

    you must have got a drivers disk with your webcam. Use the disk to install the driver software for the webcam and mic will start working.
    Also check for the compatibility of the device with your operating system as well.

    If the problem persists, try using the device with another computer, may be the device has got an issue with its mic. If its working fine on the other system but not on your system with the drivers from the disk, you should contact the service center of the manufacturer.

    You can try to uninstall the device driver for your webcam and you can manually disable automatic Windows update for drivers.

    After that try to install your webcam driver again along with your webcam and see if it works as windows will not automatically go on the net to look for drivers or preconfigured drivers.

    To disable it go to Start and type gpedit.msc in the Start Search and press Enter. Once Local Group Policy Editor is open navigate to,

    Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Driver Installation

    Now from the right sidebar open the key named “Turn Off Windows Update Device Driver Search Prompt” and select Enabled and click OK.

    Now Restart your computer or Log Off and then sign back in.

    Uninstall the webcam driver using Control Panel > Uninstall a Program

    -Use this guide to completely remove old driver:

    Reboot

    Install webcam driver & additional apllication directly downloaded from TOSHIBA Website

    Hope this will solve your problem.

    A few possible reasons can be the reason for what is happenning to your system webcam.

    The webcam microphone can be dafective,
    The Software that you possibly have installed in order to communicate with the webcam was incomplete installation and working partially.
    The device driver for USB port which is possibly the point of connectivity might be damaged.

    Check the physical entity of the Webcam, install it in other system and verify the microphone condition.
    Reinstall the software from the installer diskette with care.
    From Control Panel--device manager--USB controller--Driver--update the driver and exit.

    Try those tricks and things should not trouble you any more.

    it might be due to the missing of the driver software or might be the current one is corrupt

    so uninstall the present one

    download the latest driver software for web cam

    install it in your system

    also scan your system properly

    if it does not work the problem is with the web cam itself

    so replace it

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...........

    1.This may be the problem of the connections.

    2.The microphone have no correct connections i think so.

    3.So try to fix it by making it open.

    4.If that is not your problem then you check that you have connected your microphone.

    5.If that is not your problem then the problem is with your settings.

    6.So open you Audio Manager and there you set the audio input as Microphone and at last save the changes.

    Have a nice day..............
