I have searched for the kind of problem that I am facing with the webcam and havent got any solutions for it yet, hope that I will get a solution here. I have a Toshiba laptop that has a built in Chicony webcam in it. Now the problem with the webcam is that, most of the time it will work flawlessly, but sometimes it wont open and give an error that it is locked by another program. But after I restart the laptop everything seems to be working fine again. So, my question is how do i solve this irritating problem, because i dont want to continuously restart the laptop to get this thing working.
