    The computer is a Toshiba Satellite laptop L555-s7929. The webcam came built-in, but it's not showing in Device Manager, nor can Device Manager find it when I search. I downloaded a driver, but when I tried to install the driver, I got a NotePad display of a computer program (with if-then statements, etc.) saying the device was not found. Does anybody know what's going on?

    It's built in. How do I check if it's turned on? (This is not my machine, btw...)

    The webcam wires run up near the hinges on alot of laptops. They often get damaged by the hinges, usually whne a hinge breaks. If it's not showing up I'd guess that it may have come unpluged or the connector wires to it are broken or damaged. Of course this is assuming that your windows and registry is sound.
