Exclamation Webcam Driver Missing! I've tried everything! Please help!

I've restored my computer to factory settings, I have already installed all the drivers multiple times but I still cannot get my webcam to show up in the device manager. I've tried everything! It worked the first month I had the laptop and then all of a sudden, it disappeared. Now all I get is a message "Cannot find camera" with a blank screen. And when I check the device manager, my webcam doesn't even show up. My mic works, but my built-in webcam for my Toshiba Portege R705-P25 (Windows 7) is completely missing. Please help!

Go to Control Panel then System go to to device manager and see if the camera is in the device list.
Is the drives OEM drivers, from the manufacturer or from a 3rd party source?

It does not show up in the device manager list (unless the file name is something I don't recognize), it's as if the built-in webcam never even existed but it worked the first month I had my laptop and suddenly disappeared.

Is the drives OEM (preinstalled) from a separate disk, or from a 3rd party source?

The webcam came built into my Toshiba laptop, I didn't have to do anything, it just worked automatically. The Drivers CD that came with my laptop to reinstall drivers is on a CD, separate from the laptop. It didn't work, even after downloading drivers multiple times.

Could the webcam be damaged?
