Question about Computers & Internet
Hi i have a toshiba laptop A205-s5880. I'm having problem with the camera, everytime i turn it on it works, but after 3 sec. it stops filming, but the blue light that indicates the camera is working is ON and the screen gets dark.
it may be driver problem. look for an updated driver by 1. going to windows update website and do a manual update and look for a new driver for your camera or even better, 2. check toshiba's website's knowledge base for solution if there's a specific fix from toshiba or a possible update for your driver. (i was trying to do that for you but the website is currently down 11-7-08 at 12:33am) http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp?nav=Product%20Support give a try hopefully you will have better look due to timing.
check also device manager and find the status of the device and post back with your findings on that device.
lastly.. you way have to give him a call, some problems are hardware related and if your product is still withing warranty you may need to send them your laptop for them to have the issue corrected or the laptop replaced.
