Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S7476 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop won't recognize internal webcam.

I've tried re-installing drivers, I've tried finding it on the files, but the webcam won't even show up in the device manager... it's obviously there but the computer always tells me it's either not turned on or disabled.

Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there
if you are have trouble with your webcam

Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp

Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7

http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html
on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right

software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours

Windows XP/Vista/7/8


It might take some time being a freeware driver solution

note: it will find all of your outdated drivers

this is a free driver solutions

This will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you

want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated

Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.

Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

SOURCE: Disabled Satellite A215 internal speakers and now can't enable!

you may want to try and reinstall the driver from the manufacturers website. I had to do that with a brand new notebook as the speakers didn't work when first turned on. I'll see if I can locate a link and post again if I find it.

SOURCE: Computer won't play or recognize anything on dvd-

Looks like you are missing the DVD decoder. If you are using Windows lower than Vista Home Basic (Including) like Windows XP, they do not have the DVD decoder installed natively. Download a decoder and install it. Better still get a Good DVD player like Win DVD Player. You can also try this. Install a trial version of a DVD player. Even after the trial period expires probably your DVD will still work since the decoder is now there. Not checked but it might. In any case, if you like the player you can make it fully licensed on-line.

SOURCE: i've installed windows 7 in my toshiba

I think the problem is that the A300 is a discontinued model and if I am not mistaken there is probably no windows7 drivers for the camera istalled on that model, perhaps using an extrnal cam is another solution. good luck

Webcam not working


would start out by testing if the webcam works in any other software. For example if you got any software to go with the cam to set it up. If the webcam works in other software you follow these steps:
Open the messenger menu in Yahoo! Messenger and click My Webcam.
There you click on File and then Preferences.
That should open an options window. From there you go to Webcam or Webcam Broadcast.
There you'll find a button that says "Camera Source".
Make sure that the selected Webcam there is the one that you're using and click OK.

Otherwise if your computer doesn't recognize the webcam at all I would suggest to reinstall the drivers for the cam. You can either find them on a CD that you got with the cam, or if you didn't get one you can go to the manufacturers webpage and look for "Drivers", it's usually found under "Support" or a similar section of the page. Find the driver that matches your webcam and operating system (such as Windows 7 or XP etc.)
When you've downloaded them, install the file you got, follow the instructions and restart your computer and then try again. It should fix your problem.

My a4tech pk-635M is not working with windows7 operating system, how can I fix this problem.


Have you installed the driver for the device yet? If not, go to this page & click on "Driver for PC" & follow the installation instructions.

If you've already done this before, just uninstall the current driver installation, re-download the file and reinstall it. If the issue persists, try a different USB port and as a last resort, test the camera on a different computer.

This device should have no problems working with Windows 7 unless there's something wrong with it.

You can try to install Webcam driver. You've not mentioned your OS; i think you use Windows 7. But HP only support Vista. You can give a try to download and install Vista driver. In most cases it solves the problem.
Here is the links for Vista 64 bit Webcam driver:

After downloading Win 7 on my dell studio 1535, my microphones stopped working. My webcam also tells me I need to download video chat. I've downloaded it but it won't upload.


Go to the Dell Download area ( http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=STUDIO1535&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid= ) and choose the drivers you need. This laptop is not officially supported under Windows 7, so you will have to try the drivers for the Vista version. These often work, but not always.

How to install webcam on my latitude e6400 dell computor


What webcam are you trying to install. Most of the time it will be a USB connect webcam and you can follow the directions that cam with the webcam. If you do not have the directions or software to the webcam, do a search on the particular cam (Name, Model Number) to find the software so it can install the supported drivers.
Hope this helps-
