    Yes the BIOS update COULD be an issue, Was there an issue that prompted you to do the BIOS update?

    If it works, I would let it be. The BIOS is like a minefield, one wrong step and..........You have a expensive paper weight.

with. The problem description might not be the exact same error that you are getting but it's worth a try. I've tried this patch on a number of issues that isn't included on the description. This is also a bit safer than downloading other patches from unknown third-party websites since it is coming from microsoft themselves. Just click on the hyperlink below or copy and paste it on your address bar if it is not available.

I have a toshiba laptap model SATELITE PRO C650-18D with part no. PSC009E-00S009EN and serial no.7A500870Q... i have a problem with its built in web cam... before it's working but after sometime


If it's an internal webcam,the one on the top of the LCD monitor,look for a key on the keyboard which has a webcam picture on it,usually between F1-F12,but not always
If it's an external webcam,that connected to USB ports,open the device manager
Right click on My Computer and select properties,then click on the Hardware tab and click Device Manager, expand the Universal Serial Bus Controllers by clicking on it,and see if there are any USB device that has "?" sign on it. If there are one,right click on the device and select uninstall,uninstall it and then restart your computer,when the computer turned on,the driver will reinstall automatically
Please let me know if it's working or not,and thanks for using fixya
