SOURCE: Not responding to my laptop

The most common cause associated with the PC not detecting the camera is due to the fact that either the devie drivers have not been installed, or are corrupt. It is important to thoroughly read the Software Installation instruction manual as with some Cameras, the user is required to connect the Camera via the USB cable first, then insert the CD that came with the camera and then install the software and drivers. With other Cameras, the reverse is necessary, eg., you are required to install the software first and then connect the Camera via the USB cable. My experience has convinced me that even though Camera manufacturers recommend one or other of the 2 methods mentioned above, for whatever reason, sometimes the drivers just don't get installed. This may be due to things peculiar to your own pc system or conflicts with other software on your machine which prevent successful installation of the camera software or drivers. If this is the case, then you can access Device Manager in your PC and scroll down to USB Serial Bus Controllers and check to see if the USB and other drivers are installed. In most cases if the software has been installed but the drivers are not, or are corrupt, this will be highlighted in Device Manager with a Large Yellow ? (question mark) From there you have the option to check if the device drivers have been installed and also if the device is reported as working correctly. You may then engage the help of the Hardware Wizard to uninstall the drivers if they are corrupt, or install them if they are missing. Whichever is the case, it is usually necessary to restart your PC so that it can detect the camera when it has rebooted up. To locate Device manager on XP > click on Start > then right click My Computer > next left click Properties from the drop down menu > and then from the Sytem Properties Window which comes up, > left click on the Hardware Tab > then left click on the Device Manager Box and you're there.

SOURCE: windows error " Please turn on the camera"

Your lap top should have the necessary programming already installed.The cam is normally used in video,film or video chat format.When you have a video link on MSN MESSENGER,you can click on the video call to a contact,and even though they have no camera,they will get a video picture link of you from your camera but you will only be able to talk to each other,as you will get no picture as they have no camera.Get windows live messenger 8.5 and use the video link with your contacts.

Try going into the device manager and seeing if any is disabled or has a yellow exclamation next to it. If so try uninstalling it and refreshing the list to see if windows will reinstall it or reboot if it asks you to. If not then just look through the device manager to see if it is listed then uninstall it.

If you go into the control panel under cameras and scanners it should be listed there and you should be able to directly access it and preview video and take snapshots.

Go to Toshiba support website and ask them if this does not work. They may have an updated program or a proper driver for the webcam. If not then I am afraid the internal device has failed and your better off just getting an exteral webcam anyway. Logitech 9000 Pro is my recommendation.
