Camera Assistant Softwar for Toshiba Not Working

Just bought a Satellite A200 Part Number - PSAF6A-07G01N Satellite A200, Intel Core 2 Duo T7250

and after a few captures the camera is no longer loading via the taskbar, side toolbar or selection from start -> Camera Assistant Software. Prior to that everytime i loaded the camera it said it was locked by another application (don't know which one).

Now it won't load at all.. Help!

    I load up my camera on my toshiba satellite L300 and the dash bar appears and the image comes up on screen. It will take photos or record audio, but when i click video it states "locked by another application. I hunted through my pc for an application which would cause a problem and found nothing. I then searched though local activity through the registry and the camera software was not accessing any software nor any software was accessing the camera. I have uninstalled the driver and re-installed it, loaded it with other software and tried the acer and compaq drivers (which are all supported) and nothing has rectified the problem.

just had the same problem with mine (after I installed Kapersky Internet Security). It kept on saying that CEC_MAIN.EXE needed to be reinstalled every time I booted up my toshiba laptop. I've just downloaded and installed this driver and all is good!

Hi, If you start up your camera and go to settings, then click on the video tab, then untick the box next to "play after rrecording". The prrogram apprently is using windows media to play back video with its codecs, if you have ticked the box it will bring up the codecs in the backround. thus making the error "locked by another application".
I found this by mistake, this never happened on the windows XP version. It still used the codecs =, but it never locked the application in the process.

Install the Hotfix for Microsoft Windows (KB931812). 1. Review the background information in Microsoft Knowledgebase Article 938315.
2. Review Microsoft Knowledgebase Article 931812 and fill out the Web Submission Form for the Hotfix.
Microsoft will send an e-mail message with a download link for the Hotfix.
3. Click the link in the message to download and install the Hotfix.
The built-in webcam should now respond correctly to requests from applications.

I have bought this Toshiba laptop few days ago and had had the same issue.. i think the problem is with the software.. now what i do is i start the camera... if it gives me black screen i press f5 and then again click the snap shot button.. this works..
the same i do with the video. when it shows locked by another application .. i press f5 and then start it again.. in my case it works..

(i also tried) when it doesn't work i press the default option and it starts to work..
in my case f5/default both works(USE ONE)... but still if there is any remedy for life time that would be a real lifesaver..

My Wifi is not working. My laptop sound is scratchy. I want to upgrade my processor from celeron to core 2 duo which one i should select for cpu upgrade?


Two main things to know before you can attempt a Processor upgrade.

1) What Processor socket is on the motherboard?

2) What motherboard chipset is on the motherboard?
(Northbridge and Southbridge chip. Unless it's a motherboard that supports Intel Core 13, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 processors)



According to specifications I found online just now, the BenQ Joybook A53 comes with an,
Intel Core2 Duo T7250 processor,

http://laptops.techfresh.net/benq-joybook-a53/

Scroll down.

(Only 512MB's of DDR2 Sdram (SO-DIMM) ram memory that operates at 667Megahertz?
{ PC2-5300} Yecch! You need at LEAST 1GB of ram memory. (512MB + 512MB = 1GB.
2GB would be best)

http://www.laptop-software.com/benq/benq-joybook-a53-features-and-specifications/

Information on the Intel mobile Core2 Duo T7250 processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Core_2_Duo_2

Scroll the page down until in the left column you see T7250. Then read across, and match the headings above.

Uses a Socket M processor socket,

Is your problem directed to a BenQ Joybook A53 Notebook PC, or is it another model?

I have Inspiron 6400 Dual-Core Processor T2060(1.6GHz/533MHz/1MB) can I upgrade process only with Intel Core 2 Duo T7250 2.0GHz 2MB 800 CPU SLA49


The Inspiron 6400 was offered with a choice of three Intel Core 2 Duo Processors; the T5600, T7200, and T7400. The T5600 offered 1.83Ghz, with a 2MB L2 Cache. The T7200 offered 2Ghz, and the T7400 offered 2.16GHz of processing speed. Both the T7200 and the T7400 featured a 4MB cache.
I'm sure the T7200 will work, likely the T7250 but no guarantee

Laptop Toshiba Satellite A200 Model No. PSAF6A-02C01N fail boot


Try removing / swapping / reseating the memory.

Try booting with one stick only, if the top slot doesn't work, try booting the bottom slot. Try both sticks.

Let me know what happens.
