Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I just got a toshiba satellite laptop with built in camera. problem is when i activate the camera all i can do is see myself. woopee!! i bought the computer with the camera to make video calls back home when i travel for work. for the life of me i cannot get the thing to work. i have tried yahoo messenger but it knocks my laptop camera out of commision because the camera thinks "something else" is controlling it (in other words, it won't even turn on so i can look at myself). Yahoo messenger also seems to slow down my home desktop camera. Can you help fix this so i can call home and see the wife and kids as clear as possible, as reliable as possible and all without the hesitation of those Max Headrom commercials from years past. Thanks

Toshiba laptops with built-in cameras tend to come with proprietary software that controls the camera. You're going to want to disable or turn this off prior to using the camera in an IM client.

Alternatively, since you seem to be having issues with Yahoo, consider trying Windows Live Messenger. Also previously known as MSN messenger, clients can now talk to people using Yahoo messenger. You might be able to have a video conversation that way, without having to deal with Yahoo.

I have a toshiba satellite A205-S500 I am looking for a replacement black keyboard and I believe the LCD Screen needs to be replaced where can I buy these two parts and can I install them myself.


You are looking at about $200 for keyboard and LCD, and you could buy them from here http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,A205,PSAE3U-07Y023,Laptop,LCDs-Displays.aspx
As for installing them yourself, it's pretty easy if you're handy with a screwdriver. Have a look here for a video guide:

I need to add RAM to my Toshiba Satellite M55-S3262 notebook, can I do this myself or do I need a authorized service technician?


If you can access the memory module by removing some of the screws at the back of your laptop, you can easily add RAM if there are vacant slots for another RAM in the RAM slot. Ideally, the RAM should be of the same memory capacity as the original RAM installed in your laptop. Just handle the RAM module at the edges so you don't damage the sensitive components. You can avoid this by discharging static electricity from your body by placing your hands on a grounded object.

The g and h keys came off my satellite A135 S7403 notebook. Can I find just relacement keys, or do I need to replace the entire keyboard. If I need to replace, is it something I can do myself? And if so,...


Sorry to say most laptop keyboards come complete. But Toshiba laptop keyboards are not that expensive. The labor is usually more. Some laptops keys can be reinstalled, there is a metal wire that is the piviot and the other part snap in place...Contact a independent service tech will be cheaper than Best buy, or Staples , etc...

Hello sandeep

Since the problem here is compatiability issue. Suggestion: why dont you try other video chat programs. Skype is also good for video chatting and free to use. If all doesnt work you should consider asking for a replacement.

Best of luck
