Toshiba satellite pro c650,Built in web cam working satisfactorily till yesterday. now giving message 'unable to find pc camera'. kindly help.


A couple of things to try.
1) Go into your BIOS and ensure that the webcam isn't somehow turned off in the BIOS. 2) Go into Device Manager in Windows, find the webcam. Right click on it and remove it. Then reboot the computer and let Windows find it, and reinstall the drivers again.
3) You may also want to reinstall the Toshiba specific drivers and software which likely includes drivers for the webcam. You may have a CD that came with the laptop, otherwise you can go to

and reinstall the webcam application for your laptop.

Hi. I have a Toshiba Satellite L25-S119 laptop. I just bought a Microsoft Lifecam HD-6000. However, when the Microsoft Lifecam application launches I get an error message -> lifecam.exe has...


The first thing to try would be to right-click on lifecam.exe and run it as administrator. If that does not resolve the problem. Then open Device manager. Start->Run-> In the run box type in devmgmt.msc and hit enter. See if the camera has been detected under imaging devices and let me know

How do i take a picture on my Toshiba laptop


1. Open a program called"Camera Assistant." This is a Toshiba-supported computr program designed specifically for people with cameras built into their laptops.You can find this by clicking on the "Start" menu and then navigatingto the "Programs" sub-menu. 2. Press the"Picture" button in the "Camera Assistant" program windowto take a picture using your built-in camera. This will take one stillphotograph for every time you click the button. The image you are taking willappear on the right side of the main program window. 3. Press the"Video" button in the "Camera Asst" program window tobegin recording video using your built-in camera. This will record video untilyou press the "Stop" button. The video you are recording will appearon the right side of the main program window. 4. If you can't open"Camera Assistant," reinstall your drivers. Though the camera on aToshiba laptop is designed to work right out of the box, if it doesn't you mayneed to reinstall the driver that makes it work. Look for the CD labeled"Drivers and Software" that came packaged into the box with yourToshiba laptop. Pop it in your laptop's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive and install the"Digital Camera" driver contained on the disc.

On Startup, I get an error message: C:\Program Files\Camera Assistant Software for Toshiba\CEC_MAIN.exe Please reinstall program I have tried to reinstall the driver and it still does not work


to stop getting the error message, type msconfig into the run/search box.
Go to the startup tab and untick the entry for the camera.
Uninstall the software, run a cleaner like CCleaner, run the registry cleaner.
Download the latest version of the software and try again .

Hello , 

You may need to go to the manufacturer to download the software & drivers ,

You may also may need to scan your system for infections to see if that software is infected and unable to load & work , their is several place to have your system scaned for free or scanned and repaired for a small fee / just make sure that the company is reputable as in 

Symantic , Mcaffe , Panda Security 

also try rolling back the driver for you may have gotten a bad update for the software or driver / this is done thru the device manager

It says can't execute CEC Main, reinstall program


This is what I know about this issue. I'm guessing you have a built in camera and anti virus program installed on your laptop. What you will have to do is to uninstall the driver for the camera, and disable your anti virus for a while. then you can reinstall your camera and it should work.
If you need further assistance with the procedure, let me know and I will help you with detailed instrucations. I will need to know what anti virus you have and which windows you have installed

Ceccmdll.dll cec-MAIN.EXE HAS STOPPED WORKING


Have you just installed a new security app such as Kaspersky?

If so you could so allow CEC_main.exe in the firewall which should cure the problem.
