Camera assistant software not working

Everytime I try clicking on my webcam it says cannot open file corona\start_bg.bmp . How do I fix this or get that file back. Do I have to uninstall the camera assistant software and reinstall it? If so, how would I do that? I recently downloaded Skype and also want the Web Cam (Chicony Camera Assistant Software) in lid of my Toshiba Laptop (P205-S6267) ... to turn on.

The Icon for this Web Cam is in my Task bar, however I can not find any mention of it among my list of downloaded programs.

I am unsure re. which model of Web Cam, I have. Could this be the model #?? UVC 1.7.115.0213

Thank you for any help.

    It seems my company provided Toshiba laptop has a web camera installed above the screen. I have tried using it/turning it on various ways, including the "Camera Assistant Software" by Chicony that already exists on this computer, to no avail. I've searched the computer for other web cam programs, "HELP", or instructions and cannot find anything else... when I try to use the camera toolbar is gives me an error "Please turn on the Camera".



    Is the camera actually installed? It sure looks like it's in there (lens n' all) and there is a sticker that reads "1.3m" which means it must be there! :)



    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    same as main post. sometimes the camera assistant pops up, and other times it doesn't. I've tried a restore and a re-install but that did not work either.

That probably is just a "Back-Ground-#1' bitmap image-file.
Does your camera work without this file?
Can you create a "bitmap" file (using the PAINT program in the ACCESSORIES folder) and call it 'BG1.bmp', and store in into that 'corona' folder?

Toshiba\corona\start.bg.bmp Not Found.


That is an image file, it may have been moved or deleted, looks like from the file path it's a background image. If you want a quick solution you could just re-install the software. If you're feeling techy go into MS paint (start,programs,accessories,paint) open a new image paint the background black and save it as a .bmp called start.bg then place the file in the Toshiba\corona voila you've replaced the file...

go here pick your model number / operating system. download / save to desktop and install. note vista users right click and run as administrator. and then

1. Click the Windows Start button.
2. Click Control Panel, System and Maintenance and then Device Manager.
3. Right-click on Chicony USB 2.0 Camera and select Update Driver Software. A yellow exclamation point indicates that the camera is recognized by Windows but is not working properly, probably because of problem with the device driver
4. Select Browse my computer for the driver software.
5. Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
6. Select USB Video Device from the list, and click Next.
7. If the message “Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device” appears, click Close.
8. Restart Windows.
this bug is tricky good
