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.
Usually if the laptop come standard with a camera built in they have a program that you can use for it. As in i have a Toshiba Satellite and i have a built in camera and the program i use is called camera assistant software. and i can find that just by hitting the start bar and choosing all programs and looking through all the programs to see a program that might work with your camera
With most laptops, being proprietary, there is a lot of installed software that you don't need. One good thing to do is go to "Add / Remove Programs" in the control panel, and remove any Toshiba software you don't need.
While in the control panel, find the "User Controls" and disable it. That will stop the system from blocking startup programs. Vista Home Premium is really bad about crossing wires with drivers and other functions when it comes to instant messaging and web cams.
After you've removed all the unnessary junk software and shut off the User Controls - uninstall and reinstall the drivers for the web cam, and reboot your computer. Use your web cam through your instant messenger service only, and most of the time it should work. Also, if you're using a password to log onto your system, get rid of it (the password) by going to Users in Control Panel and select to change you password. Leave the "New Password" fields blank, and click "OK" or "APPLY" so there are no limits to the use of the system.
This is the method I used to fix one of my customer's Toshiba laptops and it works to this day (7 months now).
If all else fails, disable the onboard camera and buy and after market camera to be used through the USB port and that should also solve the problem as it will be a 3rd party install and not a Toshiba proprietary.
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...
Well it's not a complete solution but this does work. It's just a bit of a pain. Go to Control Panel > Device Manager. Now you have one of two options either update the software this works from time to time. Alternatively, disable the camera. Restart and enable it again and it should work.
Pls try this one, turn off User Account Control, uninstall Camera Assistant Software from Add Remove Programs, re start notebook, then download new Camera Assistant Software from support.toshiba.com for US Model or toshiba.ca/support for Canadian Model. Install this software, re start the notebook and try, the camera might work this time.
Your camera software is running in the background as it is loading when windows starts.
goto Start - Run - then enter 'msconfig' - Selective Startup - you will be able to pick which programs is for your camera. Remove the checkmark then click apply. That is a temp fix, if that fix your issue then you'd need to remove that program from the startup folder.
