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.
Shar I turn on the program for my camera, and all I get is Graph Render Fail, what am I supposed to do to make my darn camera work? I tried finding help on the site, but it's useless, nothing for troubleshooting. The day I got the PC, the camera worked fine and everything, and today, nothing... Can someone help me? Thanks I have the exact same problem, but unable to resolve "Cannot open file C:\Program Files\Camera Assistant Software for Gateway\corona\BG1.bmp". I can't uninstall the software either--I get the error "setup.exe has stopped working". Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

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
