Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 Notebook

3 Answers

Hi! I bought a 2nd hand Toshiba Satellite L300 online. The camera used to work fine before, but after converting to another OS (Windows 7 Professional 6.1.7600 Build 7600) the camera won't register any image. Its all black. By the way it has a built-in Chicony USB2.0 webcam (CNF7051). I can't make it work. I tried installing then uninstalling all over again but it still don't work. I want to make the built-in webcam working again, but I don't know how. Can you help me with that? Thanks in advance!

    what was the previous OS you had installed. is it Windows XP or Vista?

  • sergeant_soa Dec 04, 2010

    The previous OS was Windows Vista Basic (sorry forgot to mention that). The camera used to work fine back then, but won't receive images after converting to Windows 7 Pro. Can you please help me? We really need to make it work before Christmas. I was hoping someone could help me. Thanks!

Click on start, just above start you will be having a bar " search for programs and files".in the search bar, type in as "devmgmt.msc" and press enter. you will be getting the device manager window coming up. you can see a lot of names arranged in alphabetical order. click on the plus sign near the "display adapters". you can see the name of the chicony web-cam, right click on it and click on the first option, update driver software. click on the option "update driver software automatically". after the driver has been installed restart the computer. make sure you have the laptop connected to the internet before doing this process. please try this and tell me whether it worked or still you experience problems.

Contact with the seller of your laptop. He will get bundled drivers with laptop while buying new laptop. If you get the drivers then install proper camera drivers in it. If you will not find drivers so click on this link if link is not working, copy this link and paste in your address bar of your browser. Download all drivers for your PC from this link. Install them in your computer. If still not working, then it is a technical problem. Thank you !

Laptop goes on some few minutes after being shut down.

you cannot blame windows xp because according to me it is such OS that it removes many problems of windows 7 and 7 and vista makes your pc much slow and many features dont work but windows xp is free from these errors.actually you hear the sound but nothing appears on the screen.this is because your cpu fan is running which takes somes time to stop.may be some problem of the hardware especially the mainboard.go to any repair shop and just get it checked.

I have a Toshiba satellite Pro L300 just upgraded to win 7 and my web cam is not working, where can i download its driver?

Need the full model number from the bottom of the laptop, it'll be something like "L300-EZ1525"

From there you can go to the toshiba website and look for the camera drivers.

Go to:
Click the blue Download link
Select Laptop in the left category,
Select Satellite Pro in the next category,
Select L300-XXXXXXX replacing the X's with your specific model,
Then hit go.

On the next page you get a long list of downloads, click on the drop down that says "All Categories" and select "Driver".

The list is updated with drivers only, look for anything that says Camera, if there are any you may notice it says Windows 7, click that and download that and you should be good to go. Otherwise you can try the one for Windows Vista, if that doesn't work, you'll have to contact Toshiba support by email or phone and see if they have a solution.

I own a toshiba satellite pro L300 but i changed to windows 7 but now my webcam ain't working and also when i just turn on my lap top there is a message that says webcam driver open fail. pls restart your...

You need the driver for the webcam to work. Toshiba did not have the webcam driver listed separately for download. You may find it in the toshiba drivers for update to windows 7 here

***However first do READ which laptops the drivers are for and make sure it includes yours! They are not for older laptops. There's two versions to download. There's a link on the page above to read before downloading and installing the toshiba drivers. Not every thing will run under windows 7 yet*****

Unfortunately it is not uncommon for toshiba's laptops to out live the built in webcams....
