    A lot of this wecam issues are solved by installing the latest Service Pack for Windows Vista, SP1.

    And keep a check on your Vista updates. Always install the recent ones.
    By the way, when do you get this message, I mean, is it caused by a specific program or is it a standard windows pop-up?

    Hi Victoria (by the way, nice name ;) )


    I would recommend you to remove the old webcam driver from the Vista OS.
    Then visit the Toshiba European driver page (http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com -> Support & Download -> Download Drivers) choose your notebook model and download the Chicony webcam driver.
    Then reinstall it.

    I don’t know why you’ve got such webcam issues but mostly an new driver reinstallation would fix it.

    Well Vik… seems you are completely a newbie ;)

    Vista OS (Operating system) this is the “thing” which was installed on your notebook (or maybe it’s Windows XP??)

    If Vista was installed then you can remove the “old” webcam driver (software) using these steps;

    - go to control panel -> programs & functions
    - now you will get a list of installed software.
    - choose the webcam software (camera assist software)
    - choose remove or change
    - and then “remove program”

    After this short procedure reboot the notebook.
    Download the webcam software (driver) as mentioned in my first posting, unzip it and install it again.

    You need 3rd party applications like WinRAR or WinZip to unpack the zipped folders.
    Google simply!!! Then you will find answers for most of your “common” questions ;)
