    Hi pro.surfer,

    Do you know the forum search? If not you should use because you will find many threads with this error message and a lot of useful instruction what do to.

    I don’t know which driver you mean but you need the Camera Assistant Software for webcam. The microphone is a part of webcam so you have to install the webcam driver. ;)

    Hello

    To be more specific: What “solutions” you have already tried?
    -Driver update?
    -Windows update?
    -BIOS default settings?
    -BIOS update?

    Last but not least which disk for Windows 7 upgrade did you use? Is it from Toshiba upgrade offer?
