Windows 7: Toshiba Satellite L300 notebook,s camera and modem problem in Windows 7

24 Jan 2010   #11


I installed Windows 7 on my sons Toshiba Satellite A305 Series laptop and found the exact same issue with Windows 7 generating an error message " web-cam driver open fail " So to fix this problem here's what you specifically need to obtain listed below. BTW - I actually joined the forum just so I could post this solution. It's a slightly older driver but works perfectly fine, make sure to un-install the failing driver before you install this one!

It may sound stupid but you can try A4Tech drivers for windows 7 .I saw that trick on my cousins laptop and it may work for you too.

Windows 7 (64 bit)

Hi everyone,
I'm a new user to this forum. I currently have a Toshiba satellite L305D-S58393. Initially it was fitted with a Windows Vista OS, but I upgraded it recently to Windows 7 (64 bit). I am also having the same problem in that i am not able to access my webcam unless I am using programs such as Skype. I am not able to access it (Chicony) to just take pictures or make a video outside of such circumstances. I tried to download the camera assistant software that was on Vista hoping that a superior system would be able to open it but I keep getting the same message that the camera failed to open or that I need to restart my computer, which I have done on numerous occasions. Can someone tell me how they solved this problem? What can I download to allow me access to my camera settings?
