Hi,

I have Portege M600 and already installed Windows 7 RTM. After windows update, everything running well for all hardware certify with Microsoft but, when I try used to webcam, the program show some error message:
It say "webcam driver open fail. please restart camera or computer"

Then I restart until twice again but nothing happen and show the same error. I check device is working properly. I already reinstall webcam software too.
Any clue or suggestions ?

ps:
I used Vista 32 software as default driver

Thanks
Akuma

Vista drivers mostly work in Win7, but there are some exceptions.

Have a look on the Toshiba US site, they have posted up some beta win7 drivers. Perhaps there's an updated webcam driver that works in Win7?

Hi

I completely agree with Akuma that you should try the Windows 7 beta driver for the Chicony webcam from the Toshiba US page:
http://www.csd.toshiba.com

But remember that Windows 7 isn’t released as yet so it’s a little bit difficult go get tested drivers for it.

Furthermore it would be interesting to know if the same happens with “factory settings”.

Bye

Had the same problem with windows update driver and the vista camera drive. Nothing work checked the europe site and download thier new chicony driver for my L300-5875s. It was released 3/09 I think install and rebooted worked fine. Doest show up in device and printers though other than that no problems with it. Hope this helps your problem
