Hi,

I have toshiba laptop Satellite A300, It had windows vista installed in this laptop but i formated and installed Windows 7 and since i have installed this windows 7 my webcamera is not working it gives an error "webcam driver open fail.please restart camera or computer" and even after doing this its not working.

And after installing this windows I think the display setting is also out of order, I tried to install the sorftwares and drivers from toshiba support but no success.

Hello sajjad

I’ve made very good experiences with Satellite A300 and Win7. In front of me I have Satellite A300-1LI. It is PSAG8E model and I can confirm that everything works perfect.

I have one offer for you:
Send us please exact notebook model and we can check Toshiba download page to see what is available for Win7 for your notebook model.
I can also send you exact installations order how to install all Toshiba stuff.

Please let us know what you have done to get camera work.
Let us know how you have installed Win7 and all Toshiba stuff (drivers, tools and utilities).
Do you have some other issues with Win7 on your Satellite A300?

See you :)

Hi sajjad,

I agree with the user above. I have Satellite A300 too and installed Windows 7. Everything runs properly and I used the drivers from the official Toshiba website because Satellite A300 is Windows 7 supported.

Maybe we can find the solution for this. You should post your detailed installation order for the drivers that you have installed.

Make also sure that all Windows updates are installed, the latest webcam driver and load the default settings in BIOS.

On my Satellite A300 (delivered with Vista) I have installed latest version designed for Satellite A500 (Vista version) and it runs perfectly.
