Toshiba Satellite L500 Web Cam Trouble

I have had my toshiba satellite l500 since christmas. The in-built web-cam worked fine with the web cam application. I tried connecting a ps2 eye cam to see if it would work as a external web cam. It doesn't. First of all it just said it wouldn't work. I unplugged it and tried opening the web cam app. It said there is another application blocking. I restarted. Now when i open it, it says "web camera initialization failed. Please check your camera device and restart application or computer". I uninstalled the ps2 cam to try and undo what i did. It doesn't work. Please help. I have no idea what to do! I have windows 7 by the way.

Toshiba Satellite E100 Webcam Doesn't Work

So i uploaded windows 7 over my vista on my toshiba satellite e100. The only problem now is that my webcam doesn't work, my touchpad scrollbar doesn't work, my finger printing doesn't work, and well all the things that my laptop came with. I went on my c drive, and thisáfolder had all the drivers of my vista i believe. But when i install them, they do not work. I went on the toshiba website, downloaded all the windows 7 drivers. But they are ridiculous, unimportant, and don't work. How do i fix this?

Toshiba Raid Driver

I'm trying to install windows 7 ultimate over vista and it all goes okay until it tells me to uninstall the toshiba raid driver due to compatibility issues).

Win 7 Installation Problem In Toshiba Laptop

I just purchased a toshiba satellite l555d-s7005.

This laptop doesn't come with install disc, just restore disc which restores all the default bloat ware along with the os. Thanks toshiba. I called their customer service department and they told me that they won't sell just an install disc, only the restore disc.

I called the microsoft store and they told me there was a 95% chance that i could do a clean install with the windows 7 home premium backup media and use the oem key that comes with the laptop.

So riddle me this microsoft, does anyone know for sure?
Any why doesn't install disc come with laptops anymore? I have my guesses but wow does it suck.

If it doesn't work, is there a work around? Or will i have to do a system restore and manually delete all the extra bs, which is no longer a “clean install”

No Install Disc Came With New Toshiba L500 Laptop

When i bought my toshiba l500 laptop with windows 7 installed there was no windows installation disc/s with it, i thought all computers were to come with the original windows install disc/s to avoid piracy. I know when i bought my desktop computer it came with windows vista installation disc/s with the original security codes etc.

I too am having a problem with my internet crashing. And it takes my vista anywhere from 7 to 10 minutes to go through the crashing stage before i can do anything. I don't know how many times i have to re-set my ie8 to get it to stop but it is frustrating for meábecause i get on here to relax and i can no longer do that. There are enough problems with people being down right rude but when you cant play a game because ur ie8 crashes all the time it gets really frustrating. I wish you would get this problem fixed and soon.

Toshiba Laptop Drivers Issue With Difxapi.dll

I upgraded my toshiba satellite laptop from vista to windows 7. Ever since i've been having problems with the computer. When i start using the laptop after its been hibernating or in sleep mode it freezing in less then two minutes and i have to shut it down. Sometimes it just freezes at random and i have to shut down. I was told i needed to install a chipset driver.

Everytime i try to download the chipset driver from the toshiba website it gets almost all the way through the process but then stops on difxapi.dll everytime. I did some research on this dll and got the impression it had to do with my registry so then i've bought software to fix my registry and that didn't work either. Not sure what else to do, please help!*Original title - unable to download toshiba drivers for windows 7 due to a dll.

Media Center Crashing

I have a copy of windows 7 professional 64bit installed on my desktop computer here at school. I have been using windows media center to record cable television with my happauge pci-express tv tuner.

It has no problems in any of the other menus, but i can't scroll more than a few entries to the left or right in recorded tv before it says "windows media center has stopped working" and then crashes. Help?

Explorer.exe Is Crashing

My system was infected yesterday by one of those fake antivirus programs. Usually i am able to get rid of it fairly easily. I run spybot search and destroy as well as defender. It seemed to have removed the problem. I restarted the computer and now i am having issues. Explorer will not load on it's own. All i get is a black screen with a mouse pointer in the middle. I used alt-ctrl-delete to start the wtm and explorer through it. But i am unable to open any folders.

After clicking on any folder it takes about 30sec for a message to popup stating: "server execution failed". I can start start most programs through wtm, but i want to run the disk check to see if there are errors. Is there anything i can do? Or should i reinstall? I would hate to do that, but if it's the only option.

Live Messenger Keeps Crashing

Wlm keeps crashing even when i try running it, never mind logging on. Every time i click on it, it doesn't open, it just displays a message saying"windows live messenger has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. " And you all know all the stuff it says after that. I tried restarting my pc, which is running windows xp sp3, if that helps. I also tried uninstalling and re-installing the program, twice, and that still didn't help. If anyone could give me advice on how to fix this problem that would be great.

System Crashing / Unresponsive

Okay, so yesterday my computer just froze and went totally unresponsive, after waiting about half a minute it recovered from the crash and continued as normal until it crashed again, this happened several times. One of the crashes caused a bsod and i had to restart my computer, i decided to check the event viewer and i found that at the time of each crash a warning event was shown saying 'request to pd 4 is timeout. ' with the source being a motherboard driver 'mv61xx'. I believe mv61xx is a sata driver for my motherboard, for which there is only one driver available, i have tried reinstalling the driver but thatádidn'táseem to solve the issue. I don't know what else to try, suggestions anyone?

Pc Will Not Shut Down And Explorer Crashing

Hey, so when i try to shut down my computer it just gets stuck on the shutting down screen and i have to switch it off by holding down the power button. I'm fairly sure this is because the system cannot end certain processes but i don't know which ones. At first i thought it was itunes because it wouldn't open but would start a process that wouldn't shut down. Then i got it uninstalled and it hasn't helped. Now the other problem, maybe related? When i right click on the desktop explorer crashes (not ie). It doesn't just shut off but stops responding. For some reason i can still use the taskbar and start menu (i thought that was part of explorer). And my computer is constantly running at 100% cpu usage. Its an hp laptop running windows 7 and has had windows on it for at least a couple months running fine.
