    Hi there
    I’m having trouble with my Toshiba NB100, after installing win 7 everything work just fine apart from the webcam will not work, all I keep getting is webcam is disabled.

    It is listed in device manager and supposed to be working but not to be seen in my computer and web messenger can’t get it going either.
    Any ideas please?

    You likely need a Windows 7 driver for your camera. The lowest "NB" model listed on the Toshiba download site is the NB105 so you may have a problem getting what you need if the driver is the problem. I installed 7 on my wife's Toshiba netbook, it's an NB105, and everything runs fine but its Windows 7 drivers are listed for download.

    You could try installing the Toshiba Software Installer For Windows 7; it used to be posted on the Toshiba download site. It works somewhat like Windows Update in that it checks you computer and then downloads the drivers you need to update. You can also set Windows Update to check for drivers and see what it has to offer.
