    Shutdown the laptop. Shake it up and down to see if there's any sound of a floating CD disc inside. If not, then I would keep feeding another CD and another ...and see how many could it take before it chokes! Anything that has mass, occupied space!

If drivers is all you need that is easy. Toshiba has a support page for all of it's notebooks and other hardware that has all the drivers that came with the machine. Your particular driver download page is at the link below. Also available are manuals, troubleshooting tips, etc. This page should open on the driver download tab, it not, just look at the tabs for Driver Downloads.

If you found this helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback, that is helpful for me.

Thank You,

Web camera not active

Without any more information, the issue could be with driver for the web camera or the bundled software for starts web camera.

Both can be updated from the Toshiba web site...

Make sure you do not have another program trying to access the web camera at the same time - such as MS or Yahoo Messenger.

If this fails, go to Computer Management (Start then search for Computer Management) - go to the Device Manager and make sure you can see the web camera on the right side of the window. If you cannot find the web camera, look for a yellow ? and update the driver using the above link.

That sounds "impossible".
Close the CD-tray, and turn the computer upside-down, and then open the CD-tray, to see if a "lost" CD disk will be ejected, by Newtonian gravity.

The tray of cds does not work properly, does not allow the change of disc to disc and stuck

Try pressing repeatedly the eject button while you turn on the unit. If this doesnot work
then it is a mechanically problem in your player .

You need to manually open to take out the cd .

The rubber thread which should be connected to the motor inside the cd player might have moved from its place.

You need to place the rubber thread to proper place.

Also if the belt is slipping, the mech never gets the "drawer closed" signal, and the disk will not spin.
