|recently, near Christmas of 2014, I had received a Toshiba Satellite C50d b 120, and...|
Silly me for not reading the manual to notice that it already had a recovery partition, but this aside I had the intention of creating a recovery medium for my laptop via an external CD-Drive, laptop does not have an on board drive, nor didn't allow me to create a usb medium.
Furthermore, I had made the mistake of plugging my laptop power source into the input of the cd drive, Immediately upon contact my PC shut off, as if it was forced. So, yes, I shall subject it to an unexpected power surge.
Upon turning it on, it was asking for a Hdd password, this was irrelevant and remains irrelevant as I have changed hard drive with a previous hard drive I have owned.
Upon changing hard drive, this has allowed me to get to boot and Bios, post ect.
I get reminded that RTC battery is low when I leave my laptop off Ac for a day, as if It can hold a charge but not for long.
Which I know these are small, but I expect them to hold enough to last longer than a day.
If I recall the same battery type is used in Gameboy cartridges, and can last for five years if I remember.
Anyway, upon any sound expecting to come out of the speakers, even at POST, it sounds crackled, which drops in and out of crackling and silence.
Earphone port is affected with this. But not as bad, it can act as if it has not been affected at times, playing sounds and music perfectly, but over time, it progressively deteriorates in volume. And the crackling becomes more prominent as time passes.
HDMI is not affected in any way. Problem is recurring no matter what operating system I use.
I can live with the problems, I do like perfection so it just momentarily irritates me to experiences these problems. Just happy that my laptop is somewhat in a great working state, but would be ecstatic if these two were corrected and would love some tips.
I somehow think these two problems are related, as if RTC battery is causing sound problems.
