No sound on my Toshiba Satelite A105-S4134

September 25, 2011 at 15:07:09
Specs: Windows XP, Genuine Intel(R) CPU T2400 @ 1.83GHz / 2GB
I inherited this laptop after it had been repaired. It hasn't been used for possibly two years. I wanted to listen to something online, but no sound. I then tried a CD. No sound. I plugged in a headset and tried both options again. No sound. I checked the control panel and did the troubleshooting stuff. Still no sound. Any suggestions?

Look at Device Manager to see if the sound is present and working properly. If present but has a yellow exclamation mark by it then you need to install the sound drivers. You probably need to install other drivers too.

Post the brand and full model number of the laptop.

I checked that. I have yellow question marks by other devices (listing mass storage device, video controller, video controller [VGA compatible]), but no yellow exclamation marks. I checked for other exclamation points, but that is all that was out of the norm. Sorry, didn't realize the make/model doesn't' show in the post, just in the subject line. It it s Toshiba Satellite A105-S4134. I also dried using Windows XP update option, but nothing was out of the ordinary.

Thanks for the effort, but it doesn't appear as if the site you directed me to has this model. I await another response.

I have downloaded the drivers (based on the above suggestion), but still no sound. Any other suggestions?

Check device manager to see if the sound is working properly. If device manager says it is then check all settings to see if sound is muted, volume is too low, or the speakers are disabled.

Apparently I need to give you more details. I have gone to the device manager and there are no yellow exclamation points. I have looked in the sounds and Audio Devices section and nothing seems to be wrong... no mute boxes checked in the volume control, the correct device is in the "sound playback" I did the step-by-step troubleshooting for the Realtek HD Audio and that was not helpful. I do not have extra speakers attached to the laptop, so it is just the built-in speakers I am trying to use. I have tried just testing a sound and tried using a headset. The "use this device" is enabled. The correct device is in the "sound play" and "sound recording" boxes. I went through the whole troubleshooting steps. Nothing needed to be changed so a restart was not required. I when to Realtek site and did not find any new drivers... I am totally stumped.

If the laptop has Realtek HD sound then you may need to open the sound manager and program (choose) the way the speakers will be configured. I assume you could connect external speakers if you wanted to?
