Specs: Windows XP
Please can someone help, i have a Toshiba Equium A100-147 running on Windows XP, the sound on it is Realtek High Definition Audio 5.1. But there is no sound coming from it at all, i have tried everything that i can think of to try and fix it but nothing works. I've checked my device manager, tried updating the driver, and everything i go on to do with sound it says that everything is working properly and enabled, but its not so i have no idea what to do. Someone please help.

Have you tried headphones, also checked to ensure nothing is turned down or muted?

I'm just trying those now, there is no sound with my headphones either, there is a small sound i can hear when i put them in and take them out but thats it. I have checked almost everything that i'm aware of, im open to anything that could help, but i thought i had an idea of it and i just can't seem to understand why it won't work feels like i've tried everything to fix this, all the sound buttons are up on my volume controls and nothing is muted..just don't know what to do. It has been broken for about a year due to a faulty hardware problem at the back where you insert the charger, so i've just paid all this money to have that fixed after a long time of waiting and now theres no sound at all. With it not being used for that long i'm not sure if it was working before with sound, but i'm pretty sure that it was, its just very annoying. Thanks for replying.

Could be your onboard sound module has died, or even something was disturbed during repair. I've no bright ideas but keep watching, maybe someone will have an idea how to try and diagnose this one.

1. We respond to these forums for free in our own spare time, purely to try and help others. Referring to our advice as crap is not the way to get assistance.

2. "You" are the one who is fixing the machine - we can only advise.

3. Some problems can only be properly diagnosed by someone looking at the computer and carying out tests. May I suggest that you find a suitable repair shop and do just that.

If it were mine I would try a Live Linux CD (such as Puppy Linux). If that didn't work either, then it would at least prove it was a hardware fault. If Puppy works then you would need to look into Windows further, with or without our advice.
