Sound card on a laptop is integrated on motherboard, and there is no way to fit inside an external one.

Try first reinstalling the driver, you can download the driver from manufacturer website.

If drivers do not fix it, and you are sure the audio chipset is faulty, all you can do is using an external usb card and speakers, like this ones:

Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Micro USB Audio Adapter
SIIG SoundWave 7.1 Audio Adapter

But most of the times you fix the audio by reinstalling drivers.

call the phone company and they will either unlock it for you or have u come into the store to get it fixed. DO NOT KEEP TRYING TO UNLOCK IT. if u try to many times, you will completly get locked out and will have to get a brand new sims card

Sd card reader not working

First check if are any drivers missing. If there are, try update drivers to solve. If not then you must open the notebook and check if there any visual damage in the card reader inside.

the cheapest way to fix this is to buy a usb card reader, there plenty on the market for abou 10$ or 15$. If the internal card reader is damaged you would spend a lot more money to fix it.

I cannot listen to anything from my p.c and when i try to open a media file the computer informs me to install a sound card.tell me hoe i can fix that

If you have a desktop computer and your sound card is not integrated, you can try to take it out and put it back on. If is integrated then you need to buy a card. They aren't very expensive, unless you want something fancy. If is a laptop then you might wanna get a PCMCIA (if you have money to spend) or buy a usb one like the Philips Aurilium 5.1 USB.

Refrigerator makes thumpa-thumpa-thumpa sound when it's running.

i would start saving up for a new fridge,,if yours is 10 years old its getting past its best by now so its realy not worth spending good money on trying to get it fixed up as its going to pop its clogs soon anyhow
a new one would be cheaper to run plus it would look nice so you could show it off to all your friends,,,
its like,,,eat your hart out i got a new fridge!!!

Soundcard acer aspire 5630

Laptop speakers are usually **** so you could spend a lot of time and money on something that won't make a difference. Try plugging in external speakers to the headphone jack. If the sound is good don't bother looking for a fix.

No sound on my computer

you could try a number of things:

1. try to go into control panel and look for your sound device under hardware, make sure it's "enabled", and try to update the drivers for your sound card.
2. go to control panel, click on sound speech and audio devices, then click on adjust system volume, and then check the box that says place volume icon in the taskbar
3. If neither work try using the system restore feature and restore your computer back to a date where u know that the sound icon was still showing in the taskbar.

X205-S7348 HELP

try updating the video card drivers on toshibas website. there are some games that you will not be able to use a high setting on. this system is a good unit but if you wanted better gaming performance would have recommended the x205-sli5 or sli6. the sli systems have two video cards that work together to give you the best possible performance.
