Right click on the speaker icon on the bottom-right corner of your screen and select "Adjust Audio Properties" as shown here.

In the new window, check the volume sliders and drag them to the highest position. Uncheck the Mute checkbox (if already checked).

Go to your control panel then to your sound options to see if the volume has been muted or is turned right down, also click on the audio tab, if its all greyed out then you device isnt installed.to get to your control panel go to your start menu then setting.
let me know me know how you get on

I believe your audio chip to be the AMD HD so called HIGH DEFFINITION AUDIO CHIP

www.toshiba.com driver downloads would be the first place to look.

Always go to the manufacturer first for drivers. as they will be the most compatable.

The AMD HD audio chip is quite common these days , drivers for it can be found almost anywhere.

I personaly dispise the AMD HD audio chip as it's nowhere near as good as X-Fi extreme gammer card made by creative labs.

saying AMD HD audio chip is almost like saying AC97 codec , notorious for lousy performance.

I have the right to say I don't like the AMD HD audio chip , especialy when it can be proven that it's inferior to other solutions.

I recommend ditching it as soon as possible.

I have no idea why the computer industry thinks we're stupid.

I know this post will fixya , please overlook my rant lol

How do i change the cmos battery a toshiba a215s7422


The cmos battery used on the A215 is the soldered type. It is a small battery soldered in a small bracket on the motherboard. You have to disassemble the laptop down to the bottom case. Once you have removed the palmrest you will see the battery in its holder in the middle of the motherboard. The solder has to be softened to remove the battery and another soldered in its place. Below is a link to the picture of the motherboard with the battery in the moddle of the board.

Have you done re-installation of window?

Do you have the motherboard Cd with you? Since audio driver can be easily install from there.

Otherwise google for the audio driver for your Laptop and select the appropriate one.

Toshiba Satellite P25-S5092/ Computer will come on, but screen will not work. Wondering if it is most likely the LCD screen itself, the backlight or something else.


Hi,

If you have deduced that indeed the Toshiba Satellite P25-S5092 will boot and therefore operational except no display on the screen, you can always verify by connecting an external monitor. You of course would need to press Fn + F? (the F key with the small monitor icon).

As to the LCD screen having no display, often this could either be the CCF lamps (cold cathode florescent) and/or the inverter that powers it. One way to verify this is by shining a flashlight obliquely to the screen and a portion of your desktop would show albeit very very dark. Often, it is the inverter that fails. In some instances it could even just be a cold solder, loose connection or capacitors that have dried up, leaky or blistering.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Toshiba Laptop crashing


Hi vfcork4al67, did your notebook come with restore cd's or a windows cd? If yes load your restore cd or windows cd into the cdrom drive. Boot the notebook. The notebook should go to the cdrom & start to load the cd. Follow the on screen instructions if you booted to the restore cd & re-install the operating system. This will over write windows & repair windows files. If your not using a restore cd but do have a windows cd repeat the same instruction above as if it were the restore cd.
I'll post a link for your Toshiba Satellite a100 notebook but there are many A100's. You will need to find the correct notebook you have. Click the link below & find your notebook.
http://www.toshibadirect.com/td/b2c/afin.to?stt1=Notebook%20PCs&stt2=Satellite

Once you find the corect A100 download the network card driver. You will need this to enable you to get online & download all the updated drivers for your notebook. I suggest you update windows asap. Many drivers & software installs need many window updated files in order to function correctly. Turn on windows firewall to help protect you while downloading & untill you install virus protection. Need some free virus protection. Click the link below & download & install AVG.

Good Luck & have a Great Weekend!
