Toshiba A205-S4707 audio dropouts

Hello,
I'm running a Toshiba laptop A205-S4707, Cubase SE, Alesis io/26 controler,using a FreeAgent Tera byte external hard drive 7200 bps for storage.

During recording my audio from other recorded tracks dropout intermitantly.
I have also tried Audacity and it drops out also.

I've went from 24bit to 16bit, lowered the color resolution on my monitor, turned off my battery monitor, networking and camera in device manager, and I've adjusted my sample rate all the way down and all the way up!

Tried mixing down all tracks to one track then importing it and recording another track with it but it still drops out at different times?

Thank you for your help, I've spent hours online trying to find help.
I finally don't know what to do.
John

    Forgot to mention I'm running Win XP Pro and the Alesis io/26 is firewire

  • geoffrey884 Nov 10, 2008

    Mine is an A205-S5804, and with that Alesis IO26, the dropouts exceed 60% at any latency setting, quite useless. Latency check shows up fine. The IO26 works flawlessly on my other computers, one of which is a P3-800 with 256MB ram !!!

    I believe the problem is that toshiba puts a shared IRQ between the Video and the expresscard slot, and windows will not install on a non-ACPI HAL on that machine, I think thanks to that SATA controller, so you can't change the IRQ = we're screwed. My final e-mail from alesis tech support was one of resignation on that computer.

    In the end, I gave up, and started using the forementioned P3 minitower for mobile recording

Hi,

I guess if your still looking for an answer your probably desperate. Never the less, if someone else is looking for an answer you need to select FT Pro in the preferances. Basically, you have to tell the software what to record and when. Pretty easy really.

How to fix TBX Error on Toshiba Satellite a205-s4707


Take out battery from it, and re-insert it after 15 minutes or so. This must make it a hard reset. If it too doesn't help you, make sure there is a software corruption has been occurred. Re-install the O/S is the only solution. Electro help

When using with PC you have to go into soundcard settings and disable the internal sound card and select io2 or asio drivers.
I'm thinking it's the same on a mac

My staellite A205-S4707 gets a charge, powers on but will not stay on for more than 30 seconds. any thoughts here?


A couple of thoughts,

Is this the case while connected to the charger? If not try starting it while still connected to the charger. If it runs OK, your battery may have died.

If it still doesn't run, it may be a over-heating problem. Check underneath, see if all the vents are clear and free of dust.

Toshiba Satellite A205-S4707 ethernet connection issues


Try this:

Open a command prompt. If it has been opened before you should see it on your start menu. If so , RIGHT click on it and select Run as Administrator.

If it is not directly on your start menu , go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > command prompt and do the same.

In the command prompt , type "ipconfg /release"
without the quotes of course.

Then type in "ipconfig /renew"

You should have an IP Address now.

Type "ping www.google.com"

you should get something like this:

On my Toshiba Satellite a205-s4707 dvd player not working


Allright this one can be tricky so we need to isolate the problem between software and hardware.

First, get into the bios and see it's being detected.

If not then turn off the computer and unscrew the drive from the laptop, MAJORITY of laptops only need to have one screw unscrewed to release the drive. If yours doesn't then you'll have to do a little more work, let's just assume you have the majority for now.

Next, pull the drive out, feel free to give the back connector a quick puff of air, now carefully place the drive back into the laptop so that it's nice and tight.

Check to see if that solves your problem.

If not we'll try something else.
