    HI AvioriX,

    Thanks ever so much for the reply. I had already checked out all of the volume settings etc. & visited toshiba website for the download. I had to search a bit as the Satellite A15-S127 did not appear on the dropdown list. I searched and found the SoundMAX driver in the "search all" downloads dropdown. However, after I updated the driver...still no sound.

    Turns out I was seeking the wrong driver possibly... Under device manager >system devices>system speaker listed was Intel(R) 82801DBM LPC interface controller, Microsoft, date:7/1/2001, Version 5.1.2600.0, signed by microsoft windows publisher, Details tab, Device Instance ld - ACPI\PNPO800\4&32D50c2&0 - under properties the driver was not installed. Do you think this is the problem? I found a download of this driver, it automaticly installed under "system devices". I am wondering if it is a simple matter now of which device is enabled in device usage? Thoughts on this???

    As a reminder running XP home SP2

    Thanks again for your help!

"No sound" issue can be related to several reasons, First try to play an audio and observe if any visually player moves, If yes you need to check all volume control settings, mixer and external physical volume dial. If attempt of playback comes up with error, I strongly recommend reinstall the driver. Please use the manufacturer's driver source. You can obtain the original driver at free of charge

Hope it will help, if you need further assistance please don't hesitate to post more under this thread.
Good Luck

Hi i have compaq 6720s after re install of window xp my sound is not working I m gating msg no sound device pls help me

If you have not run Windows Update, this is the place to start. Go to Start - Programs - Windows Update at the top of the menu. It will detect any updates required or optional for your PC. It will also check for any hardware updates that are available for your system. You should select to install of the hardware updates and see if there is an update listed for your sound card. It will be obvious if there is one. If not, let me know and we will go get this from a different angle.

I cannot get any sound from my dell inspiron 1000 laptop. I have downloaded the latest drivers (SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio) but still all of my volume controls are greyed out. Then it gives me an...

The driver you installed is not WHQL
which means you require to use the Driver Update options on Device Manager.

If your using Windows XP -
Right Click on My Computer and PROPERTIES
Open Device Manager
Scan for hardware Changes by Right Clicking on the Computer Icon at the top of the collapsible list
If the Audio or Multimedia Controller is greyed or has exclamation or question mark.
then its not properly installed
Update or Install the drivers.
Soundmax Drivers should be somewhere on your C:
since not all driver packages are WHQL .. they dont integrate with the system quickly.
It should start INSTALLING ..

Sound card on IBM R50 THINKPAD

Your sound card is "SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio".The chipset manufacturer name is "SoundMax".It's very hard to define what sound comes with any Notebook if the driver is not installed.We too search the Internet according to the Notebook company,model,series etc.

If you need the driver,here is the download link

Your Sound card support only Windows XP, 2000, 98SE.

Sound Device Missing? I have an IBM Thinkpad X61s

Hi, you can do a better search using the product # from under the laptop on IBM's website instead of x61s, I think you need to remove or update the driver with the device manager, here is a link to some X61s drivers, try the chipset one first, you may need the HD audio patch too. post the product# and I'll search for it.
