Re: Toshiba Satellite p300 with Toshiba dynadock
One question, are you using Adobe Type Manager? Adobe Type Manager is not compatible with multiple display support. When Adobe Type Manager is installed, multiple display support is disabled. Go to start>control panel>add/remove programs>currently installed programs, choose atm and click remove. You may be asked to restart click yes. See if this resolves your issue. I hope this helps a little.

As far as I know, Toshiba laptop does not have a reinstallation partition in their laptop, so you need to use Windows media (DVD disk). If you don't have a specific Toshiba DVD (your laptop comes with this DVD), then you can use a generic Windows media, and later you need to download the drivers from Toshiba's website.
If you don't have the Windows media, then you need to buy it form Toshiba, Microsoft, eBay or this guy: http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/sys/4359959590.html
When you get there,Then scroll down and select your operating system (ex: XP, Vista, or Windows 7). It will then show all the drivers for your operating system...scroll down and select page 2. Then scroll down until you see the camera driver software and then download and reinstall it. Hopefully this will help...good luck.
if using XP, go to start control panel , sound and audio devices.Under the audio tab make sure the C Media CM106 sound device is selected under sound playback. Then under the volume tab set the volume somewhere in the middle or at the top if you don;t have active speakers . Then Under Speaker settings advanced, make sure the speaker setup is set to Laptop Stereo speakers. Also make sure the speaker volumes are up on the speaker volume button. click ok. If no result check that the cm106 sound decvice was cemented in as I saw it dissaper when I thought i had slected it. I think the key thing here is the device and the laptop speakers setting.
I had the same problem. I went to the Toshiba sight and downliaded all the drivers for Windows 7. I loaded the new dirvers. The first time that I restarted the laptop I had the same result. I turned off the computer overnight. When I came into the office this morning and turned on the computer it resumed audio without the static that you would normally hear whether with system sounds or the media player. It absolutely has to do with the drivers since the headphone jack works (dynadock not in the loop). I would reccommmend not just restarting but turnung the Laptop off and restarting.
