Question about Toshiba Satellite A305-S6863 Laptop

1 Answer

Sound crashes often, then cannot adjust volume

(I'm not completely sure this is the exact model. Mine says it has an Intel Core2 Duo processor t5550, and 3gb memory.) At least half of the time when I try to adjust the volume on this computer, it doesn't do anything and it tells me it's not responding so I click "restart the program" and the taskbar and desktop icons disappear for a second, the reappear. But the volume icon in the taskbar doesn't come back so I still can't adjust the volume. I tried going to the control panel after that and adjusting it from there, but then it crashes again. If I restart the computer the volume icon comes back and I can sometimes adjust it then. This is really annoying; anyone know what's going on? I'll try to get more information if you need it. Thanks!

    Oh, and when it's not responding the physical volume wheel doesn't do anything either.

Sounds like your sound card drivers are corrupted and causing problems with your OS. You may need to either upgrade them or reinstall them.
What OS are u using?

My core 2 duo E6550 does not work on my foxconn g41mxe motherboard


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186187

Motherboard supports Processors with a Front Side Bus (FSB) of either 800Megahertz, or 1066MHz.

1333MHz FSB support is done with OVERCLOCKING.

http://ark.intel.com/products/30783/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-E6550-%284M-Cache-2_33-GHz-1333-MHz-FSB%29

Intel Core2 Duo E6550 processor has a 1333MHz FSB.

http://www.manualowl.com/m/Foxconn/G41MXE/Manual/297328

I reduced the view size to 120 percent. Go to Page 27.
Press DELete key to enter BIOS Setup.

Use Down Arrow key to highlight - Fox Central Control Unit
Press the Enter key

CPU Frequency Setting should be set to 333 (333MHz)
Intel processors are 'Quad Pumped'
333MHz x 4 = Approximately 1333MHz. (1332)

http://www.foxconnsupport.com/cpusupportlist.aspx?type=mb&socket=Socket%20775&model=G41MXE&cputype=Intel

Note the version of the BIOS program also.

My Wifi is not working. My laptop sound is scratchy. I want to upgrade my processor from celeron to core 2 duo which one i should select for cpu upgrade?


Two main things to know before you can attempt a Processor upgrade.

1) What Processor socket is on the motherboard?

2) What motherboard chipset is on the motherboard?
(Northbridge and Southbridge chip. Unless it's a motherboard that supports Intel Core 13, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 processors)



According to specifications I found online just now, the BenQ Joybook A53 comes with an,
Intel Core2 Duo T7250 processor,

http://laptops.techfresh.net/benq-joybook-a53/

Scroll down.

(Only 512MB's of DDR2 Sdram (SO-DIMM) ram memory that operates at 667Megahertz?
{ PC2-5300} Yecch! You need at LEAST 1GB of ram memory. (512MB + 512MB = 1GB.
2GB would be best)

Information on the Intel mobile Core2 Duo T7250 processor,

    There really is no difference, there are differences in the E numbers though. Those are specificallt about it's GHz's, it L1 and L2 cache.

    Though Intel Core 2 Duo is the same as Intel Dual Core. It's just a different name. This confusion is caused because of Intel changing the names of it's processors series. The Pentium brandname for example is gone. Intel Pentium Dual Core is now called Intel Core 2 Duo.

    I hope this answered your question.
