When i got my toshiba tecra 9100 (windows xp pro, sp2) the sound worked fine, nothing at all wrong, then i just turned it on one day and it doesnt play sound at all, ive been through device manager and the sound device isnt listed at all, also, when you open the sounds icon in control panal it too says no sound device detected. nothing dodgy has ever happened to the computer, ever. i cant have deleted a driver because i havnt deleted anything on it yet.ive been on the toshiba website and download several versions of drivers and when they install it stops near the end of installation saying driver not installed and cancels. is it the driver or what?, some advice would be greatly appreciated., thanks :)

you might have to get a portable usb sound card if you mean dont have a sound card installed also control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers or audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have selected the right speakers also control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound,could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers hope this helps
1. You may have the sound disabled in the mixer. This is a default when installing a new sound card. 2. If you have Windows 7 you may have to run your card in the Windows XP mode if there are no drivers from the manufacturer yet available. 3. check the volume control also in the Windows task bar to see if it is set to "0" this is also common when changing sound cards. 4. You also may have to disable the sound card on *********** board via the BIOS to enable your new sound card.
Try to update your drivers from your laptop vendor website. You can use also some drivers updating software like this one: http://www.mediafire.com/?miendd4mj4f - Driver Genius Professional 22.214.171.124.rar
heres a suggestion go back to xp service pack 2. service pack is very easy to use and more compatibility than sp3. right now my 10 pc's are all xp sp2 and they have no problems about the sound.hope that helps
XP updating to SP1 seems a little odd in february of 2008, why not SP2?
To get into your BIOS you need to hold down escape key as you turn your laptop on and keep it held down until it reports an error, then press F1 to check BIOS. You can actually alter BIOS from within the OS environment with Toshiba laptops through a utility called HWSetup and I suspect that's where your problem lies.
Make sure your audio device is enabled in BIOS and if you need to re-install HWSetup you can find it here:
Pls check in BIOS in advanced options, if the onboard audio is enabled or not. If not, enable it.
Pls check if the windows audio is enabled in services.msc.
If it is listed, make sure tht it is enabled.
If it is already enabled, stop the service and restart it.
If it still doesnt work, then download the driver from the yamaha website and then install it.
No sound? The only solution I've found is to get a USB headset like the Logitech USB Headset 20. I have had this same problem with my Tecra 9100 for almost 6 months. I tried on a pair of USB Headset and it works! because it bypasses your internal soundcard. The downside is that if you have a great pair of speakers on your laptop, then it's kind of a waste that you can never use it. But at least, with this, you can now listen to CDs and chat on the internet
