First check that your volume is not on "mute". On XP go to your Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Volume tab >uncheck "mute" box, or adjust speaker or device volume

To test sound:

Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Sounds tab > program events >choose any sound event and click arrow for sound test

Update your Media Player and makes sure you have download all Windows updates especially sound drivers by going to:

Or you may have to reinstall your sound driver via your restore CD

Go to Google and try downloading the Realtek AC97 drivers. They are a pretty generic audio driver so should work.

Lets start at the first step here
If you are running any version of windows:
Step 1: in the bottom right corner (near the clock) there is an icon that looks like a speaker. Lets first make sure the sound is up all the way by clicking on the icon once & then turning it up ALSO while you are on that icon make sure the sound isnt muted. there will be a little check box on this sound menu that pops up when you click on the speaker icon (near the clock).

Step 2: assuming the volume is now all the way up and we checked to make sure the volume isnt muted, according to toshiba's website I looked up you model number that you gave me thanks by the way, and they suggest pressing the FN (function) key plus the Esc (escape) key together to make sure the sound isnt disabled or muted.

I am going to leave you two links one to the toshiba user manual for your specific computer, and another for the downloads and support page for your specific laptop, if those obvious things are the problem with the sound there are other things we can do such as updating sound drivers and checking the settings in the control panel to see if some how the sound has been disabled, also we can check the device manager in the control panel to see if we can test the sound card to see if its working. I am hoping the steps i listed above will help. if not please let me know i wil continue on with more touble shooting

This link below is to your user Manual for your Laptop:

This Link is a the Downloads & Drivers page for your laptop which includes many sound drivers.

If the steps above dont work your sound card may have quit working, a few questions

what operating system are you running such as
windows xp, windows vista, linux, leopard?

also have you ever heard sound from this laptop?

Reset the bios password Toshiba A105-S2131 i cant do nothing, no dos, no windows when i just turned it on tha screenn of logo toshiba apears and then the password, if some can helpme ai really apreciate...

Sounds like you have a bootup password set in the bios. Press the key for getting into the bios and if it does not ask for a password then you can change the setting for bootup password.

If not then you will have to have the bios reset. In a desktop it involves unplugging the computer and either removing the battery or using the jumper to clear cmos.

On the laptop it would be unplugging it, removing the battery, accessing the internal area to remove the cmos battery to clear the cmos.

Where is the cmos battery located on a toshiba satelite A105-s2131

There are several access panels on bottom of your laptop. These should have markings that designate what is behind each. CMOS battery can be either behind the hard drive panel or the memory card panel.

Alternatley, you can try this link to Tom's Hardware where someone is discussing how to do on a similar model.

Hi, I need some help (BIOS locked)...

ok i found a couple more things...apparently you dont have to remove the battery.. I found this site that tells you two "jumpers" (solder squares) C88 i believe under the network card. But if you follow this link and follow the directions it will get you going again.

I don't know exactly at what stage you are at and i hope i didn't cause any trouble but this normally is how we take care of this problem. Unless once in a blue moon we come across one like this.

Hi Badsun,

For all Windows XP operating systems, and also Vista, you can press the 'Windows Key' and the 'Pause' key together to get your system properties up. This will show you how much RAM you have installed in your system, along with the speed of your processor. Quite a useful little shortcut! :)

Hope this helps!

Black screen problem

you did not discuss how old, check the battery indicator bar,also check the video driver to insure you have a current version. Look in Control/Video.

Toshiba Satellite A105 - S4547, screen goes black when using the battery (not plugged in)

check your control panel/video to ensure device driver is current. use when on battery no pic suggests that the battery life span is shortened. Recharge and check how long the battery level lasts when doing normal internet or document reviews. Video playing drains the battery at a high rate, when battery is already low, virtual memory tries to assist.
