You did not provide the model number so I can not be 100% positive, but in my experience I have *never* seen a separate sound card in a laptop. I was a Gold Tech support tech for Dell and to the best of my knowledge, all laptops have the sound circuitry integrated on the motherboard.

What I would recommend is to enter the BIOS setup on the laptop (before Windows starts) and disable the integrated sound.

Then you can buy a USB sound card and plug it in to a USB port. There is quite a variety of choices. Search the Internet and choose the one you like best.

Toshiba U305 Realtek sound card problems


About two weeks after I got my new laptop, the sound card started working sporadically. I am sure it is a driver problem because when it works, it works, perfectly. There seems to be some interactionb with USB devices because if I disconnect my optical mouse and external hard drive, Vista will load my Realtek drivers more consistantly but still not flawlessly. There slso seems to be something to do with their load sequence in Startup. This sucker also has a Realtek LAN driver installed and that may be causing part of the problem. The only indication of a problem that Vista reports to me is a flash card problem taht Adobe is working on. No event is listed in Event Manager for the Realteq problem. The only thing I can get from Device Manager is the sound card driver will not load. I am running driver version 6.0.1.5574 from Toshiba. Toshiba Tech Support was no help at all - nothing but a bunch of idiots. I have been in computers since TRSDOS machines - mid 70's. I have also owned 4 Toshiba laptops - all of which are still working. I am running V ista 6001 on this machine with the latest BIOS upgrade friom Toshiba on it. It is one month old, today.

I got a Toshiba laptop satellite C655-05049 and accidentally the headphone port or jack broke , so I'd like to know what my options are to solve this problem , just to get it back new , should I buy the...


They come with 1-Year parts and labor warranty normally, so if you bought it less than a year ago, they might fix it for you! If you got it at Best Buy (for example) recently, take it in and ask.
If the headphone jack is attached to the motherboard then the only solution is to re-solder the jack (or a new jack) to the motherboard, if it has been detached. (I have tripped over a headphone cable once or twice and done this)
Hiring a tech to solder can be expensive and time consuming and it MIGHT be less expensive to replace the motherboard. If you are feeling tech-savvy yourself and know how to solder you may try to attach a new jack, since you know you will have to replace the motherboard anyway.
Unfortunately, your laptop does NOT have expansion slots, so the only way to add an another sound card would be USB external, which is very inconvenient for a laptop.
So YES. All things being equal, a new motherboard is your only option... that being said, attempting to fix the old one can only result in the same solution, at worst.

Yes, the Toshiba Satellite P200 does have a sound card.

Hello i have a tsoshiba tecra laptop and i wanted to find out if i have sound or not and were is it located to see if i need a sound card or not


Hello
Dear Friend...
You can check your Device Manager under My Computer / Right Click / Properties / Hardware Tab / Device Mgr

You need to check the Control Panel / Sound and Audio Devices / Audio Tab / Sound Playback option.....

if it's greyed out then u dont have a Sound card or the card is corrupt....
if no internal sound card is present or if it's not working then u have this alternative....buy a " USB Sound Adaptor" and connect it to the USB port and connect the speaker sound jack to the sound port in this adaptor....u will get back the sound....also keep in mind that u " may " have to disable onboard sound in BIOS, u may also have to make changes in the Control Panel / Sound and Audio Devices / Audio Tab / Sound Playback option... Click the drop down button and select the "USB Audio Devices/Headset"

You can get this in Ebay for $1 to $4 or google it to locate a place near u......

This is the one i am refering to(I bought it in Ebay for 1$)....u can buy something similar also....there are many available, all of them are made in China, as it's USB enabled plug and play, connect it to your PCs USB port....you will not need any software or driver to install it....Winodws will auto install it and show it under the Device Manager / Sound Audio and Games Ctrlr as told above and will also show it under Control Panel / Sound and Audio Devices

If you find this solution useful please leave a feedback and rating to this solution.

Regards....
All the best, my dear friend..9dbeb35.jpg

How can i get the sound back on my laptop it was ok on the old windowsXP pro,but i had to get a genuine windows advantage kit to be legal,now cd and dvd with no sound the laptop is a TOSHIBA sat pro A30...


The sound is not working because your system needs some sound driver files. This is basically some files that help your computer software communicate with the hardware.

i believe you have a toshiba sat pro A300. (DO NOT INSTALL IF YOU HAVE A300D )
the download link for your sound drivers:

IBM T30 Thinkpad sound system failure


Thinkpad is a laptop. Very few laptops have "removable" sound cards. Sorry, but I think that applies to you. After opening many different Thinkpads (and the new Lenovo versions) I have never seen a separate sound card... the sound chip (usually AC97 standard chip, or Intel) is integrated into the motherboard. Newer laptops often have one or two small PCI card slots, but this is usually occupied by WIFI cards. Never seen a PCI sound card for laptop mini PCI slots either. HOWEVER, there is one solution available to you: There are many old PCMCIA cards with full Sound Blaster or AC97 sound, that provide excellent 32-bit digital sound. Search in an old used PC hardware bin, or buy a new one on line by searching for "PCMCIA sound card". Prices are very low. Good luck, let me know if you find one, please.
