Well the good news then is that its not a hardware problem, it is most likely one of the issues below:
1- Vista muted the player that you are using: Launch the player and then at the bottom right corner by the time click on the volume control and select mixer. It should list all the programs you have open. In vista you can mute a selected program, make sure all programs are not muted
2- The volume control is turned down on the Toshiba laptop: On Toshiba laptops there is a volume dial control located either on the front or around the sides, make sure that it is not turned down. play a song and try adjusting it both ways
3- Conflict with another Video/Audio Player : Un-install any newly added media software.
First thing to check is to see if sound is muted. Very common on Dell laptop's. Right click on the speaker icon in the task bar (lower right corner of screen) and see if the box to mute is checked. If it is remove the check mark and try the sound now. The other thing is to see if the driver is properly loaded for your sound chip on the motherboard. Go to the Control Panel-System-Hardware-Device Manager and see if the sound device has a yellow exclamation point or a red X. If so then the driver for the sound is not loaded. There are several ways to handle, but while you are in the device page click on the sound device if there and there will be an option to remove the driver or update the driver or install the driver. Select install the driver to see if it is on your system. If it is then the system will find it and install it for you. Last to get the driver go here. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4_1150&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

It could very well be the noisy fan. Try tapping the computer lightly to see if the noise stops or changes to confirm if it indeed is the fan. Or it could be a noisy HDD. There is nothing you can do about a noisy HDD but about a noisy fan you can stop worrying as it will cause no probs as long as it is working, noisily or otherwise. You will have to tolerate it. Sometimes it is the detatchable sides of the computer (you wrote 'computer' in your question). See if the noise stops or lessens when you touch the sides a little harder.
Try to look for the sound icon in your task bar. select properties then try to check options then select all settings that are supposedly running in your system uncheck those settings that are set to mute then adjust the volume lever to higher level.ex. Right Click sound icon,-open volume control, When volume controls appear click on the properties,-then select all settings that you might be using then close the volume control panel. then try to run again. if possible it needs restart to take effect the new settings.
