Question about Toshiba Satellite U205-S5002 Notebook
No sound. The control panel says I am missing the audio device. I have (had) one. But now it does not work.
I need the Operating System version you are using.
Windows what, and is it 32-bit, or 64-bit?
Going with product problem heading -
Toshiba Satellite U205-S5002 as the product, and using Windows 7, 32-bit as an example,
Click on the Downloads tab.
(Downloads / Support Bulletins / Detailed Specs / etc )
To the right of the bold black subheading -> Refine Search By:
,click on the blue Down Arrow to the right of - All Operating Systems
Click on the O/S you are using. I chose Windows 7 (32-bit).
Now click on the blue Down Arrow to the right of - All Categories
Choose - Sound
There are two files listed;
A) Sound Application
B) Driver Sound
You want the sound driver. (Driver Sound)
Click on the blue title name -
ADI Audio Driver for Windows 7 (32/64) (v6.10.01.6040; 08-28-2009; 5.42M)
Click on Download Now in the red rectangle.
A small window will come up -
Click on Save File.
A small download window will come up.
Allow the file to fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.
If you are not asked to restart your computer, do so.
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Click on Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart
Windows Vista and Windows 7:
Click on the Windows logo button, then the small down arrow to the right of Turn Off, and then on Restart.
Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.
The audio chipset is the device.
O/S wasn't stated.
[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Windoze lost the driver to your audio chipset.
That is, lost the Address to the driver file, on the Harddrive.
Windblows; ya gotta love it!
