No sound from my Toshiba lap top 2405-S221

I am a senior citizen. I use a 6-year old Toshiba Lap Top model 2405-S221. It works great with windows XP but without sound.

I have tried checking the sound devices in the control panel. Everything seems normal but still no sound. How to fix this? Appreciate your expert advice.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

I seem to remember that this particular model/series has a 'Sound Volume Control Dial' between the indicator lights and the headphone jack. Perhaps it just needs to be adjusted/turned. Of course the you could also verify that the soft controls (Volume Control and Wave) are set to your desired level and not muted. To check, double click on the speaker icon.

Pls post back updates on any developments. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

You may want to go to the "Device Manager" or Sound Devices, find trouble shoot...or some other tab...roll back driver, it may be a bad version of your sound driver

I have a Satellite 2405-S221 and I was wondering if the max memory i can install is 512K, is there a way to update the bios, or ANYTHING to increase that amount to at least 1 gig??


Toshiba Satellite 2405-S221 Laptop takes the PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with 256 MB (removable) of Memory. You can upgrade your Toshiba Satellite 2405-S221 Laptop to up to a maximum of 512 MB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with 256 MB (removable) standard Memory installed.

In short.... yeah, 512k is the max.

Doesn't appear to a bios limitation. It is a hardware issue that is limiting the amount.

Hi there,

There may be a problem concerning drivers for WinXP.
- it seems like that Vista is the supported software, however,
try downloading this update software for your laptop, from HERE:
if this doesn’t work, I´d suggest that you go back to Vista.
