Question about Toshiba Dynadock Port Replicator, Docking Station

2 Answers

No sound coming through Toshiba Dynadock station

I have a Toshiba Satellite M105-S3004 machine that is running Windows XP. I have it hooked up to a Toshiba Dynadock, which has been working fine for several weeks. For the past couple of days, however, the audio from my computer will not go through the Dynadock to my desktop speakers. The sound is, instead, coming out of my laptop speakers. What happened?? How do I get the sound re-routed back out the USB port through the Dynadock to my desktop speakers?

    A friend spent a few minutes on this problem and we got all the sounds redirected through my desktop speakers with the single exception of my MSN Live Messenger alert tones. Any idea why those sounds would be routed through my laptop speakers when all other computer sounds are coming through the port replicator and out my desktop speakers, now??

I noticed that Dynadock likes to use the same USB port. Changing USB ports may cause issues.

Also, a workaround is to simply unplug the USB cable from the laptop, wait a minute, then plug it back in. This fixes the sound issue everytime.

Try to plug in the speaker jack to Headphone jack on you laptop not to your docking station. So the desktop speaker is treated as an external average speaker. GoodLuck!

I need a audio card for my toshiba satellite m105

Your Toshiba doesn't have a separate sounds card.These are part of the main motherboard in all laptops regardless of manufacturer.
If your sound card has truly failed then your only option is to replace the main board which is not a cheap thing to do. Usually the lack of sound is going to be from a driver problem or just a setting ie the mute is on.
Depending on when your laptop was built it may have the drivers located in a directory on your C drive. If you open my computer or windows file manager and look you should see a directory called "Drivers". If you don't then we need to get them from Toshiba.
To get to your support page first go to Then click on Support then mobile computing then Tech Support.
If this links works you can just click it.
Click on laptop, then Satellite and then scroll down until you see your M105-S3004 in the right most panel. Click on go. This will now take you to your support page. This has all the information, drivers, software, notices etc for your laptop. It's worth bookmarking this or knowing how to get to it. You can sort by operating system so it will only show drivers for vista or xp or 7 etc. Now click on the downloads tab and then look for the Realtek Audio driver. That is what you want. Download it and save to your desktop (easy to find it then) or run it. After you run it it may need to reboot before you get sound.
If this is being caused a setting then you need to check programs that have sound such as media player. You can also mute the sound by pressing the FN (function) and one of the F keys or escape. You may also be able to mute it by pushing on the volume controls. Anyway these are what you need to look at . The trick is to look at what you have used recently otherwise there can be quite a few to check. I have a file manager I use called Frigate which replaces My Computer. IT has sound controls in it for some reason that will override everything else. Unless I think to look there I can't get my sound to un-mute.
As a side note I had a Tosh A70 and the sound would drop out. Toshiba blamed Microsoft who blamed Toshiba and so on. That was never fixed even with new drivers.

Because the fan doesn't work, your laptop is overheating and going into thermal shutdown. have the fan replaced and the area where it is screwed to cleaned as it harbours dust over time preventing adequate cooling.

I would like to reset the bios password on a Toshiba Satellite M105-S3004

Find your original sales-receipt, and telephone Toshiba,
to show that you have proof-of-ownership.

You cannot "reset" the password -- nor can a thief who has stolen your laptop -- this is for your own protection.

Toshiba Satellite M105-S3041 clock problem

Chances are your CMOS battery is dead, it can be replaced inexpensively if you do it yourself. After taking the laptop apart, locate the battery, it looks like a large watch battery. When you remove it, note the battery type and run to your nearest battery store for a replacement.

Toshiba Satellite M105-S3004 says no operating system found. tried to insert restore disc but it runs for about 20 seconds then turns off.

it sounds like your HDD has suffered a critical error. Go here and download this torrent. This will need to be burned to a disk. now it comes with FreeDos installed. Put the disk in the drive and bootup. use option 5 to repair your HDD. after this finishes try booting your system up.
