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 www.toshiba.com. Then click on Support then mobile computing then Tech Support.
If this links works you can just click it. http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp?nav=Repair
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.

SOURCE: How do I replace the
You should remove the memory cover underneath your laptop first. There are several covers but only one is the correct one.
The modules unclip by way of the clips on the side of the modules.
BEFORE YOU TOUCH THE MODULES ensure that the battery has been removed and you have touched the VGA output socket, to discharge yourself from static, or the modules will possibly get damaged.
Only touch the side ends of the modules, (where the fixing slots are), to avoid damage.
Make sure the replacement module/s are of the same make and type otherwise you may get problems.
I hope this helps.

Plastic Display Bezel is not as simpy as you think. It is made of space-age plastic.
Procedure is the same as for a Satellite M110 series, and M115 series Notebook PC,
Just to add;
After the Screw Covers are removed, and the screws, from the Display Bezel, the Bezel can be 'popped' off.
The Bezel has plastic protrusions, or tabs, extruded from it's plastic frame. These tabs snap into place in the Display Cover. (Top cover of laptop)
There are tabs formed on the inside edge of the Display Cover, that the tabs from the Display Bezel, snap into.
When I started years ago, I used a guitar pick to ease the Bezel up, so I could get my fingertips under it. (OUTSIDE edge of Bezel. Not inside edge where the LCD screen is)
Now I don a set of anti-static gloves, and ease the inside middle edge of the Bezel, (LCD screen side), up. Then I start working towards one corner, until this portion pops free, and then I go towards the other corner.
Once you work a side loose, and the bottom, the rest of the Bezel starts popping free.
Although the Display Bezel looks to be flimsy, as stated previously it is made of a space-age plastic. Pretty tough stuff, really.
Just go slow, and use care.
When you hear the tabs pop up for the first time, you may think you have broken something. Nope.
Just wanted to state to ease your mind.
Make SURE the LCD screen you are purchasing is THE correct one.
An LCD screen, and the screen Inverter, are a MATCHING pair.
Crossover the manufacturer name, and model number on the back of the LCD screen, to the new one.
Or go with the LCD screen replacement manufacturer's information. B
If so, be sure there is a Return option, if the new replacement LCD screen proves to be the wrong one
[ An LCD screen does not produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.
A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp. (Bulb)
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.
(Some of the newer LCD screens use LED lights for a Backlight.
The Toshiba Satellite M105-S3004 Notebook PC, uses a CCFL for a Backlight)
A screen Inverter is used to convert the electricity (Power) from the laptop, for the Backlight, and the LCD screen ]

SOURCE: i would like to boot a toshiba satellite m105-s30401 with an external monitor as the laptop screen is busted and i would like to use an external monitor until i get a replacement screen, how do i get
Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8
