Toshiba Tecra 9100; "output device error" message

Toshiba Tecra 9100 laptop, no audio. When wave editor app tries to open I get an error message "a device ID has been used that is out of range for your system". Windows Device Manager shows everything working properly, but no apps can connect with sound card. Was working fine until recently, don't know how device ID got changed. How can I correct the device ID? (Windows XP pro.)

Re: Toshiba Tecra 9100; "output device error" message

No sound? The only solution I've found is to get a USB headset like the Logitech USB Headset 20. I have had this same problem with my Tecra 9100 for almost 6 months. I tried on a pair of USB Headset and it works! because it bypasses your internal soundcard. The downside is that if you have a great pair of speakers on your laptop, then it's kind of a waste that you can never use it. But at least, with this, you can now listen to CDs and chat on the internet

I'm using the FA-66 sound card with Ableton Live 8.1.1, and keep getting the message 'Failed to open te audio device' when I try to set my audio preferences. I know that everything works, because usually...

this error is usually shown when starting up an audio app while there's a different one already running... before starting up your AL8, check if no other audio programs are running (players such as WMP, Winamp, VLC, editors like Wavelab, ......)

No Audio device output installed

You must be using windows vista.

this error means you do not have hardware for sound.

if you are having this problem in desktop attach one headphone or speakr and it will work fine.

No audio

Open your computer then boot to safe mode(press F8), go to add/remove programs then uninstall the toshiba audio driver, also check on the Device Manager if it is still there then uninstall it. Reboot the computer to normal mode then install the toshiba audio driver again. Be sure to have the correct driver downloaded.

Tascam midi and audio conflict error

First try turning off the onboard audio device using the BIOS interface. Try pressing f4, f2 or delete key rapidly at the flash screen beginning when you first turn on the computer. Look around in the bios (usually in "integrated periperals" area) and disable any onboard audio options that you see.
-In windows XP you can go to Control panel - Sound Devices and change the "map through" feature, select your default device, and run a hardware test simulation with a microphone for each device. Nice setup btw.

Can't Get To Advanced Options

XP updating to SP1 seems a little odd in february of 2008, why not SP2?

To get into your BIOS you need to hold down escape key as you turn your laptop on and keep it held down until it reports an error, then press F1 to check BIOS. You can actually alter BIOS from within the OS environment with Toshiba laptops through a utility called HWSetup and I suspect that's where your problem lies.

Make sure your audio device is enabled in BIOS and if you need to re-install HWSetup you can find it here:

Hope this helps,

No sound


Pls check in BIOS in advanced options, if the onboard audio is enabled or not. If not, enable it.
Pls check if the windows audio is enabled in services.msc.
If it is listed, make sure tht it is enabled.
If it is already enabled, stop the service and restart it.
If it still doesnt work, then download the driver from the yamaha website and then install it.
