SOURCE: hi i have a toshiba

Lets start at the first step here
If you are running any version of windows:
Step 1: in the bottom right corner (near the clock) there is an icon that looks like a speaker. Lets first make sure the sound is up all the way by clicking on the icon once & then turning it up ALSO while you are on that icon make sure the sound isnt muted. there will be a little check box on this sound menu that pops up when you click on the speaker icon (near the clock).

Step 2: assuming the volume is now all the way up and we checked to make sure the volume isnt muted, according to toshiba's website I looked up you model number that you gave me thanks by the way, and they suggest pressing the FN (function) key plus the Esc (escape) key together to make sure the sound isnt disabled or muted.

I am going to leave you two links one to the toshiba user manual for your specific computer, and another for the downloads and support page for your specific laptop, if those obvious things are the problem with the sound there are other things we can do such as updating sound drivers and checking the settings in the control panel to see if some how the sound has been disabled, also we can check the device manager in the control panel to see if we can test the sound card to see if its working. I am hoping the steps i listed above will help. if not please let me know i wil continue on with more touble shooting

This link below is to your user Manual for your Laptop:
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgibin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=1364544&rpn=PSAA5U&modelFilter=A105S2131&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768663&selModel=1364544%7CPSAA5U

This Link is a the Downloads & Drivers page for your laptop which includes many sound drivers.
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=1364544&rpn=PSAA5U&modelFilter=A105-S2131&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768663&selModel=1364544%7CPSAA5U#

If the steps above dont work your sound card may have quit working, a few questions

what operating system are you running such as
windows xp, windows vista, linux, leopard?

also have you ever heard sound from this laptop?

I cant install any programs on my lap top keep getting cant find environment option.i cant open any program as the admin section not opening.im new at this and dont know what to do as i try to reinst


Your question leaves quite a lot of possibilities open.
I would google Avira. Go to their official web site. Drill down to utilities and download the avira rescue iso. After downloading, burn the iso to a cd. Then reboot your system to boot from the cd. Avira runs a non windows operating system so windows viruses cannot affect it. Try to have the internet connected by hard wire, not wifi.

His should get rid of nasties that may be your problem. Hope this works.

MY LAP TOP MESSAGE SAYS... 1782 DISK CONTROLLER


You are getting this mess because the system is not able to detect a boot partition on the hdd or may be it is not able to detect the HDD itself.

Try to remove the HDD(hard disk) and re-seat it, Also make sure that there is no disk in the CD drive (in case the first boot device in the BIOS is set as CD drive).

Go to BIOS by pressing F10 (system setup) and check if the HDD is detected in BIOS.

Try to run a recovery by pressing F11 on first screen after power on.

Please get back for any further assistance.

Thank you for choosing Fixya

I turn on my lap top HP Pavillion 2000 and all i get is the lights on the top of the keyboard and the screen remains BLACK, it was working fine last nite. I dont know what to do.


Hi,
Pull out the battery and try to boot it on AC power only, if it boots up turn it back off reinsert the battery and try to boot again, if it does not boot then they maybe a problem with the battery.

BOOT MGR MISSING!!


if a friend has the xp cd, ask to use it, USE YOUR KEY CODE LOCATED ON A RAINBOW STICKER...usually on bottom of laptops, and back of pc desktops, this is your best bet, make sure your operating system is the one you both are using, ie...xp home edition on your puter, if your friend has professional, your key code wont work....make sure you both use home...or professional...sticker will tell you what your running.....a boot isk pretty much is obsolete with xp, windows 98 used em, me..as well....up to windows 2000, cd needed, downloaded the file really wont do it...i have never had sucess doing it....you can also contact the puter company and like $20.00 they should be able to send you the factory default restore/recovery disks, i am doing that with a friends toshiba now...waiting for the disks...that will be a way better thing tho, you'll have all info and drivers and os for it......good luck...shia

Fujitsu lap top cant find cd rom so i cant load softwear


Go check your BIOS to make sure the cd rom drive is recognized by the system first, as if it is not, you will not be able to use it.
If the cd drive is removable, try removing it and reinstalling it first.
If the drive is recognized press the F12 key to get into the boot selection and choose CD Boot.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.

Trying to install xp on a vista


First, have you deleted Vista, or are you trying a dual boot?

Second, you do not have to disable your HDD or you cannot do the installation!

For a step by step procedure to install XP on a Vista computer (dual boot), please check here:
http://www.syschat.com/dual-boot-vista-xp-vista-already-1946.html
or
http://apcmag.com/how_to_dual_boot_vista_and_xp_with_vista_installed_first__the_stepbystep_guide.htm

I do not recommend removing Vista completely,if that is what your laptop/PC came with, as most components and drivers installed will be Vista specific. If you need to have XP, make sure you have all the drivers for XP first.
