Toshiba laptop speakers

Okay, without knowing the full model number I think this maybe the page your looking for:|PSLB8U

On this page click on downloads, on the operating system pull-down menu choose Windows Vista, then in the pull-down menu next to it choose Sound.

Click on the Realtek audio driver, click on the download button and download the file to the desktop or any other location that you'll remember and then after the download, double-click on the file and let it run to install the software and then you might have to reboot after that.

See if that works, if not then let me know and I"ll help you further, if it works then rate me when you get the change ok?

Let me know how things turn out.

No sign of life in external notebook speakers

  1. If the powerlight is turning on some times and off sometimes, Then it may be a problem with the powersupply connected to the speakers. Check it.
  2. If the speakers are on and are not playing, Then try playing some music through alternate source like ipod,walkman etc.If the speakers are playing with alternate music source, The try reinstalling the audio drivers of your note book.
  3. If not then your speakers might have fried up due to some reason.

No sound from speakers

Believe it or not, not all speaker plugs, even if they are of the same size are NOT made the same.Some times the "male" PLUG pushes into the "female" socket in such a way that it makes NO connection or does not make the right connection causing the headphones not to work.
TEST: play music that u can hear through the internal laptop speakers, and while the music is playing, plug in the headphones.
The internal speakers SHOULD cut out, and under normal conditions the music should pass through the headphones.
If the speakers cut out and the headphones don't work, your plug is damaged.
If the speakers DON'T cut out after u plug in the headphones, your plug is open.
Depending on the audio circuit, your audio amp. inside the laptop is going to get damaged.
It depends on the WAY the audio circuit was made.

My right speaker from my z-2300 stop working.

sounds like a loose connection somewhere inside that particular speaker. You could open it up to check for a loose or separated solder joint. The safe option would be to return to place of purchase and exchange for a new set.
