Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
I installed an off-the-shelf copy of Windows XP Home (SP2) on this computer and applied all MS updates. I obtained drivers from the Toshiba website and applied the latest BIOS update. All driver installs went smoothly except the sound card.
After installing the sound card driver I received an error message on reboot to the effect that HHCTRL.OCX was installed in the wrong memory location. I found a hotfix for this issue on the MS site which resolved the error. Also, KB888111 (UAA support) has been applied to this machine.
Everything seems OK with the software/hardware, no errors detectable, all software behaves properly - but - no sound. No system sounds; no sound during CD playback or MP3 playback etc.
U amy have selected digital out put (ie line out ) as the computers default sound output device . go to sound section in control panel and select ur defaukt out putt device . to say truth many of windows xp updtes cause many problems to drivers of sound cards like wrong memory location etc . to say truth dont update xp . just use normal only install needed companents like mp11 , ie 7 , .net frame work etc
