You are missing an audio driver. Go to Toshibas support driver site and put your model number in the search box. when the windown for that model appears scroll down to drivers / software, look for the newest audio driver and just run it from there if it gives you that option. It will self install. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

  1. Verify that the lack of sound is not due to faulty speaker connections. A simple way to test it is to substitute the speaker connection with headphones and see if you get any sound
  2. Open the volume control window by clicking your "Start" button and then "All Programs." Click "Accessories," then "Entertainment," then "Volume Control." Alternatively, just click on the speaker icon that's in your System Tray.
  3. Check the volume and mute settings. If any of the mute check boxes have been checked, uncheck them. If this doesn't work, read on.

  2. Click on your "Start" button. Click on "Control Panel" and then "System." Next, click on "Hardware," then "Device Manager, then "Sound, Video and Game Controllers."
  3. Click on a sound device named in the Device Manager, and then press the Delete key on the keyboard. Click "OK" in the window that appears. Remove all the listed sound devices i this way EXCEPT Audio Codec and Legacy Audio Drivers.
  4. Restart your computer. Reinstall the deleted drivers using the Driver and Application Recovery CDs that came with your Windows XP system.

You would probly want to completely reformat and reinstall your copy of XP, if it is already crashing on a fresh copy, it most likely didn't install correctly. Make sure you format first. You can do this before you run your installation. Reboot your computer and hit f8, select the option that says command prompt with networking. when the screen comes up with the C: type in there vol you will need the volume label to format, it will display this for you and make a note of it. At the next C: type in there C: format it will ask you to enter the volume label, do this and hit enter. It will then ask you if you are sure you want to delete all data, type y and hit enter. It will go through the format process. Enter your XP cd into the drive and reboot your computer, you should now be able to reinstall windows with no previous errors or versions already installed. Hope this helps!

My speakers are not making any sound... I recently reinstalled windows and they doesn't work anymore... How can I make them work? I Have windows xp


I am assuming these are speakers connected to the audio connection of your PC or the USB

Are you sure the audio is not on mute. Look for the speaker icon in the bottom right of your windows screen. If it has a red line across it. Right click the mouse on it and make sure the mute button is unticked in the volume control panel.

Also try to check if the volume levels are ok. In case you have got a separate power adaptor then use it instead of relying on the USB power.

You might find it difficult to get hold of windows XP keys since Microsoft stopped selling it.

usually the sound card are built-in on the mobo(motherboard), try checking the model and brand of the mobo and download the sound/audio drivers of it.

You may want to check device manager and see if the computer detects that there is a audio controller on the system. then install the drivers.

Well, probably they forgot to reinstall audio driver.
Check first that your volume is not at minimum ar audio had been muted, check from 'audio mixer' or from 'control panel/sound, speech.../adjust audio volume'
If volume and mute are ok, download driver from this website and install it again.
You need to select your model, your OS (windows version), and then audio or sound driver download.
Once you download the audio driver (chose save) run the download.
If you do it properly it will work again.

Only getting half the volume


The first things I would check would be the volume control within your operating system. If I assume you have Windows XP, you would go to Start-->All Program-->Accessories-->Entertainment and click "Volume Control". Make sure all of the sliders are at least 1/2 way up. You might also want to check to make sure the cable from the speakers to the computer is plugged into the proper jack (usually the green one), as sometimes computers have jacks for rear speakers, which might make them sound quieter.
