Question about Computers & Internet
For my Toshiba laptop that had this error, I had to go to the Toshiba Europe site
In order to find the drivers that would fix this problem.
It seems that there was a Vista (and possibly XP) upgrade that broke a Connexant sound driver. The US/Canandian support sites have an old driver(3.44) while the European site has a brand spanking new driver (188.8.131.52.12.14) that fixed the problem for me. It's even labeled as a "World Wide" driver so I have no idea why the US/Canadian toshiba support sites still have the old one.

you should go to device manager again but this time ask to update the drivers but instead of trusting microsoft to look for the driver, tell it to look in the cdrom that came with the laptop, of course make sure you have it inserted.
When the windows pop up select browse and navigate to the cd/dvd rom and go to drivers/audio and the correct drivers will be there.
alternatively look at the specs of your laptop find out what drivers are needed and visit the manufacturer's site for the audio drivers.
ie. dont trust MS to get the right drivers for you.
