What you'll need to do is identify what kind of sound card is in your laptop. The drivers for the laptop have either been corrupted or deleted by the virus. If you have a brand name laptop it most likely came with a recovery cd. Using this cd and doing a coplete restore of the system should fix your problem, however this will cause your laptop to lose all your custom settings and programs and what not. That's one option. You can probably find out what sound card your computer has by checking with the manufacture website under support. If you can give me the brand and model number of your laptop I can find out what kind of sound card you have, and then I will retrieve the drivers for you and give instructions on how to re-install those drivers. Drivers are software packages that tell your computer how to use hardware devices, in this case your sound card. Do I understand your problem correctly? You have no sound options or speaker icon on your laptops sytem tray down by the clock?

    Do a search for driverguide on your favorite search engine and find the www .com. Then make yourself a free meembership by registering and do a search for equium and it will find many drivers for toshiba equium. Follow the instructions on that website after you find the one that looks to be the one for your model. the model number you provided is not listed but you might be using the manufacturer model number and not the commercial one. Like my Dell XPS sais 410 on the front. Let me know if you need more help.

My speakers stopped working after i got virus and i removed all the virus with my k12 disk they gave me, but my speakers wont work, Help! Please!


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this
right click to install driver also
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have made the correct adjustments there

click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can make adjustments there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
hope this helps
