Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S149 Notebook

1 Answer

No sound I lost my sound completely. I even lost the volume icon on the taskbar. I'm thinking that maybe I need to reinstall a sound driver, but I don't know which one or how to find out. I would like to get my sound back but if it's a hardware problem & the sound card is part of the motherboard, I don't want to spend a lot of money to get a new motherboard.

There is no sound even the volume icon at the bottom of the screen isn't there any more

Press Start, then setting and then go to control panel, where you will find "sound and audio devices" button, click it and see whether the option "Place volume icon in the taskbar". If it is ticked and even then there is no icon of volume in the taskbar, then you have to reinstall the sound driver..

No audio output device

Please reinstall the Audio Driver. Uninstall the Audio Driver from the Device Manager window and then select Scan for hardware changes. The Audio Driver will be reinstalled. If you have downloaded the Updated Audio Driver, then you can directly reinstall it to resolve the issue.

Volume Icon has disappeared.

First, right click on the taskbar and select Properties from the right click menu.

Alternatively, you can go to the Control Panel and type the word 'taskbar' in the search box from the upper-right side. Once the search results are loaded, click on the link that says 'Customize icons on the taskbar'.

The Taskbar and Start Menu Properties window will show up on your screen. Here, go to the tab called Notification Area. In the System icons section check the Volume box and click on OK.

The Volume Mixer icon will now show up in the notification area of your taskbar

I hope that this information was helpful and thank you for contacting the experts.

Sound crashes often, then cannot adjust volume

Sounds like your sound card drivers are corrupted and causing problems with your OS. You may need to either upgrade them or reinstall them.
What OS are u using?

Left click the volume icon in the system tray in windows.

A slider will appear which you can drag up and down to change the volume on the computer.

If the volume icon is not in the system tray, do this:

Go to Start->Control Panel
Pick Sounds and Audio Devices
Open the Volume tab
Tick "Place volume icon in taskbar"

Now you should have an icon in the taskbar.

If you cannot do this, then you do not have the proper sound card drivers installed and you computer will be playing no sound whatsoever, which is unrelated to your question.
