Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S4034 Notebook

CD/DVD and Sound problem

Have a Toshiba laptop A105-S4034 and originally had problems with the CD/DVD player not being recognized but shows in My Computer. Now I am getting no sound from internal/external speakers. I tried deleting all drivers, which had yellow circles and exclaimation marks, and still have the yellow marks on drivers after reboot. Does one have anything to do with the other? I am more concerned about the lack of sound than the dead CD/DVD. I checked in BIOS and there is nothing to activate regarding the CD/DVD or sound. I have Phoneix BIOS. I have Realtek software drivers that I have downloaded several times. Is the sound card seperate from the mother board or attached? What is my next move? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    As I said in my post, I am having problems with CD/DVD being operable. Explorer sees the drive but keeps asking me to put in a disk when one is already there.Ultimately an error message appears stating" The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error" I have updated those drivers several times. As I said in my post, I can do without the CD/DVD not working but not without sound. The only way to use the restore disk is if the CD/DVD is working properly, which it is not. I have tried to repair/reinstall the operating system using an external HD but cannot configure BIOS to recognize it during a boot initialization. The computer is only a year and a half old but out of warranty. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I had to create a new account because the site would not let me in otherwise. I am the poster of the original problem. I have a PC and not a MAC. I have deleted all the sound drivers and rebooted only to have all the sound driver icons have yellow icons with exclaimation marks next to them. I am hoping that the problem is a software problem and not a sound card issue. When first purchased the sound was very good but as time went by there were small glitches in the sound. Then the CD/DVD player stopped working. I considered reinstalling the OS but I need the CD player to work, which it does not. I tried installing the OS using an external HD but I could not configure the BIOS to start booting from an External HD. I have Relteck software but not sure if the Toshiba A105 has the sound card built into the motherboard or not. I can do without the CD/DVD player but not without sound. I have Phoenix BIOS and updated that around the same time the CD/DVD went south. I don't want to say that one caused the other but I don't know. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I really have to get the sound back on the machine. I will continue to try to get it running. Thanks

Did your computer come with a restore disc? I find that a crupt c:file can reek havoc on any computer. If you do have a restore program disc. All c;files MUST BE SAVED TO A data DVD-RW discs that will hold all your files. Windows is notorious of self deleting start up files.

The first thing I would check is the speaker / headphone jack. These input jacks fail all the time and can effet your internal speakers. THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE PROBLEM>

Your computer is trying to boot up when your memory card is installed. The memory card doesn't have an operating system therefore the computer cannot boot . You can disable all of your bios. options except for the hard drive in your bios settings which you access right after you start the computer . You'll find it by using the arrow keys and selecting boat device options in the bios settings .
