Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

2 Answers

Sound Skipping: Over the last week I've noticed that any time I play media on my computer it seems to skip. I thought it was a problem with my media player but I have tried playing media on Winamp, iTunes, Windows Media Player and Media Jukebox and the skipping continues. I'm certain it's not a problem with corrupt files because the skipping also occurs on websites like YouTube. A friend suggested it was a problem with my soundcard or drivers. I troubleshooted/troubleshot/whatev but the computer says all the devices are working properly. I also reinstalled the audio driver but that didn't help either. Is there anything else I can do? ETA: I'm not having any problems with net usage or other programs in terms of speed. In fact, all my media programs seem to be working fine as well. It's just when I play music/video files that I encounter the skipping problem. I hope this makes things a bit clearer.

    I have downloaded and installed the latest version of my driver but it did not resolve the skipping issue.

I found that this problem is actually related to the CPU frequency being dynamically ajusted to decrease power consumption. To prove my point try downloading something like prime95 www.mersenne.org that will load your cpu and keep it close to 100% use. Lower the priority of prime to idle and play your audio file and you should no longer have any skips. The only problem with this solution is that it is power consuming and not environment friendly at all... I'm still looking for a definite fix.

The cd player goes into a "skipping" "playing really fast" mode occasionally. Esp. 3rd track, 1st cd. Always has.


It's having trouble reading the CDs. The thing that reads it could be dirty. But try a different cd. The CD player is getting old and if there is even a small scratch it will be hard to read it. A new CD player would be the way to go

Every record skips in different places


You should look for an anti-skate control on the turntable and adjust that. It will be a question of trial and error with it as there is no fixed rules for these. The weight on the back of the arm should be set to the weight of your cartridge.

Static and skipping


You might need to have it professionally cleaned / diagnosed. The problem might not be a dirty reader, but a misaligned tray. Many trays, over time, become misaligned. Some more than others. Depends on your use and abuse of the unit. The issues generally happen towards the end of the tracks.

Scratchy music


Hey, sorry you havn't received a solution for your m:robe till now, you've probably already fixed the problem. But if not, I'd suggest taking it back to the store that you bought it from, then they can send it back to the 'Customer support centre'. I had the exact problem happen to me and I just had it sent away, it came back fine. Hope that helps:)
