Speakers feedback I bought a new toshiba satellite laptop a few months ago and now the speakers give me loud feedback if they go above 40 volume and there is a terrible feedback everytime windows does an action even when booting up and shutting down. It also does the same thing if I move the screen on the laptop and it echoes if I tap on the outer cover of the screen. The people in the shop think its a problem with windows because it didnt do it in safe mode but the speakers werent in use then so Im not convinced. They want to do a reformat and system restore tomorrow and think this will fix it. What do you think?

    OK. So what is the solution? It wasn't doing it before. Do I need to send it back to the manufacturers and get a new one? Or should I do what the people in the shop want to do? Thanks

    Thanks for your help. Will take it to shop today amd hopefully that will work. But I noticed that when I was wearing headphones the problem doesnt occur - does this mean it is a hardware problem?

The reason why sound does not work in safe mode is because the sound drivers are disabled, so you will not hear any sound from the speakers.

The feed back problem could be caused by a damage in the sound drivers.
Device drivers, like the sound and display enable your computer hardware devices to work on the computer.
They act as an interface with the operating system, enabling the devices to communicate with the computer.

You can try by reinstalling the audio drivers for your sound card.
If this does not work, then the system might have to be refreshed by reformatting your computer.
How ever, all your data in your system partition will be lost during this process, so it is important to back it up in external storage devices, like DVDs or external hard disks, or if your hard disk is partitioned, you can transfer the data to your other partition.

Thank you for using Fixya,

    you can start by taking it to the shop and do a reformat, then the audio drivers will be reinstalled.

    If this doesnt solve your problem, then you might have to send it back if you have a waranty.

    Thank you,

    I do not think its the hardware, i still believe that it is the audio driver.
    But, if they format your computer and install a new audio driver, i believe the problem will be gone.

    Thank you,



I had the same problem with my new Toshiba laptop, the speakers would make a crackling sound when I shut the computer down or played music at a higher volume. I had another old time tech look at it and he told me it did that because of the poor metal insulated shielding Toshiba used around the speakers. Just like an electric guitar's pots and pickups, if the shielding is not correct it will cause other noises that are beyond the users control

Microphone not working

I'm sure it works. Just wear headphones so that you don't get loud feedback from the mic hearing the speakers. Then make sure if there are any physical switches that they are on. Click volume icon click mixer find your mic and uncheck mute

My Toshiba satellite laptop speakers have started issuing a terrible high pitched squeal. The laptop is only a few months old!

open the speaker icon by the clock and check off mute on all mic and line in volume sliders. Its often just the mic giving feedback on the speakers, (if you cannot locate the mic mute box, look for it in the control panel. under audio device properties. if this solves your issue please check off the 5 thumbs up. cheers

Computer beeping loudly

It could be that you have a keyboard malfunction, however it looks like there is a bios update that will eliminate the beep at start up. Go to Toshiba's support site and download the bios update. if that doesn't fix the problem then try a new keyboard. Being only 2 months old it should fall under warranty.
