if it still doesnt work:
your OS might be XP service pack 2, you may need to upgrade to service pack 3 or download realtech software (this is what worked for me, i don't know about Toshiba laptops, mine was an acer) because, some of the new laptop sound systems do not support service pack 2 sound drivers. I had the same problem

It is probably a driver issue. First check the device manager, from the Control Panel. A red triangle with an X or a yellow triangle with an exclamation point indicate that the issue is with the driver. will let you search for your model and download the XP sound driver.

The specific driver may be: (using the Satellite Pro U400-S1001V above)

I hope this helps.

No sound comes out of speakers. need to enable it but can't find where. under sound enhancements, it says the provider is microsoft and that it is disabled. i want to enable it but don't know where to...

Go to device manager. To do it, Right click "my computer" select properties. If you have Vista, click on device manager. but if you have XP, after rightlicking on properties, click on the hardware tab so you can click on device manager.

Look for Sound and video games controller. Right click on the audio driver then uninstall. If you are with vista, DO NOT put a check on delete the drivers. Just uninstall it.

After uninstalling, On device manager, click on action then scan for hardware changes. It will install back the drivers automatically. Then test again your audio. It should be good.

Hope this helps.
