1. Make sure there are no unknown devices in device manager
2. Open Sounds and Audio Devices and under audio Tab make sure it is using the correct default device. (if this screen is greyed out you have a driver issue)
3. On the Volume Tab make sure sound is not muted and volume is turned up
4. Make sure speakers are not faulty

Hi Thanks for your question
You need to get your Audio drivers in order to do this:
1. Put your manufacturers name in google search engine 2. Choose a home page of producer of your laptop 3. Once your in there choose support/download section 4. It should normally take you through the process of finding certain model of device 5. Once you find drivers for your laptop download Audio and install 6. Restart your computer and everything should be back to normal
I hope this helps

If its a driver issue then ofcourse you can do it yourself. Open device manager. Start-> Run type in devmgmt.msc and under sound video and game controllers see if any of the devices have a yellow exclamatory mark next to them. Also let me know whats your OS(XP, Vista, Windows 7?) so that I can get you the driver.

I had vista os before on my toshiba laptop then after formating now i m runingwindows xp sp2 on this system and facing a problem with my inbuilt sound device when i used to play audio or video file the...


This is a generic issue with all Windows OS updates....many of the users are facing this issue....this issue began after an auto update from MS changed many IRQs of Win OS, mainly the Sound and Audio Control system of Windows.
1 - R U facing NO Audio / No Sound issue...?
2 - Is ur Volume Control not responding ?
3 - Is ur Sound and Audio Device in Control Panel Grayed out ?
4 - Do u get a msg "No Active Mixer Devices Installed....when u try to open Volume Ctrl etc etc ?

If ur ans to any one of them is Yes...then u are being spammed by Microsoft....as ur Sound Control IRQ is being frozen by a recent update from Microsoft....

NOTE..THIS…IS…VERY..IMPORTANT...
No file update or any sound driver update can fix it, neither Microsoft is issuing any patch to fix it…or giving any help on this.
Full solution is available in my website (Support page)...it's quite simple process to fix it, and I am not charging any money, just trying to do some service and help everyone affected by this stupidity from Microsoft.

visit my support page.

all the best...i am also a victim of this Microsoft "Mis-adventure'...

I can not play audio files


In the windows media player go to > now playing - more options - devices - speakers then changed the audio device to use your soundcard.

Also, uninstall any other players, they usually interfere with each other.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
