    no, this pc has a designed for windows xp sticker on it. I've installed all toshiba xp drivers on it. I noticed on the sound device (soundMAX) there is a (code 41) note on the device driver and it says the driver was successfully loaded but can't find the hardware device. I read that a registry error could be to blame but don't know which one to delete. Any clue would be appreciated.

Maybe the laptop you bought was made or design only for windows vista, in that case you have to download all the drivers for windows xp if it is available in the internet.

Laptop headphone port not working


First of all check all driver/software settings, secondly ensure you have the latest driver for your sound device installed. Then proceed with the following:

Have you tried another set of headphones, did they work? Do you get sound from the internal speakers if nothing is plugged into the headphone jack? Do you still get sound from the internal speakers when you plug in your headphones?
If you answered yes to most of, if not all of those questions you are likely to need your jack socket replacing.

If you haven't tried another set of headphones, or other 3.5mm jack audio device, do it and let me know the results.

If the answer is no to any of the other questions please let me know which ones and I will try to offer more advise.

I hooked up my toshiba laptop to my samsung flat screen but the sound is comming from laptop not the TV


If you have a sound output/headphone jack you will need to connect it to your Television as well. If it is already connected go to your taskbar, right click on the speaker icon and click Playback Devices.
Once in the Playback devices menu, you should see one device called Speakers and one called headphones. Make sure headphones are enabled and Speakers are disabled. If you cannot see headphones, try right clicking anywhere in the box and make sure that Show Disabled Devices is enabled.

Headphone Jack is NOT working properly


Check your sound device levels. you may need to enable that headphone port before it is usable. you can do this in the control panel tab. reinstalling your sound drivers wouldn't hurt also.

No sound Toshiba M45-269 laptop


Seems that the drivers for your sound card is not installed. Just update the sound driver. Where did you purchase the product? Where did you download the driver? You could have download a driver for a different OS.

If the excalation mark on your device manager is gone, that should fix the isse.

Hope this helps.

Why our head phones on Computer are not working


Is there a switch to turn on the headphone port? Is there a control on the headphones to adjust the volume (on a volume level on the side of the laptop)? Also, when the headphones are plugged into the laptop, go into your sound settings and turn up the master volume (and wave volume if it is low.. If that works, make sure to turn it back down when disconnecting the headphones).

Also, do the headphones work in another device (stereo, etc..)?

Booting to an external USB drive depends on your BIOS but as far as your monitor goes have you tried plugging an external monitor into the vga port in back yet? It may be that your backlight is non-functional and an external monitor will give you the work-around you need.

BSOD when trying to install Win XP, or boot Win XP from hard drive BSOD screen is as follows: A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor or visit http://www.hardware-update.com for an updated BIOS. If you are unable to obtain an updated BIOS or the latest BIOS supplied by your vendor is not ACPI compliant, you can turn off ACPI mode during text mode setup. To do this, simply press the F7 key when you are prompted to install storage drivers. The system will not notify you that the F7 key was pressed - it will silently disable the ACPI and allow you to continue your installation. Technical information: *** STOP: 0x000000A5 (0x00000011, 0x00000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) Every BSOD I received was this exact code. I ran a RAM test with memtest86+, it showed 0 errors. I tried reinstalling BIOS v 1.1 (supplied by Toshiba) and the first time it did let me boot into the XP Home installed on the system, after which it worked fine. While in xp, I checked device manager to see if the system was ACPI, and it was. I've also tried BIOS v 1.2, the last one supplied by Toshiba, to no avail. I did try pressing F7 during one of the installation attempts, and it hung at "setup is starting windows", I tried pressing F5 during an attempt, and there was only one option besides "other", the typical i486, which I selected, after which it hung at "setup is starting windows". I've flashed BIOS with v 1.2 a few times now, with same BSOD during both xp install attempts and boot attempts. What baffles me is the errors did not show up until I tried to install xp for the first time. Before that the computer booted every time. I've never heard of xp effecting BIOS during install. I have been to the microsoft support page for this BSOD. There are two articles on this specific code that I found, one for a "wake from hibernation" error, and the other for an xp installation error, seems as though the latter applies here. URL below. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314830 I'm fixing this for a friend. I fix computers all the time. This one is getting up there with DELL's laptops. The screen is broken, so I'm using an external monitor. He doesn't want the monitor fixed, so I'm only doing a fresh install + Backup for him. Thank god I already backed up the data. Thank you in advance for your time. (I just got the error again. Gonna try windows 7.)
