OK ! As far as I can tell, (hopefully) you have installed corrupted audio drivers for the laptop. Its an issue that I have come accross 1 month ago. I fixed it by doing the following...

Installing the latest audio drivers for the downgrade of XP.
Installing the latest audio/video codecs for Windows XP.
Installing the latest Direct X redistribute
Uninstalling the windows update:MSWindowsHighDefinitionAudio

These three (Audio/Video Codecs, Audio Drivers and Direct X) are responsible for "decoding" your Movies and Music. If they are outdated or their host application is corrupt, they can cause sum grief to your multimedia.

Also, a very rare issue could be that you're selected (If you are using Windows Media Player 9-11) the speed settings. It could be that the speed settings are set to low. To troubleshoot this, simply download and install 3party apps like WINAMP (for audio) and VLC / VLan Player (for Video) and open your music or video with either one of the mentioned apps...

    You'll get the latest Codex pack (audio/video) here:

    Now the XP audio drivers is an issue. Download and install this program: Unknown devices: . With that program you can find out which audio drivers your machine needs.After successful driver identification, please feel free to send me the "audio driver vendor" details so that I can find you the download link for the drivers

    Kind Regards,

  • Stefan Groevens Apr 18, 2008

    Please uninstall all the previous audio drivers and codecs and restart your machine. Also, if you have a registry repair tool for windows Vista installed, you could run a repair just after you've restarted before installing these new ones...

    rem: for each download open in seperate window/tab so that you dont have to navigate back...

    Download l8est Vista Codecs from >>>here<<<

    Download l8est Vista Sound drivers for your LT >>>here<<<

    Download l8est Vista DirectX >>>here<<<

    Please let me know if the solution worked or if a link failed...

    Kind Regards,

Downgrade to Windows XP.

Due to the fact of the many people that wish to downgrade to Windows XP, many computer distribution companies keep current driver software that is compatible with the various Windows OSes. I checked the Toshiba website for drivers for the Satallite A205-S5809 and they have drivers for WIndows XP, XP SP2/SP3, Vista 32-bit, and Vista 64-bit. They have all the drivers you should need to make the changeover. I hope this helps.

Seaching for audio driver for toshiba Satellite A205-S5814

Once in a blue moon, the driver that works in Vista will work in XP. Try a forced install. You can also Google the model of the sound card (motherboard if the sound is integrated) and see if there is a XP driver that way. Good luck.
