Question about Toshiba P000223420 - SOUND BOARD, FVRSD5
Sound is not coming
heare is full solution of sound and sound card....
First, test your speakers by connecting them to another sound device like CD/DVD player or a similar device. If you can hear sounds from the speakers, they are fine. Next, connect the speakers back to the computer. Make sure that you plug them into the right colored jack at the back. The speaker pin should be plugged into the green jack at the back of the computer.
Now, if you can't see the speaker icon in the system tray, you may need to enable it from the Control Panel. From the Control Panel, double-click "Sound and Audio Devices" and check the box that says "Place volume icon in the taskbar.
Next, run the following command from the Start -> Run box and then press Enter: dxdiag
Click on the Sound tab and you can see the details of your sound card. You can also test your sound card from this tab. Note the name of the sound card driver, on paper. If you can't even see the sound driver name, the driver is not installed or not installed properly.
The easiest thing that you can do now is to do a system restore, using the System Restore utility.
Here's a link about how to use the system restore utility on Windows XP:
Here's a link about how to use system restore from Windows Vista:
If System Restore didn't make the sound work, do the following:
Start the Device Manager (Right-click My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware -> Device Manager) In Device Manager, Click the + sign next to "Sound, video and game controllers". See that the sound driver that you noted above, is listed.
Now, double click the item in that list that has the same name as you saw in dxdiag's sound tab. Does Device Manager say that the device is working properly? If Device Manager says that the audio device is not working properly, or if there is a yellow exclamation mark next to the device, or if it says that the drivers are not installed for this device, install the drivers from the CDs or from the computer manufacturer's website. However, there's an easier way to do this, as given below.
Here's the easy way to get or update your sound drivers:
You could try to use this driver scanning tool, which scans the computer for needed drivers and has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.
You can download this free tool from here: http://xpdrivers.com/index.cfm
or directly from this link: http://xpdrivers.com/download/download.c…
After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.
It's also possible that the drivers are there but the sound card was displaced a bit from it's slot (in case you have a separate sound card on your motherboard, and not a built-in one).
If you suspect this, you should open up the computer and pull out the card. Then, re-insert it firmly into the slot or try another slot if you have another one free. Make sure to tighten the screw to fix the card to the case, and put one there, if it's missing. Here's a youtube video about how to install a sound card:
If none of the above methods worked, pull out your sound card and test it in another computer. You can also try re-installing Windows and lastly try another sound card, if it still fails to work.
