Toshiba tecra a5 internal speakers broken, i just turned the laptop on one day and no sound came out. truth be it i probably knocked them or something, being a careless fifteen year old. i have no ipod headphones or anything, but would it be worth investing in some to see if sound would work that way?

Yes, it might work. Sometimes the jack in the computer gets slightly strained and fails to make contact, allowing the internal speakers to engage. You can get an inexpensive set of headphones at a Dollar Store or Walmart to try it out. Another option is to try a set of speakers for an older computer, if you have them, or have a friend that has another set.
I found some at a $ store for $1, so it might be worth a try for you.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Yes.. Sound would definitely work with the headphones..

And also, you may be able to fix the internal speakers. they probably arent dead. You probably just need to reload the sound card driver.

To find your audio / sound driver. Go to this link

Enter your Toshiba model number. and when the list of drivers come up.

Find and download the sound card driver.. Then install it. And then restart the computer.. Your sound should work again.

Need to reinstall my machine but don't have product key for laptop toshiba tecra A5


The product key should be on the bottom of your laptop.

For most Toshiba laptops tapping on the "zero" (0) at the toshiba splash screen on start up will start the "factory restore" process.

This process will not work if you have replaced or reformatted your hard drive.
