Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

1 Answer

I have an A105 Toshiba laptop. The sound stopped working suddenly. I restarted and all was well, then it quit and it now appears to be permanent despite restarts. The sound does not work through head phones either and when audio levels are tested everything checks out despite the lack of sound. Main volume is turned on too. Any help for the computer illiterate?

HI there,

A great number of things may have occurred, but sometimes an update by any program you may have installed can cause conflicts. If this happened very recently, you might try System Restore back to an earlier time and be back to normal. If that's successful, beware of incoming updates which may try to replace themselves and don't allow them before Googleing o your laptop and this particular problem.

At least System Restore can cause you no harm and might fix the problem. So, do me a favor and don't trash my rating with a thumbs down if it doesn't work. Taking you through the entire range of troubleshooting for this problem would be no small task.

Best Wishes

When i start using my laptop , suddenly white screen and forcible shutdown,.


It sounds like it's overheating, make sure the airways are clear of dust and listen for the sound of the fan inside, this could have failed..
if the processor overheats it automatically cuts out and what you describe is exactly that..
good luck !

Hello,

If audio suddenly stopped working, check if it is in mute, then unmute it. If same problem then you may uninstall and reinstall the audio driver that is on the device manager.

here's how

control panel (classic view)/device manager/sound and video game controller/uninstall the high def audio driver and restart the laptop and reinstall.

I have a toshiba satellite a105 - s4034...it quit working so I bought a new battery cause the battery light was flashing....still doesn't work.....battery light flashes 11 times and does nothing...


there is a bios update that resolves the issue. from their support site:

In very rare cases, the battery pack of your PC may stop accepting a charge, i.e., the battery stops working and no longer supplies power to the computer. To minimize the risk of ever experiencing this problem, we strongly recommend that you download and install the latest BIOS by clicking the 'Downloads' link that will appear when you are finished reading Support News

toshiba will also replace your battery if it is found to fail because of the bios issue, download the test utility at the support website http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp

Distorted, scratchy sound with Toshiba Satellite


OK, I would restore or recover the computer to manufacturer's original specifications and automatic update to the latest sp3.

Then, I would reinstall your virus protection and see if it's better.

Toshiba Satellite A105 laptop keeps shutting off for no reason.


I think your fan might be broken....if the fan doesn't cool the pc,the processor or the chipset will automatically shut down the pc to prevent burning hardware.Or your hard drive might keep crashing.Oh yeah and abstract from this i don't recommend ever using mcaffe

Once you unistall it restart the system and windows will find new device and reinstall the device driver. Then check if this fixes the problem. if this dosnt fix the problem try removing the dvd drive from the laptop and reinsert it. Sometimes the connection losses contact with the terminals.
