I've tried everything to fix the scratchy distorted sound coming out of my speakers- I've checked to make sure I'm running the latest components, adjusted the master volume, gone into the device manger to make sure everything is connected, even unplugged my wacom mouse tablet to see if it's causing interference, and nothing so far has fixed this problem.
I have no idea why it's happening, and it all started shortly after I had the geek squad de-virus my computer. They installed a new antivirus software and all I can think of is that it might be interfering somehow. If that's the case, can you please help me figure out how to fix it?
On my laptop, i had the same problem, but instead of uninstalling since i didnt have the things needed i went to control panel (if u are using xp) and sort of played with the speaker control. After a couple switching from desktop speakers to laptop speakers mono it worked again. I have no idea what i did. >.>
First thing to do plug in a headset if you have one and check to see if sound comes out . If you have sound then the problem is the driver for the audio. Try uninstalling and reinstall the drivers in device manager. If that doesnt work. Use the Toshiba device driver cd and completely uninstall and reinstall the audio drivers.

Hello there, go to the menu and write down sound, look for the sound folder then open it.Right click the speakers that you are using, goto levels then click on the balance button, make sure that there both in the middle of the bars, then press apply, then ok. Hope this helped.
i think you're driver did not do the right setting for you. try searching drivers from this site http://www.rudytarigan.com/laptop/toshiba-satellite-l310-drivers.htm or search realtex HD manager. They will do all the work for you
sorry for the late reply. im using windows. im quite sure that there's no virus involved with the distortion of my sound. this is what happened.
1. im surfing the net while listening to music(full volume) 2.)then suddenly the sound gets a bit distorted(jumps,skips) 3.)then everything hangs up which forced me to reboot 4.)the windows loading screen became too long(like 5mins) before it takes me to the main desktop(start up programs loads like 48 years also). 5.)when i play music ,the sound is very much(like alien,"rrrrrrr")
i tried reinstalling the drivers but nothing was fixed. i've even tried Regcure.
i just formatted my notebook and voila its back to normal. i dunno but i think playing loud music using laptop, or in my case notebook speakers would cause this problem. im using external speakers now and i've got no problems. i just hope that there would be a fix to this problem so that i wont have to reformat if the problem occurs again
This could be a couple of Things.
First if it,s DVD Player related. it could be that The DVD Player, needs the laser Head Cleaning. Any dust-grease or similar on the Laser head, will cause Distortion. The second option is the DVD Player itself. Some DVDs are removable Drives. with An eject Rom button underneath the Laptop. This will enable you to remove. Check the drives connection Pins At the rear of the Drive. ** Clean with a Bud/Swab moistened in lighter fluid/Meths** replace the Drive.
The other possible problem would be with your Laptops Sound Card/ Board if Fitted.
Finally The problem could be related to a motherboard Fault i.e Bad earth or other internal Component Fault.
Go simplist first ( clean the DVDs Laser Head.
Then Remove the actual DVD Drive if Possible. ** Check Connections At rear** Ensure that the drive has not been dislodged from its connector to laptop mainboard.
hi, first check the speakers if they r bad, u can do this by connecting external headphones, if it still sounds the same, then the probs is with ur sound card, uninstall it and install it back, let me know
