Toshiba A15-S127 no sound; XP Home

I recently lost sound on my Toshiba Satellite laptop running WinXP. Of course, I've checked all the obvious volume and mute buttons that I can find; Device Manager/Sound, Video and Game Controllers shows no problems or conflicts, and a system restore to a previous date has had no effect. Just prior to loosing sound I was using a microphone to record a website (live); the software was DAK Wave & MP3 Editor (which is a fairly decent little tool).
If I plug headphones into the 3.5mm jack I hear a click, click, click at about 200x/minute; also, my speakers will occasionally make a little "pop" sound. I uninstalled the sound card driver and rebooted; XP recognized the sound card and reinstalled -- still no sound.
Today, I found your (very helpful) site and downloaded the driver for this model that you recommended to another user; still no sound. I installed UniBlue Registry Booster 2 about two weeks prior to this problem (don't know if that matters as everything was working fine just prior to loosing sound).
The Toshiba Help Center troubleshooter was unable to find the problem; do you have any ideas? I would be extremely grateful for any direction you may be able to point me towards. Thanks. I do not have sound coming from my laptop speakers or headset. If the sound card is part of the mother board then I am out $1,000????

If the sound card is part of the motherboard (well it is) you are not out $1000.
Thanks to your new best friends at Creative you can get a pcmcia soundcard that is a million times better then the onboard soundcard anyway for around $80
This is a link to a review for it, but you should be able to pick this up in any half decent PC store. Avoid the major retailers at all costs.. They will sting you in the wallet for the exact same thing. Just make a few phone calls and you will be surprised how the prices will vary.

    Or if your running Vista or want even better sound then give this a look.



    More expensive, but it's the current generation and has excellent sound capabilities.

No sound


Hi

"No sound" issue can be related to several reasons, First try to play an audio and observe if any visually player moves, If yes you need to check all volume control settings, mixer and external physical volume dial. If attempt of playback comes up with error, I strongly recommend reinstall the driver. Please use the manufacturer's driver source. You can obtain the original driver at http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp free of charge

Hope it will help, if you need further assistance please don't hesitate to post more under this thread.
Good Luck

Toshiba A15-S127 no sound; XP Home


It seems logical when we see the things that you have tried. I like to advice you to try use volume dial (physical), Use Ctrl+ESC to mute-unmute main sound channel. 3rd party registry editors are really dangerous for non advanced users. it might cause some severe issues. Since you claim issue happened after installation of the said software, you may use "System Restore" by choosing earlier date that sound worked fine. If issue persists, please post for more assistance. Also you may consider Full System Recovery by using Toshiba Discs.

Good Luck
