it is easy to find whether in your compute has sound card or not... just check backside of the computer... if there is sound port besides default port then . you also can open (unscrew) the computer and can check whether the card is inserted into the soundcard slot or not... easy way
if this didn't work you can follow thee following steps..
Check the front or back of the computer to see if there are audio jacks for speakers, microphone or audio inputs. These plugs are typically in a standard color code of green, pink, and blue. If you can find no plugs available, then it is a good bet that the computer doesn't have a sound card installed.
Step221Open the control panel, Start>Settings>Control Panel. Look for the icon that says "Sound and Audio Devices." Open the icon and look on the "Sounds" tab. The sound device used for audio appears in a box in the upper portion of the screen. There should also be entries in the last three tabs. The last tab is the "Hardware" tab. It will list all the available audio and sound devices on the computer.
Step332Right-click on the "My Computer" icon and select "Properties." Click on the third tab and then select the "Device Manager." The Device Manager shows all the hardware on your computer. It displays any devices it cannot identify under "Other" with a yellow question mark. These may be the sound card. If there is nothing listed under "Sound card" and nothing under "Other", then you don't have a sound card in your computer.
you did the right thing by going to control panel and opening the sounds and audio devices tab. The fact that you said that everything is dulled out or frozen leads me to beleive that it's the sound driver. Sometimes they get damaged from third party software. So go to my computer, C: drive, open the windows folder. Now click on a folder that says drivers. Inside that folder you should have a file or folder that has your sound driver to install. That's the easy way.
#2 also easy. Go to toshiba.com support and downloads type in your make and model and you should get a list of your drivers. select the audio driver and download it and install. Sounds easy right!!
#3. Not that easy. right click on my computer, go down to properties and then click on the hardware tab. Now click on device manager. Here is a list of all the hardware in your computer. If it has a yellow exclamation mark next to it, then windows does not recognize it! So look for sound video game controllers or multimedia in the list. This is where the drivers for all of your sound is. Click the + sign next to them. This should give you a list of audio drivers if present. If you see a yellow question mark next to them then you must reinstall your drivers by right clicking on the question mark and choosing to update driver. this should bring you to the hardware update wizard. Select not this time and then next. now choose install the software automatically and then click next. If windows has a driver for your sound card stored internally it will now reinstall it Hope I helped you out somewhere.
If none of the above solutions work then it might be a hardware issue. It also might be disabled in the bios. Good luck
you have to download the sound drivers and install the software..can't give you the exact driver as haven't specified much about your PC. still try to download one of the common driver like realtek- Ac97... from the following URL .. http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=23&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false
or try to download other audio drivers and install it...your problem would be fixed.
