    perhaps the sound driver needs to be updated. Did it work properly before ?

The only way that you can check whether it's a bad sound card or simply a bad set of speakers would be to connect an external speaker on your computer. If the sounds work properly with external speakers then it's just an issue with the internal speakers on your computer. You can then have it fixed.

Toshiba x205-sli1 how many video cards does it take?


In my mind it isn't correct.

SLI = Scalable Link Interface,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scalable_Link_Interface

SLI means to have two, or more, graphics chipsets teaming up on the graphics task.

Two or more graphics chipsets used in an SLI -> CONFIGURATION.

Scroll down, read under -> Caveats

"In an SLI configuration, cards can be of mixed manufacturers, card model names, BIOS revisions or clock speeds.

However, they MUST be of the same GPU series (e.g. 8600, 8800) and GPU model name (e.g. GT, GTS, GTX).

There are rare exceptions for "mixed SLI" configurations on some cards that only have a matching core codename (e.g. G70, G73, G80, etc.), but this is otherwise not possible, and only happens when two matched cards differ only very slightly, -> an example being a -> differing amount of video memory <-, stream processors, or clockspeed.

In THIS case, the -> slower/lesser card <- becomes dominant, and the other card matches."

Meaning if one graphics card has 256MB of graphics memory, and the other graphics card has 512MB of graphics memory; it will operate at the SLOWER graphics card, graphics memory, rate.

In otherwords at the rate of the 256MB graphics memory, graphics card.


The LS-3443P has 512MB of graphics memory,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-Satellite-X205-512M-Video-Graphics-Card-Heatsink-LS-3443P-/370670017623?nma=true&si=1z6WXqlGkouFmRzOMNgmqRW8SK0%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

The LS-3449P has 256MB of graphics memory,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-Satellite-X205-256MB-Video-Card-W-Heatsink-LS-3449P-/130789325867?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item1e73a6bc2b

Point;
Why would a laptop manufacturer go to the trouble of using two MXM style of graphics cards; in an SLI configuration; and use one with 256MB of graphics memory, and one with 512MB of graphics memory; only to have the graphics run at 256MB?

Doesn't seem logical.

Logic TO ME dictates using two ALIKE graphics cards, (MXM)

For me I concur with your thinking, and believe the 256MB unit is wrong.

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-X205/take-apart-laptop-1.htm

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MXM

http://www.toshibadirect.com/td/b2c/unavailable-product.jsp?poid=403632

GeForce 8600M GT uses the Code Name G84, GPU,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_8M_.288xxxM.29_series

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_8_Series#GeForce_8600M_Series

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU


Could I be wrong? YES.
It may be that the two ARE configured to run together, and have a total of 768MB graphics memory.

Again, though, To Me it doesn't follow the Scalable Link Interface, basic technology.

It MAY be that -> BOTH graphics cards need to have the top of the GPU, (Graphics Processing Unit, or simply - graphics chipset), cleaned; and new fresh Thermal Paste PROPERLY applied.

If a Thermal Pad is used, it is carefully peeled off, plus top of GPU, and copper Cooling Tube plate cleaned; and a new piece of Thermal Pad is used, PLUS apply a sparingly amount of new, fresh Thermal Paste.

Also using Anti-Static Precautions, (For everything, of course. Standard procedure), I would use a pencil eraser, and clean the gold plated contact pins of the MXM graphics cards; on BOTH sides. Use compressed air for computers, in the MXM graphics card's slots; on the motherboard.

IF one MXM graphics card is bad, you should be able to remove it, and just use the good one.

Perhaps this was a problem in the past; and whoever had it could only afford the 256MB LS-3449P.

In searching I found one place that wanted $549.00 for the LS-3443P!

Just my thoughts, Michael.

Whenever i put some CD/DVD, it doesn't read at all and I receive this message "Please insert a CD in CD Rom" and there is yellow icon on the device as its drivers are not installed but when i...


Go into Device Manager and remove the optical drive from the list. Restart the computer. It should detect "New Hardware", identify it and install the correct driver.

What's going on: apparently there was a glitch or bug in the Windows 7 upgrade. The DVD drive is misidentified in the Registry as a CD-ROM drive, but it kept the old driver. Of course, Windows 7 thinks a DVD driver is incorrect, so it puts a yellow warning flag on it in Device Manager. It also refuses to acknowledge any disc in there except a CD (stupid computer!). So we need to get the incorrect info out of the registry before Windows will run the optical drive properly.

If Windows 7 gets stubborn about it, turn off the computer, look for the optical drive retaining screw, and take it out and physically remove the optical drive. Now, you should be able to remove the optical drive from the Registry. Restart the computer, double check that the optical drive is gone from Device Manager, then shut it down again. Put the optical drive back in the computer and turn it on. This time it should get everything right.

If you put the old hard drive back in your system and it works fine, log onto Toshiba's web site and download the updated drivers, firmware and BIOS. It is really easy to do.
Try this linkI hope it helps.

the beep codes you are getting are for video but if the system boots and you have video im sure it is something with the ram on the video card. unfortunatly this will require a service from toshiba. these cards are intergrated and will require the motherboard to be replaced.

X205-S7348 HELP


try updating the video card drivers on toshibas website. there are some games that you will not be able to use a high setting on. this system is a good unit but if you wanted better gaming performance would have recommended the x205-sli5 or sli6. the sli systems have two video cards that work together to give you the best possible performance.
