I bought a new Toshiba laptop In September 2007, almost a year ago. From the start, the laptop was moving quite sluggish with the new "Windows Vista". In June 2008, my laptop was giving too much trouble so my friend decided to downgrade it to XP, suggesting that the type of processor I had may not have been as compatible.
After completion of the downgrade, I saw a vast improvement.However, all my music and sound card had gone missing. My friend is out of the country and will not return soon enough.
Can anyone help me? How can I install a sound card for my Toshiba Satellite A135-S4656? Any ideas will be greatly appreciated!!!

Either the battery is bad and not holding a charge, or the laptop's power jack needs to be repaired. Try this check.
Take out the battery and plug in the power adapter. Turn on the laptop and see if it operates normally. Gently wiggle the power plug and see if the power indicator on the computer remains steady. If it does, you should replace the battery. If the power light flickers as you wiggle the plug, the power jack in the computer needs repair.
It's a common problem for the power jack connections on the motherboard to break because the power plug gets flexed. When this happens, power doesn't get in from the charger to run the laptop or charge the battery. These connections can be repaired, but it means taking the computer apart to get the main board out to make the repair. Also, in some cases the board may be damaged by arcing and heating from the bad connections and may not be repairable. Usually resoldering the bad connections fixes the trouble.
A computer service shop could give an estimate for the repair. When I worked at a shop our repair charge was about $75 (I think; it's been over 5 years now). If you have electronic soldering skills and the right tools you could try the repair yourself. Several videos on youtube show the procedure for taking apart the computer to get the board out.

It may not be a video driver problem but rather the software that you are using to watch the DVD. Are you using windows media player and if so what version. Ver. 11 is the latest. Before installing any more drivers. download Power DVD trial version and see if you can play the DVD with it. If you can, your drivers are OK. Come back when you have done this and let me know how you get on.
