Bass treble adjustments
I have the Toshiba Satellite C55-A5300.
I'm not sure about before the update,
but after the windows 8.1 update my audio was pretty bad and had no bass
In Control Panel ---> Hardware and Sound I found "Realtek HD Audio Manager" which has a tab named "DTS"
Once I hit the Launch buton I was able to apply settings for headphones and external speakers including bass boost.
My audio is now much better.
Hope this helps.

Screen all in black
It could be several things.
Plug in an external monitor to tell if it's your screen or your video card. If you can get display on a monitor you will need a screen replacement.
Another thing to try is to drain the capacitors. To do this, unplug the laptop and remove the battery. While the battery is removed, hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Put the battery back in and try to turn on the laptop.
It could be your RAM. Try replacing your stick of RAM with a compatible known working stick

L505D. Why won't it boot?
the problem that microsoft didn't mention is that upgrades to win 10 on win 7 causes conflicts and problems
The correct method is to install win 10 as a full OS and there will be no problems
you can download win 7 from the microsoft (genuine ) site and if there is a problem with authentication call microsoft help line
Before you do anything save everything possible to an external hard drive
Talk with an IT expert would be a good idea before doing anything as there may be a way of removing the win 10 upgrade

Windows 7 home edition oa free full download
Unfortunately, Microsoft stopped its free ISO download for Windows 7 from Digital River quite some time ago. There are other places you can get it from, but reliability and safety becomes issues there. Also, you will not have the manufacturer's version with all the drivers and add-ons that came with the machine. You may want to go to the manufacturer's website and see if they offer a recovery disc for purchase for your unit. Many do. For the casual user it is the easiest and safest way to recover when the original media is lost or damaged.
