Hi Check that the speaker cable is properly inserted into both speaker and laptop all the way in. This happened to me before, I didn't have the cable plugged into the computer all the way in so you could have heard sound but very low. If it still does the same thing, then, check to make sure the Media Player or Realplayer or other music player volumes are all on. Otherwise, check with a known working speaker. Please let me know if still does the same thing.

Have you tried plugging in a regular headphone on the headphone port to see if is a problem with your sound device ot your speakers?? Cause if you plug in a regular headphone and it sounds ok then its a problem with your speakers itself! and if its a problem with your speakers, you might need to get them replaced! When checking your volume make sure the The Main Volume Control is up and the Wave control is high also! Some PC/Laptop control audio independently of the operating system! Like there is a lil volume knob right by the speaker jack or a key combination with the Fn key. Look for speaker control on your keyboard! It will look like speakers with an up arrow or looks like more audio, you'll know when you find it! If those still don't fix your problem there is a possibility its a driver issue! Try to get the latest drivers for your audio device! regards, babb

I installed two 512MB memory sticks in my toshiba Portege 4010 now it just beeps when I turn it on it worked fine with 256 installed in one stick what gives?

Try just one first and if they are not absolutely identical, they will not work. They must have same batch number, same speed and manufacturer.

You need to find the full model number to download the driver, but you can either do it on the laptop or another computer and transfer it to a thumb drive. Should be in an executable file or compressed folder. XP can open both using windows explorer by double-clicking.

Hi there.
Yes some screens are interchangeable between laptops, the best way to find out is take the screen out and take note of the serial number behind the screen and the ribbon cable connectors to see how many pins they have (some laptop screens differ) if the serial numbers correspond and the cable fits then you should be good to go.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
