Re: Toshiba portege 4010
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.

Re: Toshiba portege 4010
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!

Note the software you are using like window media center, VLC player, real player and the likes should also be increase to maximum, then if your computer has an external control for the volume, make sure you increase it to the maximum.
HOPE THIS HELPS
go to sound icon in bottom right corner, click on mixer, then there is a sound output screen. I had the same problem on my laptop until i found this screen and turns out my laptop was using 20% of its volume!
If you double click on the speaker icon in the lower right hand, it should bring up the mixer volume menu. Make sure none of the 'mute' buttons are selected. Also check the sliders to full volume or whatever is confortable for you. Good Luck.
If you're using vista go to control panel and click on the sound icon. On the playback tab check whether if the speaker icon has a small green right tick icon adjacent to it. If red cross icon appear instead, click on properties at the bottom and in the speaker properties make sure the device usage box is switch to enable instead of disabling it. This should help i guess..
