Question about Toshiba Satellite A60 Notebook

1 Answer

No Sound from Toshiba Satellite A60 - PSA60C - WM100E

I own the above laptop and cannot get any sound out of it to run my cds or DVDs. According to the Hardware Manager in the Control Panel, I don't have a sound card installed. There must be one installed and all I need is the right driver to install, correct?

Help pls.

    Sice 2006: Thanks for the info but when I go to the site to look for a driver to download, I found one for my notebook, but should a driver be 22.1MBs?? That seems a bit extreme.

Code 37 on dvd drive


The Code 37 error may occur when the concerned device is not connected to the system correctly and when its driver is faulty. A code 10 error is common when you add or remove USB devices or video & sound cards to and from your PC. When these errors occur, you may receive the error message given below.
Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)
To resolve code 37 errors, first ensure that your device is properly connected to your system. For instance, check all the cables of your printer or check that your sound or video adaptor is properly seated in its slot.
Try to remove and reinstall the device, and run the Add New Hardware Wizard from the Control Panel to see if Windows detects and installs it. If this does not resolve the issue, then update the device driver by performing the following steps:
1. Open Control Panel and select System.
2. In the System Properties dialog box, select Hardware tab, and then click on the Device Manager tab.
3. Scroll down the Device Manager window and identify the faulty hardware from the list.
4. Right-click on the hardware and select Update Driver.
5. Follow the screen instructions to resolve the error.
If these steps do not resolve your error, then the problem might be with your device. Get it checked by an authorized technician.

My dvd r/rw drive does not work. it sounds like it is reading cds and dvds but nothing happens.


try to boot from some bootable cd/dvd (eg. windows cd) to check if it isn't software problem, if it won't boot, try to clean laser lens using small paintbrush and little alcohol. If it is only software problem, go to control panel > system > device manager and uninstall all cd drives and restart computer

Audio hardware


Check in your device manager
For XP, Start/Control panel/Performance Maintance/System/Hardware/Device Manager, go to CD/DVD, click on the + sign for the CD/DVD in question, right mouse the CD/DVD and go to properties, then check to see if this is working properly and also is this device enabled. If all of this is good, try updating the driver for this hardware.
If there is a problem with any of the hardware in device manager there will be flag by the hardware item. It could be that the driver is bad or missing or a variety of things.
If your using Vista go to Start/Control panel/device manager
If you cant find any problems in device manager and cant update the driver then the unit might be bad.
You can check all system drivers by downloading driver detective,
this can be found at http://www.drivershq.com/
Let me know if this helps.
Good luck

After installing hard drive


You shouldn't have to run regedit for this.

I think you're saying it doesn't recognize the DVD player.

I assume you're running XP

First, go to Control Panel/Add New hardware to see if it's recognized. Let it discover new hardware and see if the drive gets recognized.

If not, go to Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager and find the DVD player. Try to Update the drivers. If that doesn't help, select Uninstall, then reboot. Windows should then install the standard drivers, and you're good to go.

My Laptop won't play Cds or Dvds


check in control panel, system device manager to see if the system can see it..if it can, and drivers are ok, then it's the actual device(those are not too sturdy usually).

Laptop CD/DVD drive won't detect CDs but will detect DVDs


sure..go to my computer..and see what disks are there?

if there are none, go to control panel, system device manager, and look at dvd drives and see that there is no marks on it(meaning that it's installed)

if not, remove that drive, click on actions/scan for hardware change, and go

you may need the install vista disk to make that happen, but that's unusual.
