    Hi:

    Just recently for no known reasons I have lost all sound capabilities on
    my Toshiba 1135-S155 laptop. Running Win XP Home Edition SP3 with Avance
    AC97 audio.

    It's not muted and I have all volume turned up.

    Any help will be most appreciated.

    Thanks,

    ColTom2

    Does the sound card appear in Device Manager & is not grayed out ?

    Sometimes Microsoft Update will offer sound card drivers that aren't
    correct for your hardware. If that has happened you can usually roll
    back the driver to a previous version to resolve it. Then run a custom
    scan of Microsoft Update and hide any sound card driver listings from
    being offered.

    Hi:

    No everything in Device Manager is normal and indicating everything
    working properly. I haven't done anything that would have affected Audio
    driver that I know about.

    Just out of the blue no sound.

    Thanks,

    ColTom2

    Have you tried uninstalling the Sound Controller in Device Manager and then
    rebooting the machine to let Windows reinstall it?

    It's a problem with SP3. I have a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4334 with XP Media
    Center 2002 and when I installed SP3 I got BSOD. I paid quite a bit to
    recover my data and bought a larger HD. When I reinstalled everything,
    including SP3, I lost sound on my Realtek High Def. Then the blue screens
    began..so I uninstalled SP3 and everything was back to normal i.e. sound came
    back and blue screens stopped. I've no idea what to do now:(

    Just because things look "normal" in Device Manager doesn't mean you
    have the right driver.

    We can help with ideas (more eyeballs) if you do this:

    Click Start, Run and in the box enter:

    msinfo32

    Click OK, and when the System Summary info appears, click Edit, Select
    All, Copy and then paste the information back here.

    There will be some personal information (like System Name and User
    Name), and whatever appears to be private information to you, just
    delete it from the pasted information.

    This will minimize back and forth Q&A and eliminate guesswork.

    For audio information, expand the Components, click Sound Device,
    click Edit, Select All, Copy and then paste the information back
    here.

    I would figure out what you have right now though, before you just
    start making changes. When you post what you have now we can help
    look to see if it is right for your environment.

    When you know what current the driver is (and make a note of it), you
    can roll back the driver in Device Manager, reboot, see what the old
    version is and see if things work.

    I have a Dell Inspiron 700m laptop that lost the sound which was caused by a
    broken wire from the motherboard through the hinge (cause of the break) into
    the top/monitor where the speakers are located.

    Took it to the shop where the Tech advised me that it was a common problem
    with the model and Dell does not offer a replacement part. The headset jack
    continues to work and that is now the means I now use to listen to sound on
    the laptop.

    Give a headset a try.

    Here is one method to repair the broken speaker wires in the hinge
    area.

    http://www.lukemiller.org/journal/2006/06/broken-speaker-wires-on-dell-700m..html

    I would have tried harder for a fit that does not require dremeling,
    but it looks like a fun project.

    Hi:

    I have had SP3 installed along with all other Windows Updates with no
    problems.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled Audio Driver, but still no sound.

    Many thanks for the suggestion, I passed it on to a friend who also has an
    Inspiron 700m. I don't thinks I'll undertake the fix; lack of courage. :)

    ColTom2,

    I own a Toshiba 2410 SP203 (Pentium IV). In the past I installed SP3
    and got all sort of problems, so I decided to get rid of SP3 for good.
    Since then I never experienced any glitch with my laptop. Besides, I'm
    very very careful with MS updates. In my opinion SP3 and Satellite
    don't like each other.

    Is SP3 included in your original installation CD's or just SP2?
    I suggest you backup your data, reformat and reinstall Windows SP2. If
    still you get no sound then you have a hardware problem.

    BTW, how much memory do you run? If yours run the default 256KB I
    suggest you get much more memory. With less than 1GB the Satellite is a
    crap.

    Hi:

    Operator error! This laptop is one that I only use now for trips and in
    the process of loading it in the carrying case I must have moved the volume
    knob on the bottom side of laptop. I always keep the volume low and
    apparently all that it took was a little bit of movement to turn it
    completely off.

    In looking for the mic connector port is when I saw the knob, which I had
    forgotten about, and once I saw it I immediately knew what the problem was.

    Sorry to have been a bother, but thanks for all the replies!

    WOW - Thanks for this last post on the Toshiba Satellite. I've been using my NB305 Mini-Notebook all summer. Just returned home and am back on the Satellite A105. Didn't have any sound and spent a lot of time surfing the net looking for a solution. I did all the things suggested with no results until this last post. I had forgotten about the volume dial on the outside of the A105 (NB305 has fewer bells and whistles), so when I saw this last post, the light came on. Turned the external volume dial and the problem was solved. So much work for such an easy solution. THANKS for the help.
