Advanced Port Replicator PA3474E-7-248 poor sound quality on Tecra A7-248


recently, I bought used Replicator Toshiba Advanced Port PA3474E-1PRP, working nice, but the only problem is audio - output when connecting the speakers to the port replicator - speakers of the laptop still works + there is a significant loss in sound quality.

Everyone had the same problem, or maybe there's a sollution for this?
THX in advance

PS my laptop is Tecra A7-248


To me that sounds like this, out on the port replicator doesn t port works properly if connect you directly to the computer laptop, everything works correctly, or can you notice any problems?

Have you tested other speakers?

In this case I would recommend updating the sound card drivers and BIOS. The two you can download on the Toshiba site. > support & downloads > download drivers

  • Tecra M9 longer works with the Advanced Port Replicator III


    I have the Advanced Port Replicator III Plus (PA3474E-1PRP), and it works very well with my M5 (M3 and M200). For example I connect my laptop through it to my monitor/mouse/keyboard/external DVD/hard drives, sound, webcam etc...

    Now, I'm to assess what should I buy as my next laptop and the M9 (PTM91E-03000MEN) seems good.

    Question: * the M9 will work with my plu III advanced port replicator? *

    Otherwise, * y at - it another docking station option that will allow me to connect a M5 and an M9 * please? (of course not at the same time).

    If there is no solution that allows a single docking station for the M5 and M9, then I might as well choose a laptop from another supplier... Main reason to stick to Toshiba all these years is the docking station compatibility that I move older models to the newest...

    All thoughts welcome...

    See you soon

    Tecra M9 and Tecra M5 do not have the same docking connector.
    This means Tecra M5 is the APR III +, Tecra M9 has Express Port Replicator.
    You need the correct docker for each system.

    May it is a solution to be able to use the Toshiba Dynadock. It's USB based:

    I discovered that the Express II port replicator is compatible with the Portege M750.

    I searched a bit on google and found this link to an Advanced Port Replicator III over the datasheet. But it s only in German.

    However, the M750 Poretge is not listed as a unit compatible and taken in charge.

    I visited the area Options & accessories on the European site of Toshiba, and like you said the Portégé R200 is not listed in the list of mobile phones compatible.

  • Need Advanced Port Replicator III drivers for use with my Portege M300


    I have a Portege M300 with an Advanced Port Replicator III. I had to reinstall the operating system and now can not find the drivers for the port replicator.

    Can someone help me? I am running Win XP

    Thank you

  • Tecra M3: Failed to connect to the double monitors w / Advanced Port Replicator III

    I use a Tecra M3 I put it in place for an III Advanced Port Replicator and I can't dual display to work properly. I have a monitor connected to the DVI port and then another connected to the VGA port. It seems that the laptop is the 1 view and can get only one monitor to work. How can I get the two external monitors to work?

    Thank you


    In my opinion, you can use a single external screen because you can choose between analog display, the TV and digital flat screen. As far as I know, you can use the FN + F5 keys to change between display devices and can only be set to an external TV or CRT and LCD monitor internal. But not to external displays.
    In addition, I propose to refer to External monitor in the manual which is preinstalled on this device.

    Good bye

  • Tecra M3 and Advanced Port Replicator III: not recognized as docking station


    Just install my new M3 and Advanced Port Replicator III. Everything works fine, but the Port Replicator is not recognized as a Docking Station (No disconnect in menu button start XP; pressing disconnect button on the Port Replicator itself has no effect either).

    Is TI WHEREAS behavior?
    Thank you in advance.


    You reinstall the unit with the recovery CD?
    As far as I know that the TOSHIBA Mobile Extension3 for Windows XP is responsible for the good condition of the market of the docking station.
    Well, I recommend to reinstall this driver and utility.
    Perhaps the installation of the new driver will solve this problem.

  • Tecra S3 Advanced Port Replicator III more: video output, analog & digital

    I have a Tecra S3 in association with Advanced Port Replicator III.

    Does anyone have an answer?

  • III - issue of serial port Advanced Port Replicator.

    Hi, I have a few apps that do not work with usb to serial adapters. I need to know if the serial port on an advanced port replicator will not work unless the serial port was "integrated" to the computer, as they used to be in older laptops.

    Are the drivers required to make ports to work within windows?

    I have a Tecra M2.

    According to the specification for Tecra M2 Toshiba PA3314E - 1PRP Port Replicator III Advanced is certainly compatible and I guess it should work. Unfortunately, my printer has USB port and I can't test it.
