    Any help would be appreiciated

    Thank you

    Hi mate

    You installed a wrong driver sound!
    The laptop supports the audio chip Conexant CX20561! It s NOT Realtek but Conexant!

    You must use the Conexant audio driver

    Please see the page of the European driver Toshiba again! The satellite * A300D box contains the correct Conexant audio driver!

  • Satellite L100 113 starts slowly after upgrade memory


    Toshiba Satellite L100 113 PSLA3E-02401JRU starts slowly after upgrade memory with Kingston KTT533D2-512 (512 MB) of memory.
    When I press the 'power' button, it flashes, starts the fans and HARD drive several times. Then it shows BIOS start messages by memory full 768 MB and starts Windows XP without a problem.
    This behavior is noticed only after "shut down."
    It does not happen with "restart".
    What can I do to eliminate this long "attempts" to start my laptop computer?

    Thank you
    Novomir Kovalenko


    This problem appears before upgrade memory?
    Have you used exactly the same memory modules?
    If this isn't the case, then perhaps there are a few compatibility issues.

    Usually, after the insertion of the modules you must enter the BIOS and then save the settings. Please it and eventually the laptop will start without any problems.

  • Cannot get any browser to view a web page.

    Vista problem - dns related navigation

    I am running Vista on a laptop computer with connection mobile broadband and a standard dial-up connection. I connect directly to the internet and have no router or other devices on the network. I'm having a problem getting any browser to operate. IE 9 says that it cannot display the web page, and Chrome gives me a dns error message. I can ping to a numeric ip address, but I can't ping an address like

    What I tried:

    I ran two different anti-virus programs to check the virus. None have been found.

    I reset IE 9.

    Checked to see if the connection has been put in place in order to get the dns settings automatically and when this does not work, I tried to manually enter the IP addresses of known dns servers. It didn't work either so I went back to the automatic selection.

    I have disabled all programs to determine if there was a conflict from starting.

    I emptied the dns cache and reset winsock.

    I have reset TCP/IP according to the instructions I found on this site.

    I removed all anti-virus programs, thinking we could have a hidden firewall that was blocking me.

    None of this solves the problem. I ran ipconfig/all and there's ip address for dns servers.

    I'm puzzled. This problem occurred when I installed a program to dial for my dial-up service. I uninstalled the program, but that has not solved the problem. Another fact that may or may not be relevant, is that I also lost all my printing capabilities (no printer approved and it will not let me install a).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated because my computer is now almost useless.

    Edit: I use the same ISP of this post (on another computer) so I know that the problem is not at the isp. I would also add that Windows diagnostics are not useful. He just tells me to connect a LAN cable. I would also add that I can actually use Skype so I know that I connect to the internet ok. nslookup works.

  • Laptop: cannot hear any sound from my computer

    My sound does not work in Windows 10. No sound at all from YouTube videos, music and media players, Windows system sounds, etc.

    The first step in troubleshooting I recommend is the easiest: restart your computer. Sometimes a single application can take control of your audio device and do not let all the other apps use, but you can release this control by restarting.

    Here are a few others not you can try:

    • Run the audio troubleshooting tool in Windows
    • Try to connect headphones or a pair of external speakers
    • Set the default audio device to make sure that your computer sends the audio output of the device
    • If your computer comes with 10 Windows installed, you can restore the driver of its origin in the HP Recovery Manager, or to update the driver through Device Manager
    • If you upgraded your computer to Windows 10, you can update the audio driver in Device Manager
    • Reset your laptop

    These solutions and much more are explained in detail in this document: laptops HP - no noise or distortion of the sound from the speakers.

  • Cannot get the sound to play when the pre-recorded videos on Webex access

    Original title: audio playback

    I have a HP Pavilion pc with windows 7. I can't get the sound to play when the pre-recorded videos on Webex access.  I checked all the settings and the sound works well when listening to music or playing games. There is a sound icon above the keyboard that looks like it is not if this could be the problem? If yes how to do it turn on?

    Hi Robin,

    1. it worked before?

    2. are you aware of changes to the computer before the show?

    3. you use WebEx with product Cisco meeting place or alone?

    4. how to access pre-recorded videos on WebEx?

    Because the sound works properly with another application, it seems that you may need to change some settings in WebEx. You can contact WebEx support for assistance:

    Hope this information helps.
