Qosmio F20 - no sound after installing Win XP

Hello everyone,

I need some help here...
I use Toshiba Qosmio F20 and have re-installed with Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2.
All the drivers were all updated and all seems fine. But now there is no sound at all, even when I turn on or increase the volume.

It has nothing to do with enabling / disabling, cause there is no effect.
A few hours earlier, everything was fine. Is it because the qosmio must be installed with XP Media Center Edition?
What should I do then, cause I don't have the recovery disc more?
Where can I find solutions.

Thank you


You need SP3!
This SP3 contains all fixes and updates.

Workaround solution:
Remove/uninstall the audio driver.
Install SP3
Restart the device
Reinstall the audio driver
Reboot the laptop and test again.

    I installed Win XP SP3 on my Tosh laptop.
    I have everything works except the sound.

    We know of a compatible for this model sound card driver in XP.
    I downloaded the bucket full of HD and AC97 Realtek drivers, but none seems not to work.

    I'm really struggling with this one and do not want to go back to Vista.

    Reall any help is appreciated. Robbie.


    I had the same problem with sound after installing XP everything seemed fine but no sound!

    I found a solution;
    You need to install the MS patches; KB835221 and KB888111
    These hotfixes must be installed before installing driver sound!

    But I put t know how it works with SP3. I think that you need to remove the SP3 first and then you could install the patches mentioned.

    However, once the patches have been installed, you must follow with the Realtek HD audio driver installation. The latest driver should be placed also on the Realtek page too.

    Well, in my case it worked so it should work on your laptop too!

  • Satellite A300D - 14 p - no sound after installing Win XP


    I just intalled XP and everything works fine, just a problem with the sound.
    I instaled driver sound and sound is very high up with no bass, I didn't have this problem when I had VIsta or Win 7 installed, it must have something to do with drivers.

    My windows is established to date, have SP3 and everything works perfectly.

    What should I do?

    Thank you!!!



    I had the same problem.
    But I could solve this install Win XP fixes needed.
    You must generally 2 patches:
    AUDIO patch 1: KB835221
    AUDIO patch 2: KB888111

    But these fixes are also part of the SP3.
    So if you have previously installed SP3, you don t need other patches.
    Bu the point is that SP3 must be installed before installing the audio driver.

    If you have already installed the sound driver then delete the system.
    Go to Device Manager, then remove the sound card from the list of devices and all devices high definition.
    Restart the device and then reinstall the audio driver.

    This is beneficial because it has helped me too.

  • Problem of overheating for Qosmio X 770 - 103 after installing Win 8

    Recently updated my material with a series of samsung SSD 840 and installed windows 8 pro (64-bit) (due to business needs).

    After you have installed windows 8 I ran Wizard upgrade toshiba, to get the drivers that I needed, the I updated my nvidia 320.49 drivers.

    The problem is that slow my PC works at 75 to 80 ° c (ambient temperature of 22 ° c), and if I run all the software it gets my temperature up to 85 to 90 on the side CPU on the graphics side card I have mount 74ºC inactive and in a chart driven app it gets 99ºC or 100 ° c and blocking my laptop.

    These temperatures are on average Setup 5 to 10 ° c higher than in my windows 7 (64 bit) and on my win7 the graphics card seems gas low performance in order to keep the time above 90 ° c 85.

    If anyone can help me solve this problem, because I can't understand what is happening or what drivers need to be modified, as appropriate.

    I compared the time using the same software in the two SO

    Current settings
    560 m from NVIDIA
    Intel core i7 2630QM (2.00 GHz)
    SSD - 840 Samsung series 500 GB
    Windows (pro (64-bit)

    Measured using Core temp and the temp software GPU temperatures.

    I n t have this Qosmio model but it will be interesting to know if you have installed the drivers offered on the download page of Toshiba only. I m not sure but I think that nvidia driver is not Toshiba.
    Am I right about that?

    > These temperatures are on average Setup 5 to 10 ° c higher than in my windows 7 (64 bit) and on my win7 seems to graphics card > gas low performance in order to keep the time above 90 ° c 85

    Is that Toshiba drivers are changed and don t allow overheating, but at the same time reduce the performance of the GPU. If you use the Toshiba-no driver, I can imagine that GPU now works without limit, but it results in more heat and better performance of equipment.

  • Satellite Pro A10 PSA15E: NO sound after installing Win XP

    Hello world

    I had to reinstall Win XP Home - which went well, however - now there is no sound and it says no audio device is installed. I tried to install the audio drivers on the Toshiba CD but they go as far as unpacking but then say "not installed" and Setup stops.

    I went to www. support. Toshiba.com and follow the menu to identify which drivers to download? but there are several possibilities for the
    Model A - 10 and I am not sure I have listed below models have.
    A10-S100, A10-S1001, A10-S127, A10-S128, A10-S129, A10-S1291, A10-S167, A10-S169, A10-S1691, A10 S177, A10-S178.

    I would be grateful for your advice.

    Thank you

    What you mean? On the European driver Toshiba page, you will find only one series Satellite Pro A10.
    Once again; Do you have a computer or a Sat Pro A10 laptop satellite A10?

    There is a driver of sound for a portable Pro A10. This is a version of audio driver Analog Devices

  • Satellite U300 - no sound after installing Win XP


    I just reinstalled windows xp Prof today and upgraded to service pack 3.

    Sound has worked well in the first until a reboot, no more noise.
    A few reinstalls the drivers now, sometimes he says its all installed fine, other times it says no audio devices installed.

    In both cases there is no sound...
    Sometime on a restart (many reboots today) the sound suddenly came back to life, to die again at the next reboot...

    Im hoping someone can help me with this problem cos Im leaving on vacation tomorrow and really need my sound ;)

    Thanks in advance!


    You should on Windows XP two audio patches if you have a card high definition audio:

    These updates are in integrated SP3, you must install Service Pack 3 or the updates first, then the audio driver. So in your case, I would like to delete the sound driver, use CCleaner and then install the latest version from the Toshiba site.

    Good luck!

    Hi mate

    Did you install VAP (value added package)?
    If this is not the case, to do this. After that, restart the laptop and check the functionality of the FN button.

    If the FN button would not work, install utility Support Flash Card which you could find in the box driver for other portable computer laptops; for example L500


  • Can satellite A300d-16W - I use HARD drive recovery after installing Win XP?

    I formatted my PC and installed XP. Can I reinstall Vista using HARD drive recovery?

    > I formatted my PC and install XP

    No, you cannot use the recovery HARD drive after installing Win XP because looks like you have formatted the HARD drive and the HARD disk partition has been erased.

    So you need to use the Toshiba Recovery disk that I hope, you created before you formatted the HARD drive.


  • 3110CT no sound after installing XP Pro

    I am a novice when it comes to laptops, so here's the problem: my 3110 ct no sound after installing XP Pro. Had no noise when I bought it with another operating system, the report says no audio devices installed.

    Does this mean that I have to make a chip for laptop or a driver, I need & where can I find the driver or the part for this.

    Help, please.

    Usually, if the audio driver is not installed you will get no sound, but also a yellow exclamation point must appear in Device Manager.

    If the sound card chip is damage, I imagine that you will not be able to see the yellow exclamation point belonging to the sound card in Device Manager.

    You bought this Portege as a second hand unit. Am I wrong?
    So maybe the sound card is faulty.

    The computer uses an ES1978 ESS (Maestro-2E) and sound chip ES1918.
    Check if you can find an audio driver XP in internet.

    It's old model of laptop, and all pilots must work. I'm sure you make a mistake. On this old notebook, you must install Windows XP Home SP1 edition and after doing this install all patches software, driver chipset, driver and driver sound to the less rated. The sound should work fine.
