Satellite A215 no sound after upgrade to Vista o Win XP Pro

Hi all

I bought Toshiba notebook A215 series with Vista for 2 months. I have upgraded to Windows XP pro yesterday, everyhing looks ok but no sound. I checked the management of the material for the sound card, it seems normal.

Someone knows this problem?
Thank you.


I noticed very strange and different problems after downgrade to XP.
And to be honest, the question of his No. is not uncommon.

You know that some series of portable needs a special version of the BIOS after installing Windows XP or Windows Vista. It is important to use the right BIOS!

In addition, you should be sure you used the right and compatible Realtek audio driver.
If you need to download a new one from the Realtek page.

Last but not least you must update the operating system to the State.
To do this, use this MS page:

  • Satellite A200 - 1 GB: after upgrade to Vista Ultimate-> issues


    I upgraded my Vista ultimate laptop, but I found a lot of problem:
    1 - the Fn + F1, F2,... no longer work.
    2 - get a blue screen,

    So I tried to do a clean install of vista ultimate, but I had no more problems!
    for example:
    "When you try to install the utilities equipment & password, I get a message" incorrect series.

    The media player shortcut key do not work
    If I install the toshiba value-added, the Fn + f1, f2... no longer work.
    In addition, no bluetouth software, no card Flash, no test available in the diag...
    and also, the BLUE SCREEN.

    I don't know if anyone can help me and thak you



    already made an update of the BIOS? It would be useful, maybe it s just because the BIOS does not correctly handle the Ultimate. What drivers did you download?

    It s a bit tricky, but I think that if you reinstall, and then put the drivers on it, it should work. Don't forget: Vista Ultimate needs a lot of resources and a bunch of useless stuff that can cause the machine does not properly.

  • No sound after upgrade to Vista on Satellite M55-S139

    I just put a laptop Toshiba Satellite M55-S139. I added a 1 GB RAM and everything seems to work, even the Aero Interface.

    However, I have no sound. Vista indicates that the device is working properly think it works, but I don't hear anything from the speakers or the headphones. I uninstall the program from Toshiba Virtual Sound that Vista has complained that it was not compatible.

    The sound is a "RealTek AC97 Audio". Thanks in advance for any help.

    Maybe the audio driver that is installed on your laptop is not compatible with Vista.

  • Satellite M115 - no sound after upgrading Windows XP to Windows 7

    Hi all

    Recently upgraded my Satellite of Windows XP to Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit. After installation, the high definition Audio Device appears in Device Manager.

    Initially, I had an unknown device listed, but that has been resolved by the installation of the pilot site supervisor password utility from Toshiba. Since then, I have experimented with a number of audio drivers without result. Does anyone have advice?

    I downloaded the Conextant pilots, who are not out during installation by saying "Driver Installation Failed: could not find the device for this driver." So now, I'm sitting here without any noise. It's sad. Please help and I'll give you points.



    Remove all audio drivers, you have already installed, reboot the laptop and download an audio driver for the Toshiba driver page

  • Chicony Webcam not accessible after upgrade from Vista to Win 7 Home Premium

    I've upgraded or updated for Windows - 7 Edition Home Premium a couple of years on my Toshiba Satellite U305-S7448.  It has built in Chicony Webcam.  The camera used to have a Panel control that opens on the edge of the screen.  Now, no matter where I look at and I went to the Toshiba and Chicony sites to get the drivers I don't find a way to turn on the camera.  If I use Skype, it turns on and works normally for this function.  Recently, I clicked to add a profile picture on Google + and once again the camera came and worked very well.  When I look at the devices and click on the camera it tells me that it works correctly.  What escapes me that I can't use the camera as I could when I had Vista on the laptop originally?

    Thanks for all the advice and assistance to anyone.  I don't know exactly how to use these forums and technology in general.  I just want to know all that, after tripping over the Toshiba support site I finally found the solution to my problem.  There is a download for what they call the Total Value Package I think is the name.  It must be installed before the drivers webcam and then everything works as it did when the laptop was new.  Down load is listed as, util_tvap_TC00214700M, in my folder.
