Just upgraded my Satellite A80-115 from Windows XP home to Windows XP Pro SP2

Download all the drivers for the A80 from the site and install. Everything works except for the audio driver, I have no sound coming from the speakers.

Nothing is cut on the system.

Please help me! 1

Kind regards

Perhaps the solution described in this thread might help:

1. download Microsoft's KB835221 hotfix
2. Remove "Audio device on High Definition Audio Bus"
3. install KB835221
4. reboot the system
5 XP automatically detects devices
6. after that you don't need, but you can install the realtek drivers

  • 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.

  • Qosmio F10-136 - no sound after installing WXP Pro

    I reformatted my hard drive using the recovery CD, after which, I installed Windows XP Pro. Originally, it was Windows Home Edition that was previously installed. Now, the sound is missing and some components more.

    I tried to download the audio drivers from the Web from Toshiba support site but it didn t work. When executing the installation of the software Sound Max of Analog Devices, Inc., a guest of error is displayed "driver not found, please reboot your computer and reinstall again". Can someone help me on this?
    Thank you.

    First of all buddy you need to update the XP to the last State. I mean to install the XP2 and all patches and fixes available!

    Then you must download all the available drivers, tools and utilities for XP and should install it in the right order.

    The right installation order is mentioned in the installation instructions txt file.

  • 30 - Qosmio F-113: no sound after installing WinXP Pro

    I installed Windows XP Professional on my Qosmio F30-113 (preinstalled system is WinXP MCE).
    All devices work properly except for the audio card.
    It not there no sound anywhere, but in Device Manager, it seems, there is no problem with any device.

    I tried to install the audio driver (sound-qf30-xpmce - TOSHIBA-Center download - but after restarting Windows install tells me, that the current system doesn't support driver, which I am trying to install.

    What should I do? Which driver to use?


    It's very strange. As far as I know that the driver can also be used with WXP Home and Pro. There is no difference. You are right on the sound card. Your laptop has an its SigmaTel STAC9200D card and the driver is SigmaTel HD Audio driver V5.10.4946.0.

    I don't know how did you install all the drivers, but I hope that you did this in the order of good facilities. The order of good facilities, you can find after downloading the install Instructions document.

  • Satellite L300 - no sound after installing Win XP

    Hi all

    had to install xp because vista is not good for me. the system does not install sound card drivers, and Device Manager, there is no listed his card.
    I have yellow? marks on "PCI Device" I think it's the soundcard and "network controller".

    I searched this forum and got some results that looked like they can solve the problem, but unfortunately the recommended fix was removed by Microsoft.

    * Before would be to install the audio driver, you must first install the *.

    * KB888111.* and AUDIO KB835221 hotfix
    * Here are the patches from Microsoft. Search the net for download *.

    * After installation, restart the operating system, and then try to reinstall the driver sound again.*

    Microsoft, still have KB888111, but no KB835221, as they claim that it has been proven to fail!

    any ideas?

    very appreciated


    Here is the link to the missing patch.;9494950;/FileInfo.html

    Hope this helps you.

  • 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!

  • Satellite A120: No sound after install Vista


    I was handed a second laptop to work - so not sure if the sound is already working but...

    (1) I installed Vista Business Edition
    (2) no sound through the speakers or headphones
    (3) no error in the Windows Device Manager.

    -Reinstalled the Realtek drivers on the site of pilots tosh
    This is updated from windows
    -During playback of an audio file, that the graphic equalizer appears normally - that is bouncing up and down with the beat

    Now of ideas!

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey Buddy

    I think I know what could be the problem.
    The sound should be set as high as possible before the installation of Vista!

    In addition, you should check if the sound wasn't mute runig the previous operating system.
    This may affect the sound on the new Vista operating system installed!

    I searched a bit on sites Web of Toshiba and the Central knowledge and found this useful article about the problems of sound on Vista OS

    [Its utility to turn Mute Off |]

    I would appreciate any comments from you


  • Satellite A30 - no sound after installing the audio driver

    I've updated the audio driver on my laptop A30 today on the Toshiba site with download of Realtek Semiconductor Corporation, and now the sound does not work. It's my single stereo so I feel really bad. The original driver discs are stored and I'm not very techie so help please...

    Thanks a lot for your time, Phill

    Hi Phill,

    First of all, I would like to check the sound settings in the control panel to make sure that none of them are extinguished, and that "dumb" is not checked. Also check that the volume on the side of your A30 control is enough at full volume.

    In the case where everything is set correctly, I would then reload the driver Realtek of the utility CD and tools of Toshiba. If you do not have access to the CD then you can restore the driver to its original state by selecting the audio device in Device Manager"and roll back driver it.

    If all else fails you should be able to 'restore' your system from the last point before your installation of the new driver restore.

  • Satellite A30 - impossible to get a sound after installing XP

    Am not able to get sound after installing XP. Drivers from the Toshiba web site do not help. Does anyone have an idea on this issue. Thank you


    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.

    If you have laptop model please download the drivers from the EMEA support page

    Good bye

  • Satellite L350D - 12 M PSLE0E - no sound after installing Win XP


    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!
