Satellite C55: microphone does not work with the connected headphones

Hey everybody,

I have a Toshiba Satellite C55. I've seen other forums posted on this topic, but none of the solutions seem to work for me. I tried to uninstall the drivers and restart the computer, and configure the microphone when the headphones are connected.

My microphone (installed on the laptop) works completely fine... until I have plug in my headphones. He stops working, but I can still hear the music or friends through my headphones. They have a regular pair of Sony headphones, not headphones, so they do not have a microphone on them or anything. My microphone has never worked with the headphones plugged in, and the computer is only a few months old. I would really appreciate a clear solution, thank you for taking the time to look!

What Satellite C55 do you have exactly?

This laptop does support that one socket for headset and microphone, or you have two different plugs: one for mic and one for headphones?

Usually, you can check the playback (speakers, headphones) devices and recording devices (microphone and external microphone) in the control panel → sound → playback (or recording) tab

If you need to check if the internal MIC is set as device by default when the headphones are connected.

In the event that the laptop uses the Realtek audio driver
Control Panel → Manager Realtek HD Audio → select Mic tab → click Device avancΘs
Then select option button separate all entries in the independent input devices.
Click OK
Speakers of tray right click (Volume) then the recorders (confirm the microphone is active) → select microphone → click on set default (default device)
Then close

  • Satellite A120: Microphone does not work when the power cable is unplugged

    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro A120, which has just begun to play up...

    I regularly record music of my DJ Mixer in microphone of my laptop entry, recording in Adobe Audition.

    Because the power supply makes a buzzing sound, I can't register with the power cable plugged... If I always record with the unplugged power cable, running off battery.

    I've never had any problems before, but what has caused the problem, I now, was earlier the battery ran out while recording, put the laptop into hibernation mode.

    Since then, I can't register with the power cable disconnected. He recorded only with the cable - which is not a good cause snoring.

    It is not a problem with hearing, because in Windows Vista its implemented the problem proved too. As soon as I unplug the power cable, microphone disappears from view.

    I used to work in IT support, so I'm not a technophobe - but I can't for the life of me works why it would suddenly start to occur, power is not related to the entrance it is micro... !

    One of you lovely people have ideas? I checked power options and the Device Manager to see if theres no hardware issues, but there isn't.

    I also reinstalled my sound card drivers.

    It's strange. I guess you tried a boot cold fresh. Hibernation can sometimes cause problems with the devices.

    Try to update the BIOS.

    If all else fails, you may need to reinstall Windows. (Backup your data and run recovery by holding down the button reset during power on)

  • Satellite P100-257 does not work with the new drive HARD WD SATA II 320 GB

    Please could someone knows how to solve my problem.
    I bought new HARD drive to upgrade my Toshiba Satellite P100-257:
    Western Digital SATA II WD3200AAKS 320 16 MB
    (Originally was installed Toshiba MK6034GSX 60 GB HARD drive)
    When installing Windows XP (from Toshiba disk recovery or all other disks), when the Installer starts copying the files to the temporary directory HDD (after HDD format) encounter a problem like "cannot write files to the HARD drive.
    I tried to format the drive before installation (even to split to 2 smaller logical drives).
    Also I have updated the BIOS at 2009-03-04.
    But nothing changes.
    What is the problem?


    It seems that the HARD drive has been recognized because you can receive the error message about the Master Boot Record.

    I think that there is something wrong with the partitions on the HARD disk.
    I put t know how you formatted the HARD drive, but I think that you must first reinstall the operating system on a partition in order to check the functionality of the HARD drive.

    Once you have started using the Windows XP disk, try to create more than one partition and this format to NTFS. Then follow the installation of the OS!

    It is not easy to say what the problem is here. Have you noticed something strange with LED power control? It is also possible that the electronic power supply do troubled. Try to talk with authorized Toshiba and explain the situation. If you open only one Notepad, uneducated, it may be simply worse.

    Graphics card cannot be updated as on desktop computers. I put t know how it is on this model laptop but the graphics card is fixed on the motherboard and cannot be traded.

  • 128 - GB MicroSD card does not work with the new Clip +.

    My old Clip + (black, 8 GB) was getting very long in the tooth, so I ordered a replacement off Amazon.  As far as I know, it is identical to the old, but a very unpleasant difference is presented - it does not work with the MicroSD card which has been a huge part of why I got a Sansa at all.  He acknowledges, but after a media updated I'm lucky if more than one album appears.  And that's what's so crazy!  You just blow through the update in a few seconds, and when I navigate on the map, there is nothing or a handful of albums random, orphaned.  That's happened?  I updated the new Clip + for the current firmware (as I had done with previous); I made sure to reproduce all the parameters that I would be put in place before--I can't imagine what could be the cause!

    Treats quick closing:

    The card is formatted in FAT32 with the same sector size in storage aboard the player (32 768 bytes).

    A 64 GB card format works even without any problem.

    I tried to update the media in MTP and MSC mode; the problem is the same in both.

    There is ample space for MTABLE. SYS - I have not yet loaded all the music on the Clip + itself.

    Rockbox plays the card without problem, but the sound quality is horrible (at least on this player; I'm sure that other versions sound best), and its interface is a headache.  No thanks.

    HM.  Looks like to run CHKDSK /F on the map the problem resolved!
