Satellite L350 - built in microphone does not work after upgrade Win8

Hi people,

I have this problem since I went from Vista to windows 8. my sound card seems to work ok. My webcam works also. I made sure I chose the right microphone on the Panel etc. so theoretically there is no reason why it shouldn't work... but it is not working.

im guessing it has to do with my laptop being old enough, so no compatible drivers? I have a Satellite L350.

What should I do?
falone buy headphones?


I understand that you want to use newer OS on this old piece of hardware, but it can be problematic to use it if certain model of laptop is not fully compatible.

I think you're the first person who reported thereon. Unfortunately, I can't help you with this but if possible ask a friend if you can get outputs audio headphones and test mic ports.
It will be interesting to know if you will be able to use the headset.

Please post comments.

    Exercise the functions mentioned below to adjust the Microphone as default:
    1. Click Start and click on Control Panel.
    2. click on sound, then a new window will open.
    3. in the new windows, click on the 'Registration' tab and right click in the window and click Show disabled devices.

    you have reinstalled the software of the camera (not only the drivers) that controls the special features snapshot-thing like that?

    It should contribute to reinstall everything because vista is confusing every driver/software maximally... :)

  • Satellite U920T - 100 PSUL1E - WIDI does not work after upgrade from 8.1 to win

    Hi people,

    is there someone who has the job of WIDI? AFAIC he had a symbol WIDI in Device Manager @W7, after the W8.1 there is no way to make it work.

    Try to use the Intel driver fails because custom toshiba Driver, the last driver from Toshiba is dated with 28.10.2013 that should be a beginning driver W8.1 or W7.

    Is this something like the functionality of GNSS Broadcom? Build but still not usable?


    According to Toshiba information I found in the bulletin of the technical support document, the Intel Wireless Display are no longer supported on Windows 8.1, but you may be able to connect to the external display wireless, if your computer supports Miracast.

    Here is the link to the doc:

    Important notice for users of Wireless Display (WiDi)

    By the way: the Intel display driver can be installed and updated but you have to do it in the Device Manager. You need to download a zip package containing the only driver files, and then you can update the driver using the procedure in the device manager that allows you to choose the driver folder that contains only files.
