No sound from laptop (toshiba satellite)

I have no sound coming from the laptop but it says all speakers are working normally.  I have no sound when  earphones are plugged in either

Hi,

 

 

 You might be needing to reinstall the soundcard driver. May we know the model of your laptop ?

Hi,

 

 

 Ex. of a model number is this -> A205-S4537

 

 

But anyways, most of this model uses Realtek Soundcard. Try installing this -> Realtek Audio Driver for Windows Vista

Re: No sound from laptop (toshiba satellite)

would this cause it not to have sound through earphones either?

Have you checked the volume thumbwheel on the front of the notebook?

Have you verified that the sound is not muted  and the volume control is all the way up ?  Try to hook up an external speaker  or another headset .

I do not have an external speaker sorry.  But it acts like it is muted but it is not the only sound i get is a pop sound when the computer first starts up or when it tries to play sound sometimes

When was the last time that you were able to hear sound properly on the system ? You might consider in running a system restore first.

 

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tooks > System Restore.

Re: No sound from laptop (toshiba satellite)

I am having similar problems. I do have sound but very low sound. Nothing is muted, and volume all the way up. Does anyone have any suggestions? If I buy external speakers will this fix the problem if there is an internal problem?
