My Laptop Speakers Are Not Working Anymore, Wat Should I Do?

Hi Folks,

I need your help.

I bought a Brand New Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop last year and everything was intact but rite now, when i play movies or an audio cd, i don't get any sound from the laptop speakers but i can use an headphone but still, i want the laptop speakers to work, i have checked every thing regarding the audio and i think it is an internal fault.

How do i get it repaired

I need your help on that.

right click on your speaker icon, play back device, playback, check to make sure you"ve got a green tick beside the speaker click on it properties, enhancements make sure all the box are unticked. if there's no green tick beside the speaker then you need to reinstall your sound driver

tell me something first;

if you use earphones or plug in external speakers do

you hear any sound? if yes then you definitely have a hardware

problem else the problem may or may not be hardware related.

if you try to play music do you get an error or warning message?

if so then your problem is probably software related.

Go to the website of that system and download the latest Audio driver there. In that website you will be asked to provide your model and also the number then they will provide you with the available audio drivers.

Hope you enjoy this piece of info.

GUys, there are two simple fix to all your speaker problems, first, Unscrew your laptop, test your speakers to see if its physicaly dammaged,just to see if its working now if its wokring, that means

you might have a device conlflict, if this is not in the case(check in Device management to see first)

now  if you look behing your laptop, there should be a Model number or a service number, copy this and go to the manufacturer's website, go to their device drivers menu put in the model number and download and install all the sound drivers,

Hope these helps.

If you have a network then you can do it the way I do mine. I just copy my files to another machine. If you can do this, then you dont need to burn CDs other than that, I dont know any other cost effective way.

Something just occurred to me, am going to send you a pm now.

If yu can lay your hands on any Live CD of any linux distro, you can use it to test your laptop to be sure the hardware is okay.

If you have a CDR/W drive, insert a blank CD or DVD, open your favourite CD burner software, select your documents and other files, burn them to CD.

Now if anything happens to your laptop nad you need to re-install, you have your documents on a CD or DVD.

Oh and yes, you might try system restore but keep in mind that most times, system restore will tell you it cant go back to the previous state.

No. System Restore is not the same as backup but, they are cousins.

If you choose to restore your system, you don't need to back up at this time you can always do that later. By doing System Restore, you will be goin back in time but, if you've decided to format (which i strongly disapprove until you find out that System Restore couldn't fix the problem). Reason: If you format and find out that the problem is hardware based, you would've wasted your time and you gon have to reinstall all the software you have previously. And i'm sure you don't have some of those Cd's/DVD anymore.

I don't like typing so, i will give you the links.

System Restore. Explore more.

This will explain how to backup your data or you can explore more here.

If you need more help, don't hesitate to ask. We all wan see you happy.

That happened to me not too long ago. I have an HP Z something or other & it's 3 and half yrs old. (kinda old for a laptop). Anyhow, not too long ago my speakers weren't working. I called HP Tech Support and they wouldn't help me b/c my warranty or whatever was up. But I remembered the guy saying "It might be a hardware problem" b/c of my laptop's age. But also it might be a "software problem gone arie". He said that if I had recently installed a program it might be messing w/ my speakers. Oh my particular problem was that I could not control my speakers or volume using only my keyboard and the Fn key as I had previously. So anyhow, I uninstalled the last (most recent) program, let my laptop rest and then later everything was fine again.

Hope this helps.

Before you format the system, do a System Restore (thats, if you're using XP). Restore to the point (date) when the problem occurred. If its a software problem, that will(?) fix it. For hardware, you will have to go a different route. To perform System Restore:

click Start--->(all)Program--->Accessories-->System Tools--->System Restore then follow the screen.

If you still have the problem, lets know and don't forget to post your OS type.

I dont support going down this route myself. Did you install any new hardware or software? Can you go into your laptop's Bios and check that the speaker are not muted in the Bios? I dont know how to get into the Bios in toshiba but in IBM you have to hold down the F1 button while starting the notebook up.

If all that is okay, then if you have your restoration CD, back up your stuff and restore the laptop to factory settings( Note, this will delete and format your hard disk so you need to back up all your stuff.) This should restore your speakers, if not, its a hardware fault.

I have checked all that and they are all intact, it is not muted, thanx.

I am scared to take it to the Computer Village, they might tamper with something else in the lappy or probably remove something from it and put an old one or it could get stolen from me at the Village, i learnt they steal a lot in the Village
