Having problems with your Toshiba PC Laptops ?

Problem with the sound

\015 Hi,I have Toshiba Satellite L40 PSL4CE, Pentium Duo Core 1.4 and Windows XP Home.Recently I had crushed it trying to install Intel video-drivers, which appeared not to be applicable to my system (at least 1 GB RAM was required, while I have only 0.9 GB). So I thought of nothing better than to reinstall Windows, trying thereby to keep my documents, mails and programs. I managed to do that, but there is no more music coming out of my Laptop. Only system beeps.DirectX tool says, that there is no audio device attached to my system.Before the crash I used RealTek drivers downloaded from Toshiba site: VIA AC97' and High Definition Audio driver.I tried to reinstall them. No result.Then I tried to install drivers from Microsoft. The same error code 10: This device cannot start.Thus in my Device Manager under Sound, Video & Game controllers I have available only Legacy Audio drivers + Audio codecs. When clicking on Legacy Audio drivers I see that they are working normally, yet the line where one can enable/disable these drivers is empty and not accessible. The window with Properties for these drivers is also empty. The only additional info can be found in Details, which says \\ROOT\\MEDIA\\MM_MSDRV, which is mystery to me.Currently I have downloaded tons of all thinkable updates from Microsoft, except IE8 and ServicePack3, which was installed before the crash, but which I do not want to install as it conflicts with Windows Live Mail as well as with settings for IE8.I suspect that SP3 has some patches for High Definitions drivers, but at least VIA AC97' should work without it, to my opinion.I remember, that when buying this Toshiba 1,5 years ago I also had a lot of problems with all drivers, but I do no longer remember, how I solved it then.\302\240So therefore I have to apply to the real experts.Any hints should play like heavenly music in my soul :-)Thank you in advance.\015

Answers :

Copy: Toshiba Satellite L40 PSL4CE device drivers into google and try to access the toshiba sites driver directory, if you can just download the driver for your original hardware and install it, when you have done this you may be able to bypass the bugs you created when re-installing windows or the video card, if this is so then you wont need to registry edit anything, if it doesn't work then download a registry editing/fixing utility such as vista manager, run it then try to reinstall your respective driver/s again, hope this works for you....;-)
