Hello,

The sound recently went out on my Toshiba Satellite A45-S120. I get no sounds from any source: on startup, in games, etc.

I have tried some obvious things: It is not muted; the volume is up high enough; etc.

Does anyone have any ideas for me to try?

Please let me know what additional information would be helpful.

Thanks!

Have you been to the peer-to-peer notebook forms for Toshibi?

I noted several threads dealing with sound problems there for your model.

Sorry I can't help you more.

Koan,

Thanks so much for your suggestion! I did not know about this other forum.

I was able to find the answer! :thumbsup:

I am quite embarrassed :flowers: as to how simple the answer was, but I will share it with everyone in hopes that it will help others out with the same problem.

In addition to the SOFTWARE audio control, my laptop also has a small HARDWARE audio control. It is a small wheel on the side of the laptop. I must have unknowingly brushed against the wheel and turned the volume down as far as it would go!

All I had to do was turn the wheel back up!

BTW, here's the link that that had the answer:

Thanks again for the suggestion, Koan!

Nice to hear that you found the solution, and thanks for sharing your find with us.

I'm often amazed at the little things that at times stump us.

:thumbsup:
