    I bought a 2nd hand Satellite A80 laptop recently and after I've reinstalled Windows XP Pro with SP3 and the audio driver downloaded from Toshiba download center, the sound from the speaker panel is really soft and i mean really really soft until you would think that there is no sound at all. You have to listen very closely next to the speaker and can only hear a very faint hum (2% of the sound) when I tried to play an mp3.

    If I tried with the headphone jack, I can hear the sound although I expected it to be louder.
    The sound is not mute and all sound drivers in the hardware configuration shows the drivers are working fine.

    I've tried uninstalling the driver, reboot the notebook and installed the latest Realtek AC 97 driver downloaded from Realtek, and the problem is still the same.
    I've even tried using Toshiba's recovery disk to restore the entire system back to the Windows Home Edition, still no difference.

    Does anyone know what could be the problem?
    Appreciate the help as I've been trying to fix the problem for 2 days.

    Is there an "SRS" sticker on the laptop?

    I think you may need to install the SRS driver to boost the volume. Have a look on the Toshiba Website in the support/drivers section.

    Or have a look in C:\TOSAPINS\ for the SRS Driver/utility.

    Hi

    In worst case the internal speakers are faulty and must be replaced :(

    But did you try to update the BIOS? Check the Toshiba website for an update.
    Before you start the update you should close all running programs and also your antivirus and firewall software.

    Normally you can change the sound volume in control panel > sound and with the volume control on the front side of the laptop.

    Bye

    Hi Akuma,

    Thanks for your suggestion.
    Yes, the SRS driver was already automatically installed after I've restored the Windows Home Edition from the CD provided. However, it still doesn't solve the problem.

    Hi Lars_3!

    THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!
    Yes, the problem is with the volume control on the front side of the laptop. I didn't realized that there is a volumn control 'hidden' there. It was turned to the most minimum when I checked it. After increasing the volume, the sound works fine now.
    Thank you so much again, so glad that I did not send the laptop to the service center yet. :)
