    After installing xp pro sp2 onto Tecra 9100 the audio device is not showing up.
    I have tried allsorts looking on forums and websites.

    I have found drivers on this website but my laptop wont install them.
    Do i need to locate audio device before getting drivers?
    I know this is a very old issue but i have been trying for 12months to no avail.

    Any help appreciated.

    WOW!!!
    You are still using this oldie? Surely itís or it was a nice notebook but maybe itís time for something faster? ;)

    Back to your question;
    On the Toshiba European driver page you can find the Tecra 9100 drivers.
    You have to search in Archive (in product type choose Archive instead of notebook)

    There you will find two sound drivers for Win XP.
    Itís Yamaha sound driver version
    - 5.12.01.3141
    - 6.13.10.2152

    I assume the 6.13.10.2152 is a newest one which is available and I think you should use this one!

    You are right it is old, about 9 years i think? I've been given it to play about with as im starting a pc course. I've tried them drivers but they wont install. Since putting xp pro on the laptop is not recognising any audio device. When it had w98 on the sound worked ok. Do I need to locate the audio device first before getting drivers? I'm new to computers so please be gentle.

    Hi

    Seems the issue is related to Microsoft Win XP SP1 and SP2!!!
    Itís not fully compatible with the Yamaha sound driver and makes troublesÖ

    I found this Toshiba document:

    +The pre-installed Yamaha sound driver AC-XG does not work after installing Windows XP SP2+
    http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB4800RG0002R01.htm


    there you can find a info that yacxg.sys (part of the driver) should be updated/replaced.

    I have installed WXP SP3 on my Tecra 9100 and I was not able to install sound driver due to WXP version (probably because of SP3). So I have installed sound driver from http://www.yamaha.co.jp/english/lsiexp.html and now everything works perfectly.

    Check it out.
