    well i have this satellite A30, with ac97 audio... and recently i was listening to some tunes, when all of a sudden the sound cut out. i tried everything played with drivers and whatnot. finaly i gave up and did a format and reinstall of windows xp. now everything SEEMS to be working, devmanager and speaker icon on windows task bar.... but absolutly NO sound. either from the speakers, OR when i plug in head phones... please, i need help in a big way. Thanks in advance... The GT Guy.

    This may be a stupid suggestion, but it happened to me when I first got my Toshiba...the sound control off to the side?

    Could be. It definitely sounds like something is amiss. Do you think there is anyway you could have blown the speakers? I don't think that the volume on the laptops usually go too high, but....under the circumstances, something is strange.

    I would imagine you checked the bios setup just to be sure that there is no onboard sound disabled entry there?

    oh, that was a good idea. k, now ive checked the bios.... no options for onboard sound there. no i don't really think the speakers are shot, (but ur right, i think they set them too high as well.) but even if the speakers were shot, head phones should still work.....

    With the speaker icon on the task bar, can you open it and see what the default playback device is set to?

    Also, open up the properties, and be sure there is a check mark in every item, and nothing is muted.

    Well, I'm sorry to say that I have no other conclusion besides the onboard sound being broken somehow :(
