Sound suddenly stops working on W2K laptop
Posted on 2001-08-09
I just bought a new Toshiba laptop (Satellite 1805-s253) running Windows 2000 Server. After installing everything it all worked fine. Now recently the sound stopped working. I get absolutely no output at all either through the speakers or when I plug in a headphone jack. Some of the things I checked:
1. All volume controls seem to be fine. Nothing is muted anywhere on the system that I can see.
2. I reinstalled the sound driver which I grabbed from the Toshiba website so that shouldn't be the issue.
3. I have Service Pack 2 installed and I am up to date with everything on the Windows Update site.
I can't think of anything that I did between now and when the sound stopped working. I did add memory but for the life of me can't figure out how that would affect the system sound.
I've tried searching here and deja.com and can't turn anything up.
