I have a problem with the sound on a Toshiba Satellite Pro A300. Although all the correct sound drivers are installed, the volume turned up and not muted. The only thing that will play is a small quick time movie saved to the local desktop.

The operating system is Windows XP SP3.
All critical updates and services packs are applied.
The soundcard is a RealTek HD Audio.

Thanks in advance for your help on this matter.

I have checked the configuration and everything is configured as it should be.

The soundcard is a Realtek HD audio. When I check the Realtek audio manager the sound test works. No other sounds work on the laptop at all. This includes windows sounds, youtube, cd's or anything else.

It is an overall problem with the system sound.

As previously mentioned it looks to be configured properly which is most strange. I have also checked for any hardware problems and am confident this is fine.

After saving the file, go to START > RUN > and type 'regedit' and then click OK
In the registry, select FILE > IMPORT and select the "missing.reg" file from your desktop
You should get a confirmation that it was imported successfully.

This is an instant fix ... your speakers should now work for web sounds, no reboot required.

Hope this works for you.
