Funny, my new laptop has funny sound issues... any feedback..?

Discussion in 'Laptops' started by vandergriffith, Jun 2, 2006.

  1. I just got a new Toshiba Satellite the one with thumbprint scanner and

    Long story short, I had some issues with wireless because there are
    like 3 programs
    different ones that want to control the wireless so I removed the Intel
    one, left the
    COnfigFree and xp's.

    Now after all the updates and patches, svchost.exe eats lots of memory
    and once I do
    a end task (well wont kill it) CPU goes from 100% to lower...

    Sound comes on an greets, when computer starts, suddenly, I want to
    play a Cd and
    media player says ou.. wait, you don't have a sound device.. but I
    do... so I reboot..

    But before I reboot, that lamo sound comes on from XP, tada... etc.. so
    there is sound.

    Any suggestions? I did check control panel and the device is there..
    I see the audio codecs, conexant high def. audio, legacy audio driver,
    legacy video capture device, media control dev. video codec.. and non
    have a red X or yellow exclamation mark.

    Different activities look for different sound devices. Use the control
    panel, and see which devices are assigned to which activity. An example
    would be when you go to your sound options: and you see that you have
    separate control on: wave, SW Synth, CD Player, Line In. Each can be
    associated with something different. Give us some more detailed
    information. Glad to help if I can. dr.

  3. Ended up killing the svchost.exe or some, that would cause the high CPU
    usage, but that would kill some other service so I ended up recovering
    the factory/defaults from CDs and erase everything, after, uninstall
    all the BS toshiba puts on their laptops, including games, install my
    stuff and after, upgraded/updated the security from microsoft.

    So Far So Good.. no issues...just have to freaking return the rebates
    so I can save like 300 bucks...
