Hi Skunner,
That's wonderful! But bragging about a fix that worked for you but not the OP here is hardly productive. If you didn't know that this fix would not work here? then you need to try to get in the practice of reading at least the first post completely. It's not always fesible to ead all of them I realize.

please refer to post #1 (esp. this portion):

-I am unable to go back to a restore point. I tried and it failed twice, now there are no additional restore points.
Thank you

I tried this process (to the best of my ability) to no avail yesterday. I had already downloaded and installed this driver. I just tried again. Looks like no change. When I hover over the x it says "no audio output device is installed". In the sound window there is still the green check next to speakers. This process actually removes the headphones from the list and removes the green circle from the speaker properties>general tab>jack information, fwiw. I didn't mention previously, but itunes leaves an error message when I open it (attached), but will open. When I try to play a song, however, the time bar or whatever doesn't proceed at all like it would if the song were playing.



Again, I really appreciate all the work you are doing for me here! Is there any way installing an older driver the same way would fix it? If so, where would I find one?

Well the version number is identical to the original release of the driver, and you can't go back further than that., IOW it's their only version for that driver. It is normal for this issue to cause problems with any software that plays audio like often mediaplayer will produce an error even if you try to play a movie w/sound, it wont even show the picture. so iTunes is expected to act like that in response to the source of the problem. I noticed you have a rollback option now, and i don't understand why if the two were the same version. I also noticed in your s-caps that device manager has at least 3-4 of the other driver, for HD output. all named the same This is not normal In any of my experience. I just pulled a customers computer that i had backlogged for probably next week (I have like 15 computers backlogged!) because it has exactly the same issue, although its a HP...well Compaq, same company, but it has the same drivers you do. I checked and confirmed only 2 sound drivers that you downloaded and the HD one.maybe look through the properties and see if they all are enabled or what? I'll work on this one and see if I can figure it out - as hands on is so much easier! (plus i get paid - ironically for the easier way) ha

You might also want to try to look through the error logs for anything weird to do with audio devices or a bunch of critical errors might help find something. I'll do what I can by trying this system - i mean it's identical - missing horizontal vol scrollbars, red x speaker icon and hover message. and the same drives so I might do better for the night (here, it midnight, i don't recall your local but I'll be up all night working anyway to play catchup.

well i guess NVIDIA is not HD per se, at least not exclusively

i really dont know what to make of all the drivesrs for NVIDIA HD. I think the one and only ver is 1,0,0,0 but you could try to download it the same was and

just use NVIDIA HD instead of the previous one (not to be mixed up withe the other NVIDIA drivers for your comuter like video

So from the same site, dl the NVIDIA HD Audio Driver and install it via the same process? I'm on it. The four NVIDIA High Definition Audio (drivers? applications?) all seem enabled, but all have the option to update. Should I consider uninstalling the drivers?



Also, mediaplayer video is working fine.

edit: dl'd and installed the NVIDIA HD Audio from toshiba's site. No change. I had also tried this yesterday with no results. Mike: Good luck with that machine. I hope you figure it out before I throw my computer off the balcony.

I really feel like I should be leaving this one to you now Mike.

Just to make a small suggestion though- as I mentioned in earlier post,
there have been noted issues with this model lappy and the original driver
ie: Sound goes up and down, bass bad etc.. is what was reported.

What I'm saying is, if this is still looking like a driver issue and there were probs reported
with the first release, what's to say there isn't a prob with the latest release? I was sort of
alluding to trying to find a mid release driver for this model if that's the way of putting it.

It's just that also as previously mentioned, with an A200 I still have and the webcam driver that wouldn't work, I went back a few releases which I sort of saw as a "mid" release of the driver.

Hope I'm not just getting in the way here?

Allonthebus: If you can find one please let me know. At this point I am thinking of sacrificing a live animal.

Well Cruxone,
I feel your frustration, but in my experience, animal sacrifice is VERRRY rarely an effective fix.

@AllOnTheBus - By all means, this is an open forum, and advice is always welcome from anyone! Any idea where a driver as your describing could be found, as the manufacturer only has one release, it's their most current one, and it was the original factory install version.

I've got a com paq laptop here w/the same issue, and I'm getting rather frustrated myself. Last night I did some poking around, and SF and the web is riddled with the exact same issue, and i have yet to see someone solve it, and reply back as fixed.
