l have downloaded it several time the latest one it shows on control panel but not on device manager, l guess this is not really installed but l keep installing it and restat the laptop after ward , howevernothing happens
the sound work only on my external speaker, but not on the external microphone - micro NOT WORKING AT ALL EITHER

after l installed windows 7 - l got a message on the task bar saying that PCI memory card was not installed l went to toshiba and downloaded the utilityes driver again so PCI memory is installed and nothing wrong shows on device manger this pounds ok

Right click on the speaker icon next to your clock, go to "Playback devices". There you right click on a blank spot in the middle of this window and check the 2 settings that come up. Now you should see all playback devices on your system. There you can make the settings by right clicking > Properties on the device in question.

Hi and welcome

What ever vista driver you used can be used in win 7. it just needs to be installed in "compatibility mode" To do that right click the installer>properties>compatibility check vista.

Let us know if you need help

Specs for the laptop,

Toshiba Canada - mobile computing - past products - satellite discontinued - U300

says it has the Realtek ALC268. You can get the latest Windows 7 driver for it from here,

Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version

P.S. Unless you really like spam, you should remove your email address.

No it isn't Microsoft's responsibility to make sure the hardware works with the OS, it is the hardware manufacturer's responsibility.

Anyway have you ever seen this page,

Windows7. Your PC, simplified.

Might be a good idea to go through the list there and what is in Device Manager, and update any that aren't current.
