This all seems over my head. Is all this really the best way to get my sound back working?

I posted the four links for reference, They are all related. The "Windows 7- clean Install" is the simplest descripton of what you need to do. Some of the rest of it is just repeating, you may want to have a print out of it if possible, In case you have a queation that I can't help you with, you'll have something to fall back on.

As to your second question, I was working with you to troubleshoot quite a while back, and you wanted to stop and do a clean install. I honestly can't say if it would have got us anywhere or not.

Ok. Guess it's just a little case of cold feet. Going to give it a go. Fingers crossed!

Ok. I installed it. Good news: Sound works. I also didn't lose my files. The problem now is that I can't find a way to connect to my wireless internet. Wireless is the only internet available in my hotel room, so this is an urgent problem. I am at an internet cafe, but it is closing soon. Bottom right of my screen near the clock, where I would normally be able to connect to a network doesn't have that option. The little wireless icon is nowhere to be seen. HELP!

when you click the icon that looks like a computer monitor with a LAN (Ethernet) cord on it's left-side it should show the available wireless networks. you might want to try this when you get back to the wireless connection area again.

If you cannot do this then right click on the same icon and the network and sharing center should be available where you can set up a connection to the wireless network, the same that you needed to when you first used that wireless network.

(windows help might be able to explain it better since you don't have much time now)


The icon I'm talking about it on the lower right side of the screen, and when you click on and then connect to a wireless network - it should show up as the wireless icon. but you may still need to download more drivers (wireless network driver, etc) before you can get that far

When I click on that icon it does not show available wireless networks. I tried to set up a conection via that route, manually typing in the network name because it obviously isn't showing up anywhere, but that didn't work either. It basically just failed to connect. Perhaps I typed the network name incorrectly? I found somewhere while dicking around tryig to fix it that it said "wireless network not enabled." I can't for the life of me figure out how to enable it though. Am I just missing a driver or something? Do I need to connect to wired internet to get that driver? So frustrated.

Ok. Went to cafe and plugged into wired internet. I then updated my drivers and now everything works.

Couple more things. The first time I tried to install Windows I did it on the E drive. It got almost all the way through, but didn't work. I got it to work (OBV) on the C drive though. Now when I turn on my computer, black screen asks me which OS I would like to boot, Windows 7 or Windows 7. The second one goes into the one that wouldnt install. The first one runs fine. Any way to get rid of the one that didn't work?

Yeah, that was a bunch of what I was going to tell you to do, pretty much!
  1. Did you get the update from Windows Update or the Toshiba site? (Sorry I'll get to your answer in a minute...)
  2. How much room is left on the C : drive now?
  3. Are you still getting updates (is the win update set to auto install?)
  4. You must have done a Custom Install, rarther than a Clean Install, or it would have formatted the drive first. So you saved your files (you said earlier) do you mean the copy on the E : drive or on the C : drive in a folder named Windows.old?
  5. I also assume you installed your anti-virus as soon as you were in windows, and updated it to the current virus signature database, etc.

(And to answer your question, yes that can be fixed. your computer assigned both drives as system drives, E first, then later C - I don't think it will run from E : but just use the C : copy for the moment - it's kinda like a dual boot, just not set up right, and both copys of windows have the same key)
