Whenever I use the speakers (particularly for iTunes, music and youtube) they crackle every few seconds. The audio can't seem to keep up with the video. I've tried to adjust the speaker settings and download an updated driver (the driver doesn't want to download and has frozen part way through half a dozen times). I'm not sure what else to try but I got this particular netbook because of the reviews of the speakers and it's capacity. I think the problem is probably user related!
Do you notice the same problem when using external speakers or a headset?
What operating system you use at the moment?
There is not much what you can do but try updating the sound driver. On Toshiba website you can look for a newer version of sound driver: http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers
Ok. Thanks everyone here are my responses to your questions
I am using the operating system that was on the computer when I got it. It is 32 bit windows 7 starter
I have tried headphones and there is the same problem with the speakers
I have tried a number of times to update the driver, I was finally able to download it but was told that there was an error and it wouldn't run.
The internet speed is the fastest I can get and I don't have the same problem with my PC or larger laptop, with either the video/audio or the speakers. The iTunes files are all downloaded and not streamed so the internet speed shouldn't affect the playback.
I'll try to download the driver again and look into updating the codecs and let you all know!
