I have a Toshiba satellite A500 laptop and lately I seem to be having intermittant problems with the left-hand built in speaker.
Sometimes the sounds come out of the speaker perfectly but then it'll go off for a while and then come back on, then go off again. There's no pattern to it at all, so I can't pin point why it is happening.
There doesn't seem to be a problem at all with the right-hand speaker.
Can anybody help here please?
Could it be a loose wire or may it be something to do with a driver that needs updating? I am using Windows 7 which I am new to.
However, I’m afraid this utility will not help you a lot…
From my point of view there is an technical issue with the right built-in speaker.
I think only speaker replacement would help to sort out this problem.
By the way: is Smart Audio installed on your notebook?
Check the control panel… if its installed, check the settings and disable the “3d immersion”
Have you tested speaker’s functionality with “Toshiba diagnostic tool”?
Anyway, in my opinion you have two options now:
Either to contact Toshiba service provider and let them check speaker’s functionality or use external speakers/headphones.
I also think it is hardware related issue and there must be some problem with speaker conection.
