    The best way to get the right drivers, is to go to Toshiba's site, support, and then find the exact model from the drop down boxes. Another way, is to go to download the free version of the program, and run it.
    It will scan, and make a list of what software is missing and you can then either download them from the list, or write the info down. Note that the free version of the program will be very slow to download your drivers, so use the info you wrote down, (or open a new tab in your browser) and go over to the makers website and download from there. All this is free, you don't need to pay for drivers of this type.

    You would do best to try using the official Toshiba site, the site will look at your pc and find the correct drivers.
    This is the line to copy and paste, into a new tab in your browser. Or open the browser twice. Keep this site in one, and Toshiba's site in another.

    and click on the 'Auto detect' button.
    If it doesn't work for you, or does, let us know.

    Can you go into Device manager, right click on the audio device in the list, and select 'update driver' ? Or, if you run the program 'Speccy' it will tell you the sound device, then you can go to their site and download. For instance, it's fairly common for pc's to use Realtek AC 97 driver. It would be at
    But if you can scan your pc with the Drivereasy program, it should tell you what the correct one is called.

    Also you can find more info about the sound chip in your pc, by typing in 'Start' , msinfo32 , then click on the + next to components.
    It will show your sound chip makers name. Hope that helps.
