  1. i have this laptop, the specs are, 256 ram, pent 3 m 933 mhs cpu, win xp home sp3, savage graphics, chipset???????
    the problem is that i got this machine without a hdd, so installed one and installed xp home, the drivers came via driver detective, but i had probs downloading the chipset drivers which i think is the reason i dont have sound from the laptop, so a manual search of the model and CPUZ stated the chipset was intel I830mp, i went to intel web site and the advisor on there said i had no compatable intel chipsets and the chip set was by savage, i down loaded the chipset that was suggested by intel adviso and still no sound, i really belive that the chipset is intel, any help would be appreciated

    the audio drivers wont work properly unless the chipset is installed correctly, the chipset link on the toshiba site is broken and wont work.

    If that is the case, then you should install this first: (830MP setup utility)

    Then get your audio drivers solved on Toshiba's website. Even if the download link doesn't work, their website should tell you the make/model of your audio chip and we can find it elsewhere.
