Laptop sound issues

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have this very poor toshiba satellite laptop as a school or "mobile" computer, and just recently it has started to show issues with sound output.

Whenever I turn the sound on (that is, turn the volume up from zero), I can hear a loud-ish click and some static white noise starts coming from the speakers. Every sound I play works, but it has a static sound to it and sounds very poor, louder noises are breaking. (I don't know the correct terms, sorry) The only way I can listen to anything is to plug in a headset with volume control and turn the volume down to mute the static, then turn the windows volume up to hear anything. Still the voises are breaking and static. The constant white noise doesn't seem to be connected with the windows volume.

So is there any other possible reasons for this than the integrated sound card being broken? Could it be some other signal interfering with the sound card? I tried updating to the latest drivers but it didn't work. It happens both on the integrated speakers and external headphones. The computer works fine otherwise. It's a Toshiba Satellite L300D.

Maybe it's just a punishment for being cheap a couple of years ago when I bought this piece of junk... Luckily I didn't do the same with my desktop computer. I maybe should try to open the case and see if all the wires and such are properly connected or something. Or put the mobo in the oven like I did with my old 8800 GT lol.

Have you tried muting the microphone or decreasing it's volume yet?
