Sound/video problems on laptop [Solved/Closed]

Hi everyone!

I got a cool new Prima 17" TV that I'm attempting to hook my laptop up to for movie-watching.

My laptop is an old IBM ThinkPad. I've got the S-Video to work from laptop-TV, but I can't seem to get the audio to come out of the TV.

I'm using a 3.5mm to dual RCA cable. The RCA is on the TV's "audio in", and the 3.5mm is in the laptop's headphone jack.

But… no sound. I've tried all the different input modes on the TV. Still not working…

Any help is much appreciated!

I have a Toshiba labtop model Satelite A45-S120 with Windows XP. It lost the sound. I have problems re-installing sound card drivers. The control panel does not have the System option for the installation process.

I need help.

Hi JohnsonD !!

Don't be ashamed of IBM because i have an IBM laptop too and do you know that IBM is the most solid brand in laptop's range? Okay, if your laptop is actually very old, just verify if there's nothing wrong with the laptop itself!

Hello Henry,

I was woondering if you solved your Toshiba laptop sound problems and if so- How?
My wife has a Saterlite laptop and when we changed the systm from Vista to XP Pro the sound is so low that we can hardly hear it- It has a built inb webcam that we'd like to use but when we try talking into it and play bac a test's so so low that it''s useless- any ideas?

I have solved my wife's laptop sound problems by a round-about way- I installed DragonNaturally Speaking and they mentioned that the sound in a lot of laptops wasn't very good and suggested using a USB connector for a microphone- Then I remembered that instead of the built in webcam I'd stuck an old cheap webcam with a USB connector on it and ithe sound worked fine. We bought a very good headset/microphone with an usb connector and now the sound we record is great- apparently (according to them ) using a usb connector bypasses the built in sound card a creates a sound card all of it's own- anyway it works, They also say as an aside if you use Naturally Speaking that not all Chinese cheap USB microphones are up to standard including (ouch) the Logitech one- I bought a "Andrea NC-7100 USB" headset on ebay for about $28 and it works wonderfully, noise cancelling etc, it works far better thaqn the cheap $10 I tried at first.
Hope this helps someone.
