I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite P105-S6217 laptop computer, which came with Windows Vista Home Premium installed. I toyed around with Vista for a week (had never used it before) and felt that it was just a resource hog, I mean, I can get the same look in XP by installing Windowblinds. So I took Vista off by formatting my hard drive, and installed XP Pro (the speed boost and batter life boost were nice). I have everything working fine right now, except for my sound. My sound card in Vista was listed as 'Conexant HD Audio' in the device manager. Everest Home Edition (love that program) has my sound card listed as:
Intel 82801GBM ICH7-M - High Definition Audio Controller
I am having a very difficult time getting my sound to work. I have installed the drivers that came on my recovery discs, and the card is listed as 'Conexant HD Audio' in device manager now, but no matter what I try, what I download, I just can't get it working. The only sound I do have at the moment is the system's internal speaker.
Can anyone help me out here? I would just go to the Toshiba website and download my drivers, but Toshiba doesn't support XP on their newer machines. They've made a total switch to Vista.
