Q: I had to reinstall my Windows on my Toshiba laptop. Now that I am back up and running there is no sound coming from my laptop even though I have turned the volume up! I have been on the Toshiba website for my laptop and downloaded the sound drivers but these did not work and also onto the website for Realtek and downloaded there most update driver but still no joy! Can anyone suggest what I can try to get this working. The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite a199-998.
