Bad Speakers on Satellite C70D-B-10UM

Question: Bad Speakers on Satellite C70D-B-10UM

My girlfriend bought me a new Toshiba laptop C70D-B-10U (my second Toshiba), it is a good laptop apart from the speakers they are terrible. I didn't want my first post to be a complaint but, Toshiba cut corners when it put the speakers in this series of laptops.

Or have I not set them right has anyone else had this problem, any ideas or solutions thank you.

Preferred Solution: Bad Speakers on Satellite C70D-B-10UM

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Bad Speakers on Satellite C70D-B-10UM

I think your notebook has only small stereo speakers and the sound is not the best. I have Satellite S50-B with Harman/kardon speakers and sound is really good.

You can try to change sound options but if you want to have better sound I’m afraid you need external speakers, Maybe BT speakers.

I've only noticed today that when I turn up my laptop's volume up to about 28 (even with headphones in), there's this high pitch noise that comes from the speakers. And I'm sure it's the speakers and not anything else.
But the sound is sort of that real ear-killing noise so I can't listen to it for long. It even sometimes sounds like thousands of crickets - a complete nightmare

But with my volume at any level below 28 I can listen to whatever through headphones without the sound bothering me.

Does anyone have any ideas for a solution? I do know a thing or two about computers but nothing about anything extremely technical and I'm not sure if I want to take it apart, unless I really have to.

If you could help me it would be appreciated!

Good evening,

I'm sorry to disturb,
but I find myself in a situation to which I find no solution,
that's why I come here asking for some help.

A friend has just purchased the following laptop:
- Satellite C70D-B-307

but the worry is that apparently it is impossible to have access to the HDD recovery to execute the factory restoration.
I try all possible solutions that I find on the web and none of it works.

what to do ?

does Toshiba sell the recovery DVDs that will restore the computer to its factory state?

Thank you very much .

My wive purchase this computer coupple of months ago. It was from the beginning ferry slow on windows 8
The wurst laptop we ever had. We feel robbed of our money.

2 months ago we started with Ubuntu. It Still slow. IS there anybody with the same problems?



Answer:Satellite C70D-A-108 is very slow

Hi Marco

I don't have this notebook model and cannot confirm what you wrote but fact is that almost all new notebooks are pretty slow at the beginning. Many applications are set to start with Windows and this, of course, slows down boot time.
Windows updates are also set to automatic so in the background the machine will download and install many updates so this will slow down your machine rapidly.

In my opinion you should install original OS that you got with this machine and optimize it a bit.
Remove all useless stuff, change start-up option and disable automatic Windows updates.
In the past I have noticed that original preinstalled antivirus is also responsible for notebook?s performance so I don't use original preinstalled application but my own version of Avir Antivir and it runs perfectly.

Check all these options and I hope your machine will run much better than before.

Just bought a Satellite C70D with Win 8.1. Everything works (as far as I know until know), except boot from DVD. I disabled in the bios the Secure Boot and changed the boot order to DVD first, then USB and then HDD. The DVD drive starts, but then it skips to the HDD and Windows is started. First time I tried there was a message like "DVD boot not supported" or something like that.
The DVD is bootable, so that is not the problem.
I would like to install Linux Mint alongside Windows.
Anyone solved this problem already?

Answer:Satellite C70D - How to boot from DVD

Update: changing from UEFI to CMS in the BIOS Advanced tab makes it possible to boot from DVD, but Windows won't boot anymore.... Is there any possibility to boot from DVDE and still be able to start Windows as well?

Please help!

Answer:Need new display for my Satellite C70D-A


The Satellite C70D-A-11K was equipped with the 17.3" LED color LCD panel with the supporting max resolution of 1600 x 900 px
You should be able to order such display panel from local Toshiba authorized service provider or you could check some 3rd part online dealers who provide compatible notebook parts…

As I mention above: you should look for the 17.3" panels.

I have a C70D-A-107 and want to speed up this notebook. Already placed 4gb extra memory so the notebook has now 8gb internal. I doubt whether it is usefull to put in 2x8gb. I think the processor is just to slow. It has a AMD E1-2100 inside. Is it possible to put in another (faster) processor?

Answer:Speed-up Satellite C70D-A-107

The Satellite C70D-A-107 was equipped with an AMD Essentials E1-2100 Accelerated CPU (1,00 GHz, 1 MB L2 Cache)
It’s not the fastest CPU therefore the notebook performance isn’t the best…

But CPU upgrade isn’t officially supported by notebook manufacturer... therefore I don’t think that you will be able to upgrade the CPU…

I read about successful Intel CPU upgrades but did not meet anyone who was able to perform an upgrade with an AMD CPU

Hello everybody,
the Toshiba Sat C70D-B-317 (PSCLEE01L009FR) is on it's way and I don't have it for the moment but I would like to know if there is a way to add some Ram to this machine without opening everything?
Also, is it possible to change the HD in the future in the same conditions?

sorry, but it's my first PC laptop and as a Mac user I'm completely lost with all these models and different serial numbers.

I thank you in advance for your answer.


Answer:Satellite C70D-B-317 - Ram upgrade

1. yes you can upgrade your RAM, This laptop has 2 slots with one 4GB standard so if you would you can put one more 4GB. With 2x4 you have Dual-channel and that works much faster than single

I don't know if your HDD can e upgraded. When it's not possible you can always buy a external HDD

Can somebody explain me why this laptop has a 1GHz processor with 6GB of RAM. this doensn't makes sence at all

Hi All,

I have an Satellite C70D-A-11D ... when I use once the FN Key to do a Print Screen or use the Screen-Zoom on the Space Key...

I am not able to use the Keynumbers 1 to 4 neither the space Key to enter a space between two always change between the bigger screen solution or the normal solution...

I only can change the FN Key again after change the settings in Display settings and after a reboot...
So I cant use FN without a reset with the F1 to F12 Key use and a reboot...

Normaly the FN Key works only if it is pressed...if not the normal Function of the Keys 1 to 4 or F1 to F12 will work if configured in the settings, or not?

What to do?

Kind regards

Answer:Satellite C70D-A-11D Function Key deactivate after use

First of all you can change between the special function key mode (without pressing FN key) or normal (standard) mode (Hold Fn first to use standard F1-F12 functions.)

This function can be changed in BIOS.
In BIOS go to Advanced -> System configuration

Check this option.

I have a Satellite C70D-A-114...

i hardly used it because it was slow

so i wanted to sell it

first i wanted to set it back to factory settings

doing that, in that process i seem to have deleted all files

so now i get message no bootable disc etc.

Tried everything, there is simply no recovery file

So where can i find such a file for free? It's just not normal that it is not on the site.

Answer:Need recovery files for my Satellite C70D-A-114

All you can find for free are all drivers, tools and utilities. Original recovery image (software package) is not for free and if you need it you must order recovery disc directly by Toshiba.

You can order it on

By the way: in user’s manuals document is clearly described how you can create recovery installation disc. I’m wondering you didn’t make it in the past.

Hi There,

I have had a Satellite C70D for about 18 months now, but have not used it in the past year as I have been disputing with customer services about the windows licence for the machine as I lost it when I formatted the original hard drive before installing an SSD and they wouldnt send me a copy of it. I have now bitten the bullet and bought a windows 10 licence again. However since building the machine a few days ago, I have been having a couple of issues and as it is now out of warranty, I cannot contact customer support (Who I found unhelpful even when it was in warranty!)

The first issue is when I boot up the machine, occasionally the keyboard will not work, I cannot type the BitLocker pin and I have to remove the battery and press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, this then fixes the issue for a few reboots before it goes again.

The second is that occasionally it will boot up with a red x next to the WiFi symbol, but it detects the WiFi card, usually a reboot fixes this but not always. I have reseated the card and still no avail.

Can anyone shed any light on what may be causing this? The BIOS is up-to-date as are all of the drivers.

Thanks in advance for your help

So I bought this laptop a few months ago.
For the past few weeks the Laptop stopped playing sound.
I watched a stream in Chrome.

So actually I should be able to see the sound playing in the mixer.
But I wasn't able to play any sound or get any deflection in the mixer.

Then I installed Speccy and as this administration window popped up a sound was played and it worked.

I have no idea why the sound stopped working and why it started again.
Is someone able to help me?

I am using Windows 8.1

Answer:Satellite C70D-A-11D - no sound, random

The main thing is that you have sound again. It is not easy to say what was wrong there.
Have you installed some updates or anything else that can be responsible for this sound issue?

Answer:Can I replace the HDD in my Satellite C70D-B -00P model with an SSD?

Generally speaking yes, you can do this but problem is that your notebook model doesn't have HDD cover at the bottom side.
To have full access to the HDD the bottom cover must be removed completely but it should be done by authorized service only.

Of course you can try to do it alone but I?m afraid you may lose the warranty.
If possible contact nearest Toshiba service provider in your country, explain the situation and ask for help.

I have 2 issues with my new Satellite C70D-B-32U.
When I put it in sleep mode, it does. But after about 5 minutes, it goes automatically to hibernate. This I don't want. And I don't want to disable hibernate, because I do use it when the laptop is not in use for longer periods. The power settings in control panel do not reflect this behaviour. In the settings, I specified that the laptop should never go to hibernate. Hybrid state is disabled.

And secondly, more importantly. Whenever it goes to hibernate, I can only wake it up with the power button. Not with the (internal) keyboard, not with the usb mouse. I would like an option to wake it from hibernate by pressing any key on the keyboard. In bios power on keyboard is set to on. Is there anything else I can change to have this available?
Actually if issue 1 is solved and the laptop stays in sleep mode, this issue is also solved since from sleep I can wake on a mouseclick which is also fine.

The OS is windows 8.1

Who can give me the golden tip?

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-306 - 2 unknown devices in device list

There is a good method in order to find out what drivers are missing.
First of all you should check the DEV (device) and VEN (vendor) IDs

Here is an short instruction how to find this details:

Knowing the device and vendor ID, it should not be a big deal to get the right drivers.

At the other hand you should install also additional Toshiba software (Toshiba System Driver) released for Win 8.1
Please note also that there are two Win 8.1 driver areas: ?Win 8.1 update? and ?Win 8.1 32bit/64bit? categories
In case you would not find all drivers within the Win 8.1 update check also the Win 8.1 32bit/64bit categories.

Such GPU is similar to Intel HD GPU which is also part of Intel CPUs.

Such internal graphic cards are not really designed for gaming? of course you would be able to run and to play a game but don?t expect too much?

Answer:ODD on my Satellite C70D-A-11E wont read DVDs anymore


If optical disc drive is installed properly maybe is reading lens dirty. Try to clean it up.

Other way, if your ODD can read CDs but not DVDs it can also be hardware malfunction. The reading lens cannot be calibrated properly and cannot find the right position to read DVD media.

In such case ODD must be exchanged.

Hi all,

excuse the new thread but I haven't found any answers anywhere online, just speculation and it's for different models.

So I have a C70D-B-10U, running windows 7 64bit pro. When I formatted it and updated everything, it just kept crashing when trying to play back videos on Windows Media Player. I cleaned the inside and replaced thermal paste, updated to even newer drivers, and started using VLC as my default media player. It rarely crashed BUT it always does when I try to start playing games (nothing heavy - League of Legends). Laptop seems to be doing well with memory tests, no faults detected.

I've read that this could be caused by:
Faulty GPUFaulty BatteryFaulty PSUBad Capacitors on the MOBO

Has anyone had any similar experience? I've reinstalled Windows and it's the same story. If it's a motherboard issue, I guess it would be better to just get a new one?


Answer:Satellite C70D-B-10U no warning crash (power, GPU or capacitors)

Update: I decided to test the RAM and it seems like it can't handle 8GB. Both 4GB sticks work on any slot, but when I have all of it on the machine it crashes. Do you think it is a motherboard issue?

Would be grateful for any advice to remove the back panel.

I've removed battery, ~16 screws + 1 tiny screw at the optical drive and whilst it does 'unclick' everywhere else, there seems to be something stopping the panel being removed just above the battery compartment and don't want to force it.

Even our IT guys at work cannot work it out.

PLEASE new laptop is very slow so have purchased RAM but can't access the back.

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-30D: How to access back panel after ~16 screws removed

At first I must say that you should not remove bottom cover alone because it will cancel valid warranty. If there is no RAM cover, RAM should be exchanged or upgraded by authorized personal only.

I know every of us think it is easy to do and want to do this alone.
What I know is follow:
2 screws in the middle are fixing the keyboard. What must be removed are 14 screws and small flat screw at the optical drive. That’s all. There is no other hidden screw.

Of course there are also small plastic holders and bottom cover must be removed very gently.

Hi Frankie,

I understand that your problem is that your Bass-Subwoofer doesn't work properly. Did you reinstall the driver and additional Software from your Tools & Utilities CD or from toshiba website? (

Also you could check in control panel the Sound and Audio Devices. There should setted the Yamaha AC-XG WDm Audio as Default device under AUDIO.

Or another suggestion check the Device Manager under System in the control panel and check if the devices are working properly!

It could also possible that your subwoofer is out of order and should be changed by a Serivce Partner!

I bought a 2nd hand Satellite A80 laptop recently and after I've reinstalled Windows XP Pro with SP3 and the audio driver downloaded from Toshiba download center, the sound from the speaker panel is really soft and i mean really really soft until you would think that there is no sound at all. You have to listen very closely next to the speaker and can only hear a very faint hum (2% of the sound) when I tried to play an mp3.

If I tried with the headphone jack, I can hear the sound although I expected it to be louder.
The sound is not mute and all sound drivers in the hardware configuration shows the drivers are working fine.

I've tried uninstalling the driver, reboot the notebook and installed the latest Realtek AC 97 driver downloaded from Realtek, and the problem is still the same.
I've even tried using Toshiba's recovery disk to restore the entire system back to the Windows Home Edition, still no difference.

Does anyone know what could be the problem?
Appreciate the help as I've been trying to fix the problem for 2 days.

Answer:No sound on Satellite A80 speakers

Is there an "SRS" sticker on the laptop?

I got a wireless mouse and so, using F5 disabled the touchpad. Now I can't get it to work again. I was told, by the support robot/person here, to turn the laptop off and then to remove the battery and AC adapter before pressing and holding the power button on the laptop for 10 seconds. Then I should replace the AC adapter, leaving the battery out, before turning the machine on and then immediately start tapping the F2 key. This will take me into BIOS. Once there and the BIOS menu has loaded, tap the F9 key and then press Enter. This will reset BIOS to the default settings. To exit the BIOS, tap the F10 key and then press Enter. This will restart the laptop.

The trouble is I cannot do any of this as the battery is does not seem to be removable, by the customer at least, on this product.
Had I been able to achieve this and found the cure not to have happened that I should reinstall the touchpad driver.

As I cannot do what is advised, in correct sequence, I am at a loss as to just what I should do. HELP PLEASE.

You dont need to remove the battery, you can do a hard reset by holding down the power button for 20 seconds.

If no, there may be a hardware problem.
If yes, uninstall the touchpad driver in Control Panel, then let Windows Update install the new driver.

There seems to be a few issues on the internet with other versions of the A500. This computer was preloaded with Windows 7, and has always had problems with crackling speakers, particularly with iTunes and Media player. Some people have apparently fixed this with driver updates, but NVidea state shouldn't update until told to or provided with update from Toshiba.
Does Toshiba know there is a problem?

Should I just return the computer as it is pretty much useless if the speakers don't really work! I have only had it since November.

Any advice welcome.

Hello guys!

Normally, I would not put such a question in a forum, as I am quite familiar with hardware, but there are unexplained situations.
My laptop model in the title came with windows 8.1, is working with 10 without any problems.

Yesterday I decided to make the creators update. Alright, it did without stress, in spite of one or another problem of hardware configuration drivers it went okay,

Then i noticied that I have no sound, neither the speakers nor the jack. I hear a punctual click and when doing mute / unmute it always clicks on the speakers, it does only in the left column, on the right it does nothing.

After doing the creators update, I made manual update to most of the drivers that there were available. I've tried all kinds of drivers from realtek and toshiba, including those from msft.

Now the strangest thing is that I did a restore from a backup one month ago, where everything worked fine and the problem remains.
I'm getting screwed because I can not find an explanation. The click on the speakers starts when windows is booting, in safe mode, being the sound service off no clicks are heard.

Even deleting the drivers and trying everyone and some more nothing works.
Eventually, if the speakers are failing, there should be sound from the headphones jack.
Has anyone had a similar experience you would like to share?

The internal speakers on my Satellite L750 - 16Z (PSK1WE) cut out after 1 or 2 minutes when playing any video or music track. The earphones work fine. The sound can be restored by plugging and unplugging the earphones. The speakers will work again with any new application, or after a long pause, then they cut out. This didn't happen the computer was new, only after about 18 months.

I have seen dozens of posts on this and the US forums from people who have this problem.I am running Windows 7 64-bit, but I see that people are having the same problem with Windows 8. I have tried most of the proposed solutions:

Reinstalling the sound driver (in my case Conexant Smart Audio HD version;
Shutting down, removing the battery, etc;
Clicking alternately on Playback and Recording in the Sound settings dialogue box;

and *none of them work.* I'm not willing to do a System Recovery and risk losing my data. Using external speakers is not a solution for people who move around (wouldn't have bought a laptop if I had to carry a suitcase full of accessories to make it work).

I should really appreciate some help on this

Answer:Speakers cut out after 1 or 2 minutes on my Satellite L750

{quote}The sound can be restored by plugging and unplugging the earphones.{quote}
I had exactly the same problem with my notebook. But my notebook supports the Realtek HD sound driver.
Nevertheless the same issue appeared. The sound from speakers disappeared but headphones worked fine.

I?m quite sure its software related issue. From my point of few you would able to resolve this by new system installation but this would be very drastic procedure just to get rid of this annoying problem. I was able to solve this following this workaround.

In device manager expand the category ?Audio Video game controllers?
Here search for High Definition Audio device and delete it

Expand the System devices and search for High Definition Audio controller
Mark it and delete it.
Additionally you could uninstall the Conexant sound driver. But in my case this was not necessary.

After that reboot the notebook and wait until the deleted devices have been recognized and installed again..

Good luck

When you buy new notebook you should register it and “activate” the warranty.
You can do this on

Generally speaking your notebook must run properly and if there is some technical or mechanical problem you can contact Toshiba service provider in your country and ask for help.

I cannot say for sure but I presume there must be some connection problem so what you can do is to contact nearest Toshiba ASP -

Of course you can also try to contact your local dealer and ask for replacement.

I have had my laptop for about a year or so, and I noticed when I very first turned it on that quite a loud hissing noise came from the onboard speakers. It has always been there, although it sometimes goes and returns for no apparent reason (it doesn't seem to be triggered by a particular application, for example...). I learned to live with it, but I am now using and external USB headphone amplifier for my headphones, and the noise it really quite noticeable and annoying.

The Microsoft website hasn't helped, so I'm wondering now whether it's a hardware problem; has anyone experienced anything similar and solved the problem?

Answer:Satellite A200 - hiss from speakers


Is your notebook up to date? In this case I mean especially the sound and graphic drivers but also the BIOS. I think you should check the Toshiba website for some updates: => Support & Downloads => Download Drivers

Before you install a newer sound or graphic driver you should remove the old version first. Then restart the notebook and install the newest version from the Toshiba page.

Every model has different speaker/multimedia capability.

Generally, if you need loud speakers for multimedia playback, the Qosmio range or the Satellite Pxxx range is the best option.

Lastly, the only place I can find this for sale is Comet... Just wondering it anyone has seen it anywhere else as I've had a couple of dodgy experiences with them.


Answer:Satellite A100-451 - A few questions about HDD, speakers


I have found info that HDD rotation is 4200rpm. About speakers I am not 100% sure but usually if notebook has harman/kardon speakers it is listed in specification but for A100-451 it is not the case. This info you can get from dealer directly.

BT is not available and this should not surprise you because most A100 models are delivered without BT module. You can anytime use BT USB stick. IT is simply to use and really not expensive.

I installed an Intel solid state drive 2 months ago. I installed windows 7 immediately with it. Everything works fine now, except for my sound speakers.

This laptop has, like all other Toshiba's, incredible good sound thanks to the quality off the speakers, combined with harman/kardon. But since installing Windows 7 there is a lot off murmur on the speakers, especially when the volume is higher, with treble, or when the SRS WOW effect in windows media player is turned too high.

I installed the lasted drivers posted on the toshiba driver support site. That means I installed smartaudio. With smartaudio its better but the problem is still there. It's very irritating because the speakers are normally very good like I said. Is there a solution for this problem? With smartaudio you can't adjust your sound, like you can do with the realtek sound manager. Or maybe my speakers are worn, but thats something I can't believe because I don't use them that much and when I use them the volume is mostly very low.

Thx in advance, Jefferson

Answer:Satellite P300-175 - Murmur on the speakers

Hi Jefferson,

Have you noticed the same problem with factory settings? I mean the preinstalled Vista version with all driver and tools.
If not, check this!!!

It would also be interesting to know if you can notice the same problem with external speakers?

How can I switch on/off the led under the speakers? ( in Satellite P100 (PSPA6E))
Now I see the light only in the left side, but when I bought the computer it lights left and right blue led line under speakers.

Answer:How can I switch on/off the led under the speakers on Satellite P100?

If you can only see the blue light under one speaker then one of the lights is broken or faulty as you cannot turn them off, as far as I'm aware the blue lights are only supplied with Satellite notebooks which have the Nvidia graphics cards.

Hello everybody.

Few months ago I bought a Laptop (M40-184) which uses the speakers harman Kardon. I have two questions to ask you.

1. The battery does not operate for more than 1 hour (when the laptop is just on, or when the internet explorer is on). There are not any other programs running.I think that is not normal. What can I do? Shall I return it?

2. The speakers make a strange noise in the low frequencies, when I am listening to music or watch DVD. It does not have to be heavy bit or something. It was supposed to be a very good pair of speakes.
What can I do?

Thank you in advance

The speakers in my laptop cut out after a couple of minutes whether I am playing music from iTunes, a DVD or talking on Skype - any ideas please anyone?

Answer:Re: Satellite L750 - the speakers cut out after few minutes

And then?
What must you do to get speakers work again? Notebook restart maybe?

Do you use original preinstalled OS that you got with your notebook?
Since when have you noticed this behaviour?
Does the same happen when you use headphones?

I shut down my notebook Satellite P200-14N speakers off and now don't know how to put them on again.
Someone can help me?

Answer:How to enable the speakers on Satellite P200-14N

Did you enable the mute???

If yes, then you could enable and disable the sound using the key combination FN+ESC

If you are using the Win Vista then the mute option could be found in the control panel -> sound

Answer:Satellite M40 184 - Question about Battery and speakers


Usually the battery working time depends on the notebook usage.
If you use a high performance tools like 3d graphic tools, games or watching DVDs the battery working time goes down.
But if you use only the IE explorer the battery should works longer than 1 hour. In this case I think it?s a battery fault. So you should contact the ASP for the battery replacement.
Additionally you should always remove the battery from the unit if the AC adapter is plugged in.

2.) As far as I know the Toshiba Virtual sound utility is preinstalled on his unit. There you can change some sound setting. Maybe there you can solve the issue with your speakers.

Best regards

I have a Satellite L500D.

When connecting external speaker s(Logitech z 10) via USB-port, the sound is just dreadful, with scraping etc. I have installed the latest drivers.
These speakers have their own soundcard and works excellent with every other pc I've tried them on.

Anyone have a clue about what's the problem here?
Would be grateful for any input what could fix the #?&%&?.

Answer:Cannot use Logitech z 10 speakers with Satellite L500D

hi plutopus,
which drivers have you updated?

make sure that that the following steps are done:
- latest usb driver for your machine
- latest sounddriver for your machine
- latest driver for your logitech speakers
if have have some "enhance sound" software installed such as realtek or nvidia sound enhancer try to deinstall
maybe they are "fighting" each other and your sound is worse...

I've only had my laptop for just over a year, but, for about six months now the speakers on it crackle. Mostly when i'm playing music but it can happen when games are played on there aswell. Why is this?

Answer:Re: Speakers Crackle on Satellite A100-049

Hmm? maybe there is a speaker fault.
Did you check if the same crackling noise would appear using the headphones?
