Satellite L500-1DT - Where to find sound driver?

Question: Satellite L500-1DT - Where to find sound driver?

Just reformatted laptop, went from windows 7 64 Bit to windows 7 32 bit. Reformatted with the disk which came with the laptop. I have no sound at all, the sound was working perfectly before and it keeps saying i have no sound card. I tried to install the sound drivers but i can't find the right ones on the site with my model.

I have a Satelite L500-1DT with PSLSOE model.

Tried to install the drivers available and i just get an application error once its installing

any idea how to fix or where to find the right drivers?

Preferred Solution: Satellite L500-1DT - Where to find sound driver?

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: Satellite L500-1DT - Where to find sound driver?

Hi buddy,

To be honest I don?t know what problems you have with the sound driver but that?s the correct place for all drivers: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers
Notebook > Satellite > Satellite L Series > Satellite L500 > PSLS0E

But before you install the latest version, remove the current version firstly and clean the registry using CCleaner

I have a new Satellite L500.
I have installed XP and i don't find display drivers.
Display is an ati mobility radeon hd 4500.

I only found drivers for vista.
Did someone find that xp drivers?

Answer:Satellite L500 with XP - Where to find display driver


You are right. The Toshiba European driver page does not provide any Win XP drivers for this notebook yet.

But I think you should not worry? many notebooks are equipped with the same GPU chip.
I recommend checking the previous Toshiba notebooks series and trying to install such driver.

In worst case you will have to google a little bit for a Win XP ATI mobility Radeon HD 4500 driver.

If you will find such driver then you could install it in device manger using the Advanced installation procedure. This will help you to point to the driver files which you have downloaded and stored on the HDD. This installation works nearly everytime?

I would like to ask for your help in the following problem:

I bought a Satellite L500-14F (PLSJTE) and I would like to use it with windows XP, but I failed to get the sound driver.

I would really appreciate your help!

Answer:Satellite L500-14F - Need sound driver for XP


The Satellite L500 doesn?t support Windows XP so you have to search on external websites for drivers.

In your case I would search on the manufactures website of the sound chip. Normally there you can also download the sound driver.

And don?t forget to install SP3 before you install the sound driver. SP3 contains 2 Hotfixes for High Definition Audio cards and you will need it!!!

Hi all,

I'm newly joined here in the forum and I am looking for a sound driver for my Satellite L500-1EJ model laptop which I bought last year here in Doha.

I am really surprised that the model number is not available in Toshiba driver download website!! ??

Can anyone help me please?? I am using Windows XP, service pack 2 now.


Answer:Satellite L500-1EJ - Looking for Windows XP sound driver

Hi shihabuhashim,

Why is the model number not available on Toshiba website? Where have you searched?

I have checked the Toshiba website and I can find it: > Support & Downloads > Download drivers
Notebook > Satellite > Satellite L Series > Satellite L500 > PSLS0E > Windows XP
(Satellite L500-1EJ belongs to PSLS0E series)

Now download the sound driver that you need but it?s recommendable installing Service Pack 3 before you start with driver installation because it contains important updates.

Answer:Satellite 1670 CDS - can not find WXP sound driver


Reading notebook specification for this Satellite and I am really wondering you want to install WXP operating system on it. First of all this notebook is about 7 years old and I really do not believe the WXP can run well with this ?low? hardware configuration.

Secondly, this notebook is not supported for WXP and because of that Toshiba has never offered drivers for this ?oldie?. If you can not find driver on hardware manufacturer directly I am afraid there is no much to do.

Answer:Satellite L650 - Cannot find Sound driver for Win XP


What L650-xxx do you have exactly?
The Toshiba European driver page provides two different sound drivers; Conexant sound driver and ATI sound driver.

Please check exactly the sound card and then use the right and correct sound driver.

PS: Ensure that Win XP is up to date! You need to install all patches, serivce packs and fixes before installing the sound driver!

Firstly ensure you have XP Service Pack 3 installed, so it has support for HD Audio. SP2 doesn't have HD Audio support unless you install two Hotfixes.
Then have a look at the Satellite Pro range for an XP Conexant Audio Driver. Look at the SatPro L650, L550, A500, P500, etc..

The Win XP drivers for this notebook model are not released.
It?s a new model on the market and only vista drivers are available.

But of course you could install the Windows XP.
Many Toshiba notebooks are equipped with the same devices? therefore another Win XO drivers should run in different notebook models?

I hope you can help with my sound issues!

I have a Satellite L500 that is 18mth old.

*Problem One*
Back in March I was having problems with my mic/sound. If I had my volume over 50% I would get a terrible squealing feedback sound that was difficult to mute (ie had to press mute a couple of times).

As I had a 2 year warranty I sent it away and they said they fixed it but it was only short term. The problem came right back. The only solution I found to having sound volume over 50% was to completely disable the mic.

*Problem Two*
For the last few weeks I have been randomly getting this high pitched, ongoing squealing sound which usually occurs when I am out in public with my laptop in my backpack (embarrassing!). I have to keep pressing mute to get the squeal to stop. Interestingly, my laptop is muted when it starts. Sometimes my laptop is hot when it occurs. Is this problem due to overheating?

Any solutions for both of my sound issues? Should I send it back to get repaired under my warranty? When I argued that it wasn't fixed the first time, they said Windows is probably corrupt and that isn't under warranty.



Answer:Satellite L500 - Squealing sound and mic/sound issues

This should help you:

+Whistling sound on the Satellite L500+

This issue occurs if the microphone volume in the speakers properties is enabled.
After disabling this point the issue with acoustic feedback does not appear anymore.

So this is not a hardware problem but setting issue. Using right settings will help you.

I have found and installed all drivers I need for this laptop using Windows XP. My problem is that I can only activate Wireless on this laptop by pushin FN+F8 key, I have installed the Realtek Wireless drivers and they are installed fine, but I can't get Wireless to work because of the FN keys. When I push the FN+F8 key, a blue led should turn on next to the volume controller, but it doesn't...

I've searched for the Hotkey Utility in the Toshiba India site, I downloaded and tryed it but I get the error "This software utility does not support this system", the Common Modules gives me the same error too.

I've tryed installing other Hotkey Utility driver for another laptop, and it doesn't give me that error, but it doesn't work either... I actually leaves my laptop freezing a second, every 5 seconds... and the FN keys still don't work.

Anyone know where I can find a working Hotkey Utility for my laptop using XP?

Or maybe is there a way to activate Wireless without the FN keys? I don't need the other keys... I just want a way to activate Wireless.

Thanks for your time

Answer:Satellite L500 - Can't find drivers for FN keys for Windows XP!


That?s very strange buddy because the point is that XP is the past and newer notebooks doesn?t support this OS.

What you can do is to download the utilities for another Satellite L notebook, e. g. Satellite L300. This supports Windows XP and maybe the tools from that notebook are working on yours.
Check this!!

In worst case you have to live with this issue or you upgrade to Windows Vista. That?s all what you can do.

However, the sound is terrible - tinny.

This is applicable to CDs, radio and DVDs particularly when listening to audio books and radio making it impossible to listen to. Have tried changing the settings for the Realtek High Def Speakers, but no difference.
Windows test 'sounds' are okay and sound coming from both speakers.

Have an old Statellite approx 5 years old and sound is far superior.

Answer:Satellite L500 sound quality is very low

Wait a moment.
Is your notebook delivered with preinstalled Win7 (factory settings)?
Have you noticed this from the first day or now after Win7 installation?
Have you tried to change sound settings in player you use (equaliser)?

To compare it with old notebook is not so relevant. I have 4 years old Satellite M70 with harman/kardon speakers and sound is fabulous and much better and louder than on newer Satellite A300.

Hi, I have a Toshiba Satellite L500-22R with a ATI Mobiliti Radeon HD 5145.

I want to install new drivers for my card, but Toshiba doesn?t upgrade the driver since 2009 (version 8.653.0.0) and the oficial driver version for ATI is 13.1. The problem is that i can install from AMD page because there is a compatibility problem with hardware.

Someone can help me? I want to upgrade my driver version and i can?t understand this situation.

Answer:Satellite L500-22R - ATI driver upgrade


Here is a AMD page providing this info:

+The following notebooks *are not compatible* with this release:+
+? Any notebook launched after this driver release+
+? Toshiba notebooks (please contact the notebook OEM for driver support for these notebooks)+
+? Sony VAIO notebooks (please contact the notebook OEM for driver support for these notebooks)+
+? Panasonic notebooks (please contact the notebook OEM for driver support for these notebooks)+

In some cases its possible to install such driver but you will have to do that manually from device manager. There you have to click on graphic card, have to choose the Advanced installation procedure which helps you to point to the driver folder which you downloaded from the AMD page. The driver folder should contain dll and ini files. Such files are needed for driver update.

If uninstalling and reinstalling those drivers doesn't work then the next step is to do a System Restore to restore the registry back to a previous date.

If that doesn't work, then Windows may be corrupted beyond repair. You may need to backup your important data and run Recovery to restore Windows back to it's factory state.

There are no Wireless Lan Driver for Windows 7 for the Satellite L500 (yet).
Do the Vista driver also work?


Answer:Satellite L500-131 - WLan driver for Win 7?

Hey Andy,

Yes, normally the Vista drivers are also work on Windows 7 so it's worth a try! ;)

What WLAN card you have exactly? Maybe you can find a driver directly on the manufactures website, e. g. Intel or Realtek.

Hi Alec_1,

I have bought a new Toshiba laptop yesterday and started using from today afternoon but since then I am experiencing a crackling noise from my right speaker I want to whether there is any problem or it?s because of the moisture.

Answer:Crackling sound from new Satellite L500-1XC right speaker

It is not easy to say what is wrong there but if you have this crackling sound permanently maybe is there some serious problem with the speaker.
Try to contact your local dealer as soon as possible and ask for replacement. In my opinion he should take the notebook back and give you new product.

You can install it but the usage is your own risk.
From my knowledge the Toshiba drivers are modified and designed for mobile usage.

I noticed that Toshiba release the new notebook models very often and the drivers will be released for such new series. So in cases the new notebook model uses the same ATI graphic series, you could use the same driver.

Thanks for your help.

Answer:Satellite L500-1Q9 - Update for display driver


Is it really a display driver issue that you need a new version? If you need a newer display driver for games you should update the DirectX version first and have a look if the game is compatible to your graphic card.

If you can?t find a newer display driver for Satellite L500 check other notebook specifications. Other models like Satellite L650 also have an AMD graphic card and there you should find a newer version. :)

My graphic card supposed to be an ATI RADEON HD 5145.
I try to download drom toshiba web site, it has also no suitable driver for my notebook .

Then i tried to recognize my notebook with downloading pc-recognize program so maybe i just picked wrong model of notebook . The PROGRAM that i installed did not RECOGNIZE my notebook !!!!!!

*It means , Toshiba didn't recognize it's own notebook model !*

I updated my driver from Windows Update , but windows update just recognized my graphic card as HD 4500 ?? and always it gives me blue screen now. !

If Toshiba does not want to support my notebook why they not making announcement for that issue ?

Answer:Satellite L500-1UU: What graphic card driver can I use?


As far as I know this notebook is equipped with the ATI Mobility Radeon? HD 5145.

Here are the details:
[Satellite L500-1UU Part Number: PSLS9E-01N00DG3|]

Not sure why your Win 7 recognize the card as HD 4500 but I recommend checking this in DirectX
In RUN (or search) type DXDIAG and check what info would be available for this GPU.

The graphic card driver?s ini file contains more graphic card chip model numbers so the same driver is compatible with different graphic chips!

Be sure that you have downloaded the right version Display Driver v 8.653 (32bit or 64bit)

Answer:Satellite L500-1C7 Cannot install Intel graphic driver

Generally speaking it is always recommended to use Toshiba drivers only. Toshiba drivers are tested and adapted to work with graphic card placed in notebook. There is also ?mechanism? to protect graphic card from overheating and damaging.

If you check this forum you will find many users with same problem. graphic card manufacturers write on own download pages that for mobile PCs it is strictly recommended to use drivers from notebook manufacturer.

I believe you think it is good driver but do you also think that Toshiba?s driver is not good or not good enough?

Answer:Satellite L500-1CQ PSLS0E - CD/DVD drive does not work - Driver problem?


To be honest I?m a little bit confused.
Are you not able to boot from ANY disks; Windows disk, recover disk, Linux disk???

If it?s the case, then this means that you CD/DVD drive is faulty.
Why? Because CD/DVD drive is recognized and controlled by BIOS while booting from CD or DVD.

When Windows operating system has booted up, then the CD/DVD drive should use the common Microsoft driver which is a part of the Windows OS.
This means that you don?t need to install ANY drivers in order to get the CD/DVD working.

If you can boot from any disk but if the CD/DVD drive is not recognized in MY Computer, then I recommend checking this:

Before you would delete the upper and lower filters from the registry, delete the CD/DVD drive from device manager and then go to registry and remove filters. Then reboot the unit.

Good luck

I have just purchased a toshiba Satellite L500-13v laptop to use for general and studying purposes and am having problems.

Firstly music, when listening to music i keep having problems, the laptop will maka a horrible noise that i can only compare to the sound made when you put a cd into your car stereo and it doesn't like it.

When making this sound the laptop also seems to pause for a sec or so then continue.
This has happened when playing from cds, the hardrive and streaming straight form the internet.
Also got progressivelly worse, never at the same moment on a song or game always randomly.

Went back to the store and they said it sounds faulty and replaced the machine . . . . . .
The new one has started doing it.
On a game played online (with sound) it seemed to freeze and make this sound and everything stopped and also when streaming again.

This is a 4gb machine and at these times i would never be using more than 1.5 gb of ram.

This is meant to be everything i need computer wise for the next four and i am getting more and more concerned there is a problem.
I was told at the store this i a very new model, could this be one of those problems you only find once a model goes out??

Plese Help???????

I used to do it before installing that new sound driver.
I don't have a restore point for a date preceeding the install and i also remember that the installer warned me that it would uninstall the current sound driver before installing the new one.

So i guess that uninstalling the latest driver will leave me with no sound at all.

So what should i do?

Answer:Can't find right sound driver Please Help!!!

Hi just an idea that may be a solution. I ran into a simular situation a year ago. Turned out that the machines BIOS needed to be upgraded for use with XP OS. If your machine came with XP this might not be the case. In my situation I had upgraded from Win ME OS to XP.

I really hate having to guess on the manufacturer of a motherboard, when only the model# is posted. I will take a guess though, ECS motherboard. You need to go to the manufacturer site at and download the drivers at which is the only way to get the drivers. Searching here and there is not going to get you the correct drivers.

Unfortunately, the info you posted doesn't provide the needed info to help us find your sound driver. Please read this thread and provide the info requested. If needed, use the following steps to attach a full Everest report to a future post:

Use Everest to get a report of your system?s hardware, OS, and drivers. Upload the report as an attachment
When Everest is done scanning, click "Report" at the top of the Everest window, click next to get to "Report Profile", select "Hardware related pages", click next, select "Plain Text", click "Finish". Then when it is done processing, click "Save To File". Save it where you want to. (I would use Desktop.)
Click "Go Advanced" in the MG reply box, scroll down a little way until you see "Manage Attachments", click it, browse to your file, click "Upload", and close the window. Then submit the post.

The company I work for recently bought me a "Gateway 504GR".

Unfortunately about 15 days after I got it the harddrive went corrupt and I had to call tech support and have them send me a new one. In the meantime I went and bought another harddrive and installed it. It took me a while to find some of the drivers but I eventually found them on the site.

Unfortunately I still haven't been able to get my sound to work. Intel's site ( says "The base driver for Intel High Definition Audio is now a common operating system driver provided by Microsoft*. This provides some benefits compared to previous models, most importantly stability." But it is not working.

In the new harddrive I've installed XP Pro SP2, other than that the specs are listed on the 504GR page.
("Gateway 504GR")

Please help me find this!

P.S. Under Device Manager and "Other Devices" I have "PCI Device"

Answer:Can't Find Sound Driver.

I called an harrassed my tech support until they e-mailed it to me.

So please ignore this and don't respond here.

Does anyone know of a sound driver that is compatible with Hp pavilion 752n or where I can get one?
