OpenSUSE Hardware :: Toshiba Satellite M300 - Microphone Not Working
Dec 15, 2009
I have problems getting my microphone to work. When I try to record something I just get noise.
The following it he output from /usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh script:

Let me preface this by stating that I am a very new Linux user (newb) so I could be missing something very obvious. I have a Toshiba Satellite L645D-S4056 and recently installed Fedora 14 (64-bit GNOME) with all sorts of updates and software. I'm working my way through all of the hardware to get it all running properly. I figured out how to get the RealTek wireless-n adapter working.
The webcam is working even with Skype which is tricky on the 64-bit version. At the moment, my touchpad doesn't work. I see a lot of articles online about the touchpad not double-tapping, but mine doesn't work at all. I've been using a mouse for all my GUI stuff. I went to SYSTEM --> PREFERENCES --> MOUSE and selected the touchpad tab, but I can't figure out how to make it work.
I've this issue where my audio on the laptop which is toshiba satelite p100 doesn't work after i installed fedora 12. I installed vlc media player but still can't get audio working!! For general info my audio driver is: Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02)

i recently installed ubuntu 11.04 on my toshiba satellite p200-1k8 laptop; with ubuntu the fans were always running at full blast and the laptop would overheat and shut down even though i wasn't using the computer for anything intensive, e.g.just browsing videos. i installed opensuse thinking the problem might have been with ubuntu but in suse as well the fans seem to be running full blast right from start up and the laptop getting quite hot. i've now learnt this is a generic problem with toshiba satellite laptops and linux, something to do with acpi and possibly the ati graphics cards? my gpu is an ati mobility radeon 2600 if thats any help. in windows (which i was last using two days ago) the fans and heat from the laptop were nowhere near this noticeable and i didn't experience this overheating problem just browsing the web.
could anyone recommend any fixes to better the heat management of my laptop on linux (apart from cleaning the fan which i've already tried )?
After updating the repositories, a long update took place... and after completed, my sound card was disabled. I had to reboot the system to have it working again, yet... mp3, mp4, avi files cannot be reproduced at all.
I just want to get rid of Win 7... and I find OpenSuse very stable, solid and friendly. I just installed version 11.2 in this old Toshiba Satellite, as a pilot installation prior the final one in a desktop PC.
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop with the following specifications:Proccesor: Intel Core i3 350M / 2.26 GHzRAM: 4GB DDR3Hard Disk: 320GB SATA 5400rpmArchitecture: x86_64The computer has already Windows 7 installed on the C drive whereas there's a D hidden drive with a copy of the recovery image.I'm having trouble to install openSuSE 11.3 as follows:I boot the system with the DVD in its drive. After the welcome screen the process stops using the typical GUI interface and runs a less graphical one. It is at this point where a window pops up with a request:"Make sure that CD number 1 is in your drive"I press OK but the window keeps popping up. Frustrated I hit Back and a red window comes up with the message:"No repository found."I cannot go any further than this point
I downloaded and installed OpenSUSE 11.2 but only screen I see is console, SUSE won't even open.I assume that is an error of graphics card (ATI Mobility Radeon HD3650) or Processor (Intel Centrino 2)The error says that there is niether internet connection nor a driver for graphics card.I was able to work the command "startx" while I was using Ubuntu 9.10 (Ubuntu was not able to install proper graphics card driver too)
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600. Now I can't get the liveCD kernel to boot. I get the first boot menu, but the only thing that works is the Memtest option. If I choose anything else, it will "load kernel" very smoothly to 100%. After that: blank screen with a blinking cursor. In the HCL someone successfully tested this with model with 10.2 and 10.3. I have the 11.2 live CD burned at slow speed. I would expect to see at least some copyright message or anything at all when booting the kernel. I've tried the CD in another computer (desktop, Core2) and it will load everything just fine. I've tried the failsafe and other 'safe' options, no difference. I'm a bit lost here, what could cause it to fail booting at such an early stage ? This laptop has 384MB of RAM and a Trident 16MB graphics card. I'm using it every day, with WinXP so far.
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 onto a Toshiba L30-10W. The built-in speakers work and the headphone jack work, but I can't get the microphone jack to work. I've tried all of the ALSA options (e.g.- options snd-hda-intel model=laptop), but none of them work.
i am trying to install the new openSUSE 11.3 version but i can't install it without setting the ACPI mode to OFF. Is the new kernel support this hardware? (Toshiba Satellite A505-s6033) i had this problem already with Ubuntu 10.4 LTS and i had have to recompile the kernel with this patch: Some buggy BIOS may modify DSDT memory when acpi enabled. So we copy DSDT for safe.
I thought the 2.6.34 kernel already have this patch but it seems i was wrong... So if i will install the system with ACPI on OFF mode i will be need to recompile the kernel with this patch to get things working?
I have a Toshiba Satellite A660 laptop with Ubuntu 10.04. I am sure that the internal microphone works because when I reboot into Windows it works fine. It does not work in Ubuntu instead. I tried three things:
1) Action: I checked all the volumes, made sure that the microphone is not muted and selected the proper device as "Analog Stereo Duplex". Result: no improvements.
2) Action: I installed PulseAudio to better manage the volumes. Result: no improvements.
3) Action: in the Terminal, I executed the line " sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf " and then added the line " options snd-hda-intel model=toshiba " at the bottom of the page that opened. I saved, closed and rebooted. Result: no improvements.
I executed in the Terminal the command " wget [URL]. The link to where data were uploaded is [URL].
Wireless worked fine on live cd, but for some reason not after install. I think maybe the driver is not loading, but I am a pretty much still a noob, so my opinion isn't worth much. If it is the driver not loading, I don't know what to do to fix it. Here is my wireless output information.

I have dell B130 with Ubuntu Karmic on it, and I like it. I recently purchased a new laptop, a Toshiba Satellite A505-S6033. I've been trying for about 24 hours to get Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit on this computer, but to no avail. I've seen some people say that they get error messages. When the cd loads up, it comes to the main page (run ubuntu off disk, install ubuntu, check for errors, etc.) Anyway, when I click to run it off the disk, the scren goes blank. The CD spins, but nothing happens from then on. I've tried a 32 bit version of Ubuntu 10.04, but the same thing happens. Just for experimentation, I tried xPud on it, and xpud works fine.
F13: wireless is disabled - running lspci shows a realtek ethernet 8101/8102 - the wired ethernet works fine but not the wireless. Have searched google but they say the realtek drivers should be in the kernel since 2008.are there other commands that can be typed to try to enable the wireless ?
I've been trying to figure this out all day, I just got a new Toshiba Satellite E205, and I can't install ubuntu or any other linux os out there that I have tried so far. I've read a lot of things on the forms about changing out the different options but nothing I've tried worked such as graffic safe mode, deleting the quite and whatever the other command was off the end. The closest I've got was when I tried with Debian in text mode I could at least see what was happening, and according to that it can't find my dvd-rom I checked the dev but I can't find it either. So any help what so ever would be appreciated, I really don't want to be stuck with windows 7!BTW, it comes with the following: intel graphics media accelerator HD ACPI x64 DVDRAM ga10f
get the wireless working on my mum's laptop as having to plug it into the router everytime she wants to go online is now becoming an issue for her. I recently upgraded it from 8.04 to 9.04. Ive tried using the Windows Wireless Driver option in System - Admin but to no avail.

I have a Toshiba Satellite P100-ST9212.reviously it had Windows XP installed and everything worked. Yesterday I installed Ubuntu 10.04 and the installation went smoothly (video, wireless, usb, etc) and I did all the suggested updates. However there is no audio being emitted. All visual and BIOS indications are that the audio should be enabled and working. I have version 4.20 of the BIOSI looked at this forum before submitting this and found general steps to test for.The following steps all succeeded
aplay -l lspci -v sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel
The next steps discuss getting fresh ALSA drivers from kernel but this implies that it once worked on a previous Ubuntu install which is not true in my case. So rather than chasing down this potential wild goose I thought I would post this specificestion and see if anyone has seen and better yet knows how to fix this.
I have recently installed Ubuntu on my Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 Laptop. Everything runs great except that the resolution will not go above 800x600. I had this problem before on the same laptop and was able to fix it but cannot find the fix now (I had to wipe my laptop clean in order to remove some pesky Windows partitions and reinstall Ubuntu) I have found several "fixes" but none work. I tried the one below as well as it applies almost perfectly to my problem
"I just installed the latest ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba-Tecra having "Trident Microsystems Cyberblade XP4m32" Monitor. After install resolution is defaulted to 800x600. I followed a method advised in some threads (arount xrandr and cvt) to increase the size (my laptop works with 1024x768 under XP). This was done OK and I obtained the resolution 1024X768 appearing in the drop list resolution options of the Monitor preferences but when I select the option if fails. Alternatively, when I execute $ xrandr --output default --mode 1024x768_60.00 i got the message "xrandr : screen cannot be larger than 800x600 (desired size 1024X76
I also saw a possible fix proposing to add "HorizSync 31.50-48.00" in Xorg.conf but I then I DO NOT have such a file in my /etc/x11/ after ubuntu install (supposing that this will fix my problem !!!)
Boot into recovery mode, when you get to the command line type:
sudo Xorg -configurewhich will create a default /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Add the lines: HorizSync 31.0 - 70.0 VertRefresh 40.0 - 75.0to the Monitor section then reboot."
However when I entered the "sudo Xorg -configure" line my computer spit back saying that "sudo" is not an acceptable command
Do I need a certain BIOS for my computer to run Ubuntu? I have a Toshiba Satellite L505. Someone said if I update my bios, it might work. When I try to update my bios, I get an error says something like "The current BIOS settings could not be found" so I called toshiba and they said that Ubuntu might require a certain BIOS.
I'm having a bit of difficulty installing Ubuntu on a Toshiba Sattelite T230 -01Y. Note: if any particulars about this machine are required, I'll be happy to add them. This laptop does not have an optical drive: no DVD, no CD-ROM. I used a USB memory RAM stick (4Gb) upon which I've installed Maverick through System > Administration > Startup Disk Creator. The installation seems to work well. I cut the hard disk (roughly 250 Gb) into 3 partitions: 20 Gb for the system, 2 Gb for Swap, the remainder for /home. The whole setup works as it would on any other PC. Once the setup is complete and the system reboots, it never actually seems to get GDM going. I'm left at a command prompt login. If I leave it long enough (a few seconds), I get a listing that appears over the login prompt, spewing info at me. It sort of resembles the following:
and ch:2, ch:3 to ch:13. Eventually, regardless whether I use the keyboard or not, some kind of screensaver sets in and I can't see any more input-output.If I hit the power button, oddly: the background goes purple displaying CLI characters momentarily, notifying me that the system's going to halt... and the system halts.Any way I can get this going? Do I require the Optical Drive instead of using USB to install the system? I'm afraid all NTFS partitions have been wiped away as the client insisted they wanted nothing to do with Microsoft products.Note: when installing I ask it not to update during the installation as I've had poor results with that. If you feel I should give that a try, I will.
I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 - 64bit install with an A215. The wifi was working fine until today. Ubuntu seems to detect the hardware, and it shows the interface as being 'up', however no networks show up in either the network manager or 'sudo iwlist scan'. I'm not sure if it's a driver issue, or if the hardware itself died.Here is the output of lspci:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 Host Bridge 00:01.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 PCI to PCI Bridge (Internal gfx)
im about to do a major upgrade to another laptop. is there anyway i can backup my entire system, settings and everything, and put them on a usb so i can do a live install but with my customized version instead of the base one? right now im running 10.4 on a latitude 610. upgrading to toshiba satellite
Ubuntu can connect to my network, but it does not connect to the internet. Internet works perfectly on Windows, though. Firefox gives the 'server not found' error. Ubuntu Software Center stops at 37% when 'Updating cache' and then jumps to 95% and then says: 'Internet connection is down'. I disabled IPv6.

i have been working with this laptop for a few days now, started out trying to use 10.04 but saw in a forum that 9.04 worked better ootb with this model box, total noob here but i have successfully run linux on a number of computers for the past 3 years but have never had this much trouble.
It was supposed to improve boot speed, which it did slightly. But Now My wireless card says "Networking Disabled" Is there any way I can re-enable it and keep it enabled after each boot? Is there any for it to be reset back to the way it was?
