Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Audio Toshiba Satellite P100, 10.04?
May 9, 2010
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
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'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)
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 recently installed Ubuntu Natty on my Toshiba Satellite A210-139. Everything works fine except the microphone. I can hear a crackling sound also when I record using Sound Recorder, but it's not too bad. The big issue is with skype, where, besides an annoying, loud white noise, the receiver hears me quite intermittently. I tried many things. Firstly, I played around with Alsamixer and Pulseaudio with every possible combination. Didn't work. I also tried what seemed to solve the problem to many users: replacing
Code: load-module module-udev-detect with Code: load-module module-udev-detect tsched=0 in /etc/pulse/default.pa
I've been trying to get this sorted for days. I'm trying to use this older Toshiba Satellite 1800 as a kind of Internet Radio kiosk. Sound was working in Xubuntu but everything was too slow so I switched to fresh minimal install from the mini cd and used the guide from psychocats to install IceWM. No I have _no_ sound. (It works perfectly off of Knoppix 6.0.1 live cd.)
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.
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 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?
I have two brand new (less than 60 days old) Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7016. Neither will boot the live CD of 10.10-64, but the CDs work in other computers and I have installed successfully half a dozen times off of them. I get the initial text across the top, there is a momentary splash of the Ubuntu logo with a little battery symbol, then the screen goes black with a little flashing prompt in the upper left. That is all it will do until I hard reboot it. I made the USB boot off the CD and tried that. It never gets beyond the initial text "syslinux 3.82 2009-06-09 EBIOS ..etc".
I re-installed 10.04, replacing 10.10 and everything works fine on both laptops. Several hours later (something really needs to be done about how long it takes to upgrade) when the new upgrade is complete, it will no longer boot. Of course the default GRUB menu choice is 2.6.35-22. I assume this is the kernel number. If I pick 2.6.32-25 it boots just fine and "about" says that I am running 10.10, so I am just baffled. I know how to set GRUB to boot of this option by default, but i would like to fix the problem, not put a band-aid on it.
In case someone else has this model, it uses an audio chipset I have not seen. Win 7 reports it as "Realtek High Def audio" AND "ATI HDMI Audio". Ubuntu lists two, one generic Internal Audio, the other RS880 audio device[Radeon HD 4200]. What makes it odd is that if you want to use the head phone jack to connect to an external sound system, you have to turn it on with software inside Windows. In Ubuntu, there is no corresponding software so when you plug something in, the internal speakers turn off, but nothing comes out of the headphone jack.
Today I bought a Toshiba Satellite Pro L510 and after much screwing around I have Ubuntu installed kinda. Installing Ubuntu is generally a breeze and I have three machines running 8.04 pretty much rock solid unless I fiddle with 'em, but; I download and boot from a 10.04 LTS cd and gets to the new purpley splash with a couple of icons down the bottom, then goes into endless full-screen terminal scrolling and the computer heats up. So I tried 8.04. Not much different. I try 10.10; same as 10.04 LTS. So I try the alternate installer rather than desktop but that crashes too. I finally find a website suggesting to run the alternate installer, hit F4 and choose 'failsafe graphics' (which wasn't there for me) and then F6 and select everything but 'Free Software Only'. Hey, worked and I get through the text based installer no problem, restart and I'm looking at a grub2 menu and can select Windows 7 or Ubuntu. Cool.
So I select Ubuntu but goes to a text based, command line Ubuntu. Hasn't loaded a desktop. I try to 'sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop' from the CD but after much scrolling tells me not there. It is telling me I have umpteen updates I should get and asking me to insert the CD, which is fine as the machine is not online, but then can't find what it's looking for.
So I've gotten this far. My router is not set as a DHCP server; all machines have static IPs which is why this new one is not online. Would the simple answer be to plug it directly into the internet gateway router and do the updates from there, ubuntu-desktop included?
I've been having a lot of trouble connecting to my Wireless Router. It worked fine when I had XP on it, so it's not the actual inbuilt WLAN. I put in the correct password, it's MAC address is registered on the router, yet it will constantly query me for a password despite it being put in correctly. I've tried searching the forums for any similar issues, and their concurrent fixes.
I'm trying without success to install 10.10 on a Toshiba Satellite A665 from a USB drive. It will start to boot then gets stuck on: NET: Registered protocol family 1 I've tried different iso's and different usb drives.Other threads have mentioned that setting acpi=off might work but
I just installed lucid in my laptop (Toshiba Satellite L-650) and no networks are available. I cannot connect to the wireless network. Therefore I tried to connect with a cable directly from the router (and this works in a different computer with windows), but no networks were available either. Here is some information.
I just bought a Toshiba Satellite P745-S4217 to replace my Dell 1420 that had the NVIDIA defect. I would like to replace winblows 7 with ubuntu soon but before I do I want to see if there are any issue with the compatibility of ubuntu and this Toshiba that need to be addressed before I dive in so that it will be a faster and easier transition.
i just installed ubuntu yesterday, first time trying linux, and i like it a lot. The only problem i'm having is that some screens move really slow on the browser, like if it still needs a video/graphic drive to be installed. For the sound i was trying to play some mp3s, and i downloaded all the drives online like it asked me to and now when it plays sometimes it's normal and sometimes it sounds weird, and sometimes it lags. Sorry if that's a noob question, but i was wondering if there's and easy solution to that.
So, help me through getting my audio working properly on my Toshiba Satellite A105-S2081 Laptop. I think I've been through most of the help messages and tried many things to get it working correctly. The ONLY thing that has helped is to go to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and change model=auto to model=generic. (options snd-hda-intel power_save=10 power_save_controller=N model=generic)
I've tried model=toshiba, model=auto, model=lenovo, model=3stack, model=dallas and the laptops internal sound device disappears from the list of sound devices. If I plug in my Logitech Headset, it seems to work fine.It also seems to work fine if I boot it up into XP SP3.It does work now generally with model=generic, but not sure that everything works properly, like the headset & microphone jack. (Actually the reason I have the Logitech Headset is because the headset jack doesn't work).
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 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 )?
