Portege M600 - Volume icon has a red cross on it

Q: Portege M600 - Volume icon has a red cross on it

Dear all,

I am in dire need of help to fix my laptop sound card. My laptop (TOSHIBA M600 on windows vista basic as its original operating system) has been working perfectly for the last 3 yrs. Just about 3 weeks ago the the volume icon on the bottom right hand corner of the screen had a red cross marked on it. I am no longer able to listen to online lectures, music, videos etc. I opened the device manager and found no such things as Sound, video and game controllers. This happened after one of my friend installed a faked windows 7. Since then i decided to buy and re-installed a legal window 7 professional, but the problem persists. The volume icon at the bottom of the screen still has a red cross on it.

Some kind people out there please help me...i am a student and cannot afford it to be fixed by those expensive computer genius in the computer store. Also....please use simple lay people english when you give instructions or help.

Thank you so much in advance

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi buddy,

Usually such a red cross means that there is a no sound driver installed or driver is muddled up? Have you already tried to reinstall the sound driver?

What sound card you have installed?
Normally you can get all drivers on official Toshiba website but for an older model like yours I could imagine that you must check other pages. For example if you have a Realtek sound card, check the Realtek page directly: www.realtek.com

I have had on-going sound problems with my laptop and feel so frustrated - please help!

I have downloaded the sound driver (abt a million times - and tried uninstalling then reinstalling) - and repeatedly get no volume icon on the desk top and a message saying "no sound driver can be found".

I did manage to fix it once - when i had WIndows Vista installed - by finding some obscure patch - but this time around - no solutions.

Can anyone help - it is so frustrating!!!!

A:Sound problem with toshiba portege M600

Simple thing to do as you just got it so you don't have huge thing to backup or not at all simply do a fresh install of Windows 7 on your laptop. It is better to do fresh install rather than making an upgrade.

Also you may try to install the latest driver for you sound card.

The display backlight is off and will not turn back on. I can see the laptop when it's directed to a 2nd monitor. I can see very faintly the desktop on the laptop screen- except it is dark. I have tried all the software fixes I can find in this forum but nothing works.

One suggestion I have found that the switch that turns off the display when the lid is closed is stuck in the off position. This makes sense but how do I locate this switch.

Is it incorporated in the display panel hinge?

>I can see very faintly the desktop on the laptop screen...
Have you noticed this from the moment when you switch the notebook ON (Toshiba welcome screen and BIOS settings)?
I cannot say for sure but I?m afraid described problem has nothing to do with software but with FL inverter. Maybe is FL inverter defective and must be exchanged.

Hi,

I am using Toshiba Portege M600 with windows Vista.
When I am reboot my lap top I am not getting any sounds.. In the system tray the volume icon button is marked with X and when I mused over it syas that " No audio output device is installed.".I tried all the option like uninstall the sound driver and reinstall it. When i checked in the device manager under Sound,game and controller I am getting Realtek High definition audio driver with exclamation sign. When I tried to update the driver it shows that "This device cannot start. (Code 10)".

Please guide me to resolve this problem.

A:Portege M600- No audio outout device is installed.

I would try:

1) Update the BIOS and set it to the default settings.
2) Uninstall and reinstall the sound drivers. Look for updated drivers on the Toshiba Website.

My Portege M600 has a re-occurring problem.
After some time in use the screen suddenly shows columns about an inch wide and various colours.
It looks like stacks of varicoloured coins.

The speakers emit a loud screech at the same time. We have to hold down the OFF switch for some seconds to stop the computer. It will then start up normally but of course everything we were working on is lost.

On some days it does that around every half hour!
Other days once or twice a day. Some days not at all.

I feel it could be something to do with overheating.
I have the back of the laptop raised to aid air-flow. Laptop is usually used on a desk.

Is the M600 worth repairing?
At what cost maybe?

Regards,
Robmac

A:Portege M600 - Jagged screen picture and loud noise

Hi

An higher internal temperature cause notebook crash and yes, the symptoms described in your post above could be caused due to high temperature.

Did you ever clean the fans in the past?
Would recommend doing this using an compressed air spray. The dust inside the cooling vents might prevent the air from circulation and this leads to higher temperature level.

Of course the high temperature might be one of possible reasons causing this problem? however, check if cleaning the fans would help.

I don't use any third party connection software and don't have any third party firewalls running.

I am plugged in direct to the router with an ethernet cable.

This isn't a massive problem but i'd prefer the icon not to have the red cross on it.

Ive been using W7 since the early builds and am on HP 32bit these days.
In the past if i lost internet connection i would get a red cross on the network icon. This would go away once connection was restored.
This past week or so this cross keeps appearing. Thing is the connection is fine, no problens what so ever.

Anyone else experienced this. Please no "Clean install" replies, thats way to drastic.

Thanks for any help.

A:Nework icon has a red cross on it but connection is fine

It sounds as though it could be a driver issue. On the odd occasion when I lose connectivity, it's only to the Internet so my icon just shows a yellow triangle with the exclamation mark superimposed on it. Fortunately, my router automatically reconnects if this happens, so I'm not down for more than about a minute.

As your board is based on the NVidia nForce 570 SLI MCP, you could try to see if these drivers might help (make sure that you create a restore point prior to installing) NVIDIA DRIVERS 15.53 WHQL

Hello melb1946Does your keyboard have volume buttons? I know in my experiences I have sometimes run into similar scenarios. In my case the problem was accidentally hitting the volume button on my keyboard. How is your sound setup in Windows 7? Is your monitor set as the default sound device? Do other sound devices increase their volumes?Probably one of the best ways to isolate the problem would be to put the monitor on another computer and see if the sound continues to appear and go up.

The sound volume on my R500 (R500-11c to be exact) is ridiculously low. Only with volume maxed out (100) and using headphones do I hear anything at all, and even then it's way too low to be useful. I can just make out the test sounds in the left and then right earphone when using the test sound found at Control Panel -> Sound -> Speakers (there are no Headphones to be selected) -> Properties -> Advanced -> Test. Unplugging the headphones I hear nothing from the speakers, due to the (very low) sounds made by the fan and HDD. Playing music (with headphones) I can just make out that sounds are being produced, but I can't even make out what is playing.

I've tested the things mentioned in the "Satellite 5105-S901 Sound is very low (even on max volume) using supplied Toshiba driver" thread with no success (including Loudness Equalization).

I'm running Vista Business 32bit, and have tried the driver_audio_realtek26117B.exe, driver_audio_realtek_TC00157600B.exe, and Vista_Win7_R243_x86.exe driver files, and also used the util_mute_off_25847B.exe utility.

Enabling mute makes the already faint sounds go completely silent, so I don't think it's a mute issue.

Jack detection does work, I can see that in the Realtek HD Audio Manager program. Using that program's sound test (Speaker Configuration) I have to go to a completely silent room, and even then I only hear something in the right earphone.

Hi

According to your message, you have already tried to increase the volume using all possible options?
Did you try to increase the volume in control panel -> Realtek HD audio manager??
Check this?

You have also tried to update the Realtek sound driver?.
Did you use the one from the Realtek page directly?
Check this!

If this will not help, you could test the notebook with new recovered system?

But if this will not improve the volume, then this could be a hardware problem?

Hello,

My Dell-VOSTRO laptop is kinda in a weird situation now with spyware, and hopefully someone can help me fix this. It's been bugging me for the past 3 days. The problem is on desktop bottom right corner, where the volume icon and msn icon are, there is always a round red icon with white cross pops up something like this:

"Your computer is infected!

Windows has detected spyware infection!

It is recommended to use special antispyware tools to pervent data loss. Windows will now download and install the most up-to-date antispyware for you.

Click here to protect your comupter from spyware!"


I know this is a spyare spam try to trick you to install their program and not a real windows warning, so I haven't clicked it yet. but I just can't get rid of it. I've tried quite a few things, but nothing works.

There is also a weird thing is that I can't run HijackThis on this laptop, I even renamed it to "Fumble" as someone previous suggested, but it still won't work. Once you double click on the icon, nothing happens. Therefore, I don't really have a HJT log to post. I did follow the steps to run a Panda virus scan and attached the log. Hope it helps in some degrees.

Someone, please help me on this to get rid of that red round icon with the white cross spyware or let me know what need to be disabled to get HiJackThis running to produce a log for you guys.

Thanks a lot in advance!

[Sound Utility to Turn Mute Off |http://support.toshiba.com/support/viewContentDetail?contentId=1671893&pf=true] and unzip it using WinRAR or WinZip
You will find a small file called 'MuteOff'. Run this file as administrator and check if your sound would work.

Note: All drivers should be installed as well as the Realtek sound driver.

Feedback would be appreciated

Windows 7 32-bit won't play sound.

Device Manager\Sound, video and game controllers\High Definition Audio Device ok.
Double click and window says:
High Definition Audio Device Properties\General: Device status says This device is working properly.

Speakers are plugged in and make a crackle when plugging in to correct holes.

Mystery?

A:Sound/Mixer icon has red cross. No Audio Output Device is installed.

If it's shown as "working properly" in the Device Manager, the speaker icon you have can also be because the sound is muted.

You show "High Definition Audio Device" rather than the actual sound device which suggests you have the generic Windows/Microsoft installed sound driver rather than the actual sound driver from the motherboard vendor. In many cases the generic Windows driver does not work or work correctly.

You can try and uninstall/reinstall by RIGHT clicking on the entry for the sound and then LEFT click "Uninstall" (DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers) then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This fixes a lot of flakey problems.

If the uninstall/reinstall does not fix it, the next step is to get the correct sound drivers and install them.

Hi all,

This question is specifically for users of Toshiba Portege Z30s. Mine doesn't show a network icon in the taskbar so I was wondering if another Toshiba app is supposed to manage the network. Also, nothing happens when I go to Control Panel - Network and Internet - Connect to a Network.
Just wondering if other Z30 users are facing the same issue.

Thank you.

A:Portege Z30 - do you have a network icon in taskbar?

It looks like you have already started a same discussion about this theme in another thread here in the forum:
https://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums//thread.jspa?threadID=81599

According to forum rules, its recommended to follow the discussion on one thread to avoid misunderstandings.

By the way: I guess this is an software issue and mostly system recovery solves such software issues.

Howdy everyone, am in a bit of a pickle and would appreciate some pointers.
The past 2 days i have lost the sounds of my operating system, cannot stream audio and have lost my volume icon from the taskbar.

I am however able to listen to CDs through itunes, media player etc and can watch DVDs fine. It is just there are no sounds on windows start up and games etc and no streaming audio on Youtube, Myspace etc.

I have tried many things, obviously ticking, un ticking the box in control panel etc. Have tried system restore, been on kellys korner or whatever its called, looked up the problem but i need XP driver disk to reinstall sounds card. I dont have XP driver disk.
aswell i tried downloading new soundcard which didnt work. Was clutching at straws really.

i think some kind of codec i downloaded started the problem. My "show desktop" and Thunderbird icons have also disappeared from other side of taskbar.

My system is XP Pro, a Compaq Armada M700 laptop. Soundcard is a ESS Maestro 2E
Im usually pretty good at solving these kinds of problems, have been googling this for ages tho to no avail

if anyone could help that would be great

thanks
Henry

Hello everyone,
There is a strange problem I am facing for quite a long time. Whenever I get connected to the internet using a dialup connection, the connection icon which used to come in the taskbar doesn't come. Also when I connect usb devices there is no device connection icon in the taskbar. The strange thing is that when I go to control panel and load "sound and audio device" and tick "place the volume icon in the taskbar", both internet connection icon and usb devices icon appear in the taskbar. Whenever I reboot the system, the volume icon disappears again, needing to re-tick the "place the volume icon in the taskbar" in the "sound and audio device". This is really annoying me. Kindly help me.

Hey Guys,

I removed the AC Power cable for a split second (battery was 100% at the time) and my computer just shutdown.
I replugged and rebooted and now I've got a "red cross" next to the power icon in my system tray (see attached image)

If I put the mouse over it - it just says "Fully Charged 100%" and shows my current power plan; which is "high performance" and been using it since I got the laptop.

I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium on my HP Pavilion DV5.
Computer's about a year old now.
I've update all my drivers and checked Device manager and there are no errors/warnings for anything battery related.

Any suggestions on how to get this fixed or what the problem might be?

A:"Red Cross" on Power Icon + Shutdown when AC Power removed.

Your laptop is not detecting your battery. Try removing the battery, and putting it back in.

You might have to buy a new battery.

It's very odd. It just appeared the other day and I have no idea how I caused it. Usually that means no output device detected, but it is detected and sound works.

Hovering over the sound icon it says:

Volume: 100
Speakers
Realtek High Definition Audio

The volume control won't display.

This is a different problem. My volume icon disappeared and the computer no longer makes sounds and I can not hear online applications like You Tube.

If I download a file I can play it back and hear it just fine.

I have checked the volume tab so that is not it and I'm out of ideas. I can not find the original disk to reinsert the driver. This is a dell and I have SigmaTel and the troubeshooting tells me there is nothing wrong with it.

Help please.

Running Windows XP. My volume icon disappeared and the computer no longer makes sounds and I can not hear online applications like You Tube.

If I download a file I can play it back and hear it just fine and I can play items in Windows Media, Quick Time, Real Audio, etc.

I have checked the volume tab in the control panel so the problem is more complicated then that. I can not find the original disk to reinsert the driver. This is a dell inspiron 9400 and I have SigmaTel and the troubeshooting tells me there is nothing wrong with it.

I have run all my virus scans and Malware programs.

Any ideas.

The icon only appears when the sound driver is installed and working.

What sound card do you have? When did the problem start and did the sound ever work?

Does Device Manager say anything useful?

how do I get the icon to appear in the task bar. The "show volume icon" box is checked in the sounds and audio window.

A:volume icon

Right click the task bar

Click "Properties"

At the bottom there's a button called "Customize..."

Click on it, and in there you can decide which icons XP should:

- Always hide (So you can hide an icon you only need sometimes)
- Always Show (For the volume, you want this)
- Hide When Inactive (when nothing is happening with this process, XP hides the icon.)

They are otherwise hidden behind an arrow. You can click this to expand it and view the icons.

To always view all icons, uncheck the "Hide Inactive Icons" check box in the "Properties" menu.

My sound volume keeps disappearing from my task bar. I am running xp home media edition, I do not have the cd just a restore cd. In my control panel in sounds it has a check next to show in task bar. My task bar is customized to always show volume icon. If I restore to an earlier date it will come back, if I boot up and go to last good configuration sometimes it works the first time if not I do it again and it will put my sound icon back. Once the icon is back the next time I shut down or reboot it is gone again. I don't have any virus or trojans. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. Lisa
