hi, have the same Problem, just don't want to start new topic.
system: Windws 7
toshiba satellite pro p100 (PSPAHE-002001GR)
PCI/PnP: Conexant Cx20549 @ Intel 82801GBM ICH7-M - High Definition Audio Controller [B-0]
the bios is flashed, the newest sound driver is installed. but there is no sound and the microphone doesn't work too. (internal and external- both).. the computer see it, but no result..
one year ago, by installing the system i had the same problems. i tryed some older versions of the driver and it worked. now i lost this file and don't remember the version. and my "experiments" now are unsuccsessful..
with the graphic (NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS) it's near the same- newest driver (188.8.131.5276 - nVIDIA ForceWare 179.76), but every 15-20 minutes the monitor is one "level" darker, so i go to the control panel and intensate the screen brightness manually.. (like in the first case the solution was an older driver).
maybe somewhere is an "depot"?? ))
tried both: 4.22 & 4.23 after installing the sound is ok, but after computer restart - the same thing as early..
gfx: the notebook is not on battery.
all energy saving settings are off..
it's because i think it's the bad driver- and definitely not settings ))
this system came with windows xp first then later shipped with vista.
i have a quick question for you as one of those driver sets should have worked.
did you do a clean install of windows 7 or have you used the upgrade option
and upgraded from one o/s to another
i had it with vista and now i did a clean install of 7
nothing works for me.. will try out some other drivers. after sucsessfull installing will write an answer in this topic.. for this moment i don't have interesting news ((
tnx anyway! :)
if you can't find anything to work try this as a last bid attempt.
reload vista on to the machine, put all the drivers on and make sure its stable.
no need to load any software at this stage.
raw o/s only.
then use your windows 7 disk and upgrade to windows 7
what that should do is make windows 7 look at your installed drivers at point of install, being vista is should be able to tell it can use most of them.
i just had another idea pop in my head over that GFX dimming
go back in to your bios, look over the settings for the power options
you might have disabled it in windows, however you bios might still be the one
thats dimming that screen, its best to check that before you go crazy.
after installing 184.108.40.20666 and the new Value Added Package the gfx works fine.. (but there are not power saver controls in it - toshiba power saver has stopped on windows 7) - it was fine just after installing it- i didn't do anything else.
the combination: driver 220.127.116.1166 (28.09.2007)+ Value Added Package was the solution for my gfx.
for the sound i have no solution yet..
the tosh power saver program is supose too save you power.
IE dim your screen, i just wonder if it was that program that was giving you the problems if its not fully windows 7 compatible.
that a very early driver you have installed, however if its doing all the 3D work that you need thats good enough.
just keep a eye on windows update as it might pick up on the date of that driver and overwrite it with one from microsoft.
so i reinstall the system again for the experiment.
1- registry patch 1.2
2- intel chipset utiity 18.104.22.1685
3- tosh HW setup utility 22.214.171.124
4- texas instr. integr. flash media controller driver 126.96.36.199
5- tosh value added package 1.2.28
the gfx driver 188.8.131.5276 (27.03.2009) was instaled automatically after installing value added package.
the sound i let lay like it was by the installation: 6.1.7600.16385 (13.07.2009)
it was ok. just by the sound - by starting and shutdowning the system there was an click, or "cracking noise" everything else was ok.
after it i installed the (optional) update for the sound Conexant - Audio - Conexant High Definition Smartaudio HD2 (relased in april 2008), from the microsoft. that was the problem. for the sound, but for the gfx too (!)
the sound works like i wrote in post#5 and the display beguinns to be darken again.
after i restored the old sound driver and all problems disappeared.. (the "cracking noise" and darken display).
so, the driver combination, that is working for me is
so really you have the older windows vista drivers running on a windows 7 system.
which would make sense.
the updates from microsoft don't work so stop them from loading again by tell windows update not to show you.
the tosh HW setup utility is a old version as well.
keep a eye on tosh website for a update to that program as that is telling windows update about the hardware inside that machine.
i have tosh Tempro and hope, that it keeps a eye on tosh updates..
anyway it gives me sometimes advises - but for the false drivers/updates )))
if i was you before you go ahead with any updates that come out i would do a full and complete disk image of your working system, that way if things don't work out you can just load up your disk image and go back to a working state.
system restore is ok up to a point but sometimes things get over writen and its always best to have something in your desk that you know works.
