    Sound doesn't work after installing Win8

    Hello everyone,

    I have an old Toshiba notebook here, that has always had WinXP Pro installed.
    Lately, I have installed Win8 Enterprise on it, but now the sound doesn't work anymore. I have tried downloading the official drivers from the Toshiba support site, but they don't work.

    Toshiba Satellite Pro A120
    Model number: PSAC1E-04X01GDU
    Windows 8 Enterprise 32-bit

    Doing a google search for Win 7 and Win 8 drivers, I didn't come up with an official Toshiba site. I got driver lists from non-Toshiba sites. This suggests it may not be supported by Toshiba for Win 7 or Win 8. If this is the case you are going to have to try the non-Toshiba sites until you get a driver that works.

    One other thought, if you find a motherboard chipset driver, install that first and then the sound driver.

    Have you been installing the windows updates?

    If not, please do so.

    Your driver may be in the updates...
