: (Please excuse the cross-posting: I have posted to every forum I have ever
: found an instance of this issue mentioned in an effort to tie everything
: I am hoping someone out there has resolved the following audio issue with
: the Toshiba Tecra S1 laptop.
: Multiple instances of the problem have been posted across the web and I have
: referenced five of these below.
: Audio is working fine, then:
: 1. 'Slow' sound (like a tape played half speed or with flat batteries) from
: system speakers and from headphones via headphone jack.
: 2. This is for sound produced by any application: WMP, MusicMatch,
: RealPlayer, Windows start-up and shutdown, PowerDVD - anything!
: 3. The sound source can be a .wav, .mp3, realmedia, traditional music CD or
: a DVD - anything!
: 4. Eventually no sound at all comes from system speakers or from headphones
: via headphone jack.
: 5. However, if one 'jiggles' the headphone plug in the headphone jack, sound
: (still 'slowed') comes from headphones or system speakers but sound is one
: channel only (i.e. not stereo). This is hard to maintain as one must hold
: the headphone plug with pressure and jiggle it about in order to make this
: See the five referenced posts below for other descriptions of these
: FIX ATTEMPTS:
: .. I have uninstalled/reinstalled drivers and devices (CD Drive/Modem/Sound
: .. I run Win XP OS.
: .. I have booted with all services disabled.
: .. I have run the DirectX diagnostics and disabled acceleration.
: .. I have made sure I have not accidentally tripped Win Media Player's
: 'speed' setting.
: .. I am running the latest Toshiba Tecra S1 BIOS.
: .. I am using the latest sound card driver and have uninstalled/reinstalled
: the driver.
: .. No warning triangles in Device Manager "device is working"
: .. Every other aspect of the Tecra S1 is working fine.
: US have no mention of this issue on their site.
: Toshiba Australia have told me by phone that, irrespective of the multiple
: instances of this unique error, they deny any problems of this kind with the
: Tecra S1.
: ANYONE KNOW MORE?
: Obi Wan, Yoda, The One, Anyone? Has anyone resolved this issue?
: Please let us all know via these forums.
: Fingers crossed! :-)

: Here are multiple instances of Toshiba Tecra S1 owners experiencing exactly
: the same symptoms. Each complaint is clearly just a different way of

: I have a Toshiba Tecra S1 with XP Pro. The laptop is
: playing all audio too slowly. This includes MP3s on the
: hard drive, CDs, DVDs & streaming, and it happens on
: whatever media player I use. Strangely enough, it only
: happens about 80% of the time, and occasionaly works OK.
: Toshiba don't have a clue, and I have updated the sound
: card drivers and de/reinstalled the media players, but it
: still has the problem. Anyone got any ideas?
: The audio is playing as if it were a tape player that was
: low on batteries, so al voices sound much lower than they
: really are!

: The sound was working fine after the installation of the

: Dear all,
: I need some advice on this. I have a Toshiba Tecra 1.5 GHz, 512 Mb.
: Recently the sound/music is playing up in that:
: 1) with the fist boot up, every bit of sound/music slows down by half.
: Kylie Minogue sounds like Frank Sinatra.
: 2) But with a reboot, the sound playback speed returns to normal!
: However, this happy state of things didn't last. Now the sound/music
: just stays half speed."

: "I guess this is more a software issue but I haven't come across it on
: any other machine, ever. When I reboot and sometimes on a cold boot, all
: sounds are slow on the machine. That is, music, voice (on VoIP phone),
: windows bootup music, videos etc all play around half speed.
: A shut down and reboot usually fixes it but I haven't been able to
: figure out the problem. I have the latest BIOS and all the latest
: drivers. Am running XP Pro that came with the machine.
