• Laptop speaker problems (Toshiba)

    From Karakondzula@VERT/REALITY to All on Tue Mar 3 01:28:37 2020
    Hello community,

    I've been searching all over the net and I couldn't find the solution to my problem, so here it is, maybe some of you can help me out. I have Toshiba L750 Satellite laptop which served me fine for some time, but I have a strange problem with its speakers turning off all of a sudden. I took laptop to repair, they couldn't diagnose any kind of malfunction. I also did try reinstalling the drivers, even OS (I am currently using Windows 10 and Ubuntu, and there seemsto be a problem on both systems).

    Do you know what could it be? Any suggestions, even far fetched are fine :)

    Most likely a corroded or damaged speaker cable. See http://www.irisvista.com/ tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L755-L755D-L750-L750D/dismantle-laptop-1.htm for more info.

    I am guessing you mean the internal speakers .. have you tried plugging in a set of external speakers?

    One thing that is nicer in more modern forums is the ability to thumbs
    up (or similar) to an existing post. Was going to say the same.

    You're new to Synchronet message voting I guess? :-)

    Currently in thunderbird(nntp), saw the voting module though. Guessing
    the vote/thumbs up are the empty messages I've been seeing in
    Thunderbird now and then.

    You can vote from within the stock Synchronet message reader; no additional module is needed, though I did make a voting booth door for Synchronet, for poll votes. And yes, I believe the empty messages you may be seeing are vote response headers.

    There are 2 types of voting in Synchronet: You can upvote & downvote normal messages, and there are also polls, which are questions with several choices of an answer.

    They should not appear as messages via NNTP. If they are, that would be a bug.

    I haven't really investigated, just know that occassionally I'm seeing a completely empty message body... It could be a thunderbird bug.

    There were one or two messages with only a tear and origin line in the last day or so. If that's what you saw, it's not your end. But if there was absolutely nothing, then I'm not seeing those, and you may have found a bug. :)
