I have a Toshiba Tecra A2 1.6Ghz laptop. I am having a lot of troble
with its sound card. It is a SigmaTel STAC9750TG which appears in the
device manager as a SigmaTel C-Major Audio. I am running Windows XP
Professional and have fully updated my system.
My problem is that most times I start the System windows cannot start
this device. Or if it does start it sounds distorted. I am using the
drivers supplied by SigmaTel version 184.108.40.20635 and have reformated
and reinstalled from scratch. I have search the Toshiba site for any
clues but this laptop looks to be no longer supported.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have been working on this problem for a bit and I decided to try an
older version of the drivers and not to patch XP. However on going to
Toshiba site I have found that they have changed the sound card
drivers. While it still says SigmaTel in the specs the new driver is a
Realtek AC'97. I am a bit confused by this but happy because I now
appear to have a working sound card.
