Ive installed Hardy on my L30-134 PSL-33e Toshiba. I'm having all sorts of problems. Audio, Graphics, video playback, hung aps, you name it I'm getting it. Have I got the right version installed or is HH just not compatible with this laptop? Please I realy like the idea of not having to rely on Window and I would like a working version of Linux.....
I've installed the latest x86 distro, should I have installed the 64bit.

How much RAM do you have? I have the same sound card as you and sound works perfectly on my laptop(also a Toshiba). Don't install the 64-bit because you have a 32-bit processor.

There's 512Mb of ram but I don't believe the problems are related to the ram.
Perhapse the installation is corrupt or something.I don't know.

Did you try reinstalling? Also, do you have all the Gstreamer codecs installed?

Its a clean install fully updated and Gstream codecs are installed.
Is there any sort of out put file I can bring up like an error log file or similar?

log files are at system/admin/system log (or /var/log from a terminal)

Did you try lspci from a terminal to see if most of your hardware is correctly recognized.

Also, what are the specific problems with audio, video, etc..

When you say Flash plugin do you mean Browser plugins.
Here is a list:-

Default Plugin
Demo Print Plugin
DivX Web Player
Helix DNA Plugin: Realplayer G2
ITunes Applicator Detector
Quicktime Plugin 7.2.0
Shockwave Flash
Totem Web Browser Plugin 2.22.1
VLC Multimedia Plugin (compatible Totem)
Windows Media Player Plugin 10 (compatible Totem)

It looks like your system is recognizing the key components of your system... what exactly do you have questions about...
to say that nothing is working, audio, video, etc, is just too generic for us to help you!

Ok I'm getting somewhere, but very slowly.
Ive been messing with /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base,
The speakers are now working, also the headphone switch is working, but I still don't have any audio from the headphones.
Ive got a USB audio device which works (drums on insertion) but no audio output, and it does not switch the main speakers of.

I have video working now, ATI drivers and Catalyst Control Center are installed and working, but still having problems with artifacts in the display, especially on boot and shut down.

And now the audio has changed back to working on the headphones and not on the speakers.... Go figure...:confused:

My advice is if you have a Toshiba Satellite audio problem look here first.

No speaker audio, no headphone audio
or a combination of the two.
And if your wondering about the way I've set out this post/? it's to make it easier for people to find if they are using the search tool.
I had terrible problems trying to find a solution to this problem, if only people would write the exact problem in the post somewhere.
