I accidentally plugged my earphones into the "line in jack" - now the computer screams if I don't plug into the "line in". I can listen with ear phones in the correct spot - but don't want to always have to. Can anyone advise on the screaming toshibas?
My correspondent is in Morocco and is transmitting intermittent sound from his Toshiba netbook via wi-fi. I have had him on Skype video (poor quality) but the sound is brutal. When he moves the netbook, there is a screaming sound that modulates as the netbook moves. We have tried to talk without video. No joy! I don't have the model etc but it operates on Windows 7. It was a new netbook as of Oct 2010. It was working fine in Egypt and Tunisia (he got out just in time). He has gone to a new headset/microphone without success. I have suggested he contact Toshiba but he is computer illiterate and is afraid to make changes, believing it will affect his ability to e-mail. He has gone to a Moroccan computer shop without sucess.
