Hello,Please help. My Gateway computer has no sound,yes,I have a sound card installed. Messenger services has stated to me that another program is using my sound card. I has done an extensive search and cannot find that other program. Can anyone help me,without me copying all my files then eraseing all my files and down loading them again,in fear of losing some of them,after I reinstall all my programs and applications again. I am just ok with a computer and my terminology might not be accurate.
Thank you,

There if u find any question mark or exclamation mark in yellow Color that means sound drivers are not installed properly

There is no sound ..it is gateway desktop D4840 series


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this
right click to install driver also
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
if his does not fix the problem

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps

I got a virus and it seems to have erased my sound card program from the PC and no sound comes out from the speakers even though all messages say its working fine.


'Restore' the computer to a prior state where the sound driver worked. Look for the 'Restore' options in the 'Help' menus off of the 'Start' button on the lower left side of windows.

Finding a sound card for my gateway laptop to be able to record audio


A sound card is a piece of hardware, and if not included with your laptop, you need to buy one and install it.

It is possible that you have a sound card, but it might be disabled in the BIOS. You would need to restart your computer, and enter the BIOS setup program to check if you have a sound card that is disabled.

You can go to gateway website and their website will tell you which hardware is installed

My speakers are not working. The computer came with Realtek speakers but not with the normal jack. I believe it is a USB jack which I plugged into two USB ports above where the jacks would go. I'm not sure...


Check if your computer has a sound card available
Check on the back of your computer
Power up you set of speakers, some speakers doesn;t work without power
Check the speakers connections (between them)

No Sound


did you install anything before this problem started? if yes try to uninstall it. if not, check device manager if your sound card drivers is still installed and if it is enabled. to go to device manager right-click Computer then click Manage. look for device manager then sound.

if it's enabled and there are no problems to the sound card go to control panel then Hardware and Sound. click on sound then check if the default digital output device is selected and enabled.

if it still won't work last option is do a system restore. set the restore date before the time the problem happens.
