Then go to control panel,system ,hardware ,device manager option There if u find any question mark or exclamation mark in yellow Color that means sound drivers are not installed properly please reinstall sound drivers properly
If no question mark or exclamation mark then check the cable connections of the speaker to the machine
In control panel , select sound audio devices open it there u have volume,sounds,audio,voice,hardware options

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 settingsthere 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 don
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
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)

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
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.
