Sound problems on my gateway laptop

My sound on my Gateway laptop sounds really bad. In the hardware section there are no yellow checks for any kinda hardware problems. Is it possible to have errors on my sound driver. Additionally, my system has slowed overall even after i put one gig of memory into the system. Any solutions?

My gateway m305crv has a yellow questionmark next to PCI MODEM what does that mean and what can i do to fix it


That means the driver is not working and or there is a problem with the firmware. You can go to Gateway, updates and downloads. Find the drivers for your model computer and download the drivers you need, which should fix the problem. If you have upgraded to a different OS, windows XP to windows Vista or 7 ... You can check for system drivers for these systems, or operate in the mode of you old OS but it sounds like a driver problem.

You may need to go onto the system board and reseat the connection. It could be loose. Maybe a drop or some type of sudden impact caused it. If that doesn't work then your LCD inverter is going bad and you my need to replace the LCD screen.

No sound driver working on my gateway notebook pc


Did you check the Device Manager, the audio driver, has it a yellow ? against it or is it OK and enabled? If it is has the MUTE button been ticked?
If it has a yellow ? against the audio driver then the correct audio driver was not installed. Go to the Gateway Support/download page to download the correct XP driver for your model laptop's audio device and install it.
If the sound still doesn't work check Device Manager to see if the driver was installed and working.

If you have the CD Driver of your laptop, try to install your Sound Driver. Just look for the Setup.exe or if it doesnt have a setup.exe and you want to install it manually, go to Control Panel and open Add Hardware, if your computer detected that the sound needs driver showing a critical icon(yellow triangle with exclamation point). Just browse the CD so that the computer will know where to find the sound driver. If you dont have a CD of your sound driver. Go the Gateway site. This is the support download site of Gateway : http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/ddaStep.asp?Tab=All ----Just complete steps 1-5 and you can download your sound driver.
