Question about Gateway 310 X (310XSP) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Installing Sound driver

I reformated my computer, and with it went the sound driver. I do not know what sound card I have in order to find the appropriate driver. I opened the computer and looked for a sound box. I'm not very familiar with what I'm looking for in there. I saw a small box there that said foxconn, which is on the inside of where I plug in my speakers cord on the back panel of the computer. I also tried looking in the device manager but nothing is installed there. Same with DXDIAG in the run command, no sound card info is given there.
What I did see inside my computer is a bunch of stuff written on the motherboad, I assume this is the motherboard module: E210882
How can I find which sound card I have?

Even after installing many sound drivers i am not able to hear sound from my pc. pls tell me how to know which sound drivers will fit to a sytem


The first thing to do is identify what is your sound card chip. You can see it from motherboard manual book (if its on board sound card) or you can found code on sound card if its add on. Some sound card chips will wrote the code above the transistor just like CMI87*** for C-Media or RTL*** for Realtek Audio.

But there is a more practical way is to use Unknown Device Identifier that you can free download the software here. You only need to run the software and it will search all existing hardware in your computer. You can easy found what is your sound card and install the right driver.

My sound went out and now is saying no sound card


This means 1 of 2 things. Either your Sound Card is fried, or the Sound driver is corrupted.

1. First, check that your driver is installed.

Click the start menu and right click on "My Computer" and click "Manage". Select "Device Manager" from the list on the left, Scroll down to "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers". Expand that list, if you have any errors (Yellow Triangles, Red X's) there, you will need to reinstall drivers which can be obtained HERE.

2. Install a new Sound Card in your computer. This will be a PCI-type Card. There are cheap replacements which can be found HERE.

Install new sound card. Creative tech


Before you install the sound card, you install the drivers for it. Drivers are small 'pieces' of software, that allow the Operating System to 'communicate' with the device. If you did not, then No, Windows did not recognize your sound card.

(In essence. Read on) (Not to insult your intelligence. Windows XP, is an example of an Operating System. So is Vista)

In this instance, the device is a Sound Card. Those drivers are on a CD, that should have been provided with the sound card.

Reasoning that you install the drivers first, then the Sound card is this,

When you install a device, Windows 'recognizes' it, as soon as Windows starts up. Windows 'breaks it's neck' to hurry up, and find drivers to match the device. If there are no actual drivers, then Windows chooses from Thousands of Generic drivers it has, and matches one up.

This is No good. The device needs THE drivers for it.
Then the owner comes along, and installs the drivers later. (Or in your case, didn't)

This causes a driver conflict.

BUT, you didn't indicate you installed the CD, therefore didn't install the drivers, and Windows is using the generic drivers. Crappy quality results.

Suggest you do this. Computer off, and unplugged
from the surge protector. Press the Power On button, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of Five seconds, then let go. (And I mean Five at least. Count, 1001,..1002,..1003,..1004,..1005)
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS error codes, and resetting your BIOS, back to the factory default setting.

Computer unplugged, computer case open, touch the metal frame of the computer case. (Work on a table) This will relieve your body of Static electricity. Your body always carries static electricity. Static will silently fry out, your delicate computer hardware components.

Now take the sound card out. Leave the case open, plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, then turn the computer on. When Windows has fully loaded, install the CD for the sound card, Follow the instructions.
At the end, if it asks you do you want to restart your computer, NO!
Close all windows, until you are back at your desktop screen. Shut your computer down normally. (Start>Turn off computer>Shut Down)

Unplug the computer from power. Forget this part, and you may be buying a different computer.
Install the sound card. Close the computer case. Plug the computer back in. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on.
Now how's your sound?

    I dont have any sound coming out of my speakers.


    It means that the driver for your sound card is not yet installed. Right click on MyComputer icon then select properties. Click on Hardware then click on Device Manager. Under Sound and Audio Device, look for anything that has a yellow question mark. Right click on it then select Update driver or Install driver. Get the driver CD that came with your computer and install your sound card.

    Hope it fix your problem.

    No sound driver


    You will need to go on the DELL web site and try and download the sound drivers, under the Driver downlads. You will need to know what model you have in order to find the correct drivers. Let me know if you need help. I will require the model number of the computer and also if i's onboard or if it is a card inserted into the motherboard, known as a PCI sound card.
