Re: No sound device
It sounds (no pun intended) like the drivers for the audio device
didn't install. That's NOT uncommon with Gateway Restore CDs. I would
advise checking the Device Manager (I can tell u how 2 get there, if u
don't know) for any yellow exclamation points. If you see one,
right-click it and then click Uninstall. Reboot the PC and you should see
a dialog about new hardware found. If you have the Drivers CD that came
with your PC (most of the time, anyway), stick it in the CD/DVD drive.
When Windows tries to find drivers it *should* look to the CD.
If that doesn't work, let me know and we'll go from there.
Unless this fixes your problem, please don't rate my answer. I have
other steps to assist -- and "thanks for trying" is not my goal.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You may need to download the software for the sound card, it is not part of the program in many recovery disks, go to the support site for your computer, Dell, HP, whatever the manufacturer is and load up software and driver downloads by the model or service tag number of your computer. Also go tot he start menu (lower left of tray) and click on "Control Panel", in the next window click on "Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices" then check to see that the volume is turned up on the sound or it is not muted.
Hi, had same problem.... unscrew the remote and carefully remove the back end part of the stereo-connector (very careful !) it consists of a very small switch which moves sideways..... this switch is stuck into headphone-modus. Reassemble and it will work again Note that speakers will work if you remove the switch
Open your sound contol monitor (the speaker icon in the system tray) and makes sure there are no checks in the boxes for audio output. Also make certain the audio out device is set to your sound device. eg "realtek HD Audio" or whatever your PC sound card is. Make certain the slider buttons are about half way up for the Audio output. If your sound card is installed ok. your sound should now work.
You are using one sound device at a time, this is not possible, if you like to be able to hear from headset and play music on your pc at a time, you must have a USB Amplifier and Headset (eg: GN Netcom, Avaya, etc...)
first you must set your Media Player's Option to Devices>Speakers>Audio device to use> DirectSound of your PC.
The other one is your are using a program to talk to other people, that program also has a feature to select the Audio devices to use, you must select that other device like my example above.
Go to control panel and audio settings. Go to the voice tab and you can set the audio settings for your headset. If you have a sound card on the computer, the microphone jack is light pink and the sound jack is usually orange or green. Green is the color of the front channels and is usually shared with the headphones by using a splitter. The orange color of the headphone jack on some headphones is indicative of an aux. output such as the center back speakers of a 7.1 surround setup. If you have a USB set up, make sure to load the drivers and follow the prompts.
Are you sure it's plugged into the right jack? Most computers have two green audio jacks in the back. One for speakers and one for a headset. If you plug it into the headset jack it won't work. Try the other jack maybe? If that doesn't work then try them with another computer. Find out if it's the computer or the speakers. If it's the computer then you might need a driver for it or just a new sound card.
if you don't have the correct audio driver on your recovery discs and can't find them on gateway's web site there's one other thing to do - make sure you are current with your windows updates. in most cases i've seen, driver updates for most devices will be included in these updates - i rely on it a lot of computers i work on, especially gateways since they are annoying to find drivers for.
