    i have a gatewaymx7525...which laptop website do i go to?

  • kcastro_joy Dec 19, 2008

    removed it and re-intalled through gateway and the sound is still distorted at the beginning. I find that after everything is done loading, such as videos on yourtube..the sound is ok. just annoying to have to wait and makes it terrible to use itunes or windows to play music. any other help?

Hi there,

Try updating/re-installing your audio drivers from the laptop website, or from manufaqcturer's website. Also, update your Chipset drivers.

Hope that helps

Sound Problems

You need more RAM. RAM is what the PC uses to "Buffer" any signal, if you do not have enough RAM then it cannot store it and play it fast enough, thus it skips..

Gateway laptop skips

Make certain it is the correct media for the drive. If it is CDR or CDRW media, make sure it is rated for the write speed of the drive. High Speed media for a High Speed drive is labeled with the High Speed logo. If you are testing with an audio CD, play it in your home stereo first to make sure the disc works.

Check also the disc if it has scratches that's why it skips when played. Try a known good CD.

When Palying a CD Music skips (Media Player)

Greetings my friend, regarding on your problem try to check or clean your CD/DVD ROM. Try to clean it with disk cleaner cause sometimes we forgot to cleam the important part of CD/DVD ROM its eye the one that reads all the dat in the disk. So try to clean it and play the disk again after you clean. Also try to clean also the disk you want to insert in your CD/DVD ROM in order to prevent this problem again.

When i burn CD music to my laptop and try to play it back every track skips towards the end of the song. . .

play the cd on a cd player....

does it skip toward the end of every song?

If so, the cd is being ripped to your computer that way; that would explain why. If that is not the case, maybe try a different ripping speed. If the ripping program you're using has that option
