Question about Gateway (G-MAX2000) Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Reconnecting speakers My cousins took out the speakers to our computer and hooked it up to a laptop, which hooked up to the TV to watch a movie, and now the speakers aren't working in the original computer. I went into the control panel and under audio output it said there were no audio devices hooked up. So....how do I fix this? Thanks to whoever helps :D

Speakers won't show up in the device manager, go to the rear of your machine and plug it into the green connector, it should be either lite green or pink, try green first, just keep the volume down till u figure out which on it is

    Restart the machine with the speakers in, did you change any settings when you were fiddling with it?, we can do a restore if you think you may have done something that you perhaps do not remember. If so go to start, programs, accessories, system tools, system restore. Go to the closest date to today that you are sure all was well and let it restore, all should be well when done, Peace, Gym

How can I increase volume for movie viewing?


There's not much you can do in the laptop itself since it's got only a small amplifier built in, and the speakers aren't meant to get very loud. You need to use external devices for more volume.

If you're by yourself, headphones work well. For watching with an audience, you're best off using external speakers which you can plug into the headphone jack. Then you can get as much volume as those speakers can deliver. Or, if you're at home or somewhere where a stereo system or home theater setup is available, you can connect the computer to an available input. You just need a cable with the appropriate plugs on each end.

I'm trying to add movies to my queue. i can't find the add button!!!! can you helo?!! ...


The reason you are having trouble adding movies to your instant queue is because a limited amount of movies can be viewed through instant queue. The new really popular titles generally aren't on there. In fact the majority of movies you want to watch are most likely not on there. You can look at this list to see the most popular movies that are available to be watch on instant queue.

Volume low when watching dvd


Not much you can do about this. The movie industry sets movies to low volume when recording for better sound. They expect you to have the equipment to boost the sound. This cuts down on their outside noise. Only solution for this is to install external speakers as I have done for my movie or TV playing (I installed a TV adapter so I could hook up a projector and display the BIG game outside) but as you say, we couldn't hear it until I hooked up external speakers.
