SOURCE: My recovery CD (gateway 7330gz PC) are no working

I have the same problem with my Gateway 7330gz. My laptop got infected with spywares and it was so annoyed that I have to think about recover the system. So I did it with Gateway Recovery software. I chose the recovery option (press F11 when boot up)from hard drive since my dvd drive was broken. It went well but when it boots up again and Windows XP says detecting and installing the drivers and such, it was frozen haft way through. I turned off power many times to reboot but it kept freezing at that point. I search Internet for help and seen this post. Wonderful! I press F2 to go to BIOS setup screen, use right arrow key to move to Advance menu option. There I use down arrow key to select SpeedStep, hit (-) key to disable it. Then F10 to save and exit, hit enter for OK button. The system boots again but this time it was no longer freezing, the setup process went through ok and continues...I am so happy and type this message so it might help others with the same issue. Thanks

SOURCE: Gateway M-6843 laptop does not recognize hard drive.

The ticking sound is known as the "click of death". After a while the bearings in the hard drive get worn down, and the read head has trouble finding the data you want. In this case the drive puts the read head back to "square one" so it can try to trace its steps back to the wanted data. this makes a click noise. Thus the "click of death". Im sorry to say you need a new hard drive, and that your data is likely inaccessible without drastic measures. One method you can try is putting the hard drive in the freezer for 10 minutes. This will stiffen the bearings and may give you a couple of minutes to grab some data. You will want to have your new drive installed and windows loaded on it so you can readily access the data through a usb to sata/ide cable, which you can get on line fairly cheap. Other options are services like OnTrack, who have a team of engineers who open drives and pull the platters and try to get your data, but you are looking at thousands of dollars just for them to try.

Our system does not generate any sound. If we jack the volume to 30, we can hear faint sound which verifies that the connections are all valid. is there a setting or something that needs to be altered to...

I have a similar problem where I hear low sound (music or tv) even after maxing the volume. Have you tried doing a test tone for all speakers and see if it 'temporarily' resolves the problem. I bought this system brand new since 2005 and this is the first sound issues I am dealing with. What works for me is when I shut it down and unplug it for a minute or resumes operating normally! If you come across a permanent solution, please share and I will do the same. Tks.

Sound plays but very low volume even if plug to speakers and amplifier and full volume, you hardly hear anything. Hoping for a solution. Regards,

right click on the speaker icon in the system tray on the bottom right side of the screen and then click to open the volume mixer then make the speaker sound level to 100 %.

or go to the control panel from there click on the sound or speaker icon to open it after that go to properties and then make the volume level to 100%.

This should help to fix the problem.

Car amplifire when conected to nokia mobile music player and when sound level increases of the mobile device the output sound cuts and plys also plys very low sound

Mobile r not good for playing music in a heavy system because Mobile has not a good sound quality as iPOD and others players have, also all mobile has not a capacity to play with amplifier, and the sound output of your mobile is low there fore u r getting low sound. If your amplifier has its own volume control then u can increase it from there. It is best to use iPOD. Thanks

Microphone too quiet

That's probably not going to work.
Mic level is extremely low compared with line level.
Your sound card is expecting a line level input.
It's simply not made to plug a microphone into (you must be using an adapter or two just to make the connection)
Look for a USB Audio Interface with XLR or 1/4" microphone inputs - these interfaces are pretty generic these days and easy to use ... just plug into your computer via USB and then plug the mic into the interface ... which has a volume control on it ...
I use a Tapco Link.USB ... and like it

Sound plays on my system but i dont hear it at windows

Let's start by checking
  1. Your speakers are plugged into the green connector on the computer
  2. Speakers have power, are turned on, and volume is up
  3. Check your "speaker" icon on your tray (lower right hand corner of desktop) - to make sure volume is up and not muted.

Sound is low

try to see if the wave volume is on and maximum on the volume panel ( double click on vol icon on tray system (right low) ) ...also see if your speakers are plugged into the proper place ...and are not in the auxiliary out or something like this ...they should be plugged into the green middle out ...if they are simple stereo 3,2 jack ..if the problem its still on ..its probably the sound card...(actually the pre-amplifier on it ..)

Low volume sound

I was afraid of that. The speaker system is only half in the monitor the other part(Amplifier section) was in your old computer. Here is a possible solution. Buy an external sound /speaker system. The amplifier comes with it and many can be had at a reasonable cost at **** places as  Walmart , target ,etc. Sorry. but the speakers on  your monitor, I believe ,  will not work with you new computer. Sorry.
