Gaetway laptop speakers will not work.

My Gateway laptop internal speakers were working fine before I plugged in my headphones. after I unplugged them the speakers would not work. I restarted my laptop 3 times, and I also made sure that the volume was not muted. I also tried a system restore. Is there anything else I can do?

    Plug  then in and out several times to tey to get the plug jack to go back to the original position. Failing that you may have to replace the plug jack

Hi plz help me i am using IBM r51 laptop which has all drivers but not able to get sound of it. but when i connect a headphone i can get sound of it. but my laptops speakers r working as i tested mt...


ibm sound card is not faulty, because you are getting sound with your head phone. The head phone jack have two functions 1. to give output to head phone 2. to disconnect internal speakers when you plug in head phone.
The jack for headphone in normal position not give connectivity to internal speakers.
SOLUTION : REPLACE THE HEADPHONE JACK.
I think it will help you.

Crackling and hissing sound either on speakers or when using headphones. Speakers work fine on another laptop. Only happens on my Gateway 5260 desktop.


It's probably related to the drivers. Go to Creative Labs website and download the latest driver package for the specific card and OS you're using. They'll walk you through how to identify the exact model of the card if you're unsure. Hope this helps.

Apparently the built-in speakers have one bad. You can have the speakers replaced for you at a good computer repair shop if you cannot affort to send it in at this time.

My left speaker on my gateway ML3706 laptop just stoped working


If you get sound from both sides of the headphones when you plug it into the same jack the speakers normally plug into all you need to do is replace the speakers. If you mean you plug the headphones into the cd drive that's nothing special. You could have a bad sound card, bad connection in the jack, or bad speakers.

Speakers have stop having sound


1. Please plug in a set of speakers or headphones known to be in working order.
a. If the known-to-be-in-working order speakers or headphones work, your existing speakers are faulty.
b. if the known-to-be-in-working order speakers or headphones do not work, your existing speakers are fine, and your sound card is faulty.

If the sound works on you headphones the either your built-in  speaker(s)  is/are  bad or more likely the headphone jack itself is broken and not making contact in the speaker position which is fairly common.

Gateway laptop internal speakers do not work.


Unplug your headphones if you have not already.

Open device manager. You can do this by right clicking on your "My Computer" icon on your desktop and then selecting properties at the bottom of the menu that comes up, or by going to Start>Settings>Control Panel, and then opening the "System" icon.

Once the system properties tab is open, left click on the hardware tab. Now left click the Device Manager button.

On the device manager window, look for an entry that says "Sound, video and game controllers". Left click the + box directly to the left of this line. It will open up any devices you have in this category. Within this list, your sound card device should be listed. It may say something like "SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio" or something similar.

Right click this device and left click uninstall. It will prompt you if you are sure you want to do this, tell it yes/ok and the driver will be uninstalled at this point, leaving ou with the device manager open still but without your sound driver listed.

Now, close all of your open windows saving any work you may have open, and reboot the PC. Upon reboot, the system will automatically reinstall your sound card driver. It may prompt you if you want to do this, just tell it yes/ok as you need to, to continue installing this driver.

Once this is complete, your sound should be working normally again.

Stereo Speaker troubleshooting


It sounds like the audio jack itself has internal damage. Depending on how it is mounted on your laptop case, or possibly on an internal circuit board inside the laptop; it might be possible to repair the jack or replace with a new 1/8" audio jack. Some soldering skill may be required after disassembling the laptop and getting access to the jack.
