Question about Gateway M-6340u PC Notebook

1 Answer

My Gateway m-6340u has interference coming through the speakers

I just bought this machine, have installed nothing, and right away the speakers began to hiss. I've tried to disable the mic on the webcam, control the sound levels - nothing seems to really matter.

I read an online review of this model, and it says that this is a great "budget machine" but it has 2 problems:
1. no fire wire port
2. interference problems in the audio.

Most computers have some interference in the speakers, but this is exceptionally prominent. Any ideas for solutions?

sylvester thanks you in advance.

The only way i know of would be to take the laptop apart and improve the ground from the motherboard to the chassis, since this is probably where the problem is coming from in the first place.

First of all test your speakers with another source such as a portable CD player if the sound comes then there is a problem with speakers

Then check the connectors of the speakers and after checking the connectors try changing the cables of the speakers.

After checking the connectors and cables now re-seat your sound card and move it to a different pci slot

Farthest away from PSU It might be possible that once the load on the PSU gets
higher its interference field gets larger!

Also note that if there is a cell phone near your speakers or the sound card? Any device
that reaches a certain frequency will cause a constant clicking noise.

Hope the above information helps you.

I have an ongoing buzzing/interference sound with these speakers - THey are new - I bought them because I thought it was the old speakers that I had which cauused the problem, but it persisted with these...

Sounds like electrical interference. If you can, try moving the speaker wires. They are like antennas. They might help to find the offending device. Otherwise try moving electrical devices away from the speakers and wire. Do it one device at a time so you will know which one is causing the problem.

After i install wireless router linksey model wrt160nv3 i get that that clicking sound inmy right speakers.

Just relocate the speakers, try moving them away reception and transmission gadgets, the wireless connection just like celphones emits interferences picked up by speakers,
this also implies like when you put a mobile phone on top of a speaker and then someone calls, the speaker sounds off distinct sound patterns.

Static only

If you have anything electronic move it away from the speakers it can cause interference. Then clean the plug for the speakers into the machine as well as the port. The way to do this is with electrical cleaner. Put some on the end of the jack and with the computer and speakers off spin it in the jack to clean it.

What you are doing is OK. The problem is when you re-start the wireless card has lost it IP address and when you switch it off and on again the router issues the wireless a new IP address.
You can also get the router to issue a new IP address by right click on the wireless Icom on the Task Bar and left click on Repair.

Problems of this kind CAN be caused by a driver that has been scrambled by Windows.
Try the following, it may not help but won’t get you in any worse condition than the one you are in.

- Open the Control Panel
- Select System
- Click on the Hardware tab
- Select Device Manager
- Find and open Sound, Video and Game controllers
- Find the driver (check manual) used with your audio system and delete it (remove)

Reboot your system and, if there is nothing else amiss, it will ‘find’ a 'new' device and re-install the software controlling your on-board audio.

If this doesn’t help, then you are likely dealing with a hardware problem that only Gateway can (at excessive cost) ‘cure’ by replacing the main board.
