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.

Gateway M-6340u laptop won't boot


the gateway hang indicates to things either a bios problem or a failing hard drive,sometimes when hard drives start getting old they take a while to spin up and/or has difficulty finding the boot sector,you also have corrupt files which would indicate a failing hard drive.

Try just restarting your computer the hard drive will already be warmed and spun up so the Gateway screen may pass faster.

Try running this prog to diagnose a failing hard drive,it will run in the background so just uninstall it your drives fine.

On the bios side the only thing I recommend trying are loading optimised defaults and Safe defaults.

Gateway- built-in laptop Speakers not working


Seems to me the speaker is just plain broken. You'll need a new one, contact your vendor for repairs, or you will have to live with using external speakers/earpieces...

I hope you will get your replacement,

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.

Gateway- built-in laptop Speakers not working


Heat dissipation from the unit in the same area of the speaker assembly, especially since you stated that the RIGHT speaker was smoked. Similar problems occur with this design flaw with any manufacturer as HP has the same problem with some of their models.

Your heat exhaust is killing the speaker, and I would also bet that your chipset is AMD and not Intel, the latter having solved it's heat dissipationn problems.

A more aggressive heat dissipation solution on the motherboard or redirection of the exhaust past fewer heat sensitive components would be a design goal.

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.
