SOURCE: sound card


here's my solution to your problem..

solution (1)

1. click right mouse button on My Computer Icon
2. navigate to Properties
3. click on Hardware Tab
4. click on Device Manager


5. if an exclamation point is present on the highlighted text then your computer have a sound card but the device driver is not installed... if this is the case, then search for the driver.

solution (2)

1. Select Start
2. Click on Control Panel
3. Click on Sound Speech and Audio Devices
4. Click on Adjust the System Volume
5. There should be 2 tick boxes
click on the lower box to display the volume icon in the taskbar..

this is only applicable if there's a sound card present or the sound card device driver is installed in your system.

If this post does not help please include the Gateway model of your pc... it is much easier to look for a driver if you can provide me with the model...

hope this post can solve your problem... :)

I was looking at buying a stanley lock S836-171. Do you have to use the key every time you use the gate? Or is the key just to lock the gate when on vacation?

Hi maraleequanb... I do not know this lock personally but according to what I am reading you do not have to use the key every time, only if you want to lock it while your away. I have found this quote about it on a website along with some others you might be interesting in reading . Please take time to rate me thumbs up **************************************************************************************************************** "4.0 out of 5 stars Great Gate Latch - Installation Instructions lacking, May 4, 2010 By M. D. Heidenreich "DIYWhenICan" (Dayton, OH USA) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME) Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Stanley Lockable Gate Latch With Dual Access (S836-171) [Misc.] I installed this gate on a 6' tall by 4' wide cedar gate latching to another smaller gate section. The smaller one has the post the larger side has the catch. The ability to push a button and open from the inside was the key selling point for me, being able to lock it is secondary but still will be nice when on vacation. We had one similar but we had to drill a hole and run a string and half the time manually latch the gate. This latch solved that problem completely. Gate now shuts and latches without a hitch. Now to the installation instructions: First - DO NOT USE the little grey PVC tube unless you have a hollow vinyl post - would of been nice if this was in bold print somewhere in the instructions. I tried to use it on the wood gate and spent 45 minutes on it before I finally found the teeny tiny writing saying not to use unless on vinyl. Second: I typically do well with pics. in instructions rather than a bunch of drawn out written explanations - not so with these instructions. From the look and my experience you could install on any gate set up so chances are you can make it work. I read other reviews complaining about the plastic and was prepared for that but was pleasently surprised with the solid feel and sturdy construction - time will tell but if it lasts two years, for the money, I'd say it's money well spent. My 4 stars are due to the instructions not the product. "

Soundcard is going out. Can it be replaced or upgraded?

Most likely, you have an integrated soundcard on the motherboard. Most laptops have an integrated, soldered chip on the motherboard. The best bet for an upgrade is buying a pcmcia or usb soundcard. A pcmcia souncard is easier to put into the sytstem and not think about it. Better external soundcards are connected via a usb cable. What makes this better, is that there is no electrical interference with the soundcard functions. Of course, this is only an audiophile purist issue. You can find an example of each card by looking at SoundBlaster laptop soundcards as a reference. They make both.

Find driver
is the page of computer drivers for hp, but they have a bunch of stuff mixed up. <br><br> If you are running Vista, here are some missing drivers:

HP 3D DriveGuard

HP Quick Launch Buttons

InterVideo WinDVD 8 SE (DVD) Player

<br><br> HOWEVER, please let me know if you are running a system all factory installed, or if you had these devices upgraded to something different (new soundcard or display card). Also, are you running Vista or XP or something else, and (PCs... geez!) what Service Pack that OS is.
Meanwhile, look around   You might find what you need.

Sounds to me like you are missing the drivers for the soundcard...the drivers are basiclly the software thatallows your computer to communicate with the hardware (in this case the soundcard).

What you can do is download the drivers and install them , which should get you your sound back!

You can download them here:

you dont have to use 2 soundcards because the system will only use 1 soundcard, putting 2 soundcards will just cause chaos to your system. anyways, you could use a special kind of soundcard to have great results.

Speakers not working

It's not your speakers that you need to get the drivers for, but rather the soundcard inside your computer.

you can approach this one of two ways- use the driver discs that came with your system, or download upgraded drivers from the soundcard manufacturer's website.

Downloading Drivers-

If you have a prebuilt made by a major manufacturer (such as Dell, eMachines, HP, Compaq, or Acer), and haven't added a soundcard since then, you will need to go to their website, and download audio drivers from there.

if you have a Custom-built (otherwise known as a Clone) computer, for example, one put together by a specialty computer store,- you will need to find out what your soundcard is, and go to the soundcard manufacturer's website. (if you are having trouble figuring out what the model is, look inside your computer- it should be labeled on the card itself, usually engraved into the circuit board, or on a white sticker)

If you are using an onboard (Integrated) soundcard, go to your motherboard manufacturer's website, and they should have a driver listing there.
