SOURCE: sound card
here's my solution to your problem..
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.
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... :)
