Question about Gateway P-172S Notebook
I have some speakers connected to my laptop but how do I turn them on?
Go to the bottom of your toolbar on the right there is a little icon with a speaker. Right click on that and choose Playback Devices and choose what speakers you want by right clicking and enabling them. Thanks!
