The BA735 system used to come with some models of Gateway computers as part of the package. Unfortunately, they are a digital speaker and had to be used with the sound card provided so they would work. They won't work with the analog output that most computers provide. No special driver software is necessary, but you need a digital output from the computer.
Depending on the sound circuitry of the new computer, digital output may be available. Some higher-end systems with integrated sound may offer it, and it's often available on expansion audio boards that you can install in desktop systems. Check the audio settings menu in your system to see if digital output is provided.
These speakers sounded pretty good. Several times when people who had these systems upgraded, I installed the sound card from their old Gateways into the new computer so they could keep using the speakers. That doesn't work with the latest versions of Windows, though, because the hardware isn't compatible. But if you can find a digital audio source they'll still work for you.
It means no audio driver is installed on your PC. That is the audio device that it is referring to. The audio driver installer came with your motherboard support CD. If it is no longer available you can download realtek audio driver online for free.
The way that we were able to fix the problem was by rolling our sound card driver back to the previous version and then we installed the latest driver for the sound card. Here are some detailed steps you can follow:
Roll the driver back to it's previous version (only tested with Windows XP)
Right-click on 'My Computer' and choose 'Properties'
Click the 'Hardware' tab
Click on 'Device Manager'
Find 'Sound, video and game controllers' and click the plus sign next to it to expand it
Find your sound card and double-click it, this will bring up it's Properties
Click the 'Driver' tab
on the 'Roll Back Driver' button. If there is a driver backed up for
your device it will roll back to that driver, otherwise a message tells
you that 'No driver files have been backed up for this device'.
If there is not a backed up driver for your sound card
you may want to just click the 'Uninstall' button to completely remove
the current driver that is giving you problems.
Install the latest driver from your sound card manufacturer's website
Find the manufacturers website and look for a drivers/downloads area
Download the most recent driver available for your sound card
Follow the instructions from your manufacturer as to how to install the new driver
Reboot your computer to make sure it loads the new driver
Try to play your MP3 or other audio file in Winamp
If these steps do not fix your problem then there are some
additional steps you can take. Some computers have more than one sound
card in them. If this is the case then it is possible that the default
sound card has somehow been changed. To make sure windows is using the
right sound card go to the 'Control Panel' and double-click the 'Sounds
and Audio Devices' entry. Click on the 'Audio' tab and in the Sound
playback area make sure the Default device is set to your preferred
sound card. You could also try using a different sound card in your system if all else fails.
If you are still having trouble with this error you can press
'Ctrl+P' while in Winamp to bring up the Winamp preferences. Go to the
'Plug-ins' section and click on 'Output'. Trying changing the output
from DirectSound output to WaveOut output and then close the
preferences and close Winamp. Open Winamp again and see if it works now.
check device manager desription, and error log.. if all normal (i know its sounds stupid) but make sure nothing ismuted, if there is the third parts realtek aidio manager there, make sure that hasnt muted anything.. if everything is normal and still nothing, try un-installing drivers completely in devce manager, restarting system, and re-installing them again..
