Gateway MX6438 My sound on my Gateway laptop sounds really bad. In the hardware section there are no yellow checks for any kinda hardware problems. Is it possible to have errors on my sound driver. Additionally, my system has slowed overall even after i put one gig of memory into the system. Any solutions?

Won't boot up, fan comes on, power light but nothing else


Sounds like a hard drive issue. Take the hard drive out and put it back in again and try it. Hope that helps.

I have a gateway MX6438 with a persistent DC jack problem. I had the notebook repaired and it started smoking on me not once but 4 times now. I've been told to replace the motherboard, but I'm hoping that...


There's nothing cheaper than fixing the dc jack again, but if it's smoking it sounds like a sinking ship.

Motherboard swap is gonna be the only way out of this mess unfortunately.

Sound


If you have the CD Driver of your laptop, try to install your Sound Driver. Just look for the Setup.exe or if it doesnt have a setup.exe and you want to install it manually, go to Control Panel and open Add Hardware, if your computer detected that the sound needs driver showing a critical icon(yellow triangle with exclamation point). Just browse the CD so that the computer will know where to find the sound driver. If you dont have a CD of your sound driver. Go the Gateway site. This is the support download site of Gateway : http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/ddaStep.asp?Tab=All ----Just complete steps 1-5 and you can download your sound driver.
