Question about Gateway MX6440 Notebook
I recently installed vista on my Gateway Mx6440, upgrade from XP. I had to reformat anyway since i had a system32 error. I figured that the upgrade would be nice. Well after the install the computer does not recognize that i have a sound card. I've installed multiple sound drivers from both gateway and 3rd party clients. And still nothing. Since my laptop is out of warranty Gateway wants me to pay for support. Since this is clearly a fault of the computer and not mine i dont feel like i should have to pay for their faults. I've heard of people fixing this problem but i cannot find the proper method to do so. If anyone knows the correct method to get the sound working that would be great. Thanks in Advanced to everyone.
tl;dr : Gateway Mx6440 Vista doesnt recognize sound.
my sound driver don't work
Did you download and install this particular driver from Gateway:
This is the specific Vista driver for your computer. If you have been trying others, your hardware probably will not work. Hardware compatibility is an issue with upgrading to Vista. You need to make sure you are getting the right drivers from the device manufacturer, and sometimes you might find none available.
