Question about Gateway ID5815H-CA LX.WC502.003 Notebook
Original Drivers installed after reinstalling windows vista, but modem and audio are not listed on the device manager. Running the driver's setup (downloaded from gateway) results on a window message that no device is installed. Audio was working fine before reinstalling windows. Maybe its taking the HDMI audio as default?
Have you done ALL the Windows updates? Is/was the Windows Vista a OS upgrade? Did the Laptop come with Vista? Take a look here: http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2353

The notebook i assume has the realtek sound chip, but at the moment their site is down so click on the link below and download the Vista sound drivers and see if they work for you, but it could be that your motherboard manufacturer does not yet have any supported sound driver for Visat. http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/SOUND-CARD/REALTEK/

SOURCE: Gateway 450rog Audio problem
I have just re-imaged a Gateway 450 ROG for a friend of mine on the website the audio driver is found (http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?st=pn¶m=3501353) under the heading Sound Downloads. This unzips a list of files C:\cabs\9520522
stac97(control panel extension)
stac97 (setup information)
1. From the Start menu, click Control Panel.
2. In Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance.
3. In Performance and Maintenance, click the System icon.
4. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
5. In Device Manager, click the plus sign (+) next to Other Devices, and then double-click Multimedia Audio Controller.
6. In the Multimedia Audio Controller Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver.
7. In the Hardware Update Wizard dialog box, click Install from a list or specific location (Advanced), and then click Next.
8. In the next dialog box, click Search for the best driver in these locations, and then click Include this location in the search.
9. In the text box, type: C:\CABS\9520522. Click Next.
10. Click Finish.
Now once installed sound only comes from using the headphone jack, the external speakers get a little sound if the volume is turned up to maximum.
Hope this helps

Did you upgrade to Windows 7 or did the computer come with it? If the computer came with it and it stopped working try running the restore disk and restore to factory default. If you upgraded to Windows 7 your stuck because not all vendors provide drivers that support that version of Windows. You can try running the device in compatability mode but that really doesn't work that often. Check with the device manufacturer for updated drivers.
