Click on Start>Right-Click My Computer>Click on Properties>Click on Hardware Tab>Device Manager. You will see a list of all of your hardware devices. Look for DVD/CD controller and click on the "+" sign to show the make and model of your DVD adapter. Right click on it and click on Troubleshooting. While you are there click on "Update Drivers" also, see if there is a new driver. Try doing the same thing for Video and Sound. Let me know how it turns out.

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

There is a book, a friend of mine bought a copy and basically is a Vista 64 problem. It will not allow you to use unsigned drivers without typing in a line of code. It has so much useful data and allows you to tweak Vista just the way you want it and unlock features Microsoft doesn;t even tell you about. The info on the book is below. I'll try to get my hands on a copy and post your solution. Do check the book out, it's probably available through your local library. Here's that info:

I have pondered this situation for a bit and really am kinda stumped! Usually, things work or they don't. I would suggest that you check for a hardware diagnostic program in your computer, such as Dr Watson. I have included a link to the gateway support page for your notebook.
If you know the manufacturer of your hard drive, you can go to the manufacturer site and look for download link and find the hard drive diagnostic program that most manufacturers offer to check their hard drive functioning.
You can also chat with a gateway technician and they may have some idea about this issue if they have had this complaint before.
I am sorry I could not be more specific.
