I have had this happen to me! What you are going to want to do is: Go to My Computer Right click your dvd drive (mine is "D") Left click Properties Click the tab on the top that says Hardware *It should show you all of the disk drives on your computer* Locate your DVD drive depending on the manufacturer--click on it Now that it is highlited, click Properties Click the Properties tab at the top of the box Make sure that the volume level all the way to the right If there is a check box saying "Enable sound" or something similar to that, check it If there is a check box saying something like "enable sound for DVDs" check it This should work, if not, respond again to this message! -Mster714-

I formatted my HDD and installed Win XP and updasted to SP3. Now I cannot play music on my CD Player. I am missing an audio driver and have worked for hours trying to find and downloadf one to make it...

In most cases, you will have a compatible version of audio driver in your motherboard utilities CD. So the first thing you have to do is, check for the audio driver in that CD. If you can't find it, you may download an audio driver from the following link:

XP got reinstalled on my computer and I dont have the audio driver so my computer doesnt play music and doesnt recognise the computer

You need the audio Drivers.
Go here:
This is the support site for the Gateway Computers. There wasn't a listing for the E-4000 so i used the E-4100, it should work just fine.
Download the most recent Audio Driver and install it. Restart your computer and that should fix it.
Hope it was helpful.

Audio cuts in and out - i installed a new real tech audio driver from the gateway support site, and the problem is the same, a cd, or mp3 will play perfectly, then the sound cuts out. when it comes back on...

Check your speakers, try switching them for something else before you do anything, if it still doesn't work then it's either a software or hardware problem. Hardware problem: I bet your audio card is integrated in your Mobo which means you can't just reset it and completely reinstall the firmware. Software: Go in your control panel and into your sound and audio devices then select the material tab. Then select the Realtek High Definition Audio codec and uninstall it before you reinstall the drivers.
If that doesn't work call Realtek customer support and explain your problem, they will probably have some magical arbitrary trick to fix your problem.
Hope this helps, please rate and testify.

GT4016 freshly reformatted with recovery CD. No drivers. No connection (to internet). Where do I find the driver (to download and burn to CD) enabling my GT4016 to connect through ethernet?

Here is a link to the drivers you need:

Be sure to download the audio, video, motherboard and modem drivers. Just put them on a san disk or equivalent media storage device. When you have installed the drivers check the device manager to see if anything else is missing (a yellow question mark next to a device name). Hope you get fixed.

Dvd-audio cd burning issue

If you are burning a "Data Disc" (the burning software should tell you or have you select it) then music will NOT work on a CD-player. It will only work in another PC.

Data disc is for files, pictures, videos, music that you want other COMPUTERS to be able to read and play.

If you want a music CD to work in a car or something like that it NEEDS to be burned as a music disc, not data.

Hope that helps.

Do you have to have "Secure Disc" installed before you can burn CD's? How do I transfer my music from windows media player to a disc using the external burner? Sorry, I'm computer challenged. ...

hi frankie;
you can use third party software to burn your songs into the disc or you can use the built in burner of Windows. What operating system are you using? some things you need to check before burning:

1. cd-rom capable of burning?
2. is it a cd rewritable or a dvd rewritable?
-you can use cd-r or cdrw on dvd rewritables but not dvd-r/dvdrw on cd rewritable.
1. locate the songs you played on your media player in your computer,highlight it and right click one of the highlighted mp3 then select copy from the list
2. Insert the cd into your optical drive ( cdrom or dvd rom).
3. Open My computer and double click your optical drive icon.
4. Right click on the empty space inside that window and right click mouse then paste
5. There should be a link at the left side of the window that says "Write these files to CD"

***frankie; i would just like to remind you that the music burning im referring to is mp3 music, if you want to burn audio cd, you need 3rd party software for that.

Some cd players(discman, etc.) only play audio music format and not of mp3 format. Provide me details of what you want to do and i will help you. :)

Sound card wont play root media files

Hi Hughdog
well, Biostar mobos are know for a lot issues, but depending too, on the OS, windows XP I presume, go on safe mode, and uninstall all audio drivers, and disable on the BIOS audio. then start the PC, and install the audio card. or if is a internal audio reenable again, redetec the drivers, and install them according to the CD and drivers. you should see the play device now and play music correctly.
good luck
