Question about Gateway GMAX 2100 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

I mistakenly shorted out the subwoofer when I connected the wrong adapter to it.Heard a snapping sound, so I'm assuming it shorted out. Is there a fuse inside that can be replaced or am I going to have to replace the whole thing. I haven't opened it up yet until I find out more about it. Thanks for any & all help.

I accidentally plug my Wii that I got from US from 120v to 220v. I got the converter but I mistakenly plug it to the wrong voltage:(. I heard the poop sound. Did I burn the power adapter or the wii it...


You have most likely cooked the Wii itself, To check connect the correct power adapter to the correct system and in the correct power source ( 120v or 220v ) if it works all good if not you know you cooked it. If you are unable to test in this manner have it checked by a qualified technician.

Kicker comp 12'' subwoofer swingarms snapped


when you say swing arms i assume you are talking about the wires connecting the terminal (where you connect the wires to the sub) to the voice coil (the center of the sub).


If these are broken it is tricky to solder new wires back on. If your sub is still under warranty i would suggest sending it back to them. below is there number and business hours.

Im trying to install a new radio into 1997 Ford Expedition w/premium sound. However I cannot get any sound. I have the wriring harness.


Hello... I am sorry to hear you are having a problem I am assuming that you are using a wire harness adapter to interface between your factory harness and the aftermarket radios harness. If the aftermarket stereo has a blue/white wire, you need to connect it to the blue and the blue/white wires in the adapter harness. This will turn on the amplifiers. If your aftermarket stereo only has a blue wire, then use it as the connection with the blue and blue/white on your aftermarket harness adapter. Hope this helps. If you need any further assistance, let me know!

We have a desktop computer((Model: GATEWAY 838GM) misplace the ADAPTER for the CPU which one to get please thanks


sallyduby we may have some confusion here.

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.

CPU does not refer to a Personal Computer. At least not since the 1960's, and not unless you wish to confuse someone with the wrong reference. ;)

This is Gateway Support > Gateway 838GM Desktop PC > Main Support page,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/5389/5389nv.shtml

In the list click on Components.

A) There is no adapter device for the CD drive, or DVD drive, unless this is a mistaken reference to the flat ribbon data cable

B) There is no adapter device for the Harddrive, unless this is a mistaken reference to the SATA data cable that connects the SATA harddrive to the motherboard.

C) There IS possibly an adapter for the Keyboard, if you are using a Keyboard with a USB connector on the end of the cable, and are not using the original Keyboard that has a PS/2 connector.

Example;

http://www.directron.com/freeusbps2.html

D) There is no adapter for the Media Card Reader, unless this is a mistaken reference to the data cable that connects the Media Card Reader to the motherboard.

E) There are no adapters for the Ram Memory module/s.

F) There are no adapters for the Modem. The Modem plugs straight into the motherboard.

G) There are no adapters for the Motherboard, unless a USB mouse, or again a USB keyboard, is being used.
The same style of adapter for the USB Keyboard will also work for a USB mouse.

H) There is no adapter for the Power Supply, unless this is a reference to a power cable adapter that could go to a computer case fan, from a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

(The 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, and it's connector, are shown in the middle photo.
The Harddrive example/s shown is an IDE {PATA} harddrive. This style of Harddrive uses a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable)

I) There is no adapter for the Intel Pentium 4 CPU {Processor} (3.0GHz, 800MHz FSB)

The motherboard has an LGA 775 processor socket.
The Processor has the socket holes, while the processor socket has the pins.
775 socket holes, 775 pins.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_775

Unless this is a mistaken reference to the Fan/Heatsink combo that sits on top of the CPU.

Typical Fan/Heatsink combo example of Processors (CPU's) using an LGA 775 processor socket,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2943299&CatId=493

(Except the Gateway version is square)

J) No adapter for the Speakers unless I am mistaken.

Post back in a Comment, and give at least a general description of the adapter you are referencing to.

Regards,
joecoolvette

Subwoofer


turn on the amp and you know that the amp is good and you hear nothing
1. paralell wiring on speakers that are the wrong impedance very often will silence speakers to a eternal sleep along with that amp.
2. 4 ohm speakers mistaken for 2 ohm and are 8 ohm speakers mistaken for 4 ohm, the amp sees this load and it causes a overload on either side of the amp internal filter
( that's what makes the "pop sound") amp pops inside, literally makes a "pop" sound
you get a no sound

Very Quiet Subwoofer - amplifyer problem?


Hi there,
Yes, it is fixeable, but you can carefully check this,
1) open the SUB, and see if any cable is broke or loose in the negative and positive poles.
2) check if there a loose cable on the terminals point of attach speakers.
3) other than this is a defective AMP inside and mus be change.

Sunfire Subwoofer 110 Noise on input plugin


A few more questions-
Does the sub hum without anything plugged into it except for power? If it makes a real loud hum almost a squeal then I think the rca cable between the receiver and the sub is dead shorted and needs to be replaced. If it's more of a low level hum, then it's a ground hum caused by many things, ie........the receiver and the sub being on different power circuits in the house.......sometimes diconnecting the cable tv feed as it enters the room while the sub is connected and humming to see if it stops........the easy fix sometimes is using a 3 to 2 prong ac adapter but lifting the ground on such a powerful amp could be a fire hazard.
