On my left control panel my audio control buttons


I was doing a clean up of my system and I might have deleted something, but I am not sure.
On my left control panel my audio control buttons do not work I have a gateway m505.

Now I have to manually go in and adjust my volume.

Is it a driver, or something I have to reinstall?
Thank you.

I have no sound. maybe my computer has been muted


Check that sound drivers are ok as follows
  • Open your start menu (right-click on the "Start" button and choose "Explore"), and find the "My Computer" icon. Right-click on it and choose "Properties" from the submenu. Click on the "Hardware" tab and then the "Device Manager" button.
  • Expand the "Sounds, video, and game controllers" heading to find your sound card. The name will depend on what sound card is installed on your PC. It will most likely have a name containing "audio." It should look something similar to the example above. You'll know immediately if there is a major driver error because an exclamation point (!) will show over the card's icon.
  • Double-click on the name of the sound card to open a new window. In the new properties window click on the "Drivers" tab. If there is no "Drivers" tab then you chose the wrong sound device. Go back and try again. On the "Drivers" tab, click the "Driver Update" button. Follow the Wizard's onscreen instructions to update your driver. You can also contact the manufacturer of your PC for the most recent audio drivers. They can usually be found online.
if the drivers were OK, proceed as follows
You can check the system volume and adjust it as follows

Cant get sound to work


Hello welcome to Fixya, there several reasons that can cause the sound not to work on your computer.The first thing you should do is to check the volume on your computer to make sure that the volume is up and if you keyboard has volume button make sure that the volume is up.If you done all of this and still can't hear no sound please go to the manufacturer website and download the sound drivers for your computer. You can also download the sound drivers from other websites such as:
http://download.cnet.com/1770-2120_4-0.html?query=sound+drivers&searchtype=downloads&rpp=10&filter=platform=Windows&filterName=platform=Windows&tag=ltcol
http://en.kioskea.net/download/drivers-135
http://www.driverdownloading.com/drivers/Sound_Card_Driver.html
Please remember that if you see the word audio drivers that also mean sound drivers.
Thanks for choosing Fixya

Microphone des not work


There are two items you'll need to check. First, when you boot your system press the Delete key to enter the bios. Open the Advanced tab.
Make sue your Audio is set to [Enabled].
For windows XP operating systems check within windows Device manager. Click the start button, open control panel. Double left click on the "System" icon to open. System properties window will open. Click on the Hardware tab than click on the "Device Manager" button. Scroll down through the icons until you come to: Sound, video and game controllers. If there is a problem with the driver you will see something like. Unknown pci controller or simple pci controller. If you do not see something either of these than there is nothing wrong with your driver software. Make sure you setup your microphone. Open the windows "Control panel". Than open, "Sound and Audio Device". Click on the Audio Tab. Under, "Sound playback" the Default device should read as; Realtek AC97 Audio. Now click on the Voice Tab. Under "Voice playback" the Default device should read as; Realtek AC97 Audio. Lastly, you need to click the "Test hardware" button. Follow the instruction from windows. It wouldn't hurt to check windows for updates. If you still do not have use of the microphone than the intergraded sound controller is defective. This can’t be repaired. You can disable the intergraded sound controller in the bios. Than buy a PCI sound card and add it into an opened PCI port.

Hope you find this helpful.

No sound


There are a few things you'll need to check. Boot your system & press the delete key or F1 key to enter the bios menu. See page 32 and page 33 in your manual. Make sure the HDAC Audio Controller is set to, Auto.
You'll also need to read page 41. Paragraph 2. The notice of Intel HD audio installation (optional). For front panel audio header setup see page 21. Also see Connecting I/O Devices page 24
When you finish checking all the settings make sure you check windows for updates. Choose the Custom button not the Express button. Check for Hardware as well as software updates listed on the left.

Cheers!

Hi zlasav, there are a few things that must be checked before checking within the system. Please check your speakers by connecting them onto another system or notebook. (Make sure they function). If you are using windows XP any version, open control panel. Once opened than open the icon, "Sound and Audio Devices". The sound & audio properties window will open. Left click the "Audio tab". Under Default device: it should show something like "AC'97". Than left click the "Voice tab". Under default device: it should show the same, AC'97. If nothing is listed than there is either a problem with your sound device driver or the AC97 may not be enabled in your bios. To check the settings in your bios. Shut down the system. Then power up the system & press the F2 key every two seconds until the bios main menu opens. Please see page 50 in your manual. Turn to page 63 & 64 make sure your, Audio device is set to [Enabled].
Open control panel & open the System icon. System properties window will open. Click once on the hardware tab, than click on the device manager button. Device Manager window will open. Scroll down to, "Sound, video and game controller". Click the "+" sign to the left of Sound, video and game controller. (If it is not all ready opened). There may be a yellow explanation point shown there. If there is, you will need to reinstall the sound driver software. Do not use the Shuttle CD to install the audio software. Left click on this link which will open Shuttle's web site to the driver download site for your MV43N motherboard. http://eu.shuttle.com/archive/en/mv43n_faq.htm#download
Now create a folder on your desktop & name it AC97. Download the driver file named, (Audio Driver for MV43N (2155kB) & save it into the AC97 folder you created. The driver will be compressed & will need to be uncompressed into the AC97 folder. The compression software used by Shuttle is called Winzip. You can download Winzip for free at this site: http://www.download.com/WinZip/3000-2250_4-10003164.html Once Winzip is downloaded, install the program. Than uncompress the file, (Audio Driver for MV43N (2155kB), keeping it in the AC97 folder. Once that is completed it is time to reinstall the audio software from within windows device manager.
Instruction: How to install driver software from within device manager. Use the instructions above to open up device manager again.
Right click once on the yellow ! point & left click once on update driver. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). Click the green check mark once & it will go away.
Click the browse button, click the + sign next to my computer. Find you’re desktop folder AC97 & open it. Left click once on the folder named, Audio so it is high-lighted. Than click OK.
Windows will find the correct driver software & install it automatically. Once completed. Close all opened windows & restart you’re system. Test your audio. If you intend to use a mic, you will need to set this up through the Sounds audio devices within the control panel. If this does not fix your sound issue, than the onboard sound chip is defective. The only other option is to buy & add a PCI sound card in to an opened PCI slot on your motherboard.
If you have any questions or trouble just post it here.

Good luck zlasav!
Please take your time.
