Sound does not work on my laptop

You need to download the drivers for your particular hardware. Go to gateway's web site, look in the support section and in particular under downloads/drivers (or perhaps software). There will be a facility of entering your machine's model number and operating system to download the correct drivers. if you have difficulty finding them, then re-post here listing your computer's model number for assistance.

If you find this solution to be helpful, then please take a moment to rate this post. - Thanks.

Gateway Computer 710X Speakers are crackling/popping

It sounds as if the card itself may be physically bad. or you may have a microphone connected/something in your mic jack and you are picking up noise.
