Question about Gateway Essential 500 PC Desktop
My sound system is working properly, because I plugged it into another computer. Digital Output Device is working fine, but it saids my speakers are not plugged in??? One solution told me to re-install the sound driver, but how in the blue blazes do I that and where is located.
My computer model is a Gateway GT5408
Hi, am sorry your having such a problem let me try to help you locating where was installed and perhaps re-installing it. First of all your gonna hit "START" or if you have windows vista click on the Windows logo on the lower left corner of your monitor. From there look for the "My Computer" and left click on it, once you do that a menu will appear, on that menu select the last option which is "Properties" in properties look for a tab or a button that says "DEVICE MANAGER" and click on it. If you have windows vista just click on the windows logo on the search bar type "Device Manager". Ok.....now that we are on device manager look for "Sound, Video and game Controllers" or something related to your sound. Hit the plus sign a menu will show, now left click on the proper link for your sound and hit properties. On properties for your audio go to the driver tab. There you go, you have options of uninstalling such driver, reinstalling the driver, or updating the driver. Let me now if I can be of further assistance to you. Good Luck!
