    Gateway MX64** series. I watched as my RT speaker started smoking from overload of power even though the mute button was on and the computer was not running any programs and idle. Headphones still work fine. Pulled out speaker bar and the RT speaker was smoked. Ordered a used one, but need to find out why this happened.
    I know I should expect odd **** like this with Gateway products, but I would like to know why this is happening with the MAJORITY of Gateway laptop owners on here. Anyone knows, please post the tech answer.

On the Toshiba Satellite Pro there is a very small volume scroll bar on the front (I only just discoverd) and even though all of my sound was on full, this little scroll was on low. All this time i have been rebooting and downloading new software, this was the only problem -.- . Hope This Helps!

Heat dissipation from the unit in the same area of the speaker assembly, especially since you stated that the RIGHT speaker was smoked. Similar problems occur with this design flaw with any manufacturer as HP has the same problem with some of their models.

Your heat exhaust is killing the speaker, and I would also bet that your chipset is AMD and not Intel, the latter having solved it's heat dissipationn problems.

A more aggressive heat dissipation solution on the motherboard or redirection of the exhaust past fewer heat sensitive components would be a design goal.

Seems to me the speaker is just plain broken. You'll need a new one, contact your vendor for repairs, or you will have to live with using external speakers/earpieces...

I hope you will get your replacement,

Hello i have a proble with my speakers they do not


If you are using Windows Vista, or XP: look in the bottom right corner of the screen and you will see a small speaker icon. Click on this. Next you will see a check box for "mute". Ensure this is not checked.

Also, in the search box under the Start File Menu (bottom left corner of screen {windows button} ) go to control panel: make sure that Control Panel Home in the top left corner is slected. If not, select it: then scroll down and click on sounds and hardware. Here you will be able to adjust audio devices, sounds. etc.

After you have made any changes, restart the computer to ensure the changes are made, and test the speakers.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

I don't know if this will work with Vista but in Windows 7 you can go to the speaker icon in the taskbar and click on the icon above the volume control. This will take you to the sound properties. Click the levels tab and mute the PC speaker. This worked for me.
