Question about Computers & Internet
Recently my speakers on my gateway laptop model:MT6821 just started making this clicking noise over and over muting the sound and turning it all the way down does nothing im thinking it could be blown or something but idk im not a very technical person. it is also coming out of the right side only. Also the sound still works out of both side but the clicking never goes away,
Problems of this kind CAN be caused by a driver that has been scrambled by Windows.
Try the following, it may not help but won’t get you in any worse condition than the one you are in.
- Open the Control Panel
- Select System
- Click on the Hardware tab
- Select Device Manager
- Find and open Sound, Video and Game controllers
- Find the driver (check manual) used with your audio system and delete it (remove)
Reboot your system and, if there is nothing else amiss, it will ‘find’ a 'new' device and re-install the software controlling your on-board audio.
If this doesn’t help, then you are likely dealing with a hardware problem that only Gateway can (at excessive cost) ‘cure’ by replacing the main board.
