Question about Gateway 450ROG Notebook

Sound Card Broken?

I got a cheap charger off amazon for my Gateway 450ROG a while ago. It worked fine for a few months. However, now the sound doesn't work and when I plug the charger in, the speakers make a buzzing sound and the actual sound card makes a high piched humming/buzzing sound. What is wrong?

Im sorry to say it sounds like a surge in power is causing this issue. It would be interesting to see if an original power supply solves this issue. In any case I would get this checked by a qualified engineer to determine the exact fault (Use the repairman finder on this site to find one near you.)

No sound in my gateway 450 ROG Notebook


You have probably lost the driver for your sound card. You can download the correct driver at mpcdrivers.com under the downloads/notebook page.
Also, check in your control panel/device manager and see if there is a yellow flag next to your sound card, or if it is even there at all. If it is yellow flagged, uninstall it, then reinstall the new driver

I dropped my laptop and now the battery will not charge.


Most likely its the DC Power Jack. Happened to me. You can find the part online by searching for "450ROG DC Jack" and then just resolder yourself or take it to a repair shop.

Sound card


Before you go to replacing the sound card, start by uninstalling the sound drivers, reboot, the machine will find and automatically reinstall them. Then check Gateway's support site for any updated drivers. your problem may just be a driver glitch, it happens.

Without a visual inspection it would be impossible to say. But it does sound like you will almost certainly need a new motherboard.

Sound just stopped working


Try removing the drivers and reinstalling them. Otherwise, your sound controller may have bit the dust, in which case only replacing it will work.
