Go to the gateway support site and in the search box, put the serial number of your laptop. It is printed on the tag on the bottom of the case. Now, put in what operating system you are using and a list of drivers will appear. Select the audio driver and download it. Once it is downloaded, double click on it and run the installer. The driver will activate the sound card.

Audio service refuses to start

The obvious, is it muted? NO. Disable device in Device Manager, enable device, no change, uninstall audio device, reboot, I don't know your OS, your OS should automaticly ID the audio an add driver. If it does not go to Acer website a download audio driver for your OS. Install manually. You stated,"after installing a hard drive I had from another laptop" . The Harddrive you installed, did you format it and install into this laptop and clone the drive? I am a bit confused by the statment, "after installing a hard drive I had from another laptop"?

Make sure the player supports the audio format. The V-Touch supports .MP3 & .WMA. If it is a different audio type such as .WAV, it will not be playable. Try and see if you can get the audio clip in .MP3 or .WMA format.
