Question about Gateway GT5228 PC Desktop
Installed new hard drive (old one crashed) used restore cd, everything works, except i have no sound. volume control in control panel says "no device installed". device manager says drivers are ok, whats up?
Most likely this is caused by missing/wrong sound driver.
The Gateway site lists driver D00633-01-01 which installs the Realtek Sound Driver. This driver worked fine on my GT5228 under XP/Media Center. If re-install of Windows, (or in my case a restore from the Gateway restore disk) then you will also need the AMD chip drivers, and Mainboard Drivers to support all of the on-board components (nVIDIA Video, LAN Adapter, etc.)

You need another sound system. If it's xp it is probably ac 97. However; go to windows update, make sure you have all of the updates. Then go to the control panel, device manager and look for a yellow question mark or a yellow exclamation mark, if there, right click and click update driver or click uninstall from the system, restart the computer and windows will look for the drivers, just follow on screen directions.
