If you have the CD Driver of your laptop, try to install your Sound Driver. Just look for the Setup.exe or if it doesnt have a setup.exe and you want to install it manually, go to Control Panel and open Add Hardware, if your computer detected that the sound needs driver showing a critical icon(yellow triangle with exclamation point). Just browse the CD so that the computer will know where to find the sound driver. If you dont have a CD of your sound driver. Go the Gateway site. This is the support download site of Gateway : http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/ddaStep.asp?Tab=All ----Just complete steps 1-5 and you can download your sound driver.
