Audio I have a Gateway Laptop model number ML3109, and the little volume thing in the bottom right corner of the screen has a red x on it. I assumed I had the volume turned down, but when I try to turn it up it doesnt' work, and it says: No Audio Output Device is installed. I have had my computer for quite awhile now, and have listened to plenty of songs and movies so I know at one time it worked..can you help?!?!

Go to START, PROGRAMS, ACCESSORIES, ENTERTAINMENT, Volume control. With the volume control open, see if the volume is muted (Checkbox marked mute at bottom of Master volume) If it is checked, uncheck it, and you should have sound.

I am having problems adjusting volume


What type of laptop HP , ASUS , COMPAQ , ACER ?..........
Up the Volume on My HP Laptop
Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon.
Locate and open the icon that deals with sound.
Depending on your version of Windows, it will say either "Sounds and Audio Devices" or "Adjust System Volume."
Adjust the volume under the "Speakers" icon.
To do this, click on the slider bar and move it up on the slider.
If you need to decrease the volume, simply move the slider bar down.
Click on "OK" when finished and close the "Control Panel" window.
Click on the speaker icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen for a faster volume adjustment. Simply move the slider bar up to increase the volume and move it back down to decrease the volume.

Volume on an Acer Laptop
Acer laptops are typically sold with pre-installed Windows operating systems that offer sound-adjustment features for increasing the volume on the laptop's built-in stereo speakers.
These same functions can also be used in tandem with external speakers or headphones to increase the volume, as well as mute all sound on the laptop.
If the computer should output an unusually low volume, fixing the problem may be no more involved than sliding a control switch with the computer mouse. Click once on the speaker icon in the taskbar on the lower-right corner to open a rectangular window with a slide control.
Click and hold the left mouse button on the slide control to drag it upward, increasing the volume to the laptop's maximum setting.
Click the "Mixer" button below the slider control to open another window with volume controls for "Speakers" and "Applications," adjusting each slide control upward to increase the volume.
Be sure the speaker icon below each control is not accidentally muted.
Click once on each speaker icon to remove the red circle with a slash through it, which will restore audio.
Click the Microsoft flag or "Start" button in the lower-left corner if the shortcut speaker icon is missing from the taskbar.
Click "Control Panel" to select "Adjust Sounds" from the Hardware and Sounds category.

Suggest download AND install the Audio driver, from the laptop manufacturer's support website.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

The device in question is the Audio chipset.
What version of Windows operating system that is used, has not been stated.

I need the laptop manufacturer name;
Acer
HP
Gateway
IBM/Lenovo
Jack in the Box
(NO,.........you gonna' believe that last one? lol!)

I also need the Model Number. This can be found on the Bottom of the laptop. (-> NOT S/N. That is the Serial Number)

I also need to know what Windows operating system you are using.
Windows 98
Windows Me
Windows XP
Windows Vista
Windows 7
Windows 8

Please post back in a Comment.

Then I can guide you step by step, in downloading AND installing the correct Audio driver.

(I will also guide you in reinstalling the Volume icon, back to your taskbar. The taskbar is at the bottom of the screen. Has the Time in it. The Volume icon is a small speaker icon. Round circle with smaller round circle in the middle )

When i go to control sound says no audio device


Not a problem

Just download AND install the audio driver.

(Audio = Sound)

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

The device is the audio chipset.
The Windows O/S wasn't stated.


State the Model Number of the Gateway laptop in a Comment, and state what version of Windows operating system you are using.

I will come back, and guide you step by step in downloading, AND installing the audio driver.

[Model Number is on the Bottom of the laptop ]

The reason you see No Audio Device in Device Manager, is there is no driver to tell BIOS that audio chipset is there.

[WinXP:
Left-click on Start.
Right-click on My Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
In the System Properties window, left-click on the Hardware tab.
Left-click on Device Manager ]

We will also restore the Volume icon back in the taskbar.
(System taskbar is at the bottom of the screen. Time/date is in taskbar )

Please post back in a Comment.

Gateway 450ROG audio stopped working after connecting to TV


Go into Start / control panel / sounds / and see if any drivers are showing, if not then re-install, Go to vendors site to download driver for your laptop.

Just remembered little tip, can you see the speaker at lower right of screen, if not driver may not be there especially if it was before.

Cant turn up volume my compaq presario laptop


Ok it could be a few things, I am assuming that you are using XP and its a laptop, so lets try these:
  1. Can you turn up the volume by using Control Panel -- Sounds and Audio Devices --- Device Volume slider?
  2. On some Compaqs, the controls for audio are activated by holding down the FUNCTION key (usually blue letters on key on the left side of keyboard) and then pressing the audio up or audio down key. These keys are usally towards the top of the keyboard. These keys can do multiple things depending if the blue function key is press down first. They can control things like switching between internal and external displays, turning up/down the brightness on your laptop display and controling your audio levels too.
  3. Do you hear any sounds at all, if not, does Device Manager list your sound device?
  4. If this is a desktop PC, number 2 does not apply.
ok try those and let me know, Thx! =)
