Hi, IF you are looking for the sound card installed on your computer, it is usually integrated with the Motherboard. And if your trying to install a PCI card type of sound card, all you need to do is to plug it in and automatically the integrated sound card on the motherboard is turned off by default. Now after plugging it in and when you turn on your computer, a Found New Hardware balloon will appear on the task bar and it will ask you to install the drivers that came with the sound card that you got.
Thank you for using Fixya, your recommendation is highly appreciated for the free support.

Gateway one gz7108 will not power on when graphics card is in the graphics slot .but wil power when it out of the slot.

You may have to go into the system BIOS and change which is the primary video adapter. It may be looking at the onboard video as the default which is why you don't see anything when trying to use your addon video card.

Hope that helps.

Where is sound card located

Hello there,
The sound card is located at the back part of the motherboard. It is connected by a flexi ribbon. Then it sits on a tray spot on the back of the casing. It has the 3.5mm pin prongs port on it, with a mic port. That is the sound card.
Hope this was helpful to you. Goodluck Elect_Comp

Where is located the sound card for gateway 310 x h computer

Go to

The sound card is part of the motherboard - the three small jacks (pink, yellow (green?) and blue) just below the USB/network ports are for the sound card functions. Pink = Microphone, Yellow (Green) = audio out, Blue = audio in.

There is also an audio out in the front of the computer for headphone output.

Just a simple question

Open the desktop and wherever the monitor plugs into just follow that on the desktop. It will either be onboard video (on the motherboard) or a separate card.

Either way you can always change the video card.

You just need to make sure it's AGP 8x

That's what your board supports.

Best of luck!

Audio drivers

If you have on board sound, then the drivers are on the Gateway website under support and downloads. If they are from a third party sound card you will have to get them from the sound card distributors website.

Cloud storage and file storage - DataAlign In vanilla terms, a backup or the process of backing up, refers to the copying and archiving of computer data so it may be used to restore the original after a data loss event. Backups have two distinct purposes. The primary purpose is to recover data after its loss, be it by data deletion or corruption. The simplest definition of a computer backup is an exact copy. In the case of computer files, we are referring to copies of the original files that you have on your laptop, desktop, or external drive. Creating a backup of original content means having that data saved in two places, but it's also important to make sure that those two places aren't on the same type of device. For example, if you have 3 copies of a working document on your computer, if your computer crashes, you will still lose all three. This makes the backup method and medium, an important thing to consider for your backup strategy. With the kind of Online Cloud Backup technology being used these days, it is extremely important to back up your files. Ideally, we store data files, movies, music, photos and our official documents on the computer. With the ever-changing technology, desktops and laptops have reduced in cost, and the quantum of storage inside them has surged considerably over the last few years. Unfortunately, storing all your data in only one place is risky. Accidental deletion, theft, computer loss, natural disaster is just some of the reasons that could cost you heavily as you stand out the chance to lose the data you've spent so long generating and collecting. Having an excellent backup strategy Computer Data Backup is the only way to battle the unexpected loss of data. There is more than one way to back up your computers, and using multiple forms of backup will minimize the risk of losing your valuable files. This is where, the PC Backup solution from DataAlign stands out of the rest and gives a one stop solution for Business Server Data Backup up your computer's data on the secure cloud servers. Our innovative platform has been designed while keeping you in mind. To provide optimal user experience we focus on simplicity and this in turn ensures that you will be able to backup and access large data quickly and smoothly.
