Question about Gateway GM5260 PC Desktop

Open Question

Sound has suffered clarity due to white noise as of recent. I have a a Gateway GM5206 desktop running Windows Vista. I've had it for nearly 4 years and had little issues (none involving sound). I tried re-installing drivers and troubleshooting my speakers but the problem persists. I noticed during my speaker troubleshooting that when I removed the network cable the noise subsided substatially. I tried changing network cables to no avail.

SOURCE: no sound coming from new hp monitor through windows vista

Alright, I got the answer for ya, first, go into your control panel. Click on Sounds and Audio Devices. Listed in this window should be the name of your sound card. Under that, should be Device Volume, and at the bottom, should be the Speaker Settings, click into Advanced, next to speaker volume. It should show you a diagram of a monitor with the amount of speakers it has selected shown next to it. Where it says Speaker Setup, click and then scroll down until you see 3 settings labeled Monitor Stereo, Monitor Stand Stereo, and Monitor Mounted Stereo. Whatever one enables the sound will be the one you want to stick with.

the following connections available to connect ur computer to an TV:

S-Video output: If you have video card(external u will have this), you require an s-video cable and you connect s-video out of your computer to the s-video int of our TV.

TV-OUT: if you have video card(external u wil have this) you you require an coxial cable and you have to connect TV-out of your computer to TV-IN of our TV(it is place where cable connection goes from your cable operator)

DVI-D: if you have video card(external u will have this) you require an DVI-D cable you haveto connect DVI-D out of your computer(a white 15-pin port which looks like VGA port) ....

VGA: it is the port on your computer which is only used to connect to your computer but not to your TV or LCD(strictly)

Thanking you,

SOURCE: Speaker static noise

The first thing to try is plugging a set of headphones into the speaker plug and testing, see if the crackling continues, if it doesn't it sounds like a short in your speakers (or the sound card, but my guess would be the speakers).

Post your results here so we can further assist you.

Take the power supply and use it with another known working computer. If it works, then the problemo lies with your mo bo. Replace it with the gateway part number for the mo bo and ignore the other stuff. If you can do a "repair" operation with your OS you might be able to avoid reloading the OS and all of your programs all over again and save lots of time and aggravation. Can do with XP, maybe with Win 7.

My gateway 506gr came with XP. I upgraded to Vista, and now to Win 7Ultimate. I can't seem to get the correct audio driver for this desktop pc on windows 7. Vista, everything was ok


There have been alot of problems with Windows 7 and older software compatabilty. I have conflicting info on what audio you system has. One says Realtek:
http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?partNumber=4367
This site supports up to Windows Vista but, in some cases Vista will work with Win 7. You can also try here:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/DOWNLOADS/
Another said Intel, which you can try here:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx?iid=subhdr+downloads
With Intel, click on the "run Intel Driver Update", and let Intel scan your system, because they will let you know if your sound is theirs or not. What it may come down to is, if you can't find a driver, and, want Windows 7, you may have to upgrade to a sound or graphics card.
Good luck,
Dave

You need to access the BIOS - press F1 or F2 (depending on the version)during the start of the desktop - and in there you must modify the boot order: put the cd first then the had disk second. Save the change, reboot, insert the Vista disk and reboot once more - the disk will be loaded.
