Before you go to replacing the sound card, start by uninstalling the sound drivers, reboot, the machine will find and automatically reinstall them. Then check Gateway's support site for any updated drivers. your problem may just be a driver glitch, it happens.

Sir my delln5010 laptop internal speakers are not functioning , yesterday when i was listening to music it suddenly stops and after it was not functioning


Hi sir,
How can you say that it is the internal speaker that is defective? Have you tried another sound output, like headset or external speakers? If you have, and it works then the problem is definitely the speakers. You will need to have it serviced/replaced. If even the external speakers do not dork, then the problem is the sound card which is embedded on the motherboard. That means you will need to have the motherboard replaced.
But before anything else, try to check the sound playback if it is properly set to default. Sometimes we may have installed an application or clicked on something that changes the default output of our speakers. Check it first and hopefully it fixes it. Make sure that you have the right default sound output.

Hello. I just purchased these speakers and there is a low static hum in them. Also, if I turn up the bass volume on the subwoofer I get a deep hum and no sound. Any assistance would be greatly...


Double check your wiring again, sounds like something is either not hooked up right or maybe you got faulty speakers. There shouldn't be any hissing or humming in any speakers. Get a flash light and make sure you have it in the right spot on your computer most sound cards have about 5 different jacks you could have simply put it in the wrong jack.

There is static on the speakers all the time.


Hi

The static on the speakers can be caused due to many reasons. However, the most common trouble maker is a cut wire or loose connection. Try tweaking the sound settings before proceeding further.

If not resolved then, check whether all the connections are good and wires are not cut. Next thing to check is the power cord, try changing the power socket to see if it is due to the electrical noise caused by power socket.
The last thing to check for is the sound card. Use a headphone and insert it into the same jack where your speakers are inserted and check if you still can hear the static. If yes then the sound card is faulty and if no then there is an internal circuitry issue with your speakers. Please post back for any assistance.

Getting static sound through speakers it only goes away when music plays but can still here it in the background could it be my sound card


it is a improper earthing of the pc (not likely) but definately a condensor leaky discharging while it self getting charged..its detected by seeing the amplifier and the condensors usually 100-1000 ufd.(electrolytic). one can see a buldge(if faulty) on the condensor(top) usually that area is flat.
leave a testimonial later.

Sounds like the cords that are going into the PC/system have static. Remove the cords from the speakers and simply put your finger around the jacks to remove static. Push the cords and the jacks back in and switch on the speakers. Then twist the volume control, turning it up loud and then low, then loud and low again. That should cure the problem as it removes static that gets built up over time. Either that or your speakers could well be damaged.

Static coming from my DELL AS500 speakers


It's the jack on the back of the PC or sound card. Sounds like some solder is loose on the jack.

The cheapest solution would likely be to just replace the sound card, if your comfortable installing them. It's really quick and pretty hard to mess up.

If it's "onboard" sound, meaning the audio jacks are built right into the mother board, you'd likely need to just replace it with a pci based sound card.

Sound from 4 speakers cut off..


To troubleshoot a speaker system where sound is not issuing from all speakers, please do the following:
  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the source selector switch or the M3D button on the controller unit (if available). You can also use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  3. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  4. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.
