Question about Altec Lansing ATP 3W Computer Speakers

4 Answers

They need installing

I bought a computer on ebay, and they had just installed a fresh version of windows onto it, when i put my speakers into it, everything present and correct, they don't make any sound, no music etc. on the volume control it says theres no hardware attatched, this happened on my old computer too, i had to download something but i cant for the life of me remember what it was.

any ideas??? please...i neeeed my music!!!! My 4 year old (approx.) ATP3 Altec Lansing Speakers don't work. I had Geel Squad hook them up with my new HP Pavilion a6120n computer last summer but during a remodeling project the computer and hardware was disconnected and since then I can't get the speakers to work. I think I have them hooked up right and I checked the Sound set up in Control Panel. Of, course, I am no hardware expert. Is there a free driver I can download to see if that's the problem? Thanks!

The problem is that you have no sound driver installed. Think of the sound card inside of your computer as a car, and like a car it can't work without a driver. A driver is basically software that controls the hardware. However in order to further assist you I need to know the make and model.

Let me know and I can assist further.

I don't have any sound on my computer's internal speakers or my headphones after installing windows 7 pro on my averatec a2 all in one pc, can anyone help me?


You probably just need to install some fresh RealTek drivers. Normally, Windows Update should address this problem but if it doesn't then you can find the drivers you need here:

http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/

And choose the High Definition Audio drivers for 64 bits Windows 7.

Hi, im trying to install windows 7 ultimate onto my gateway. I bought it retail from best buy and am having problem with the install... is it factory set for me not to be able to install an operating...


If you bought a full retail version and not an upgrade, you may need to do a fresh installation of windows. You also need to make certain that your gateway model is able to upgrade to windows 7. Checking your computer's support page, there are no BIOS updates available. Your computer should be fully capable of upgrading to windows 7 from windows Vista. ALso looking at Gateway's support page for this model, there are no drivers offered for Windows 7. All drivers offered are for windows Vista. I have seen computers in the past that will not tolerate an operating system change from the system that was installed at the factory.

If you have a restore partition, you can back up your data, and do a clean install of windows after formatting your hard drive. You may also want to make recovery disks for your computer in case the Win 7 will take on your computer or you cannot get your hardware to work with Win 7 since Gateway offers no Win 7 drivers.
Good luck. Take precautions to back up data and be able to revert to your original factory settings if necessary.

The computer ask for product key..... i bought a new laptop and the sales rep says ms office is already saved on my computer..


You need to tell the sales rep that you need the product installation code for MS Office 2007 and it was part of the package you purchased.
Ask for the installation MS Office CD the documentation and the product installation code, as well as the Windows installation CD and product installation code.
You will need these if you have to install these onto a new hard disk.

A victim of software counterfeiting


If you bought the computer from a computer-store, with Windows pre-installed, then contact Microsoft (1-800-R-U-LEGIT) and report the store for installing a "non-genuine" version of Windows onto your computer.

Otherwise, follow the on-screen instructions to "Get Genuine".
Have your credit-card ready, because you will need to purchase a valid license, and you will get a 25-character product-key that you can input into Windows.

Cant get it to work....


If the Windows CD you have is the same version that was installed on the computer, you can do a fresh installation from that. You will need to go to HP's site here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=408455

to download the drivers Windows will need. Since the computer probably won't have working network hardware after installing Windows, you should download the drivers into a USB thumb drive or put them onto a CD on another computer.

You will also need to manually activate the copy of Windows you install this way.

Yes you can install another windows on it here are instructions for windows XP they are almost the same for just about all versions of windows past windows 2000.
  1. Start your computer from the Windows XP CD. To do this, insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive or DVD drive, and then restart your computer.

    Note To boot from your Windows XP CD, the BIOS settings on your computer must be configured to do this.
  2. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD.
  3. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to start Windows XP Setup.
  4. Read the Microsoft Software License Terms, and then press F8.
  5. Follow the instructions on the screen to select and format a partition where you want to install Windows XP.
  6. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the Windows XP Setup.
