A white pci slot. There's usually 3 as the last of the slots, with only one notch in it. Either of these won't matter.

I have an older Gateway PC. Model 703GE that has always worked pretty good. Two days ago, out of the blue, the audio quit. I checked Sounds and Audio devices and see the message that the Audio Device


it would seem that your audio card or audio processor chip has died. If this is a desktop (or tower) pc, you may have an audio card plugged into the motherboard (mainboard). This can be removed and replaced. If the audio plugs come directly out of the motherboard you should still have open slots on the motherboard where you can plug in a new replacement sound card. what you need to do is determine what type of slots you have open, they are most likely standard PCI slots. You would need to go to a computer store like Best Buy and ask them to point out a new audio card to install in your system it should come with a disc which includes the drivers needed and installation instructions.

Compatible sound card for el1200


This model only has 1 PCI express 1x slot. So any sound card that uses a PCIe 1x slot. Just google "audio card pcie 1x". This computer has built-in sound so not sure why you want another card.

Is there a soundcard for the t3604 with a output mixer on it


The eMachines T3604 desktop computer uses an Intel 945GCL motherboard,

http://www.ascendtech.us/intel-d945gcl-1066fsb-ddr2-pcie-x16-sata_i_mb4intd945gcl.aspx

(No, not advertising. Just a good photo of the motherboard, if you slightly scroll down)

Look at the chart below the photo of the mobo. (MOtherBOard)
Expansion Capabilities:

A) Two PCI slots (Two PCI Conventional bus connectors. Long white slots)

B) One PCI Express x1 bus add-in card connector.

(PCI Express x1 slot. The longer PCI-Express x16 slot is on top.
Then the two long white PCI slots. Then the shorter black PCI-Express x1 slot)

You can use a Sound Card in an available white PCI slot, or if the black PCI-Express x1 slot is open.

Yes, I know, I'm getting to it, lol!

The Onboard Audio -> Intel High Definition Audio, doesn't have an output mixer feature.

My onboard audio - Realtek, (And on an Intel mobo), does.

[ Intel 915G (Southlake) motherboard.
Has a Realtek audio chip, ALC860. I use the Realtek Audio Manager. Has Sound Effects, and an equalizer.
What happened from the Intel 915G to the Intel 945GCL INTEL?
Sheesh! ]

Suggest this if you have an open, available PCI slot,

This, if you only have the PCI Express x1 slot open,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=420799&CatId=2771

I don't recommend a USB sound card, but you may,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5344879&CatId=2771

(Usually only 16-bit.
Plugs into a USB port where the contacts are not gold plated, as on a PCI sound card, or PCI-Express x1 sound card.
I'm old school, and probably need to evolve ; )

Plus use Virtual DJ,

Dont have audio device


Check device manager if the Audio device is detected.

Check Audio device has mark like this ! - i suggest uninstall / reinstall the audio device driver. download the driver from dellsupport.com drivers and download page.

If the audio device has ? mark it means that computer not able to recognize the audio hardware. if you are using audio onboard replace motherboard. if the audio has expansion card reseat the card then try again. if all fails then try a different audio card if passed then the audio card is faulty. if all fails using a different audio card it means the motherboard slot is faulty. replace mobo.

Can i replace the audio chip?


No, at least I wouldn't recommend it.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The mounting of an audio chip uses a style of surface mount.
BGA.
Ball Grid Array.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_Grid_Array

Referring back to the older Processor's, they used pins on the bottom.
These pins mated up to socket holes in the processor socket.

With a BGA surface mount there are no pins.
Solder balls take the place of the pins.
The motherboard has matching copper pads for mating the solder balls.

The chip is set correctly in place on top of the copper pads, and the chip is then properly heated until the solder balls melt, and solder the chip to the copper pads.

It would be Much easier to just install a Sound Card.
The Sound Card can be installed in any available PCI or PCI-E x1 slot.

Gateway 506GR motherboard,

http://support.gateway.com/s//PC/R/3724/4367nv.shtml

Click on Components in the list.
On this page scroll down to the Motherboard heading, and click on -
102007 - Intel (Ausberg) No CPU Motherboard R0

Now click on - Specifications

To the right of the Add-n Cards heading we can see,

1) The motherboard has two PCI expansion slots. {Two PCI Conventional bus connectors)
These expansion slots are White in color.

2) One PCI-Express x1 slot.
(One PCI Express x1 bus add-in card connector)

View of Gateway Intel (Ausberg) motherboard used in a Gateway 506GR desktop computer,

http://www.ascendtech.us/itemdesc.asp?ic=mb4gwaugsburg

Scroll down towards the bottom of the page, and view the motherboard photo, and matching chart underneath.

Z1 points to the two long White PCI slots.
Z points to the shorter Black PCI-E x1 slot.

When the Sound Card is installed one of the expansion slot covers will have to be removed.
(Expansion slot area is shown as D in this rear view,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/3724/3724rv.shtml )

You may want to just use a Sound Card, that has basically the same specifications as the OnBoard audio you had before, (Integrated Audio), or you may wish to upgrade your sound system a bit with a better Sound Card, and be able to use satellite speakers, and a woofer.

To be continued in a Comment.

I replaced th original Ati radeon x300 video card on my hp media center m7250n for a new galaxy gt 240 for better video and also changed the power supply to a new 550 watts. Since I lost audio. The system...


Hello
The x300 is video only.There is a possibility you may have knocked your sound card out of its pci slot while working inside the case.

Check that the sound card is firmly seated in the slot.

If you do not have a sound card and are using onboard sound,reinstall the sound drivers.

Enjoy your new gt 240.

I have no sound on my dell optiplex gx280. it tells me soundcard has been uninstalled/removed, or is being used by another programme.the latter is not the case.any suggestions.i only bought it 2nd hand,...


My first thought is to check if the card has become lose from the slot. To check that you will need to open the case safely (make sure to wear an anti-static wrist strap or ground yourself any time you move). Unplug your computer from all of the external devices and power as well.

These directions assume your card is not screwed into the back of the case (in which case either the slot is not getting enough power or the card is bad).

Pull the sound card out and place it in the slot (or, preferably, another open slot of the same type). Push down evenly on the entire card (sometimes you'll need to press on the front and then the back of the card until it is fully seated).

Close the case and plug in your external devices (at least power, mouse, keyboard and speakers) and test if the device is found.

I'm also assuming you have a sound card and not on-board audio. If at some time a sound card was added and the on-board audio was disabled, you may be able to re-enable the on-board audio after removing the sound card drivers. If the reseating of the card doesn't work, I'd try a new sound card.

I hope this helps.
