Question about Gateway M305CRV Notebook
Most likely, WinXP is forcing your Secondary IDE (master) to run in PIO mode rather than DMA mode. This could come about after playing a scratch DVD. WinXP makes a quasi-permanent change here that you cannot alter with Device Manager.
Here's the solution I found at http://winhlp.com/node/10
To Remedy, use regedit:
(note ..96A-E325... is UNIQUE)
Under this key, look for the entry "0000" or "0001" etc. that has the following properties:
DriverDesc = Secondary IDE Channel
MasterIdDataChecksum = ?some value?
Delete the MasterIdDataChecksum line from this entry, then reboot windows.
Verify using Device Manager that the secondary IDE channel is now "DMA mode".

the speaker plug/outlets is usually at the back of the computer or if its a laptop on the side
you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make
sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity
clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is
no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit
dust causes static to build up in a computer which can affect all of your computer
hope this helps
