Question about Gateway G-MAX2000 2-Piece Multimedia Speakers Computer Speakers
The speakers were working fine until I unplugged them to move the PC to a new location and then plugged them in again. After the move they initially also worked fine but within 24 hours stopped working. I've tried every combination of USB port (they have a USB connector and a jack) and jack and nothing works. The speaker model number is GEM2.O-USB

First, make sure the speakers are plugged into the center green connector.
Second, go to Gateway's website and download the latest audio drivers for your system and reinstall them. That should do it.

The speaker system built into the monitor is configured that when a plug is inserted to headphone port, the speaker is mute. This is normal. (Consider when one wants to hear from a headphone, but not from the speaker, this is most user friendly configuration), same with sound system in a laptop/PC notebook. However, for some system it is configurable, please check your monitor manuals.

Unplug your headphones if you have not already.
Open device manager. You can do this by right clicking on your "My Computer" icon on your desktop and then selecting properties at the bottom of the menu that comes up, or by going to Start>Settings>Control Panel, and then opening the "System" icon.
Once the system properties tab is open, left click on the hardware tab. Now left click the Device Manager button.
On the device manager window, look for an entry that says "Sound, video and game controllers". Left click the + box directly to the left of this line. It will open up any devices you have in this category. Within this list, your sound card device should be listed. It may say something like "SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio" or something similar.
Right click this device and left click uninstall. It will prompt you if you are sure you want to do this, tell it yes/ok and the driver will be uninstalled at this point, leaving ou with the device manager open still but without your sound driver listed.
Now, close all of your open windows saving any work you may have open, and reboot the PC. Upon reboot, the system will automatically reinstall your sound card driver. It may prompt you if you want to do this, just tell it yes/ok as you need to, to continue installing this driver.
Once this is complete, your sound should be working normally again.

First Insure that the plugs are in the proper ports of the computer. Second, go to Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager, Look up to see that the Audio Drivers are functioning Properly. If not, then you will need to search and download the proper drivers for the Audio Device you have, Whether its on board audio, or a PCI Card, you will need to insure that you have the right drivers for it. If you have more information about the type of Audio Device for your computer, please respond with that information and I can troubleshoot with more detail.
