take the time to install the motherboard drivers for XP?
Check the Gateway site and see what they have.
If you don't know what you have run Belarc Advisor and see what it has to tell you.
I had ME and installed XP SP2. Now I have no sound. I've checked everything I could think of, drivers say working properly, volumes are all up and on, speakers have power, tried looking to see if the driver needs to be updated or if sound card problems, seem to be ok. Do I need a new sound card? A guy at my work said my computer might have a sound card built in to my MB. I have a Gateway, about 6-7 years old. What do I need to do? If anyone has detailed instructions on what to try that would be great. Thanks.
