gateway m2624u left speaker works fine; but my right has no sound at all. It never made any negative noise or static; just nothing comes out from it.

Make sure you don't have the balance for your "master" sound settings set to one side.

If that doesn't help....

The headphones jack on laptops and netbooks has a mechanical switch inside of it. It's supposed to disable the sound from going to the speakers built into the laptop whenever you plug a plug (on a cord) into the headphones jack.
If you have plugged into the headphones jack a lot, it's common for that mechanical switch to malfunction. You could try plugging a plug into the headphones jack, wiggling it, then pulling it out, that may get one or both speakers working, but the only real solution is to replace the headphones jack - that's an item frequently replaced by laptop repair places.
OR - you could make do by plugging amplified speakers into the headphones jack.

Thank you for the help. I have never used headset or speakers on my labtop. My settings just shows the one black dot; that is reflecting right and left and its black. Left works fine; when i run the speaker test says no problem; but when u do a sound check; the right one never ever sounds.

Have both built in speakers worked previously?

If they have, have you dropped the laptop, or have you spilled liquid on it, since you last have sound from both sides ?

"My settings just shows the one black dot; that is reflecting right and left and its black."

Where are you seeing that?

.....

RIGHT click on the speaker icon in your Taskbar lower right corner of the main desktop screen.
Click on Audio devices
On the default Playback screen, double click on the default sound device - the one with the green checkmark.
Click on the Levels tab.
Click on Balance on the first line shown - the Levels for both L and R should be the same.
......

Programs that can change sound volumes and the L - R balance of sound are not supposed to affect the sound settings of anything else when they're not running, but rarely the program is not written properly and it DOES affect the sound settings of other programs.
Make sure the balance of all such programs is not set to one side.
