I had sound until a week ago
It is not muted

Whoa, I found the problem. I switched my headphone jack to the rear plug and it worked. It would seem that the front audio jacks are bad.

Thank you all for your help

Is the link below for your computer?

http://support.gateway.com/emachine...

If so, you have integrated HD sound. Do you want to get that working or install an add in sound card?

How can you download a driver for a soundcard you don't even have yet? And what's wrong with the onboard sound?

I'm wondering if we might have a terminology problem:

On-board sound module is a chip on the motherboard - usually provided from new.

Sound card is an add-on circuit board, which is used to replace the on-board sound module. It might need to be switched over in BIOS.

Sound driver is software that is required to make either of the above function properly. This can be on a disk or downloaded. It has to match the module or card.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

OK, all of you obviously know more about this than I and that's a good thing. Let me try to answer your questions.
1.Yes Othehill, that appears to be my motherboard and I just want a working sound system and assumed the most economical way would be to add a plug-in board.

2.Riider. I downloaded a driver for the imbedded sound system thinking that the original had been corrupted. No Joy.

Did the sound originally work with the onboard module or is this a computer you acquired with no sound?

Do you have a sound icon in the tray next to the clock? If so go to the options and make sure the playback is not muted or the sliders turned down.

Otherwise, go to Device Manager and see if there are any errors showing under Sound Video and Game Controllers > your sound. They are usually yellow question marks.

No errors listed but it states that there are no speakers or headphones plugged in even though when I plug in or unplug my headphones I get a balloon message acknowledging the act on screen.
