Having problems with your Gateway 450ROG Notebook ?

Gateway 450ROG No Sound

\015 I've got a Gateway 450ROG here, the sound suddenly quit working a few months ago. I tried and tried uninstalling and reinstalling te sound drivers, no luck. Headphone jack does not produce any sound either. Reformatting the compute and reinstallin the sound drivers failed to work also.... I opened up the laptop and it appears that the sound card is built into the mother board. The laptop was hard enough to open, I cant imagine replaceing the mother board. Does anyone have any other ideas I could try to fix this problem? If not, hw hard would it be to rplace the motherboard myself? (I am currently in a pc managementand maintenance class, getting ready to tes for my A+ certidfication.... haven't covered anything on laptops yet and the book is vauge.) Any help would be greatly appreciaed\015

Answers :

I was going nuts over this problem...Here is what I did and got the thing working.

1-unintall realtec97. These are not the right drivers for the gateway 450rog.
2-go to the bios set-up and load the default set-up(F9) and save. - DO NOT MAKE ANY CHAGES now or ever to the BIOS.. it seems that if you change any settings it messes up the sound.
3-reboot the computer and you should see windowss found new multimedia devices and it will install the Simatel C Major audio driver

YOU SHOULD BE GOOD.. good luck to all that had this terrible problem.
Dude, the same thing just happened to my 450ROG last week. I tried everything but i couldn't get it to work. I ended up having to get an external sound card. good luck man.
