Gateway 450rog Audio problem

\015 Hey there everyone. I recently was given an older (2003) Gateway laptop computer, model 450ROG. Now, I am no stranger to reformatting the hard drives, installing a fresh OS, and getting the drivers and hardware up and running. I have built manycomputers and have reformatted many different types of computer s.I have a fresh install of Windows XP Profesional on the computer. I have the all of the drivers working except for the modem (which i wont install cause who uses a modem these days?) and the audio driver. Now all the info I can find says that this laptop contains a Sigmatel\302\256 Soft Audio AC97 rev 2.3 codec (STAC9752). I have tried downloading the audio driver that is listed for this model laptop on the Gateway site. The new hardware wizard starts to install the drivers for the audio and the blue screen of death flashes real quick and the computer reboots, once windows is logged on, the hardware wizard tries again to install the audio and the entire process repeats. I have tried downloading the AC97 drivers straight from the Realtek site as well as older versions that I have found. The only way the computer will work is to boot in safe mode and disable the Realtek ACA97 audio and restart. The computer seems to run fine with the audio disabled.Anyone have any ideas?\015

Answers :

I have just re-imaged a Gateway 450 ROG for a friend of mine on the website the audio driver is found (http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?st=pn&param=3501353) under the heading Sound Downloads. This unzips a list of files C:\\cabs\\9520522
\015\012Readme.txt
\015\012stac97(security catalog)
\015\012stac97(control panel extension)
\015\012stac97 (setup information)
\015\012stac97(system file)
\015\0121. From the Start menu, click Control Panel.
\015\0122. In Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance.
\015\0123. In Performance and Maintenance, click the System icon.
\015\0124. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
\015\0125. In Device Manager, click the plus sign (+) next to Other Devices, and then double-click Multimedia Audio Controller.
\015\0126. In the Multimedia Audio Controller Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver.
\015\0127. In the Hardware Update Wizard dialog box, click Install from a list or specific location (Advanced), and then click Next.
\015\0128. In the next dialog box, click Search for the best driver in these locations, and then click Include this location in the search.
\015\0129. In the text box, type: C:\\CABS\\9520522. Click Next.
\015\01210. Click Finish.
\015\012Now once installed sound only comes from using the headphone jack, the external speakers get a little sound if the volume is turned up to maximum.
\015\012
\015\012Hope this helps

Coolonh=g Assembly First my Gateway 450ROG would freeze up I sent it to be checked by an I.T person, I was told it was the because the computer was over heating so I replaced the cooling assembly. I download the laptop monitor and it say that the fan on the cooling assembly is not working so I put the old one back in it does not work either. Would this mean that the problem is still the cooling system or the motherboard, as you do hear the swarlling of the fan when you turn on the laptop.


I put Silver Oxide thermal compound on the CPU because it was old and wearing off. Someone on here suggested that it could help. Not that my cooling assembly was not working. IT DID NOT FIX THE PROBLEM!!! My 450rog is about 5 to 6 years old and only ... Gateway 450ROG Notebook
