Having problems with your Gateway PC Desktops ?

I have a gateway notebook MT3708 that no longer has any audio sounds. I've had it about 1.5 years, and the software trial stopped, so I purchased the microsoft 2007 home, business and student edition, and installed it and it didn't fix the audio problem. What next? I get an error message that that is no audio device. But, there was sound when I first got it, but not anymore.

Probably you already tried this audio driver file from Gateway computers for your computer, install it anyway before the next step.

After the driver installation Windows will ask for a reboot, choose not to.

Go back to the Device Manager and Uninstall the Sigmatel Audio Driver then reboot the computer.

Windows will automatically re-install the driver on start.

Might as well check the Volume Control (the level or if it's Muted) and the manual volume control if yours have.
