How do I fix a sound problem with this Gateway MT3705 laptop

I am running Microsoft Vista Home Premium OS 32-bit on this Gateway MT3705 laptop. I installed a clean version of this OS wiping out everything that was previousy on there (Gateway branded Vista Home OS). I do not have the original factory recovery discs. When I installed the Vista Home Premium OS I cannot get any sound. I even updated the Sigmatel Hi Def drivers from the Gateway support site. Still no sound. I know the hardware is good. Is there some other driver needed for this Sigmatel sound controller or is there somewhere I can download the original recovery discs?? Please Help!

You will need to contact gateway to obtain recovery disks - they may very well charge for these.
Make sure you have the correct drivers - it sounds like a driver issue to me.

You may want to try updating XP to SP3 as the Microsoft UAA(Universal Audio Architecture) driver is probably needed for this High definition audio.

or ask for the hotfix from MS

Gateway used to have a feature called Gateway Update that works the same as Windows Update only it's specific to your computer. (And only for drivers.)

Running Windows Update may also find missing drivers.
