Hello, I have several probs.going @once,in the device mngr.i have several yellow ? marks.for the following.1:)Audio device on Hi Def audio bus. 2:)Ether net controller,3:)sm.bus controller 4;)video...

You probably installed Windows from a "generic" CD-ROM.
Reinstall Windows, from the ACER-modified Windows "System Restore" disk, and all the correct device-drivers will be automatically installed.

Or, find another computer with Internet access, and a CD-writer.

Access ACER's web-site. Click "support" and "download", and download the AUDIO and NETWORK and MOTHERBOARD and VIDEO drivers to a folder on the computer.

Burn the contents of that folder to a CD-recordable.
(Since you say that your 'SM Bus Controller' is not working, you won't be able to use a USB memory-stick on your computer.)

Move the CD-R to your computer, and install the MOTHERBOARD driver, and then the other drivers, from the CD.

I carnt hear anything in my laptop i really need help i think i have to install somthing how?

Make sure the audio is not muted by single left clicking the audio icon at the bottom right of the screen.
Double click the audio icon at the bottom right of the screen and the audio panel will display check nothing is muted.
Check the mute box is not ticked.
Right click my computer.
Click properties.
Click hardware.
If you have a yellow mark next to any item download the appropriate driver from the manufactures web site.
If it’s not muted you will most likely find you have not got the audio driver installed.

Sound problem

Couple of thoughts:
1) is mute on?
2) is the volume turned too low?

- assuming you have XP for the following -

3) if you open the control panel and go to 'sounds and audio devices', make sure the volume is 25-50%. Click advanced button and put all volume sliders at 25-50%. Make sure none of the 'mute' boxes are checked.
4) Right-click 'My Computer' and click 'manage'. From the list at the left, click 'Device Manager'. On the list at the right, is there any items under 'sound, video, and game controllers' that have a yellow exclamation or red x on them? If so, you'll likely need to reinstall the audio drivers.
