Go to "Start", "Control Panel", Administrative Tools, Computer Management, click on "Device Manager" on the left hand side and look on the right hand side. See if you have a yellow exclamation next to the "Sounds, Video and Game Controllers". If yes, double-click on the line with the exclamation and then click on the driver tab at the top. Click update driver and when it asks if you would like to to check the internet for updated drivers, tell it yes, this time only and continue. After this process, it should either download and install a new driver for your sound card or install the one that was shipped with your computer. If this does not work, please let me know and we will check the next possible problem.

Please remember to rate this solution.

I'm not sure if it was Guru's advice, or the additional steps I took. But after following Guru's advice, in the same area I scrolled down to Services and Applications, clicked on Services, then scrolled down to Windows Audio, double clicked that and re-stared Windows Audio. I'm not sure what it was that worked, but it did! Thanks!

SOURCE: The Audio of my Asus notebook laptop was uninstalled.What should I do? My laptop now has no audio.

The audio driver should be on the install disc and if not go to the asus site and download it and reinstall it.Toy may also want to look in your recycle bin if you have not emptied it .

SOURCE: Hi, I have some

The problem may be the fact that you have two drivers loaded simultaneously. Try removing each one separately, rebooting your computer and using the other one to see if that fixes the problem.

Depending on what operating system (OS) you are using, you will need to go into the Control Panel and select "Add or Remove Programs" to remove the driver.

If you are not able to remove it that way, you can restore your computer to an earlier configuration using the Restore command. Note: buttons you click on are shown here in UPPERCASE.

If you're using Windows XP, click START, then RUN and type the following, without the quote marks:
"%systemRoot%\System32\Restore\Rstrui.exe"

then click OK.
On the "Welcome to System Restore" page, click "Restore my computer to an earlier time" (if it's not already selected) and click NEXT.

On the "Select a Restore Point" page, click the system checkpoint, which should be a date earlier than when you first loaded the driver(s). In the "On this list select the restore point" area, click an entry that is named "Guided Help (Registry Backup)", and then click NEXT. If a "System Restore" message appears that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make, click OK.

On the "Confirm Restore Point Selection" page, click NEXT. System Restore then restores the previous Windows XP configuration and restarts the computer. Log on. When the "System Restore confirmation" page appears, click OK.

You can use the System Restore command to undo many different problems caused by loading programs, drivers, etc. I believe the procedure is similar if you are using Vista or Windows 7, but the window names may not be exactly the same.

I hope this helps.
Good luck!

Acer aspire net book audio is warbled


When trying to isolate and diagnose the specific cause of any computer fault, think back to when the computer was working normally and then list any hardware, software or settings changes between that time and when the fault you are experiencing first appeared.

Sound/Audio problems are often caused by simple settings errors. Before trying anything else, think if you have connected any new device or installed or used any new software on the computer that is Sound/Audio-related (such as a cellphone, an MP3/MP4/MP5 player, a bluetooth device, a microphone, a Voice Over Internet Protocol [VOIP] Headset or multiplexing device, a dial-up modem or dial-up modem based transaction or stock keeping or postal franking device, a multimedia player, a speech recognition program, media playing software, fax/phone software, etc., etc. Any of these sorts of devices or software are capable of changing a computer's default Sound/Audio settings.


Reset the Sound/Audio to the correct default device - start -> control panel -> sounds speech and audio devices/hardware and sounds -> audio -> select main audio on-board chip or sound card from the Playback Device drop down menu or the panel of different device options -> apply -> OK -> restart computer.


Quite often nothing more needs to be done to restore Sound/Audio that was disabled by settings changes or errors.



If none of the above suggestions solves the problem, then the cause might be a possible Sound/Audio Driver conflict, corruption or file deletion issue.
Uninstall all components of the installed Sound/Audio Driver from Add or Remove Programs/ Uninstall a Program or its equivalent in your Operating System - > restart the computer -> reinstall the Sound/Audio Driver from the Drivers and Utilities Installation Disc or download, save (so as to create and keep on the computer the Sound/Audio Driver Setup Files in case of future Sound/Audio Driver problems) and install it from the Support and Download pages of the Acer website -> restart the computer.


The Sound/Audio Driver for this model can be downloaded from here once you enter your precise Model Number (usually to be found on a label on the underside of the netbook) :

.pgI lost my sound from


Hello,

Please make sure that the sound is not in mute. If it's unmute and still has no sound, try to uninstall and reinstall the audio driver. Drivers are located in device manager. Simply type device manager on the search box to find it. In the device manager, expand the sound video and game controller category, usually the audio driver is the realtek high definition audio driver or smart audio. Uninstall the driver and restart the laptop to take effect the changes. Restarting the laptop will automatically reinstall the audio driver. Test the sound.

Hope this works.

I dont know why that when i use voipcheap the sounds like a computer sounds. However, when i use skype to talk with my friend, the sounds is normal~ can i ask why?


Hello,

If the sound quality is cheap, then you may try to uninstall and reinstall the audio driver. Go to start/type device manager on the search box/look for sound, video and game controller/uninstall the high definition driver or the audio drive, do not check the delete box. Once the driver is uninstalled, restart the NB. The audio driver will be reinstalled automatically once laptop is restarted. Then test the sound.

Hope it works.

Cannot uninstall sound card.


You will need to go to the device manager in order to uninstall the sound drivers. Right click on "my computer", then click on properties at the bottom. Open the hardware tab, then click on the box that reads device manager. This is where you need to be in order to uninstall the drivers or sound card. Once in the device manager, you can right click on the audio or sound device and choose uninstall, or you can open it, open the drivers tab, then click on the uninstall drivers box. Try this and let me know.
