No audio output installed in my aspire 5100 laptop


Suggest you download the Audio driver, AND install it.

[ A Driver is a small piece of software written, so that the Operating System can 'communicate' with a device.

Windows XP and Windows 7 are just two examples of an O/S.
The audio chipset soldered to your motherboard is a device ]

Acer Support > Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook PC > Downloads and Support Documents page,

http://support.acer.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=44

You can see there are 5 versions of Audio drivers listed.
How to know which one to use?

Click on them one by one, and look.

1) The first one listed shows it is for Windows XP, and the 32-bit usual version.
(XP_86 )

If you have XP Home or Pro use this one. (And NOT a 64-bit version of Pro)

2) The second one listed is for Windows Vista, and the 32-bit version.
(Vistax86)

Go on.

3) The third Audio driver listed is for Windows Vista also. It is also for a 32-bit version of Vista. However this one is a newer version, and has bugs worked out over the older version listed above.

For laptops using Windows Vista, and the 32-bit version, this is the one to use.

4) The fourth one listed is for Windows XP, and the usual regular 32-bit version.
However it is an older version. The version in Number 1 above is newer.
The one to use.

5) The fifth audio driver file listed is for the Windows Media Center Edition. (MCE)

It is an older version, but the only one listed for Windows MCE.

[ Notice all audio drivers are for a Realtek audio device.
You have a Realtek audio chipset soldered to your motherboard ]

How to know which version of Windows you have?

A) For Windows XP left-click on Start, then right-click on My Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.

When the System Properties window comes up, you will see what version of Windows XP you have.

If it is Windows XP Pro, and does NOT show 64bit, it is a 32-bit O/S.
(The usual)

B) Windows Vista and Windows 7:
Left-click on the Windows logo button, then right-click on Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.

If it is 64-bit it will say so.

Going back to the pop-up small window, that comes up on the right.
The driver file.

Make sure there is a green dot in the small circle, to the left of -
Save File.
If not left-click in the empty circle to the left of - Save File.

Now go below, and click on OK.

A small window will come up on the left.
In the heading of this small window, tells you where the audio driver file will download to.

It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.
Write it down.

[ For Vista and Win7 it will be either Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads ]

Desktop: The audio driver file will be on your desktop screen.

My Documents: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents.

[ For Vista and Win7;
Left-click on the Windows logo button, then on Documents ]

Downloads: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents.
DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

[ For Vista and Win7;
Left-click on the Windows logo button. Then left-click on Documents.
DOUBLE-click on Downloads ]


When you see the audio driver file, DOUBLE-click right on it.
In the next 3 small windows click on;
Next, Next, and Finish.

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart the computer.

Why does the audio cut out on acer z5700 speakers when you connect to a source at the audio output in the back.(expect this only when you connect headphones to headphone input)


When you connect headphones to your computer the computer will only send sound through the headphones and not allow sound to come out of the speakers. this is the way almost all audio drivers are setup, it detects the speakers and the headphones as 2 different devices and will only play sound through one (headphones first and if there are no headphones then speakers).

The only way I know to resolve this (and I hate this suggestion) is to purchase a headphone splitter. Connect the speakers and the headphones through the splitter, the quality of the splitter will determine the quality of the sound.

You could try going to the audio driver options (if there is any program installed by the audio driver) to see if you can get it to play through both but with both my Acer laptops I have been unsuccessful.

Hope this helps.

My laptop brings out no sound


Go to the Control Panel - click on Sounds and Audio Devices - click on the Sounds tab - click on any of the Program events and click the play button. If you hear a sound from the speakers the audio driver is correctly installed. Also connect a headphone to the laptop and repeat this test.
If you don't hear any sounds and the play button is greyed out, it means the correct version of the audio driver wasn't installed.
You can check if this is true - go to Control Panel - System - Hardware tab - Device Manager and look for any devices that have a yellow ? against the device. This indicates a device driver is required to make this device work.
You need to download the correct device driver for your model laptop, and it must be a XP or Vista version that matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop.

Downgrade Acer M1641 from Vista home premium to Windows XP


Its a driver incompatibility issue. Many hardware components designed for Vista are incompatible with XP. This means that the Realtek audio driver may be the Vista version. Also, some hardware has of yet no XP drivers, so your audio components were designed for Vista only.
While it may be possible to "force" the driver to work, it may involve a number of hacks to the Windows registry and other files.
