First check all the volume controlls and mute function on the laptop ,make sure you dont just have it turned down low or muted.
Next, plug some headphones or an earbud into the headphone jack and check to see if that works.
If you have no sound in either place:Click START - SETTINGS - CONTROLL PANEL - SYSTEM - click the HARDWARE tab at the top - click device manager - scroll down to where you see "sound, video & game controllers - click the + next to it, this will reveal your sound card and if there is no listing of it or a YELLOW exclamation point or question mark, this means it has no driver , is missing a driver or has a wrong driver installed. If ANY of these yellow marks are present, right click on the item thats marked and click on roll back driver, this should reinstall the last driver that was working.
If there is NO driver, you will have to post your laptop brand and model and i will find the correct driver for you and post a link here with instructions.
Hope this is helpful - please ost again if you need further assistance or rate if it solves things for you.

No sound my my Acer Netbook Laptop


hmm it seems one or two things happened the sound was muted or there's a driver issue with the computer's onboard sound try uninstalling the sound driver from the device manager and reboot this should make the computer reinstall the audio drivers for the laptop's sound card (note microsoft will have its own HD sound card driver files to get sound working look on acer's website to get the native sound card drivers for your pc if you wish)

My Altec Lansing AVS 300 external computer speakers quit working on my laptop. They work fine on another laptop. Please suggest a solution to get these speakers to work on my computer.


Check if the sound card is correctly setup with drivers.

Do this by going to Control Panel, Device Manager and check on sound cards.

Can you hear sounds from regular laptop speakers??

If not, the problem is in the sound card, which is already integrated on the motherboard.

This makes it harder to fix, unless your laptop is under warranty.

If it is software related to the OS or conflict with other devices, you are more likely to fix it.

God Bless You!

A distorted sound is coming from my speakers even if i connect speakers


It is a possibility that you are getting feedback from a device that is near by. Possibly a cell phone or other device. I would recommend moving the computer to a different location and removing all electronic devices from beside the computer, then reconnecting speakers.

It is also possible that you have a bad sound card. If that is the case, you will need to purchase another sound card and replace the old one. I have included instructions on how to replace your sound card below:

Here is a site where you can purchase the sound card you may be in need of:
http://www.meritline.com/laptop-sound-card-usb-port---p-39078.aspx?source=nextaghdac

There are other sites such as Ebay where you can also purchase the sound card. The type of sound card you need is a PCMCIA Sound Card for an Acer Laptop.

Here are instructions on how to install a new sound card:
    Installing a PCMCIA Sound Card in Your Acer Laptop
  1. Step 1 Locate the PCMCIA card slot on your computer. On an Acer laptop, the slot may be either on the left or the right side of the laptop.
  2. Step 2 Remove the PCMCIA card cover by pressing the "Eject" button and pulling the cover out.
  3. Step 3 Insert your PCMCIA sound card with the connectors facing in and the upper label facing up. Some PCMCIA cards will have an arrow to make it easier to orient the card correctly.
  4. Step 4 Press the PCMCIA card gently into place.
  5. Step 5 Windows will recognize the PCMCIA card and search for the needed software.
  6. Step 6 If your sound card came with an installation CD, insert it in the CD slot and follow the instructions to install applications and utilities for use with your new sound card.
    Installing a USB Sound Card in Your Acer Laptop
  7. Step 1 Turn the computer on.
  8. Step 2 Plug the USB sound card into the appropriate USB plug on your laptop.
  9. Step 3 Wait for the computer to recognize the new USB device.
  10. Step 4 Insert the sound card manufacturer's CD if prompted to do so.
If a sound card is not the issue, then you possibly have circuitry issues on your laptop motherboard. For this issue, you may need to consult a certified technician at your local computer repair shop.

(If you are not a professional or are used to opening your laptop, I would recommend taking it to a local computer repair shop for a certified technician to look at this issue. Do bare in mind if you have a warranty, opening your laptop and not being a certified professional would void any warranty agreement you have with your manufacturer)

No Sound


Sound requires two things on a computer with intrgrated sound, like a laptop machine. It requires the sound software(this is what manages and runs the sound). It also requires a driver.This is the software needed for the computer sound software to communicate with the sound chip(hardware)  Hope this helps explain it.    If you have no sound and would like assistance, please give us the make and model of you laptop computer. Thank you .

Speakers do not work but rearly they will?


What type computer? Vista or XP? I take it you have X-530 speakers?

Go to control panel,and check device manager to see if you have any problems. If not, click on Hardware and Sound, then on Sound, and you will see the "Playback" tab. Highlight "speakers" by clicking on it, then click on "configure" to see how your laptop speakers are configured. If you have a laptop, your internal laptop speakers should be turned off. Configure them for your external speakers and test the sound there. If you need to use your laptop speakers (say you take your laptop somewhere without your external speakers) you will need to reconfigure your sound to the laptop speakers. Let me know if you have further problems--you may need to update your sound driver.

Have you done maintenance on your computer, such as getting rid of unnecessary files and defragmenting the hard drive? If not, go to "applications" in your program files to do so.
