How to change soubd tone on acer aspire one

  • Find out which audio controller is installed on the system. Go to the "Control Panel" and double-click on the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. Click on the "Audio" tab to see what is listed for the default device for sound playback.
  • Download driver and software updates directly from Acer's website (see Resources). Save the files to a folder, and then run the setup program to install the software.

  • Download and install a new software driver for your laptop's on-board audio controller. Many audio controllers in Acer Aspire laptops use the AC97 Audio Codec driver. Go to the Realtek website and click on the "Downloads" tab to see available software (see Resources).

  • Adjust the sound using the Master Volume setting. Right-click on the audio icon on the toolbar and select "Open Volume Control." Use the Master Volume and Wave input settings to adjust the volume of the audio that is being heard.

  • Use a software program such as the Realtek Sound Effect Manager to control and adjust the laptop's audio settings. There should be an icon on the desktop or toolbar, but you can also find the program in the Control Panel as well. The program contains an equalizer with presets to choose from as well as mixer and audio I/O options.

Audio is extremely low when plaing media. Tried to the voulume up on the audio settings and the players as well without any effect.

You have options;

You can try reinstalling your audio drivers if it used to be loud before and now is not for your model.

Or you can use audio booster programs.

At this link, you need to select the one you want (i am assuming you want windows media player if you have that, you didn't specify what you were running on, it is the first one on left)

Download the file,

Run it

These types of programs are usually free and do help.

Other than that; I have a really cheap pair of surround sound speakers i plug in when i listen to music. You can order them online or pick them up from places like Kmart; Walmart; Target etc.

If this solution helped you; please rate it. It only takes a second and doesn't cost anything, but is greatly appreciated!

Re Sony VAIO F12 (new unit): Audio is barely audible using onboard and external speakers, even though volume bar indicates volume is at highest level. Any way to increase audio volume? Thanks.

1. Yes, check to see if you have the volume up for the wave file turned up that is on the program you are using to listen to the Mp3 or sound wave with.
2. check the speaker connector/ Use another speaker that is know to be good and test. Use a set of earphone in the output jack also to test the output.
If these things are doing the same then you have failing sound card and it needs replacement.

My new Acer Aspire one D 250 laptop has a very low volume output . All the volume controls are up including wave output but with no success

Right click on the speaker icon in the task bar, lower right hand corner of the screen.
Select "Adjust Audio Properties."
In the popup box, go down to "Speaker Volume." Click "Advanced"
In the new pop-up, make sure that "Laptop speakers" is selected. Click all the OKs you need to in order to establish that setting and clear out of "Adjust audio properties."
Now you SHOULD have much better sound from your speakers.
For some reason, my D250 keeps defaulting to "Stereo headset" which produces much lower volume sounds when a headset is not inserted. So low that you can't watch and hear a video through the speakers and understand what is being said. Once you switch to "laptop speakers" you'll be able to hear stuff. It won't be high volume, these things just don't put out high volume, but it will be reasonably audible, if this was the problem.

No sound

To troubleshoot a no sound issue first you must check your device manager to make sure the audio device is installed properly.

To goto the device manager in XP:
Right click my computer>Properties > Hardware Tab > Device manager.

Look for your audio device in the list under "Sound, Video and game controllers". If it has a exclamation mark or question mark beside it you will need to download the most recent drivers from the manufacturer's website.

Next step is to goto
start>programs>accessories>entertainment>volume control
make sure that Wave nor Master Volume is not muted, and both are turned up.

Third step is to check for onboard volume control, there might be volume controls on the system hardware itself.

If you say that external speakers work and not the built in speakers, then the headphone jack that you plug the speakers into may be defective. As it is always detecting something plugged into it and never turns the internal speakers on.

Low volume

> Open Control Panel
> Sound Properties
> Speaker Properties
> Enhancements

Loudness Equalization : on

Equalizer: Choose one (Jazz seems to be loudest setting but sounds of hallway effect so I use powerful for clarity.)

This has more than doubled the level of volume on my acer 5570.
