Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

Internal Speakers Are Not Found

When I shutdown my laptop (Acer Apire 3002LCi) and start it back up 90% of the time the speakers don't work. I have to go to the trouble shoot which tells me to delete the speakers and reinstall them ... Every time! ... It get's annoying!. Is there anything I can do ... myself... to stop this? Thanks Erin

When you say you have to re-install them, are you actually installing the sound drivers from the acer restore programme or cd, or are you just letting windows find them(the sound driver) each time you go through the process of deleting them. Try installing drivers from the acer website to see if there is any newer driver versions If it continues, you may have to restore the original laptop settings back to factory default, assuming it hasn't done this since the day of setup, but make sure you back up all settings and documents to cd or dvd first.

My internal speakers for my Acer Aspire have suddenly stopped working. However, when I plug in my external speakers, there is not problem. Please advise. Thanks

Go into the speaker icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen and click on it and get to the mixer. In there make sure the speakers aren't muted.

If it is muted then click on it to unmute it and you should have your sound back.

If you don't have your sound back then that means either the speakers are bad or because the internal speakers hook up to the motherboard, the mohterboard could be bad.

Sound problem - Acer Aspire 5920

I assume you are using Windows Vista as ships with Aspire 5920's. Try the following to make sure that Windows is using the correct output options:
  1. Click on the Start Menu and go to Control Panel
  2. From Control Panel click on Hardware and Sound
  3. Click on the heading Sound and the sound configuration box will appear.
  4. The first tab is called Playback and allows you to select a playback device.  You should find your external speakers and internal speakers listed.  
  5. Click the external speakers and then click on the "set default" button to make sure that the sound is played back through those instead of your internals.

Acer 5610 sound problems

Hi, It is possible that: 1. You may have recently installed an add-on/external device such as a multimedia keyboard which changed the audio output from internal to external; 2. The laptop's internal speaker might have gone dead (highly unlikely but still a possibility) - try plugging in external speakers or a headset and check; 3. Most if not all laptops uses a female stereo babyphone jack to connect to external speakers. This jack has a built-in switch that cuts off internal speaker if an external is plug in. If you are using eternal or headset from time to time, it is possible that the switch might have locked to external and does not switch back to the internal; 4. You may have a hardware issue specifically the sound card/chipset. This of course would require an inshop repair which may be better off with an authorized service center. At worst is have the entire laptop replace if it is confirmed to be a hardware issue. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
