Make sure the speakers are powered , if they have and AC adaptor: the volume on the speakers is turned up so that it's audible. if no power , no amplification.

Here are a few things that you can check to make sure sound is even turned on and drivers are installed:
go to your controll panel, click on system, select the hardware tab at the top, then select device manager.
scroll down to the section labeled "sound video and game controllers" click on the + to expand if neccessary.
if you see a yellow eclamation point ! next to your sound devices' listing , the software (driver) is either not present or corrupt which will cause the speakers not to work. If this is the case , you will need to navigate to Acers' website and download and install the proper drivers for your computer.

check these things and post here again, ill help you with the download process if need be.
Regards.

Speakers stopped working


go to control panel then to sound, double check and see which of your audio components is set as primary output. it's possible that it has changed. if you go to device manager in control panel you can see what type of sound card you have installed. make sure it is set to primary. also if you have multiple audio jacks on the back of the machine make sure that you have the jack plugged into the green plug.

No sound from speakers on acer 6706 desktop


First check you dont have a red line through your speaker on your toolbar. If so click it and "UN-mute it.

Check that the speakers are plugged into the GREEN port on the back of the computer and that the speakers are powered up with the volume at about 1/2 way.

Open volume control.

When the box with all the sliders opens up click on OPTIONS (top left)
Click PROERTIES


Make sure that Volume controls, Wave, SW Synth, CD PLayer, Line IN, and MIC all show on there and that the volume sliders are about half way up.

Make sure noe of the sliders have ticks at the bottom, if so UNTICK them.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else unles you know you want that item)

Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.

You should now have sound out of the speakers.

If not double check that you have no problems with your hardware from the device manager.

Computer speakers no sound


I'm assuming Windows XP on a PC Desktop but the concepts are the same no matter what operating system.

1. Are your speakers plugged in to a power source?
2. Are they turned on?
3. Is the volume turned up on the speakers?
4. Are your speakers plugged into the (usually green) audio port on your computer? 5. Go into control panel, sounds and audio devices and check to make sure that sound is not on "mute".
5. On the Audio tab, check to make sure it shows a default sound device for each item. If not, either your sound card is malfunctioning or you need to download and install a current driver from the Acer website.

No Sound Now on Computer


Might be trivial, but try the volume controls, that little speaker icon on the Windows task bar.
