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.

what happens when you plug the speakers in the green port? You might want to try the other audio ports because on a few new computers i have seen the speakers have to be plugged in a different hole. also make sure the speakers are plugged up to the electric plug.
