    That means that your onboard speakers are bad. The speakers are usually part of the bezel

If you press the FN key + F8 key they are the ones that toggles the speakers on and off. There is nothing wrong with your speakers.

No sound


Hello,
  1. Did you have the correct audio-drivers installed on the system?
  2. Maybe the speakers are muted in the audio settings?
  3. You could try to attach some external speakers, such as an amplifier or a headphone to the laptop.


Greetings...

Why does the audio cut out on acer z5700 speakers when you connect to a source at the audio output in the back.(expect this only when you connect headphones to headphone input)


When you connect headphones to your computer the computer will only send sound through the headphones and not allow sound to come out of the speakers. this is the way almost all audio drivers are setup, it detects the speakers and the headphones as 2 different devices and will only play sound through one (headphones first and if there are no headphones then speakers).

The only way I know to resolve this (and I hate this suggestion) is to purchase a headphone splitter. Connect the speakers and the headphones through the splitter, the quality of the splitter will determine the quality of the sound.

You could try going to the audio driver options (if there is any program installed by the audio driver) to see if you can get it to play through both but with both my Acer laptops I have been unsuccessful.

Hope this helps.

No sound


Here are the tips to fix no sound problem:

1. Double-click the sound icon in the lower-right corner of the desktop. This loads the audio options menu onto the screen. Make sure none of the audio options are set to "Mute." If they are, uncheck the options, and the sound returns.
.
2. Disconnect any headphones you have connected to the "Line-out" port on the Acer laptop. If headphones or anything else is connected to the line-out, the audio is not going to be produced by the computer's built-in speakers.

3. Connect your computer to a local power source. If the battery is running low, the laptop often stops producing audio as a method to extend the battery life.

4. Download updated drivers for the Acer computer. If the sound drivers are out of date, the audio is not going to project from the speakers properly. Navigate to the Acer website, choose your country of origin, then click "Service and Support." Click "Driver Download" in the left corner of the screen and click the kind of computer you have. Choose the exact make and model of your computer and all of the available drivers are displayed. Click the audio driver and it downloads to your computer. Double-click the downloaded file, then follow the prompts to install the updated driver. Restart the computer and the audio now plays correctly on the system.

Acer laptop no sound in headphone jack


I have an Acer Aspire 7720z and have had the same problem. I am assuming your OS is Vista.

Go to Control Panel -open "Sounds" folder and you should see "Headphones" in the list under "Speakers". There will be a green tick on the "Speakers" symbol. Right click on the headphones symbol and then click "Set as Default device". Click OK and the headphone socket should now work correctly. It sorted my problem. If you want to go back to using the crappy internal speakers follow the same procedure setting the speakers as your default device.
Enjoy.

I have acer extensa 4220 laptop when i plug in head phones in the laptop the sound still keeps on coming from the built in speakers and not the head phones


khalid276,

I had this problem also on my acer aspire 5520. This laptop has 2 3.5mm jacks. It was a bit embarrassing, but I had the headphones plugged into the input jack. Make sure that you have the head phones jack plugged into the correct jack.

I hope this helps!

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