    I'm assuming you just need a driver...

    What kind of sound card do you have?

It'snot worth the cost to have it repaired. It will be cheaper and easier in the long run to just get a new card

A distorted sound is coming from my speakers even if i connect speakers


It is a possibility that you are getting feedback from a device that is near by. Possibly a cell phone or other device. I would recommend moving the computer to a different location and removing all electronic devices from beside the computer, then reconnecting speakers.

It is also possible that you have a bad sound card. If that is the case, you will need to purchase another sound card and replace the old one. I have included instructions on how to replace your sound card below:

Here is a site where you can purchase the sound card you may be in need of:
http://www.meritline.com/laptop-sound-card-usb-port---p-39078.aspx?source=nextaghdac

There are other sites such as Ebay where you can also purchase the sound card. The type of sound card you need is a PCMCIA Sound Card for an Acer Laptop.

Here are instructions on how to install a new sound card:
    Installing a PCMCIA Sound Card in Your Acer Laptop
  1. Step 1 Locate the PCMCIA card slot on your computer. On an Acer laptop, the slot may be either on the left or the right side of the laptop.
  2. Step 2 Remove the PCMCIA card cover by pressing the "Eject" button and pulling the cover out.
  3. Step 3 Insert your PCMCIA sound card with the connectors facing in and the upper label facing up. Some PCMCIA cards will have an arrow to make it easier to orient the card correctly.
  4. Step 4 Press the PCMCIA card gently into place.
  5. Step 5 Windows will recognize the PCMCIA card and search for the needed software.
  6. Step 6 If your sound card came with an installation CD, insert it in the CD slot and follow the instructions to install applications and utilities for use with your new sound card.
    Installing a USB Sound Card in Your Acer Laptop
  7. Step 1 Turn the computer on.
  8. Step 2 Plug the USB sound card into the appropriate USB plug on your laptop.
  9. Step 3 Wait for the computer to recognize the new USB device.
  10. Step 4 Insert the sound card manufacturer's CD if prompted to do so.
If a sound card is not the issue, then you possibly have circuitry issues on your laptop motherboard. For this issue, you may need to consult a certified technician at your local computer repair shop.

(If you are not a professional or are used to opening your laptop, I would recommend taking it to a local computer repair shop for a certified technician to look at this issue. Do bare in mind if you have a warranty, opening your laptop and not being a certified professional would void any warranty agreement you have with your manufacturer)

How to repair a sound card


Hello sir, hi, I see that you are interested in the art of servicing, for us technicians we don't usually repair a soundcard, we replace the entire thing, but if the troubles are the port, contacts, some audio integrated IC's, it can be repaired and replaced, but if the trouble is the chipset, memory and sound card bios, we don't, those parts are out of reach, and can only be bought from the manufacturer or salvage from other sound cards.
You also need troubleshooting equipments, which are expensive. which in the long run is, better buy the new one. Welcome to the world of headaches and stresses, but its a fulfilling hobby. = )

I have no sound event when I login in window 2000 and logout even if I assign the wright sound in sound and multimedia


Creative Labs is one of the best sound cards ever made but all with the same bladie problem, they do not sign there IRQ values right. It is the address the computer uses to know where the video card or the sound card or the usb ports are. Vista solved this problem.
Hint:
Because the IRQ is the same as one of the other hardware there is a address clash (the same IRQ values).
Easy way to repair this problem is to switch this card to another slot it will change the IRQ adress and your problem should be repaired.
If this did not repair the problem ask someone who knows how to assign IRQ dresses to hardware.
