As 24seven suggests the ACER utility should enable you to change the hotkey function, it is called the 'acer launch manger' and when you open it up it gives options to browse for the programme you wish the button to open.

If you have programmable keyboard media buttons, then there should be an ACER windows utility that allows you to set the feature for each button. if not installed, then go to ACER website and search for your model then available system utilities

How to reset denon AVR-S500BT


If your media player is a PC always make sure the receiver is turned on before or at the same time as the media player.
Some windows based PC's have issues detecting speakers if they are turned on before. Unplugging the cable and plugging in again helps.

if your media player is not a PC, never mind. But you would not believe how many problems there are with HDMI cables, if you can borrow one to test, or use one from something else you own just to see if that's it.

have you tried your media player in a different port?

Choppy audio windows vista


If audio is choppy it indicates the processor is "busy" and it is buffering due to some other process using up resources and keeping the machine busy so it cannot stream the audio properly. Possibly check the running processes and see which ones have high cpu usage and turn them off, then try it. It may also be a media player issue - have you tried updating the media player or reinstalling it - sometimes installing a service pack will cause a problem with the actual media player - reinstalling them usually fixes that problem.

What does no media player mean!


Hi,


With every operating system you usually have a media player to play music. No media player means that either you do not have a media player that may play songs or you have a corrupted one.

Note - Media player is a Microsoft's product. You may have Winamp, Realplayer but not Windows Media Player.

Any further help, let me know.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

Make sure the audio device is enabled in the device manager, if it is try using the device manager to resolve your sound problem's by updating the driver, or it may be a conlficting issue with the driver, the device manager should show if the device is wroking properly, if it is'nt try using the troubleshooting tab to resolve the problem, it could be configured wrong, or you may need to do a window's update, if you think it's a compatibilty issue here's a link where you can check to see if it's compatible with xp, http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/hcl/default.mspx

FM tuner has no audio. the songs do have audio. What happened??


Probably faulty headphone jacks/controller, but reset all the defaults in the menu to be sure. Additionally you can try these soft fixes, but they probably don't apply to your situation:
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to the Sandisk website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out.
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

No sound in my Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop


If the issue is no sound after reinstallation of Windows, then your issue is most likely a driver issue. Many items in the system will function with native windows drivers but the audio on a I6400 is not one of them. Installation of drivers in the correct order is critical to Dell portables functioning correctly. Correct driver order is:

Notebook System Software.
Chipset Utility
Video Driver
Audio Driver
Modem Driver
Network Driver
Wireless Driver
Touchpad Driver
Quickset Utility

All other applications and drivers (MS Office, Printer driver etc)

This system is also equipped with Media Direct capability. For Media Direct to function, the system's HDD must be prepared using the Media Direct installation CD, then WIndows installed, then the Media Direct application. If you have no plans to use media direct, this can be skipped (Most people do)
