Hi,

Make sure you also install the Audio driver from Acer. If after installing the Audio driver from Acer it still does not work right click on your speaker icon in the System Tray and select Recording Devices. Highlight your microphone device in the list the click Properties. Click on the Levels tab and make sure the microphone is not muted and the volume is turned up.

How to turn microphone on


Acer laptops feature on-board microphones for sound recording purposes within Windows.
Since an internal microphone can be a very handy tool for communication and speech-to text capabilities, working without a functional mic can severely hinder work flow for many users.
If you do not have any prior knowledge of how to repair a non-functional microphone within Windows, you may feel the need to send off your Acer laptop for repair.
There is no need, because even the most novice Acer user can do it.

Go to "Start," "Control Panel," then double-click on "Add/remove Programs."
Click on the "Windows Setup" tab, "Multimedia," then select "Details."

Choose "Sound Recorder" from that screen, then click "OK."
The Sound Recorder application will begin to run. Step 4 will begin the microphone test.

Click "Record," which is the circle located on the right side of the user interface.
If you hardware device is functional, you should see the recording display begin to move.

Acer 5760 low volume


Some program have poor sound quality. Laptops are not known for great sound, the speakers are small by design. I use a Bose SoundDock external speaker system. Take a look : http://www.bose.com/controller?url=/shop_online/digital_music_systems/sounddock_systems/sounddock/index.jsp

Make sure you have installed the Acer's audio driver for your model laptop. Test the audio by playing a music CD.
SKYPE MICROPHONE PROBLEM
If the person cannot hear you then, either your microphone driver not installed or not working OR the microphone is not configured in Skype.
To test your microphone then click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound recorder. Then record your voice and then play it back. If this is OK then the microphone need to be configured in Skype.
To configure the microphone - Open Skype - Tools - Options - Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.Also while you are in the Audio Settings select the your Audio card in Speakers.

I can hear the sound in headphone but built in speaker are not working. what to do


Hi, Check the following,
  • Speakers, connecting cables and Sound Card are working fine by connecting to another computer.
  • OR
  • If the connection ok increase your volume and open the cable from the pc.
    Now you will touch the stereo jack, can you can listen a sound when touch the jack. If you will not get any sound, think there is the problem in your amplifier or audio system has not any voltage. To confirm the voltage check by multi miter or can go any local Technician .If the voltage is ok, think your sound system defected and should go to Technician.

  • If your sound system is ok
  • Speaker Cable connect to an audio port (Audio/Video port in system box).
Hope this helps ,

Audio/volume problem


First, go to control panel - > Audio devices, then right-click any empty spot on the sound device, and show disabled or disconnected devices. If "Speakers" shows up, right-click and choose set as default (or something similiar). If this does not work, just reinstall your audio drivers. Right-click my computer -> Properties -> Hardware - > Device manager - > Sound, then find the sound cards manufacturer name, and right-click an press uninstall.
