No sound but volume working


Hello,

If your computer's volume control seems working but you don't hear any sound from your computer, then you have two possible problems.

1. Driver of the sound (software).
2. Hardware (the sound card or speaker)

before doing any troubleshooting, you need to make sure that all media or sound player are not working because there are times when a certain is not producing any sound. You can try playing a DVD, watching youtube or whichever program where you can try your sound. If all aren't working, then go ahead and do the following.

For the software or driver:

Check the device manager for problematic drivers. If you don't know how to find it, then right click on "computer" and you can find it in the drop down menu or you can go to search and just type in device manager. If you see a device with an X or a question mark on it, then it's the driver that's causing the problem. You have two options when you see that: you can either uinstall and reinstall the driver or update the driver to the latest version.

By the way, there is a software that I am currently using which makes my computer to work to an optimum level because the program automatically updates and maintain my computer's drivers. The program is called RadarSync. If I were you, you download it in your computer.

2. Hardware

If it's the sound card or the speaker that's causing the problem, then you need to contact a technician for it.

If you have further questions, please let me know.

I hope this helps.

Acer aspire net book audio is warbled


When trying to isolate and diagnose the specific cause of any computer fault, think back to when the computer was working normally and then list any hardware, software or settings changes between that time and when the fault you are experiencing first appeared.

Sound/Audio problems are often caused by simple settings errors. Before trying anything else, think if you have connected any new device or installed or used any new software on the computer that is Sound/Audio-related (such as a cellphone, an MP3/MP4/MP5 player, a bluetooth device, a microphone, a Voice Over Internet Protocol [VOIP] Headset or multiplexing device, a dial-up modem or dial-up modem based transaction or stock keeping or postal franking device, a multimedia player, a speech recognition program, media playing software, fax/phone software, etc., etc. Any of these sorts of devices or software are capable of changing a computer's default Sound/Audio settings.


Reset the Sound/Audio to the correct default device - start -> control panel -> sounds speech and audio devices/hardware and sounds -> audio -> select main audio on-board chip or sound card from the Playback Device drop down menu or the panel of different device options -> apply -> OK -> restart computer.


Quite often nothing more needs to be done to restore Sound/Audio that was disabled by settings changes or errors.



If none of the above suggestions solves the problem, then the cause might be a possible Sound/Audio Driver conflict, corruption or file deletion issue.
Uninstall all components of the installed Sound/Audio Driver from Add or Remove Programs/ Uninstall a Program or its equivalent in your Operating System - > restart the computer -> reinstall the Sound/Audio Driver from the Drivers and Utilities Installation Disc or download, save (so as to create and keep on the computer the Sound/Audio Driver Setup Files in case of future Sound/Audio Driver problems) and install it from the Support and Download pages of the Acer website -> restart the computer.


The Sound/Audio Driver for this model can be downloaded from here once you enter your precise Model Number (usually to be found on a label on the underside of the netbook) :

My audiodriver not working


The essential thing to diagnose with any computer fault is to think back to when the computer was working normally and then list any hardware, software or settings changes between that time and when the fault first appeared.

Audio problems are often simple settings problems. Before you try anything else think if you have connected any new device or installed or used any new software on the computer that is Audio-related (such as a cellphone, an MP3/MP4/MP5 player, a bluetooth device, a microphone, a Voice Over Internet Protocol [VOIP] Headset or multiplexing device, a dial-up modem or dial-up modem based transaction or stock keeping or postal franking device, a multimedia player, a speech recognition program, media playing software, fax/phone software, etc., etc. Any of these sorts of devices or software are capable of changing a computer's default audio settings.

Often this is all that needs to be done to restore audio that has been disabled by settings changes.


f not then turn your mind to a possible Audio/sound Driver conflict, corruption or deletion.

Uninstall all components of the installed Audio/Sound Driver from Add or Remove Programs/ Uninstall a Program or its equivalent in your Operating System - > restart the computer -> reinstall the Audio/Sound Driver from the Drivers and Utilities Installation Disc or download, save (so as to create and keep on the computer the Sound/Audio Driver Setup Files in case of future Sound/Audio Driver problems) and install it from the Support and Download pages of the Acer website -> restart the computer.

Flash player has several functions on the computer. First, recent computer programs have compartility to flash player making a requirement to achieve functionality. Usually, flash player performs the functions of multimedia display. However, in the absence of an alternative media player for audio videos, flash player takes charge on the computer as multimedia engine. Multimedia functionalities require compatibilities on the computer as a separate entity. For example, CDs or DVDs are played on the computer with separate media requirements than media encoded on the network. A computer may have adobe players or windows media players, iPod players, juke box software's as the media engines on the computer. However, a computer connected to a network of several devices may encounter media malfunction occasionally due to foreign devices requesting multimediedia sharing requiring device to device compartibity to achieve success. Second, flash player is the most recent media design compatible with apple computers and Microsoft computers alike. Flash player is carried over from the adobe reader acrobat as improvement over the years. During the inventions of apple Macs tablets, iPods, flash encoders recognizes the similarities either as defectives requiring integration for media displays to be achieved. For example, flash may function as a replacement program to computers incompatible due to recent innovations. Whenever a media player is malfunction, flash is capable of the missing link. Especially with recently innovated computers, phones, and several devices, flash are necessary software else multimedia would least display. The reasons for such are because several recent software's require flash codes to function appropriately. Third, the computer requires flash media software's to function with the recently introduced internet of several modern devices. Face book is an internet site that provides multimedia manipulations with several devices, in which situation flash player malfunction on a computer may least display any media on the computers. Usually the computer displays a message logo to the user requesting flash codes to be updated or installed for system to achieve media experience. First, a pack of multimedia software's are acquirable on the network elsewhere from the internet site requesting the updates of missing codes. Once messages of missing codes are requested, the entire site requiting accessibility id temporrsarity compromised until update is made usually onto the computer. For example, a computer without flash software's installed would request for an update once face book is being logged onto. Closing the computer internet sites usually provides an appropriate interface to perform downloads from the networks as repair modes before resuming internet face book browsing as before. Keep in mind that, a slightly outdate computer media players would request several complimentary programs installation as flash players are being downloaded. Usually, flash players are replaceable with shockwave players, or where only apple iPods most recent iTunes player replaces the real one player as modern design interface. However also, some media players are incapable of downloads unless the older versions were acquired and installed. For example, windows media player can only be installed as an update of the classic media player. Real one player can only be installed as an update of the juke box player, and finally flash players as an update of adobe acrobat media readers, and shockwave. Keep in mind that in the process of updating media players, software codes known as plug-in may be requested also as complementary. For example, active x plug-in as usually required as missing links to media players were also, direct x plug-in were a prior link for older computers requesting media codes. A computer may have been designed with every compatibly software's for user interface experiences. However, occasionally separate media like CDs and DVDs inserted into the computer disk drivers would require software codes to function. Computer software's usually may have an integrated accompanying media code of player to be installed together on the computer as precautionary measure of malfunctions due to code unavailability on the computer requiring new programs on CDS, DVD disks.

Windows Vista and 7 ( can't remember about XP ) come with native drivers for the webcam so it may be a problem with these. You could try running a system file check by browsing to all programs, accessories, right click on the Command Prompt and select 'Run as Administrator'. Type in the following command and hit return. sfc / scannow
If that doesnt work download and install the software driver for your webcam on the link below. http://www.downloadsource.net/d16952/HP-Pavilion-Webcam-Driver-Windows-Vista-x32-x64/ i hope this works for you.

I Cant hear my videos


A webcam is a piece of hardware, you cannot download it. If it's installed, it should work fine. If you cannot hear any sound, try checking your audio settings, via control panel. There may also be some problems with your webcam software settings, which you can look at when you access the software. Good luck.

Can't locate driver packet for my webcam. what is the designation that I should look for? I lost the webcam when my laptop had to have Vista re-installed.


Hi,

The first thing is that how did you format the computer ?
if you used the recovery manager of the factory shipped recovery media then we can get the drivers back

however, if you formatted the computer with a retail version of the OS then we have to download the drivers from
www.hp.com/support
which may or may not work

Else here are the steps

go to device manager ? the webcam driver should be listed under imaging devices or HID devices. right click and uninstall it
now reinstall it from the recovery manager > advance options > hardware driver reinstallation > select and install.

if it does not work then go to device manager and uninstall all the USB root hubs under USB devices

Do a Bios default.

check with the factory shipped software ( quick play / HP media smart )
