Re: Only one speaker working - acer computer speakers
1 step: kindly check the connection of the left speaker if it is plugged to the right speaker properly.
2 step: Then check the balance under volume control if it has been set in the middle.
3 step: If possible check the speaker on some other device(cd player etc) other than your pc and see if the left speaker still doesn't have any sound.
if so kindly replace them

Your computer should have a little speaker icon in the lower right hand corner of the screen on the taskbar. Click on it and check to make sure that volume slider is set to the maximum volume.
Also check the media player program that you are using for a seperate volume control since most players like Windows Media Player or VLC Media Player will also have their own dedicated volume control somewhere right on the media player window itself. So just make sure this second volume control is also set to maximum.
Otherwise that may simply be as much as your built in laptop speakers are able to achieve. Very few laptops will have loud high performance speakers built-in. Most people simply buy an aftermarket external powered speaker system to plug into the headphone jack of their laptop if they want / need loud high quality sound.
Here are some links to a few models of external powered computer speaker systems that are currently available on EBay:
1. Right click on the speaker icon in taskbar and select volume control options. 2. put a check mark on "All devices currently playing sound". 3. Make sure you have "The default communication device unchecked". 4. place a check mark on speakers/headphones

There are some possible reasons why the sound is not working. It could be the volume control is in "MUTE", or the right sound card is not selected in the volume properties, or the speaker is defective.
Here's what you need to do:
1. Try to connect an external 2-channeled PC speaker. The computer should recognize the speaker and the sound should be transferred to the PC speaker. If the sound works on the PC external speaker, then you know that the volume control is NOT in mute and the sound card is selected. It means also that the built-in speakers could be defective.
2. If the same problem occur after connecting an external PC speaker, check the volume control, and make sure that the "MUTE" box is not checked. Then adjust the master volume.
* If everything's properly configured, but there's still no sound, check the volume properties under the Control Panel. Be sure that the correct sound card driver is selected. If that did not help, try to re-install the sound card driver.
* And the last option, contact the manufacturer and have them fix it for you.
For no sound issues please ensure if the speakers are working fine by connecting them with a known good device other than the computer... If they are fine then please check the connection of the speakers if they are intact (for details on connection please check the manual that came with the speakers...if its a two set of speaker the left connects to the right and the right connects to the power and another connector goes to the line out which is green in color at the back of the computer)and if the speakers are receiving the power properly also if the volume level is set to a level that can be heard...please ensure that the audio is turned on in BIOS if the computer has and integrated soundcard....when the computer boots to the desktop check volume control to see if any of the mute option is checked if so uncheck it and also setthe volume level to high...in case the volume control doesnot open you will need to install the sound drivers...also ensure that the windows audio service is started in services you can check the same by clicking start>run>type"SERVICES.MSC">WINDOWS AUDIO if not started or disabled right click go to properties and then enable the service and click start.for the appropriate driver please specify the soundcard or if integrated then specify the motherboard details
1. Are your speakers plugged in to a power source? 2. Are they turned on? 3. Is the volume turned up on the speakers? 4. Are your speakers plugged into the (usually green) audio port on your computer?
5. Go into control panel, sounds and audio devices and check to make sure that sound is not on "mute". 5. On the Audio tab, check to make sure it shows a default sound device for each item. If not, either your sound card is malfunctioning or you need to download and install a current driver from the Acer website.
Try right clicking on yout Volume Icon in the system tray (where your clock is). Click on Open Volume Control. Make sure you have some audio playing, then just go through each channel and mute each one, 1 by 1 until the echo has gone. If that don't work, then again, right click on Volume Icon in Tray, click on Adjust Audio Properties, then under speaker settings, select advance, then choose Desktop Stereo Speakers, under the Speaker Setup Options.
One of those should work. If it is your Mic causing the Echo, then you would get loads of feedback if you whack up the volume. If you don't get the feedback, then it's more then likely the Speaker Setup or some Sound FX is enabled through your Sound Card Software.
