I've been looking around the web because of this problem and it is very common in this system. I've installed new drivers, both from Acer and RealTek, with no success. More than likely your onboard sound card over heated and burned up, as did mine. This necessitates either a new MOBO, which can cost almost as much as the laptop did new, or there is a company,, that will replace the bad components on your board, i.e. transistors, diodes, etc., with new ones of a higher quality. That's the route I'm going with.

My audio is not working

Check that your sound is not muted.If it isnt, or isnt showing then go into control panel-> sound devices and check that you have driver installed or is working properly. If there is no audio codec, install it from your motherboard disc.If it isnt working properly, uninstall the sound driver and reboot laptop.Sound drivers should reinstall

The sound isnt working at all

When did the problem start? Did it ever work? What operating system are you using?

If the problem occured recently, you might be able to use System Restore to get it working again. Within Windows, click on Start then Run. Type msconfig then click the System Restore Button. Choose a date when the sound worked.

It would help to know if the problem persists, so that a possible hardware glitch can be troubleshot

Hi my pc isnt playing any sound, iv gone into the control panel and its showing me there isnt a sound driver applied to my computer when iv tried to apply one it wont let me, does this mean my sound card...

-Maybe one of the cause that you can't install the sound driver is because there is a sound driver currently installed on the system that is corrupted .
-Try to uninstall first under device manager and reboot system then reinstall the sound driver.
-After this steps you still can't install the driver, check if the current sound driver that you are trying to install is compatible driver for your system.
-Check manufacturer website for system specification.

Headphone outlet

They don't have anything to do with the sound hardware but you can try reinstalling the sound driver(i recommend drivermax..just google it it's free) or mysteriously your sound card burned out(which is bad).
