Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

For christmas i had a new sound stereo which enables me to plug in a aux which is the same connector as headphones but doubled ended so i could link my laptop with the sound system.Because my built in speakers and microphone were distorting the sound we set about turning the built in speakers off by going into control pannel, sounds and disabling what i needed however this stopped all sound. Then thinking i would be able to do the same to turn them back on i realised that the devices had disappeared off the list.I cannot seem to find a way to turn them back on even after research on the internet. If this helps my laptop is a E-SYSTEM and is on VISTA. Do you know the solution to my problem as really a laptop without sound is useless to me or do i have to take it in to comet or somewhere ?

Can i hook up my PC to my sterio system through the headphone jack on the stereo to the PC HEadphone jack? been trying to get it to work on Auxilary but no sound :( please help


If you are still working on the question you asked about. This is what I would do. One of two things:

First: purchase an adapter that goes from your laptop 3.5 mm headphone jack to the microphone input if there is one.

Second: Would be to purchase what is called a "Cassette Tape Adapter". This will take your 3.5 mm headphone jack and play it through your cassette tape area of your stereo.

I hope one of these is a solution that will help you. -- wicc --

Acer netbook sound not working when connecting tv


LOL, nope, that's the way it works. The sound will come from the netbook. If you want the sound to come from the TV you will need to run a audio cable out of the Netbook's Headphone Jack to the RCA input Jacks on the TV.

Bascially you will need a cable with a 3.5mm Stereo Male end for the Netbook headphone Jack and the other end will have 2 RCA Male for the TV's Audio Jack.

You can buy them at:
http://www.cablewholesale.com

just look for audio cables
3.5mm Stereo Male to 2 RCA Male

They are real cheap 6 ft. less than $2.00, 12 ft. less than $3.50
You can get 25ft or 50ft also

I have a samsung NC10. I have connected to my TV via the PC cable. I can see the screen but here no sounds. I have connected the red/yellow/white audio cable to the tv. It has a jack plug on the other end....


The cable you are using is a rca audio/video cable. The colors translate to:
  • red=audio,right
  • white=audio,left
  • yellow=composite video
Your laptop headphone input uses a ⅛′ (3.5 mm) mono and stereo (TRS).

You need a Stereo 3.5mm mini phone plug male to 2 RCA female connectors.

I have a Toshiba laptop L305D-S5895 and a Toshiba Hi Def LCD 37AV502U tv. I got an audio cable, that I have in the headphone spot & the original cable needed to connect the pc to the tv. I am getting all...


Which cables have you attached to your TV (the video and audio)?
Does the TV has left & right audio inputs (RCA connectors)?

When you attach a headphone to the laptop, the speakers on the laptop switch off and the sounds divert to the headphones. Try and connect a cable (stereo) from the headphone outlet on the laptop to the audio stereo inputs on the TV.

No voices come out, sound is good, with headphones and speakers


This sounds like a problem with your connection for your headphones. Your headphone jack on your notebook is stereo, which means that you need stereo headphones to make it work. If you look at the tip of your plug on your headphone cord, it will have 1 black ring, or 2 black rings. 1 black ring is mono, 2 black rings is stereo.

If you are using stereo headphones, and you're still having this problem, your headphone plug is not going all the way into the jack on your notebook. Press the plug all the way into the jack and the problem should be fixed.

If you physically cannot push the plug all the way into the jack, there may be a problem with the jack on your notebook that will need to be looked at.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Built in speakers don't work.i have sound only when i plugg the headphones


Looks like there is some problem with the stereo headphone connector. As its a hardware issue, I would recommend sending it to the service center.

You may also use external speakers temporarily.

Before going to any shops, here is a suggestion that can't hurt anything.
Go to the Control Panel and click on Sounds and Audio Devices. On the Volume tab at the bottom, you will see "Speaker Settings". Click on the Advanced button. Change that setting to "Stereo headphones". You should hear the sound only through the headphones then.
