Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

2 Answers

Can't play any music on Aspire 3680

Although my pc (Acer Aspire 3680, could play music fine, since about 2 weeks ago, it suddenly started giving problems when I try to play my ipod's library songs.

I initially thought there was a virus on the pc, but investigations show it is clean. I tried to play a cd, and the same problem occurs, thus it can not be a corrupted music file.

I deleted both the windows media player as well as the Quick Time Player, and downloaded the latest versions of both and still the problem remain.

Then I bought more RAM memory, I now have 2 GB instead of the 512MB the pc comes out with. The problem is still there.

I can open my pictures and other files with no problem, only the music seems to be a problem for the pc.

To describe what happens if I turn on the music... it sounds like a record being played way to slow, kind of dragging...

As I say, it was fine previously, but over the last 2 weeks the problem grew from bad to worse...

If you have any recommendations, it will be highly apprciated!

Kind regards
Jaco

If you can't change the setting in the bios setup that means you have a bios supervisor password set. If you don't know the supervisor password you can reset the supervisor with Acer Bios Master Password from http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_Acer_Bios.php for only $20

Try uninstalling your burner and restart your computer. The computer should find it again on it's own and install it automatically once restarted.

...or should i say, i had the same problem. yeah mine is a 6530g which is fairly similar, i had that problem as well until i dumped vista and put xp on it, although i did have some driver issues while doing that but nothing i couldnt figure out or get from the acer website.... and yes acer has been splitting the hard drives into two partitions lately, i have no idea why.... killing vista worked for me so it definitely isnt your hardware, i hope someone gives you some better help soon though.
