Re: hello my acer e380 all of a sudden quit playing audio
There probably is a problem with your sound card. Go to Device Manager (start>programs>rightclick My Computer>hardware) and see if there is a yellow, red or black mark next to sound card. Click the "+" sign and click on update drivers...if that does not fix the problem then the sound card needs to be replaced..good luck. Let me know if you have any problems..

Your problem isnt in your PC, it's because you chose the onboard sound to listen to music etc, which is normal. Unfortunately, you need to choose the HDMI Audio output if you want sound on your TV FROM the HDMI cable. Right click the sound icon located to the lower right side of your screen and choose (adjust audio properties). Now go to the audio tab and click the output device window and choose your HDMI audio output, whatever it may be called. Just pick the one that wasn't selected when you opened it and click ok or apply. Now all audio output is controlled by your Video card lol. Crazy aint it?
Try this, double click on the realtek HD audio icon on the system tray (orange speaker), click the effects tab, check if there's an active sound effect, change the effect to none, this should return the audio back to normal. Otherwise, either there's a problem with the speaker or on-board sound card.
As long as the motherboard is an ATX or mATX form-factor, it should fit without a problem. Just remember that it has a 300W power supply, so you need to watch the power consumption of all of the devices you have in there. You don't want to exceed the pwoer supply limits. (Actually, you should try to keep it below 250W for all devices connected to a 300W power supply to play it safe).
Mine did that too, I have sent it to Acer for Warranty Acerization, it came back in a week booting fine. Worked for 3 months and then quit again. These boards are used y other cheapos like Gateway and Packard Bell. Solution - trow away the motherboard, keep the CPU and RAM.
