Re: I just rebooted my computer but i have no sound?
When you bought the computer and the sound on board, came with it, so did a disk that contained the sound software and driver for the motherboard. You need to reinstall both using that motherboard disk. If you did not receive the disk, then you need to contact them for it.
Your other ooption is to buy a PCI soundcard, like Soundblaster that wil come with everything you need.

Please check whether the audio driver is installed or not.
Go to Start -> Run -> type: devmgmt.msc -> OK
Right-click My Computer then select Properties
Select the Hardware tab
Click the Device Manager button.
Go to Sound, Video and Game Controllers.
Check whether the Audio is displays there. If YES, you need to Uninstall and reboot your PC. If NO, then you need to install an Audio Driver that supports your PC and reboot.
Did you install many more things after you downloaded the game and before the game had gotten slow?
Sometimes games take a tremendous amount of resources from the computer, and anything else that can be running in the background such as anti-virus software can really bog the system down. If you game crashes to the desktop, this can be a sign that other programs are running and taking up to much of your resources. If you game plays fine, and then slows down after a few hours, and only a reboot will speed it up, than this can be a lack of RAM. I would suggest that you start by turning down the frame rates, and details on the game and see if this helps. Generally, games have the options to do this from the main menu. If this doesn't work, I would suggest that you turn programs off that aren't needing to continually run on the computer.
Why don't you go to the acer web page anmd go to the download page and type the name of your computer and download audio driver and save on to your HD and install(normaly you should get Realtek SOund Manager)
It sounds like the the computer got tossed around during the move. You will need to disconnect all the internal cables and then reconnect them. If you need help with this part, open a chat session with me and I will walk you through it.
