Question about Acer Aspire 5100-5480 Notebook
Hi there, My laptop aspire 5570 has normal sound coming out from laptop built-in speakers, but no sound comes out and no sound can be heard when earphones or external speakers are connected/plugged in to the laptop through the earphone hole at the front of the laptop. Can someone please help me? Thanks.
I had the same problem with my Acer 5570 and I just fixed it. What I did is to go to Control Panel > Sounds And Audio Devices >Hardware >On Devices click on Reatek High Definition Audio >Click Properties > On Devise Usage choose the option Do not use this devise (disable) > click OK >then plug in your headphones, click on Realtek High Definition Audio properties again and click on Enable Devise **with the headphones plugged in**. It worked for me.

The simplest but weirdest solution for the same problem i had with my Aspire 5570 is:
1. Plug in the audio jack to the laptop
2. Start menu > Turn off computer > STAND BY
3. Then return back from that STAND BY mode
and walla! i can hear sounds from my headphone again! yeay!! pretty weird though.. hahaha :D

I had that problem too, but this happens on the old driver, if u download the new driver it will solve your problem the front jack will function, but there's another problem which it will make a very high pitch sound if you maximize the volume. This is what i'm trying to figure out. Also the volume for the new driver is increasingly low. Even the mic on the old driver is not recognize installing the new driver will recognize it but the volume is low also..i think acer should fix this one!

I have a similar problem with my Aspire 5570. However the problem appears only when my notebook is on for a long time ( 5-6 hours ). Rebooting does not help. I need to keep the notebook off for a long time ( normally overnight ) and then the headphones work again but stop after I use notebook for sometime. It is certainly not jack or headphone problem nor it looks like contact problem. But I have not been able to resolve this problem. As a work around I have purchased a USB audio adapter ( USD$ 8 )which takes in microphone and headphone jacks. Sound quality is not as good as the built-in Realtek of my Aspire but it works. I use Skype extensively and therefore need to use headphones. I have found out that by using microphone port of Aspire and headphone port of USB adapter I could totally eliminate echo problems the person at the other end of my Skype connetion experienced.

Hi, An indication that earphones or external speaker is correctly plug in is when the internal speakers cut-off. I am assuming that you tried & correctly inserted a known good earphone/external speaker to the leftmost of the 3 front connectors. If there is no sound and that: 1. the earphones and/or external speakers are known to be operational/good; and 2, when plugged in to the leftmost/first hole of the front panel the internal speaker cuts off, then it is possible that you have a defective stereo jack inside your laptop or probably a cold solder connection. Since the Aspire 5570 is relatively new, perhaps you can claim for warranty repair or even replacement whichever will suite you best. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information.
