Re: Audio

Try to plug in headphones to see if you get any sound in them. Maybe there's something wrong with the speakers?

Re: Audio

Check that it isnt muted, right click on the speaker icon in your taskbar and click volume control or volume properties and make sur the mute box isnt ticked. If not muted click start>run then type dxdiag and press enter. In the next window click the sound tab and run the test to see if it gives any clues

What is audio driver?

Is a program that makes your computer talk to the audio device in it. Without one your aduio device will not work and you will not get any sound.
Most operating systems come with the audio driverm but occassionally you may have to download and install one yourself. If you add a new audio card to your computer, most likely it will come with a CD that contains the audio driver.
Audio drivers as all drivers must match the Operating system you are using (Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit), OS X, etc...)

Hope this helps.

For about one week, when I try to listen to audio, no sound comes out of the laptop speakers so I tried external speakers but that did not work. I restored my system to a point well before the sound quit...

The sound driver is a very delicat thing. Go to Device Manager and see if the sound card is installed.
But right click on My computer- Manage- Services and Applications- Services and look for the Windows Audio service. Check how it is and set the startup type as automatic.
If this doesn't help try to uninstall the drivers, restart your computer and reinstall them.
Go to Acer website ( ) and download the driver.
If this doesn't fix your problem try reinstalling the operating system and install the drivers in the appropriate order: first the chipset, etc.
It is the safest way to resolve the problem if you reinstall your operating system.

My laptop wont play sound

I would recommend trying to see if these drivers will correct the issue..I can't see you having a laptop, and all of a sudden, there is no sound card installed? So, I think the drivers will solve the issue. You will need to enter serial number of on the below link..

Sound goes on & off on lenovo Y410 laptop

Next time it goes off, have a look to see if you have a service/process called Windows Audio running. Click Start & type "services.msc" in the search box (presuming you are using vista), then just press enter.
Look for "Windows Audio" & "Windows Audio Endpoint Builder".
Make sure they are running/started & set to automatic.

The problem could be a driver that did not install properly, a codec that did not install properly or a Windows update that did not install properly.
