Acer 5610 sound problems

Ive had my acer for about two months and all of a sudden the sound stopped working. Ive checked all the settings and nothing is muted or turned down low. The drivers are also installed correctly and working fine according to device manager. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: acer 5610 sound problems

Hi, It is possible that: 1. You may have recently installed an add-on/external device such as a multimedia keyboard which changed the audio output from internal to external; 2. The laptop's internal speaker might have gone dead (highly unlikely but still a possibility) - try plugging in external speakers or a headset and check; 3. Most if not all laptops uses a female stereo babyphone jack to connect to external speakers. This jack has a built-in switch that cuts off internal speaker if an external is plug in. If you are using eternal or headset from time to time, it is possible that the switch might have locked to external and does not switch back to the internal; 4. You may have a hardware issue specifically the sound card/chipset. This of course would require an inshop repair which may be better off with an authorized service center. At worst is have the entire laptop replace if it is confirmed to be a hardware issue. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Since u have already tried reinstalling the webcam drivers, try resetting BIOS.
Then check whether it is shown in Device Manager under Imaging devices.
If its not shown, its an issue with the webcam.
If its shown there, try doing a complete system recovery.

Acer aspire 5610-2762 ( or 5610z ) Has all the drivers says the audio is working but its not

Often sound devices are linked to the modem, with almost everyone using dsl these days they sometimes don't notice the modem hasn't installed correctly.
Go to Device Manager and update or uninstall your modem. If you uninstall the modem just do a restart and Windows will "detect new hardware" just let it reinstall the modem.
Hopefully after installing the modem Windows will suddenly find more new hardware and suddenly want to install a "media deivce" that is your soundcard, I have seen this many times back in the day of the dialup modem.

Hi How old is this laptop? If it is brand new, then you should be able to send it back to acer. Its the problem with drive or mainboard not with the drivers.

No sound after installing vista

Have you tried plugging external speakers or headphones?

I would check the usual...mute is off...volume is up...etc.

Good luck.
