This sounds like Malware. You should attempt to scan with an Online Scan provider.

I can't turn up the volume n my laptop


Which operating system ?

Acer laptops are typically sold with pre-installed Windows operating systems that offer sound-adjustment features for increasing the volume on the laptop's built-in stereo speakers. These same functions can also be used in tandem with external speakers or headphones to increase the volume, as well as mute all sound on the laptop. If the computer should output an unusually low volume, fixing the problem may be no more involved than sliding a control switch with the computer mouse.

Click once on the speaker icon in the taskbar on the lower-right corner to open a rectangular window with a slide control. Click and hold the left mouse button on the slide control to drag it upward, increasing the volume to the laptop's maximum setting. Click the "Mixer" button below the slider control to open another window with volume controls for "Speakers" and "Applications," adjusting each slide control upward to increase the volume. Be sure the speaker icon below each control is not accidentally muted. Click once on each speaker icon to remove the red circle with a slash through it, which will restore audio. Click the Microsoft flag or "Start" button in the lower-left corner if the shortcut speaker icon is missing from the taskbar. Click "Control Panel" to select "Adjust Sounds" from the Hardware and Sounds category. Hope this helps

You can try running a system restore and restore the system to a point when the sound was working. Probably a software conflict has caused the problem. You can also run a hardware diagnostic that is usually included with the notebook.

Problem of sounds on my computer


Hello

Sometimes the computer loses sound because the drivers to the sound card become uninstalled and you need to restore them. Inspect for missing drivers by opening the Control Panel. This is found by clicking the start button and locating the control panel option in the right hand column.

The list of contents inside the control panel on a computer are in alphabetical order. Click on "System." When inside of "System" click the "Hardware" tab and then click the "Device Manager" button.

Next to the sound icon make sure there are no yellow exclamation points with triangles inside. If there are, it means the sound card needs to be restored, as drivers have become corrupted. Take the CD out that came with the sound card. Or, download drivers from the Internet onto your computer to restore your sound card. If there are no yellow exclamation points, go to the next step.

Ensure your computer speaker cords have not become loose or unplugged. Also make sure the cable is securely attached into the proper outlet. They are color coded, but that does not necessarily mean that it is correct. Exchange a few different cords if you are unsure. You will not hurt anything. If this restored your sound, you are finished here.

Inspect the mute button either on the keyboard or Windows Taskbar (in lower right corner) has been accidentally selected. Double-click Windows Volume Control (looks like a black ball) in the lower right corner to maximize across computer screen. If you discover a choice has been muted, uncheck the box and shrink it back down to the Taskbar.

Or, if there is no sound icon in the Taskbar, chances are the sound card needs to be restored. Use your CD or download the drivers from the manufacturer's website onto your computer. If this step solves the sound problem, you are finished

Try switching different sets of speakers or earbuds to see if any of them work. Or, see if the computer speakers are off or the volume control is turned down. If this is the case, then your computer sound is fixed and you will hear sound from one of these. Discard your defective speakers and enjoy the sound!

dear friend.
the red X appears on the sonud icon in vista when the driver you have installed is incompatible withh the hardware.

try these steps
*check your speakers
if it fails
then


*go to device manager
*from the sound and video uninstall sound devices
*restart your pc
*the drivers should be detected by now

*if the above steps fail
*after uninstalling the sound devices
*click on search for hardware changes
*then proceeed with automatic install(make sure you are connected to internet)
note: the automatic driver installaion in vista is a bit slow so be patient.
