Acer Aspire One Sound Issue

I have an Acer Aspire One laptop that I just purchased in Jan. and I have been having an issue with the sound almost from day one. I do not have anything installed on here at all other than aim and all I have saved in like a handful of photographs. Thats it.

When I play sound (youtube, webcamming with friends, system sounds, etc) it sounds like my speakers are vibrating...

I googled this and noticed lot of others have had this same problem too and that it eventuall MIGHT lead to a crash with your hard drive. Anyone know of anything I can do about this? Is there a fix for this yet?

A distorted sound is coming from my speakers even if i connect speakers


It is a possibility that you are getting feedback from a device that is near by. Possibly a cell phone or other device. I would recommend moving the computer to a different location and removing all electronic devices from beside the computer, then reconnecting speakers.

It is also possible that you have a bad sound card. If that is the case, you will need to purchase another sound card and replace the old one. I have included instructions on how to replace your sound card below:

Here is a site where you can purchase the sound card you may be in need of:
http://www.meritline.com/laptop-sound-card-usb-port---p-39078.aspx?source=nextaghdac

There are other sites such as Ebay where you can also purchase the sound card. The type of sound card you need is a PCMCIA Sound Card for an Acer Laptop.

Here are instructions on how to install a new sound card:
    Installing a PCMCIA Sound Card in Your Acer Laptop
  1. Step 1 Locate the PCMCIA card slot on your computer. On an Acer laptop, the slot may be either on the left or the right side of the laptop.
  2. Step 2 Remove the PCMCIA card cover by pressing the "Eject" button and pulling the cover out.
  3. Step 3 Insert your PCMCIA sound card with the connectors facing in and the upper label facing up. Some PCMCIA cards will have an arrow to make it easier to orient the card correctly.
  4. Step 4 Press the PCMCIA card gently into place.
  5. Step 5 Windows will recognize the PCMCIA card and search for the needed software.
  6. Step 6 If your sound card came with an installation CD, insert it in the CD slot and follow the instructions to install applications and utilities for use with your new sound card.
    Installing a USB Sound Card in Your Acer Laptop
  7. Step 1 Turn the computer on.
  8. Step 2 Plug the USB sound card into the appropriate USB plug on your laptop.
  9. Step 3 Wait for the computer to recognize the new USB device.
  10. Step 4 Insert the sound card manufacturer's CD if prompted to do so.
If a sound card is not the issue, then you possibly have circuitry issues on your laptop motherboard. For this issue, you may need to consult a certified technician at your local computer repair shop.

(If you are not a professional or are used to opening your laptop, I would recommend taking it to a local computer repair shop for a certified technician to look at this issue. Do bare in mind if you have a warranty, opening your laptop and not being a certified professional would void any warranty agreement you have with your manufacturer)

I have acer aspire 3000 notebook. i have switching off problems with that before. one of ur expert told me to open back cover and take memory sticks out and put them back. i did that but now i donot hear...


Right click "My Computer," "Properties," select the Hardware tab, Device Manager. Go to Sound, Video, and Game Controller. Find the integrated sound device, right click. Select properties. Confirm that "device is working properly." If it is, you have the correct drivers and your issue is a hardware or codec issue. If it is not working properly, go to Acer's website and download the correct sound drivers for your laptop. This should solve your problem.

Acer Aspire 3000 volume problems


checked sound driver in device manager.
most likely is software issue.
if your sound driver is ok in device manager and the sound isnot working, try to re-install the driver,
if it still not working, reload/re-install the operating system.
if after you re-install operating system, still not working, it might be your motherboard
