Re: I am using acer travelmate 5520-5678 and the external...
The other speakers cord is cut, loose, or the speaker has failed somehow.
look for a replacement on www.acerparts.com or www.pchub.com shouldn't cost much.
first I would check the connection and test the speaker and of course if your on warranty, use the warranty instead of tampering it with your self.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Try to use external speaker. connect it where you usually connect your head and check if it work . If ever the external speaker will work it only means that the problem is your headset ( defective )If in case the external speaker will not work it means the problem is the terminal ( the port where the headset or external speaker connection )
Hi, you need to switch it to headset, from speakers on the computer, you can do this really easy if you click the speaker icon on the bottom right hand screen, right click and go to playback devices and change it to headset so you can hear it.....hope this helps.....
It appears that your Acer has 3 ports in the front center bottomportion of the laptop. One of them should be for plugging in an external microphone, one should be for external speakers, and one should be an input jack.http://complap.com/yahoo_site_admin/assets/images/acer-travelmate-2420-2.192120139_std.jpg

This could be caused for a number of reasons. First thing to determine is if the computer is bad or just the screen. Hook up a external monitor to the laptop and turn it on and use the FN key to turn on the external monitor port. If the computer is running fine with the external monitor then you have a bad LCD or LCD inverter. which is replacable but expensive.. you would want to look at getting a new laptop or using it with the external monitor.
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.
