How to replace a broken soundcard on a Acer Extensa Laptop

I had an audio cable plugged into it and someone tripped over it now I only get mono sound from one speaker. I was wondering if the sound card can be replaced? I have built and repaired many desktops so I'm sure I could do the repair just need to know how to go about it and where to get the parts. The model is Acer Extensa 4630Z, It's kind of a weird model I bought it at best buy on sale but have not been able to find much info on it.

    Thanks for the response rwc120! Yeah I've checked the cable but it's the same with anything I plug into it including my home theater receiver with y adapter cable.

    Are you sure that the sound card is bad and possibly it's not the cable after being tripped over. I would suggest just checking with a cable that you know is good. Sorry I haven't replaced a sound card on a laptop yet so unable to help if it is bad.Good luck

Most sound cards are intergrated into the motherboard, you can't just replace it, you can look to see if the weld is broken and try to repair it or just go get a plug n' play sound card

Headset Microphone doesn't work


Plugged in? Is it a stereo plug? does your computer allow speaker and mic on the same wire? Does the outlet say Mic or Headset of Both? Had it worked in the past.

Some computers have a place for a mic - some for headset - some might have both. On a desktop, I would expect to find separate connections. Laptop, Id have to look.

A 'stereo' plug will have a tip, ring and barrel connection.

A 'mono' plug will have a tip and barrel connection only.

A stereo plug would allow a mic and head phone connection ujsing a 'common' for the return.

A mono plug would allow either a mic or a headset, not both.

If you could peer into the jack inside your computer, you could tell if it privides for three wire (stereo) or two wire (mono) operation.

I hope this helps ... If I missed your question, please reask.

Acer aspire 5910G S/PDIF cable


Hi,

These are Creative Z5500 speakers and you have an audio control panel that allows digital in or analog in, correct?

Digital out is usually marked by a black color ring not green and would have a stamp on it indicating digital or spdif. Digital out and coaxial out are the same thing and are a simple mono male to male mini 1/8 twisted copper cable.

You can use the digital in at the desktop control unit with a mono mini 1/8 male and male cable available at any Radio Shack and also get a mono RCA (any color) male to male adapter. Just explain your needs to the clerk there and they'll set you up.

An optical connection is completely different and makes no difference. The jack is square and usually has a plug in it to keep dust out with a square knob for grabbing it to withdraw the dust plug and put it back in place again. It's best not to bother with these things as they haven't found a place in the market.

Just so you know, you can use the analog out on your laptop to the analog in on the control unit and then select Dolby digital for processing and you won't know the difference. This whole digital thing is blown way out of proportion unless you're working with HD out to HD in on a flat panel TV unit from a Satellite Receiver or Cable Box.

Any other questions just ask away and please don't forget to rate our solutions on FixYa. Thanks.
