Your laptop may have a 4.1 speaker system. In this system you have 2 sets of stereo speakers/headphones + subwoofer. You can switch the speakers to both sets, or either set by software or control panel applet (Sound and Audio devices)

I have the same machine, exchanged it and still no sound. Manager at Comet pointed out that it has no amplifier in this model. Buy cheap speakers with amplifier and with mini jack plug and ... fantastic sound!
When I phoned Acer (ugh!) they did not know this!

I am having problems adjusting volume

What type of laptop HP , ASUS , COMPAQ , ACER ?..........
Up the Volume on My HP Laptop
Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon.
Locate and open the icon that deals with sound.
Depending on your version of Windows, it will say either "Sounds and Audio Devices" or "Adjust System Volume."
Adjust the volume under the "Speakers" icon.
To do this, click on the slider bar and move it up on the slider.
If you need to decrease the volume, simply move the slider bar down.
Click on "OK" when finished and close the "Control Panel" window.
Click on the speaker icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen for a faster volume adjustment. Simply move the slider bar up to increase the volume and move it back down to decrease the volume.

Volume on an Acer Laptop
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.

Just moved & set up my computer with HP w2338h monitor with built-in speakers, it does not play sound. I've restored factory settings, checked volume & mute, turned off/on, double checked all...

Try the following:
  • Right click the speaker icon in your icon tray > click playback devices, see if you can see your monitor there as an option, and if so, right click it and click "Set as default device"
Hopefully that helps!

No sound after trying to install external speakers

ok once you get to the sound icon in your control panel click and go into and you should see one thats says speakers and one that says digital output if it doesn't have a green check over the speakers then highlight it and set it as defult, or if there is nothing under the playback tab, then you will have to download the sound drivers again for windows do an ms update, or look up your sound device and look for the drivers for it over the net or use the program drivermax, but do an update from microsoft is the best bet and then go get ccleaner program from run it and clean things up do a defrag as well and go from there ok if need more help call me at 952-451-0518 ask for Travis A. any time 24/7 the fixist good luck and have a nice day

Not getting deteected

Speakers do not get detected, they only produce sound when you play any. Reboot the PC or laptop and on shutting down and startup Windows plays its own sound. That should come through these speakers. Now go to the Sound option by clicking open the Volume icon in the system tray and check and make sure that nothing is muted by Windows. And listen to your favorite music as these are good quality speakers.

Sound won't work without the earphones being plugged in

Make sure the speaker volume is turned up and also go into Control Panel, Sounds and make sure nothing is muted and all volumes are turned up. Also make sure the speakers are plugged into the sound jack in the back of the pc. The speakers also need power but since the light is on, it sounds like they are plugged in.
