Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

Acer aspire laptop seems to be missing audio drivers

While trying to find an video media application to play .mkv video file, I installed and uninstalled several players. some how in my trial I have mannaged to remove the audio devices.... when I go to the control panel and look at Sounds and Audio devices, the only device I have is 'Bluetooth AV/HS Audio' although this laptop is bluetooth enabled, I do not have a bluetooth headset and would be more than happy with just the laptop spealers and the normal headset port for connecting additional speakers.
PLease help me... I have no idea what caused this situation and I do not know how to fix it. I cannot disable the bluetooth AV/HS device as I have no other audio device drivers on my laptop...

    My 3680,Aspire notebook was mal-functioning. I then formatted it and then restore it using the recovery disk which I burnt for recovery purposes.After succesfully restoring it, and boot it up,it gives a message"Operating System cannot be found. After tyring for several occassions,I then decided to install Windows XP SP3 hence the PC was no longer functioning. After the Windows installation it is not detecting the sound device.I need to download the sound device so as the Empoering Technology icon as it was useful. I think life can be more easy if Acer can provide the installation disks with a purchase of their products i.e. HD Realtek disk, Drivers disk and Empowering Technology disk instead of requiring the client to copy the Recovery disk of which was not useful to me. I only used it once, now it's giving me problems unlike if I had the above mentioned disks I could have solved these problems without any inconviniences.

Go to acer,
click on america, click on drivers & downloads, product line = notebook, product = aspire 3680... you will want to download the audio driver if using xp or the realtek hi def audio driver if using vista.

as far as the mkv support, VLC (video lan player) supports matroska pretty well, you can also download the CCCP playback pack of codecs to support mkv in pretty much any directshow player (media player, media player classic, winamp, etc)

My acer laptop was formated, since I got it back I cant play any dvd nor cd... I do have media player but message appear stating that the following files cant be played..


Yes, you have missed the codec files.

Download "Windows essentials Codec pack", below is the link

http://download.softpedia.ro/dl/7dd4bba62e0c22582981d1a9546796dc/4b45cc15/100071211/software/MULTIMEDIA/VIDEO/DIVX/WECPSetup.exe

Install this, you will be able to play almost all files in your windows media player.

I recommend you use VLC player, it can play any file formats both Audio or Video without any Codec and moreover it's completely open source. Below is the VLC player download link

.OGM , .MKV file


MKV and OGM are two container formats - Matroska and Ogg Media respectively. That is, they are computer files that contain various types of multimedia data, in particular video, audio and subtitle tracks. A container might contain one video track and multiple audio and subtitle tracks of a variety of languages. They can also contain chapter-information, and meta-data (tags). Quicktime MOV and AVI are other examples of container files.

  • If you want to watch these videos on your computer, then you don't need MKVtools or any other video converter. Just download either VLC Media Player or MplayerOSX . Both applications can play MKV and OGM files.

Thanks
