Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

Problem with sound

Hi, I have got several solutions which proved as perfect to fix the notebook problem. I have got another problem. If I connect the jack from the sound system, my PC is detecting it, but there is no sound in the sound box. There is no problem with sound system and also not with the laptop. Otherwise, the notebook would not detect the sound system when it is turned off for half an hour or more. That is really funny. It doesnt work whenever I want. And it doesnt work if the PC is warm or a little hot. I had also problem with headphone. If I connect the headphone with laptop, I could hear the sound from the notebook and also from the headphone. Is it a problem with the notebook or it is just because the notebook doesnt like me? ;-))
How to solve such kind of problem?

    I meant, if I keep my laptop off, and make it kooler, the sound system is working sometimes. It is not a new problem. I am suffering from last one year. But I recently received some fantastic advices to fix problem in fixya from experts. So, I wanted to share!

    Opps! Sorry to confuse you. Actually I meant, if I connect the headphone, I can hear the sound from speaker of the laptop too. That is my problem.(I can always hear the laptop speaker)

    The second problem is, for example, I connect the jack of the sound system right now and play a music. I hear only the laptop speaker, no volume into the soundboxes. But it is normally detecting the sound system and telling that it is connected. If I turned off my laptop few hours, then it is working. How? I dont know. Is there any way to solve it so that I can listen music with the external sound system whenever I want?

No backlight on laptop LCD screen

The only solution I can think of is that your 40pin cable from the motherboard to the screen is damaged. They do fail just through use (opening and closing the laptop lid can put strain on the cable) Try replacing this cable.

Boss oethe left side of my headphone is stop working


The most common cause for this, is a loose wire connection to that speaker (as opposed to the speaker being faulty).

Has anyone pulled the cord too tight or tripped on the cord? If yes, then the internal wire connecting that speaker has an internal break somewhere.

Try the following:

1) Plug headphones into music device and turn on.
2) Gently press the wire 'in' at the left earpiece (or wiggle at the earpiece end). If sound returns intermittently, then you have n internal wire break in that end of the cord.
3) Gently press the wire 'in' at the plug where it connects to your player (or wiggle the cord at the plug end). If sound returns, then there is an internal wire break at this end of the cord.

In the case of broken internal wires, it is possible to repair.

Although very fragile, it is possible to resolder these tiny wires (you'll have to burn off the enamel coating around these wires first) back onto their respective connections, or onto a new plug.

Good luck....

I need to connect my hp laptop to my home theatre but the output is only from the two speakers neither 3 r,do u have any solution to fix it


There is several ways you can do this.

One way without out buying any extra hardware is to hook the stereo out to your receiver and if your receiver has an upmix feature use this option.

If you would like true 5.1/7.1 from your notebook you will need to upgrade the sound card. There are several ways to do this. To give you the best options let me know the make and model of your notebook and reciever so I can recommend the right hardware for you.

No voices come out, sound is good, with headphones and speakers

This sounds like a problem with your connection for your headphones. Your headphone jack on your notebook is stereo, which means that you need stereo headphones to make it work. If you look at the tip of your plug on your headphone cord, it will have 1 black ring, or 2 black rings. 1 black ring is mono, 2 black rings is stereo.

If you are using stereo headphones, and you're still having this problem, your headphone plug is not going all the way into the jack on your notebook. Press the plug all the way into the jack and the problem should be fixed.

If you physically cannot push the plug all the way into the jack, there may be a problem with the jack on your notebook that will need to be looked at.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Needing solution...


First, check the linecord /power connections to the display.
If they prove out OK, then check the video connections. You may find them loose. If that's OK too, then:

You can either connect a different monitor, or add the appropriate
connector/adapter and use a TV.

Acer Aspire 3680 - No headphone sound

I have had the same problem with my acer aspire 3680. I have been trying different things, and have found one thing that works for me. When I shut the computer down I unplug my speakers first. When I start the computer I wait until the computer starts completely then I plug my speakers in. This has been working for about a week for me with no headphone jack problems at all. Hope this helps someone.
