Front 4 usb ports and microphone and headphone jacks don't work but the rear usb and speaker jacks do work. I've had the computer new since 2009 and they have never worked.

it sounds to me like the wires from the front panel connectors are not connected to the motherboard inside the computer case, open the case up find the front connectors wires inside and find out if there are any connectors on the motherboard to plug them into.
the reason the rear ones work is because they are soldered directly to the motherboard.
good luck.

I have an Acer Aspire 380 w/9 in 1 card reader, where do I find the schematic?

you'd do better taking it to a pc tech. hooking up anything wrong would spell disaster. having said that, there are only 5 kinds of plugs on the board: USB, Audio, Power, intrusion switch, and fans. Power ones are big and come from a big silver box with thick wires. USB ones are smaller but are bunched into a thick cable that houses several smaller wires and leads to a 9 post square jack. The audio wire looks *almost* like the USB wire, but it is usually yellow, where the USB one is green blue and/or black. The fan wires go to the case fan, cpu fan, and any other fans installed. finally there are some systems that have chassis intrusion switches that trigger an alert to let you know the case was opened (in case you suspect someone tampered with your pc's innards). The 9 in one card reader is not much more than a USB device. It would attach to any one of the 9 pin USB points on the system board. It usually looks like this [::::.]

My PC has two USB controllers. How can I access the second one?

click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X

you will need to update/reinstall drivers

right click to reinstall drivers
if all are intact

you might purchase a usb 2 or 3card they almost install themselves and a very cheap on Ebay or

purchase a usb 4 or 5 port hub if you already have one
think about fixing the sound insteab of us

click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to sound video and game controllers you might see a yellow question exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to
reinstall drivers

if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it

click start control panel sounds and audio volume advanced speakers make sure you have selected the

(appropriate speakers) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there

click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it

if his does not fix the problem

click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker

volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar for any

further volume control settings you will need to right click on the speaker volume icon system select adjust volume

click start control panel sounds and audio volume advanced speakers select the appropriate speakers

from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand system

speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check

the speaker plug/outlets is usually at the back of the computer or if its a laptop on the side

you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make

sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity

clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is

no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit

dust causes static to build up in a computer

hope this helps

I have sound if I plug in headphones (USB port) but nothing from speakers.

usb port?!?

is this not getting plugged into the audio out? 3.5mm jack?

if your plugging headphones into USB port -not a 3.5mm audio jack they have there own sound card (technically)

and your sound card in the computer might not even be working

Connecting speakers to Computer

In most cases the woofer plugs into the speaker which contains the power adapter plug, the green plug goes into the PC's audio out (usually a green plug on the back of the unit). When the USB is plugged into the machine the OS should plug and play the new hardware and may ask you to insert a driver disc if applicable.

After the OS has identified the new hardware and installed it you should be able to test additional audio out plugs if you are unable to hear sound from your first choice (again, ideally the green plug). There should also be a line out plug which may work for your purposes also.

If you are still having issues please post the model of your speakers so that we may look them up...

Computer speakers no sound

I'm assuming Windows XP on a PC Desktop but the concepts are the same no matter what operating system.

1. Are your speakers plugged in to a power source?
2. Are they turned on?
3. Is the volume turned up on the speakers?
4. Are your speakers plugged into the (usually green) audio port on your computer? 5. Go into control panel, sounds and audio devices and check to make sure that sound is not on "mute".
5. On the Audio tab, check to make sure it shows a default sound device for each item. If not, either your sound card is malfunctioning or you need to download and install a current driver from the Acer website.

No soundfrom speakers-{usb]

1.)Try connecting your speakers to another machine ? Then you can distinguish if the speaks or the cable is faulty or your sound software on your machine.

2.)install the l8est drivers for your sound card or audio device

3.)try the front usb, sides or other usb ports

4.) If your speakers also have "Jack" connectors, either try plugging into another audio port at the back of your machine or try the front audio ports

5.) Are the speakers powered on ? Is the volume on the speakers muted OR is the sound in your system on your machine muted or turned off or turned quiet ???
