Acer 3000 speaker problems

The speakers on my laptop stopped working a while back [as in about a year or more], and we never got them fixed. just the other day, one of them started to get a little bit of sound coming out, but it doesn't get much, and it only lasts a few seconds. any way i could fix the speakers without replacing them? and if not, where could i find a place who could replace them?

Re: acer 3000 speaker problems

It sounds like the speakers have burned out, so the only place I can think of is Comp U.S.A., or Circuit City they have some pretty good techs there, and if they cant do it, you might need a new laptop, but don't worry, the people at both of these places can transfer everything from your old laptop to the new one with no problems

Acer Aspire 1406 no sound issue

So sometimes laptops play up when the headphone socket gets a bit worn. If you wiggle a headphone jack in the socket (put it in at different angles, and rub around) sometimes the sound will come back.

There are two prongs that "detect" the headphones, and cut the speakers... and if they don't "un-contact" when the headphones are removed, the speakers stay off.

You'd need someone to solder a new headphone socket on the mainboard to properly fix it, but if you wiggle and get the speakers back, they should stay back until you use the headphone socket again.

HP laptop speakers not working

whenever you put in the head phones the speaker will stop working and when you take the headphones out they will start working again this is their normal behaviour.

My guess would be that whichever one you have, you've installed the "other" one.

let me know if this helps, and please remember to rate my answer :)

Speaker problem

Check if there are any hardware conflicts. Go control panel - system- hardware - device manager. If there are any yellow exclamation marks against the listing of your laptops hardware then you need to install the correct driver. If all the drivers are installed make sure the sound is enabled. Also make sure the sound is not muted and that none of the input levels on the sound mixer are very low. Note the sound will not be heard in the speakers if there is a plug in the headphone socket - make sure nothing is broken off in the socket stopping it from working.

Acer 5610 sound problems

Hi, It is possible that: 1. You may have recently installed an add-on/external device such as a multimedia keyboard which changed the audio output from internal to external; 2. The laptop's internal speaker might have gone dead (highly unlikely but still a possibility) - try plugging in external speakers or a headset and check; 3. Most if not all laptops uses a female stereo babyphone jack to connect to external speakers. This jack has a built-in switch that cuts off internal speaker if an external is plug in. If you are using eternal or headset from time to time, it is possible that the switch might have locked to external and does not switch back to the internal; 4. You may have a hardware issue specifically the sound card/chipset. This of course would require an inshop repair which may be better off with an authorized service center. At worst is have the entire laptop replace if it is confirmed to be a hardware issue. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Internal Speakers Are Not Found

When you say you have to re-install them, are you actually installing the sound drivers from the acer restore programme or cd, or are you just letting windows find them(the sound driver) each time you go through the process of deleting them. Try installing drivers from the acer website to see if there is any newer driver versions If it continues, you may have to restore the original laptop settings back to factory default, assuming it hasn't done this since the day of setup, but make sure you back up all settings and documents to cd or dvd first.
