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

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.
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.
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.
