Re: Acer laptop - no sound

Not that I know of ? Use the volume control manager in the start menu under accessories to make sure that all of the audio channels are turned on, and that it is setup for you configuration such as 2 speakers, 3 speakers and a sub woofer, ETC..., and not muted. If all else fails, go to the device manager buy right clicking my computer and selecting properties, and then go to the hardware tab. look for sound video and game controllers, if any of them have a yellow (!) by them they most likely need drivers. else, try uninstalling all of the audio ones, and restarting your machine. When it comes back up, follow the steps in the add new hardware wizard.

Problem in external speaker when connected to acer 5738Z LAPTOP

The audio jack on the laptop is for headphones and most likely cannot it cannot deliver sufficient power to drive unpowered speakers.
Check the audio jack with headphones, if the volume setting is high and you still can't get sounds from the headphone and the mute switch is not selected then the audio amp in the laptop is faulty.

I have just bought an acer and I have no sound coming from my laptop but have checked the control pannel and all devices are on I have checked that I have a sound card and I do.

check to see if the sound is turned down (the speaker icon, bottom right), or muted, if it says no sound device installed then you have to reinstall the drivers
hope this helps
