Acer aspire 5050 external speakers problem

Hi.

i really really dislike listening to music on laptop speakers and so i tried plugging in some external ones. there's sound coming from them but it's extremely low and extremely echo-y. at first i thought the speakers were fried so i got some other one and... same thing. what could be the problem? i checked the audio levels and everything but it all looks pretty normal. i don't know what else could it be.

appreciate any help!

    Where are you plugging the speakers in? Do headphones sound OK or the same?

I know it's an old problem. But it's the audio driver settings. There's an icon in the system tray. Open it and turn off the effects. Or uninstall it altogether. Makes it much louder.

Do the speakers sound OK if they are plugged into an MP3 player or CD player?

No sound


Your computer's external speakers are either disconnected or damaged. Let a computer technician repair them or use headphones/external speakers.

Take care!

Acer Aspire 5050 screen is blank


Hi, if it works with an external monitor it's more likely an LCD problem. When you push the power button, noting comes up on the main LCD screen? not even the Acer logo etc.?
Did you set your video card to use an external monitor and disabled the primary LCD? If so, you need to go to display settings, advanced and go to ATI Display and make sure that the notebook monitor is on.

Acer aspire 5050 can't turn it on


If you dont see any green lights and you dont hear any boot up sounds ( hd, fans, etc) try to take out battery and just plug in the AC adapter to a known good power outlet. Make sure your power plug is good too. If you hear boot-up sounds, see green lights but no display then toggle on the "fn" key and or try on an external monitor.
