Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
There could be one of three problems here.
1) You need new sound drivers. You can get them from your laptop's distributor's website.
2) Your speaker or head phones that you are using are either blown or do not support the amount of watts the sound chip produces.
3) The sound chip on your laptop is bad and you are going to either have to take it to a computer repair shop or send it out to a repair service to replace it.
