Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

My laptop it having more problems...

When I plug in some speakers to my laptop, everything works fine for about 4 hours, and then out of nowhere the speakers just stop working. When I unplug them, th internal speakers work just fine. It's starting to get real frustrating, I tried every other speaker I can find, including headphones, but they still won't play for about 5 more hours, then after that they stop again >.<

    Okay I just screwed something up... I was trying to fix the sound, and I went in there and accidentally disabled my laptop internal speakers. It says sound is coming into this other kinda speaker, but nothing comes out, so the only way I can listen to sound on my laptop now is US headsets...

    My external speakers plugged into my Aspire 3680 also will sometimes not work and sometimes work again after being turned off for a day. Did the stuff like un-installed and reinstalled the driver etc. and followed the suggestions at http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthre... and
    http://www.rm.com/Support/TechnicalA...e...

    Someone suggested an external sound card, which I'm contemplating.

    This sounds like a heat issue. After a few hours, some connection is expanding and severing the output. The break will be on the circuit board or on the leads going to the audio output.

    If it is heat related, not something you can fix without opening the case (and learning to solder).

Sounds like a simple example of overheating on the laptop. Do you have it up off the surface, so that the air can get into the bottom or back fan?

Speakers are not working


try these. remove ac adapter and battery. press and hold on the power button for 15 seconds. plug back ac adapter and battery. download the latest bios for your system from the manufacturer's website. if still same problem try a system restore from the time when everything was working fine. try an external speakers check if the audio jacks are working. if all fails replace mobo. if external speakers ok then replace laptop internal speakers.

Logitech Z-5300 subwoofer from computer to i-pod problem...


The best thing to do is to contact the manufacturers. From this i understood that your speaker system is new. You surely have the manufacturer's guarantee. So its better to contact them than to get it repaired or replaced for free. Sir please do not try to open the sub as it will void the guarantee policy.

Hope your subs come into play as soon as possible.......
All the best...

your going to need this place to download the remedy's for your system http://www.euras.com/repair_tips_1/CARVER/AV505/AV505_CARVER.htm

if it is not working then there is another serious problem , and it could be the amp IC or the volume IC but tests will need to be done to determine what is causing the failure , but it does sound like amp IC as a suspect since the rear were not even working , did the volume seem different when turning it up or down before the center quit or after the center quit?
