1. how did you reinstalled the driver? if you have just uninstalled the driver and reload the computer letting reinstall the current audio driver try to actually get the driver from here look in download section and download the realtek driver for windows 7 (if you have windows 7 installed) and attempt fix.

2. if 1 has been attempted, you may be dealing with a resource issue for which bios update may be in order , review on the link above the support bulletins, there are 2 bios updates (1.90 and 2.00) that apply to audio and other issues. (IMPORTANT NOTE: bios update is a very critical step and should be avoided unless there's an actual need for it, review the description showed on each service bulleting applicable to your system and proceed with caution and following bios update procedures. failed to review this info may result on your laptop becoming a very expensive paperweight)

good luck!

My MSI laptop, is on sleep mode, and refusing to wake up. please assist

hi there,
Please try to remove the battery unplug the computer off the wall and while its turned off press and hold the power button for 20 - 30 sec this way you can drain the flea power(static charge of the computer).
If that does not work try to go to the BIOS and load the default settings, if that still does not work reseat (remove and reinstall) the Memory Modules (RAM) of your laptop and then try to turn it on.
Usually the remove and reinstall of the RAM does the trick but if the initial steps would work for you then you wont have to got through the disassembling the cover etc.
Hope this helps!

Check the basics for like the Volume settings, mute and volume buttons on your keyboard, and the file that you are trying to play. Try a different file like music, video from different resources such as cd, MP3 players, and online. If still those don't work, try uninstalling and reinstalling your Sound driver. Click in Start button then search for device manager. Under Sound, check if there is a yellow or red mark beside the icon. If that is the case, try uninstalling the driver by right clicking it and choose uninstall. Then it would prompt you to restart the computer or if not, then restart it manually (which automatically reinstalls the driver after restart). If that wont still work, try to check if there would be sound when an external speaker is plugged in. If it works then you need to replace the internal speakers. If not, then it could be the sound card that is having the problem. Before replacing it, which means you need to replace the whole motherboard if it is onboard, and just the sound card if its just an expansion, I suggest you try Systyem restore to a date when your computer was working fine. If that one wont work, back up files first, then try reformatting the operating system. If still it doesn't work, you may want to replace sound card or the motherboard.

Was working on my laptop and it shut down now it wont start up green light comes on for about 5 sec and goes off again

I guess the problem is with your hard disk. The hard disk might have got corrupted because of some bad sectors or some virus. Try going for a XP reinstallation. That will almost fix your problem. If the problem still persists, Then am really sorry to say, you should go for a product replacement which is not advisable you may happen to lose the data in your old hard disk. The service center ppl will not care abt your data and they wont take backup for you as well. So try to go for XP reinstallation.

Sounds on internet wont work!

If the sound works with all other software but "the internet", and by that I presume you actually mean web surfing, did you try installing a different browser, or uninstalling and reinstalling the one you are using?

That has a good chance of fixing the problem IF the only time you are having an issue with sound is when surfing the net.

Usually issues like this are the result of a corrupt driver file {drivers are small pieces of code that tell your computer how to interact with things like modems,printers,etc} So, sometimes we can fix it by simply reinstalling the drivers for the modem. First step, find your particular model of computer on the acer website - start here-
so in your case, click, note book, aspire, scroll til you find 'aspire 5500' and click that
step two, a page full of driver files should have loaded at the bottom of the window, find the ones that say Wireless LAN, there should be 4 or so, if your not sure which one you need, download and try to install them all, its no big deal, your computer will use the one that is best suited.
step 3, restart your computer and try to connect.

Good luck, I hope this helps
