Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

I'm having problems with the audio on my Acer Aspire One, the sound is distorted or scratchy does not matter the audio application I use, I already went over the troubleshoot steps and is the same, in addition since I'm having this problem the computer is taking longer to start up or to open any application or folder. How could it happen? Is there anything that I could try to fix it?

Sounds like you may have a virus, spyware, malware, etc. That could screw with the sound if it screwed up the sound drivers.

Regardless, you can go here to get the drivers for the audio:

http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/

Try reinstalling the drivers, if that doesn't work then use the system restore utility in the system tools folder to restore your computer back to the last date that is was working properly. If your windows registry was messed up then this system restore will fix that and the sound problem.

Also run a virus scan on your computer to make sure you don't have any viruses or spyware.

With the system taking longer then normal to start then that could mean the operating system is corrupt. In that case back-up all your important files to a flash drive and wipe out the hard drive and restore the laptop back to factory defaults, you should have gotten the software if you bought the laptop from a store new.

Any questions feel free to ask me.

Sound is scratchy.


possibly update or reinstall drivers for the sound card. In "device manager" find your soundcard and update drivers( you can always roll back to former drivers if this doesn't work. Also check mfg.s website forum for said sound card for insight into the problem. Don't forget, because it's an Acer doesn't necessarily mean the sound card is by Acer. good luck.

Sound problem: scratchy and distorted


That sound card isn't really being claimed by anyone anymore, both Intel and Realtek have washed their hands of it. You can do a few things. If it's a dell laptop, theres a Motherboard Update that fixes these problems (which must be installed first), there are also alternative drivers that come from the Linux world that you could try (no offense but your sound card isn't that wonderful to begin with, so I would think just sound without distortion would be good sound. It also just might be time to update your drivers and have them with me strangely enough. Let me know what you want to do.
