Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

1 Answer

No sound!! There is no sound on my computer -- via the laptop speakers, headphones or external speakers. I have checked volume controls/mute button -- not the problem. Video works fine (but there's no sound). I cannot here system sounds or music, movies, etc. Any ideas what could be wrong? I have gone through the device manager/trouble shooting steps, etc. The device status says the driver is enabled and working properly. Nothing seems to work. Any help?? Thanks!

Speakers don't mute with headphones on


When you plug headphones into a laptop computer, the laptop speakers are usually cut off automatically. However, if you wish to do this manually, there is a way. One common reason for shutting off the speakers is so that your quiet workplace won't fill up with sound if you should unplug the headset for some reason while playing music or performing some other sound-filled activity.

Muting the Speaker but Not the System On a typical laptop running Windows, left-click on the double chevrons of the "Show hidden icons" button in the Quick Launch toolbar at the bottom-right corner of the screen. This will display all your hidden quick-launch icons, and usually these will an include an icon of a speaker that launches the "Volume Control" utility. If not, then you can also access the Volume Control utility from the Control Panel, via the "Sounds and Audio Devices" application. Simply launch that application, click on the "Volume" tab, and click on the "Advanced" button in the "Device volume" section. In the Volume Control utility, click on the "Advanced" button near the bottom-left area of the window. Near the bottom of the advanced controls window, there will be a section labeled "Other Controls." Here you should see some kind of check-box option labeled something to the effect of "PC Speaker Mute." If you check that box and save your changes, the laptop's speakers will be shut off, but you will still be able to listen to any music or other sounds through your headset. It's as simple as that. To cancel the shutoff, simply uncheck the box and save your changes. This method works for all versions of Windows still widely in use. Hope this helps.

I can't turn up the volume n my laptop


Which operating system ?

Acer laptops are typically sold with pre-installed Windows operating systems that offer sound-adjustment features for increasing the volume on the laptop's built-in stereo speakers. These same functions can also be used in tandem with external speakers or headphones to increase the volume, as well as mute all sound on the laptop. If the computer should output an unusually low volume, fixing the problem may be no more involved than sliding a control switch with the computer mouse.

Click once on the speaker icon in the taskbar on the lower-right corner to open a rectangular window with a slide control. Click and hold the left mouse button on the slide control to drag it upward, increasing the volume to the laptop's maximum setting. Click the "Mixer" button below the slider control to open another window with volume controls for "Speakers" and "Applications," adjusting each slide control upward to increase the volume. Be sure the speaker icon below each control is not accidentally muted. Click once on each speaker icon to remove the red circle with a slash through it, which will restore audio. Click the Microsoft flag or "Start" button in the lower-left corner if the shortcut speaker icon is missing from the taskbar. Click "Control Panel" to select "Adjust Sounds" from the Hardware and Sounds category. Hope this helps

Audio will play on internal speakers only


Are you plugging the external speakers into the right port? Try plugging them into the Headphone port if there is no external speaker port. Make sure you have the external speakers turned on and the volume turned up. Also make sure you have the software in the computer to have the volume turned up and not muted. Check the audio sound properties and make sure the volume is turned up and not on mute.

Click Start/Control Panel then look for Audio or Sound and check the volume.

You can also click the megaphone at the bottom right near the time to adjust the volume and check for mute.

I don't have any sound


If you actually hear sound from your laptop when playing other audio files like MP3s or audio CDs, the first thing you check if the Volume Control of the media player that you are using to watch the soaps. If these are streaming videos, look at the speaker/volume level and make sure it is set to high. Make sure as well the volume icon usually located at the bottom portion of the video playback is not turned off or muted.

If no audio at all from your computer, plug in external speakers or try headphones to see if you will get sound. If you do, most likely, your internal speakers have to be replaced. If no audio even on external speakers or headphones, check your general volume controls, set them to high and make sure none are muted, and verify that you have the correct audio controller selected for playbak.

If that still fails, reinstall your audio driver and if no improvement, most likely, you need the audio controller/motherboard replaced.

No sound


Here are some things to check:

  • If you have external speakers, make sure that they're plugged into a working power source and that they're turned on.

  • Make sure your speakers are correctly connected to the computer.

    On your speakers, make sure that the cable that plugs into your computer is plugged into both the speakers and the correct jack on your computer (the jack that goes to your sound card). Most sound cards have at least three jacks. Plug the speaker cable into the line-out jack. This jack often has a symbol showing an arrow pointing away from the jack. If the jacks aren't labeled, check the information that came with your computer to see what each jack does.

    ?id=8440e487-7ae3-427b-a9b7-c861a5521758Most sound cards have at least one line-out jack to connect speakers and a line-in jack to connect an audio input device.

  • Make sure the speaker volume isn't turned down too low or muted. This is particularly important for laptops, which often have small speakers that can be hard to hear.

    1. Click to open Volume.

    2. Move the slider up to increase the volume.

      Make sure the Mute button is not turned on. If the button looks like this: ?id=6b62e2ae-431c-4fb5-8905-aaaea5b445a4, muting is turned off. If the button looks like this:?id=0f47efa2-ffcc-466d-a723-bd0ce4640578 , click it to turn off muting.
      Note

      • Some laptops have an external volume control on the outside of the case. If you're using a laptop, check the external volume control to make sure it's not turned all the way down.

  • Make sure your headphones aren't plugged into the line-out (headphone) jack of your sound card or computer (unless you want to listen with headphones rather than speakers). When you plug in headphones, most computers automatically cut the sound to the speakers.

  • If your computer is supposed to have a sound card, make sure that the sound card is installed and that it's working properly.

    You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.
    To make sure that your computer has a sound card

    1. Click to open Device Manager.‌ ?id=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    2. Double-click Sound, video and game controllers to expand that category. If a sound card is listed, you have one installed. If no sound card is listed, check the information that came with your computer to see if there's supposed to be a sound card installed. If there should be a sound card installed, you'll need to install one. See Install or remove a sound card.
      Note

      • If you think you have a sound card installed but you don't see it under Sound, video and game controllers, double-click Other devices to check for any audio devices listed there.

    To make sure that your sound card is working properly

      If there's a yellow question mark next to the name of the sound card, there might be a problem.

    1. Click to open Device Manager.‌ ?id=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    2. Double-click Sound, video and game controllers to expand that category, right-click the name of the sound card, and then click Properties.

    3. Click the General tab, and then check the Device status box to identify problems with the sound card.

      If there's a problem, you might need a new driver for your sound card. For more information, see Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly.

If these actions don't solve the problem, there might be a problem with the hardware for your sound card, although in most cases sound problems are caused by missing or out-of-date drivers, or a problem with your speakers. If you suspect you have a hardware problem, contact the manufacturer of your computer or sound card.

Adding remote control activated ''mute'' to TV headphone jack


Generally when the head phone jack is inserted the speakers will get disconnected automatically.

If you are going to use external amplifier you can try the AV sockets. Opening the TV you may require the special screw drivers some times.

There is no sound from my lg laptop


May be the problem is with your computer settings or perhaps an outdated or faulty driver, and not with the speakers. Checking to see if any settings or drivers can fix the problem is a good idea before attempting to open the laptop or giving in and buying external speakers.Try following steps:

1: Test the audio in more than one program. If audio works in some programs but not others, the "mute" setting might be on in one or more
programs and should be unmuted.

2: Turn up the volume on the external volume control. It may be on the side or on the front of your laptop, or even on the keyboard (some models have a touch-sensitive strip at the top of the keyboard that you might not have realized controls the volume). Also look for any "mute" shortcut keys you might have accidentally pressed (the symbol looks like a speaker with a diagonal line through it) and try pressing it again to see if sound is restored.

3: Go to your volume controls ("Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound," "Audio Devices," "Sound" and "Adjust System Volume"), and under "Main Volume," make sure the slider is slid up and that the volume is not set to "mute.

4: Plug a pair of headphones into the headphone jack on the laptop and see if you can hear sound that way. If you hear noise in headphones or external speakers but not the built-in speakers, either your drivers or the speakers are the problem. Try uninstalling the drivers for your speakers in "Device Manager" and reinstalling them by visiting your laptop maker's website and downloading any updated drivers you need.

5: Open "Device Manager" by going to "Start," "Control Panel" "System" and "Maintenance." Open "Sound "Video, and Game Controllers," and see if a sound card is detected. If there is but there is a yellow question mark next to it, right click it, and go to "Properties," "General" and "Device Status" to see how to fix any problems. You may need to update or install new drivers from your computer maker's website. If there is no yellow question mark, uninstall and reinstall the drivers to see if this fixes the problem.

6: Reinstall your audio device drivers from your laptop brand's website if a sound card is not detected. It is possible some recent changes removed the drivers and made your speakers undetectable, so reinstalling the drivers should fix the problem.
