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!

Does your laptop have a "hot key" for speaker mute?

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.

Where can i find the sound on my laptop,i can't hear nothing on my lap top


Most generally, audio problems on laptops are not hardware issues to begin with, but problems with the software that controls the audio components.
Check the ObviousBefore delving into repair solutions, there is the possibility you can't hear audio from your laptop due to basic settings that have been changed. Check the volume level. If your laptop has physical buttons to control audio, make sure the mute button is off and the volume is turned up. Check the volume control on your operating system to make sure the slider corresponds to your button settings. Physical buttons on your laptop may stop working for a number of reasons, so be sure to confirm your software audio settings using the audio controls found in your operating system. Also, make sure nothing is plugged into the headphone jack. Headphones or any other audio device plugged into the headphone jack will mute your laptop speakers.
Reinstall the DriverA driver is a program that controls the hardware of your computer. Rule out file corruption of the audio device driver on your laptop by reinstalling the driver. This can be accomplished by locating the device in your operating system control panel and uninstalling the driver. When you reboot your computer, the operating system will search for available drivers for your audio device and install them.
Upgrade the DriverHardware manufacturers for devices on your computer frequently update drivers to resolve issues discovered after the original drivers were released. These updates could contain fixes to the very problem you have encountered that prevents the audio device from working properly. Just as you located your audio device to re-install the driver, use the device manager in your operating system to identify the specific sound device used by your laptop. Go to that manufacturer's website and locate the latest driver for this device. Download the most recent driver release and install it on your computer.
Check the Headphone JackThe most common point of failure in laptop audio hardware is the jack that connects your headphones or external speakers to your laptop. When this jack fails, it could mute the sound to your internal speakers as well, but more commonly it affects only the audio heard when you try to plug in your headphones. If you suspect the headphone jack is the problem, you should take your laptop to an authorized repair center for service. Depending on your model, you may have to replace a single inexpensive component or your entire computer main circuit board to remedy the problem.

My laptops speakers stopped working


Have you tried a pair of headphones to see if they work?
Is the sound ouput muted? (a lot of laptops have a physical button to
do this...

check to see if the laptop is muted. Also, check the
volume control to see if everything is up where it should be, including
Speaker Out.

If I've got this all straight, the only thing that it can be is an
issue with the plug on the speakers and the jack on the laptop.

Obviously the computer is putting out sound to the headphone jack as
evidenced by your ability to listen through headphones. The speakers
work on another computer. So, it has to be something specific about
the Speakers on this laptop. Plug/Jack problem is the only thing that
comes to mind.

No sound on laptop


Try:

2. Click on Start and select Run. Now type devmgmt.msc and press enter. Check if the sound driver is not installed or has been disabled.
3. Check the speakers. Use external headphones, if the headphones are working properly, means the speakers of Laptop are damaged.
