Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook
I have Vista running and my audi device shows that all is well, but I do not hear any sound at my speakers nor when I insert headphones. It shows the Headphone jcks, but does not detect when plugging in.
First few basics: Make sure you haven't muted the sound through the system's volume control. Be sure that when you are testing to see what's what that you actually have a running piece of media, e.g., that you know works and should be producing detectable sound.
Make sure everything is plugged in and powered on. Also, unplugging and restarting the audio devices will often reset.
Check device manager for the sound device(s) (My Computer > Properties...) and see if it is showing an error on the driver or the hardware.
If no other obvious solution, attempt to update drivers and make sure they are current. Since detecting the type of equipment you have, and its numerous technical specifications, can be quite difficult, it may be easiest to use a site that will scan your system and determine the updates needed. Three available sites: www.driveragent.com, www.drivers.com, and www.drivershq.com. You may find this more helpful than trying to search for one individual driver, as that can be very difficult. If none of these things helps, please post back as to the outcome of the above. Otherwise, thanks for rating FixYa!
Guest: You should probably post your issue as a separate problem of its own, as this is not the same as an inability to use your sound equipment. But you most likely will want to locate a program to help you discover the password. One simple thing to check, if you are the only one who uses the PC, would be to make sure to try twice - once with caps lock on and once off. Many password issues end up being a matter of unintended capitals.
