Sound problems with acer travelmate

Hi ,

Having recently purchased an acer travelmate 4074 pentium M 2mhz , 1 gig ddram 100 gig hard drive and dvd burner, i have found that only one of the speakers is working, i have had a look through the settings, and i cant see anything, but am not 100% i have not missed a setting. I am wondering if there is a common problem with this model, and if it is a hardware / software or setting problem, i have sent an email to acer but still awaiting a reply.
Any assistance would be very appreciated

thankyou

peter

Check the balance settings in the Volume Properties. At the bottom right of the screen you should see a Volume icon. Right click and select 'adjust volume properties'. In the box that shows up, adjust the slider bar to middle under the 'Balance' column.

If that does not work, then there could be a defect with the internal speakers. Since you only just bought the laptop, you should be able to get it replaced under warranty.

HDD capacity greater than 128GB with Acer Travelmate 2300


ive had a look on the acer website and there is a replacement bios available , but theres no mention if it would enable large Hd support , rather than flashing your bios and potentially destroying your laptop i would purchase a external drive , you can get the enclosures for 10-20 pounds and fit a decent size HD in this

New DVD won't run properly - continual loud whirring noise.


Hi,

Did you check that the DVD has not been damaged? Also, is it clean without scratches? You should also try it in another drive if possible.

Upgrading acer laptop RAM


Hi,
You Can Actually Upgrade This To 2 Gig Memory.
Each Slot Will Take 1 A Gig Strip.
I,d suggest Buying another 256 mb Strip, To Put Into Slot 2.
Or Buy a 512mb ( Half Gig ) Which Will Give you 750mb With your Existing Strip Already In There. ** Recommend 1 Gigabyte Max** 2 gig of Ram in This Baby Would Probably Start Glowing.
You Can Buy DDR/266/333 In 256/512/1 Gig Strips. These Are Commonly Known As SD-RAM-Modules.

HARD DRIVE IN 2 PARTS


Hi,

You can redirect all your data to be saved into drive D and even downloads. Please look for the preferences of all your application software (can be seen in tools, option, change the default drive in Save In menu). Now, to free some space delete all temporary files from Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup. Hope this gives you an idea.

Best regards,
Rosener

I can't get the full capacity of 320 gig drive


the hard drive you bought is not compatible with your motherboard. I am pretty sure that your board is only compatible with IDE ATA hard drive. you can still use it as external hard drive though.
