Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Very often, assuming you have checked connections and power, sound issues are related to drivers. There are a lot of drivers out there, and the right one depends on a number of factors including your OS and other equipment and parameters. 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 any updates needed. You may find this more helpful than trying to search for one individual driver, as that can be nearly impossible. Additionally, I have seen numerous users reporting issues with attempting to find, or using, the drivers located at the Acer site.
Three available sites: www.driveragent.com, www.drivers.com, and www.drivershq.com. Note that these are only three samples, and there are a number of sites that offer this type of service - choose whichever one you may feel most comfortable with. You can also check the Windows Update Catalog (though it is complex and complicated, and you have to know what you need) at http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/home.aspx for a driver that may be compatible, if you feel confident doing this.
If none of these things helps, please post back as to the outcome of the above. Otherwise, thanks for rating FixYa!

click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer hope this helps
