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:,, and 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 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!

Resource conflict - PCI network controller on motherboard BUs:02, Device:02, Function:00

You can adjust the resources in device manager. right click on my computer (which you will find from either your desktop or from start menu), select manage, then on the left side click on device manager, on the right side, find the problem device, click properties, go to the resources page, you will be able to view and change the resources, adjust them so there is no conflict.

Sound problem


Start by getting a program called SIW from Gabriel Topala's website. Once you install this, under hardware and audio or sound devices, you find all brand and part specific info to give further information.

Also try under audio devices in control panel, check which device is set to default, and tinker with it, if you change it to a new option and you hear a "BING" you have fixed it. NOTE: Write down the original setting so you can put it back if you dont fix it.

If you need further help let me know, I CAN solve this problem.
