Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

Odd Sound Problem...

I'm not longer getting any sound from my speakers from websites or when I plug in headphones.
I can't open the Volume Mixer.
On iTunes I can listen to music through the headphones, but the music also comes from the speakers unless I mute my sound.

No volume when playing movies


The Problem> Sound: Placing the mouse pointer over the ICON to the lower right of your screen should indicate the percentage of Volume your speakers are adjusted for. Right click and you get the Open Volume Mixer section. The playback devices can be your computer speakers or a separate headset with microphone. Here you can make adjustments accordingly. At the bottom are Volume Control Options that allow you to increase or decrease the audio reception. Generally, when you insert an external Headphone with Microphone into the sound port in; an automatic disconnect may occur preventing computer speakers from working. This is common with Laptops. If you lack sound, you may need to update the sound drivers, change cables, and/or check to see if the speakers work on another device.

There is no audio on my labtop


  1. Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager.18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  2. Expand the Sound, video and game controllers category. If a sound card is listed, you have one installed. If no sound card is listed, You will need to install one


  1. If there is a yellow question mark next to the name of the sound card, there might be a problem. Right-click the name of the sound card, and then click Properties.

  2. Click the General tab, and then look in the Device status box to identify problems with the sound card.

  3. Make sure your speakers are plugged into a working power source and turned on.

  • Make sure your speakers are correctly connected to the computer.

    On your speakers, find the cable that plugs into your computer. Make sure that the speaker cable is plugged into the speakers and the correct jack on the computer. For example, if the cable is a 1/8 inch cable, there should be a round jack for it on the back of the computer. If it is a universal serial bus (USB) cable, it will plug into any USB port on your computer.

  • Make sure that the speaker volume is not muted or turned down too low.

    1. Open Volume Control by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then, under Audio Devices and Sound, clicking Adjust system volume.

    2. Under Main Volume, move the slider up or down to raise or lower the volume.

    gl_ico.png Note

    Some mobile PCs have an external volume control on the outside of the case. If you're using a mobile PC, check the external volume control.

  • Make sure your headphones are not plugged into the line out (headphone) jack of your sound card or computer (unless you want to be listening with headphones rather than speakers). When you plug in headphones, most computers automatically cut the sound to the speakers.

If these steps don't solve the problem, check the information that came with your computer and speakers or go to the manufacturer's website.

Speaker no sound


Restart the computer, plug in and unplug some headphones as the AC'97 has a silly little "remember what volume the headphones were at" feature. Go into the sound mixer (start > run > sndvol32) click options > select advanced controls. If a button exists under the "Master Volume" channel inthe mixer, click it and make sure nothing that would turn off the built-in speakers is checked.

Initially the main speakers would not shut off when the headphones were plugged into the headphone jack. I reset the audio settings to the factory default. Now the headphone jack does not work. How do I...


If you right hand mouse click on the louspeaker icon, click on open volume mixer.
You can set the headphone volume and speaker volumes from there. (depending on your OS and set up preferences)

No sound even after install audio driver


Have you got the volume control at the bottom right of your task bar? If you have, can you open the volume control, if you can, does it show it moving?
Have you tried a pair of headphones? that will check the speakers and headphone socket contacts.
Have you entered and adjusted your Sound Mixer?

Without any more info, I am just guessing.

I have a problem with my headphone jack wont work, and there is no headphone volume controller in mixer. I have a HP pavilion dv2225 (dv2000 series) with a mcp51 High Definition Audio (nvidia) sound...


You say that you get sound from the speakers but not the headphones,, what i advice you to do is going to control panel, go in hardware and sound, in device manager, look for your sound driver for example, sound max, once you found them right click and uninstall, afterwards restart your pc, that should fix your sound by reinstalling your drivers, if that doesnt work i recommend going to control panel sound settings and switching sound outputs..
