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.

I just set up my water dancing speakers... one of them doesn't emit any sound. Lights and water work...just no sound. Is this normal?


no it is not normal. Did you plug in the 3.5 mm plug into the headphone or speaker out port ? The Usb cable just powers the speakers. Check computer has both left and right speakers volume set correctly . Check the speaker icon right click on it . Check
Mixer and volume control .

I would like to reinstall my speakers to my dell computer somehow they have been removed? Bar Code CN0D3431 48220 49T 06J3. I know longer can locate the installation disk?


There are a few simple things to check first:

Make sure your computer has a sound card.

You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.

  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. See Install or remove a sound card.

  3. 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.

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

  • 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.

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.

It seems odd that your speakers would die after reformatting the driver. I would recommend trying to update the drivers for the sound device. It is possible that some sort of mixer software or enhanced features of the sound card are disabled. Also ensure that they are plugged into the green port on your sound device.

I hooked up the speakers to the back of the PC with the matching green plug in. The speakers are on and working but no sound is coming out. I also clicked on the speaker icon and turned the volume all the...


The first thing to do is to determine if it is the speakers or the computer that is having issues. Plug the speakers into an MP3 play, disk player or some other audio device that has a headphone jack and verify they work. If they do, then you need to determine why the computer is not sending sound to the jack. When you right click on the speaker icon, and select "Open volume mixer" there should be multiple sliders to turn up. Make sure the internal speaker/headphone jack volume is up (and mute not selected) as well as the "applications / windows sounds" volume. comment back to me if you require further assistance and if so, include the model computer and operating system in your comments. Good-luck - Subdriver

My speakers wont work suddenly unless I am using my headphones


Make sure in the volume mixer that it is using the right sound device. You most likely have it set to the wrong device output. When you plugged in the headphones in kinda automatically switches, but to use the speakers again you have to do it manually. Just hook up a cheap av receiver to your computer and use this headphone input instead. a 100$ 5.1 av receiver beats any pc speaker system.
