Acer Aspire 1690 Audio output not working

Audio output for headphone connection or speakers does not produce any sound. However, speaker system works just fine. I've had problems with the port for the powersource on the laptop itself, so it shorts out constantly and have been through 3 powerpacks. (the problem i belive may be relative to the lack of audio possibly) any solutions for either?

For audio output: I would locate the latest audio drivers for your speaker system - a few possible solutions:

1)Best: Make sure you are connected to the internet (I am assuming Windows XP - Vista may vary): Go to Start --> Control Panel --> Printers & Other Hardware --> System --> Hardware --> Device Manager --> Sound, video & Game controllers - look for a yellow exclamation mark by any of the devices, right click that device and click install drivers [note - this procedure will also work for your port problem, most likely; if not, just remove the port, restart your computer, and the "found new hardware wizard" will re-add it properly upon startup]

2) just enter the manufacturer nad model number of your spekaers in search bar and include the word "drivers" as your search term.

3) Go to www.driverguide.com

Hi,
Based on the information you have provided, it seems that the issue might be with the Audio Output Jack.
Usually some Computers have an additional Audio Jack on the CPU.
If you have such an option you can try connecting the Speakers and Headphone to that Audio Port and check.
If you do not have an additional Audio port, then it is confirmed that the issue is with Audio Output Port.
It is recommended to replace the Sound Card. You can also check with your favorite Computer Retailer, if only the Audio Output Port can be replaced.
Please let me know if you have further questions or need any assistance.

Why does the audio cut out on acer z5700 speakers when you connect to a source at the audio output in the back.(expect this only when you connect headphones to headphone input)


When you connect headphones to your computer the computer will only send sound through the headphones and not allow sound to come out of the speakers. this is the way almost all audio drivers are setup, it detects the speakers and the headphones as 2 different devices and will only play sound through one (headphones first and if there are no headphones then speakers).

The only way I know to resolve this (and I hate this suggestion) is to purchase a headphone splitter. Connect the speakers and the headphones through the splitter, the quality of the splitter will determine the quality of the sound.

You could try going to the audio driver options (if there is any program installed by the audio driver) to see if you can get it to play through both but with both my Acer laptops I have been unsuccessful.

Hope this helps.

Problem in external speaker when connected to acer 5738Z LAPTOP


The audio jack on the laptop is for headphones and most likely cannot it cannot deliver sufficient power to drive unpowered speakers.
Check the audio jack with headphones, if the volume setting is high and you still can't get sounds from the headphone and the mute switch is not selected then the audio amp in the laptop is faulty.

My speakers are not working I need help


go to the control panel ... first under the device manage in system / hardware check that the drivers for your sound card are installed .... next go to the sound section in the control panel and make sure the proper device is selected fro playback ... make sure nothing is muted ... other things that can mess up your sound include onboard sound disabled in BIOS, bad connections or bad speaker power supply ... also you can test the audio output using headphones

No sound output from rear speaker jack


Plugging headphones into the computer will disable sound output from the sound card by design.
