Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

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.

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.

Sound problem - Acer Aspire 5920


I assume you are using Windows Vista as ships with Aspire 5920's. Try the following to make sure that Windows is using the correct output options:
  1. Click on the Start Menu and go to Control Panel
  2. From Control Panel click on Hardware and Sound
  3. Click on the heading Sound and the sound configuration box will appear.
  4. The first tab is called Playback and allows you to select a playback device.  You should find your external speakers and internal speakers listed.  
  5. Click the external speakers and then click on the "set default" button to make sure that the sound is played back through those instead of your internals.
