do you see the power light on in the speaker?
Do you get any error when playing any music files?

I have no sound in my desktop when i try to fix it up it show message (no audio output device instaled)i tryed many times to instal& from the internet it deosnt work still i have lock in...

Hi. I don't know how your audio got lost, but here are a couple of things you can try to do to get it working again.
Try this first.
Click your start button, then run this program:
type in: services.msc
This will bring up the services subsystem box
go to the bottom of the list, and it will say windows audio
click it one time.
If the service is not running, then there will be an option to "start"
If the service IS running, then it will have 2 choices :stop" and :restart service"
If it only says start, then click it, and it will attempt to start the service. If it works, then your audio should be restored.
If it says stop, and restart, then first stop the service.
Let it shut down the service, then try to start it up again. If it works, then this should get your sound going again.

If it starts your service, but you still have no sound, then you will have to run device manager.
To open it, open control panel, then system, then click on the hardware tab, and then click device manager.
Device Manager console will open.
This will show all the components of your computer.Look to see if there are any triangles with exclamation points. If so, and if it audio relayed, then uninstall those items one at a time, then right click in the open area of the info box, and select refresh.
You may have several items that need this done, or you may not have any at all that show the exclamation mark.

Next, you will want to click on sound, video, and game controllers.
There should be one that says something like ac'97 audio controller.
This is the one that you keep trying to install, but with no success.
double click it, an the controller properties box should open.
Click the driver tab, then click update driver.
click, no where it asks if it an connect to windows update, then click next
Click install automatically.
click next.
Wiindows will install the most compatible driver for your audio subsystem
then reboot your computer. This should fix your audio problems.
If not, then you have an onboard audio chipset failure caused bu a fault in the ac'97 controller portion of your system chipset.
Sometimes, this is a bios problem, where a glitch can disable onboard audio from within bios, so you will also need to check your bios settings,under system devices, or whatever it is called in your bios program.
Make sure onboard audio is enabled, if that option is there.
When I say this, I'm not talking about the built in pc speaker, that uses direct audio stream from the processor, so it wouldn't give you what you want.

I hope this has helped you some on fixing your audio problem.

You need drivers for your system.
All the official acer drivers for your system are here :-

As listed at the site:-

Realtek Audio Driver is your Multimedia Audio Controller.
NVIDIA VGA Driver should be your Video Controller, if that don't work try SIS VGA Driver.

SiS 661 chipset driver should fix your usb problem, if it dosn't update windows to SP2.
Get that from here: Then try again with SiS 661 Chipset Driver.

You should also install the rest of the drivers for your aspire sa80.

You said you had no access to internet so burn the drivers using a friends computer (one with internet) and install from the disc and you should be fine.

hi sweets6;
did you uninstall the old drivers before you install the new one? try to un-install it first by right clicking the audio device then select un-install, restart, then install the driver, restart and try to see if it works.

No sound on AMILO laptop

Sounds like you need to update your audio drivers. There are a couple of ways you can do that, one being checking the manufacturer's support site and entering your model information to download the correct driver. Another that may work is a manual Windows update (click start, then all programs, then near the top of page you'll see Microsoft update/Windows update) and make sure when prompted you select Custom install rather than Express install, this will show you additional software and hardware updates that should include your audio card, and you can select/add the update for the device in question and the update should/could restore your audio.
Good luck.

No Audio Output Device Installed


To immediately fix these errors in Vista, start the Windows Audio service as follows:
  1. Click Start c00834869.gif , and enter services.msc into the Start Search field.
  2. From the list of services, right-click Windows Audio and select Start . Figure 23: Starting the Windows Audio service c00847914.gif
  3. The message should no longer open. If the message opens again after the computer is restarted, repeat these steps, select Properties for Windows Audio and set Startup Type to Automatic.
If you have XP on the computer, then click Start-->Run and then type "services.msc" in the Run window and then click OK and once you get the Windows Services screen, follow the above steps.
If this doesnt work and the sound card is not onboard or integrated, then reseat the sound card preferably into a different slot and repeat the above steps.
