This really seems to be a prob specific to Acer models. I've owned 4 laptops and never had this prob until my first Acer. Only thing that seems to work is to restart in Safe Mode, run a self diag, and restart in Normal Mode. Works every time! Unfortch I have not found a permanent solution yet.
chk if the mute is on if not try listening to windows default sound ifnot chk the sound drivers in device manager if there is any esclamation mark or question mark or red X try to update or reinstall the sound drivers
The process of installing the driver is not proper. If you download the driver from the Acer's site extract it (make sure to remember when it was extracted), look on the destination where it was save then run the ".exe" file to install the driver.
Hi bertyboo, Acer does not have sound drivers for Vista.
However your Aspire 1640Z notebook should be able to use the RealTek driver included in the link below. The download button is located at the right side of the page. Scroll down the site & look under, Operating System Requirements: (Vista is included). http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/win/115727
