Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

No sound Hi, Since about 3 weeks ago I have not had any sound on my laptop. I have tried the suggestions made to others but still no luck. Someone said to click on the volume icon on the lower right hand side by the clock but I don't have one. I used to just use fn and the arrow keys. I also can't locate the mute button to check that. Thank you anne

You might have already tried this, but:
1) press the "start" or windows logo button at the bottom-left hand corner of the screen.
2) press "control panel" on the right side of the menu.
3) press the "sound" button (thumb-nails should be alphabetically ordered.)
you should be on the tab "playback". if so, check if you are currently using "realtek high-defenition audio". there should be a little green check-mark.
once you have that done, check to see if the "fn + arrow key(s)" button(s) work. if not, then you must have a speaker problem.

the last laptop i had had speakers that worked great, but they just stopped working one day all of the sudden...
so i just used the headphones port to plug in some speakers and that worked just fine.
try external speakers if you can not solve this soon.

best wishes,

I have a averatec 7100 and in 3 weeks I tried to on the power and it would not on. no power the adeptor is on I checked to see if there is a power on the adeptor but the laptop is not charging the battery...


Try removing the battery and then plug in the power adapter and try to power it on. If no good, get someone to test the power adapter with a voltage meter. The adapter may be dead. If the power adapter is okay, you may need to buy a new laptop.

Please let me know what happens, and I may be able to help more.

Can't access internet wireles router says connected hp is a vista

If Nothing else changed in the last 2 weeks, such as a new router, or other hardware changes, AND it just started happening, I suggest you do a "system restore" to a date BEFORE the problem started.
This should correct the problem, and if you did any updates or other software installations, you will need to re install them.

Finally, one option prior to system restoring is to turn off the wireless router (unplug it) and then wait a minute. Plug back in. Then turn on your computer. You can try this first if you haven't already..
Good luck..
