Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
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.
