Hey, sorry for taking so long here, I stepped out for the evening. The sound settings are in the control panel. Some drivers, when initially installed, do not automatically adjust te volume, set it very low, or set it on mute, and will need to be manually adjusted. To see the driver that you have for the sound, you will need to open the device manager, right click on "my computer", open properties, open the hardware tab, and click on device manager. From here you can see the audio driver. If a driver is missing it will have a yellow question mark next to the device. First start by finding the sound or audio devices and uninstall the drivers, then reboot. It will find the devices and reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't work or if you're missing a driver, then go to Acer's support site and download any and all audio/sound drivers for your machine. Sometimes two devices of the same class with two separate drivers will be so similar that the machine will see either driver as the correct driver or best driver, where as each driver is made specifically for each device and only one will work. This only happens when the correct driver isn't there. If the correct driver is there, it's assigned to the device, therefore it will use the correct driver. If there is more than one sound card used in this particular machine then download all drivers, and the hardware wizard will find the correct driver. If you have any further problems after this let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Hi Janis552,

Thank you for bringing the problem to my attention. Sounds like the the particular keys you mentioned is not working anymore. One way to test the issue is to log to the BIOS menu. Turn off the computer and wait for 10 secs. Turn on the computer and keep on tapping F1 or F2 to go to BIOS menu. Once you are inside the Bios menu test the keys that you mentioned if they will react. If there is no reaction to the keys then the problem is the keyboard itself. You need to repalce the keyboard. You may call Lenovo tehc support at 18774536686

My volume has been disabled and i cant figure how to get it back

Have you tried just using system restore here is how ,It could of been a driver install incorrectly or something that you installed, think back to when you lost the sound did you install something or did you try to install a system driver?When you go under system device are there any question marks near any of the devices?If you have just a little knowledge your best bet may be just to try the first thing I mentioned.

Sound system Configuration !! only rear speakers working !

The "control panel" has things like "sound effect manager" or "sound max" in case of intel chipsets. Thru this you can configure the audio in and rear from laptop to act as front and rear outs.

The two can function cariably not always as rear and audio in!
Thats what my frnd did once to get quadrophonics to work.

Hope that might work for you too.. All loes in how you confiogure the sound effect manager or similar thing in the control panel..

Hope it works for you

Dell Inspiron SigmaTel C-Major Audio won't continue to work

if after reinstalling the operating system and the sound drivers you get the same problem then your sound chip is faulty,

dont know if there is a pcmci sound card but if there is, that would be your solution or else consider swapping the board
