Question about Acer Aspire 1640Z Notebook
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.
