Hello again smi2, we did remote support that one night, You really need to take the laptop to a professional, no one, really no one can solve this problem here, I spend too much time on that laptop and I know it needs a fresh windows install and if that doesn't solve the problem you have a possibly faulty laptop in your hands, best to take it to a professional who can do physical work on the laptop to figure it out, possibly needs to replace the motherboard, who knows.

You need to go to acer website and download the drivers for your notebook... or try going to control panel and add hardware. list of hardwares will come up... all the hardwares that has a question mark beside it needs the driver to be installed. right click that device and click install option, it will look for necessary driver on your system and if it says it didn't find anything. your last resort is go to the website under technical support and downloads.

goodluck!

Hi''


Please specify your computer specs, mainly what "Operating system are you using", What type of PC do you have...

for example

Acer Veriton 7900
Windows XP service Pack 2
__________________________________________________
Secondly, what type of sound card do you have ? Is it an "onboard" sound card, or a sound card that you or a technician installed via PCI slot
__________________________________________________
One way to specify your "sound card vendor" is by looking on your motherboard.There are various chips on your motherboard that have certain "brand names" imprinted on them. Sound cards these days(standard), can either be : Realtek, Cmedia, Avance, Envy or Sis and maybe Intel. So take a closer look on your MB and state which Vendor it is
__________________________________________________
If you are running Windows Xp Professional you can download the following http://www.halfdone.com/ukd/UKD_14-20_Beta.zip
Then unzip to a folder, extract the Lists which are also in a zip format to that folder. Run the program unknownDevices in that folder. Locate and find for "unknown device" or "PCI Device" or "Unknown PCI Device" OR for one tab that is expanded already, stating information that it is a unknown device. Then, if you expand that tab even further, it should tell you what kind of sound card vendor it is. This is the time to go to the vendors website and download the l8est driver.
____________________________________________________
Please let me know if one of the solutions mentioned above has worked...
