Check your Volume and make sure you do not have it on mute. If you installed the drivers then the volume must be muted. Right Click on the megaphone at the bottom right near the time and open the volume controls. Make sure there is nothing muted.
You can also get to the sound and audio volume controls by clicking Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound.
Try to check the sound level. For an Acer laptop/ Windows 7 operating system, you can set the audio to zero but it does not say it is muted. Just click on the sound icon and the sound level should appear. Adjust the sound level and that should allow you to hear something.
If this does not work, try to go to the control panel (start > control panel > change the view to small icons > choose sound ) You should be able to see there two available sound drivers. Enable the one that says Realtec.
Go to Start>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices
Then make sure the slider bar below the Device volume heading is all the way to the right (As close to the High setting as possible).
Then make sure the box next to Place volume icon in the taskbar is ticked. And the Mute box is unticked.
If you click on Advanced it will take you to all the Master Volume settings make sure these aren't muted where possible and check that the little slider bar is in the middle of the two speaker icons.This will make sure sound will come out of both speakers and not just the left or right one.
If these are already set and you still get faint sound then you should try re-installing your laptops audio driver.
Hopefully this helps. Right click on your volume control icon. Open the "Volume Mixer," and make sure that nothing has the mute X on. Then right click on "Volume Control," and make sure that the volume control is checked to play all sounds, and that your Speaker box is checked. Next step is your music, if the sound was muted directly @ the music playback, this could be the problem. Open your Media Player and try to play music, if you cannot hear it, click on the mute button to the song playing. If your Player was shut off in the "mute" mode, then you will not hear sound. It Happened to me once. You will need to check all of your "Players" to see if any of them were shut off in "mute."
A couple of things to check. First I will start with the obvious, is the volume turned up? Next you need to check that the system sound is turned on. Click on Start>settings>control panel. Then double click on Sounds and Audio Devices. On the first screen make sure there is NO check in the box next to Mute and that the slider under device volume it at high. Click the advanced button and make sure nothing is muted here and all sliders are at the top. Back at the main screen click speaker volume and make sure those sliders are on high. Finally click on the Sounds tab and make sure the Sound Scheme is set to something other than no sounds.
