Try headphones.
Try different types of music (CD, mp3, video, DVD) - all same?
Is the Control Panel sound icon un-crossed (not muted). Did you press the Mute function key by mistake?

My Laptop is running very slow and it is often giving problems with my sound.


http://www.piriform.com/

try running ccleaner, download and install from above web page.
run the cleaner to delete old files and clutter, run registry to tune windows.
In tools section go into start-up and disable all programs, and then any programs that need to start on switching on will still start, but normally lots of other programs start up that dont need to, stopping these from starting up will speed up your laptop. Don't woory about disabling programs, when you want to use them they will start as normal

A distorted sound is coming from my speakers even if i connect speakers


It is a possibility that you are getting feedback from a device that is near by. Possibly a cell phone or other device. I would recommend moving the computer to a different location and removing all electronic devices from beside the computer, then reconnecting speakers.

It is also possible that you have a bad sound card. If that is the case, you will need to purchase another sound card and replace the old one. I have included instructions on how to replace your sound card below:

Here is a site where you can purchase the sound card you may be in need of:
http://www.meritline.com/laptop-sound-card-usb-port---p-39078.aspx?source=nextaghdac

There are other sites such as Ebay where you can also purchase the sound card. The type of sound card you need is a PCMCIA Sound Card for an Acer Laptop.

Here are instructions on how to install a new sound card:
    Installing a PCMCIA Sound Card in Your Acer Laptop
  1. Step 1 Locate the PCMCIA card slot on your computer. On an Acer laptop, the slot may be either on the left or the right side of the laptop.
  2. Step 2 Remove the PCMCIA card cover by pressing the "Eject" button and pulling the cover out.
  3. Step 3 Insert your PCMCIA sound card with the connectors facing in and the upper label facing up. Some PCMCIA cards will have an arrow to make it easier to orient the card correctly.
  4. Step 4 Press the PCMCIA card gently into place.
  5. Step 5 Windows will recognize the PCMCIA card and search for the needed software.
  6. Step 6 If your sound card came with an installation CD, insert it in the CD slot and follow the instructions to install applications and utilities for use with your new sound card.
    Installing a USB Sound Card in Your Acer Laptop
  7. Step 1 Turn the computer on.
  8. Step 2 Plug the USB sound card into the appropriate USB plug on your laptop.
  9. Step 3 Wait for the computer to recognize the new USB device.
  10. Step 4 Insert the sound card manufacturer's CD if prompted to do so.
If a sound card is not the issue, then you possibly have circuitry issues on your laptop motherboard. For this issue, you may need to consult a certified technician at your local computer repair shop.

(If you are not a professional or are used to opening your laptop, I would recommend taking it to a local computer repair shop for a certified technician to look at this issue. Do bare in mind if you have a warranty, opening your laptop and not being a certified professional would void any warranty agreement you have with your manufacturer)

I have Acer Aspire ONE 8.9" but and it is


Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

Dell inspiron1525 laptop trouble


This is going to be a problem either with the sound card malfunctioning after the machine warms up, or feed back from the speakers due to a wiring issue. Either way, this is a hardware problem, and you shouldn't have this or any problem with the machine, especially with it only being 10 days old. Take it back for an exchange. Demand an exchange and don't let them give you the run around. When you get the new machine, you will see that you shouldn't have any problems with it for years to come. Also, don't let this bother you about Dell machines, they're one of the best machines on the market. Just like everything else, there are a few lemons.
