I want to clarify how you are looking for your device
Step 1 If there is a speaker icon in your taskbar, lower right side of your screen, is there an x on it? Right click on the speaker and click on playback devices. A window should come up with your devices. If there is something in the window does it have power bars on the right and possibly a green check mark on it? Right click on the device and you should see "disable" or "enable". If you see enable click on that. Right click on speaker again and click on "open volume mixer" and adjust your sound level.
Step 2 Click on "start" and click on "control panel" to open. In your list or Icons find "device manager". Right click on that , open, then continue. Click on the box with + next to sound audio and game controllers. You should see a dropdown with your device. Right click on your device and you should see "disable" or "enable" if you see enable click on that.

When trying to isolate and diagnose the specific cause of any computer fault, think back to when the computer was working normally and then list any hardware, software or settings changes between that time and when the fault you are experiencing first appeared.

Sound/Audio problems are often caused by simple settings errors. Before trying anything else, think if you have connected any new device or installed or used any new software on the computer that is Sound/Audio-related (such as a cellphone, an MP3/MP4/MP5 player, a bluetooth device, a microphone, a Voice Over Internet Protocol [VOIP] Headset or multiplexing device, a dial-up modem or dial-up modem based transaction or stock keeping or postal franking device, a multimedia player, a speech recognition program, media playing software, fax/phone software, etc., etc. Any of these sorts of devices or software are capable of changing a computer's default Sound/Audio settings.


Reset the Sound/Audio to the correct default device - start -> control panel -> sounds speech and audio devices/hardware and sounds -> audio -> select main audio on-board chip or sound card from the Playback Device drop down menu or the panel of different device options -> apply -> OK -> restart computer.


Quite often nothing more needs to be done to restore Sound/Audio that was disabled by settings changes or errors.



If none of the above suggestions solves the problem, then the cause might be a possible Sound/Audio Driver conflict, corruption or file deletion issue.
Uninstall all components of the installed Sound/Audio Driver from Add or Remove Programs/ Uninstall a Program or its equivalent in your Operating System - > restart the computer -> reinstall the Sound/Audio Driver from the Drivers and Utilities Installation Disc or download, save (so as to create and keep on the computer the Sound/Audio Driver Setup Files in case of future Sound/Audio Driver problems) and install it from the Support and Download pages of the Acer website -> restart the computer.


The Sound/Audio Driver for this model can be downloaded from here once you enter your precise Model Number (usually to be found on a label on the underside of the netbook) :

There are no sounds coming out from my computer... Wether it is mp3,wav, etc. I can't make a computer call coz my computer says there are no sound card detected in my system...


if you just installed a vid card with HDMI, sometimes the bios will recognize a new sound device, and disable the onboard sound, leaving only the HDMI audio, which is useless if not being used. if this is the case, go into your BIOS and set your sound device from "auto" to "enabled"

Most likely you need to install drivers for your sound card. To confirm this, please check your device Manager (right-click My Computer -> Manage -> Device Manager) for unknown/improperly installed devices.

You might encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:
  • Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that might be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.
  • Your sound device requires an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see Windows Update, or see the sound device manufacturer's Web site.
  • The selected sound device does not support Secure Audio Path (SAP). If you have multiple sound devices installed on your computer, try using a different one.
  • Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see Windows Help and Support or refer to your sound device's documentation.
  • You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device (such as a sound card), and then try to play the file again. If you can't install a sound device in your computer, you might be able to resolve the problem by attaching USB-based headphones or USB-based speakers to your computer instead.
