Question about Acer Aspire 6930-6455 Notebook PC

1 Answer

I am having difficulty trying to get my laptop to recognise when I have plugged in a headset microphone into the jacks on the side. The headset is brand new, not damaged. The laptop keeps using the built in microphone to record and I cannot figure out how to get it to recognise the headset. The headset does work on other computers, I have tested it. This is getting very fusterating. What can I do?

Can't get the headphone sound working from the laptop


The Laptop has 3 Ports on the side- Pink,Green,Black
Pink Port is LineIn for an external device player jack



Green Port is LineIn for the Microphone jack
Black Port is LineOut for Headset or External Speakers jack



Plug the Green jack on Headphone - into the Black Port on the laptop.
b) Go to Control Panel and open - RealTek HD Audio manager
On the top of Page are 3 Icons -



One Icon is labelled Speakers One is for Digital optics, one is for Mic,
The Speakers Icon is misleading as it is also for Headphones (LineOut)



Select Speaker Icon and make it Default. Also tick Full Range - Front LR
Ignore the 4 vertical Analog Icons on the right side.



You should now have Headphone sound if your volume is not Muted.



click start control panel on the left select hardware and sound then select manage audio devices then recording you should see a microphone right click select enable windows 7



click start control panel on the left select hardware and sound then select manage audio devices then recording you should see a microphone right click select configure speech recognition then


you will see earphones with a speaker among a list set up a microphone headset with microphone then next and next again you should see your earphones with microphone being configured



click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it or select audio from the microphone drop down list


make sure you have the right one selected and in the volume box make sure the microphone box has a tick in it or

select the voice tab


make sure that you have the right media selected also

select volume make sure the box for microphone has a tick in it


or you might have to depending on your operating system
Click start Control Pannel
click on Hardware and Sound



click on Sound
then you devices should come up ; speakers, Digital Audio, and headphones



plug your headphones in
then select headphones



at the bottom it will say set as default
select that!!



then when you disconnect your headphones it automatically switches to the speakers and when you plug them back in it automatically will switch to headphones


Hope this helps.

Hello, When I connect my headset on my laptop Asus a7sv I get sound but no sound from the speakers. I have Windows Vista en I downloaded the original driver from the asus website. I tried everything....


Most headphone jacks operate as you describe. There is a switch built into the jack that diverts the audio from the speakers to the headphones for "private listening". If it didn't work this way, there would be no way that you could enjoy an audio track or other program with others having to hearing it, too.

You could get around this problem by using an external speaker set and a "splitter cable".
moz-screenshot.pngfaaa714.jpg
A splitter cable is simply a three ended cable like the one pictured above. The first end has a male plug that matches the jack on your computer - likely a stereo mini plug. The other two ends are usually the same; but the female version. You would plug the splitter into the SPEAKER jack and the laptop speakers would be silenced. Next, you would plug the the external speakers into one of the splitter jacks and then your headset would plug into the remaining splitter jack. You would connect the microphone plug into the MIC jack on the laptop.

You'll have to tinker with the sound levels as there will be feedback issues - depending on how close and loud the speakers are to the headset microphone.

Please rate this reply - and good luck!

Where is the sound in./out for hooking up external speakers


Hi,
Look at the front and sides of the laptop for the headphone and microphone jack ports.
Some of them are coloured Pink for the microphone and green for headphone (audio out). some of them are also black.




Good luck.

Computer Does Not Detect Headset Microphone


Sound and Recording jacks stop working on the DV6000 series due to the ribbon cable running under the power button. when the power button is pushed it bends the flex cable and over time it breaks the connection rendering the front jacks useless you can buy a new upper button panel for about 20 dollars on ebay

Microphone doesn't work with small plug


I'm just taking a stab in the dark here but bare with me on this, I got a lot of info stored in this old head so it takes a while.

If you look at the jack for the microphone, Does it have 2 sleaves and a pin or just 1 sleave and a pin. If it has 2 then you will need an adaptor (Normaly Stereo jack to XLR). If it has 1 sleave then your going to need a preamp.

Microphone input on Dell Inspiron B130 doesn't work


Your jack may have been damaged, or the apple mic may not be compatible. Purchase another pc compatible mic to check. Or you could try a multimedia headset with mic that plugs into your usb port. Take a look at RadioShack for headsets, I saw one in a store near me. and they should have them online.

Dell Inspiron 6000 PC Audio Ports Damaged


You should have sound from the speakers at all times until headphones are plugged into the jack, the jack then overrides the speakers and allows you to listen using the headphones. If the speakers aren't working, it's because they're being overridden by the damaged jack. The only way to correct this is to replace the faulty jacks. You could get a set of external speakers, the con is they're bulky and inconvenient.
