Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

2 Answers

I have an Acer Aspire One for 3/4 years and have never used the speaker buttons. Now I need to do so, and altho I have clicked on the Up & Down buttons with the speaker symbols, still no sound, just the page moving. Also the F8 button with the symbol brings no sound either. Being a Computer Dummy, I need simple instructions, but would really appreciate help. Marie Keany

    I did explain that I am inexperienced with PC's and would be totally unable to download drivers, etc. I would not know where to begin. Surely there is a simple button or combination of buttons I could click on to get the sound.

Try to uninstall and reinstall the sound driver. Go to MY COMPUTER, right click and choose MANAGE, choose DEVICE MANAGER, choose SOUND,VIDEO AND GAME CONTROLLERS, and then check for the YELLOW EXCLAMATION MARK. which indicates that there is no sound driver installer. If not YELLOW EXCLAMATION MARK. I suggest you uninstall and reinstall the sound driver.

If before you have sound in your computer, try run the SYSTEM RESTORE by going to START, choose ACCESSORIES, choose SYSTEM TOOLS, choose SYSTEM RESTORE and then choose the PREVIOUS DATE that your computer is working fine and with sounds.

If not, try this another solution, Go to START, choose ACCESSORIES, right click on COMMAND PROMPT, choose RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR (you should be in this directory C:\Windows\system32> and then type the word SCF /SCANNOW and then press enter. It will fix errors in your windows registry.

I hope it helps you. Please post comment if you need more help. Regards

    Make sure also that your sound it not muted. Go to sound icon in your desktop screen and right click then, uncheck the MUTE box.
