Turn on speakers in acer aspire e1-510-2602 notebook

Under Control Panel, pick Icon Sound.

Check that the internal speakers appear as an option. If not search for them as hidden devices and enable them.

Also check the audio mixer to make sure it is not on mute or the speakers volume control is at the bottom.

How to troubleshoot sound cracking up windows xp?

Since you are using Windows xp don't see any problems with driver for the sound card, it is probably the speakers. have you try ear phones?
if it is still the same then the sound controller is defective. There is also the possibility that there is some corruption in the OS or virus infection.
If you can borrow or buy with intention to return a USB sound card that will give you some solution. I could give you more scenarios but i think this will give you an idea on what to do next.

After windows XP set up I do not hear system sound on my computer

Since you reinstall the XP, it may not have found all the drivers for your PC.
You need to install the sound card driver since the XP built-in generic drivers do not work with your computer, I have a feeling you will need to get other drivers for all the hardware for your PC also.
Right click on 'MY COMPUTER/PROPERTIES/ then slect HARDWARE TAB/DEVICES MANAGER to see if you can see any Yellow Exclamation marks which means the drivers are not installed.
Please post back what you find.
