When I shutdown my laptop (Acer Apire 3002LCi) and start it back up 90% of the time the speakers don't work. I have to go to the trouble shoot which tells me to delete the speakers and reinstall them ... Every time! ... It get's annoying!. Is there anything I can do ... myself... to stop this?

Re: Internal Speakers Are Not Found
When you say you have to re-install them, are you actually installing the sound drivers from the acer restore programme or cd, or are you just letting windows find them(the sound driver) each time you go through the process of deleting them.
Try installing drivers from the acer website to see if there is any newer driver versions
If it continues, you may have to restore the original laptop settings back to factory default, assuming it hasn't done this since the day of setup, but make sure you back up all settings and documents to cd or dvd first.

Computer speaker is not working!! connect an external speaker,check how is the sound if it is working fine,need to replace the internal speaker, if the external speaker is not working too need to replace the sound card.
It is possible that:
1. You may have recently installed an add-on/external device such as a multimedia keyboard which changed the audio output from internal to external;
2. The laptop's internal speaker might have gone dead (highly unlikely but still a possibility) - try plugging in external speakers or a headset and check;
3. Most if not all laptops uses a female stereo babyphone jack to connect to external speakers. This jack has a built-in switch that cuts off internal speaker if an external is plug in. If you are using eternal or headset from time to time, it is possible that the switch might have locked to external and does not switch back to the internal;
4. You may have a hardware issue specifically the sound card/chipset. This of course would require an inshop repair which may be better off with an authorized service center. At worst is have the entire laptop replace if it is confirmed to be a hardware issue.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
