Hi, i also have a speaker problem (Acer laptop 5610 series). After changing some settings of the speakers in the control panel, they have an echoed tinny effect. I reverted to the default settings, which did nothing. They did start to work properly for a while a week after it started, but started again when I opened Media Player (it isn't MP settings). Can someone please help? It would be most appreciated, I've only had the my computer for a month.
The problem is from an effect manager. my cousin mucked around with it a while ago and put it on "sewer effect" and didnt change it back. discovered this only a week ago, i think i'll stangle him. thank-you for you're help sandrew and griffithsks. my mic was muted when i checked so i was frantic on finding out what was wrong. i've had a few issues with the net so i apolagise for responding so late.
I have also had an acer aspire notebook for about a month too. I have had several problems including sound ones and have contacted the acer helpdesk. I have had excellent help and service each time from them and problems have been solved quickly and easily. Tel:- 08708 531000

Re: another speaker problem
This is because your inbuilt microphone is probably set at boost, and picking up the sound of speakers.
Go to speaker icon in task bar an select 'Open volume control' and click on options, then advanced controls, then click mute on the microphone slider control.

You need to verify first if the problem is the speakers itself or your default audio device is not properly configured you need to go to control panel and select sound. Under the playback tab you need to select the speakers at the default device.
The Speaker of your laptop has a problem. You need to check the connection or it could be the speaker was dusty due to not functioning. Try to clean the speaker of your laptop but if the problem are not solve you need to replace the speaker for that laptop.
On acer laptop you have already speakers. but you want to connect external speakers then please find that three conector in your laptop and connect you external speakers on one of them. please try each connector and you are able to connect external speaker.
First, make sure you have a webcam with a microphone, and run any test software the webcam came with to check and make sure it is *supposed* to work. Next, open SOUND PROPERTIES through the CONTROL PANEL and then from the menu go to ADVANCED and RECORDING and OKAY, to bring up a volume array that includes the control MICROPHONE. Then, dig around to make sure MICROPHONE is the input being selected for amplification, and try ADVANCED on MICROPHONE and turn on BOOST if it has this control. You can test whether all of this worked by opening SOUND RECORDER from ACCESSORIES and making a short recording of yourself cursing the machine and everyone who designs them. If it plays back normally, try your web camera again. If it still has no sound, the problem is in the settings of the web camera itself. Open whatever software it came with and check setting like MUTE and MICROPHONE VOLUME are set correctly.
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.
