Question about Acer Aspire L310 - Core 2 Duo E6300 1.86 GHz (S6479432) PC Desktop

1 Answer

My computer has no sound- L310

I have just bought this computer about 1 or 2 months ago. It has been fine the first few times I used it. The computer had sound normally e.g. when I played games or when a message popped up at the bottom right hand side of the screen. However for the past few times I used the computer, I realised that it does not produce any sound anymore. Even when I played music, there were no sound although the Windows Media Player showed that the music was being played. I looked into the troubleshooting manual and checked the whether the sound card was faulty but it showed to be working properly. In addition, I checked the connections to the CPU of the speakers and even tried plugging off the speakers but the result was still the same. All in all, the computer has no sound.

    Same problem. Please tell me exactly where the two ends are to plug in to the tower. I have tried everything, including taking the speakers back for a replacement. Should i go into the computer and check something.

    I have this problem with my Aspire M5100. I can plug in headphones and they work. I tried different speakers, but they don't work either. I went to the sound screen and it says there are speakers plugged in and they are working, but alas no sound. The speakers worked fine up until about 2-3 weeks ago. I don't get it. I have tried everything I can think of. I even uninstalled the sound driver and restarted the computer, but they still don't work.

If windows XP (i think for vista is pretty similar)check in "control panel" > "sounds and audio devices" - just to check the sound is not muted or turned right down. Check the speakers on another PC, and check your PC with other speakers / headphones to see if it sheds any light on the problem. Update or reinstall the most updated drivers for the soundcard, this may solve the problem, you can get them from this link; Hope this helps :)

I bought this Acer aspire 7535g laptop off of my mum's friend which was in great condition when I bought it. The sound was perfect. Every driver was up-to-date. However now... 8 months on, the sound...

You can try booting a live linux CD or thumbdrive and see if that gives you sound. That will give you an idea if it's Windows or a hardware problem. If it's a windows problem try uninstalling and reinstalling your drivers. If that doesn't work keep searching around or just try a fresh install of windows.

I bought this computer a couple of months ago and have used it about 3 times. When I turned it on, there was no power and it was fully charged before I went offline the last time. Now my battery icon...

Then, it should be FULLY covered under WARRANTY, either from the store from where you bought it, or from ACER.

It's probably 100% fine; it's your laptop that is the problem.

Exercise the WARRANTY to get the laptop repaired/replaced, at NO COST to you.

I had the same problem with my two LCM-19W4 monitors. Both failed within two months of each other. Radio Shack stocks 220uF 35V capacitors that work fine for this. You have to pay $1.49 ea though.
