Acer Aspire 3662 laptop

The family have 2 of these laptops and both experiencing sound problems. They have been reset back 2x which solves problem but removes all additional information/programmes gathered along the way. IS THERE A SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD TO RESOLVE THIS PROBLEM. Laptops now out of warranty and sick of resetting back to beginning all the time. Can you help please - this is costing me money! Many thanks.

    I know I need to take a back up but the root problem is still unresolved. WHY does this keep happening? Is there an inherent problem with the sound card or is it a software thing? There must be other ACER users who have experienced the same problem?

    Yes sound is fine once clean install done - it seems to get worse again as time goes on. I wonder if it is worth repairing? what do you think?

This is not an solution:

Use acronis true image to make a backup cd after you had installed a clean XP, all of of the needed software. Make this image every week. That's all.

    If after performing a clean install the sound is ok and in time the problem with sound appears and persists - i think is one of these:
    1. 30% Bad driver or hardware (not good compatibility), manufacturer problem;
    2. 60% Windows problem
    3. 10% Using a software that impacts with some windows components.
    That's all i think

    i said before, if it works fine at begining - you should try to find when the problem appears. I have no Acer Aspire here to try solving this. Anyway, i'll try to help you somehow. On my profile is written my icq #. I will look for some info about your Acer 3662. In a few days - contact me please.
