I have had it for a while and have ugraded the Ram and put Bluetooth into it. Now Im wanting the sound to be better. Just a higher output so it louder. Is there anyway of doing this. New sound card or driver of some sort?
my Aspire 3050-1905 had an terrible hijacker virus. I finally got it removed using malware bytes. Long story short, I decided to replace my hard drive and upgrade the memory. I re-installed my drivers and such using my orignal backup disc. Well everything worked fine until I turned off my computer and restarted the very next day, my touch pad and keyboard isn't responding. If I plug in external keyboard and mouse not problem, or if I start up in safe mode I can use my keyboard and touch pad with no problem.
im looking to upgrade the hdd on this laptop.. the problem is i cant seem to find anywhere as to what size of disk is a maximum allowed.

I recently upgraded the CPU in my Acer Aspire 3050-1150 to a Turion XL-56. The first bootup was a breeze, and Windows Vista Home Basic recognized the new chip no problem. Temps ended up being cooler than before the upgrade.
Later that day, comp just shut down. I tried to reboot...comp started but shut off a second or two into loading windows. Next boot attempt the on/off switch wouldn't work at all...appeared dead. I waited a few minutes, took out the AC adapter and windows booted. Next time at bootup, similar pattern, but wouldnt boot even with the AC adapter taken out. This time it booted with the battery out and AC in.
Similar pattern at every bootup...false starts, shuts down at various points, but then eventually boots up after several attempts. I have just been leaving it on, in sleep mode when not in use. I am very afraid of doing a windows update which requires a reboot, so I haven't been doing that.
I've had my Acer Aspire 3050-1905 for about 8-9 months. For the most part I've always left the a/c plugged in. Well a few days ago I decided to drain the battery and when I charged the battery it won't go past 4% charged. It works fine with the battery out and ac plugged in. But when I try to charge the battery it won't go past 4%. I used NHC and the wear level is at 0%.
First I thought it was the contact problem with the power adapter then I fixed that problem. Now it simply turns on and and does nothing. After awhile even the fan comes on properly. But the laptop has no pic nothing no hardrive movement nothing.
has anybody else had a crackling sound when playing sound example music/games. i always get it in my right speaker and how can i fix this i believe this is a software/hardware issue as whenever the sound goes off the crackling deaseses.
I have just instaled a new hard drive in a 3050 and i have installed windows xp, as it used to have vista. i have installed all the drivers for sound, card reader, graphics and all is good. But, i cannot get the wireless to work, even after instaling the drivers. it will work with a wireless dongle ok and go online.
I have looked everywhere and even found some SATA drivers that worked for other Acer SATA laptops, but not the 3050. I looked at other posts for the 3050 on this forum which helped me get other drivers, but not the SATA drivers.
I recently picked up a 3680, upgraded to a 320GB hard drive and switched to xp from Vista. Runs great but the speakers sound like they are down in a well literally. Could it be the drivers or do I need to replace the speakers? Anyone else have this problem? The reason I believe the speakers are ok is when I use headphones it sounds the same.
i just downgraded my new acer aspire 5315 from vista to XP, however now i am getting no sounds output at all just beeps! I have installed the Realtek HD Audio driver and removed it a number of times but no sound at any time..
I recently bought the Acer Aspire E1-432. It runs Windows 8.1. When I use HDMI to watch movies on my TV, the sound is not played by the TV but by the notebook. I looked on the internet for solutions for this problem and encountered two recurring possibilities. ¬† 1) Go to sound manager, show disabled devices and select the HDMI as main audio output. ¬† When I go to sound manager and try the above solution, I can not select anything but the default audio. It does not matter if I plugged in the HDMI cable or not nor does it work to select the HDMI source on the TV. The option does not appear in sound manager. ¬† 2) Update the HD realtek audio driver.¬† ¬† I tried removing the driver and letting the notebook update the driver itself. Again it did not work. Secondly, I downloaded the newest version of the HD Realtek Audio Driver I could find (188.8.131.5227) and installed over the old version. Again, this did not work. ¬† Any solution, applicable on this type of laptop, that might do the job? ¬† By the way, chromecast works fine, using the same HDMI port. The cable works as well, for a different laptop of mine is able to produce audio with the exact same cable and same HDMI port.
I therefore have felt the need to come back, because I now now have a new problem (well its actually been around for a good few months). This problem is also a buzzing noise, but this time from the speakers and in particular, what sounds like the subwoofer. They randomly start making a crackling/buzzing/distorted static sound at random intervals when listening to music or videos or when using Skype, etc.
I've had this problem for a while and it hasn't bothered me as normally going to 'Acer eAudio Management' and simply swapping to '5.1 Output' and then back to 'Built in Speakers' solved the problem, albeit temporarily. Its been more of an annoyance than anything.
However, on Tuesday (2 days ago) I got my copy of Windows 7 through the post to replace my Vista installation. 7 is fantastic it really is, but since I have installed it all hell has broken lose with my speakers. The buzzing noise is now much more frequent, particualry when simply opening something such as Skype or Windows Media Player, whilst listening to iTunes. Swapping between the '5.1' and 'built in speakers' does stop the buzzing, but now, it comes back almost instantly.....................
Aspire 7520G, Realtek audio installed, Logitech Z-10 USB speakers and Steelseries Siberia Neckband Headset with additional sound card (see pic).
So. When I switch off winamp, plug out speakers and plug-in my headset - its not working! The most interesting thing is when I just plug-in in the headset without sound card (just directly to the note) - it works!
I dont know why, but earlier it was working properly with this external sound regulator. And now not.
I suppose, it might be because of USB/analog switching or something similar, but I dont know..

after that how do i make it output sound through the hdmi to his tv
Acer Aspire 7720 I've got. Basically it has both the common boot-up freeze and crackly/distorted sound problems that appear to be common. I understand that the best, albeit riskiest, way to solve these is to flash the bios to a more recent version, which I am prepared to do.
However - the bios upgrades are not available from Acer's own support site, and I don't know where else I can find them, and I have tried.... Is there anyone who can help me locate them? The problems with this laptop are driving me spare, and I really can't afford another, or even another motherboard, just yet.
It worked yesterday but as of this morning no sound. The Realtek highDef sound device has the current driver and is identified as operational by the Win 8.1 device manager, but no sound comes out from any source. Rolling back the driver to an earlier version did result in a pulse of static during the changeover but still no output. ¬† As side note the Devices and Printers button is no longer working in Classic Shell.
I had tried that already, sadly still stale results with no change. Tomorrow I'm planning on buying different HDMI cables to see if it's a hardware issue, I don't want to take my computer in if it's happening to all three (I read somewhere that it may be the cord itself) .....
Right I have a picture on my panasonic TV but no sound through HDMI i've installed different drivers countless times and i cant see any HDMI option in playback devices. ¬† am i thick and loading the wrong drivers or is this just another problem with this laptop? ¬† like a mouse that zips all over the screen whenever you try and move the mouse right it goes left.... ¬† win 8.1
I have an Aspire 6930G and I used Vista 32bit for some time without any problems but I decided to try Windows 7 64bit and everything went fine except the sound. I downloaded the drivers for this version of windows straight from the Acer site (Realtek version 184.108.40.20688) and the sound is fine almost every time but sometimes it goes all weird and starts making a lot of noise. I've tried to delete all the sound drivers from device manager and installing them again and it happens just the same thing after a while.
I bought my Aspire notebook a few weeks ago and after messing around with Vista I decided to replace Vista with XP. But since then I can't get the sound working the way it did before I formated. I tryed everything including driver replacement, update, and even installing the Vista HD 889 sound drivers but still nothing. Everytime I ran a sound file only the left front and back speakers are working 100% the rest work roughly around 20%.
i recently bought the notebook, after a month it was fine nothing went wrong, then in the pass couple weeks i've notice that a "crackling" sound comes on when i play music, this also happens when my headphones are plugged in. Strangely enough the crackling sound only happens when my charger is unplug, when i put the charger in, the crackling sound stops. Is there a way to fix this?
