What audio plug (#1 or #2 in the picture) does my Aspire One A0725 laptop need to feed stereo audio out and mono audio in (or is it also stereo in). See the picture at the following Dropbox link [URL] ....
I recently received this acer laptop as a gift. Right from the first time I started it I noticed issues with the sound. With any audio that played there were crackling noises.The crackling got worse and worse so I Decided to restart the laptop and then the sound stopped working altogether.I tried reinstalling the Realtek HD audio drivers that came with the laptop but that didn't work and I still got a "No Audio Output Device is Installed" message in the bottom corner.
I tried reinstalling the drivers AGAIN, and the sound worked. All seemed well until I woke up the next day with no sound yet again.I then tried downloading new drivers from the realtek website, even these drivers didn't work. The only solution to the problem seemed to be basically uninstalling and reinstalling the realtek drivers until they worked, and even then, the sound would still crackle horrendously.After getting fed up with this issue I tried to refresh windows, and even this didn't work.I have tried everything I can think of .....
I've been Windows 7 now for quite a while and it's been great apart from the little brightness setting bug. There's also the issue of having no surround sound output via HDMI.
When I was running Vista using the stock audio/video drivers I've had no issues getting the HDMI (to my surround sound reciever via HDMI) to output surround sound, it just worked for whatever media I played.
Since switching to Windows 7, I've been unable to get any surround sound out at all, It's only outputting stereo. I've tried the various Realtek drivers and have had no luck, they don't even allow me to use HDMI sound output when the cable is connected!
Anyone else have this problem? or found a solution?
I'm running RC1 x86 on a Vaio Z (VGN-Z90S - original Jap. model). I've also tried it with earlier versions of 7 with no go, and I'm hesitant to try the RTM version. I kinda want to wait for another reformat until I get my key.
Anyone have surround on their Z through HDMI? (please let me know, what drivers/OS you're running.)
Similar to a post about the T530 I used to record streaming audio (internet radio, youtube, playback etc.) with Snagit on my old computer, now on new W530 I cannot find "line out, mono out, wave out," devices to record from, only "microphone".
On the Lenovo W530 using Windows 8 Pro I followed the follwoing steps posted elsewhere for the T530:
Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Recording ... right-click to check Show Disabled Devices, then choose Stereo Mix as Default (may also want to right-click on Stereo Mix and double-check Properties: make sure Listen level is not at zero)
After showing disabled devices on the sound > recording tab the tab still shows only one device, the "Microphone".
If it is possible how on Windows 8 or the W530 (and possibly other models) do we get the line out / mix out / mono out / whatever they call it for the sound that comes out of the computer?
I used to record streaming audio (internet radio, youtube, playback etc.) with Audacity on my old T43; now on new T530 no matter how I configure Realtek sound and Audacity I cannot.On the T43 I recorded using "SoundMAX Digital Audio: Wave out". Wit other soundcards it could be "Stereo mix". I get no option of choosing either Wave out or Stereo mix in Audacity.Below is an extract of Audacity WIKI page: URL....According to this information the issue might be Lenovo disabling the possibility of direct recording???
"Sometimes "Stereo Mix" can only be made to work by using the control panel supplied by the sound card manufacturer - this is often reported with RealTek inbuilt sound devices. Try launching the sound device control panel from the Windows Control Panel or the system tray (by the clock). If you see a volume control for Stereo Mix, try clicking to select it. Confusingly, some RealTek devices "select" an input by muting all but one, so in this case, mute everything except stereo mix. If you don't see Stereo Mix, click the wrench icon and enable Stereo Mix in the dialogue that pops up.
In some RealTek versions the option to check is "Enabled recording multi-streaming". You should now see a volume control for Stereo Mix. Remember to select or unmute it as above. Be aware that on some machines, the "Stereo Mix" option will never work because it is disabled internally by the driver settings due to copyright concerns. This is a known issue with Lenovo Thinkpad laptops, but sometimes editing the driver files can enable stereo mix."
type of connector needed for digital audio? I have not been able to confirm that my Acer 7720-6395 NB has a dual digital connection. The manual calls the jack a S/PDIF but looks like and allows a stereo plug to work. Talking to the folks at the Sony store claims that the jack could be a dual connector and would work with a headphone or a optical connection. Would love to watch a blue ray movie with 5.1 sound......
PROBLEM: Six Months Ago, the Sound Device Stopped Working, I get the following message (No Audio Output Device is installed): It is as if NO audio device is installed on the motherboard.
Here's the catch: Sometimes when I START my computer the Device Works, and Sometimes It doesn't. If I restart the computer like 20-30 consecutive times (IF I'M LUCKY) chances that in one of these restarts the device MAY Work. Sometimes i go weeks without Audio.
Here are *some* things I've Tried: 1) Format the System:
Different OSs I've tried: Windows XP Home/Pro, Vista, 7 and Linux.
The expirience the same problem with all these OSs. So It's not an OS thing............
I had vista installed on my laptop, Acer 6920, (first OS) and it was direct from factory so everything worked fine. I then installed ubuntu and everything still worked fine. I then deinstalled both of those to put on windows 7 RC where all my hardware was working perfectly (minus the fingerprint reader but i honestly couldnt care about that thing) so my computer eventually got pretty bogged down with crap to the point where boot was about 30 minutes. during this whole time my sound seemed to work, but near the end windows stopped finding any internal sound related hardware (the speakers and the mic). For other reasons i did a clean reformat (3 times) and reinstalled 7 Professional 32 bit and when i booted i downloaded all the drivers and everything seemed to install correctly, but when i rebooted the sound still didnt work nor did the mic. the exact error message windows is giving me is "No Audio Output Device found" however when i plug in a headset or a bluetooth adapter + headphones there is audio and it works perfectly. I really need sound to work as some programs crash if they dont detect a sound output and also for monitoring audio recordings.
I have tried installing all of Realtek's drivers. Literally all of them. None of them worked what so ever despite clean installs and deinstalls.
I now am running 64bit and ive almost given up on this problem. I bearly saved this computer and i dont wanna have to buy a new because of sucha stupid issue like this. More info:
Under the hardware manager in windows there is no tree for sound devices. there was an unknown component which i put forceware on as i thought it was the sound device but no go.

I have no audio. It has been previously working, but suddenly stopped. On the small speaker icon there is a red cross indicating "No Audio Output Device is enabled" When I log on to the computer i get a window that says "CWindowsSystem32AUDIOSES.DLL is not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error."
I have attempted to Troubleshoot but unable to get any sound. I have updated the Audio driver, but it is the up to date driver.

I have an Aspre 5742 which is a couple of years old now. It is running Windows 7. I have been trying to output the display to my TV but it is not working.
When using the HDMI connector there is no output whatsoever. I have followed the suggestions on the Acer website about detecting connected monitors but this does not detect my TV ...
When using the VGA output the deTect function detects the presence of the TV but the TV does not detect the computer.
I have connected another computer to the same TV using the same cables (HDMI and VGA) and everything works just fine.
I have updated the video drivers on the Acer but there is no change.
A few months ago we had to change the hard disk as the original packed in. I put in the same model disc as I took out and reloaded tyhe software from the rescue disc. Prior to this the HDMI worked perfectly.
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 own an Acer Aspire R7-572G which has a combined 4-pin 3.5mm headset jack.
I would like to use a normal microphone with an 3.5mm connector. The microphone did not work by directly plugging the connector into the socket, therefore I bought an adapter which splits the 4-pin output into speaker & microphone sockets.
Now the microphone does work properly, however, unless I am connecting external speakers I am not able to use the internal notebook speakers. (maybe because the notebook assumes that a headset is plugged in)
>>> Is there a way to use my external microphone and the internal notebook speakers?
One more thing to mention: If I plug in the cable, a popup on the notebook appears asking which device I just plugged in. Sadly my only three options are "headphones", "speaker output" or "headset". NO MICROPHONE OPTION !!!
Aspire S3. The PC is perfectly fine, except the fact the the screen is broken. It already broke twice (just by opening...), so we are not spending money on a third one.So, what I want to do is to connect it to an external monitor through HDMI (and possibly remove the broken screen, since it has no use). I can do it in Windows, but not outside Windows (BIOS) and I'd like install Windows 8.1 or 10. So my question is: can I force output from boot into HDMI? If so how, if not, what alternatives do I have to install a new version of Windows without spending a small fortune?
I have an Acer as5570-2609 aspire laptop that will not boot up. It is like new, hardly been used. When I power it up, the fan comes on for about 3 or 4 seconds, and the hdd light flashes three times in a row, then waits a second or two, the flashes three times again, then goes black. The dvd drive ejects and will spin up a disc, but thats it. I tried swapping in a known good hard drive and nothing helps. I also tried re-seating a few of the easily accessible modules, such as the ram and wireless. I still have not seen a single flicker of the LCD screen. No beeps, nothing...
My volume icon in the system try reads "No audio output device is installed." The audio device is not even recognized in the device manager (i.e. there is no yellow exclamation point or conflicted device to update a driver to). The system simply does not recognize the fact that a sound device exists.
I have tried many, many things: Fresh install (as per the sticky-guide) of Windows Vista x64 Home PremiumFresh recovery from system recovery partitionTried all versions of the drivers from the HP support page (Realtek and Conexant) --- I believe I have conexant, though.Safe mode driver installsDriver installs on a driver signing rebootPutting the computer into hibernate, then resuming (odd, I know.. I heard it worked sometiems).Made sure "Windows Audio" service is enabled in Administrative ToolsServicesInstalled Windows XP drivers for "Microsoft High Definition Audio controller"Flashed BIOS to most recent version F.32Updated chispet drivers to most recent nForce availableeInstalled Vista SP2 I'm sure there must be one or two more things that I've tried and just can't remember. I am running Windows Vista x64 Home Premium with SP1.
I have an HP DV6700 Laptop, and I recently installed Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) (The full version from MSDN academic alliance, not the release candidate). A few days afterward, I had an issue where my speaker icon has a red "x" over it, and when I hover over it it says "no audio output device is installed". The funny thing is that the speakers worked after windows update installed an update, then they stopped a few days later, and I cannot for the life of me get the speakers to work again!
I can silence the noise lowering volume on the Stereo Mix High Definition Audio Codec. However, my AMD HDMI Output is greyed out and static, or as I understand from other complainers; NOT PLUGGED IN. What can I do to solve this problem. It is a problem for when I open the Stereo Mix High Depfinition Audio Codec, a shrieking noise leaves me depth, and it eats the volume all up.

I have no sound, although everything tests fine and volume is changing. No sound from speakers or output to headphones. I have tried all invetigations, everything is OK including Windows Audio, set to automatic.
HP Envy 15 Product Number A9R05PA#ABG running Windows 7 64 bit.
Also, while sitting in its usual well ventilated space it has gone in to thermal shutdown a few times when I wandered off, and froze once on startup. I am now backing up everything ...
Suddenly my computer has no sound what so ever. It doesnt work when I plug in headphones, either. When I hold the mouse over the sound icon in the bottom right corner of the screen it says, "No Audio Output Device is Enabled."
I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1. My computer's product number is XZ046UA#ABA.
Do I need to install a new driver, or something else?
I'm not sure what happened as the babysitter was on my computer while I was gone...when I went to turn on my Acer, this is the message I got...
NTLDR is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart I did that and once again got the same message. I tried using the eRecovery (alt+f10) and gave me the options to restore using disk or to factory settings. I chose the factory settings as this computer did not come with any discs. It went 53% through the restore program and then it stopped leaving me the message... Restore failed! Reason:0x0000006
