Acer Aspire 7 :: Has No Sound Output From Any Source
Sep 11, 2014
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 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 have an Acer Aspire 5520-5912 laptop. It has a AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core Proccessor Running at 1.9 ghz. if Anyone Knows, please tell me, What is the PLL For this chipset? I want to overclock the proccesor to about 2.0 or even 2.1, no higher so i dont burn the chipset. Also if anyone else has any advice for Aspire 5520 Laptop's please tell me.
id like to know what do you think the estimated FPS for Counterstrike Source would be on this laptop.
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.
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 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...
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'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.)
My U330P is running Windows 7 with the latest drivers for both the Intel HD video module and the Realtek audio chip. I would like to connect my machine to a TV via HDMI and have it both act both as the display as well as the audio playback device (i.e. TV speakers should blare, not the ones in my Ideapad).
The thing is, I don't have said TV yet and if what I want to do is not possible, I will not bother buying it. I already did look around in Control Panel -> Sound -> Playback in order to find out whether there's an option to set the HDMI port as a playback device but found nothing. I also have the playback devices menu display disconnected and deactivated devices, but the only thing showing is the built-in stereo speakers. The listings in my device manager don't suggest something like a "digital sound whatnot" either.
So in general whether the audio signal can be rerouted to the HDMI output connector on a U330P.
I have a dv7-7270ca notebook and since a restart due to windows 8 updates I now have a red x on the speaker icon. I installed the HP driver for this model but it has an error in device manager that says:
Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)
I did run an audio test using the shut down-F2 and passed and could hear the sounds in the test.
Actually it happend about 2 months ago. The sound coming out of the speaker as well as the sound when I was using a headphone was just not right, barely any low frequency sound. In the beginning I can fix this by reinstalling the audio driver. Then after a week or so the same problem would occur again, and I had to reinstall the driver. After several times, reinstalling the audio driver cannot solve the problem anymore. Besides if I plug in the headphone after I muted the laptop, it should unmute automatically right? Well that does not happen and it's still muted.
I bought a Roline DP to HDMI cable hoping to be able to watch HD content in my livingroom and not having to plug an extra audio cable as DP should carry sound too.
When I do the same as on the youtube video, I get the following settings in the control panels: [URL] ....
But there's no sound coming out of the TV. I've tried it on my SyncMaster PC/TV Screen and on my Samsung TV in the living room. On the TV in the living room, the windows audio manager shows the device, but it cannot be selected as show above. It stays grey.
I've got a T420s with discrete nVidia Optimus graphics (Quadro NVS4200M). Driver version is 184.108.40.206 for nVidia HD-Audio and 220.127.116.1196 for NVS 4200M. This information comes from the device manager. I installed my system from scratch and used ThinkVantage System Update 4.
Where the problem comes from? I could only imagine that the cable isn't capable of carrying audio, but that seems rather illogic, does it?
With my PC I can record streamed audio via Audacity. However I can only see the microphone as an input source for I/O inputs. I have looked at all settings and cannot find anything relevant. It seems you cannot also run the Realtek control panel presumably this is a Acer configuration.
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 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?
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 (18.104.22.16827) 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.
