Acer Aspire One A0725 :: Stereo Audio Out And Mono Audio In
Sep 14, 2014
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] ....
my Acer's been having trouble playing audio and keeping time. The clock problem's simple: ever since I got it it's lost time at a variable rate, averaging at probably around a minute every hour. Nothing I've done has managed to fix this, except in the short-term by updating it to Internet time.
More complicated have been the audio issues. These vary in severity and come and go to an extent, and I have had some success fixing them. Basically, since I got the computer, audio's been at least slightly choppy while playing videos over a period of time. Generally just playing audio files themselves work fine (unless something resource heavy going on in the background), and bizarrely playing videos through my browser (say on YouTube) has always been perfect, regardless of site, length or quality of video. But when it comes to playing anything from the hard drive regardless of whether it's WMP or VLC and regardless of bit rate, sooner or later the audio screws up. This can be either to the extent that it'll glitch every couple of seconds, that I'll lose sync with the video slightly, or loss of sound entirely. In fact, the first time I downloaded a video podcast on iTunes I was left wondering why the opening scene was so eerily silent for so long!
Now initially I was able to fix this by updating the BIOS to v1.45 and after that pretty much everything was good. It would still glitch occasionally on HD movies, and certainly still didn't like too much going on in the background, but generally nothing I couldn't handle. At least until now, when all the same problems have come back to haunt me worse than ever. I tried going on to v1.43, but no dice. And now I'm back on v1.45 in the vain hope that re-installing it might make some difference. But alas. I've looked at performance in task manager and it's ticking along at about 16% CPU usage, so nothing untoward there either. It seems like a BIOS problem because updating the BIOS fixed it, but now it's screwing up again under that same BIOS and with nothing untoward going on in the background or hitting the CPU too hard I'm totally stumped.
Basically, is there anything else I might try software wise, or is it time to give Acer a call while I'm still in warranty?
When I plug the computer into my Philips HDTV via the HDMI cable (a cable I know is perfectly good and undamaged), the video pops right up onto the TV. The edges are cut off but I know why that is.
The audio is another matter. The TV says it doesn't have any audio coming in, at all. So I check the Sound applet under Control Panel, to see what it's got to say. Under Sound, I see three devices:
Speakers - RealTek High Definition Audio (this is the computer's built-in speaker) NVIDIA HDMI Out - NVIDIA High Definition Audio Realtek Digital Output - Realtek High Definition Audio
The default is the speakers, and when I plug in the HDMI cable the computer automatically switches to the nVidia HDMI out. When I play something out (I've tried both Winamp and Windows Media Player), the VU meter next to the selected device bounces up and down as if there's sound playing. Yet, despite the volume being near maximum on the TV, there's no sound.
I've tried switching from the nVidia option to the RealTek option. I've tried restarting. I've tried updating the drivers to all the current versions. Nothing works. This is a Windows 7 Ultimate x64 installation.
My Acer Aspire 5542g laptop has Realtek Digital Output as well as default Speakers.
i always listen to my music on my laptop through headphones and i want to use the Digital Audio feature for better sound, i have read other threads on this feature in the forum but they have always mentioned the TOSLink connected to some sort of amp or external speakers. my question is can i use the TOSLink adapter to get digital sound through my headphones?
I am wondering the Realtek audio driver provided in the acer webpage can be used in aspire 1690 as the sound card is Conexant. Anyone can get the sound card works in windows vista. I tried but it failed.
I have a problem with the audio. I reinstal the O.S. because my laptop was working slow, and because the sound did not work properly. Everything affter instalation works fine, just the audio doen't work properly, it sounds...hesitating
I thought the problem was the cpu temperatures... 60ļ-65ļ idle, and just open a few windows it reachs at 75ļ-80ļ, and stay in this temps.
Notebook Hardware Control, lets make undervolting. So I make some test... and just when the cpu loads at 100% the audio works properly, clean and perfect. If cpu loads under 80% the audio sounds... but defective, not clean...
I have an Aspire¬†V5-571G... I updated to Windows 8.1 (64bit) a few days ago. ¬† Since the update, when playing audio on iTunes (was 11.3 but now updated to 11.4 both post win 8.1 anyway)/Windows Media Player and on YouTube & other sites, audio has stopped working completely or become extremely distorted. Sometimes it works fine but¬†never for extended periods of time. I'm not sure what triggers the distortion and silence but it has ONLY been happening since the 8.1 update. ¬† I updated the RealTek sound drivers with¬†the driver for my model from the Acer website and it has not improved the situation. I've been looking around for a solution / cause of the problem and the only questionable driver I have is this: There's no update¬†for this on the Acer site r.e. my model and the Windows online update thing cannot find an update either. ¬† If it's not possible to fix this via updating or tweaking 8.1, is it possible to do a system restore back to Win 8 without removing my files and if so how?
I have recently upgraded to windows 8.1 on my Acer Aspire and unfortunately since then, Dolby Advanced Audio V2 refuses to work. I have uninstalled my audio drivers, and re-installed with the latest versions, I have uninstalled DAAV2 and re-installed, and it still does not work. I'm not really sure where to go from here. It launches properly and you can turn it on and off, but ultimately, it does not show any difference between having it on anymore or off. As well as the fact that the little panel you open where it shows the bars while you play music, doesn't move at all. I use my Acer Aspire mainly for music and youtube videos and the like, so this is rather important to me.
There's plenty of advice online and Utube about digitizing audiocassettes with a laptop, a patchcord and a piece of software, such as Audacity. I have tried this with a Sony Walkman cassette player but cannot get Audacity to "hear" the cassette's output. I have tried with another software also...same non-result. ¬† The Aspire only has the headphone jack to receive a signal. Am I failing to set a parameter on the software...or on my Windows 8.1 machine, to be able to¬† do this, or am I attempting the impossible? The Utube gurus make it seem¬†so simple!
My Windows 7 Acer Aspire 5552 laptop 's display brightness has lessened and I can not even open Power Options in Control Panel. When I connect another monitor to my Acer Aspire the brightness is just fine. Audio service is not running either. What should I do?
I've been working on this issue on my own for about a week now. I'm not entirely sure how to start explaining, so I'll just do a rundown of the noticable issues. ¬† Hovering over the speaker icon gives me the text, "No speakers or headphones are plugged in." I use the internal speakers, and I always have my headphones plugged in. Audio playback troubleshooting doesnt give me anything (though at one point during my progress, it said that my audio device was disabled.)¬† ¬† Device management has been confusing at best. I can't seem to get the Realtek W8.1 drivers to properly download, even after finding the Acer-support driver.
I have a problem with my laptop and it's spdif optic output. I want to connect it to my hi-fi but I am having trouble with enabling digital output. I just don't know how to do it
In my Realtek Mixer there are options only for analog outputs - no digital options at all. I use now the newest drivers, 1.70 or 1.77 - nothing. I've tried older versions, something like 1.30 and then spdif flashed red colour and I thought that it will be OK, but nope. Still no sound and no digital options in Realtek's mixer. On these new drivers (1.7x) it doesen't ever light up.
Someone here said that one cannot acutally see the LED inside blinking, well... I can see it As I told before on older drivers it's "on" all the time - althou no sound.
In the other topics I've read that one has to change default output to digital output - I see no such option, if I am just blind and retarded then someone posting a screenshot would be nice
I have an Aspire 5517 running Windows 7.¬†When on battery power, the computer will not go to sleep if it is playing any audio or video file through the speakers. Pause the stream and the computer will sleep as normal on power saver options, but if I leave it playing on battery power computer will not sleep or hibernate. When battery reaches critical level computer will not shut down and I have to restart windows later. This seems like a problem with a driver.
I ordered new E6500 that came with Vista on it and I wiped that and have installed XP Pro SP2 on the machine.¬† I have followed the guide on this page and installed everything in the correct order.¬† The only thing that didn't install was the dial-up modem.¬† It errored out and said "No MODEM device was found".¬† Typically on the Latitude laptops I seem to remember installing the modem driver and it taking care of this entry in the device manager, but not this time. ¬† There is a dial-up modem on the laptop and this is the only device that looks to not be installed.¬† There is no webcam, WAN modem, or anything else like that. ¬† Has problem with installing XP onto a E6500?¬† Is the installer for the modem driver just bad or is there possibly something else going on.
The sound on my HP Pavilion G6-1a19wm is not working.¬†¬† Sound "does" work when using the audio jack with external speakers. I have tried uninstalling the driver, updating the driver, microsoft fix-it, and troublshooting steps.¬† audio device shows in device manager and is supposedly working properly,¬† mute is "not' enabled.¬† visually all audio related things suggest that the audio is fine and troubleshooting finds no problems..¬†
I have HP envy 15 j002er laptop. Originally I got it with Windows 8 but then I changed operation system to Windows 7 Pofessional (64-bit).I can`t install IDT high definition audio codec on it. I guess that is the reason why I don`t have and I can`t use Beats Audio interface on my laptop (only speakers are working). There are no audio drivers for Windows 7 available for download on HP website. When I`m cheking for driver updates via HP support, it proposes me only updates for Chipset, Graphics, Network, etc.And no Audio Driver..How can I solve it and install IDT high definition audio codec?
I have a hp pavilion 15-e078ea, core¬†i5 processor,¬†2.6ghz, 8gb ram,¬†windows 8.1 64bit.... ¬† After updating windows to 8.1 the dts audio control panel will not allow me to use audio enhancements or the graphic equalizer.... ¬† I have looked on hp support and done all driver updates and it is still not working.... ¬† I am assuming this is a software issue. will there be an update?
Yesterday I uninstalled¬†IDT Audio driver by mistake. Now my NB doesn't have any sound. Where can I download the IDT audio installer for my NB?¬† ¬† Version that I use is showing as Windows 7¬†64 Home Prem OA. ¬† Product Number: B5A09UA#ABA Model Name: HP Pavilion g6-2040nr Notebook PC
HP Pavilion dv6-7030tx Entertainment Notebook PC Windows 7 Intel i7-3610QM CPU @2.3GHz 8Gb Ram ¬† 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 recently bought a HP ENVY TouchSmart 15-j009wm which initially had windows 8, I installed a new O. S. Windows 8.1 64 bit and lost the driver pack for beats audio, I have been searching online for a download but cant seem to get a link to download.
