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 aspire 1690, my problem is when I start it up the screen shows what I can only describe as looking through obscure glass with letters and numbers randomly placed all over.When I start in safe mode I can just make out enough to browse desktop but in normal mode its bluescreen and dumping to memory.I know everything is working in the backround as I can browse my computer etc. Cant make enough out after pressing alt>f10 to perform a restore from disk. checked the fan is working thinking it might be overheating but this is working fine.
My old Aspire 1690WLMi runs Windows 7, but can`t run Aero cause it has an integrated graphics card. Hard drive space is super tight since it`s only 80gb. Thinking of getting a new laptop around $1000, but also considering just getting a new 320gb hard drive for $100. What do you think i should do - new laptop or new hard drive.
2 years later and still no x64 vista audio driver for dv8130. I have looked all over the place for some kind of work around, I find lots of tips, and drivers for different models nothing WORKS. the closest I get it during the install it will say media device not found for driver. I dont even know what chipset the sound card is, for vista x32 it has a driver it just says conexant ac-link
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 downgraded my Acer 6920g from Vista to XP with mixed success...the biggest problem is the sound...there isn't any. Windows XP can't/won't detect the sound card (i think it's Realtek ALC 889), I've downloaded the driver several times, but it still doesn't work.
In the GUIDE [Clean Install Guide (works for 32-bit or 64-bit) there is said, that I need to download Intel Chipset Driver/INF Update Utility and Turbo Memory Driver from provided links, but in my manufacturer's page [Acer 8930G] I have Intel_AHCI_v184.108.40.2062 and Intel_Robson_1.6_v220.127.116.114.
The question is: - do I install all four of them? - do I install the first two? - do I install the second two?
5930g, every time I but a dvd or cd in my dvd driver it cant be read by the vista.., I just hear sounds in the driver and got nothing at all!
after I restart for 2 or 3 times it works and the vista does recognize it.., I got really sick of this.., so what should i do.., should I install xp or what.., even if that was the solution I need a dvd rw driver to burn a bootable cd with the sata drives..,
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.
I downgraded from win 8 to win 7 with a clean install and although I have the sound workling I cant find the correct driver in other forum posts to get beats audio installed. Link to the correct download :
Also I would like to get the on screen volume indicator back.
I've installed win7 64bit sp1 operating system on my hp r033tx notebook pc.But the DTS audio control panel is n't showing even I've downloaded the driver software from HP official website for windows7 64bits os.
1. The damn CPU whining? I know everyone has it. Dell said last time I called that they're working on some way to fix it. The new A09 Bios didn't seem to do anything for me, or anyone else apparently according to dell's support forum. What's up with that?
2. My laptop wobbles on the top right and bottom left corners. it only wobbles if I use my 6cell batt, and it doesn't wobble w/ the 9 Cell. So does that mean the 6cell's rubber feet thing on the top right corner isn't high enough? Can dell fix that?
3. The "increase volume" media button thing isn't as responsive as the other ones. i have to press really hard to get it to respond. all the other ones i just tap it lightly, and it works.
Here's some questions that I know Dell has no clue what to do with:
4. I'm currently using Vista Ultimate on this only because I couldn't get my bluetooth driver and my sigmatel audio driver to work properly on XP. since dell hasn't released a xp bluetooth driver, i used WIDCOMM 5.1 stack, and the bluetooth headset and stereo headset drivers would disable the sigmatel drivers. really annoying. cmd51229 says he's gotten it to work:..........................
I Bought and Xp Disk but, It doesnt detect my harddrive (Classic Sata Problem)
So I hear there are two ways to get around this...
1.)Change AHCI in Bios, which doesnt work for me because my laptop doesnt seem to have this Option in Bios, so thats out...
2.) And Slipstreaming which I have found drivers that people have refferred to other people but I dont quite understand how they work...(The tutorial I was reading and the drivers I downloaded didnt add up)
So I was hoping someone could give me specific instructions( for my model) for either of these methods to install Xp (Spent lot of cash on the disk dont want it go to to waste)
is thare anyway to install XP Pro on this? It comes with Vista, but I have a "legacy" NURBS (Rhino 3.0) program that runs much better on XP Pro. Or, is there anyone out there who've had luck dropping Vista for XP on a newer Aspire?
I bought an Aspire 4730Z, and I plan on maxing out the RAM at 4Gigs soon. Problem is, it came with Vista 32 bit. Does anyone know if Acer sells 64 bit recovery DVDs? The "order recovery discs" page on their website does not mention whether these are just 32 bit, or may include 64 bit.
I sent Acer and e-mail today but not have heard back yet. They seem to provide 64 bit drivers, so it would make sense if they gave you a way to upgrade the OS.
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.
