ACER Travelmate 5571AWXMi headset not working but laptop speaker is working

Question: ACER Travelmate 5571AWXMi headset not working but laptop speaker is working

Pls help me, when I put on the headset on the socket, the headset is not working fine. I already tried t in three different headphones. what seems to be the problem with these? at first, it is working fine but after some time, 2 weeks i think, the headphone is not working anymore. everytime I put it on the socket, windows can detect it because it says "A jack is plugged" on its tray.

please help me, do i need to update the driver? but the drivers are all installed and not corrupted or damaged.

my audio manager is Realtek HD Audio Manager with ALC 883 something on its version.

Acer notebook model no. aspire 4720z. problem is internal speakers are not working, but external speaker or headphone work well.in line with the same, I request you to provide the necessary technical details to solve the problem. thanking you in advance.

Answer:Acer laptop internal speaker not working

Typically that means the port is broken or disabled on your laptop. We know its not a driver issues because external speakers work fine. Were you having any issues with you on board speakers or did they just stop one day? Im leaning towards hardware failure.

I have a ThinkCentre A60 headset. Recently, the foam ear comforters on the headset wore off and flaked off. I used the headset without them for a while, but then I remembered I had another spare headset with cloth ear rings that I could take off and put on the A60.  So I put the foam ear comforters on the headset, and it was great for a while. I could tell that the ear rings were putting stress on the speakers, but I didn't think it would be anything bad. After about an hour, the left speaker (the one farthest from the microphone) stopped working. No sound comes out of it, at all. How do I fix this?

Recently purchased Yoga 3 Pro (Windows 8.1) from Lenovo website (2 months ago).The speaker has been working fine until yesterday. All of a sudden, the speaker stopped working, after I used the headset. Now, only headset works, and no sound can come out of the speaker. I've updated the speaker RealTek driver to a newer version 9/2014. It did not help. Does anyone have any idea on what might be the cause and how to fix it? Thanks!

I am trying to set up Skype on my Acer TravelMate 7510. I have set up everything, including sound, but cannot get the video function to work. I think it is the drivers on the Acer Omnicam software that is causing the problem and I have worked out that it is a Bison driver provider version 6.32.700.1 I do not know what this all means as I am very much a beginner in system stuff. Can anyone please help me to get the webcam working? Thank you very much - I have Windows Vista.

I have a acer travelmate 4720 laptop and wifi is not working in that. I even tried to install the drivers of it but no use.

Answer:WiFi not working in Acer Travelmate 4720

Have you got it turned on? There's a key combination - the Fn key and one of the F keys - to toggle the wireless on & off, you may need to check the manual for the actual key needed."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..." Pink Floyd

Hi all,am in need of a little help. We own an Acre Travelmate 2356XM laptop with windows XP. Has been working fine all the way through. Yesterday afternoon however the scroll pad and left/right click buttons stopped working.The laptop powers up fine, no noticeable difference in speed on turning it on. No warning screens to indicate it has found a problem. The keyboard itself works fine, all the functionality is there, all the programmes are untouched and we can still access the internet. The only fault (and it is a very inconvenient one) is that the scroll pad for the cursor and both buttons have ceased, it is as though either a soldered connection has failed isolating that area from the rest of computer or (clutching at straws here) a driver controlling these functions has failed. Have powered down and up several times with same result. There was no advance warning as though it was failing by degrees, Wednesday working fine, Thursday not. Any help gratefully accepted as it is my partner who uses the laptop and I know little about them my area is more desktop oriented, and with laptops being small and fiddly don't really want to approach with a screwdriver unless I know what I'm looking for

Answer:Acer Travelmate, scroll pads not working

Have you tried "mouse properties" in the controll panel? I havn't got an Acer but my Dell laptop has got a tab in there that adjusts the touchpad, worth a look if you havn't already tried it

Hi there, I have a strange problem with my laptop. Details are as follows:
HP NX9110 - standard specs, Windows XP SP2

The other day I was watching a vid using media player I think and the speakers were working fine. I then opened Nero 8s Soundtrack and notised that the speaker were not working. Tried media player again and still not working. Numerous reboots, removing Nero 8, reinstalling sound drivers had no effect. Notised that the headphones still work fine.

I also have a linux boot disk and the speakers work fine under linux (this points to something software related in windows).
Turned the laptop off for about a day and started back up.....speakers working fine again.

They have stoped twice since (have used Nero a few times but cant find a pattern). They did stop at one stage for an hour or so then just randomly start back up when I was having a look through processes in task manager......dont think it was due to ending one but it could have been.

The whole time the headphones work fine.

The speakers have now stoped again and I cant seem to get them working again.

Any ideas? This really has me stumped and I dont really want to reinstall windows. Is it possible that some process has picked up the speakers and not released them?
 

Answer:Laptop speaker not working, headphones do.

Bump.
Anyone got any ideas? Or know of somewhere I can ask this question?

I bought an inspiron E1505 this past july, and recently i noticed that every so often, my left speaker would just stop working. I would gently shake the laptop, or tap lightly over where the speaker is, and usually it would turn on again.

It happens randomly, sometimes when the laptop is just turned on, sometimes after its been on for hours.

I'm assuming something is loose in there, should i try to check it out myself, or leave it to a pro?
 

Answer:Left speaker on laptop not working?

Depends on your level of confidence ....if a loose connection ...it may need soldering ....but google laptop repairs ....or look at this:

Hi AML,

Try dropping into your 'Control Panel' and opening up 'Sounds and Audio Devices'. Once in there, click on the 'Audio' tab and check your 'Sound Playback - Default Device'. Just a note that before you do this, make sure your headset is plugged-in! You may be able to drop it down to 'Logitech' or similar and not have it blaring out of the speaker at the same time!

Hey
Today i just bought some ear phones, with a connected mouth piece. Problem is that my two front ports are dodgy for the microphone and headphones. So if i put the jacks from my headset into the back, i have to take out my speaker input.. Is there any way i can have the speakers in, and the headset and revert back to each without going at the back and changing them? Any help appreciated
Thanks
 

Answer:Headset not working, front ports not working

First, its possible inside your computer case, there is just a loose cable that is causing the problem with the front jacks on your computer. Check inside, right behind where the earphone jack is for a cord running to somewhere on your motherboard or Sound card.

If that dosn't work,
Do you have a CD/DVD player with a earphone jack and have you tried that?
Assuming its the port that is bad itself and not just loose, you could check in at radio shack, bestbuy, or newegg.com for a cord that splits the output. If you get lucky you might find one with a chanel select that will allow you to swap which recieves the output.
The other option, from radio shack I got a Bluetooth USB adapter for $20 and a good pair of BT earphones, again purchased online for cheap (I recommend samsung BT500 earphones).

Another alternative, my speakers have a earphone jack in them as well (the computer speakers, as well as the reciever I currently have my sound card plugged into).

If you have a quality home theater set up, for $80 on new egg you can pick up a good soundcard with optical, Coax, and AV out which you plug into your home entertainment center that again will allow you to use headphones.
Good Luck

My Acoustic Research AWSEE2BK speakers were working about 2 weeks ago (last time I used them) and today they would not connect. I removed and reinstalled them a couple of times, this has worked in the past when I have not been able to connect to them. At this point, they are installed under Bluetooth devices, but they are not in the device manager - they used to be under sound and game controllers - and of course not in the manage audio devices, where they also used to be. Today they ended up under Peripheral bluetooth device in the device manager, and the drivers could not be installed. After much monkeying around, I uninstalled them again, and then they quit showing up in the device manager too. I have spent many hours on many forums and pretty much every manufacturers website I think, and cannot figure this out. My bluetooth radios are Dell Wireless 1704 Bluetooth v4.0+HS and Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator. I did go to the Broadcomm website and update the driver. I have also checked the Bluetooth support under features and made sure the settings were automatic and started, and I also re-started this feature. I have run the trouble shooter for playback devices and got no where because the speakers are not connected. Under device manager, when they were showing up as peripheral bluetooth devices, I tried to update the drivers from there.

Hi,
Asus MoBo P7P55D LE, I tried to update my drivers using a program that detects new drivers. Unfortunately when it had finished, I did not have any sound. Speakers plug into the rear panel and headphone into the front panel. Been into the device manger and all devices are working correctly. Went to the Asus site to download the via/nvidia drivers but when they downloaded, I used the setup but windows says it cannot find the drivers, also used the Mobo disk and again windows says cannot find drivers, so at a loss. I somehow managed to get the front headphone jack working but has a permanent hiss on it. Any suggestions would be appreciated
Thanks and Regards

Answer:Unable to get speaker working although device manager says working ok

First off NEVER use one of the sites that scans your system to see if you need driver updates. There too many posts of people having problems after using one of those sites.

You can Rollback the drivers that were installed. Go to the Device Manager, display each of the devices (one at a time) and in the properties for the device. click on Driver Tab and then click Rollback Driver. This should get you back to where you were before you did whatever update.

I'm trying to make a mic-speaker combination which works without external power supply!

Also, are there any software which will simplify the whole process?

Answer:Bluetooth Headset mic to External Speaker via Win 7 Laptop

To me the laptop would have to be Bluetooth enabled which if it was then you could play the sound through the laptop speakers.

Adding a set of active powered speakers would then produce what you are saying on the headset.

I have had a 5.1 speaker arrangement on my Vista x64 PC for some time. Today, the front left speaker decided to stop working correctly. When trying to plug my headphones in to a rear jack on my motherboard (onboard sound), I noticed that sound was only coming through the right earphone. I decided to give up with trying to listen through my headphones for the time being and plugged my speakers back in, only to find that now my front left speaker wasn't working correctly. I tried to adjust the balance on my speakers, as I thought I could hear a whisper of a sound through the front left.
The front left speaker is producing sound, but at a greatly reduced volume to the rest of the speakers, I have to set the balance to the following to make FL and FR speakers 'the same' volume (by ear).
FL volume: 100
FR volume: 0
I have my speakers plugged in to 3 jacks on my motherboard (out of 6).
The green jack for FL and FR.The black jack for RL and RR.The orange jack for C and SubW.I have been unsucessful installing Realtek (which is a shame, because on my last motherboard I was able to solve the problem with that somehow, but I can't remember how) as it states the drivers are not supported. Which I'm assuming means my motherboard doesn't support it.
My motherboard is an MSI Intel p35 Neo.
I have had this setup working fine for around a month.My speakers are labtec (but I don't see how that would matter).I am currently using the normal drivers that come with Vista.Any ideas?

Sounds like something has happened to the headset, based on what you report.
What type of headset is this? USB? or does it have a 3.5mm stereo plug(s)?

Can you try it on a different PC to see if it works OK or not?

i've got a bit of a problem with my girlfriends acer travelmate 2424. In the last two weeks it has been turning off from time to time. 20-30 minutes after being turned on it just turns off without any notice. It happens while running on battery power or the main power supply.

If the laptop is turned back on immediately after turning off, it turns off during boot-up.

This morning when she's turned the computer on, she got the message:

"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM"

Now I'm trying to use recovery console on the win XP CD, but it keeps turning off before I get to the recovery console.

My idea is that maybe the cpu is overheating because of dirt inside the fan or something like that. Do you think that is a likely reason for the turning off problem?

I'm not sure weather I should try to open it up and try to clean it, because if it's not because of the dirt, but because of some hardware failure, then the warranty probably won't cover after I've opened it up. The laptop is almost two years old, and the warranty is 2 years.

Can you say anything about weather it's more likely that heating is causing this problem or weather you think it's hardware failure?
 

Answer:Acer travelmate laptop keeps turning off

Bet on a hard drive failure, or memory failure, or a very dirty system.
Does your girlfriend have a cat or a dog... pet hair can really gag the works on a laptop. I would get a couple of cans of Dust Off or other good canned cleaner gas, and clean out all the air channels, as well as the CPU fan thoroughly.
Then run the free MemTest86 for four hours or 7 passes, whichever is longer... if it will run that long.
Figger out the hard drive brand and model, then go to the website of the hard drive manufacturer (unless it is a Toshiba, which has no drive fitness test) and run the drive tests that you find. If it failes the SMART test, get another drive.

If you cannot get into windows you can remove the Harddrive and connect it to another computer via USB. You will be able to save all your personal info to that computer. Then you can reinstall the HDD into your laptop and factory reset.

Answer:Acer laptop pad not working

For a start - very important, switch off CAPS LOCK - it's regarded as shouting and many will just ignore you.To switch the touchpad back on there will either be a small button just to the side or top of the touchpad, or there will be a combination key - Fn button with one of the F keys along the top - look at the logos on each one for an idea of what they do.To be absolutely certain, as it varies with different models, you can get the quick start guide from your local Acer website."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

Hey everyone,

I'm new to the forum, so I apologise if I miss anything out.

Just last week I bought an Acer Aspire 5738G laptop.

The laptop came loaded with a bunch of programs that I didn't want, so I uninstalled a whole lot of them ("Orion", eSobi, McAfee Trial Version, Office 2007 Trial Version, Office 2007 compatibility pack, Oberon game packs etc..).

The problem is that after I uninstalled the extra programs, the F8 key on the keyboard doesn't respond when I try pressing it in applications like Windows Media Player, or even Microsoft Word/Excel/Powerpoint etc.

However, I know the key is still physically functional, since when I press the F8 in conjunction with the "function" button (Fn + F8), it mutes the laptop.

I was also able to access the Safe Mode menu by pressing F8 during startup.

I called Acer, and they said to do a system restoration.

When I did restore the system back to factory settings, all the programs that I didn't want, which came with the laptop, were installed again... but the F8 key was working.

I thought the computer was fixed, so removed the unwanted programs... and now it's back to only working when pressed with the "Fn" button (ie the F8 key only works when I press it with "Fn").

I really don't want to do a system restore again, and I don't know why the F8 key isn't working - all other F1, F2, F3 etc are working.

Can someone help me with this problem?

Answer:Acer Laptop Travelmate 240 booting up problem

Hello Ramesh Suri

I think you will need an XP installation CD to fix this. If you do not have one, borrow one just to run this fix.

Then
Configure your PC to boot from CD if it isn't already set up that way. You may need to enter the BIOS to configure the PC to boot from the CD.
Set the boot order to
Floppy (if present)
CDROM
Hard Disk
SAVE and EXIT

Start your PC with the XP Setup CD in the drive. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD..." prompt, do so and let the CD-based boot process begin.

When the Recovery Console option is offered ("Press R to start the Recovery Console"), do so. You may be asked which Windows installation to enter, in which case type the number of the Windows installation you wish to work on (usually "1").

When prompted, enter the Administrator's password for that Windows installation. If you did not set a password just press ENTER

At the command prompt, type
Bootcfg /Rebuild
ENTER

The exact wording will depend on your setup, but after a few moments you'll see a prompt that says something like:
Total Identified Windows Installs: 1
[1] C:\Windows
Add Installation To Boot List?

Assuming the information you see is correct, enter
Y
Bootcfg will start the process of rebuilding the boot list to include the indicated Windows installation

After a moment, you'll be asked to "Enter Load Identifier."
This is the name of the operating system that will appear in boot me... Read more

Hello, I have an Acer laptop running on Windows 7 and the other day I spilled something on it while cooking. After cleaning it off (just with a cloth) most of the keys wouldn't work. The ones that did didn't wok correctly, i.e 'u' would be 'bu' and so on. The next day, none of the keys worked. I cleaned it with hand sanitizer, and some worked, but again there were messed up 'double keys.' It now seems that they are almost all dissasociated from their original keys. Like, F9 is now spacebar, 7 is enter, etc. I've already restored the computer to factory settings the way it was when I bought it, but its the same. How do you reset the keys?

Answer:Acer laptop Keyboard not working

Your problem is that the contacts on the underside are not clean and the small currents that make the contacts now are bleeding between contacts and causing unexpected results like the double entrys and changed entrys. The only way to fix this is to remove the battery, disassemble the lower computer parts, remove the keyboard and either clean all of the contacts and other sticky surfaces carefully with alcohol, or replace the keyboard and clean all other sticky surfaces. For MOST, this is a job for a professional. Tell him EXCATLY what happened so he knows what the job entails. This will probably not be an inexpensive repair and if it were an older machine it might not pay, but for a fairly new machine that otherwise works well, it probably pays.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

NSWEENEY,
 
If you have already attempted to reinstall the drivers from our support site the next question is when did this issue occur?
 
If you know when it started you could do a system restore back to when it worked and work forward from there, I know that there were some issues after a recent Windows update.
 
Should those processed fail you can attempt a refresh on your system.
 
Should that fail I would recommend a reset to factory defaults.

My laptop (Acer Aspire 4750G) touchpad is not working. It is still usable, I can move the cursors with it. But the system seems telling me that I keep pressing the right button of the touchpad, so when I left click/tap the touchpad, it works as a right click instead. I disabled that by plugging in my USB mouse and right-clicking on the mouse.

Answer:Acer laptop sound not working

Did the speaker just all of a sudden stop working? If so, this is rare as speakers are a relatively simple electromagnetic device. They usually just don't just break somehow and stop all of a sudden. This is probably another issue like hardware or driver related. Check the Device manager and see if there is anything amiss there ans see if you can restore the driver. I am guessing driver and not MB' hardware malfunction like the realtek audio chip or whatever audio manufacturer is on-board. since you said the headphones still work.

Yeah, my USB headset was a little weird at first as well.

Try going into your volume control (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control):
1. Click Options
2. Properties
3. Change the mixer device from the USB headset to your speakers.

Should work.

Also should note you can change the output settings in most audio software (for example: Windows Media Player, Winamp, etc.) so if you can't hear anything from your speakers when using those programs, try fiddling with those settings as well. I know for Winamp it's Options > Preferences > Plug-ins > Output > double-click the plug-in you use (mine is out_ds.dll) and again change it to your speakers using the drop down menu.

Answer:Keypad on Acer Aspire laptop isn't working

How are you turning your numeric keypad? On a laptop the numeric keypad is integrated with the keyboard. In order to turn it on/off you usually have to use the Fn key and one of the function keys. On my laptop it is Fn and F11. You will see the light for the numeric keypad turn on. You turn it off in the same fashion. The procedure varies for every model of laptop so read the manual for the proper procedure for your model.

Hi all,

Just to say that if anyone has the same problem with the wireless not appearing to work with windows 7, I have found out that if you use the normal status bar (bottom right) and select your access point, and type in your key, this will not work. You have to do it on the manual setup of the network and type in the access point and key there with your desired security and then windows 7 will actually connect to the wireless access point.

hope that helps.

Today as I turned on my Aspire V3 laptop I found the system running extremely slow. Opening task manager I found RAM and Harddrive was almost running at 100%, then I checked it was McAfee scan that came with Pre-installation that is taking up all the resources. After about 10 minutes of running like this I decided to restart my computer. However after restart many system functions are no longer working. I can no longer access task manager. either CTRL+ALT+DEL or win-r wont bring it up. Tried MSCONFIG and again it wont start after I enter the keys. System restore similarly won't start after I click the bottons. There is no internet, clicking on device manager bottons won't bring up anything, driver update bottons similarly won't bring any response,  even reset to factory default botton won't work-was able to access the menu but when clicking on bottons nothing starts. - it seems as if the whole operating system is broke.  Since this McAfee program came with the Acer laptop (it literarily says McAfee Internet security -Acer on the program menu) was wondering if anyone from Acer knows about this issue and knows how to fix it. Thanks.

Answer:Acer aspire V3 laptop stopped working after McAfee...

Sounds like the reboot came up in safe mode. Try a shutdown, restart to see if it clears up. Rebooting while in something as intensive as a virus scan / repair is seldom safe. You should always let it continue until it's finished, even if inconvenient.

I have an Acer 5004 WLMi laptop and the hard drive is failing, or, has already failed as of tonight, based of the screeching noise it was making. I have a brand new W.D. 250GB to replace it with.

Problem is, the way I understand Acer to work, the actual recovery data is on a hidden partition on the old drive, which is accessed by pressing Alt+F10, or running the Recovery disc. I've tried running the Recovery disc, but it is not bootable, I can't use it to reinstall Windows XP.

I have the CD Key right on the bottom of the laptop. I actually bought a pair of IDE laptop adapters so that I could hook them up to my desktop and hopefully clone the old drive to the new one to copy the hidden partition, but I think my old drive is beyond that point.

Acer wants $130 for 90 minutes of tech support. I could buy another copy of Windows for cheaper than that.

Frustrated, don't know what to do...

I don't know if there are downloadable OEM .ISO's out there which I can use my own CD key for. I tried using my CD key with my retail disc but of course that didn't work. I'm not trying to get around the system; I'm just trying to get my laptop working again.

Thanks.
- Dave
