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

Q: 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.

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

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.

ok i have an acer 250 it had no wifi module fitted until i got one and wacked it in with antenna's installed ,i added the driver in xp it was all up and running as far as it could be seen from windows and searched for a nework that it couldnt find , i assumed a antenna problem so tried some different ones , but the same fault remained, i then changed the wireless card for another model of intel wireless added the drivers etc but still the fault remains ! so different antennas , and internal wireless cards but the same fault seems to point me in the direction of a bios or manual switch that is disabling the antenna from picking up networks , anyone any ideas.

just for reference i have checked my sid and many networks can be found by my other laptops just not this one Grrr

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!

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?
 

A:Laptop speaker not working, headphones do.

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

I just downloaded Vonage's Softphone service which allows me to make and receive calls on my computer. I've got a Compaq nx6120 laptop, and I purchased the Logitech ClearChat Stereo PC headset.

My problem: The headset and microphone only seem to work when the laptop's speaker is enabled. This allows anyone else in the room to hear my conversations. I'd like to be able to mute my laptop speaker and still have my headset and microphone work so I may make and receive calls without broadcasting them to others in the room.

Any ideas/assistance would be greatly appreciated!

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!

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

A: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.

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. I have tried 'disabling' the built in computer speakers and reinstalling the BT speakers when the computer speakers were off and that did... Read more

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
 

A: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

Is it possible to get mic in from a Bluetooth headset, live play it through Laptop speakers/External USB Speakers?

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?

A: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.

hey

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?
 

A: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.

A: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

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?

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?

A: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.

I'm not sure where to ask but I have a problem.

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. Well the problem comes again after I do that so I'm forced to use the USB mouse, which would be very annoying and time-eating if I have something to do quickly. Also, there's nothing stuck in there a the drivers are up-to-date.

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

hello
reboot your computer and after your bios has done its check, before windows begins to load, press F8 to access the advanced boot options. You can try to boot last known good configuration from there.
See it that helps first

good luck

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.

Hi

I have an Acer Travelmate 2702wlmi laptop that Blue screens at the xp loading screen on boot. It flashes up the BSOD so fast you cant see the error code generated.

I have rebuilt the laptop onto a new HDD, swapped the memory out and i still dont know if it's software or hardware causing it ( suspect hardware).

After the BSOD, the laptop reboots and just goes round in an endless circle. If i power it down and then up again i get the ntldr is missing message and can use a boot disc to get back i to it fine. Last night i used it for hours fine, and rebooted it several times, but early today turning it on caused all the issues again.

If i leave the battery out and run it off mains it makes no difference, checked the fans are running and it does not appear to be hot.
Any help would be appreciated, even if someone knows how to get the error code off the BSOD ( stop it flashing up)

regards Neal

I have bought a new HP Notebook from a retailer. After few days of use I found that my laptop doesn't detect my headphone when I plug it into the headphone jack. When I play a video while the headphone being connected I can only hear sound from the speaker. When I go to: Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound In the list of Playback devices I can see only Speakers. And nothing else. No Headphones. I downloaded Intel Driver Update Utility tool and ran a scan. No use. I also downloaded HP Support Assistant and scanned the system for required drivers. After scanning it recommended an Audio driver which I downloaded and installed. Again nothing happened. Please help me resolve the problem.

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.

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 aspire 5755G and some of the keys have stopped working (6,8 and 9 of the top row number keys). Very occasionally they might start working again for a few minutes, or if i start tapping them hard they may start to work for a bit. But in general they don't work at all.

I plugged in a usb keyboard and all of the keys work, so I am assuming this is a mechanical problem.

I am going to attempt to replace the keyboard myself as i managed to find one video, its in a diff language but I think I can see how he does it Thay th?o s?a l?p b?n ph?m Acer Aspire 5755G keyboard replacement fix assembly guide - YouTube

However I thought before i go ahead I would ask on here is there anything else you suggest i do which might fix it. I assuming there is no way this can be a problem in the os/bios and its definitely hardware related?

I don't have any warranty left either

Thanks

A:Keys not working - Laptop - Acer Aspire 5755G

Hello Robwan,

Usually, if just a few keys stop working... it's a bad keyboard. This happens a lot with Gaming Computers, due to the heavy use of certain keys.

If an external keyboard works, I'd consider replacing the onboard keyboard. You can also test using the on-screen keyboard, as well.

A new keyboard can be purchased on ebay or keyboard.com

Hope this helps,

Hi Guys,

I'm currently facing some issues with my Acer Aspire 4830T laptop, Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit). Currently the sound on the laptop does not work at all. The playback device I am currently using is '(WsAudioDevice_383S(1))'. I have tried everything to try and fix the issue and no solution has come up to fix it. Sometimes, when i boot up the laptop 2 playback device appear on startup. This is called Conexant High Definition audio driver but it is only available sometimes and doesn't even appear on the playback devices section. I have tried going to device manager but it doesn't even appear there as well.

As well as this I have tried to reinstall it by using the Acer eRecovery tool which allows me to install default driver for my laptop. However, every time I try to install the Conexant High Definition audio driver, it says 'could not find the device for this driver'. Has anybody got an idea of how to fix this. BTW I also tried installing other sound drivers like Realtek HD audio but it just said the same thing.

This is what my Device manager screen and my playback device screen is currently showing:

Conexant is correct according to Acer, what you have is wrong and I'm not sure how it got there.

If there is no direct hardware driver installed (e.g. Conexant) Windows will install the generic, basic function, High Definition Audio Device. This system should also have HDMI Audio (Possibly Intel HDMI Audio).

Suggest you uninstall the WsAudio Device, in the Device Manager. In the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the WsAudio entry to highlight it and then LEFT click "Uninstall". Also check the box to uninstall the drivers. Then restart the PC and when Windows starts, assuming there is no hardware problem, Windows should install the High Definition Audio Device. This is not a full featured sound driver but should give you PC speaker sound. If this works OK you can then install the Conexent driver (what is listed on the Acer site for this model).
