Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook ?

Low volume The volume is very low even in max vol. I tried adjusting both from the volume Icon and ythe keyboard. I have the same problem and it's driving me crazy! The loudest it ever gets is about 5-10% of the max. I have checked all of the solutions listed here and nothing has helped. I've had this problem ever since I bought my laptop. Any help is appreciated!


Answers :

There could be one of three problems here.
1) You need new sound drivers. You can get them from your laptop's distributor's website.
2) Your speaker or head phones that you are using are either blown or do not support the amount of watts the sound chip produces.
3) The sound chip on your laptop is bad and you are going to either have to take it to a computer repair shop or send it out to a repair service to replace it.
Vista updates cause problems like this you may have to download the latest Vista driver for your sound card from the Acer site

Hey. My problem is this, when I start up my computer, there's a black screen with two things to click on, and I have 30 seconds to choose either one of them.
