Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5720-6661 Notebook PC ?

I have an ACER Aspire 5720 notebook. The internal speakers stopped working once I put the 3.5mm headphone jack in. Now sound is only obtained when headphones are plugged in. Realtek High Definition playback device is set to Speakers, not digital audio. I believe it is due to the combined analogue and digital output socket that Acer uses. The red light is now permanently on for the socket. Acer tech support have told me to recover the whole system, but it will mean that I will lose everything as

  • download the sound driver from the Acer's website and reinstall the driver after uninstalling the previous version.
  • \015\012
  • restart the system and you will everything back in shape.
thankyou
Cisfa already has a solution for this. Take a little screwdriver and wiggle it in the headphonejack. There seems to be a little switch in it. It works...for me it did anyway. I am so glad with this solution! Would never have thought of this and recovering your whole system as Acer mentioned is a lot of work without any result probable. Just use the soluiton Cisfa reported. Thanks!

Hi I am using windows media center on an Acer Media Center PC (Aspire). It is connected to my ampli using an optical cable.
