Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 2480-2968 Notebook ?

No audio after new harddrive was installed.

\015 Acer Travelmate 2480 notebook. After replacing a failed hard drive, I used the factory discs to bring the system back. Everything was successful except the audio. The speaker on task bar has an x through it and the caption "no audio device is installed" appears when pointing to speaker. Vista found new hardware with this caption"windows needs to install driver software for your unknown device on high definition audio bus". I tried installing audio drivers from Acer's website but it didn't resolve my issue. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you\015

Answers :

What you need to do is open control panel and then device manager, go down to sound, video and game controllers. Open the little plus sign to the left of the little speaker, there is probably 2 devices in there you can right click both of them and delete them, do not worry, they will reinstall once you reboot, and hopefully what will happen is it will install the driver, let me know if this helps...Steve c8f192e.jpg
