My laptop is Acer Aspire 4736z..

 

I can't hear any sound from my laptop unless I use a headset.. I tried to play some music on both windows media player and itunes and I see on the volume control that it is displaying that it has a sound, but there is none... and even on skype i can't hear anything unless i use my headset.

 

I even checked my sound card on device manager it says that it is working properly. I tried everything from the internet but nothing seems to work for me.. please someone help me :'(

 I have the same problem on my Toshiba Satellite L755 laptop.  Headphones and external speakers work fine, but the internal speakers work for roughly 30 seconds & quit.  To diagnose the problem I booted from a Ubuntu DVD and tried it; got the same results.  That means it's a hardware problem.  So at first I bought cheap external speakers which circumvented the problem, but my wife didn't like the extra wires (women!), so I got a $35 Bluetooth speaker which sounds better and doesn't require any wires to the laptop. 

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

Hello and :welcome:

 

Right click your speaker icon in the system tray. Select Playback Devices. Make sure your speakers are set as default. There should be a green checkmark next to them.

 

Edit: You have Realtek High Definition Audio. Open Control Panel and select Large Icons instead of Category. You should see the Realtek HD Audio Manager. Right down your current settings. There may be a setting that you will need to change in the Manager to get Speakers to work.

I also look unto that, still I got nothing....

Did you run the Windows Sound Troubleshooter (available in Help menus)?
