Acer / Emachine sound issues?
 
SOLVED my sound card had died

I dug out a usb sound card and everything works fine ill never understand why the time bar in media stopped moving lol.


all of a suddon i have no sound

and looking at this forum and others it seems to be a recent trend with acer (emachines)

vista x64
emachines e525

tryed stock driver and latest realtek
reinstalled windows and no joy

device manager is happy
playback devices says "working properly" with a tick
when i click test and put my ear to the speaker i can hear it crackle ever so slightly

heres the weird thing

trying to play an mp3 in windows media
the visulisation starts up as if its playing
but the bar / timer dosnt move and no sound ofc

flash vids like youtube wont play.... the bar dosnt move

microsoft fix it says no problems found

it cant be a dodjy update coz i did a clean install of vista with network disabled

it cant be a driver coz the stock driver has allways worked b4

and i cant se it being hardware.... iv not dropped it or anything
and if that was the case it shouldnt affect the time/play bar thing

soooo any ideas? other than pee on it and buy another :icon_mrgreen:

No Sound
 
Hello!

Have you tried a different media player?

Do you get any other sounds? Like Windows start up tune?

You could also try a sound/signal generator. One with a graphical representation of the input and output.

If you like l can suggest a few free ones. Basically, you choose a frequency to be generated by your sound card and watch the input/output on the screen.

hey martin

yea its not just media player... theres no windows sounds and cant stream flash vids

headphones wont work ither

I realy cant figure out why the time bar dosnt move in media or flash

the only thing iv changed recently is the ram and thinking about it thats around the time i lost sound

but surely that cant screw with sound... :confused:

meh ill put the old ones back in and see what happens
