Preferred Solution: My Acer Aspire 4741G laptop sounds suddenly stopped working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

"I already checked the sound driver, no question marks appeared"... Do you mean no exclamation points like this (!)? If you can hear normal sound from the headset the sound driver is okay. This could be caused by a keyboard setting. Make sure the sound is all the way up and that it is not muted

one night i left the laptop on because i was downloading sth in the morning the computer was turned off and when i tried to start the thing it worked fine up until the screen that says quot Starting Windows quot i have windows btw and i guess right before the desktop is supposed to show up i saw a blue screen for maybe half a second and the computer restarts by itself well the same thing kept happening everytime i tried to start the laptop after that i tried Safe Mode Automatic Recovery Mode Start at previous good config and every other option that is available after pressing F F during startup since that did not work i booted the computer with my windows cd and tried to reinstall the OS after i press working laptop Acer aspire 5739G stopped quot Install Windows quot or sth similar it says quot Loading setup quot or sth like that and just stays that way --and trust me i waited long enough since that did not work out i got a windows XP Acer aspire 5739G laptop stopped working cd and tried to install it it loads up well enough and rite before installation the blue screen appears again but this time it just stays there the only thing i can think of is maybe that last d l i was talking about might have been a virus or sth and maybe i can resolve the problem if i could somehow load command prompt and format the hard drive i have only one partition btw i read somewhere that pressing quot R quot just when windows setup starts should take me to Recovery Console but that didnot seem to work out anyway any help will be much appreciated oh and btw i have a -bit machine nbsp

A:Acer aspire V3 laptop stopped working after McAfee...

Sounds like the reboot came up in safe mode. Try a shutdown, restart to see if it clears up. Rebooting while in something as intensive as a virus scan / repair is seldom safe. You should always let it continue until it's finished, even if inconvenient.

Hi I have a Windows Lenovo notebook and a Toshiba Satellite Windows laptop and a mouse lol Well the mouse has been working fine for months but suddenly the mouse has stopped working in my Toshiba laptop As I didn't know how to fix it and as Toshiba laptop was full of crap I've just formatted its HDD and made a clean install of Windows and updated everything laptop just in suddenly 1 Mouse working stopped After that I've plugged the mouse in and the same error it connects and disconnects all the time Sometimes if I'm in Mouse suddenly stopped working in just 1 laptop the Device Manager refreshing the devices mysteriously it start to work but just for a few minutes Sometimes and just sometimes the Device Manager shows that there's an unknown device connected to a USB port that is not working The error code is That mouse works perfectly Mouse suddenly stopped working in just 1 laptop in my other notebook the lenovo I've connected a different mouse to the Toshiba and it works perfectly in any port So that makes me say this -The mouse is not broken cause it works in my other laptop -Toshiba's USB ports work nice cause any other device I connect works seamlessly -After a clean install it can't be a software problem So what the hell is going on THANKS

A:Mouse suddenly stopped working in just 1 laptop

Sound like a driver problem.

Did you do the clean Windows install from the Lenovo recovery partition and install all the system specific drivers? If not, visit the Lenovo Support site. Unlike some laptops, my Lenovo Yoga 13 didn't come with an automatic driver update program. You have to download their drivers and such.

They have changed their support site several times so now it's very easy to get the right drivers.

A:Dell Laptop suddenly stopped working

Hi CHOA18,
I would need more info about the issue.
What is the exact system model? When you state the system does not turn on, do you see any leds come on when the power button is pressed? Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system? Could you test with another power adapter if possible? Does the adapter led stay on and stable or does it go off when connected to the system?
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Suddenly my HDMI 2 connection with the LG TV has stopped working.

When I switch in Input to HDMI 2 it comes up on screen Connecting as usual but then reverts to no signal.

I?ve taken the lead out and in again but it still won?t connect.

I note when researching this problem some people are suggesting graphic driver updates and I did start with a Microsoft thing but cancelled cos I was worried in case it was not legit or virus etc.
I'm an oldie and nervous of this stuff.
I haven?t changed anything ? it was working earlier but just didn?t work when I switched as usual to HDMI 2
I do hope somebody can help me
Many thanks

Hello Robwan,

Usually, if just a few keys stop working... it's a bad keyboard. This happens a lot with Gaming Computers, due to the heavy use of certain keys.

If an external keyboard works, I'd consider replacing the onboard keyboard. You can also test using the on-screen keyboard, as well.

A new keyboard can be purchased on ebay or

Hi Guys I'm currently facing some issues with my Acer Aspire T laptop Windows Ultimate bit Currently the sound on the laptop does not work at all The playback device I am currently using is ' WsAudioDevice S ' I have tried everything to try and fix the issue and no solution has come up to fix it Sometimes when Sound Aspire at 4830T not working Acer all Laptop on i boot up the laptop playback device appear on startup This is called Conexant High Definition audio driver but it is only available sometimes and doesn't even appear on the playback devices section I have tried going to device manager but it doesn't even appear there as well As well as this I have tried to reinstall it by using the Acer eRecovery tool which allows me to install default driver for my laptop However every time I try to Sound on Acer Aspire 4830T Laptop not working at all install the Conexant High Definition audio driver it says 'could not find the device for this driver' Has anybody got an idea of how to fix this BTW I also tried installing other sound drivers like Realtek HD audio but it just said the same thing This is what my Device manager screen and my playback device screen is currently showing

A:Sound on Acer Aspire 4830T Laptop not working at all

Conexant is correct according to Acer, what you have is wrong and I'm not sure how it got there.

If there is no direct hardware driver installed (e.g. Conexant) Windows will install the generic, basic function, High Definition Audio Device. This system should also have HDMI Audio (Possibly Intel HDMI Audio).

Suggest you uninstall the WsAudio Device, in the Device Manager. In the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the WsAudio entry to highlight it and then LEFT click "Uninstall". Also check the box to uninstall the drivers. Then restart the PC and when Windows starts, assuming there is no hardware problem, Windows should install the High Definition Audio Device. This is not a full featured sound driver but should give you PC speaker sound. If this works OK you can then install the Conexent driver (what is listed on the Acer site for this model).

My Acer Aspire AX1920-ER20P suddenly can't find my network adapter (doesn't show up in Device Manager, there is NO Network tab). It was working fine a few hours ago. How can I have windows recognize the device and show it in Device Manger so I can update drivers if necessary or reconfigure it? I'm not sure which network card is in it and how to find out.

Hi, I am hoping someone here can help me. I have been using my Acer Aspire Z5600's ethernet connection to access the internet, until last night when my power tripped out. When it came back, I could only connect to the internet via the wireless adapter. Looking in device manager, there is no sign of any Ethernet adapter. I've managed to download what I think is the most up to date updater, but running it shows no drivers need to be updated. Has anyone heard of this problem before, and if so how did you reinstate the ethernet adapter, please? Thanks, Clive

Device manager, click on View, show hidden devices, click on your network adapters and see if there's any sign of ethernet adapter.

My touch screen stopped working. I followed some of the advice on this forum but was unable to find the HID Touch Screen in the Device manager. I then tried to find the driver for the touch screen, but it was not there. I search Acer Drivers, but there was no driver available. Where can i get the driver for the touch screen, or find the maker of the touch screen to download it from their site.

The various open "Applications" should all have the same levels or however you want them. Experiment with the faders to see how they work; they actually work really well for keeping your specified settings across applications.

So one day I was using a laptop wirelessly when the internet just suddenly turned off. I checked my modem and it was working fine but when I checked my router, the lights were on but not blinking. it was just a steady light. when I checked for a wireless network the name of the network I usually use didnt show up.

I tried unplugging everything and plugging everything back in again and I tried pressing the reset button on the back of the router. Can anyone help?

Thanks so much

P.S. my router is a linksys WRT300N Wireless-N Broadband router

what devices do you have connected the router anything else wireless
make and model of the pc

does the PC work if you connect to the router by a cable ?
if not
try connecting directly to the modem and see if that works OK

we need to see some details, which will mean you need to copy to a working PC

Two new motherboards tells us you made the same simple install error in both of them.
Tell us more about power supply, memory, cable.
Did you make sure the memory was correct for both new boards, and what is the memory on the old board. Would also like to know the power supply and other hard ware.
What happens with the most basic, simple install. Does everything light up?

If you used the same hard drive with the same Windows install on the two motherboards, that is the problem. Windows has detected that you have changed the motherboard and will not operate unless you reinstall Windows on the drive on each new motherboard... One install for each motherboard.
My guess is that you will be fine if you change hard drives or do reinstalls or repair installs of the Windows on the new motherboard.

I've been using the Microsoft Wireless Broadband router (MN-500) to connect to the internet. This afternoon, while I was away, the wireless connection was suddenly lost. The internet is fine, because when i plug my computer directly into the router (via ethernet), i am able to access the internet. However, the router does not seem to broadcast a wireless signal for the LAN.

I've reset the router, both manually and via the software and reconfigured the network. After this process, the Wireless Network sometimes appears momentarily in Windows...but the connection drops before it can connect.

All the lights on the router light up as normal and it indicates that both the wireless LAN and the WAN are working properly. I have no idea why I can't connect to the network wirelessly though...

Any thoughts?

Not to be harsh, but when you get it working again thru what ever means you might have to do, make an image on a flash drive or what ever you choose and then, if the SSD has failed completely, install a new one and use the image to bring you back to the time of your last backup.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
I am assuming that the two USB ports that are working are on the back of the computer.  That the two other back ones along with the front ones are not working.  Possibly there is a conflict with the hardware information stored in the CMOS which is preventing all the USB ports from working.  I would suggest you try clearing the CMOS to see if that will correct the problem you are having.  On page #26 of your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual show the location of the coin cell CMOS battery.  The battery's socket will either have a little tab to eject the battery or a slot in which you can use a small screw driver to lightly pry up the edge the battery.  With the machine unplugged remove the battery and press the power button for 15 seconds.  Then reinstall the battery, plug and then boot up the computer to see if the problem is resolved.  It is normal after clearing the CMOS to have to enter the time & date when the computer is booted  up.
The link below is for your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual. When working inside your system please follow all precautions and recommendations that are noted in the manual.

l was typing a document yesterday and then suddenly the enter key stopped working closely followed by the "t, i, o, g, :, and UP keys.

Any idea what has caused this and how I can fix it? [trying to avoid buying a new keyboard... laptop user... sony vaio - vgn/c1z.]


A:Certain keys suddenly stopped working

Boot into safe mode or command prompt.

See if keyboard works. Or even in BIOS and see if the UP key works. Make sure its not a software issue (virus). if those keys still don't work... you have 2 choices:

1 - Buy a USB keyboard for $10~25 (cheap and easy)
2 - Order a new keyboard from SONY and install it yourself of pay a tech. Most likely will require taking apart the notebook.

A:Internet suddenly stopped working

I suspect your LAN card has fried. If you are able to, try running diagnostics on the device itself (there's probably an ability to do this from "Device Manager"). If you can't, then I don't know how you could test for it being dead other than if when you plug in an Ethernet cord the clear connector doesn't light up green (mine does on our Dell Dimension 3000 XP Desktop to communicate to me that it IS working, IS plugged in and IS receiving proper connection from and to the Modem/Router).

If yours does have an LED as described and it DOESN'T turn the clear plastic connector of the LAN cable green, then it's dead and there's no bringing it back.

And if/when you confirm it is fried, you need to replace it. They're generally inexpensive if you don't want it to be WiFi or anything other than your standard 802.11g 10/100/1000 Gigabit LAN. You can probably pick one up without the "bells and whistles" for $30 or less online these days. They work just as good as the $100 ones, just without some "extras".

The other thing to suspect would be your MOBO. Bridges/connections on them can and sometimes do fry out, effecting other components they distribute the power too. Hopefully that's not the problem because they're in the $100+ range to replace.
EDIT: The "Default Gateway" is obtained by your Modem/Router. The fact you are getting "not available" means that there is no communication between the computer and the Modem/Router. Since your LAN cable is functional, I stand by what I said. It's most likely your LAN card and it's very highly likely that it has fried.

My main desktop which has been going through a bit of a patch at the moment now has all USB ports acting very strangely in that plug something in and the insert sound goes off but nothing shows up in Computer and even Kaspersky does not ask if I want to scan it.

The machine has the usual back and front ports and also a card reader (Icy Box with 2x3.0 and 4x2.0 and SD etc slots)

Now I have tried chkdsk /f /r sfc MBAM SAS ADW full Kaspersky scan and tried the sticks and drive sin my other machines and all are good. Have installed all the drivers etc etc but still no go.

Any ideas please before I run a rescue disk and memtest as I seem to be running out of options. Boards about three years old now - Asus P8Z77-V

A:USB ports suddenly stopped working

Try unplugging all the power and let it sit overnight. Then plug in and try again in the morning. I've seen this work on occasion when all the USB ports suddenly don't work. For that matter, if simply unplugging AC doesn't work, might be worth pulling out any CMOS battery too.

Hi everyone, I've been using a D-link DIR-615 router successfully to connect to the internet for about 7 weeks. Up until now, it was working perfectly, both wirelessly and wired. It's also using the latest firmware (4.00).

The internet status LED on the front of the router is orange instead of green. When accessing the admin panel, it shows a blank IP address so I believe it's having trouble getting an IP address from the modem.

I've tried rebooting it numerous times and still the internet light remains orange and it's not working. I've even tried restoring it to the factory settings but to no avail. The internet works fine if I connect to the modem directly so it's definately the router at fault.

Does anyone know why it would suddenly stop working after such a short time? I'm out of ideas.

Both of my CD ROM drives on my computer have stopped working. I have gone into the device manager, and both devices have the yellow question mark next to them. I uninstalled both devices and restarted the computer. It recognizes the hardware on startup and attempts to start them, but then I get a message that says there was an error with the hardware installation. The Device Status says: Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)

I have performed a registry mechanic to see if that would help, but nothing.

Any thoughts?

I used to have Homegroup working for all my computers. Now, for some reason, it doesn't work. Well, it says that some computers are joined, (on the individual computers) but when you open the Homegroup, no computers show and it says that there aren't any connected. I can have two laptops and a desktop all together, right next to each other, on the same network and they'll all say that. Yes, they all have the same password.I've tried to leave the Homegroup from all computers and start over again, but it won't allow me to create a new Homegroup. The only option is to "Join" which I did and am in the same place.Old stuff that still works, somewhat....

When i tried to load, the regular about half screen logo came up to do the initial load, but before it went into the game full screen it closed, a window came up and said Battle for Middle has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly and the game automatically closes. I tried to load multiple times, reinstall, restart my computer, i even got a whole new disk/CD key still didn't work. Any ideas why or how to solve it.

I use my laptop regularly to present via LCD projectors using a VGA cable. After a break of 4 weeks, I cannot get the output to work.  On one projector / cable, the display kept flickering on and off, as if the connection to my laptop was physically wobbly at the location where the VGA cable meets the laptop.  On the next projector / cable, my laptop registered that the cable was stable and connected and offered the display options for dual display.  However the display was not shown on the screen.  Both projectors / cables work well with other laptops. Any ideas?

Hey guys! I've had my Aspire E14 for a few months now. I was using it today to play music when suddenly, one of the speakers stopped working. The left speaker literally stopped mid-song. I checked the volume mixer, and when I tried minimizing the volume of the right speaker (the working one), I couldn't hear anything, so I know that the left one's busted. I haven't dropped my laptop ever or anything like that, so I don't really know what happened. I haven't tried anything yet aside from restarting, because I might tweak something that I'm not supposed to, so I wanted to ask around first. What should I do and what do you guys think happened here?

Hi guys,

I wonder if anyone can help.

My wife was using our PC, playing an online puzzle game, and she muted the sound.
When I came to use the PC myself, I noticed the sound was muted, so I un-muted it, expecting all to be good again, but it wasn't.
No sound at all !
After messing around for quite a while, I tried uninstalling and re-installing the drivers, that hasn't worked.
I've just done a system restore, and that hasn't worked either.
I've run MBAM & Microsoft Security Essentials, and neither has shown any problems.
I'm at a total loss, please help.

Many thanks in advance

Hi guys, I'm hoping somebody can help me out here...

The first thing I do after installing win 7 is apply the uxtheme patch. I've been running custom themes for a while, but yesterday decided to change the look of things. I applied a os x leopard type theme, it didn't work and now I've lost all desktop visual effects (transparency, themes, win+tab).

I run the diagnostic and it detects that 'Windows Desktop Manager is disabled' - so I think "Ok, I'll just go into services and re-enable it"... but it's GONE! How the hell can a service just remove it self?

So I run System Restore back to when I knew it was working, but still no damn transparency, that service or themes, just the default non-transparent Aero!

Could anyone help???

Whenever I try to open Firefox, I get this error message:

The odd thing is, the last thing I changed with Firefox is downloading the new update (since it did that all on its own) and removing the CoolIris plugin because I decided I didn't like it. It didn't stop working right away, though. It was fine for a day or two and then it suddenly wouldn't work anymore. What could be causing this?

After trying a fix involving a USB stick, I realized that none of my USB ports work. The ports light up when I restart, until Windows 7 finishes logging in, and once it begins the drivers refuse to work. Is it because of the recent updates? Because I cleaned up my back-up copies? Any help will be apprecited!

A:USB Ports Have suddenly stopped working...

Have you tried disabling and re-enabling all of your USB controllers and ports in Device Manager?

If you don't know how to do get there...
Start menu > Right click on Computer > Manage > Device Manager

Moreover, to disable USB ports, go to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers button in the Device Manager. Right click each individual one and click disable. For each one. Then after each one is disabled, start from the top and do the same thing but click Enable this time. There are some dependencies in there sometimes that will disable more than one individual device, so be aware of that.

Can anyone figure out which problem I'm facing? Is it related to my hardware?

A:Suddenly all USB ports stopped working on win 7

First place I would start would be update all primary drivers for your PC, what ever flavor you have, desktop/laptop. Go to that vendors website and download and install all the latest drivers. If you have add on specific hardware go to that vendors site for drivers.

The next thing I would do is to rule out any Virus's, malware, spyware and adware that my be lurking about your system. It's known that some of these nasties can and do corrupt system software and hardware.

(Be gentle with me I am a middle aged lady not all that computer-savvy!)

My desktop PC is connected by ethernet to my D-Link G604T and I give my paying lodgers free wireless acess on their laptops.

This arrangement has worked perfectly for three years.

Now, suddenly, I am connected to the Net but nobody can get connected from their laptops.

The ONLY thing that has changed recently is that I did a reformat on my PC. That's all I did, I didn't unplug anything, just the simple reformat one does by putting in the Windows disk. Can that have caused this?

I've restarted the D-Link, and tried unplugging it, to no avail. I'm not all that brilliant with computers so I am now at a dead end.

Can anyone help?

My sound was working earlier today. I was listening to music on youtube, and paused it in order to read something off a different website. When I went to re-play the song, my sound had suddenly stopped working.

I've tried system restore and updating drivers. Everything seems to be working correctly, but no sound will play. There are no errors in regards to the driver, card, or playing sounds.

However, when I go to the sound mixer and there is a sound playing, no green line will appear indicating volume. Same if I click on the mixer and adjust the volume.

Can anybody help me?

A:Sound suddenly stopped working.

Samething happened to me and I too have re-installed drivers. Difference I have is that I get message "C:Windows\system32\dssend.dll" and in Media player notice says "is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using original installation"...which I did but still the same. I also ger the dssend.dll message in some incoming e-mail stating picture is poor quality.....when it is not. All this happenned out of the blue, I had not installed any new programmes or devices. Anyone got any clues to resolve please.

My audio has stopped working for Windows and Gaim, but Winamp and various games are still fine. I've reinstalled the drivers many times and uninstalled every possible audio device, but I always end up with the same thing.

In Winamp's WaveOut plugin, the first device is messed up.
In DirectSound everything is fine.
In Windows' sound manager, the preview button is greyed out.
I think this means there is something wrong with my wave settings, I just don't know how to fix it. Hope the pics help, let me know if you need more info.

A:USB ports suddenly stopped working!!

Tell us the brand and model of computer, whether a desktop or a laptop, and the location of the usb ports... whether front or back, or whether we are talking about a powered external hub, or a multimedia box in the middle of the computer which has a 9 in 1, 15 in 1, or similar memory card reader with USB ports.
Are the USB ports built into the case, or on a pci card slot on the back of the computer.
Generally, USB ports do not fail. There are a few times when they do because any electronics made with chips, thyristors, and printed circuits can fail. But USB ports are among the most rare of failures... except when you are using multiports.
On inexpensive USB connections, they all share one connector... If you have four or five ports on one connector to the motherboard, then those in use will reduce the power that is accessible on lower quality units.

i don't use the lan card to connect to the internet since i have a wireless adapter. i do however use it as a network bridge for connectivity for my xbox 360.

so i was playing xbox live until suddenly i got disconnected. i checked my computer to see that it said the network cable was unplugged. i already tried to uninstall drivers, reboot, tried a different cable etc. i narrowed it down to the nforce network controller. any help would be much obliged

Update: fixed it myself, im guessing it was an irq problem because i went into the bios and just disabled some ports i wasnt using like the parallel port for example, and the problem has cleared up.

A:onboard lan suddenly stopped working.

Thank you shaolinchamp. This might work for me. I am helping out a friend with a similar issue. I would try it before reinstalling his OS.
