Download the windows 7 driver from the Acer website: and install that driver. I know the headphones work and that the onboard sound works, it was yesterday before I installed 7. I also used the browse function for up dating and selected the same driver that is installed and I get this driver is not recommended because it can not be verified that it is compatable with your hardware. Highlight Speakers and on the lower Right click Properties check settings for Device Usage enabled and so on. It seems to me that there should be a more comprehensive permission solution for this.
If you run into this problem due to Windows 10 October Update, we recommend you to install all drivers, as updating Intel Display Audio driver helps many Windows 10 users resolve this problem.

I ran that program a while ago and it didn't help, but I ran it again now for good measure and alas nothing came up. If I can't fix this tomorrow I'm just going to have to buy a new sound card.
Ken Thanks ken, You may need to be more specific, as far as I can tell there is no place in the sound cpl to set a default or change my output settings. Realtek High Definition audio in the Device Manger has the yellow explamation mark by it and the Device status says. Manually look at manufacturer's sites for drivers - and Device Maker's sites. It is on board audio. Finding a single culprit could be a lengthy process.

My friend has the same laptop as me colour and all and his has no problems, one difference between our is that I chose an additional sound card with mine, rather than having to put up with the average standard Dell model, which may well be the thing which is buggering everything up. The weird thing is though is my motherboard has RealTek onboard but when i went to go change the source from windows, I noticed that I was seeing a different picture for the driver. I checked in device manager and it said that it was a multimida audio controller, but has no driver. Single-click the Speakers to highlight them 4. I noticed it after Windows did its second Tuesday update. I also checked the device manager and there is no any conflicts.
But even if it did mention the audio driver you have to pay for the program to really use it. I do not get any sound out of the front panel headphone jack, but when I plug them into the rear, the auto-sensing RealTek program detects the insertion and asks what was connected. Im savy, but not that savy. In the Services window, check that the Windows Audio service is set to start automatically. If you cannot do this, try to look on your computer's manufacturer's website to find the download for your sound card driver. Not the answer you're looking for? There is a good chance that this is actually talking about the virtual audio device listed in the sound managers 'Playback Devices' list.
If i need to snip something or if anyone needs any info to help me out, please let me know. It isn't working with headphones either. Have you run any Malware scans? Also do same for Configure on Lower Left of that box.
