Why did my sound suddenly stop working?

A few days ago, I tried to play some videos on my Acer Aspire One ZG5 laptop. However, the sound simply is not present. I tried everything. I checked to see that it was unmuted. I turned the volume all the way up. I even restarted my computer. However, nothing has worked, and there is still no audio on my laptop. So what should I do? Thanks! :)

my AA1 722's sound goes out every 2-3 mins for about 30-60 seconds and comes back, very irritating. I have not found a fix yet, system restore does nothing. I've even checked with the registry configuration. Is there a fix?

Abanoub Marcus, check in the device manager to make sure that your audio device still shows up. You should also try and get the audio drivers uninstalled and than do a fresh install of those.

Hi,

This can be a video codec problem if only a single video is not giving out sound.

Try reinstalling the sound drivers if no file is giving out sound.

IF that did not work then its time to buy a USB sound card and external speakers for your laptop.

Good luck.
