    Dear friend,

    If the audio is not working in Windows 7 just after the Windows update.

    Then, it means that the appropriate audio driver has been replaced by another inappropriate driver.

    Or the actual audio driver has been removed.

    In this case, the easiest way to recover from this problem is to do "System Restore".

    You can do System Restore by following these steps:

    1. Just click on Windows button, then type "System Restore" in the Search bar.

    2. Now, open it and choose a restore point before Update.

    3. Just restore to that point and your Windows will be restored to that Date.

    dear friend,

    Go to the control panel.

    Select sound option from hardware & sound.

    Select the playback tab in the new sound window.

    Double click on speakers.

    Select the Advanced tab in the new window & click on Test.

    Do the same if you have headphones,by double clicking on headphone.

    Now test all the speakers & headphones.

    If you face the problem further then you have to go for driver upgradation.

    Go to the official website of Acer & install the latest upgradation of your sound drivers.

    It may happen that upgraded OS is not recognizing your old drivers.

    Hope these will help you a lot.

    it seems that update has not installed correctly,some files may corrupted and doesn't work,try to install the audio drivers from your motherboard disk, some times it doesn't work then download the drivers from internet and try to install it,do the installation after uninstalling the existing audio drivers because same installed files go to same folder and again it doesn't install or some problems might occur.
    Thank You

    Hi Guest…

    You may run the troubleshooter and check if this helps.
    I would suggest you to post back if you get any error messages.

    Steps to run troubleshooter:

    1. Click Start button, and then click Control Panel.
    2. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Click View all, and then click Playing audio.
    3. Follow the instructions of the wizard.

    If the issue still persists then, I would suggest you to download and install latest drivers from manufacturer’s website and check. You may also try installing the drivers in compatibility mode and check.

    Thanks and Hope this works...
