    Acer Aspire E1-570 - internal speakers not working?

    Hello all,

    I've had my laptop for just over 6 months now and I've encountered no problems until recently.

    However I am experiencing problems with the sound. It just doesn't appear to be working, despite the volume being turned up to the max. The problem usually fixes itself briefly after a restart but it then cuts out after time.

    None of the playback devices are muted. When I try testing the speakers, I get an error message saying "Device in Use: Please close any applications using this device for playing audio" - however, there doesn't appear to be any device using the speakers.

    I have recently started using an HDMI cable to use my laptop through my TV, I'm wondering if that has anything to do with it?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    The HDMI is probably the reason. When an HDMI cable is plugged in, Windows changes the default audio playback from the Speakers (PC Sound card) to HDMI.

    If you want the PC speakers on, with an HDMI cable plugged in you will have to manually change the playback device from the HDMI to the "Speakers". This is done in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel, Playback section. However, if you reboot, with the HDMI cable plugged in you will have to manually change the playback device again.
