i recently bought an acer aspire (it obviously aspires to be like all the other pc's)second hand...after upgrading the ram it is not so slow, but..no sound...i'm using the speakers from my old pc so i know there good..any suggestions?
A couple of thoughts... Check in Device Manager to ensure it has sound drivers loaded. Second thought: where are you plugging them in? In some PCs, only the front or the back speaker ports are enabled - but often not both. Have you tried them in the 'other' ports?
