Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

We installed a pair of Durabrand 2.0 CH USB-powered speakers on our Compaq Presario computer, but can't get any sound. We've plugged the green plug into the sound card (green port) and the USB plug into a USB port - but nothing. Any other suggestions?

    Device Mgr. says it's working properly. All volume controls, including the one on the speakers, is up. Sound card was working before we changed monitors (without speakers).

Is your Sound card running fine? Check it in device manager. The Green port is generally the correct one to use. Check all the voumes are on max and its all plugged ub rught.
Personally i reccomend you try live chat for this kind of issue. THeres to many questions to ask

    Alright then, think it might be an idea to try updating them. It sounds like the sound is set to run through your moniter, which is why its not working now that you have replaced it.

Installed lynex on my compaq presario sr2010nx and i cant get the sound to work


Make sure the audio drivers are in the device manager. Make sure the volume is turned up and not muted. Look at the Audio/Sound properties in the Control Panel and make sure they are not muted and the volume is up. Make sure you have the speakers plugged into the light green port on the computer and that the speakers are on and the volume is turned up.

My cp dont have sound


If it tells you that there are no speakers plugged in, I would reload the sound drivers if you can. The sound port (the green one) must be used. If you are plugging them into any other port, change them.
If you update the system drivers from Compaq, then it is possible that the sound is disabled in the computer startup menu. Or, your motherboard could be having a problem.

I need to hook speakers up to my Dell B110 computer.


2 things are needed to get sound from your speakers:

1-wiring connecting your speakers to a socket to the back of the computer. (The spot they need to plug in to ON YOUR COMPUTER is a small light green circular socket. The other end of the plug you plug in here should run to one of your speakers *usually the right side speaker-the right speaker should then have separate wiring to connect the left speaker.)

2- A source of power.
Some speakers use their own power source and plug in to a power outlet - your wall. Other types have a USB type plug and plug into a USB port in your computer and that is how THOSE get their power.

Those are the basics of sound setup. Some computers are equipped with more complicated setups such as surround sound, subwoofers, digital and more. Reply if you need more help, I will try to assist you further.

Hope this helps.

Hi

Please can you advise if you have 2 sound cards installed

You will know this by looking at the back of the computer, the sound card wil have 3 ports coloured Purple/Dark Green and Light green

Your speaker connection needs to go into the light green and will have a symbol above it like this ))(left arrow)

If there are 2 sets of ports then try one and if that fails try the other if there is only one plug your speaker conneciton into the light green port

Regards

Make sure you are plugged into the small green 3.5mm jack. if there is no sound whatsoever, then it is a failed amplifier. if there is staticky sound then you likely have a failed 3.5mm jack. Try plugging the speakers into a headphone port (if available) or disable to on-board sound device, puchase an add-in 3d soundcard and circumvent the issue.

Connecting speakers to Computer


In most cases the woofer plugs into the speaker which contains the power adapter plug, the green plug goes into the PC's audio out (usually a green plug on the back of the unit). When the USB is plugged into the machine the OS should plug and play the new hardware and may ask you to insert a driver disc if applicable.

After the OS has identified the new hardware and installed it you should be able to test additional audio out plugs if you are unable to hear sound from your first choice (again, ideally the green plug). There should also be a line out plug which may work for your purposes also.

If you are still having issues please post the model of your speakers so that we may look them up...

Dell speakers / compaq pc


They all use stereo plugs. Make sure you plug the speakers into the GREEN Hole. Also make sure that your speakers don't need any external power, also you might want to make sure you have the sound turned up too.

Let me know the results.

I have no sound on my desktop computer. All volume controls are set to maximum, yet I cannot get a single sound from the speakers. I have a Compaq Presario processor and HP monitor. Any ideas?


(In order of things to try)

1. Make sure everything is plugged in properly (speaker power, connection from speakers to computer), etc.

2. (Clarification) By all volume controls, does that include the windows sound panel options? It may be on mute. Tell me what operating system you're using and I can help you with this one. Also, your keyboard may have a mute button. Try pressing that if it does.

3. Plug in another pair of speakers/headsets to your computer and see if those work. If they don't, it's either #2 or your sound card.

4. If it is definitely not #2, it is your sound card. You'll have to purchase a new one. Go to your local computer parts dealer to get one, they can help you. If you don't have one, buy one from www.newegg.com . Post questions here or on forums, don't waste money on someone from Geek Squad or anything. Installing sound cards and the like is pain-free and easy.

Do not have sound on my compaq presario 5000


You might want to first make sure your speakers are plugged into the computer.

If you have a flat [____] plug, you need to look for the USB port in the back of your computer - it will look like the reverse of the plug.

If you have an Audio Jack <_l___[ - just plug it into the green jack.

If those don't work, look in the bottom right for a little speaker icon, click that and pull the <__> slider up.

Headphones with mic / external speakers


Does your computer have front audio ports? If so, you can just plug it in there. Otherwise you need a single male 2 dual female converter to plug into the speaker port.
