Re: problem with volume

make sure that you are plugging into the correct socket for the speakers, if they are colour coded then use the green one, then check the volume properties on your computer to make sure the volume is turned up and that the sound isn't muted.
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this right click to install driver also click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settingsthere also click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar if his does not fix the problem
have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer hope this helps dont forget to vote you might have to get a portable usb sound card if you mean dont have a sound card installed
Hi cliff, Have you set the volume on the Subwoofer itself yet??? if so also have a look at your PC Sound volume , for example Start Control Panel , Sound , and adjust it higher there ;) Hope this helps bud , and happy new year :)
Computer speakers are specially designed for a computer desktop
environment. They are smaller than normal stereo speakers and often
have built in volume controls and amplifiers. In most cases, you can
plug in your computer speakers and have them work immediately.
Occasionally, however, you will need to adjust your computer sound
settings to get them to work correctly.
your speakers into each other. Most PC speakers have a detachable cord
that goes between them. Powered speakers have a cord that plugs into
the wall, which may be detachable as well.

at the sound card output in the back of your computer. If your
soundcard has three colored jacks, plug into the green one. If it does
not have colored jacks, plug into the one next to the jack with the
picture of a microphone. Plug the power supply into a wall socket.
Turn on the speaker, turn up the speaker volume and play some music. If it doesn't work, continue to step 4.
Turn your volume up on whatever media player you are using. If the music still doesn't play, continue to step 5.
Go to the volume settings. If you are using windows, click Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment -> Volume Control.
the volume settings. Use your mouse to drag the main "Volume Control"
slider and the "Wave" slider all the way to the top. If either of them
have the "Mute" box checked, uncheck it. Try the sound again.
I have the same problem sir, only the speaker with volume control works. Earlier I used to twist the volume control this way and that way to get the sound from the other speaker also. Now the same technique doesn't work anymore.
As you said, you have warranty yet, use it! but, if you don't wish to use ti, you can buy a new pair of speakers, and use with montego bay or creative labs, USB sound card, and see if work fine, this should fix the problem.
Most computers use the GREEN output jack on the sound card for playback...plug your headphones in the back where the speakers go...sound? Yes...then verify you ahve the speaker system put together correctly...bet you don't...note: self powered speakers must be plugged in to work (electrical plugged in).
If no...then you got a bigger fish to fry...
