My Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers have stopped working. I probably downloaded some other software that overrode the Dell speaker installation. How do I reinstall the Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers?

Don't need a driver for these speakers. But, if you are getting no power to the speaker system, I suggest the following:
This just happened to me (2/17/12), same Altec Lansing ADA-745 speakers/subwoofer. The back of the subwoofer has a label which reads 'T1A-250V' type fuse. This means a 1-amp, 250V fuse. I found a 4-pack of these at Radio Shack for about $3.19. Important: purchase the 'Fast Acting' fuse (not the Slow-Acting also offered). I pulled out the old fuse from the subwoofer, replaced with the new one from Radio Shack, and YEAAAA power to speaker system, green light on speaker and all works great! These speakers are so outstanding, it's worth a try (and $150 if you can find an old set), so Good luck!

    p.s. these speakers are 'plug-in and play', they don't come with or need a driver. You have some other problem such as what I mentioned above.

    p.s.s. I was just corrected by Altec Lansing, use a slow-blow fuse NOT a fast-acting as I previously wrote, sorry. I found this out as now the Fast-acting just blew (thought it was working fine), so going to go back to Radio Shack to get the Slow-Blow instead. Sorry for any inconvenience!

The speakers are probably fine. What you probably need to do is to reinstall the sound drivers on your dell.

You need the model of your dell pc and go to the dell website and find download and install the sound drivers for your system.

The model of your pc will be needed if any more assistance is needed.

The problem is not the speakers its the driver and best way to do is go in control panel/system/device manager and uninstall, then reboot and then it should re install the driver right.Come visit us at the link below.

I connected some Altec Lansing speakers to my all in one (dell) desktop and now the built-in speakers don't want to work when i disconnect the Altec Lansing speakers !!


Your audio drivers may not be detecting the removal of the audio jack. First make sure the jack is completely removed from the computer.
Next, try a reboot.
Then go to the system tray, near the clock, and right click the speaker icon (you may need to expand the tray by clicking the icon.) Select "Control Panel" (the name may change depending on your audio card manufacturer) and then look for the "Jack Detection" option, it is usually a checkbox. Make sure it's checked, or if it is, uncheck it and then re-check it.

My sound went down to half volume in all 4 altec lansing speakers. no signs of errors in device manager, tried system restore-no luck. checked all cables / connections-o.k...what else?


Look into the software and make sure you havent turned it down by accident. Then go to the spaker on the start bar and click on the speaker and look at the volume control and set as necessary . look in software for creative software and check in there . Set as necessary.

My Altec lansing multi media ada 745 just stopped working all of a sudden. It doesn't work for all media ie. ipod, tv, computer. We can hardly hear it. I changed the fuse but it still doesn't work. Wh


unplug the power from the speakers, reseat the all the connections for the satellite speakers, ensure the power switch on both the subwoofer and the Right Front Speaker are in the ON position.

If that doesn't resolve the issue, then you are most likely going to need to replace the speakers, as the fuse is the only serviceable componet.

crazy, the speakers itself does not have drivers, but altec lansing does have utilities to optimize your speaker powers. you may also want to update your sound card's drivers.
