I have an older computer and it won't show that it sees the speakers at all. It says the drivers re installed correctly and the speakers turn on. I've tried unplugging ad plugging them back in and restarting the computer.
Try accessing the "Devices" in your 'My Computer' settings. Under the devices the computer may not know that you wish to use those speakers. Even if you have the proper drivers installed, they may also require a driver update. Access the Audio Drivers under "Devices" and look for an Update button. This will search online to find any updates, and or patches that may remedy the problem.

I just purchased a Dell XPS 8500 with Windows 8 and decided to keep using my old Harmon Kardon HK 206 speakers because I'm quite satisfied with these speakers. When I hooked them to my new PC, Windows 8 recognized them right away. The speakers work great on my new PC. Try going to the Control Panel and see if your speakers were recognized. (On my PC they're referred to as "Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio). That's due to the default drivers in Windows 8. As long as you see speakers in the control panel, you should be OK. In that case you should check your connections. If you don't see speakers in the control panel, go back one screen and select add a device and let Windows 8 scan for any device that it hadn't recognized before.
Hi , The best thing to do is go to your control panel , and find the sound icon and this will bring up a page with options like speakers , sound , etc. click on prop. and see if your speakers are there , than get back to me and let me know what happens ...............................good luck Roy
Have you check all the Volume setting on you computer?
On the lower right side look for the computer Icon check if there is a red X on the speaker Icon, if there is then it can be that here is something wrong with the speaker driver or it does not detect the speakers.
If you do not see the speaker Icon then the Driver for the Audio card is not installed on the computer and you may need to re install that Audio Card Driver to be able to regain the audio from your Speakers.
Also the speakers should connect to the Green Audio Jack behind the computer, if it is then still no Audio you can try the Audio Jack in front of the computer as well to check the Audio Card in the Machine, if the front and back audio jacks do not detect nor produce sound when the speakers are connected then re installing the driver for the Audio card may work, unless during the installation an error shows that the there is no audio device detected then it means the Audio Card is busted.
Let us hope not since it is very seldom an Audio Card could go busted.
I hope this helps.
Have nice day,
Means windows cannot find your sound card and has not installed drivers for it. Thus no sound. Need to reinstall sound card drivers. First check if hardware / device manager shows error state for sound card. ie yellow circle with exclamation mark. If so delete those drivers and restart to reinstall. If you're lucky it will install correctly next time. Otherwise you need to install drivers yourselves from m/b or sound card driver CD
you should be able to activate the sound by checking in the right bottom corner to see if the speaker icon is there, if it is then click on it and increase the volume. If it is not showing go into control panel and click on sound. see if your device is recognized, if not you may have to install a driver for the sound to work. Hope this helps.
You may need to install the audio drivers for those systems. If the sound is built onto the mainboard, you'll need the motherboard model number to help locate the drivers online. You can look for them yourself through a search engine, or if you'd like, get back to me with the model numbers of the motherboards, and I will locate your drivers. The model number of the motherboard should be printed directly on the motherboard itself.
Hi Miong u,
Untill you install the sound drivers, your computer won`t recognise your sound card.
Go HERE (http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df-external/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=828&OSFullName=Windows*+2000&lang=eng&strOSs=19&submit=Go%21) and download, and install your audio drivers.
You can download the driver from intel website depending on the O.S Might I also suggest you download your chipset drivers as well. Thanks for using Fixya. Do rate the solution as "Fixya" if 100% satisfied.
ok if im getting what your saying
the port of the computer for line in is not recognizing the sound of your sterio
ok there should be extra jack on speaker wire that should goto line in on computer
computers dont find these jacks cause there already predetermind when the cards drivers was installed
hook the jack to line out speaker out port if the speakers are powered find the power on them turn up
then goto your sound setup get to your volume controls and find the volume controls that are muted and or turned down even in advanced settings
if you recently changed your sound card you also want to be in the sounds setup and make sure that the propper software driver is connected and not the old one still in its place sometimes new drivers dont set the old drivers aside but it adds to the sound setup list
you will find the sound setup in control panel
also there is that slight chance you will have to reinstall software again
hope this has some help for you seeing i have no way of actually seeing the speakers in person and how they work
