    I have a Vostro 200, and bought dell AX 210 speakers, which are not working, do i need to purchase speakers solely for that model, as I seem to keep coming across different opinions on this matter and the compatability?

    Hi Rachel,
    I tried the green port, as well as some of the others. Still the same, very faint. All volumes are as high as they can go.

    Any other thoughts?

    I ahve this problem also--have tried lots of different speakers

    I am not new to computers, and this Vostro 200 Dell desktop that my mother-in-law has is bumming me.

    I plugged the headset (no speakers) to the front green panel and no audio. Then I tried the green panel in the rear, no dice. I plugged the headset jack in all audio-related panels, front and rear, no audio.

    The headset works, as I can connect it to the front green panel of her other Dell (a Dimension 2400) and I get audio.

    Is the Vostro at fault?

    The only other difference between the two Dells is the Dimension runs XP, the Vostro is on Vista.

No you don't. As long as you can plug the speakers to the green port on the back of the computer, the speakers are powered and the volume knob on the speakers is turned all the way up. You should hear sound.

Also make sure the sound is not muted in windows.

Same problem, brand new Dell Vostro, hooked up Polk Audio speakers from former computer and get very, very faint music. Need a solution


if the sound is very faint. you can check the volume properties if it is set to maximize and also check the physical volume control on the actual speaker - also Disconnect Any Headphones That May Be Connected to the Computer - Check for and remove any headphones connected to the computer or speakers to prevent them from muting the external speakers.Click Start, and then click Control Panel.Double-click Sounds and Audio Devices. Click the Sounds tab. You can also try head phone if it is Crystal Clear on headphone then the problem is with the Speaker as Dell might need to replace it. :)

I have polk audio speakers that came with my old hp f50. I just purchased a new hp but can't get my speakers to work


The old speakers are not compatible. Your new computer is looking for an external power source for the speakers, the older polk speakers that came with Hp computers have none.

Make sure switch is on, try pluging it into an external MP3 player.
No sound would be coming from the speakers if nothing is playing on the computer also look at the computer volume as well as the speaker volume control.

My monitor quit working. I plugged up my old one but it has no on board speakers. I plugged in my old speakers (Polk Audio) but I can't make them work. Does anyone have a fix? Thank you.


Yes, just download or update your audio drivers from windows. You can probably just update your windows and it will do it for you. Just go to programs > windows update.

Next thing you can check is that all the cords are plugged up right.

Then right click on your speaker icon on the task bar (its usually by your clock on the computer) and click on Properties or Playback Devices (whichever you see on pop up menu. You can also get to the same place by opening Control Panel and clicking on the Sound icon).

So now you just click on the tab called Playback and make sure you pick the speakers that you want. Choose the plug, or place where the speakers are plugged in (front headphone jack, rear audio jack, or where ever you plugged them) and set them as the Default playing device by right clicking on it and choosing that option from the pop up menu.

You can explore around these tabs and can test your speakers out and what not. Just look under all these tabs and explore. Hopefully this will help you get them working.
