I have surrond sound speakers thats loud but wend


I had an issue like that with one of my dell desktops too. The speakers were very quiet. I turned up the volume on the speakers, turned up the volume in windows. Unisntalled and Reinstalled audio drivers, I eventually assumed that the speakers were just junk. After buying a soundcard (I was originally using onboard sound), I discovered that the speakers were much louder through the soundcard than through the onboard audio.

There are several reason for this issue.
1. Power switch on CPU(Tower) might get locked while pressing.
2. SMPS might be old one.

1. Need to check the Power switch with the help of Multimeter.
2. Need to change the SMPS and check whether it is working.

Can Dell speakers be used with HP computers? I recently purchased a HP computer. Can I use my Dell speakers? I can turn them on and the light comes on, but can get no audio.


Well speakers are speakers so to "Speak" ... As long as the INPUT connections are the same, then, there is NO reason why they should not work.

My dell dimension 8400 has no volume I tried new speakers and the volume is not muted how do i get it to work


Click on the speaker icon in the lower right side of the screen, and set the volume control to high. If no help, do you have amplified speakers? Line or headphone outputs are too low to drive speakers directly.

Hooking up speakers


On the back of your computer tower (that thing with the power button on the front) you should see three small headphone jack looking thingies, with colored bands around them. Your speaker cord plugs into the green one, if you have a microphone, it goes in the pink one.

Your speaker set should have a wall wart type power supply, plug that into any convenient outlet, and plug the other end into the proper jack on your speakers.

The volume knob on your speakers is also an on-off switch, turn it on.

Dell GX280 Dextop: Very Low volume on Headphones


Are these USB headphones? If so, you must install them first and let the Device Manager confirm they are properly installed. Next, go to sound properties in control panel, select the headphones, and crank the volume within Windows. Finally, crank the volume controls on the headphones themselves. If they are not USB headphones, then the same sound jacks that allow speakers to be connected should allow the headphones to work.

Dell GX280 speaker problem..??


Go into the device manager and see if the sound card drivers are installed. If not then you'll need to install the drivers for them.
