I was deleting things in add remove hardware and now my logitech x 240 speakers have stopped working, i also had a yellow ? appear in device management but i have downloaded something that seems to have...


There are two possibilities here which may be causing your problem.

Either you have not gone back in and enabled sounds in the control panel or you need to reinstall the speakers in the hardware manger and set the options to use them. That is "if" you have not deleted your sound card drivers?

to enable sounds, go to control pane, and then sounds and double click on it. Check to see if there is a sound sceme chosen (i.e. windows default). If there is no sceme chosen and its greyed out, click on the arrow and choose windows default and save it. It will tell you that your previous sceme may be lost if not saved first and ignore that warning - just continue.

Click the test option next to the sceme chosen and see if you can hear it?

If not, then continue troubleshooting and move to the next possible problem which is reinstallation of your speakers through the hardware manager.

Go to the control panel and find install a device or hardware manager (depending on which version of windows you are using). click on it. Windows will try and find the device you wish to install, if it locates the speakers then great just follow the prompts until installed. Then make sure the sound it turned on as indicated above and your done!

If it does not auto find the speakers you want to install, change the options to locate the item you wish to install yourself. Scroll the manufacturers drivers that came with your version of windows and find Logitech and the type of speakers you have which you want to install.

then follow the prompts to install the speakers. You might want to go back into the sounds icon in your control panel and check the optional tabs to make sure the type of audio device you are using is also the chosen default in your pc. (i.e. headphones, desktop speakers, or surround sound system ect.)

Hi, I have ViewSonic VX2235wm-5 22"


It appear the monitor has been connected to another system unit than the default. disconnect the entire systems and reconnect altogether, restart the computer to allow the unit to recognise the new monitor. should diplay possible soluiton, else follow the instrcutions below

1.locate the control panel where the options of systems setting is displyed.
2. a click should dispaly a list among which is device speaker options
3. the computer speaker could be updated by clicking to install drivers or codes acquirable from the network.

alternately
1. click on the hardware icons located after locating and clicking into control panel.
2. on the list of add delete hardware provides the option to attempt to delete the speaker codes
3. a delete of the speaker drivers on system restart would prompt the user to update the speakers. A click on the prompt should acquire the necessary installation kit patches from an internet connection if any.

The speaker are plugged in but the computer does not seem to recognize that they are. It also says there is no audio device and no drivers are installed


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

My speakers arent making a sound .


It is not software for the speakers you need.

you should check your hardware on the computer first.

Call up the volume control and check that none of the "MUTE" boxes are ticked.

If you get an error starting the volume control you may have deleted the drivers for your sound card.

You should also check out your hardware from the control panel, system, hardware, device manager. If you see any exclamation marks by any hardware that is where you should start.

My harmon/kardon speakers do not work


You seem to have uninstalled the driver for your soundcard, Identify the soundcard and find the drivers and install it back (Easier option is to get in touch with your hardware manufacturer) - Alternately : you can do a system restore to a date when it was working well. (on WinXP - Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore)

Chances are that when you deleted Soundmax, you deleted the drivers as well. I am going to assume that you 'deleted' the "Soundmax" entry from your Add/Remove Programs console or chose "Uninstall" from the Soundmax folder in your start menu.

The problem is not your speakers. The problem is the audio hardware. I'm willing to bet that you don't have any drivers installed for your Soundmax audio hardware.

More often than not, when you uninstall the software for your audio hardware, it also removes the drivers for the audio hardware.

I would try re-downloading the drivers for your Soundmax hardware and reinstall them.

Soundmax Drivers:
http://www.techspot.com/drivers/driver/file/information/3312/

I am also aware that this Soundmax chip was licensed to a different company by Realtek. (They designed the chip.) You can also try the Realtek AC'97 audio chip drivers. There may be a few differences in the way the software works, though. Here you go:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=23&PFid=23&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false#AC

I myself would recommend the Realtek Drivers. However, I also have an experience with this particular chipset where I installed the drivers in Windows XP Service Pack 1 or below and they worked just fine. But if I installed the drivers in Windows XP Service Pack 2, the system just reboots itself over and over again unless I use Safe Mode and uninstall the drivers.

Instead of fighting with that issue, however... I just put in a different soundcard and deactivated the onboard audio hardware in the motherboard's BIOS.

Just a heads up on that...

Good luck with this. Let us know what happens if you need more help.
