Speakers are connector in the back, the light green connector. If you have no sound, you need to download the drivers.
Here is the driver page from Dell for your computer. You can download and install the drivers you need:

I checked Logitech's website and they don;t have any downloadable documentation for this product. Anyway, let's just try and fix it.

First, make sure your left and right speakers are connected properly to the bass speaker.

Next, the wire from the bass should be connected to your soundcard's line out port (light green) or into your TV's audio lineout.

You can also adjust the volume of your bass separately on the right speaker.

Update me if this worked or if you are still having trouble.

Computer not recognizing speakers


There should be something in your sound, video, and game controllers that says something like "Realtek High Definition Audio". Double click on that, and make sure that it is enabled. If this entry is completely missing, reboot, and enter the BIOS setup (I'm not sure how that works on your specific PC) and make sure that the onboard sound is enabled there.

Computer speakers


I have experience with that model of speakers. When they give up the ghost, the volume is VERY low.Since they work well on another system, try this- check the volume properties to make sure nothing is set too low. Start>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices. Check the slider bars here, check in the Advanced area as well to make sure nothing is low and check the Speaker Volume as well. If all the bars are set to their maximum, there is something else we're missing. Let me know what you come up with.

Speakers


Hi c-king,

Ah, cavaet emptor the dreaded used computer. I'm going to assume that it had speakers that worked in it's previous life. Check all cable connections, make sure system is not muted, speaker control knob is on. In windows, most editions, follow: start, control panel, sounds and audio devices, volume tab-speaker settings-advanced settings. Here you can configure and choose your speaker setup(it may be set at headphones) i.e. 5.1, 7.1 etc.. Also check the audio tab to make sure you have a digital audio device installed i.e. Sigma Tel Audio or what ever is installed in your computer. I hope this helps a little, if not, hit me back, we have other options i.e. new audio drivers.

Rear speakers do not connect


Hi

Hi

Check out Dell WL6000 Setup and Quick Reference Guide - https://support.dell.com/support/edocs/acc/P121646/multlang/srg/DAO/srg_dao.pdf

Try re-synchronize the wireless link. If there is still no audio form the rear speaker, check if speaker mode in your computer is set to 5.1 channels. Click Start Control Panel Sounds and Audio Devices. Under Speaker Setting, click Advanced and select 5.1 surround sound speakers.
NOTE: The rear speaker will not have audio output if the source audio does not have surround sound.

Compaq wf 1907 monitor speakers--no sound


No sound from monitor speakers
If the built-in speakers on the monitor do not produce sound, perform each step that follows, testing for sound after each step, until you can hear sound:
  1. Close the software program you are using that is experiencing the sound problems. Test for audio using another software program.
    If the volume is adequate using another software program, the issue is with the computer, not the monitor. If the volume is still low, continue with this procedure.
  2. Check the cable connection. If the monitor-to-computer connection is a VGA cable (usually blue on both ends), an additional audio cable is needed between the monitor and the computer. Check that the audio cable is connected properly.
  3. Try to adjust the volume higher using the monitor front-panel volume button.
  4. Using the buttons on the monitor, navigate through the onscreen display (OSD) menu to find audio or speaker settings and enable the speakers.
  5. Click Start c01292216.gif , Control Panel , and then click Sounds and Audio Devices .
  6. From the Volume tab, check the Device volume, and make sure it is not muted.
  7. From the Audio tab, in the Sound playback field, click the Volume button. Make sure the audio device is not muted and the volume outputs are at adequate levels.
  8. If the monitor-to-computer connection is an HDMI cable, an additional audio cable might be needed, depending on the setup and configuration of the system. To find out whether an additional audio cable is needed, go to
HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Using HDMI Audio with a Desktop Computer


This document pertains to HP or Compaq PCs with an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) connector.
HDMI sends both audio and video through the same connection. If you want to hear audio from an HDMI connection, HDMI audio must be set through Windows . For example, if a computer is connected via HDMI to a monitor or TV and the proper HDMI audio settings are made, both audio and video will be sent to the display device.
Use the following steps to activate HDMI audio on your computer:

    NOTE: If you are setting up your computer for the first time, it may be easier to use a DVI connection or DVI-to-VGA adapter connection for the initial setup. Then, if you want to use an HDMI connection to connect a TV or monitor, activate sound for the HDMI connector using the steps that follow before connecting the HDMI cable to the TV or monitor.


    NOTE: After recovering the computer using the Recovery Manager, repeat this procedure to activate sound for the HDMI connector.

Step 1: Enabling HDMI sound in the BIOS
To hear audio through the HDMI connector to a monitor or display, enable the Onboard Audio setting in the computer BIOS settings by completing the following steps.

    NOTE: If you choose the default BIOS Setup options or upgrade the BIOS, you must repeat this procedure to enable audio for the HDMI connector.

  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. To enter the BIOS, turn on the computer and press the F10 key repeatedly until a BIOS Setup screen opens.
    A BIOS Setup screen opens.
  3. Press the right arrow key on the keyboard to select the Advanced tab.
  4. Press the down arrow key to select Onboard Audio , and then press the Enter key.
    Figure 1: Example of Onboard Audio menu

    An option window opens.
  5. Press the down arrow key to select Enabled , and then press the Enter key.

  6. Press the F10 key. Select Yes to save the default settings, and then press the Enter key.
