Make sure that you plugged your speakers to their proper jack wherein the green plug goes to the speaker jack and the pink goes for the mic

Where do I plug in speakers


Speakers should plug in in the back of your computer. There should be three ports, one of which is green. Also check the volume on speakers if there are manual volume controls, or on the computer as well. Sometimes this is overlooked. If you go to Control Panel (assuming this is a Windows machine) there is a sound feature and you can test sounds there.

Speaker wires are pluged in on my dell inspiron 530 but not working help


    • 1 Make sure that your computer and speakers are plugged in, have power and are turned on. If the speakers are plugged in but don't appear to have any power, plug them into a different outlet. Some speakers are self powered and use a USB cable to supply power. Make sure that the USB cable of your speakers is connected securely to the USB port of your computer.
    • 2 Retest the sound. If you still don't have any sound, make sure the cable connecting the speakers to the computer (known as a 1/8-inch TRS cable) is plugged into the green audio output jack on the PC.
    • 3 If you're using self-powered USB speakers, remove the USB cable and plug it into a different USB port. If you're using outlet-powered speakers and have a working set handy, replace the suspected non-working speakers with the working pair to test.
    • 4 Navigate to the Microsoft Fix It troubleshooter (windows.Microsoft.com/en-US/windows/help/no-sound-in-windows) to automatically detect and fix sound playback or hardware problems. If that doesn't work, proceed with the next step.
    • 5 If you have an add-on sound card and none of the hardware or software fixes helps, you may have to replace the sound card. If you use on-board sound, it will probably pay to purchase an inexpensive sound card rather than a new motherboard. Check the system BIOS to determine whether you have inadvertently disabled your on-board sound.
    • 6 Navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Control Panel" and "Sounds and Audio Devices." Then click the "Volume" tab. If everything is grayed out, proceed to Step 7. If the "Mute" box is checked, uncheck it. In "Device Volume," make sure that your volume level is set to a comfortable volume level for your speakers.
    • 7 Click the "Sounds" tab. Under "Sound Scheme," determine whether "No Sounds" is selected. If it is, click "Sound Schemes." A drop-down list will appear. Select "Windows Default" as the scheme. To test your sound now, click on a sound listed below the "Program Events" window. The sounds will be indicated by a small "Speaker" icon located next to them. Left-click the sound once, then click the "Play" button. If you still don't hear sound, proceed with the next step.
    • 8 Click the "Audio" tab. Under the "Sound Playback" option, make sure your sound card is selected as the default playback device. Usually, only one device appears here, unless you have multiple playback devices installed.
    • 9 If everything is grayed out, you either do not have a playback device installed or your drivers are corrupted and need to be replaced. Drivers help hardware and software function together. Fix this by reinstalling the appropriate drivers. Do this by navigating to the "Start" menu and right-clicking "Computer." Then select "Properties" from the drop-down menu. Click the "Hardware" tab and then click the "Device Manager" button. The Device Manager will open.
    • 10 Look for either a red X or a yellow question mark listed under "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers." If a red X appears, right-click the device with the X and select "Enable" from the pop-up menu. Test your sound at this point. If a yellow question mark appears, right-click the device, click "Properties" from the pop-up menu, and then click the "Driver" tab on the window that appears. Next, click the "Roll Back Driver" button to roll back to the previous drivers that were functioning correctly. Restart your computer when prompted.
    • 11 As a last resort, you can uninstall and reinstall the device. To do this, right-click the device and select "Uninstall" from the pop-up menu. Restart your computer. Windows will automatically detect and install your audio device upon boot-up. If you still don't hear any sound from your computer speakers, contact a qualified computer technician.

My speakers are not working. The computer came with Realtek speakers but not with the normal jack. I believe it is a USB jack which I plugged into two USB ports above where the jacks would go. I'm not sure...


Check if your computer has a sound card available
Check on the back of your computer
Power up you set of speakers, some speakers doesn;t work without power
Check the speakers connections (between them)

Its most likely a settings problem or drivers missing maybe?

Hardly any need to buy a new port for speakers, unless its really broken.

try the speakers on another pc if they work fine there then its a problem in your pc, sound settings or drivers.

Check device manager
right click my computer select manage.
on the left side select device manager

note any yellow ! marks on sound devices or unknown devices.

Speakers are not working I have checked the plug in the mute buttons but no sound. When I plug them in I hear a sound but just a short beep nothing else


Hi sonfil55,

Do you know if you have the correct audio drivers installed? Go to your Control Panel, then System, and select the Hardware tab and then Device Manager. Scroll down to Sound, video, and game controllers. If you see anything in that list with a yellow exclamation point then you have a problem with your sound card (could be software).

The standard beep you're hearing generally appears when the system doesn't have the sound card installed properly and the built-in speaker takes over. Therefore, my guess is that there is a problem with the audio driver.

If you can provide the make and model of your computer I can direct you to the appropriate audio file drivers.
