Question about Boston Acoustics BA735 Computer Speakers
The dell speakers work
Look for speaker icon in task area (right side of task bar). If there is a red x on it it means the speakers are muted or the sound device drivers are not loaded or the sound device is disabled. Click on speaker icon and go to mixer. Check for muting. If it says sound device is not present then open Control Panel by clicking on Start or Windows button in lower left corner, go to Control panel, often abbreviated "CP" then click on system then on device manager and see if Sound, video and game controllers has an audio device listed. If not you'll have to acquire the drivers from the dell driver download site and apply them. If it does and device shows disabled, then click on it and enable it. If there is no sound device then check for an "Other device" entry in device manager. It'll usually have a yellow ! on it. That means a device was identified by plug and play but the system could not find a driver for it. Go to windows update service in CP and run find updates. If Windows finds an upated sound driver, install it. It will install and plug and play and set up device. Otherwise off to www.dell.com with the service tag number of the computer---found on back or top of system. This will lead to the downloads and drivers page for your specific box. Look down list for Sound drivers, download and install them. Usually with dell it downloads as an executable (Rnnnnnn.exe) and all you have to do it click on the file name to run and install it. After download If in Vista or Windows 7 I always right click on file name and chose "Run as administrator" whenever installing like that. That makes sure you have adequate permissions to do the install and have to install correctly.
Also it goes without saying to make sure you have plugged the audio in lead to speaker set into the correct sound plug on back plane of system (usually the green one).
