Question about Altec Lansing ATP 3W Computer Speakers

1 Answer

No sound Hi, I just purchased a set of speakers and can't get any sound from them. I believe I have everything hooked up correctly. When I take out the cord from the back of the pc, I get a loud buzzing sound, but when I plug it in, the sound is gone and the speakers don't work. I don't have the user guide, there wasn't one in the box. Any suggestions or should I just take it back? Thanks!

Re: no sound

Try a diferent port in the back you may not have them in the right one plug a dif set of speakers in to make sure the port is good
if it is then I would say you got a bad set

It is clear in your statement that your speaker is not working anymore. Consider opening it and then check the wiring inside the speaker if it has lost connection and solder it.

Otherwise buy a new one this will get raid of the problem completely.

Hope it helps..

Have a nice day!

I have tried everything I can think of to fix the problem, but finally gave up and called the person who I purchased it from last June. As I had been using a headset, I don't think we ever tested if the speakers worked with this PC. He is coming to look at it tomorrow. I seem to have ruled out everything except the connection ports on the PC. I hope that he can solve the problem tomorrow.

Take it back to the store where you purchased it, and tell them to let you hear for yourself that there is sound. If there is indeed sound, than you might have the speakers hooked up wrong, or the speakers are just no good. Often times, the speakers are plugged into the wrong port in the computer.

I believe your old sound card may be of higher quality than your new one, I had the same problem years ago what I did was this, I ran my speakers through an old dedicated dubbing cassette player out of an old kenwood stack stereo then into the computer, the cassette has a mild adjustable preamp when in record, you will have to put the deck on record the rest of the time with a blank tape- any old cassete deck will work.(thrift store) and your going to need a couple parts from radio shack. If you have the know how I suggest switching the audio cards out, drivers etc and / or seeing if you can have them both plugged in without an issue. If issue then try cassette then call and complain to the computer company for installing sub standard equipment.

computer audio output-> line in cassette->line out cassette-> line to speaker input

good luck

Sound Problems on my Dell

It should be having onboard sound card, check from Bio's setup whether the Audio is ON. also check in control panel sound and media devices and check the volume maybe it's very very low or on mute. Also try with other speakers

No sound no nothing !

make sure :
1- the the speakers are connected to the sub woofer correctly
2- the sound driver is installed on your computer ( you can check that from Device Manager )
3- that you connected the sub woofer jack to the correct jack of your computer
4- the volume parameter is set to highest in your computer

if nothing works out then i suggest connecting the speakers to another device ( like ipod or mp3 player )

if either this won't work then the speakers are obviously corrupted :)
