Speakers not working, but cables all plugged in...
Well, I checked and double checked but I can't seem to find the problem. I made sure all the cables and wires were plugged in properly, including the power source and then connection to the computer. However, my Dell Dimension Desktop doesnt seem to have a jack for the speakers in the back of the tower, only in the front, next to the USB ports, which is where I plugged it in.
The problem is, when I go to Control Panel > Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices > Sounds and Audio Devices > Volume, it shows a message saying that there is "No Audio Device". What could possibly be wrong?
same problem my speakers is not working when i try to click anything on it its dere and im not able 2 click anyting

Re: Speakers not working, but cables all plugged in...
The problem is your computer may not sense the presence of your audio device, chances are your driver is either corrupted nor not yet installed.
go to my computer then right click go to properties, hardware, device manager,
under the device manager go to sounds and see if ther is any exclamation icon or anything , expand this icon and see if there is anything you see that has a yellow exclamation or question mark right click that icon and select scan for hardware changes , then update driver , better yet go to sound properties and see if you can roll back the driver, if you have the cd utilities for your computer, you can reinstall the driver again and after all this restart once again your computer

do you have 11 volts to turn over the car.
check the cable from the positive side to the starter than check the negative in the same way, make sure the cable wires tight.
make sure solenoid wires are tight, clean, oil free.
check the alternator connected and everything is secured.
check the coil wires from the positive side, and check the ground for proper ground, security wires, and oil free.
check the plug wires to the plugs and the coil for security.
You'll need to double check each item you replaced one by one to find the cause. I recommend (In the future) to replace wires, start & check engine. Replace fuel filter, start & check, coil then star & check.
For wires, make sure you have wires going to correct locations, check for possible damage to spark plugs (Cracks or breaks), and good connections.
Fuel filter, make sure it's in proper orientation as to flow direction as seen on the arrow stamped on the side, showing flow direction. and make sure you are not leaking fuel anywhere.
Coil... Again, check connections and proper wiring.
You might also wish to check for proper "Hot" (Bright Blueish spark) at the plugs.. Wear heavy insulated gloves or use well insulated grips to hold plugs against engine block to view spark.
A dimer orange spark = bad connection or faulty wire.
Also if you have a manual, they usually have detailed troubleshoot guides.
Best of luck on a speedy diagnosis!
Be sure you plugged the plugs into the right ports on the back of the stereo.
From the computer: ensure you plugged the cables into the Auxilary Out, or Out jacks of the sound card.
On the stereo: ensure you plugged the cables into any open set of Auxilary In jacks.
Once you verify your cables are plugged in correctly, verify the input on the stereo is set properly. Set your stereo's source or input to "Auxilary" or "Auxilary 1 or 2." This allows the stereo to pull input from the cables running into the appropriately selected Auxilary source.
That should help hopefully.
If you still can't get sound, double check your computer's sound card settings and be sure the sound card is working properly.
You have a connection problem. The terminals need to be completely cleaned & tightened as well as the ends of the battery cables where the ground & the main power leads terminate. It's best to remove te Neg. (-) cable first & attach last when dealing with the battery.
Double check and clean the contacts on any small wires running from the Pos (+) terminal or from the connecting spot at the starter solenoid & make sure they are not broken or burned. A 12 Volt test light should help you find why the voltage isn't getting into the electrical system.
Lastly, double check the voltage on the battery to be sure it's fully charged, test your alternator to make sure your entire system is working properly make sure the battery is connected properly, some batteries have reversed post.
1. Double check the connections at BOTH ends of the wires- at the distributor and at the plug.
2. Make sure each spark plug boot has proper connection.
3. Double check the plugs to make sure that they are all gapped correctly and no contamination.
4. Hold each spark plug upright and make sure that the ceramic insulator near the tip isn't loose and sliding down and possibly covering the metal tip..(had this happen more than once)
5. Check for spark at each plug (be careful)
6. Open the distributor cap and double check all the exposed metal connectors are clean.
7. buy one extra plug and change out the suspect plug.
You will pobably need to load the driver for your system.
Go to Dell Support and click on the Drivers & Downloads box.
Follow the prompts to select your specific system model. you will end up at a page that lists all the available drivers for your computer. Click the + sign next to "Audio" and you can select "Download Now".
You might have to reinstall the software that came with the speakers since you had to wipe your computer clean when the virus was on there. The speakers will not work until the software is installed back on your computer.
When you replaced the plugs, are you sure that they were gapped properly? If not, double check that and also whether they seated properly- also put anti-seize compound on the threads in case you failed to the first time. Also check the fit of the plug wires to make sure they attach to the plug properly. When you pull them off you should hear a little popping sound. If the vehicle doesn't idle smoothly, you will need to confirm that you have not put the wrong wire on th wrong plug. Make sure you remove one plug and one wire at a time to avoid this. Check the fit of the plug wire at the distributer end as well.
Here are a few basic steps. they seem abit logical but just have a double check on them.
1. Check that you speakers are plugged in.
2. That the wire going into the back of the computer is going into the green imput (that is for the speaker sound to come out)
3 If you have a combination of speakers make sure they are all wired properly.
If your sure all the wiring is right. Check to see if the volume on the status bar at the bottom left of your desktop is turned on. This will be a small speaker double click on it, check to see if the volume is turned on.
If all this is correct it may be a driver problem. If so come back and let me know and I will guide you through the drive troubleshooting for this.
