Hi,
I'm not sure if this is the problem or not 'cause I have a Mac BUT- in the system preferences file there may be something close if you look at the drop down menus. Perhaps under My computer you'll find it.
Anyhow there should be a clickable option where you can choose your sound default...maybe it's listed under hardware. The default setting is usually 'built in speakers' but I'm thinking you should be able to click on an alternative such as external speakers or something.
I wish I could be more exact- if you only had a Mac! I know for sure someone with a PC will come along and be your knight in shining armour though.
good luck
K

I plugged my speakers into the back of my computer and I still cant get any sound. What should I do?


Verify that the speakers are plugged into the correct color coded plug in back. Verify that the speakers are plugged into a power source Verify that the speakers are on Verify that the speakers are turned up on the actual speakers Verify that your sound is not muted in windows (Control Panel > Hardware and Sound (vista) or just Sounds in XP > Adjust system volume. You can also try opening Windows Media Player and unmuting/turning volume up there. Try several files, mp3s, videos. make sure its working. If you still have no sound try updating the drivers for your sound card, you can figure out what type of sound card you have from the control panel, system, device manager, sound. then just go to that companys website and search for your card to download the latest.
If you do all of this you should have working sound... if you still dont then that would indicate the speakers or a cable is defective, you may want to do some trial and error with known good cables/speakers.

No sound comes out of the speakers. They previously worked fine prior to moving


If you have a soundblaster or onboard sound card, be sure that the cord coming from the speakers to the computer is plugged into the green inlet in the back, not the black one. If you plugged into the black inlet there will be no sound from the speakers.

Sound problems


your speaker connections are plugged in incorrectly or the speakers are not plugged in and powered on.
check the back of the computer where your speakers are plugged in and make sure you speakers are plugged into the right colors

No sound through external speakers


Although some monitors have built in speakers, most people have stand alone speakers. If the old monitor had built in speakers and now it is unplugged you won't hear sound. Even if the speaker cable is still plugged into the sound output on the back of your computer, the monitor must be plugged into an electrical outlet to have power.

I'd recommend buying a new set of external speakers if this is the situation.

If you never had speakers built into the monitor then normally changing monitors would make no difference whatever. The only explanation that makes sense under those conditions is that in the process of replacing the monitor, you dislodged the speaker jack from the sound output on the back of the computer.

Make sure your external speakers have electrical power plugged in, the power is on (green light on at least one speaker lights up) and the volume on the speakers is at least half way up.

Unplug the speaker from whatever hole it is plugged into and plug it firmly back in and test sound.

If still no sound other than some static on the speakers, try every single hole on the back of the computer that the jack will fit properly and test for sound.

Let me know if you have further questions.
