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

My headphones will work but my desktop speakers will not why?


If your speakers work fine when plugged into the headphones socket on the front of the system, then there is no fault with them.
If the sound through the speakers is very low when plugged into the rear panel socket, that would suggest that you may be plugged into the line out socket rather than the speaker socket and that there is a mismatch of the impedence between the socket and speakers.
If you have three audio sockets on the rear panel, try the speakers in the second output socket (but not in the microphone socket) and see if it makes a difference.
You could try the same test using the headphones - do you still get good sound levels with the headphones when plugged in to the rear panel socket?
If neither the speakers nor headphones give good sound when plugged in to the rear panel, then you may have a problem with either the sound card if the sockets are on a separate PCI card, or with a poor connection on the cable to the socket header bracket from the motherboard pins for audio for integrated adapters.

Make sure you are plugged into the small green 3.5mm jack. if there is no sound whatsoever, then it is a failed amplifier. if there is staticky sound then you likely have a failed 3.5mm jack. Try plugging the speakers into a headphone port (if available) or disable to on-board sound device, puchase an add-in 3d soundcard and circumvent the issue.

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

Sound won't work without the earphones being plugged in


Make sure the speaker volume is turned up and also go into Control Panel, Sounds and make sure nothing is muted and all volumes are turned up. Also make sure the speakers are plugged into the sound jack in the back of the pc. The speakers also need power but since the light is on, it sounds like they are plugged in.

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.

Computer speakers no sound


I'm assuming Windows XP on a PC Desktop but the concepts are the same no matter what operating system.

1. Are your speakers plugged in to a power source?
2. Are they turned on?
3. Is the volume turned up on the speakers?
4. Are your speakers plugged into the (usually green) audio port on your computer? 5. Go into control panel, sounds and audio devices and check to make sure that sound is not on "mute".
5. On the Audio tab, check to make sure it shows a default sound device for each item. If not, either your sound card is malfunctioning or you need to download and install a current driver from the Acer website.
