Question about HP (ZD929AA) Computer Speakers

2 Answers

No Volume Hello, I have been without sound on my computer for over a year now. When I moved from my house to my apartment for college, my speakers and volume went soundless. I've even bought new speakers to see if it would fix the problem. When I go to my control panel and go to adjust volume settings and such, it will not let me and says I do not have a mixer device available. I do not understand what I need to do to get my volume back. Please help me with any information you can. Thank you, Joe

Re: No Volume

This sound like a simple case of a driver issue. If you know the model number of your PC, go to the HP web site Fill in your PC details then download the sound driver and controller. This when installed should do the trick. Click Start>Run then type 'dxdiag', this will give a better clue as to the problem. If you cannot find drivers, come back here with your PC model number.

Hi: I have your white Creature II(?) speakers. I was using them on another computer for years and they worked fine. I have since taken them off of that computer and hooked them up to a computer in my...

Move the speakers back to the first computer, to ensure that they still work.

Make sure that the speakers are getting AC power.

Check that you have plugged them into the "line-out" (GREEN) conector on the sound-card.

Check that you have not "muted" the sound on your bedroom computer.

Move the "volume-control" slider away from "minimum".

Open Device Manager on the computer, to confirm that your audio-device is fully-loaded into Windows, with the correct device-drivers.
Having any "unknown" devices is a hint that some device-drivers have not been loaded.

Creativr Gigworks S750 Subwoffer intermittent sound

The S750 system is a great sounding one but unfortunatly like many similar systems all the amplifiers and power supplies are housed inside the sub box. This means they suffer badly from heat and vibration problems (they cook themselves or shake themselves apart). I have fixed a few S750 systems in the past but due to their complexity it's not for the faint hearted.

Standard speakers to the computer , low volume

You are getting low volume because there is no amplifier in those speakers. Computer speaker sets are powered -- there is an amp in one of them them which drives both speakers -- a computer audio output without an amplifier will only satisfactorily drive headphones.

Left computer speaker is unpredictable

Take no offense but after 8 years, you got your moneys worth. Unless you're good with the soldering iron and schematics, call it a great investment and update your speaker system. I imagine your computer is newer than the speakers and you can take advantage of some 5.1 surround sound! It's really great if you do any gaming,too.
Since you'll probably be getting rid of them anyway, you might want to crack it open and see if there's any loose wiring that can be fixed.
Thanks for using Please rate this tip accordingly. I wish there was a better solution but I usually get 5 years out of mine so I feel jealous. :-)

Logitech Z2300 rustling sound on volume knob movement

I would definately not open up the wired remote. As for the rustling sound, I had the same problem with my set (only with a hissing sound instead of rustling). Make sure the output on your computer is all the way up, as well as the volume on whatever media player you are using. That eliminated the sound for me, but it might be a different problem alltogether.
