Question about Logitech X-240 Computer Speakers

Computer announces ''Jack is unplugged'' when the computer is

Idle for a while When I walk away from computer for a while and then come back to start using it again, the Realtek Audio manager shows a " a jack has been unplugged" bubble even though nothing has been touched.
To listen to any music or hear computer sounds for incoming email or anything sound related I have to reboot the system.
I do have my computer on a power savings setting after an hour of inactivity to save energy. Would his be causing it?

    Hi Coss71

    I removed all of the "energy" savings sttings but without success. The "a jack has been unplugged" bublle popped up after the computer sat idle for a while.

    I could not locate the ports settings option you described. Any idea?

    Still open to suggestions.

Yes, that very well can be causing the problem.
There are a number of ports that have individual power settings. If you look at them it will have the option "allow computer to turn this device off to save power"

Saving power is great for a laptop running on batteries, but not really necessary on a desktop PC that is plugged in.
Yes you will save a little power (so it can be a "green" thing to do) but you are not going to make a noticable difference in your power bill.

To test this, turn off all of your power savings settings (such as system standby after so long, hibernate etc) and see what the speakers do.

In all my years of doing computers, I have had more problems with systems "re-awakening" then I save by reducing power comsumption.

    Go into Device manager (right click My Computer, Properties, Computer Hardware, Device Manager).

    In here you can see each device. You may have to expand the device tree to get to the specific part. Once there, right click, or double click the device to get to the details. If a device has a seperate power setting, you will usually see it on the right most tab. It will say power management. In here, you'll see the setting for allowing the computer to manager the power to that device, take the check off, Apply and OK.

    Hope this helps. Let me know what you find. I know chasing power settings can be a real hair puller.

yes they can, simply connect the jack to the green port on the back of your desktop, or headphones plug. You will not be blown away by the power, but it's ok.

My computer speakers just went silent in the middle of a song

Do the speakers have power? Check the fuse.

Where are you plugging your headphones?
Where are the speakers connected? Is it the same jack as the headphones?

Have you tried plugging the speakers into the headphone jack vs the soundcard?

5.1 GMX ProMedia Issue

The jacks on the back are probably for an amplifier output and you probably have had the speaker wire stripped too long possibly shorting out the amplifier as this is a common problem, if not stripped too long it may have just failed, also you need to check by unplugging from back of computer and hook up to a walk man or something with a headphone jack, see if still dead, might also be the cable from the computer to the speakers. Good luck. :-)

Hp speaker problem. Please help

Check the jack at the back of the computer see if it is inserted fully. if it is give it a spin between your fingers and wiggle a little to see if sound balances out. But don't forget there are several places to balance your speakers in your operating system on your computer. And what program you are using for playback. if the are self amplifing speakers unplug the jack completely out of the back of the computer. and plug in a pair of headphones and listen. If it is balanced there it is from the cable to the speakers. If it is not balanced it is the soundcard or the software. at least this will give you a place to start.
