    speaker is on but its not working ?

  • seabug2 Jan 24, 2009

    I plugged a "mini phone plug to Rca jack adapter" to the speaker output on my computer and ran RCA jack stereo cables to the audio input (CD) on my sound system.

    The hum is apparent even at lower volume and it doesn't just come from the woofer, it comes from all speakers.

It might be the input on the speakers, whatever you are playing it where it works probably has a different input than your desktop, you might want to check and switch around where you are plugging it in or get a sound converter

    know it is there just not want to give it sound or as weird as it
    sounds they might be behind a firewall. if you have more than one anti
    virus like malware protect or something that might block inputs check

SOURCE: Computer is not recgonizing my speakers?

Check the speakers with any other device. Probably the speakers are not working or if they work fine, connect any other working speaker to your system and check whether if they work or not.
If the other speakers also don't work you probably have a faulty port.

Sound went out on speakers


Make sure your speakers actually work by unplugging the speaker jack, turn the volume up the high, wet your fingers and touch all the connections at the same time. You should get a ground humm. If you do get the humm then the next step is to go to my computer, right click on it and go to "properties". Depending on your operating system, you have to locate "Device Manager". Once open look for any devices that have a mark on them indicating that they are not functioning (in this case it would be in your sound device). Reinstall the drivers for the sound card if they show as not working, or go to the drivers tab of the sound card properties and see if you can fall back to a previous driver (windows update supplies driver updates that in many cases prove to be the wrong one, don't use Windows update for drivers). If everything looks good for the sound card in the device manager and your speakers are working then you may need to install a sound card. Good luck

WHAT IS A SOUND CARD?


Hello breonna, hi, a sound card is a device or a circuit board on a card where this plugs on a PCI slot on a motherboard. This card produces sound and sends the sound to a speaker for amplification. a1240a2.jpg

My computer can play audios and videos but cannot produce any sound and i have tried to play both CDs, Flash and some music saved inside still the same problem occurs. what can i do? thanks.


THIS WILL HAPPEN IF:
-if your speakers are plugged in the wrong hole
-if the power adapter from the wall to the speaker fails
-if the speakers are muted in windows sounds properties (double click speaker icon by clock on desktop to check-making sure the MUTE box is NOT checked)
-if the sound card drivers are corrupt or not installed
(right click "right click "my computer" left click "properties"- click the "hardware" tab at the top- click on the "device manager" button
scroll down to where it says "sound and audio" with a + next to it. if there is a yellow ! or ? it means that your software drivers for the sound are corupt or missing and will need to be reinstalled using the install disk or downloaded drivers from the dell website which are free.
Regards.

Play something through the line are the speakers working, is ther eany humm or nasty roiugh humming bbbrp sound? No? is there a red light on speakers to indicate they have power? no? check that there is a on off switch at the rear and it is set to on.

Speakers not working.


The easy way to trouble shoot sound problems is to plug the speakers into another device like a portable player and see if they produce sound. If you had sound from your portable device but no sound from your speakers then your speakers have died. You can see if the computer is producing any sound by pluging your headphones from the portable into the computer and see if you have sound.

Speakers work...just not when plugged into desktop


Hi, what you probably need to look for is driver for your sound card which is built-in into your motherboard. Try to get the model no. of your mb and proceed to their website to download appropriate drivers. Drivers are OS specific. If your sound card in a plug-in PCI card, then you would have to check the chipset number or the sound card model no. to get the right driver. Hope this helps.
