If the speakers are simple 2 piece or 3 piece ones, Then there is no need for additional discs ( provided you have installed your basic sound drivers). If they are still not working, Then go to control panel and then to Sound options. Check if the speakers are enabled.

How do I get power

Older passive computer speakers do not need a power supply.
Modern active speakers might use batteries but mostly need a power supply that plugs into the mains power outlet and provides the right voltage, current and polarity the speakers need.

Some low-powered active speakers simply plug into the computer usb.

What is rating of Spin 50 Power Module. Lost mine

Should it be a power supply that outputs AC and converts to DC inside the speaker case, or is it a wall adapter the outputs DC straight to the built in amplifier?
Some speakers have the voltage and polarity for the plug on the back of the speaker where the power lead plugs in. As they are only small speakers of probably a couple of watts it may only need about 2 Amps or less. Higher current is fine as the amp will only use what it needs to work correctly but I would'nt go below 2 Amps.

Couldn't hear any sound from the speaker


Please check first whether power is there in speakers or not? If speakers are okay then please go to control panel and click on sound devices.If the properties are coming faded ,this means the sound driver is not installed.
Check the sound driver needed for your computer or publish the model no.,make of the computer and the issue will be resolved.

My speakers are not working. just plugged them in for the first time

well a couple things. First, does your speakers require a power source (do you need to plug it into the wall)? If it does, then make sure it's plugged in. Okay, now step two; I'm not sure what you are plugging your speakers too, so I will assume the computer since the picture associated with your post are computer speakers. Make sure the audio plug is going into the GREEN audio port on the back of the computer. If still no sound, check your speaker volume, and your computer volume (lower right speaker icon in your task bar.) If this still doesn't work, I would suggest replacing or exchanging. :D

Connecting computer speaker to a receiver

Which output section of the Denon are you using? Tape monitor out? And are you getting sound through the speakers (not the PC speakers) that are attached to the Denon speaker terminals?

Tin like sound from small speakers only. No sound

switch on your speaker set in full volume unplug it from computer touch the plug , as you touch you can hear a sound ( loud hum sound) if the speaker is working. If okay then check the right jack, plug it into green color jack. you can try if your computer is okay use a headphone plug it into the jack in PC , if the computer is okay you may hear the sound.

Speakers Plugged In Right But Wont Turn On??

If the power light on the speakers isn't on, then the power supply going to the speakers is either in a bad outlet (test the outlet with a voltage meter) or the plug isn't firmly seated. Best of luck in your new home and hope this solves your problem.

I'm guessing that you just bought these, plugged them in to your computer, and no sound comes out. If that is the case, is very simple to fix. Your computer is currently set to use it's built-in speakers. You have to go to control panel, and change it to use the configuration you have purchased: 2 external speakers, USB connection, no woofer. I think you can find it in XP under "Sound". You test your new configuration, and your speakers should work--then save your configuration.

Pure-Fi Anywhere Speakers

Well I am not sure where exactly you want them to work but there are a few options that you can concider. First off the sell power inverters that allow you to plug into the cigarette lighter in your car and you are able to plug things into your car that normally only work in the house.. The main point of my answer is that they are powerd speaker that have to be plugged into an outlet to work, my best suggestion to you would be to take them speakers back and buy a set that do not require to be plugged in. If your intention is to use them on a laptop the make speakers that plug in usb and use the small current that runs through the usb cable to power the speakers, but that will cut into your laptop battery life. If you go to a computer store and I am not talking about Best Buy I mean a real computer store they will have knodgeable staff that will be able to show you the best solution to your problem.
I hope this helps.
