Hooked it up to my receiver which works perfectly for other devices. Cycled through every setting on the receiver...none work. I just have the red and white hooked into the back properly. I am pretty tech...

The modern computers are set up like an amp with different speaker sets. Windows allows for this under normal circumstances, but when you plug in this turntable the computer fails to find the correct speakers.
- Goto the windows start button - Control panel - Sound - Playback - you will see a number of speaker options and at least one meter that is moving up and down with the sound which you can't hear at the moment. You can do one of two options to fix this.
1) Easiest option, but may cause trouble should you change or add to your physical speakers in the future. - Double click on the speaker with the moving meter, and disable it. A new speaker is then chosen, and if that isn't the right one then do the same thing until the right speaker combo is selected.
2) The best option, as it won't cause future conflict problems. - Ignore the speaker with the working meter. Go to another speaker and double click on it. - Click advanced Tab - Click Test - If you don't hear anything, then move onto the next speaker. If you do hear a sound, then this is the right speaker configuration for your computer. You may have more than one sound card, and likely more than one input. - Once you find the correct speaker, then go back to the main speaker window and single click the speaker to highlight it. - Near the bottom of the window is a pull down menu to make that speaker your default. Do this, and all sound will work.
I can't help you with the amp question, as my ION recorder doesn't have the red/white output jacks for the stereo amp. The only thing I can suggest is it might be the setting on your amp where you choose your input mode.

Problem hooking up bose speakers

mcdevito75 here, The HP speakers that came with your computer work fine, the bose speakers work fine on your other computer, the plug on the Bose speakers is a little shorter than the HP speakers, and only the right Boss speaker is working, HMM, Check the Bose speakers, both of them for a volume control 1 of them may need adjustment on this particular computer. If that"s not it, I would speak to a Radio Shack, Staples etc.

Can dell speakers work with a hp computer xp windows

Speakers are speakers. The label on them makes absolutely no difference. Use them wherever you need to.

I have bought my hp compaq 610 laptop one months ago but my laptop speaker is not working but with headphone it is working what should i do?

Do you hear any sound? If it is faint, try stopping and restarting the audio services. (for Windows Vista and 7) Click the Start button and type Run, click on Run. (alt press and hold the Windows key and then type r)
Type services.msc in the window. Then scroll through the list and select and click Stop for all audio services. Then repeat this but click Start for each one. Click Apply and then OK.

If you do not hear any sound, open the device manager and see if there is an exclamation point or an x (usually in a triangle) at the audio device lines. Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound. Right click on the line and choose Properties and try updating the driver. Check Windows Update and HP Update for any available driver.

I hope this helps.

(if these don't work, the wire from the motherboard to the speakers may be damaged/disconnected in the laptop case.)

I assume from your message that you mean you can't print a document from your computer or send and receive faxes. Chances are, you'll have to reinstall the printer, just the same way as when you first bought it and hooked it up to your PC. Also, the operating system on your computer is going to make a difference. For example, if you originally hooked the printer up to a Windows XP computer and now you're hooking it up to a Windows Vista computer, you'll need to install different print drivers.

I don't know if you have the original manuals or disks that came with the printer. If not, a good place to start would be to download the manual from That'll at least get you started:

Manuals page

It would be really helpful if you were to post what steps you took to connect your printer to your PC once you got the printer out of storage. Also, how long had it been in storage, are you hooking it up to the same PC or a different PC than before you put it in storage, and are you hooking it up to the PC differently now than before (printer cable vs. USB cable, for example)?

Compaq presario speaker hook ups

a brand new HP 360 comes with no manual $1000 in a box.
that is because its at HP for free , you are not at HP but at fixya.
why be here? we are NOT HP.
the manuals are all there, one model might have like 30 manuals.
depends on what you are doing, they even covery up to 8 windows versions used, not in 1 manual but 8. (or 4)
speakers 101:
so KBL: are those external speakers? you never said that.
what is your service tag full model number it is not 2500
i get no hits at REAL HP for that number.
ZE 5000 NX9010 Series???? how can it be both #?????
hp has like 10,000 models of PC for 35 years
we can NOT GUESS them ever here, the service tag must be presented by you or all answers will be wrong.
for sure.
the speaker jacks on PC can be 2 channel, 3.1. 5.1, 7.1 and up.
we have no idea what you have there, at all. period
I get 1 hit, NX9010 at HP.
so if that is the model prefix (missing P/n on tag shown)
do know this that one model like this can have 5 different motherboards used, even for sound.
some have low end sound chips other higher end. more jacks.
seen. no photos for your jacks by you pressented.

so connect the speakers to the green jack.
speakers out. 2 channels.
this Laptop NX9010 came with zero external speakers
so you previous owner added them.

no JBL part numbers stated of the 1000s made.
the nx9010 front most 3.5mm phone jack is green
and is for head phones,
to use speakers they must be amlified speaker
you buy those and it has 2 speakers, a cross jumper from one to the other, and from the main speaker (has volume knob)
there is one cable from it to the PC green jack 3.5mm
then the main speaker needs its power pack connected with power on, this turns on the magic Amplifier inside.
this makes the speaker work on any pace made from 1990s to
off the green jack only.

then set the speaker to 1/2 volume
and then at the PC raise volume till happy.
that is it for 2 channel technology audio.

some PC have more fancy setup.
but here is your book free to read for 14 years
most of this PC are dead now, the CFFL lamps long ago burned out and screen dead forever.
read page 50.

all the other books this pC are here. every one.
