Plug the speakers into your iPod. Any sound?
You may need to maximize the volume-control on the iPod *AND* on your speakers, but you should hear some sound, if the speakers are working.

Try a different set of speakers on your computer.

Make sure that you have not "muted" nor "minimized" the sound on your computer.

Make sure that the speakers are plugged-in to the "green" socket on your computer.

Sound is very low,it's a new computer&speakers. The speakers are Integrated 5.1 Channel Audio and Dell Speakers.

check properly that the system sound is properly configured and check that the all the speakers are working or not then see that the setting is 5.1 audio channel then also check the volume controller level in the amplifier. if all these settings doesnt work then download srs soundbox from and install it and configure it properly to get a loud sound.

Output port for left speaker Z2300

I've been having the same problem actually.

In my situation, turning the volume up and down using the speaker volume control will fix the problem. I only have the faint volume problem at some positions of the dial. turning it up usually fixes it. I'm thinking that opening it up and cleaning it might fix the problem (it used to work with an older set of Creative speakers i had).

If that doesnt work im going to try to get a new remote from logitech.

Speaker doesnt give sound

Based on the fact that you have put a headset in and another speaker system and it is working properly there is nothing wrong with your windows settings. I would leave them alone. The issue appears to be with the hardware. Have you attempted to plug the speakers into another source (ie. cd player, ipod, etc)? If you plug them in there and they don't work, take the speakers back and have them exchanged. If they're not under warranty you're going to have to either get them fixed or replace them. Good luck on this one! JC
