Question about Creative Labs MegaWorks THX 550 Computer Speakers
My speaker volume is suddenly very low, when I click on the "Creative Volume Control" icon I get an error message that says " Invalid Language I.D. is being set.
Login I.D. 1033.
go to control panel->sound and audio devices-> in volume tab see that "place volume icon in the taskbar" is checked. then you'll get your icon back in task bar.

generally this is due to ground problem, signal gnd and power gnd need to be separate (i faced the same problem even i dint do anything from hardware side .. don ask me hw it happned).. open the volume controller u will find a small PCB (printed circuit board) with volume control ,LED and a connector. see at the back side of the voume control u will see five pins starting from right side short 1st and fourth pin. provided you connect ground of both cables which goes inside the volume controller.. it works for me.. you may experiment as i did...

Congrats, you yourself is a good troubleshooter. Just pinpointed your problem. What you just diagnoist can be easilly checked just by taking other good known speaker. If that works your speaker is short check for audio output wires. If not your card needs replacement. If need further clarifications just comment.

Creative used to sell the replacement volume controls on there site but I guess they stopped selling them.
So what I would do is select your product at http://support.creative.com/
Then click on Contact Us
Next click on My problem is not listed
This will get you to email support. Send them an email stating that you need a replacement volume control and powersupply. They will ether refer you to Customer Service or to the RMA department to get a replacement.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps
