Question about Computer Speakers

1 Answer

My Dell computer is relatively new, less than a year old. But whenever i play and kind of sound from my speakers, it kind of skips, making it sound like a scratched cd. It happens for any sound, even when the computer is being turned on, watching videos online, and when listening to music on ituenes.

Old Altec Lansing (no model number on them but they're at least 10 years old) speakers won't work on new Dell Optiplex desktop. They still work on the old Dell Dimension they were on and work on a Del


I have a similar set of Boston Acoustics speakers, which work fine for my tower.
I find it hard to believe that they would just fail outright, and also that (unless you bought an upgraded sound system) you would have digital-only for your audio.
I would recommend to check the basics first.
  1. Check the speakers on another device. Mp3 player will work fine.
  2. check the sound card on your computer (use a set of headphones or another speaker set).
  3. If you find they weren't plugged in, powered on, etc. resolve that. Usually the power plugs are black, and only fit in one spot. The audio cable to plug into the computer is similar to a headphones jack (3.5mm). On most computers the audio output (speakers) port is colored green.
  4. If none of these get you fixed, go into the control panel and click the sounds icon. From there you can view your volume levels (is the sound muted?), view your playback device (it might have a hardware problem, or be disabled), and test the settings.
  5. If you are still stuck after this please also post your version of windows, and the make/model of your computer. If you know it, the type of audio device you are using would also be helpful. (if it's a Dell standard device or perhaps an upgraded Creative or other brand device + model #)
Thanks for asking, and Good Luck!

I have a DELL Dimension 5100. It is about 4 years old. All at once the speakers quit operating, no sound at all. Where do I look for the problem? THANKS.... C. N. Edwards, Jonesborough, TN....


Pleas check the following

1. check connecting a headphone to the computer and see if you get sound from the computer
2. check connecting your speakers to another sound source like a ipod / MP3 player etc
3. try playing different audio / video to confirm
4. check speaker / sound icon in the bottom right corner of your screen - click on it, see if mute is checked or volume level is lowered.
5. if the above steps do not work you have to right click on the my computer icon, click on manage and click on device manager on the left side, if you see any thing that tells you other devices with audio devices under it or any sound related device with a exclamation mark then you have to downlod the latest driver from support.dell.com

Hi there,
Check that your computer doesn't have a microphone (internal maybe) and that it's not switched on.
Cheers.

My speakers sound like the sound is playing underwater


It's probably just a playback setting but, take it back anyway. Let them see if they can make it right. If not, the repair's at their cost.

I had the same problem: speakers worked, but clicked whenever they were on. They are actually Compaq speakers connected to a Dell computer. I solved the problem by moving the speakers about 12 inches farther away from my wireless router. Very easy!

Both right speakers not working


Try to interchange the connections of left channel and the right channel. If there is sound now in the right channel and no sound in the left channel it means that you have problem in the sound card. Otherwise if the problem remains the same you have a defective speaker on your right speaker system but don't forget to take a second look on your speaker wiring.
