Are you using a Laptop with Dock Station? sometimes you need to "activate" your speakers. Do a right click over speaker icon (lower right corner, next to time/date).Click on "Playback devices", select your speakers, and click on properties. Now verify if displayed info is correct (rear/front panel) and select "Use this device (enable)". Click OK, and ok again... Enjoy it!

First, make sure the speakers are plugged into the center green connector.

Second, go to Gateway's website and download the latest audio drivers for your system and reinstall them. That should do it.

I purchased a new computer and after hooking everything up, everything works except I have no audio. I believe the speakers are internal to this monitor.


Double check that you have the speaker cable plugged into the proper jack (audio out - green) on the computer. Make sure that the audio hasn't been muted and that it is set for the correct output type (if you have a multi-channel audio option).

Try a standalone set of speakers to check if the audio driver for the on-board audio or sound card is working.

I hope this helps.

(I've found that the integrated speakers will fail before the monitor does. Since the integrated speakers are low-end and similar speakers are fairly cheap, get new speakers of a quality you like. Repairing the speakers isn't worth it.)

Had a old Gateway computer with Boston Digital BA735 speakers using XP. Upgrade computer to a N68PV-GS motherboard and have analog output for the speakers. How to I get the old speakers to work?


You can't, at least not with the integrated sound. The speakers only take digital input, and the Gateway had a digital sound card installed. That new board of yours has PCI slots available. You might be able to use the old Gateway sound card. I've never tried it, but XP might recognize the card and have native drivers. If not, you might be able to find XP drivers at Gateway's site. Otherwise all you'll be able to do is buy a new set of analog speakers.

I recenttely hooked up my old gateway compute with the boston speakers and cannot get them to work.. is there some software i need to reinstall to get them working?


on your gateway computer, check to see if you have the volume icon in the bottom right hand corner. If you do then raise the volume up.

If you don't see an icon then that means the sound card drivers are not installed and they need to be to get sound going thru the speakers.

www.gateway.com and go to there support section to get the sound card drivers. I would go there and download the sound card drivers for your computer and then just to make sure you have the speakers hooked up properly go read the manual for the speakers located here:

http://www.bostonacoustics.com/Assets/pdf/manuals/735setup.pdf

Make sure you have adobe reader installed to read the manual.

If you install the sound card drivers and the speakers are hooked up right and your still not getting sound, then that means either the sound card is bad or the onboard sound chip on the motherboard is bad.

I have a set of boston ba735 speakers that i got with my gateway computer and i tried hooking them up to my mac computer and i'm not getting any sound


Correct me if I am wrong but these are USB speakers and as such need the correct drivers / software to run them.

USB speakers can be very finicky to set up and use but once working are usually quite good.

They are not my preference. Real speakers are so much better and can be placed to take best advantage of the sound they produce whereas USB ones cannot.

Other than setting the volume controls in the software, make sure you plugged the speakers into the proper jack. Sometimes there are several output jacks, there may be a line out as well as an amplified out. If the speakers are not amplified, and there is an amplified out jack, try that one.

Install Boston Acoustic speakers BA7800 to a new Imac?


Partial Solution anyway - I just got a Mac Pro (2.66 Nehalem )and couldn't find the manual from my old Gateway 700XL. This is what I did: Plug the green wire into the analog output, and the pink wire (if you really need an external mic, but you shouldn't since our new computers both have a built-in mic) into the analog input. Just ignore the black wire. You won't have the 2 surround speakers, but I'm still looking for a fix for that. I got tired of the crappy speakers in my new Apple Cinema display (the ONLY crappy thing about my new system). As you know, the sound from the BA7800 is great, even with just the two front speakers and sub-woofer. I'll keep you posted if/when I figure out how to set up the surround speakers! Likewise, if you hear something, please post here and I'll keep checking back.

Will my boston accoustics ba735 speakers work with a dell laptop?


We also have a Gateway Computer purchased in 2001 with the Boston Digitanl BA735 speakers. We ran into a similar problem when we upgraded from Windows ME to Windows XP, with no sound after the upgrade. After consulting with computer stores and "Geek Squad", it was finally determined that Windows XP set the speakers for analog not digital. Once that was reset, our sound returned. Hope this works for you.

No sound from speakers


If you buy a 1/8 - 1/8 male on each end of cord and plug it into your stereo headset plug on your computer (probably the front of tower) and the other end to the analog in on the back of your ba735 will work great....... Good Luck,

Boston Acoustic Speakers from Gateway to Pacer7720-4438 laptop


The laptop should have a speaker output the same size as that plug. This is the size of most small computer speaker systems.
