    Same problem - HP dual core processor, Windows VISTA. Random bursts of Thunder from the system speakers (located on the monitor). Does not sound like static - sounds like recorded thunder.

    I have the same problem too. Not a speaker glitch, but actual sound of recorded thunder. Happens randomly. I think its a virus but Malware can't find it. Frustrating!!!!

    I heard the thunder too, then found this posting. I found in "settings" of the weather toolbar I ahd recently installed that the "sound alerts" could be clicked off. That will probably do it.

I had the same problem too, and it was driving me crazy! Finally, I figured out it was my weather desktop notification thing...If you have one of those try fixing the settings so it doesnt make any sounds...hope it works for you!

That is normal, but you better put the volume to minimum to avoid damage to the speaker and to your ear.
When you plug it in, the connectors are receiving sudden voltage increase, this is what you hear as thunder.

It sounds something else is wrong, try plugging out every pci, pci-e, and usb. If the problem still persist, try updating your motherboard driver and cmos driver.
If all the above fails, then you have a bad motherboard. Then there's nothing else you can do but buy a new pc or replace the motherboard.

Check that they are plugged into the Green socket. Open Volume control from the taskbar and check that Wave and Volume controls are turned up. If still nothing, check the speakers by plugging headphones in in place of them. Hope this helps. :)

Tells me speakers not plugged in


Check that the speakers are plugged into the correct audio port, this is usually an apple green colour. Next go into device manager and check all drivers are installed correctly. Below is some further advice I wrote for another user.
You should first check you have not accidentally muted it in both windows and on the speakers itself. Next go into Device Manager and check the sound driver is installed (no yellow exclamation marks can be seen).
If this has not resolved the problem then it is probably your soundcard. If you soundcard is integrated onto the motherboard then there may be further defects.
Check what internal ports you have free, there should be some long ports called PCI or PCI-e (not ports in line with the RAM). You can then buy a PCI/PCI-e sound card and it will just clip into the slots.
Hope this helps,

Bad Display


The usual symptoms of the ati2dvag problem are:
  • PC crashes without warning, sometimes the display shows weird patterns before the crash.
  • Resolution may revert to the lowest resolution settings upon restarting your PC.
  • The CPU temperature may shoot up prior to crashing.
  • PC may not be able to reboot back after the crash, unless you turn off the power supply unit of your PC and switch it back on again.
  • Your PC tells you (sometimes only) that the ati2dvag driver has failed to function.
This is a universal problem afflicting thousands of PCs worldwide and can occur in totally new or old computers; it doesn’t discriminate. Imagine the frustration of buying a new PC only to have it crash on you after a few weeks and thereafter.
There have been many hypothesis’ postulated. Some say it is a very stealthy virus, some say it is an incompatibility with Windows XP SP2 and ATI, some say it is a problem with the hardware acceleration settings in the ATI graphic card, others say it is a problem within Windows XP itself…etc.
The 2 most common “solutions” are:
  • Reinstall the ATI driver. You are advised to launch Windows in Safe Mode (press F8 before Windows boots), go to Windows Add/Remove programs and uninstall everything ATI. Remove the DAO/MDAC component as well. You can use the ATI removal tool utility which can be downloaded from the ATI website. The complete set of instructions on removing ATI can be found on the ATI website.
  • Go to System Devices in My Computer > Properties > Hardware, and locate the option, PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge. This could under other names on your PC, so contact your PC vendor if you’re unsure. Right click, and select the “update driver” option. Manually search and install the PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge.

This post is very old but will answer it anyway. the Round 10 pin plug you were talking about goes to the powersupply that came with the speakers.the one speaker plugs into the other speaker and the double ended cord plugs into your Pc sound out and the other end goes to line in on the powersupply.

Wharfedale s20030 speakers broken?


First, check input power (electricity) of your speaker. You can see lamp indicator on speaker (usually LED lamp, Light Emitting Diode, green light or else) must be light ON.
Two, jack line out (usually green) on the speaker, you must touch that jack. Don't worry, you can't heart attack cause of it (for touching that jack, DC-Direct Current supply). If you hear some noise, sound of droning, buzzing, that is indicate of sound will be come out from that speaker.
Three, you play WinAmp software (or Windows Media Player, from Microsoft) and get in one of mp3 file, and load it into WinAmp player. Make sure if your mp3 file is normally sound.
Four, plug in your green jack (of speaker) to the line in of your sound card (refer to mainboard PC, if your soundcard get in ONBOARD or plug in PCI slot). Green jack line of speaker to socket green of sound card.
Five, now you can hear sound of your song....
