If your computer is bang up-to-date with all Windows/Linux system updates and Drivers for your set-up, it sounds like your Sound Card has had a terminal fault. I would try a newly purchased card, so as to be sure the outputs are functioning.

SOURCE: None of my computer outputs

The first thing you can try is reset the CMOS and see if that helps. Sometimes you cause BIOS issues when changing RAM

How to install speakers

Most commonly computer speakers have a 3.5 mm jack plug that fits into the audio output of the computer motherboard or sound card if it has one. If this is the case there is no installation or software required.

Lots of modern computers have none of the traditional sockets and rely entirely on usb connections when usb speakers will be needed. It is possible some software could need installing before they will operate, though it is equally possible they will work straight away. It depends whether your operating system already has the necessary drivers.

If usb speakers arrive with a software disc you have the option of installing manually or allowing the setup wizard to install it for you. Both ways might work or only one way.

Right outlet not working

If a single output has failed then it could be the preamplifier or amplifier on that side which has failed. It could be the stereo left/right knob that has a broken track. None of these electronic problems can you fix yourself (Unless your into electronics I guess).

Simple things first. I'd do a substitution test and swap the speakers around. Does it still fail on that side? If it switched to the other side the speaker is faulty.

Do the same with the cables. Substitution tests wont fix the problem but it will tell you which component the problem lies with.

The speakers quit working/what do I do?

Make sure that it is the speakers that stopped working by unplugging them from your computer (or whatever you have them plugged into), and plugging headphones into the same jack that the speakers were plugged into.If the headphones work, you have confirmed that the problem is with the speakers. If the speakers use an AC adapter (black plastic cubical thing that plugs into the wall), then you might try getting a replacement AC adapter with the same output (AC or DC), voltage, polarity (which side is positive, and which is negative), and connector. If the speakers plugged into a USB port for power, your USB port may have turned itself off. In that case, reboot the computer to see if the USB port will turn back on.
If none of this works, you have to buy new speakers.

Left speaker is not working on my 2.1 speaker system...

A few things can cause this to happen. First we should check the computer. Take a pair of headphones or other speak set and check if sound comes from both sides. If to then the computer output is correct, else the computer is channeled to output to one side.

To change sound settings, if this is windows, go to your control panel and look for sounds option. In there you can change speaker settings, change volumes. On the volume control you can balance the speaker output. center the slider to make both correct.

If sound is coming from the PC correctly with a test object you will need to check your speakers for a fade option, not many have this it is just a suggestion. If no fade option exists, make sure the plug is totally seated. Improperly seated plugs will cause only 1 channel to be outputted or none.

If all the above does not help then check the cabled leading form the computer to speakers for damage as well as checking the wire between the left and right speakers for damage. Many times the output lead from the right to he left gets damaged from stress or other things and will stop output. Wiggle and pull the wire gently in each direction if they don't physically look damaged to see if sound is produced. if it is then the wire is internally damaged or loose from the speaker.

good luck

My speakers worked at one point now they dont please tell me whats wrong

If both speakers failed at the same time, then I bet you changed a setting on the amplifier. This setting probably has something to do with either:
  • the sound input (tuner, CD, tape, aux, etc...)
  • the sound output (only if you have multiple possible outputs)
If one speaker failed, then the other speaker failed I would check your speaker wire and the connections on each side of the wire. It is possible that the wires were bumped, and pulled out enough to lose contact, or the connections could have corroded. Either way, this is fixable, just make metal contact and your speakers will be up and running again.
If your speakers started acting weird before they failed, then you may have blown them out, in which case you should buy new speakers.
If none of these situations apply, then your amplifier broke, and you need a whole new system.
I hope this was helpful.
