Low Audio on my encounters and I can't change the volume
Alright, so I pulled my speakers out of storage, I just moved and got set back up. I hooked them up to my new laptop.
when the laptop speakers run the volume is controllable however the speakers nifty volume controller is not working for me. I hope its not my speakers. But being as I'm no computer dummy the only other thing I could think of is maybe a conflict with the drivers and windows vista but I don't think it could be that...

Vista is now known to have driver acceptance problems
and the manufacturers of peripherals are getting bolshy at hiving to provide answers- there is a war breaking out between uncle Bill and the rest of the trade.
But try on line with the Sound system providers you may get lucky

Unless the set has actual audio outputs it should not be done.
The set will have a very low audio output not intended for external systems--if you hook to wrong impedance speakers volume either will not work, be very low or even damage the audio circuit in the set
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar hope this helps
Two possible causes.1) Vol Settings changed in windows2) Bad hardware
1) Check your system's sound settings:
Goto Control Panel
Double Click Sound and Audio devices / Sound, Speech, and Audio Devices
In device Volume Click Advance
Master Volume Control Window will open
Increase all the volumes to max, also make sure that Mute us UNCHECKED.
From the bottom right corner of your screen in system tray, double click a small speaker icon and open Master Volume Control.
For Vista and Windows 7
From system tray (its at bottom right corner of your screen) double click on small speaker icon, it will open Volume mixer
Increase the volume to max.
2) If this does not work, then test your speakers by connecting it to some other system and vice versa.
If you get desired sound volume when you connect some other speakers to your system, then you have to change your speakers. And if your speakers are working fine on other system then you may have to purchase a new sound card.
I have speaker problem no sound but I know its there because when I turn on volume can hear it turn on it was working before my computer is hooked up to magicjack for my telephone different area code then where I live and the other day when I picked up reciver to make a call could hear my speakers on my phone assastance asap PLEASE
You are getting low volume because there is no amplifier in those speakers. Computer speaker sets are powered -- there is an amp in one of them them which drives both speakers -- a computer audio output without an amplifier will only satisfactorily drive headphones.
Some models have a volume limit setting, check the MENU and look at the audio settings.
If this has external speakers use other speakers. If it has audio output connect them to a external amp and useing the remote adjust the volume. Check if audio settings are set to internal, external and fixed or vairable output.
Connect each speaker coil one at a time to a square 9 volt battery and watch for the cone to move.
Also try hooking another speaker to your amp just to make sure the noise isn't in the amp.
You can use a 9 volt battery to test wire polarity also. Hook up the + wire of the speaker to the + terminal of the battery and the - speaker to the - battery terminal. If the speaker moved UP or OUT then the wiring is correct. If it moved IN or DOWN then the + and - wires are backwards on the speaker.
Also if you have two or more speakers hooked together test all the same way while they are hooked to each other. ALL of the speakers need to move in the same direction at the same time.
Clipping causes more speaker damage than anything. "Dirty Power" can happen in good quality amps too. The gain control is to match the voltage between the headunit and the amp. It is NOT a volume or boost knob. If you overdrive the first stage of the amp and then clip it damage will occur to the amp and speakers at some point.
