I have experience with that model of speakers. When they give up the ghost, the volume is VERY low. But just to be on the safe side, check the volume properties to make sure nothing is set too low. Start>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices. Check the slider bars here, check in the Advanced area as well to make sure nothing is low and check the Speaker Volume as well. If all the bars are set to their maximum, it's time for some new speakers. Thanks for using fixya.com. If you like my answer, please help me out and rate me accordingly.

Well, just because someone at Logitech said the speakers are definitely broken doesn't necessarily make it so. They told me the same thing, yet when I read on another forum that plugging earphones into the wired remote sometimes seems to make things better, I plugged earphones into the wired remote -- and Voila! All of a sudden the blue light went on and I had sound from all three speakers. The sound continued working properly even after removing the earphone jack. IMO the problem could be with the wired remote rather than with the speakers themselves. My speakers work again!
The speakers are not the sound device, the sound card is. You ust select the sound device that is installed in the computer. If you PC is a Dell, go to Support.dell.com and enter your service tag in the downloads section. download the latest audio driver for your PC and it should reset everything to the correct parameters.
Click on product support. Either enter your service tag, or your model number and it will take you to some basic information on your PC.
Click on drivers and downloads, locate your audio driver, download and install.
If that doesn't fix it, try the speakers on another computer to ensure they're working properly. Also, if possible try a set of known good speakers and see if that works on the computer. This will help you figure out which piece of the puzzle isn't working.
there are no drivers for the speakers, you need an audio driver installed for you sound card.
Your system will either have an on-board sound card (Sigmatel normally) or a soundblaster expansion audio card. (If the audio jacks are in an expansion slot below the video card, then you have a soundblaster.
Soundblaster drivers are found at http://www.creative.com
You sound like you have a wire connection problem but to find out try using a spare pair of speakers or try headphones. Try to rule out any wierd system problem, but I don't think that is your problem.
Since this problem went away and then came back reduces the likely hood that it is a power issue so I would go with wiring issues or connection problems. While you are playing music. Move the cable, bend it, and reinsert it a few times. Give the cable a work out. If it comes back while this is happening, you have an open connection. You will need to replace the speaker wiring.
No drivers for your soundcard, this is a computer issue not a speaker issue, contact dell, if you can understand a word they say, ask them "I have Dimension (model number here), I need to know how to install my sound drivers", if you dont know how to do this.
