Try plugging it into all 3 speaker slots on the back of your computer. There is also the possibility that they arent compatible with computers

No sound at all emitted through the speakers even though i see the spectral display of sound on the desktop player indicating that music is playing.


Do your speakers require power? If so are they powered? You can tell just by hearing static/noise when you disconnect the speakers connector and plug it back in.

If they are not powered, are you sure you are plugged into the correct port on the PC? It will have 2 half circles with an arrow pointing outward.

If none of the above work, try plugging the speakers into something else to see if they work, like a CD player, or cell phone (if you have a new one with RCA output). This will check and see if the speakers are actually working or not.

I have no sounds on my pc?


Have you checked to see if you accidentally muted your speakers?

If that is the case then you can go to Start-Control Panel-Sound and see if the speakers are muted.

Did you have any external speakers connected to it?

If you said yes then they may be unplugged or turned off, or they may have died and you could always go back to making your pc the default speaker.

Go back to the control panel and click sound, here you can disable your external speakers to see if your pc can emit sound.

If that does not work then you may have to reinstall the driver for your sound card or see if your computer even sees your sound card.

No audio to speakers on hp 552w com


Good day sir/ma'am, hi, If your PC does not produce sound, it could be any of the following so check the list one by one:
  1. Your device driver for the sound is not yet installed. locate the CD that comes with your PC. I could help you find the driver if you add any information about your PC model or motherboard maker, you can download the driver at driverguide.com, just note the maker and model.
  2. Your volume is either in mute or in a low volume setting. Check the taskbar at the lower right side of the desktop, if you see a speaker icon, right click it and set the volume level to high.
  3. Your speakers is not connected to the audio port. Check the baby plug stereo speaker connector for open wires, if the wires are good connect it to the green audio port at the back panel of the PC, (usually pink, blue and green are side by side)
  4. Your speakers are not working properly. If you have portable mp3 players, plug in your speakers to test the speaker unit itself.
  5. Worst come to worst if your green audio port is the defective one. you can use the blue one provided you enable 4 channel, so sound is also sent to the blue port.
  6. your built in sound card is bad, you can get a replacement soundcard of any brand, provided its PCI slot. or get those small USB type sound card.
  7. Check also the BIOS setup, see if the built in sound card is enabled.
If I miss anything feel free to ask, hope these will solve your sound problems.

No response from sub woofer - when i turn the dial nothing happens - all sound other than that seems to be working ok


check the wiring of the speaker set and also check if there is cut of the wires. Check also the connections between the computer and the speaker set. If problem persist then try the speaker into a mp3 player or an ipod, if it does not sound still then probably your sub woofer has hardware problem.

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....

I am a computer dummy...How to I connect speakers for sound like music in my computer?


The end of your speakers should have a green plug, on the back of your computer there is a green port. Insert the green plug into the green port. If you have a power cord for your speakers you need to plug that into the wall. 
Please rate my answer, and good luck.

I have a set of Durabrand UC280 speakers. Pluged them into my cumputer. No sound. The speakers seem to work OK. Have checked systems and all say are working correctly. Any suggestions????


Are you sure you are plugged into the speaker output on your computer? Of not try the other outputs, and also make sure the volume is turned up and not muted on your computer, check by double clicking on the speaker icon in the lower right hand corner of your screen or by going to the sound applet in Control Panel.

Have you tried these speakers on another computer or with a CD player or MP3 player? If they don't work with another device either than you know there is a problem with your speakers.

Also make sure that the speakers are plugged into a power source if they require it, most likely they do.
