Hi, you should install the audio driver for your new speakers to work. If you don't know where you can find the driver, drop me a comment and post the manufacturer and model name of your motherboard or sound card so I can assist you further. And also the Operating you are using now. Your computer says "No audio installed" because it is looking for the audio driver for your sound card.

My computer doesn't detect my speakers, I do have windows 8


Do you have the AC adapter plugged into a live outlet and have you turned on the speakers? Make sure that the speaker signal cable is plugged into the correct port on your computer (the lime green port on a desktop). Check that the correct audio driver is installed for your computer. (With Windows 8, use the Device Manager to check. From the Start Screen, type in Device Manager. Click on Settings and then select Device Manager. Alternatively, Windows key+C on the desktop. Select Settings and then Control Panel. You can find the Device Manager under System and Security or Hardware and Sound.) Scroll down to the Audio devices. Expand the section and look for a red triangle with an X or a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. Try updating the driver (check with the manufacturer of your computer for the latest driver). Even if you don't see the error triangle, try reinstalling the latest driver.

Next check if the speakers work on another computer. If they don't work, the audio cable may be damaged. Try a different set of computer speakers on your computer.
If other known good speakers do not work and the correct audio drivers have been installed, check the audio output devices. Go to the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound page (as described above). Choose Manage Audio Devices. Check if the HDMI port is set as the default audio device. Disable it for a bit (right click on the device) . Sometimes when a new video card is installed, the audio device defaults to this port. This messes up the drivers for the regular audio.) Reboot the computer and then try reinstalling the audio driver. Reboot again.
If it still fails, there is probably something wrong with the audio device hardware. If you are using an add-on sound card, try disabling it and using the motherboard audio device. (A number of add-on sound cards didn't work well with Win7 or Win8. The on-board audio drivers worked better.) If you are using the motherboard audio on a desktop, try an add-on sound card. (Check for Windows 8 compatibility (drivers) before selecting any card.)

I hope this helps.

When i plug in the speakers no sound is coming out it doesn't work correctly i cant hear anything i'm playing.


Hi taceeg06,
Have you check all the Volume setting on you computer?
On the lower right side look for the computer Icon check if there is a red X on the speaker Icon, if there is then it can be that here is something wrong with the speaker driver or it does not detect the speakers.
If you do not see the speaker Icon then the Driver for the Audio card is not installed on the computer and you may need to re install that Audio Card Driver to be able to regain the audio from your Speakers.
Also the speakers should connect to the Green Audio Jack behind the computer, if it is then still no Audio you can try the Audio Jack in front of the computer as well to check the Audio Card in the Machine, if the front and back audio jacks do not detect nor produce sound when the speakers are connected then re installing the driver for the Audio card may work, unless during the installation an error shows that the there is no audio device detected then it means the Audio Card is busted.
Let us hope not since it is very seldom an Audio Card could go busted.
I hope this helps.
Have nice day,

Hi c-king,

Ah, cavaet emptor the dreaded used computer. I'm going to assume that it had speakers that worked in it's previous life. Check all cable connections, make sure system is not muted, speaker control knob is on. In windows, most editions, follow: start, control panel, sounds and audio devices, volume tab-speaker settings-advanced settings. Here you can configure and choose your speaker setup(it may be set at headphones) i.e. 5.1, 7.1 etc.. Also check the audio tab to make sure you have a digital audio device installed i.e. Sigma Tel Audio or what ever is installed in your computer. I hope this helps a little, if not, hit me back, we have other options i.e. new audio drivers.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

If after connect your usb speaker cable the system it is asking for software (drivers) you have to install them to get your audio working properly. Check it out the box of your new speakers for a installation CD.

You can also verify:

Check if your audio es working properly (start >> control panel >> sound and audio devices)
Check if your sound card is properly installed (My pc >> Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Audio)
