do the speakers work fine on a different computer? if yes i would say try reinstalling the drivers for your sound card... if this doesnt fix it then the card could be bad. but before that.. you cant try plugging other speakers that work into that computer to see if the card is actually the problem.
If the head phone jack works its more likely to be the problem, if you use the headphone jack a lot the connections inside it can get worn or bent out of shape--engaging the headphone jack should shut the speakers in the unit off.
Other possible reason is a bad speaker or connections.
uninstall and reinstall the sound driver and see if it works if that does not work try the same speakers to different sys. and check if it works the port of the sound card might have gone bad and if the same problem with other sys. speakers had gone bad.
the speaker would have gone bad.If the external speakers connected are working fine,then the sound card is fine.If the system is still under warranty u should get the speakers replaced.Contact dell tech support for that.
I'm having this same problem and have sort of solved it with a really wierd technique I found at Logitech. Evidently this problem is related to the control pod rather then the RCA jack. Try this:
Unplug the control pod from the subwoofer
Turn off the main switch
Turn the volume knob one full turn, tap the knob
Repeat again (2 times)
Replug the control pod
Turn on the main switch and the control pod
See what happens
I found that this got the speaker working finicky after it was almost totally useless. It seems to be cutting out randomly, but fidgeting with the control pod or it's connector jack fixes it. No clue what the deal is here, but your problem is identical to mine so take some time to screw around with these components with music running so you can hear if it suddenly works.
well, if you put the green cable on the green connector on your sound card, you,ll be fine, and see if work, fine, depending on your configuration speakers, 5.1 or 2 way, you can test if the sound go on the 2 speakers.you also check if something is bad with the other speakers
Find a friend who has an extra pair of speakers and try, but it looks like your speaker has a short/open
Try your speakers on a different system, if the problem follows you, your speaker has problems.
The cost of fixing theses might not warrant sending them out. Check your warranty. If you were cranking the volume, you could have blown the speaker driver.
