Re: my desktop pc wont recognise my speakers
Go to the control panel, open device manager, check the sound system. If you have installed a new O.S., then you will need to also install a new sound system. Perhaps it ac audio 97 or some other. Look for yellow exclamation mark or yellow question mark and right click on that and update drivers. Hope that helps.

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.)
You have to reinstall the audio driver of your motherboard. You can reinstall that by using the cd that came with the motherboard. If you dont have the cd anymore, open your pc and look for the brand name and model of your motherboard and download the driver from the internet. Check also for other devices if needs reinstalling the drivers. You can check it by opening the control panel, click "system" then click "device manager". There you can see if all your devices are working perfectly. If you can see a question mark beside the device, you have to reinstall the driver for that particular device.
Whats happened is that your "Audio Drivers" have been removed. Your audio device is inside your PC /laptop, probably on a bit of your computer called the motherboard, but in order for your computer to recognise and talk to your audio device it needs a bit of software called a driver. We need to find out what type of PC / Laptop you have, make another post on here with as much info on you PC/laptop as you can find, and state that you are looking for the audio drivers, myself or one of the other experts will then find the right drivers for you and tell you how to install them
make sure that the power is on and mute is not. Check to see if the speakers work properly before trying to
troubleshoot your system. Do this by connecting the speakers to a music
system or radio. If they do, the problem is definitely system related.
If you find that only a certain application has the problem, such as Windows Media Player or Winamp, reinstall it.
If all this is to no avail, go to the system properties [Windows] +
[Pause/Break] or right-click on my computer and select Properties and
in device manager make sure that sound card is installed properly. Look
for a yellow exclamation mark, if it present, you will have to
reinstall the drivers.
If you have an integrated sound card that is disabled in the BIOS, then
Windows will not be able to detect it. Refer to your motherboard
manual, and find out how to enable the same. Usually it is present
under the advanced peripherals section in BIOS.
If you have access to another PC, plug the sound card into that system,
and check if it is working. If the problem persists, off to a
technician you go.
low feed backs hurt my ratings and I am tring to help you with your problem.
Applogies for whoever the idiot is on other sarcastic solution, as it rears it's ugly head every now and then.
The problem won't be your speakers, but the sound or audio driver.
if you post your pc or notebook details and operating system back here, I will try to point you in the right direction.
i would like to know if your on board soud or sound card is not being recognized by your system? as far as i know speaker will not work if your sound device driver is not installed. so maybe theres nothing wrong with your speakers. try to go to my computer properties go to system device hardware and see if there is an yellow exclamation in your sound device. if there is, update the driver using the provided cd from your motherboard, if its on board sound device. but if its a sound card, update the driver using the cd provided from your sound card. but if your sound device is ok and there no yellow exclamation, probably you hooked your speaker connector to the wrong jack. it should be the color green one. try and good luck
