Question about Boston Acoustics BA745 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

I took my computer in to get fixed and have a virus taken off. The computer was wiped clean with the exception of some of the programs they saved for me. I can get my speakers to work now. I have a Boston - Number BA745 that came with my Gateway when I bought it. Is there something that I can do to get my speakers to work or do I have to take it back to the shop. I when through all the steps they show you on the computer but I still don't have any sounds. I even had my son check everything even the connection. Any help that you can give will be greatly apprecated. Thank You Susie Barnes

    Do you think when they wiped my computer clean that they removed my program. Do you think that I might have to re-install it.

Mam, i think that your computer got the problem not your speaker. try to use your speaker onto another computer or use it on some mp3 and see if it plays. if not then your speaker got problem. better send it to repair shop or the place where you bought it. otherwise if your speakers plays or functioning correctly then try to format your computer and install the drivers on it. hope that helps

thank you for using fixya

Why is my computer randomly freezing at east once a day?

Most likely you have swollen capaciters on your motherboard. They are the round barrel components and look at the top of them to see if they are bulging and not flat. If so they need replaced. Or replace your motherboard.
If you think its software download free cleaner its a great malware and software program to keep your system running top notch. Also make sure your drivers are up to date. Also uninstall all programs you dont need or use first. Hope this helps.

Repair skype

Best you wipe Skype (delete with Revo Uninstall) and start over. You need to remove all traces of Skype in order to refresh the installation of the updated version. I mention Revo because left over code may sit in the computers registry and that needs to be removed, whereby most Deleting Programs (Windows included) fail to clean out the Registry, an import feature of the operating system. When you have completed the cleaning and install the current Skype (for FREE) and start using it for your pleasure.

How do I download the driver?


I think you need all the drivers in the computer and not just the sound driver since you wiped out everything there.

Here's what you can do:

Go to the website of your comptuer's manufacturer and auto detect the brand of your computer. If they don't have it, then just try searching for it in the computer's casing. You should find the model name somewhere. Make sure to select the support and downloads page in the website and enter the operating system that your computer is currently running. All drivers will be shown on the screen.

Download the following:

1. Video Driver
2. Chipset Driver
3. Audio Driver
4. Internet or Network Driver

You should also install an anti-virus in the computer to make sure that you won't get any virus. After installing everything and if everything's working great, then you can other programs there. You can also add a tech software which can boost your computer's performance like RadarSync which will keep all your drivers updated.

If you have any questions, please drop me a line.

My speakers are all plugged in but there is no sound and I cannot find the device in the control panel. I just had the hard drive wiped. Is there a driver or some sort of software that I need. I think it...

Sounds like you lost your driver if you cleaned out your hard drive & didn't save a copy. Try going online & search for the driver & download it, I would save a copy, maybe on a disc or floppy.

No sound - computer message says can't locate audio visual. Computer had been previously wiped clean because of a virus. Can I download and reinstall software? Make of speakers VS-2121?

It's not your speakers that are the issue most likely (as long as they are round ends with sort of a point (not sharp just like a .5" length cylinder like .25" thick) instead of a rectangular USB connection. If you post more information about your computer we could probably direct you to the drivers you need to download in order to resolve the issue.

The red off button on the desktop will not turn on when pushed.

You can usually use the keys on your keyboard to get to these kinds of options. They are:
1. Ctrl +Esc together
2. or you can push all 3 of these keys at once: Ctrl +Alt + Delete

However, that does not fix the problem. To do that, I would start with updating Windows by going to Programs > Windows Update and then restart your computer after all updates have finished installing.

You might need to update Java, just go to

You might need to update your Internet Explorer.

Beyond that, you may have a virus, so scan your computer with a virus scanner.
If none of this works, you might need to reinstall or repair Windows (use your Windows disk and backup all files that you want to keep first) or go back to a previous Restore Point saved in Windows.

To Restore to a previous state of Windows just go to:

Control Panel> System> and then click on Advanced System Settings

In the box that pops up (System Properties) click on the System Protection tab. You will see any previous restore points with the dates. This might help to go to a time when your computer was working well.

Do not "Create a restore point" because it will create it with the way your system is now and you wont ever want to restore to a point where it is messed up like it is now.

Hopefully one of these will get you going.

Speakers not working, but cables all plugged in...

You might have to reinstall the software that came with the speakers since you had to wipe your computer clean when the virus was on there. The speakers will not work until the software is installed back on your computer.

Virus problem

I would recommend installing an anti-virus program, you can get a 30 day trial of Kaspersky (leading A/V company) from HERE.

Download and install this. Once installed you can do a scan and fix any virus issues you have, and if it fixes your computer it may be worth while investing in an Anti Virus program for your computer.
