Re: Durabrand 2.0 CH USB Speaker System
Try this, go to control panel and double click Sounds and Audio Devices. Then click advanced, under speaker settings and make sure your settings are desktop speakers. Also, in control panel, click Sound Effect Manager and do a speaker test. This should help.

Plug the power transformer into the bottom jack on the back of the right-channel speaker. This is the speaker with the on/off knob on the front.
Plug the audio cable attached to the left-channel speaker into the audio jack on the back of the right-channel speaker. The jack is immediately above the jack for the power cord.
Plug the audio jack attached to the back of the right-channel speaker into the headphone jack on a laptop computer (usually located along the left edge), or to the audio output jack on the back of a desktop PC.
Plug the speaker transformer into a surge protector and the surge protector into a wall outlet.
Turn the on-off and volume control knob clockwise on the front of the right-channel Inspiron speaker to activate the stereo speakers and adjust the volume.
Check that the speakers are powered on (assuming they need power) and that the volume control is set at a mid-level.Next check that you have the speaker 3.5mm jack plug inserted into the correct speaker socket on the audio card - there are normally three sockets, one each for a microphone, speaker or headphone output and for line output - these are often colour coded on newer systems and if so, match the colour of the speaker jack plug to the speaker socket.If the speakers are connected by USB instead of an audio jack plug, then check to see if the USB device has been recognised automatically - if not, then you may need to find any software that came with the speakers and install this before the system will recognise them.Finally, open the system audio controls and check what device is selected for audio output - ensure that this is the same as the speaker device you are wanting to use.One further test, if you have the speakers powered on and they have a standard audio jack, you should hear some feedback sound if you touch the contacts at the end of the jack plug with your fingers.
Place the front left and right speakers on each side of the TV with the speaker labeled "Center" either above or below the TV screen. Set the rear speakers behind the seating area at head level and place the subwoofer on the floor a few inches away from the wall, which can absorb bass sounds if the sub is pressed against it.
Connect the plug on the end of each speaker to the jack labeled for that speaker on the back of the Durabrand receiver. The cables are permanently attached to the speakers, so each may need to be moved closer to the receiver. For example, the left front speaker connects to the jack on the receiver labeled "LF."
Plug the video cable from the Video OUT jack on the back of the receiver to a Video Input jack on the back of the TV.
Plug in the Durabrand receiver and TV to the electricity and switch on both components.
Press the "Input" button on the TVremote several times until the Durabrand signal displays on the screen.
yes.. in those types of speaker systems the usb is for just power.. and the "banana plug" is the audio jack.. there should be some kind of audio outpu on your computer .. it is usually located in the back near the middle or bottom.
Ok when you plugged in the USB sound did it "see" it... did it ask for "Drivers" Because this device MUST have drivers.. also ya may have to disable any onboard sound device ya may have via the BIOS setup menu. Generally these USB sound devices are real easy to install and use.. try it on another PC to be sure it is OK.. GL
First things First:
1) check your connectors back on the PC, I presume you use windows XP and sound drivers installed **
2) plug the speakers cable on back or front of your PC in the green (usually) connector.
3) see if sound is NOT mute on mixer , multimedia in control panel.**
4) If you can Enter your BIOS, try to enable sound, for onboard sound, if apply**
Based on your post/description, the Durabrand 2.0 CH USB Speaker System is a basic external speaker that plugs into your PC's speaker/headset output (green jack). It is supposed to get its power from the +5VDC supplied by the USB port. Some USB port have current limiting therefore it can be anywhere from 10 - 500 mA. The power requirement of your external Durabrand speaker maybe beyond what the PC's USB ports can supply. It does not need to be recognized by the OS since it only connects to the USB to get power but there is no data interaction.
Perhaps what you can do is get an external +5VDC power supply whose output is in USB type connector. The current rating would depend on the requirement of your speaker. Offhand, if the speakers are not that big, probably a 1 Amp would do.
This is of course assuming that the Durabrand speaker system is fully functional. If with an external power supply it is still a no go and you have verified that sound do come out of your green jack (with the use of an ordinary headset), then the Durabrand is defective.
Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
