Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My new HP is running windows 8 and I get no sound from my hercules XPS 2.0 Lounge speakers. They work fine on my old HP Pavilion Slimline with vista and my Dell with XP.

Have had the speakers for 2-3 years and work fine on old computers running XP and VISTA. New computer is windows 8 - might that be the problem? The speakers have two plugs - one green and one pink. I did pick up cheap speakers just to see if they work and they only have the green plug and do work.

    How do you have the speakers connected to the computer? In the audio connection in the rear of the desktop? What kind of computer is it? Is it connected to USB and what else? Does it have 1 rca plug or 2? I can't find any info. What cable do you use to connect the sound? A headphone jack, or line-out, on the computer must connect to the line-in on the speakers.

Will Harman Kardon HK 206 speakers work with Windows 8


I just purchased a Dell XPS 8500 with Windows 8 and decided to keep using my old Harmon Kardon HK 206 speakers because I'm quite satisfied with these speakers. When I hooked them to my new PC, Windows 8 recognized them right away. The speakers work great on my new PC. Try going to the Control Panel and see if your speakers were recognized. (On my PC they're referred to as "Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio). That's due to the default drivers in Windows 8. As long as you see speakers in the control panel, you should be OK. In that case you should check your connections. If you don't see speakers in the control panel, go back one screen and select add a device and let Windows 8 scan for any device that it hadn't recognized before.

Should have an ALC 888 on board sound driver. There are a bunch of 1/8 inch female jacks on the back of the computer. They should be color coordinated. Can't remember exactly but Green, Black and either pink or orange are used.

HP Pavilion Slimline s3122x powers up fan runs


Hi Im Rain.
I may have bad news for you. Its a very bad sign when your keyboard and monitor are not working at the same time. Sounds like the technician was right.
I also think its your motherboard. If you really just like the computer you can invest in another motherboard.
