Question about Logitech Laptop Speaker Z205 2 Speakers

Logitech speakers z205 won't work with laptop

The speakers are plugged in and I can hear static coming from them so I know that the problem must be with my laptop (I have windows 7). The speaker icon in the lower right corner has a red 'x' next to it and says "no audio output device is installed." I'm unable to open up volume controls, all that I can get is playback devices and sounds. Tried going through 'sounds' and 'device management' but still can't find anything that will fix it. Trouble shooting says the device is disabled, but every time I look at the properties of the speakers it says they are enabled. Any ideas?

SOURCE: sound from 4 speakers cut off..

To troubleshoot a speaker system where sound is not issuing from all speakers, please do the following:

  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the source selector switch or the M3D button on the controller unit (if available). You can also use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  3. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  4. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.

SOURCE: 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.

the problem is your computer may not sense the presence of your audio device, chances are your driver is either corrupted nor not yet installed.
go to my computer then right click go to properties, hardware, device manager, 
under the device manager go to sounds and see if ther is any exclamation icon or anything , expand this icon and see if there is anything you see that has a yellow exclamation or question mark right click that icon and select scan for hardware changes , then update driver , better yet go to sound properties and see if you can roll back the driver, if you have the cd utilities for your computer, you can reinstall the driver again and after all this restart once again your computer
cheers

SOURCE: x-540 speakers no sound rear speakers

rear speakers are not designed to put out the same output as fronts. They are for supplemental sound only, to make it seem like there's something happening behind you.

You need to install the sound drivers for your PC. go to the manufacturers website, (ex.www.hp.com) and go to the support section, sometimes called downloads also. It will prompt you for your model of PC and what Operating System ( XP,Vista,etc..) and then it will list the drivers that are available. you should update anything in "DeviceManager" that has anything except the "+" sign beside it.

clean the dust from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your SOUND CARD dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
hope this helps

My webcam works fine but the microphone crackles all the time


Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud

No sound from computer speakers


Make sure that you have the speaker plugged into the GREEN jack on the back of the computer or sound card. If they are not color coded then make sure it is plugged into the speaker out. Pink is for the mike and Blue is or plain is for input. You probably already know this but sometimes it helps to know if your not sure. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Static noise coming out of speakers


What sort of computer do you have? Is it a laptop or desktop? Many laptops have this problem and it is quite widespread in laptops. The crackling or humming noise could be a result of interference from the mains power signal.

If it's a laptop, try running it on battery alone (take out the mains power cord). My laptop has this kind of noise in speakers when running on mains electrical supply, but it goes away like magic when I run it on battery.

A more long-term solution is to buy a 'Ground Loop Isolator' and insert it between your computer and the speakers/earphones. They are quite cheap and you could get it for under £10. It removes all static noise and you'll hear crystal clear sound.
