    What type of connector(s) you are using to connect your speakers to PC and the mains?
    1. USB and AC/DC adaptor?
    2. USB only?
    3. 3.5 mm audio jack (to audio card) and AC/DC adapter?
    4. 3.5 mm audio jack (to audio card) and USB (as power supply)?

    Have you tried to connect your speakers to any other audio device such as mp3 player?

I could be the driver for your soundcard that has been corrupted. If they are usb speakers any drivers that need to be installed should be installed before you plug them in, otherwise they will not work.

My laptop is suddenly not recognising my iluv usb connected speakers.Is there a fix?


To start, try connecting the speakers to a USB port on a second computer. That will help you find out if the problem is with the speakers or the computer.

If the speakers work on the 2nd computer, try connecting a different device to the same USB port on the computer. Also try a different USB port on the same computer.

How to take apart acer usb powered speakers


Are you sure the problem is with the usb speakers? Have you tried them on another computer?

I think I would just get on ebay and buy me a set of usb speakers before I waste time trying to repair them. They are not expensive at all.

http://www.ebay.com

I buy my usb speakers online from the site below. They start at $2.99 but I normally buy the ones that are $6.99 to $12.99

The speakers quit working/what do I do?


Make sure that it is the speakers that stopped working by unplugging them from your computer (or whatever you have them plugged into), and plugging headphones into the same jack that the speakers were plugged into.If the headphones work, you have confirmed that the problem is with the speakers. If the speakers use an AC adapter (black plastic cubical thing that plugs into the wall), then you might try getting a replacement AC adapter with the same output (AC or DC), voltage, polarity (which side is positive, and which is negative), and connector. If the speakers plugged into a USB port for power, your USB port may have turned itself off. In that case, reboot the computer to see if the USB port will turn back on.
If none of this works, you have to buy new speakers.

My usb powered speakers light up but my system still shows no audio device present


Hi, well windows must install the correct Drivers before your device will work. You need to check this.
As the speakers are powered by the USB port and require 5 volts to operate. Some USB ports do not have a full 5 volts DC and have current limiting. Your speakers may require more power then your USB ports can give. or try them with a Powered Hub.
Have you tried them in another computer? to see if they actually work?
Try, another USB port, try a powered hub.
Ensure that they show up in device manager, if there right click, and select upgrade Drivers, allow it to look for and install the generic driver.
make sure it is set as your Default device.
You may have to disable your onboard sound from the BIOS, first too.

XP laptop no longer recognizes any USB speakers, and internal speakers dont work. USB speakers do not appear in the audio controls. the only 'device' listed under Sound Playback is SoundMax Digital Audio,...


Nothing wrong with your USB ports. MagicJack has changed your audio and driver settings so it can use the sound system for phone calls. The changes exist whether the Jack device in plugged in or not.
You can confirm the problem by uninstalling MagicJack and reinstalling your sound drivers. Should fix the problem.
You'll probably need to contact the maker of the MagicJack device for a workaround. Might be something specific to your laptop/operating system.

No sound coming through Toshiba Dynadock station


Try to plug in the speaker jack to Headphone jack on you laptop not to your docking station. So the desktop speaker is treated as an external average speaker. GoodLuck!
