    Same problem and every thing is plugged in properly. unplugged and plugged in, but no difference. The light is suppose to light up green, but it's not even lighting. I am working on getting a driver update for my soundcard to see if that might be the problem. The light just might not be working on the speakers and the speakers do work. You never know.

I just brought this computer to my house from my girl friends grandmas house speakers and all worked fine now i plugged everything in the the exact speakers that were on it are plugged into it and the...


Assuming something in the computer didn't mysteriously go bad during the move, there are two possibilities. First, make sure the signal cable from the speakers is plugged in to the right place. You may have plugged it into the microphone input or line input jack by mistake. Second, be sure the speakers have power. Most speaker systems require AC power, either from a plug-in adapter or a built-in supply that needs an AC connection. (Some newer systems come with USB-powered speakers that don't need an external adapter.)

A remote possibility is that in the move, the speakers got bumped enough to disturb connections on the circuit board inside. The amplifier chip in the speaker case gets hot (especially if the volume is turned way up), and the heat can degrade solder connections, and sometimes cracks form. The move may have caused connections that were iffy to go bad. But this isn't very likely.

You'll probably find it to be a very simple missed connection. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

My speakers are not working


Step 1
If no sound is coming from the computer, start troubleshooting your problem. Make sure both your computer and speakers are plugged in, have power, and are turned on. If the speakers are plugged in but do not appear to have any power, plug them into a different outlet. If you are using a power strip and this is case, replace the power strip. Some speakers are self powered and use a USB cable to supply power. Make sure that the USB cable of your speakers is connected securely to the USB port of your computer.

Step 2
Once you have verified that you have power to your speakers, test the sound again. If you still do not have any sound, make sure the cable connecting the speakers to the computer (known as a 1/8" TRS cable) is plugged into the green audio output jack on the PC.

Step 3
Before we move to software, let's try two more hardware fixes. If you are using self-powered USB speakers, remove the USB cable and plug it into a different USB port. If you are using outlet powered speakers and have a working set handy, replace the non-working speakers with the working pair to test. If you still have nothing, let's move on to software. But one tip first: (for geeks and beginners)

Step 4
As it is with any troubleshooting process, the issue can sometimes come down to the hardware itself. If you have an add-on sound card and none of the hardware or software fixes helps, you may have to replace the sound card. If you use on-board sound, it will probably pay to purchase an inexpensive sound card rather than a new motherboard. If you've been messing around in the BIOS, you may have disabled your on-board sound if that's what you're using. If you don't know what BIOS means, you probably haven't been there and can move on.

Step 5
Go to your desktop. Click Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Volume tab. If everything is grayed out, go to step 8. If the "Mute" box is checked, un-check it. In "Device Volume" make sure that your volume level is set to a comfortable volume level for your speakers.

Step 6
Click the "Sounds" tab. Under "Sound Scheme" check to see if "No Sounds" is selected. If it is, click "Sound Schemes" and a drop down list will appear. Select "Windows Default" as the scheme. To test your sound now, click on a sound listed below the "Program Events" window. These will be indicated by a small speaker icon located next to them. Simply left click the sound once, then click the play button. If you hear sound, congratulations. If not, move on.

Step 7
Click the "Audio" tab. Under the "Sound Playback" option, make sure your sound card is selected as the default playback device. Usually, only one device appears here, unless you have multiple playback devices installed.

Step 8
If everything is grayed out, you either do not have a playback device installed or your drivers are corrupted and need to be replaced. Drivers help hardware and software function together. Try this fix for reinstalling drivers. Click Start > Right-click "My Computer" > select "Properties" from the drop-down menu > Click the "Hardware" tab and then click the "Device Manager" button. Device Manager will open.

Step 9
Look for either a red X or a yellow question mark listed under "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers" If you have a red X, right click the device with the x and select "Enable" from the pop-up menu. Test your sound at this point. If you have a yellow question mark, right click the device, click "Properties" from the pop-up menu, and then click the "Driver" tab on the window that appears. Now, click the button "Roll Back Driver" to go back to the previous drivers that were functioning correctly. Restart your computer at the prompt.

Step 10
As a last resort, you can uninstall and reinstall the device. Right click the device and select "Uninstall" from the pop-up menu. Restart your computer. Windows will automatically detect and install your audio device upon boot-up. If after doing all of the steps, listed here and you still cannot hear any sound from your computer speakers, contact a qualified computer technician.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

Our speakers are pluged into the light green port we are getting a buzzing noice but no audio


First check you dont have a red line through your speaker on your toolbar. If so click it and "UN-mute it.

Check that the speakers are plugged into the GREEN port on the back of the computer and that the speakers are powered up with the volume at about 1/2 way.

Make sure the plug is all the way in ! and that the power supply is OK if it is an external one

Open volume control.

If the volume contol on your computer is greyed out then you need to check the hardware from the control panel.

When the box with all the sliders opens up click on OPTIONS (top left)
Click PROERTIES

Make sure that Volume controls, Wave, SW Synth, CD PLayer, Line IN, and MIC all show on there and that the volume sliders are about half way up.

Make sure noe of the sliders have ticks at the bottom, if so UNTICK them.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing
(nothing else unles you know you want that item)

Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.

You should now have sound out of the speakers.

If not double check that you have no problems with your hardware from the device manager.

If you have any exclamation marks by any hardware you need to sort that out. (maybe drivers first)

It could be a power supply issue but the steps above will prove that or otherwise

Sound won't work without the earphones being plugged in


Make sure the speaker volume is turned up and also go into Control Panel, Sounds and make sure nothing is muted and all volumes are turned up. Also make sure the speakers are plugged into the sound jack in the back of the pc. The speakers also need power but since the light is on, it sounds like they are plugged in.

COMPUTER PROBLEM


Make sure your mute is not on, your volume is turned up, your speakers are plugged into the correct port, and the sound drivers are installed for your sound device.
  • Turning the mute on and off and volume up
  1. Down by the clock there is something that looks like a little grey speaker. If you left-click does, is the Mute check box, checked?
  2. Make sure the volume bar is up. You should hear a "beep" sound when you click and move the slider up and down. This signifies the volume.
  • Speaker Port
  1. Check that the speakers of your PC are plugged into the correct port. On most motherboards and sound cards, the correct port for the front left and right speakers are usually color coded as a "light green".
  2. Ensure the speakers are plugged into this port.
  • Make sure the drivers for your sound device are installed
  1. Go to Start -> Control Panel
  2. Double-click on "System" (without quotes)
  3. Select the "Hardware" tab (without quotes)
  4. Click the "Device Manager" button (without quotes)
  5. If you see something that mentions sound device and it has a yellow question mark or yellow exclamation mark next to it, the drivers are not installed correctly or there are errors with the device.
  • If the above steps do not work
  1. If the above steps do not work, consider having your PC professional checked out as there are several other things that MAY be wrong with the PC and diagnosing these issues via the internet would be near impossible.
I hope this helps you resolve your problem.

No sound through external speakers


Although some monitors have built in speakers, most people have stand alone speakers. If the old monitor had built in speakers and now it is unplugged you won't hear sound. Even if the speaker cable is still plugged into the sound output on the back of your computer, the monitor must be plugged into an electrical outlet to have power.

I'd recommend buying a new set of external speakers if this is the situation.

If you never had speakers built into the monitor then normally changing monitors would make no difference whatever. The only explanation that makes sense under those conditions is that in the process of replacing the monitor, you dislodged the speaker jack from the sound output on the back of the computer.

Make sure your external speakers have electrical power plugged in, the power is on (green light on at least one speaker lights up) and the volume on the speakers is at least half way up.

Unplug the speaker from whatever hole it is plugged into and plug it firmly back in and test sound.

If still no sound other than some static on the speakers, try every single hole on the back of the computer that the jack will fit properly and test for sound.

Let me know if you have further questions.
