Re: no sign of life in external notebook speakers
If the powerlight is turning on some times and off sometimes, Then it may be a problem with the powersupply connected to the speakers. Check it.
If the speakers are on and are not playing, Then try playing some music through alternate source like ipod,walkman etc.If the speakers are playing with alternate music source, The try reinstalling the audio drivers of your note book.
If not then your speakers might have fried up due to some reason.

Most PCs and laptops have an audio out jack, usually colored light green. Most external powered speakers have a 3.5mm mini plug that goes into this jack, usually found at the back of the case, or both at the front and back (for PCs), or somewhere around the sides, or at the back of your laptop.
You may control sound volume from your PC, while setting the volume close to the highest on the speakers, or the other way around. Your choice.
go to the control pannel, then go to sounds and audio devices, then click the audio tab across the top. under sound playback, choose your speakers as the default device. solution only works like this for windows xp. good luck
hi, i recommend just using the headphone out, and it probably will not hurt the notebook, as it is not feeding back into the notebooks sound device. you may wish to do as i did, and get a creative labs external sound card. much improvement over the on-board high def sound built into my acer notebook.with all the connections you would want! as for speakers there are alot of models to pick from.i usually go with creative, but this time i went logitech- thx,dts,ect. and i am very happy. i hope this helps you make a decision on what do. good luck!glen
Either way you should be fine. Notebooks have the proper connectors to hook up an external speaker system to them. Just hook up the 1/8" connector with the green end to the green 1/8" female audio port and you're set to go.
