I want to use my old speakers from my very old packard bell machine. These speakers plug into the monitor that they came with,which looks like a power cable from an adaptor. I tried just connecting them to my newpc but they wont work. Is there any way I can use them so I dont have to shell out for another set?

To narrow down the problem try turning off and on your monitor a few times or try another monitor, if the issues persist your video card is probably the issue, while it can be something else as well based on what you have told us so far it sounds like it.
F1 is probably the key to enter the Bios setup utility. Press and hold the F1 key immediately after you start the machine. Go to the boot priority section, and set your CD-Rom as first boot device. Press f10 to save the settings and reboot with your recovery disk installed
click on START-SETTINGS-CONTROL PANEL- DOUBLE CLICK "SYSTEM"- SELECT THE "HARDWARE" TAB AT THE TOP- CLICK THE DEVICE MANAGER BUTTON-
NOTE: Any entries found here with a YELLOW ! OR ? are drivers the are corrupt, wrong or installed incorrectly. They will need to be uninstalled and new updated drivers downloaded from the internet installed in thier place.
Tell me when did your speakers work fine?
Make sure the speakers are turned on and not set on mute.
Open control panel - click sound option - make sure options are not greyed out here.. if they are then you need to install the sound drivers...
Let me know your computer model number hope that i can paste the link to download the driver..
The monitor has integrated speakers. This means that there should be a headphone jack at the front or side of the monitor. You can plug your (amplified!) speakers into this jack, and it will bypass your monitor speakers.
Hi, Make sure that the speaker cable is plugged in properly or not. Is the system is showing any message ? If its showing any message then reinstall the sound drivers from your motherboard driver cd which is provide with your motherboard. If it not showing any message then make sure that the device is not mute. On the bottom lest corner of your monitor you see an Volume control symbol. Click on that device and increase the volume. Hopefully it should work. Thank you
