They all use stereo plugs. Make sure you plug the speakers into the GREEN Hole. Also make sure that your speakers don't need any external power, also you might want to make sure you have the sound turned up too.

Let me know the results.

    Hmmm...well do you know for sure the speakers work? Can you try them on another computer? Did you have different speakers before? Have you ever had working speakers on the computer?

    If they do work then I would suggest removing your sound card from the device manager and restarting your computer.

No sound on New computer Packard


Where are you expecting sound to come from? Do you have external speakers? Are they plugged into the right jack on the back? Do they also plug into the wall with a a/c adaptor? Are they part of your display? HP and Compaq Desktop PCs Connecting Speakers or Headphones Windows Vista

I BOUGHT A USED COMPAQ FLAT-SCREEN MONITOR ON EBAY TO USE WITH MY DELL PC, BUT IT ONLY HAS A VERY SHORT UNUSUAL CORD THAT IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH MY COMPUTER & DOESN'T LOOK LIKE ANY KIND OF POWER CORD...


Compaq has a habit of using what I refer to as a "mickey mouse" power cord, (because if you look at the connector upside-down, it resembles mickey mouse).
These cords ARE available in longer lengths at computer stores, but it might be cheaper and easier to simply buy an extension cord to plug it into.

Now, you say not compatible with your computer...are you saying that the computer connector AND the power cord are BOTH an issue, or were you just saying that this power cord would never fit your computer like most other monitor power cords would?

I just need to know if thisHp compaq presario sr2020nx pc desktop is wifi compatible


Yes it is compatible although you will need to fit your own Wifi card. There are two types of card, PCI and USB. To fit a PCI card you will need to open up the PC and install the card into a spare PCI slot. To fit a USB card you simply plug it into any spare external USB socket.

I assume you mean the HDD,reset,on switch etc where they plug onto the mobo.

Most mobos are labelled on the board but you will need good eyesight to read. They are labelled HDD, RESET, SPEAKER etc.

If not simply look up mobo manual from vendors site. You will need the DELL serial / part number from the old unit though.

Can hp speakers connect to dell computers


Hi, The answer is yes it can with 3 ifs;
1. The plug fits in the jack.
2. They must be powered.
2. The speakers are made for computers.

Regular audio speakers will work but not recommended because the magnet can wipe out information stored on Hard Drives.

Hope this information helps.
