Try playing around on the volume control panel. The pan might have been played with, along with other things.

No conection from board to speaker


Make sure the sound card is seated properly in its slot. Always make sure the power cord has been pulled out and you have touched something metal to dissipate static electricity. Check the connector from the sound card to the motherboard. Check the green speaker wire going to the jacks on the soundcard. Hopefully your soundcard didn't die, good luck.

Turn off you computer and pull out your sound card if it is external. Then plug it back in the same hole. It may just be loose. If this does not help try another card. If you have a built in sound card try installing updated drivers for it from the manufacturers web site.

There is static on the speakers all the time.


Hi

The static on the speakers can be caused due to many reasons. However, the most common trouble maker is a cut wire or loose connection. Try tweaking the sound settings before proceeding further.

If not resolved then, check whether all the connections are good and wires are not cut. Next thing to check is the power cord, try changing the power socket to see if it is due to the electrical noise caused by power socket.
The last thing to check for is the sound card. Use a headphone and insert it into the same jack where your speakers are inserted and check if you still can hear the static. If yes then the sound card is faulty and if no then there is an internal circuitry issue with your speakers. Please post back for any assistance.

You'll probably need a new sound card but the best way to verify this, is to pull the sound card out completely and use the integrated sound thats on the motherboard, you should see more sound outputs near the ps2 ports where you would hook up a keyboard or mouse.

If you get good sound out of that then you know for sure your sound card is bad, if you get static even out of those sound outputs on the motherboard then you know that your speakers are bad.
