No volume My Cambridge satellite speakers work fine with my pc, but no volume at all with my laptop. Do I need a driver update?

    I already have wireless speakers for another project and they work fine. They plug into my laptop via the headphone jack with only one plug. My satellites with sub woofer have two plugs green/black. With the green one, I get sound but absolutely no volume. I have no idea what size these jacks are. Thanks

Do they plug in with a 3.5mm audio jack?
if so, i think you need to check your drivers for laptop output socket.
have you tried output with any headphones etc? do they work on laptop?

    the green and black wires are for surround sound. usually found on 4.1 systems. one for main sound, the other for surround.
    do you have two audio outputs on your pc for both green and black?
    i assume you dont on your laptop. they usually only have a headphone output. try changing the leads between sockets on speakers. also have you tried another cable? it could be that simple.

I am going to guess these are fairly old speakers. I would recommend getting a replacement system.

HELP ! No/limited volume from satellite speakers


1. Make sure all wall and power outlet switches are on and that all switches for your speaker system are on. Cycle the power switch.(switch is located on the back of the subwoofer) Check power LED on left and right speakers. Is the LED on? If not, power is not getting to your speaker system. Make sure the power cord is plugged into an electrical outlet. 2. Ensure that the speaker input jack is pushed all the way into the appropriate jack. Check all the connections and secure them. 3. Check the connection to the soundcard. Make sure it is connected to the proper jack. This varies from each soundcard manufacturer. (Please refer to your soundcard manual.) 4. Your volume settings are too low or muted. Increase your volume by pressing the + key located on top of the right satellite. You can also check your volume through the volume control located in the taskbar. To mute and unmute the speakers, press the + and - controls at the same time.

the part that is for your problem
This is an indication that the satellite speakers are not plugged in all the way to the subwoofer. You will hear a slight "snap" sound if they are plugged in all the way. The inputs are color coded and shape coded (triangle and square). Make sure they are aligned properly.

3 out of 4 of my satellite speakers are not working. All the speakers work through the remaining working satellite port when switched. What should I do?


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this
right click to install driver also
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
if his does not fix the problem

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable)
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps

Had my computer rebuilt and now my cambridge soundworks GCS300 speakers will not work....what do i do


Generally speakers will not need a driver, its more likely your soundcard needs the driver - have you tried anything else rather than the speakers to get sound? If you cant get any sound at all then its your soundcard so you will need the driver for it - otherwise try the link below, its the only thing that comes remotely close to a driver for these speakers -

2.1 SPEAKERS NO SOUND. CONTROL PANEL DOESN'T RECOGNIZE ANY AUDIO DEVICE & CANNOT ADJUST SPEAKER VOLUME.HAVE NEVER HAD SPEAKERS HOOKED UP BEFORE.


> CONTROL PANEL DOESN'T RECOGNIZE ANY AUDIO DEVICE

That's your problem. It could be:

* the audio-device integrated on your computer's motherboard is "disabled" -- Windows cannot use it

* there is *NO* audio-device integrated on your computer's motherboard -- Windows cannot use non-existent hardware.

* Windows has not installed the correct device-drivers for the integrated audio-device.

* you have an add-in PCI audio-device, and Windows has not installed the correct device-drivers for this hardware.

Do the speakers work if the output from an iPod is connected to the input-jack on the speakers?

Do the speakers work if connected to some other computer (laptop or desktop) ?

Well, easy task, just put a music CD, on system and if you got an headphones, put in the green connector on your sound card, pop up the PC volume, and see if you heard sound, if you do, heard sound then the problem is your speakers. if don't is your sound card.
good luck

You defenetely need to RMS your device to support on the place you buy, or company that made the decoder.
it is inside motherboard problem, and it is not so easy to pin point the problem here. but, yes, you has may be a bad modulator inside for the right signal to keep in right volume.
get it to repair shop.

Fluctuation in sound output on Cambridge Soundworks 5.1 speakers


Hi Paulus
A lot brand of speakers, like Sound Blasters, Logitech, Cambridge, has this (strange) kind of volume problem, sometimes, is the resistor, in the volume control, sometimes in the modulator for the board on the sound speakers, Subwofer.
I use a general tip is let the volume in one setting and don't move in the intermediate low volume say....9 .
from other thing, be change the speakers.
