On most computers, the audio jacks are color-coded. The GREEN jack is for the speakers, and the PINK jack is for the microphone. If your audio jacks are not color-coded or have different colors, there are also small graphics next to the jacks to help. For the speaker jack, you are looking for a jack that looks like a circle with an arrow pointing OUT from the center.

Hope this helps.

Last night, 4-24-20ll (in the middle of the night) I was watching a video and suddenly there was a crackling noise like static. Then the sound disappeared completely and never came back.


I think a harsh sound damaged the speaker. This is usually caused by software signed to enhance audio performance, such as VLC (which has high sound volume), Breakaway (a so sound-enhancing software, etc. First of all, try uninstalling such programs, or if you have not installed such programs, try restarting your computer several times. Secondly, test other speakers (external) with your computer to see if the problem is from your previous speakers. Hope this helped.

Having speakers to work on vizo desk top . all in on desktop!


You need to remove the unknows first. Try the speakers on another device. You could try a walkman, another computer or anything with an 1/8th" Stereo jack. Prove that the speakers work or get a pair of headphones to check out your PC. If you are using the green jack on the back try the headphone jack on the front. If the front works and the back doesn't check the sound card options / set up. Some have an icon by the time in the bottom right corner others will need to be found under the sound effects manager or the sounds and audio devices icon. I suspect if you get this far something has been turned off in the software.

I need to hook speakers up to my Dell B110 computer.


2 things are needed to get sound from your speakers:

1-wiring connecting your speakers to a socket to the back of the computer. (The spot they need to plug in to ON YOUR COMPUTER is a small light green circular socket. The other end of the plug you plug in here should run to one of your speakers *usually the right side speaker-the right speaker should then have separate wiring to connect the left speaker.)

2- A source of power.
Some speakers use their own power source and plug in to a power outlet - your wall. Other types have a USB type plug and plug into a USB port in your computer and that is how THOSE get their power.

Those are the basics of sound setup. Some computers are equipped with more complicated setups such as surround sound, subwoofers, digital and more. Reply if you need more help, I will try to assist you further.

Hope this helps.

Wires from switch came unplugged (white and black) where do they


Power On switch (Button)? Restart switch? Speakers?Wires came loose from the motherboard?
Should like you to see if you can trace the wires back to the front panel, (Where the Power On button is located
Granted, this may be a little tough in some instances. If you can, ease the front panel loose, and you'll get a better view.

There are usually four to six tabs, coming from the front panel. Two or three on each side. Usually one at the top, one in the middle, and one at the bottom. (On the three tabs per side model) These plastic tabs are eased towards the inside direction of the computer. You will observe that they have a 'tang' on them. You just ease the tab to the inside, until this tang clears the hole, then ease the front panel forward a little. Once you get one tab started, then go to the next tab up, or down. Depends on if you start at the top, or bottom.

This way you can see if this Black and White wire goes to the Power On switch, the Reset switch, (IF used), one of the speaker wires, or one of the LED lamps in the front panel. (Power On, or Harddrive activity lamp)

I also need the model name and model number.
Example: T1090

I have to find an illustration of the motherboard (Try), and be able to tell you, what pins on the motherboard those wires go to.

Now, up front, finding the motherboard specifications for an eMachine computer, is a little tough. Also, there were three different motherboard manufacturers. Makes it a lot of fun.(?)

However, not to despair. I'm pretty decent at finding this info. I have worked on a lot of eMachines, and have a few around my shop right now. Maybe I (we'll) get lucky.

I have a HP pavilion mx70 monitor which is about 7 years old. Suddenly when I switch it on the screen keeps turning a 'rose' color. It occassionally goes back to normal but will constantly turn pink again....


Its the monitor. first I highly suggest upgradeing your computer. But the problem is that over time the connection port in the monitor that hooks the wire up to the computer gets worn down and the solder begins to weaken. And eventully a connection becomes loose or breaks and when the cable is at a certain angle or is moved around the screen can change colors. So if you have this problem jiggle the cable a bit or try to find a position you can put the cable in so that it doesent move around too mutch.

Toshiba Satellite P105 S6124 Power goes off. Jiggling electrical cord at base of computer gets it back on but when it's moved, it goes off again. Someone looked at it and tried a new cord. Determined...


First, the power cord connects to the Power Unit not the Motherboard, so if jiggling the wire causes the fault, it is either the Power Supply Unit or just the plug and wiring that the power cord plugs into.

If you must open the casing, try replacing the Power Unit, but the best solution is to get a computer repair person to look at it.

If you pull the unit apart and start poking around in there, you will almost certainly blow something up with static electricity (and then maybe your Motherboard will need replacing!). Note The voltage of Static Electricity (which you probably can't feel) is THOUSANDS of times higher than the Voltage that your computer components runs on. For comparison connect up a Mains Supply to a 12 volt globe and see what happens (and this is only 10-20 time higher than the required voltage.

Good luck.

Trying to reconnect a set of Harman Kardon candlestick computer speakers to a Dell Dimension E520 computer. I got three plugs and dell has 6 holes...what the heck goes where? Nothing I seem to try works...


Hi rjlevesque

For the speakers, you need only connect to the GREEN jack at the back of your computer. It's OK to leave the others blank.

Your two HK speakers will, with one wire, connect to each other and, w/ another wire (usually having a GREEN connector on the end), connect to the computer.

I'm not sure what the 3rd wire is unless it's (1) the power connector or (2) for connecting to a sub-woofer.

Does the speaker set include a sub-woofer? Or does it include a "surround sound" or 3rd speaker?

You can find pics & symbols (the symbols are helpful if your sound card jacks are not color-coded) for (3) of the most common audio connections HERE.

Usually the color of the connector on the wire is matched to the sound card jack w/ the same color. (green to green; pink to pink; blue to blue).

green = speakers
pink = mic
blue = line in

Make sure you are connecting to the active sound connectors - the ones you used b4 the HK speakers.

If you have "integrated audio" (audio that is built into the motherboard) and you have an audio expansion card installed on the computer as well, one may be disabled or not selected in your computer's audio configuration.

If that's the case (that you have two sets of audio jacks to choose from), try connecting the speaker wire from the HK speakers 1st to the green jack (or the jack marked w/ the symbol of a speaker) at the bottom of your computer. (There'll only audio jacks here if there is an audio expansion card installed on your computer.)

If that is the case, there'll be other (usually) colored jacks running horizontally next to the speakers jack.

If you still have no sound, connect the speaker wire to the GREEN jack that is (usually on Dells) up by your PS2 (round - one purple and one green) keyboard and mouse connectors (also at the back of your computer). The other jacks in that set (of audio jacks) will be situated vertical to one another and on the left-most side at the back of your computer.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

Thank you
BJ
